Dorothy Hunter, the owner of Paws Natural Pet Emporium, describes her moment of clarity before she embarked on a month-long diet of dog and cat food thusly: “I didn’t have time to go get a snack, so I grabbed a bag of treats off the counter, and I was like, wow, you know, these read better than normal people treats.”

Since June 19, Hunter has been on a strict and self-imposed diet of pet food only, including salmon flakes, freeze-dried chicken, oven-baked blueberry treats, freeze-dried vegetables, and even “some canned cat food, one is a succulent chicken, and it actually tastes really good.”

Since embarking on her quest, Hunter has even inspired a copycat. Paws Natural Pet Emporium employee Amanda Kempf told the Tri-City Herald, “My kids love the dog treats as well, and I don’t mind them eating those because they are nutritious.”

So far, Hunter says that she’s already seen positive results from her doggy diet. “My feet aren’t swelling as much as they usually do after I’ve been on a 10-hour day,” she told KNDO TV. “I have lost 2.5 pounds, which I’m not going to complain about.”

    I heard of a guy that tried that. He ate dog food and dog treats for an extended period.

    It eventually put him in the hospital, though.

    He was hit by a car while chasing another car.

    I would eat my dog and cat food, only because I know exactly what goes in there since I make their food for them. Don’t judge me because I spoil my critters.

      I believe that Jess. My critters usually eat better than I do.

    My pal ate Bonzo from Monday to Saturday when he was so penniless and couldn’t afford any other kind of food.

    He was arrested on the Saturday for washing his balls with his tongue in Hounslow High Street….
