There has always been a controversy between using alternative therapies compared to the traditional approach. This is true between Chiropractic medicine and traditional medical treatments. The same controversy exists between the alternative vet and the traditional vet. Alternative medicine uses a wide variety of techniques that are not recognized by the modern vet community. However, this difference in treatment has been accepted and has gained recent popularity. There is an increasing number of patients that are asking about alternative veterinary treatments. The alternative therapies are usually safer and just as effective as many of the modern medicines and medical techniques. Our society in general is becoming more proactive concerning the health care for their animals and they are examining the benefits and side effects of traditional medicine more closely. A look at alternative veterinary medicine is a natural second step.
I’m now comparing the same course of action for many of our customers that have researched and have decided to switch to a raw food diet as a last ditch effort to save their animal or to greatly improve their health and well being. I would guess that at least 50% of our customers have searched the internet and have found our website and have decided to choose to make a difference in their pet’s health. The remarkable results and testimonials are the life blood of our company. The other 50% are people that are making this choice so that they are taking proactive steps to improve the longevity and health of their beloved pet. Unlike humans that have a choice in what we eat – our pets are subjected to the meals we give them in most cases. The controversy exists between feeding a dog out of a bag or can of highly processed food or to switch to a more natural raw food diet approach. The recent pet food recall with Menu Foods was a wake up call for those guardians wanting to provide the very best nutrients for their animals. Their search for better ingredients and less processed foods has lead them to our company. I guess the controversy will always exist for the best way to feed our pets. I have carved a path for our companies philosophy for over 30 years and still find it to be the food of choice for the selected group that want to feed natures finest food. (The BARF DIET).
