Feed your Dogs and Cats BARF… Bones and Raw Food!
- Their digestive systems are designed to eat raw (living) meat, not compacted grains or cooked animal byproducts. The stomach environment of wild animals (such as Dogs and Cats despite being domesticated) is highly acidic, meaning they can eat raw meat and ground up bones (for the bone marrow nutrients), and be resistant to the natural parasites, fungi, and bacteria that may be present. When pets are diagnosed with said infections it’s because of an unnatural diet that forces their body to produce less stomach acid (amongst other issues).
- They are have hunter instincts, not leave-food-sitting-out-all-day instincts – this can cause digestion and weight problems as I’m sure most people have experienced with their pets or others’.
- Their dental health (just like humans) is a direct cause and effect of their diet. If they’re constantly eating nutritional-void dry food or even cooked canned food then their body is not able to receive the nutrients needed to keep their teeth and gums (and body) healthy; they are “dead foods” in relation to their digestive needs. Dental issues are mainly a result of nutrient deficiencies.
- Coat and skin health are a result of digestive issues. If a Dog or Cat cannot digest their food properly, are eating an unnatural diet, or are exposed to toxins within their food/environment then the consequences will always show in their [coarse] coat and skin (the same goes for humans).
- Litter Box: Cats are not meant to do their business in a formaldehyde-treated litter box. Most commercial brands are treated with said chemical and also have other sprays and additives that are unhealthy for both the cats and you (to come in contact with and to breathe in)!
- Running with your Dog: Dogs need some exercise, but they should not be incorporated into your exercise routine. When running side-by-side they may show that they’re tired, but they’ll keep going because of they’re natural loyalty to their owners despite their lack of endurance. Dogs do not have the same stamina as humans because they’re meant to sprint after their food, catch it, and then rest for prolonged periods of time (just like other Dogs in the wild).
You may think that the Raw Pet Food is a tad on the expensive side (it costs me around $50 to feed two cats per month), but I think a pet’s health and longevity is very much worth the extra money.
