Many canine parents are becoming aware of the long term effects of commercial dog food on their beloved pooch. If you haven’t, we have provided research links in the citation section.
The starting point is; WHY- the commercial Pet food was created. The short reason is that during WWII processed food was invented and with that came processing waste by products. Companies could make money by selling the waste as “dog food”.
Sure we buy the top of the line – pay the most money to ensure the best for our 4footers, but no matter how much you pay…..processed food is filled with dangers, simply from the process itself.
We need not mention the short term dangers, but we will, that come from dredging the food, whether wet or dry – in grease to preserve its shelf life. They get to label that ‘grease”, precured from waste sold by human food processing plants, as vitamin E.
It’s also worth a mention, that there is an “ash “ content on every ingredient bag or can, because all the pieces of trim waste, the garbage left over from the previously mentioned – human food processing plants---burn the food down to ash to form the slices, chunks “savory “ “looking” food- we like to think we are feeding our dogs.
Same with treats.
Look, human consumption of processed foods has been linked to the rise in Diabetes, Thyroid, issues, Cysts, Cancers, Hormone Imbalances, autoimmune disorders and we HUMANS have FDA standards.
Imagine our canines on a diet of processed, formed, made to like food, day in -day out.
No wonder they to- have seen the same illness triple.
So many have started to turn to Raw or Home Cooked.
We will discuss the Pros and Cons based on lifestyle another day, but because we at Aunt Lyn’s receive so many -appointment calls and emails- asking for a balanced recipe- THAT’S EASY….
