The Truth About Commercial Pet Food

Commercial pet food is quick, easy and convenient. It is also toxic. Even so called prescription diets are manufactured with waste from the food industry that did not pass FDA inspection for human consumption.

The FDA defines meat by products as follows:

Ground up hooves, hides, beaks, entrails, diseased and disabled carcasses, cancerous animal tissue and blood soaked saw dust from the floor of slaughterhouses. These “meat” by-products make up 40% of most commercial pet food. The rest is grain – soy meal condemned for human consumption due to rancidity, mold, debris, bacteria – ground corn cobs, peanut hulls (very high in pesticide residue) ALL NUTRITIONAL WASTE then we have chemical contaminants – farm animals are fed a heavy mix of chemicals; hormones, growth inducers, pesticides, antibiotics, vaccines – all these chemicals remain in the flesh of the slaughtered meat. (Yes, the meat on your dinner plate included.).

Wait! There’s more. More chemicals must now be added – artificial flavorings and coloring, sugar, salt and preservatives. One of the most prevalent preservatives is ethoxyquin. Ethoxyquin is a rubber hardener and pesticide believed to cause liver and kidney disease, cancer, immune diseases, deformities and thyroid problems.

Still not scared? Read Ann Martin’s The Food Pets Die For for (warning this is not for the faint of heart).

All of us would do best by eating a live, natural organic diet. Our health is determined by how we nourish our bodies. You can raise a healthy dog by making a simple choice. Feed real food.

The Truth About Vaccines

Vaccines have a complex contradictory history. The manufacturing of vaccines is a multi-billion dollar industry. Pharmaceutical companies push all the products they can, even if it takes creating new markets.

Before you vaccinate, feed your head. Get informed.
