"Wanted to let you know how Abbie did yesterday afternoon with the storms we had. Through all of the thunder, lightening, rain and wind she lay at my husband's feet as if asleep. No whimpering, no panting, no anxiety, nothing...all she did was stick close to him. If he moved to another room she followed him. Wow! I see an improvement after a week from 1 acupressure therapy session and the"Calm Shen".

One reason a dog can be such a comfort when you're feeling blue is that he doesn't try to find out why. ~Author Unknown

Hey Carol, Just wanted you to know we took Abbie and Gabe out on the boat yesterday pm to run Masonboro Island. Abbie played like a puppy...romping in the water and on the beach. She even chased the pelicans (has not done this lately). When we got back to the truck, she had no trouble at all getting into it. No stiffness that I could detect. I believe the acupressure sessions are working....Yea! Thanks so much for your help...

“Bella was adopted at about 5-6 weeks old. We began looking
for an alternative to the national branded foods because of the
pet food recall. The Raw Food was the perfect answer. She has
been on it ever since. Her BMs are harder, less smelly, and
easier to pick up. We could not be happier with how she has
developed into a healthy and extremely active young adult.”

"I have been feeding the raw food diet to my dogs for almost 2

When I moved to Wilmington NC I was challenged with finding
a place to purchase the raw food. After exhausting every
option I switched to a very expensive dry dog food
recommended by my Veterinarian.

My dogs were bloated, their coats became dull and my herding
dog mix was shedding like crazy. She was lazy, lethargic and
gaining weight like crazy. I decided this was for the birds and
started my desperate search for the raw food again. Finally I
found Carol Dorsey at Carol's Pet Cafe.

I am a firm believer in this diet. My parents feed the raw food
diet to their poodles in California and my best friend feeds the
raw food diet to her poodles in Florida.

This type of food was intended for our dogs and once you feed
this to your dogs and see the difference you will never want to
change back. Both of my dogs are so happy they jump around
for at meal time and cannot wait to dive in. They never have
stinky breath with this type of diet too!"

C C Rider says, " Thank you for my wonderful
food! I love it and can't wait for my Mama to
feed me the raw diet. I am a rescue and I
have never been so loved. It has made me
feel great and my coat is warm and soft. I
have lots of energy, too. I hope other doggies
are as lucky to have a Mama to feed me this
yummy food".

My 14 year old Walker Hound has been having some nasty health
issues. She would have diarrhea at least 4 days a week. She
stopped eating to the point where we could count every rib just
looking at her. She had no energy, poor thing. I tried everything,
adding canned chicken or salmon to her food. I even changed her
diet to cooked chicken and rice (time consuming and expensive).
The chicken and rice would get her regular again but no matter how
much I fed her, she could not put the weight back on. She looked
like she was being severely neglected and yet I was doing
everything within my power and knowledge to help her.

The worst thing was just watching her lay around so lethargic.
When Daisy was a pup, she loved to run and she was very
enthusiastic and strong. To see her lay in her bed and not even get
excited when we held her leash out to her as we offered her a walk
was just pitiful. She would just lay there looking at us as if to say,
"No thanks. Not up to taking a walk today." Sadly, I began to think
that old age was just taking it's toll on her and she probably would
die in the next six months.

A friend told me about this product and I am a believer!! Go check
out Carol's website. Tell her Coni sent you.


I started both dogs on the B.A.R.F. diet. That is Biologically
Approved Raw Food. To my delight, Daisy ate it right away. I didn't
have to trick or entice her with any added goodies. She sniffed it,
walked around the kitchen a couple of times, went back to her bowl
and ate the food. When it was time for her second feeding, she was
sitting at the "Hey Human, I am hungry!" spot. With no hesitation,
she wolfed down her second helping of BARF.

Within days, her stool stopped running and became normal. Who
else talks about poop but animal lovers and Mommies? If you have
been either, you know how disturbing it is when your "baby" is

We have been feeding our 2 year old beagle mix, Bella, and our
senior grande Dame, Daisy, the raw food diet for about 10 weeks
now. Daisy has put on weight. She loves to go for her walks again
and even has a little bounce in her step. She has even gone for
short runs on her leash. There is a light in her eyes and a shine on
her coat. I don't suspect that she is on her death bed anymore. I am
excited to see if we can get another few years of enjoyment out of

Bella is happy to be along for the ride. She is healthy and sassy
and young. I believe that she is benefiting from this diet as well
and expect that eating so well now will increase her years too.

