Are you tired of going to the vet? Tired of seeing your dog ill or in a sluggish attitude? Tired of the fur and teeth loss? Have you ever thought that the commercial food your dog is eating might be the reason? Well, take a second and think about it. Feeding him kibble or canned is like poisoning him a little more every day. How long would you last on fast-foods? I bet less than a few weeks.
I’m not going to criticize your diet. I, too, eat fast-foods and snacks from time to time (they’re tasty – mainly due to the monosodium glutamate – E621) but I take responsibility for this. However, my dog has no idea what food additives are, what highly-processed means or what is the importance of a healthy diet. I choose his food, I decide when and what to feed my dog. His health is in my hands so I have to make the right choices.
I am aware that commercial dog food is just wrong. I think my dog knows it too…he just can’t say it! I feed my dog organic food, meaning raw, fresh meat or meaty bones mixed with fresh vegetables but also homemade dog food. He loves it!
After the melamine contamination of commercial dog foods in 2007 I believe many dog owners have made the same choice. The results are simply awesome: healthier animals and no more endless visits to the vets. Many pet owners have even credited the raw foods with helping their animals have a longer life.
I know, buying commercial food might be the easiest solution, less time-and-energy-consuming. But….and this is a huge BUT, you’re killing your dog!
So it’s time to stop doing that and make some changes! Next time you find yourself in a supermarket, ready to grab a big bag of premium-branded dog food, just turn around and go buy some ground beef or chicken, peas, green beans and brown rice, cook the rice and the meat, mix everything and serve your dog a healthy dinner.
Cooking for your dog may seem hard at first but if you have doubts about the commercial dog food, as I do, it’s an option worth considering. Also, if you’re afraid to put your dog on a raw diet, cooking for him may be the right alternative.
Homemade dog food is much, much healthier than the dog food you buy from the store. It’s made from fresh, tasty ingredients, in your kitchen with your own hands.
