Many now suffer from what are preventable diseases…did you know that 46% of all dogs die of cancer, 40% are overweight and scores more suffer everyday from allergies, ear infections, skin conditions, dental problems and other ailments…
When you learn the awful reality about the toxic ingredients in some commercial dog foods it will shock and sicken you and, once you know the reality of the health benefits in feeding a dog a homemade diet, you’ll want to make an immediate change. If you stop feeding only commercial dog foods to your dog on a daily basis, slowly introduce fresh meats and vegetables and then stop commercial dog foods completely, you’ll save him or her from needless suffering and save yourself a mountain of veterinarian bills, as well.
Now, here are some of the realities about some commercial dog foods and also some of the benefits of feeding a dog a healthy homemade diet…
1. Reality: Do you know that some commercial dog food is really dog “junk” food? If burgers, fried chicken, french fries, etc., eaten as a steady diet, can cause serious health issues in humans, what does dog “junk” food” do for dogs? Generally speaking, a canine’s genetic makeup and nutritional requirements resembles that of humans. If we’re damaging our own health by eating “junk food”, what can be happening to our dogs when we feed them the equivalent, “junk” commercial dog food?
2. Reality: Do you know that the foods we humans eat are also a healthy choice for our dogs? Whatever else you may have heard, the same wholesome, nutritious foods we eat are a terrific choice for dogs. However, there are certain differences between human and canine nutritional requirements so you’ll need to learn what they are if you want to feed your dog a healthy diet.
3. Reality: Do you know that if your vet sells dog food it also may not be such a great choice? Just like our own medical doctors, veterinarians aren’t taught too much kaneles about nutrition in school. Most of what they learn is taught to them by the representatives of the pet food companies such as, on staff company vets, sales reps (do you think maybe they promote their own products?) or else through various studies, articles, and seminars. It’s not very likely that your vet knows the difference between good and bad food if they personally haven’t studied about it or tried raw or homemade diets themselves.
What may be happening is he or she is operating on obsolete data or”old wives tales”. Some vets even profit from selling a certain brand of dog food and that may very well prejudice them against other brands or other forms of feeding a dog, such as home cooked dog food.
4. Reality: Do you know that some processed commercial dog foods can actually be hazardous to your dog’s health and can cause numerous medical issues? It’s legal for dog food companies to include “4D Meat” (“Dead, Dying,Diseased and Disabled” ranch or farm animals). In addition, they often add road kill (dead raccoons, possum and other animals killed by cars, trucks or disease), dogs and cats euthanized by vets, picked up by animal control workers and brought to dog food companies’ renderers for processing, powdered mill factory floor dust (they call it”grain”) and what they call “corn” (usually ground left over husks) that’s contaminated with very high amounts of pesticides. What some pet food manufacturers are putting into dog food and disguising as “ByProducts” is borderline criminal!
