Feeding Pets Human Grade Organic Food is Best
If you do not wish to deal with balancing your pet’s diets at home, choosing to feed pre-balanced, commercially available raw food, is a great choice.
There are many small, pet food companies now offering human-grade, Organic, and free-range frozen foods that can be fed raw or gently cooked.
A freeze-dried/dehydrated diet is also good, although it is not as good as fresh.
Human-grade canned food is a mid-range choice, but hard to find, followed by premium canned food. Dry foods, even higher-quality human-grade varieties, are less recommended because they are not biologically appropriate for dogs or cats.
The basic goal is to choose foods that will most closely mimic your dog or cat’s carnivorous ancestral diet.
Start by making even slight changes to your pet’s diet, for instance feeding whole Organic foods for treats.
Berries and fresh cubed meats are an excellent choice. You can also offer small amounts, no more than one-eighth-inch square for a cat or small dog and a one-quarter-inch square for bigger dogs, of other fruits melons and apples, for example, as well as raw cheese.
Many cats enjoy bits of zucchini or cantaloupe.
You can also try offering some sardines packed in water, free-range quail or rabbit meat to your cat.
Other treat options for dogs include cubed liver or heart, fresh or frozen peas and raw almonds, cashews, and Brazil nuts, but not/never macadamia nuts.
By feeding your pet healthier treats and moving your way up to a healthier overall diet, you can significantly improve your pet’s health and lifespan.
Today, the good news is that many pet owners are moving this way now, and hopefully more pet-food manufacturers will follow suit by offering more high-quality, human-grade, and non-GMO real-food options for pets.
Eat healthy, Be healthy, Live lively, that goes for pets too!
