The previous post talked about some of the ingredients that should absolutely be avoided if you truly want to feed a healthy dog food to your pet. This post lays out some additional ingredients that need to be avoided. It also gives you the good news of a healthy dog food alternative.
Many dog food manufacturers use lower standards as far as the freshness of their food.
Some stamp their food with a “use by” date. But that doesn’t consider the fact that the ingredients may be very old when they are put into the food.
We always hear that “we are what we eat.” This statement is true for our pets.
Poor protein sources, artificial chemical ingredients, lack of fruits and vegetables play a major role in damaging our pets’ immune system.
They prevent our pets from having the ability to fight off free radicals. These ingredients will negatively affect the health of our dog whether it be in allergies or serious disease.
At first your pet will show little if any effect from the inferior food. But over time, they will show signs of allergies – scratching, ear infections, etc. Or it could be in the form of serious disease such as urinary tract issues, kidney problems, lack of energy, and joint issues. It will result in rising vet bills.
The bottom line is that by feeding lower quality food, we are slowly killing our beloved pet.
The good news is that it may not be too late to make a change.
You can make a change to a natural, high quality, nutritious dog food. It will help build a strong immune system and a foundation for solid health. It will allow your dog live a longer, healthier, and happier life.
On the other hand, don’t be fooled by labels that say, “Ultra Premium Formula,” “Highly Digestible,” “High in Anti-oxidants,” “Rich in Omega-3 Fatty Acids,” etc. Don’t believe what you hear in television commercials selling dog food.
The most important thing is to find a food manufacturer that you believe in. I have found that Life’s Abundance high quality dog food is the best on the market. It is very fresh and nutritious. With this company, you can communicate directly with the veterinarian who formulates the food and ask her any questions you have.
