    Default The Soy Debate....

    I was advised by my breeder (a couple years ago) to never give a bulldog soy...and I've read it other places before as well. However, I purchased a bottle of VitaGlo Dream Coat from Mercola for our dogs and then realized it has soybean oil in it as the first ingredient..... Any advice?

    Ingredients in order: soybean oil, safflower oil, sunflower oil, wheat germ oil, cod liver oil, anise oil, garlic oil, vitamin E supplement.

    We give them all extra virgin organic coconut oil in their food in the morning and I've been mixing neem oil and the coconut oil and applying that topically on one of ours with skin issues. But, when I mix those two and apply it, her skin turns red. Could be the neem oil I guess....

    Thanks!

    The soy will not hurt them, as some dog food companies use it as a protein source, but many dogs are allergic to it, so if they start itching or you notice other allergic reactions, then I would stop using it.

    Do yourself a favor too...no soy for anyone in your household
    especially the males as it also mimics estrogen.

    What is called wheat now is not the wheat our ancestors thrived
    on. It is genetically altered and our bodies can not process it and
    creates inflammation which creates diseases, cancers & other
    chronic illnesses.

    Just say NO to soy, wheat, rye, barley, corn & their saturated oils.

    Thank you! I knew about not giving soy milk to male humans because of its effects on their 'manlies', but did not think about that for furbabies.....DUH! Glad you pointed that out. Barley, though, is used in so many commercial dog foods though - including what we feed ours. We've been giving it to our other dogs (mastiffs and pit bulls) for about a week now. I think it's going in the garbage. Haven't noticed any side effects but it's only been a week....no allergies though, which would have shown up right away. Thank you again for pointing that out!

    Agree with Carol. The new research on soy is nothing but bad all around. The estrogen issue is only one of many issues. Some studies have theorized that the highest rates in the world of ALS Disease in Asian countries are because of the high Soy diets of the people there. I still have some soy sauce with my sushi now and again though

    Fermented soy is okay as it changes it so enjoy a good, fermented, organic soy sauce
    without guilt every once in awhile, I do too, it's my ONLY exception

    Barley, especially pearl barley isn't as bad as the rest of the grains so
    they may not react, hard to say really. You might feed small amounts
    with another food, terrible to have to waste $$$'s, if one of the worst,
    I'd say throw it out. It's wheat, corn & soy that are absolute NO WAY,
    NO HOW! Good luck and let us know, btw, I avoid any oatmeal shampoos
    etc as our skin absorbs it for me & my pets, GOD bless!
