Current News

Because of our low, mail order, Internet prices and the amazing demand for our "wholistic" consulting and revolutionary products, we limit every inquiry (e-mail and telephone) to 15 minutes in order to help all those in need. After the first 15 minutes we charge our normal consulting fee. Please make use of all the free resources available 24 hours/day, by clicking on the buttons in the left-hand menu of every product page (Ingredients, Usage, FAQ, etc.). Thank you in advance.

Pet Food Recalls

The pet food recalls continue. The best "wholistic" suggestion to prevent danger to your pet is: STOP feeding dry kibble dog food. In our "wholistic" opinion, dry kibble dog food is the least nutritious form of food to feed a carnivore. Furthermore, a majority of all pet food recalls is with dry food. Canned food, freeze-dried food and raw food have a much lower percentage of recalls. For the latest recalls, go to:

Dog Food Recalls or FDA website

Don't Want You to Know


Grain-Free Foods Linked to Canine Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM): Part 2

Kate Solisti, our dear friend and animal associate, has been hearing a lot of scuttlebutt regarding the dangers of feeding "BEG" (boutique, exotic, grain-free) diets because of the FDA's scare from their study, Potential Link between Certain Diets and Canine Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM). It is not surprising that this misinformation is coming from the traditional pet food industry and conventional Western veterinary community. They actually promote going back to feeding a grain-based dry kibble diet as healthier. We urge you to uncover the truth for yourself and your furry children (before it is too late) in our first August newsletter, reprinted below, and register for our free Zoom teleconference meeting on August 21: "Grain-Free Food Scare and DCM (Dilated Cardiomyopathy): Our Truly Holistic Perspective"


After publishing our July newsletter, FDA Investigates Potential Link between Certain Diets and Canine Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM), we have heard that some peopleheart are confused and even scared in deciding what is good for their pet. While avoiding grains in dry kibble food, have they now subjected their pet to possible heart conditions? Our good colleague and great animal communicator, Kate Solisti, has been keeping a close eye on the situation and been gathering more details from pet store owners, holistic pet food manufacturers and holistic vets. Discover the details in her July blog:  Update on DCM and Dog Food Worries

The FDA began an investigation (July 2018) into reports of canine dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) in pets eating certain foods, many "grain-free" labeled, that contained a high proportion of peas, lentils, other legume seeds (pulses), and/or potatoes in various forms (whole, flour, protein, etc.) as main ingredients. Main ingredients are listed within the first 10 ingredients in the ingredient list (before vitamins and minerals). The FDA believed there was a potential association between these grain-free diets and DCM in dogs caused by multiple factors and required scientific investigation. For more details on this preliminary report, go to:

FDA Veterinary News

In our July newsletter, we gave our holistic reasons why these grain-free foods might be poor holistic choices:

  1. Substituting one group of undesirable ingredients (grains) with another questionable group (legumes) for carnivores.

  2. Legumes were not prepared in a holistic manner, thus exposing pets to enzyme inhibitors that block digestion, as well as phytic acid which blocks mineral absorption.

Do not be swayed by all the misinformation and misleading Kate Solistiadvertising by the large conglomerate pet food companies. Our animal colleague, Kate Solisti, has decided to host a Zoom Cloud Meeting teleconference call along with Russell Louie, to give you the latest updated holistic facts and answer any questions you may still have, in helping you decide what is best to feed your pet. Kate has graciously opened this call up to non-Harmony Pack members (Kate's membership community). Make sure you register below and install the Zoom applet on your PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone or Android device BEFORE the day of the call. This teleconference meeting is free for all Optimum Choices' clients. This will be an in-depth discussion about the recent scandal regarding grain-free dog foods and DCM. Discover our holistic approach and why we feel taurine is not the only issue. You will come away with truly holistic info and tools to make the BEST decisions on feeding your dog today and always.
