I thought I’d write a few articles about feeding your cat and dog for better health and long life. I know there are people who love their pets as much as I do. I wanted mine to always stay healthy and live long. But, they were having problems when they got old. It really bothered me and I set out to do something about it before I lost them both.
I have an old cat and an old dog. So, I did research into making their food healthier. I know that how we humans eat affects his health for better or worse. My pets are such an important part of my life, I just had to do something. I felt helpless, so I took matters into my own hands. Even vets don’t usually know about nutrition. Same as our human doctors.
I discovered through my own research that that my cat’s kidneys were being affected by the kibble he ate. It was simply too much protein. Cats don’t need over 30 percent protein and neither do humans. More like 10%. Same goes for dogs. All this talk about high protein needs in animals and humans is simply a lot of rubbish!
I found a cat food that was easy on my old cat and I decided to make my dog’s food from scratch. Check out what I did here…
You know, their lives are solely in your hands and what you feed them does matter immensely. Don’t leave it to the dog food people. And when a manufacturer says there is no grain in their food and an ingredient is ‘rice’ I then know they don’t know zilch about nutrition. Cats and dogs don’t need carbs, grains or starchy vegetables. I laugh when I see potatoes as an ingredient in cat food.
They don’t need to eat any grain or tubers at all. That stuff is for pigs, horses and cows. Furthermore, we don’t actually need it, too. Grain really isn’t that nutritious. Yes, it has fiber, but there are other sources for that a lot more nutritious and health giving.
So, don’t believe all that talk about grain is good for you and your pet and that we and they need a lot of protein. Not true at all. They only want to sell you their pet food and high protein supplements. It’s up to you to take charge and save you and your pet’s life. Human and pet food manufacturers are in the business of making money, not taking care of you and your pet’s health and well-being.
Note- If you have any doubts about what to feed your dog or cat, you might want to check with your vet before you change your pet’s diet. I can’t guarantee your dog or cat’s health through diet alone. All I know is because I changed all my pet’s food, they healed and their health improved. It saved their lives in the nick of time. But, the same results may or may not be true for you
