Raw Vs Kibble: Vets that Specialize in Canine nutrition
“Although we have come to accept commercial foods as being normal or natural ways to feed animals (and indeed ourselves), in fact they are not. They are simply what we’ve gotten used to in the last few decades. But nothing we can produce commercially ever can rival those mysteriously complex foods manufactured for eons by nature itself.”
“Poor nutrition is one of the major contributors to our pet’s lower life expectancy. By feeding our pets most commercially available pet foods, we are unintentionally depriving these animals of important nutrients needed for sustaining the states of greater Wellness that their genetic material encodes. “The results of a clinical trial suggest that 74.7% of common diseases in dogs and 63% of common diseases in cats can be eliminated without medical intervention over a period of one year with proper diet modifications and an understanding of the healing process as exhibited through healing episodes. Approaching disease from the perspective of health is the most powerful means of eliminating disease. Poor fuel makes for little momentum in life. The commercial food we are feeding is the disease we are treating – so treat on and on, curing one disease after another, again and again. Health is an inevitable by-product of natural raw foods for our pets.”
AAFCO Approval
The Dog food industry is primarly self-regulating. AAFCO provides guidence, but the list of allowable food materials is shocking. The following is a example of some of the ingrediants AAFCO permints for use in pet foods:
Dehydrated garbage
Undried processed animal waste products
Polyethylene roughage replacement (plastic)
Hydrolyzed poultry feathers
Hydrolyzed hair
Hydrolyzed leather meal
Poultry hatchery by-product
Meat meal tankage
Peanut hulls
Ground almond shells
