Your dog, your cat, your rabbit are all animals. I know this is an obvious statement but i just thought i’d remind every pet owner which reads our blog. A lion is an animal too, so is a tiger. Any questions so far? Yes, you sir…what on earth am i going on about?…good question.
When you watch David Attenbrough’s programmes about lions on the plains of Africa, how many times do you see a pack of lions hunt their zebra and then drag it back to base and stick it on the BBQ? You dont. They eat it raw because that is the exact form of food which their bodies require for optimal health. But, this is common knowledge and it’s perfectly normal for you to see lions eating raw meat. Because they are animals. Right?
Now read the opening line of this blog again. Go on.
So, why do pet food manufacturers insist on making dog and cat foods with cooked meat in them. I understand that there will be microbiological issues, but this is clearly not the best form of food for your pets. They cannot process cooked meat properly and it leads to all kinds of problems from bad teeth to poor digestion.
Also, the ‘meat’ they use in their formulations is such a poor quality and quantity, that even if they could process cooked meats, they still wouldn’t benefit from it.
This is a great website if you want more information www.rawmeatybones.com and our good friend Nikki Brown (The Canine Angel) www.canineangel.co.uk is a great person to chat to about this and you can also watch this video she made with her dog Annie if you need convincing further http://www.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/video/video.php?v=168372161374&ref=share. Oh and by the way, Annie, Nikki’s dog, is on The Pet Answer! Good dog!
Over and out,
