In the mid-seventies there was an article about a Lhasa Apso (dog) who lived a long healthy life to age 29. The dog was fed mostly vegetables, beef, poultry or fish and occasionally rice. Also, the owner opted to skip annual vaccinations.
Overweight and poor nutritional dietary habits will and can induce serious health problems and shorten the life span of your loving pet. Enhancing quality health and years to your pet is as important as the love and attention you share. Care enough to feed your pet the best possible healthy foods.
You are certainly not doing your pet a favor to offer him unhealthy foods. Dogs and cats are actually lactose intolerant,
one primary reason is that the hormones and chemicals are also detrimental to the animal's health. Pizza and slices of cheese
will cause and contribute to annoying health problems such as diarrhea or constipation. Cheese and most other dairy foods are best
to be avoided to prevent D&F health problems. Like people, your dog desperately needs an abundance of vegetables in their diet.
Note that corn and potatoes are Not vegetables, instead they are a tuber and grain like. The dogs compulsion to consume grass
is their communicative way of telling you to feed them more whole high moisture foods the vegetables and fruits.
Too much of a "good thing" will cause or contribute to health ailments. These maladies are similar to human illnesses,
which are manifested from an unhealthy, nutritionally deprived diet. Be cautious and avoid feeding your pets white flour,
wheat, corn and other grains. Grains are generally cheap fillers that save feed companies considerable sums of money.
If you must feed your pets these processed grains, be certain that you feed a whole grain rather than any processed or bleached
pasta or bread. Avoid chips and other junk foods; they will lead your pet down a road of discomfort and disease.
There are some foods that are poisonous and seriously harmful to your pet, especially over the long range.
Weight problems that occur are either overweight/obesity or underweight which is generated by infection or
other health related problems. Attempt to prevent your pet from inactivity, poor diet and or overeating.
Pets, like people become overweight and obese. You, the loving caretaker must stop feeding your pet fatty,
fried, or sweet snacks. Eventually your pet will develop serious cravings, which may lead to serious health imbalances
such as diabetes, etc. Poor quality food and incorrect feeding limits the pet's ability to maintain a healthy body.
To substantiate a healthy lifestyle, your pet needs sufficient proteins, vitamins, minerals, live enzymes and amino acids.
Incorrect feeding will generate an irregular or slow metabolism; this may create an uncontrollable and excessive hunger.
Excess weight and fat adds stress and strain to the heart, disturb circulation and creates any number of other disorders,
malfunctions and shortens the life span. Some positive changes include: altering the number of meal feedings,
reducing the amount of food, improving the food quality with nutritious, higher moisture, low-fat food, plus adding suggested
vitamins and mineral supplements to the diet, that has been recommended by you DVM.
You must resist your desire to feed unhealthy snacks or treats. Remember to increase your pet's activity.
For the underweight problem, you must first confer with you veterinarian to determine the reason for weight loss.
Generally an infection or another problem is contributing to the health issue.
Countless ailments are a definite result of improper foods. Wrong food combinations and harsh toxins such as Cancer-forming
agents, are generally added to pet foods. Many pet foods are incredibly harmful to your pet's overall health.
The regulations on pet food is loose. It is your responsibility to research and educate yourself regarding which ingredients are safe
or unsafe to feed your four-legged KidZ. Your loving pet trusts you, and like yourself, is healthier when he or she consumes foods
free from chemicals, preservatives, artificial colorings, additives and flavorings,
BHA (butylated hydroxyanisole,) a preservative chemical has been proven to cause cancer and behavioral alterations in rat studies.
To be safe, purchase pet foods that utilize all natural alternative like rosemary (an herb), Vitamin C or Vitamin E. The primary reason
for adding BHA to the food is to extend the shelf life of the food, especially foods with oil containing ingredients.
There are a number of additional unhealthy additives that have been deliberately added to pet food. One such example is
Sodium Nitrite. This is predominantly used as a preservative and coloring agent. Sodium Nitrite in food can produce
carcinogenic substances known as nitrosamines. Why add an unhealthy ingredient simply for eye-appeal?
