Carnivore or Omnivore
I believe that the pet food industry is giving it their best shot, but obviously falling short in providing adequate food for domesticated pets. Today’s dogs and cats are being fed scientifically formulated food and receiving expensive allergy shots.
Is The Pet Food Industry Really Doing Their Best?I believe that the pet food industry is giving it their best shot, but obviously falling short in providing adequate food for domesticated pets. Today’s dogs and cats are being fed scientifically formulated food and receiving expensive allergy shots. One can observe the results in veterinary clinics and grooming salons all over the world. Could it be that the current pet food industry, and perhaps some of the health care practitioners are lacking education in proper feeding of carnivores? Yes, I said, carnivores. Do not be misled by the industry's attempt to re-define the image of a carnivore. This misconception helps accommodate their motive for pushing inexpensive, easily manufactured and transported "foodstuffs" (cooked-dried grains and veggies) down the digestive tracts of animals not properly equipped to handle plant matter.
Think About ItCaptive carnivores still have teeth identical to their non-captive relatives in the wild, and no evidence of growing multiple stomachs or longer digestive tracts necessary to break down plant proteins. If our captive carnivores suddenly became non-captive and were able to choose between grains or raw meat, there would be no question -they would definitely prefer raw meat.
The BenefitsThousands of dogs and cats have recovered from seemingly incurable conditions when fed unprocessed, fresh meat - a diet similar to that established long ago by Mother Nature. If you have animals in your care that are not responding to conventional treatment of any condition, then I encourage you to offer them the Mother Nature cure - a raw meat diet that contains all the nutrients of nature's abundance.

Raw Food Tip:
"By looking at young wolves growing up we are actually observing our young pup's ancestors. If we couple that with modern scientific discoveries about diet, health, and aging, we are able to produce a realistic, health promoting evolutionary puppy diet. From studying the eating habits of wolf cubs which are seen to be perpetually hungry, subsisting on raw food consisting mostly of bones and being forced to scavenge a wide variety of foods, we get vital clues about successful puppy raising."
