You wouldn't willingly poison yourself, right? So why posion your four-legged friends?
Studies have shown that many "pet grade" foods can be hazardous to your dog's health. Some ingredients have been known to cause kidney failure as well as death!
Pet grade foods are defined as food that is not fit for human consumption but contains moldy grains and allowable levels of plastic and Styrofoam.
On top of this, ingredients in MOST pet foods in stores contain byproducts from animals with the four "D's:" disease, dying, disabled, and death (before the slaughterhouse).
Many believe that if a pet has a home prepared meal, a cat or dog may not get their nutrients it needs. However, there are still many advantages to home prepared meals, especially when compared to pet grade commercial foods, outside of the varying nutrient intake.
As part of National Animal Poison Prevention Week, pet owners can help their companions by looking carefully at the ingredients in the food they're buying.
A healthy pet is a HAPPY pet!