Hi Carol,

I just want to thank you so much for suggesting that I
give my three dogs raw bones. Like most people I was
under the impression that bones were not good for
dogs--not realizing the difference between cooked
bones and raw bones. Well, the difference I see in all
three dogs is amazing. They love their bones, their
teeth are whiter than ever. The most change I've seen
in Simon, my 8 year old Papillon. Simon had that
terrible curse of "toy dog teeth". It didn't matter what
I did for him, what product I tried, or how often I
brushed his teeth--he constantly had an excessive
problem with tartar, as well as inflamed gums. At
eight years old, he had already had dental procedures
at the vet twice, losing several teeth each time. I
wanted to cry when I looked into his mouth and saw
once again his gums were inflamed and tartar all over
his teeth! I was desperate to not have to put him
through another dental--as putting him under
anesthesia worried me(not to mention the cost of it!).
I tried the raw bones you suggested and was delighted.
Within the first month his gums were a healthy pink,
and best of all--he now has pearly white teeth! Yea!
My dogs love their time with their bones, and I love
the fact that all three dogs have pink gums, fresh
breath, and wonderful tartar free teeth.
Thank you so much for all you do.

Hi Carol,

My name is Tammy Hill and I have two toy
poodles, Abby and Coco. You know them
from dogtrain. The first time that I met you,
you were there when Coco came in for
body work. He had all kinds of problems. I
started him on the BARF Chicken patties
that day.

You saw him at the last workshop at
dogtrain and he was much better. He lost
weight, his nose was not cracked anymore,
his hair had grown back on his bald spot.
He had been previously diagnosed with
stones and other problems along with bad
kidneys and liver. Coco is 11 years old. I
was afraid that I was losing him.

He went to his checkup this week.
blood work came back fine no
problems with his kidneys or liver. The
x-rays showed no stones.

I THANK YOU and Diane for improving
Coco,s life.

We are the owner’s of two one year old
Westie’s, Abby and Izzy, both of which have
skin allergies so severe that they have been
on steroid treatments since they were 6
months old. There are so many health
issues that can be caused by the steroids,
but we were at our my wits end and did what
the vet suggested. A few months ago, we
enrolled the dogs at DogTrain and Diane
(the owner) suggested a raw food diet. We
immediately called Carol and she was so
eager to help us get to the bottom of the
allergy issues that she arranged to meet us
on a Sunday evening so she could talk to us
and look at our dogs. We were so skeptical
about feeding the dogs raw meat…it actually
looked like a chub of hamburger from the
grocery store. But we gave it a shot…and
could see results almost immediately. When
Abby first started the diet, she had no hair on
her back legs, her coat was so dull, she
scratched and chewed her skin constantly,
and had about 7 bowel movements a day.
Izzy was over weight, scratched and chewed
at her skin, had a tan tint to her dull coat and
had to urinate every half hour. Within one
week of the raw diet, their trips outside
decreased to about 3 a day because they
consume much less water and the food is
more easily digested. Their coats were
already beginning to shine and Abby began
growing hair in her bare spots. Both dogs
have lost a couple of pounds and this is the
first time in 6 months that Izzy is at a normal
weight. Now, they both have shiny, full, white
coats and are at a healthy weight. Both dogs
also seem satisfied throughout the day and
they no longer linger in the kitchen waiting
for their next meal. We definitely encourage
every pet owner to contact Carol. We have
been beyond impressed with the dog’s
reactions to the food as well as Carol’s
response to our questions and concerns and
her interest in the health of Abby and Izzy.

Dear Carol,

Thank you so much for your insightful Intuitive reading of Maddy and
You described their personalities to a tee. Now that I know
why they are in my life I will be able to help them both grow
and flourish. I am sure I will also grow as I learn to care for
them and meet their needs.
With much appreciation,

Hi Carol,

I am sitting in my truck listening to a reading I had in early September, I was being told that one of my Guides, a Native American Master Guide who has a very high vibration, will be working with me in my work with animals and herbs and his name is "Chief" . I just wanted to let you know that you were right when you introduced me to the name, "Chief". I didn't know it at the time, but now he is an integral part of my Spiritual Growth in this life and will assist with with my true calling. Thank you! Meg
