Why should you consider making homemade healthy dog food? For your dog’s health and well-being. We’ve trusted the commercial dog food companies for decades, only to find out they’ve been using 1) substandard ingredients and 2) preservatives that have been linked to liver and kidney damage.
So let’s look at some definitive ways homemade healthy dog food can help your dog:
1) No more deadly toxins!
Most commercial dog food companies use preservatives such as BHA & BHT (known to cause liver and kidney damage) and Ethoxyquin (banned from human use) to keep the fat in the dog food from going rancid — for a longer shelf life. No need for any preservatives with your homemade healthy dog food.
2) No more mystery meat!
Have you ever looked at the ingredient label of dog food? What is “meat meal” or “chicken by-product”? By-products are the rest of the animal that isn’t fit for human consumption. If the type of animal is not listed, then it could be anything – euthanized dogs & cats, diseased cows/pigs/chickens unfit for human consumption – the disgusting list goes on. The problem with this type of “meat” is that it can contain chemicals and poisons that are not eliminated through the processing. This means your dog will also ingest these chemicals. With homemade healthy dog food you buy the meat that you feed your family and your dog.
3) Improved digestion and absorption of necessary nutrients.
This can be seen by the size of the stool. You’ll see less waste because the body is able to utilize more of the food from your homemade healthy dog food. The commercial dog food has so much filler to add bulk, to make your dog feel full. But it lacks the nutrients necessary for the dog, so it just goes right through them.
4) Improved immune system in your dog.
Your dog’s body has been living in a state of stress. He has not been getting all the nutrients he needs for optimal function. Once he starts getting the necessary nutrients from your homemade healthy dog food, your dog’s immune system will be able to perform better. This means he will be less susceptible to illness and diseases.
5) Decrease of your dog’s “allergy” symptoms.
A lot of your dog’s “allergy” symptoms will start disappearing – itchy skin, gas, diarrhea, smelly stools, bad breath. A study by William Pollak, DMV, with over 500 dogs of 30+ breeds, showed that a change to a healthy diet, within 12 months, almost entirely eliminated the allergy symptoms in over 90% of the dogs. Start feeding your dog homemade healthy dog food now and watch his symptoms disappear.
