Thousands, maybe even millions of concerned pet owners are wondering what the best feeding approach should be for their dog. Maybe the concern is because of a recent medical condition that has surfaced, such as severe allergies or skin conditions. Or, maybe it is just their intention to try and feed their dog a diet that is most appropriate. If this is the case, then this is when they go about their search for the “cure” or the better nutrient based product. Most will start their search on the internet, and soon they will be inundated with an unbelievable amount of hype, scientifically supported sales propaganda, and scare tactics that encourage consumers to gain beneficial advantages from feeding a heat processed, grain based dry dog food. It is little wonder that most pet food guardians are led down this primrose path. Not only does the search for a better product become confusing, it unfortunately becomes a process much like a human counterpart looking for a medical miracle for a condition related to a life of consuming improper nutrients.
Let me relate what I have experienced after spending 33 years of promoting a most appropriate nutrient based food for our nations pets. It is uncanny, but in most cases I see the search starting for a diet change once the animal reaches an age of about 5 or 6 years. It is at this point that most of our customers come to us, and request information on what can be done to improve the health of their companion pet. Can nutrition play such a large part in making a turnaround in their health? Or should they turn to the medical field and treat the conditions with modern drugs?
I must relate that my experience has shown that two reasons exist that make the biggest difference in a turnaround medical miracle. One is that the continuous ingestion of a diet that contains an overabundance of chemicals, flavoring agents, pesticides, and herbicides, is a formula for long term disaster. The second factor for improving health is to rebuild the internal immune system, because this is the best healing mechanism known to man. It is better than man made artificial drug intervention. In a short time, by improving the nutrient based daily ingestion of non-heat processed dry food and by ingesting nutrients that rebuild and regenerate immune system health we can develop a course of revitalized health for most medical conditions. It is amazing to watch the difference in attitude of the animal, his/her interest in eating and enjoying their food, and watching natures miracle happen before their eyes. The testimonials generated from 3 decades of manufacturing and selling raw food diets become the life blood of our business. It is the turnarounds and the customer excitement that we see that comes from improving the health of their animals and that keeps us going in this business. We are not selling a product merely to gain a financial position. It is much more than that! It is the reward we are after. The reward is seeing the health improvement benefit from feeding a diet that is designed for the species. I call it “putting the right gas in the tank” feeding. Maybe it is because of the live enzymes in the food. Could it be that the ingestion of life giving phytonutrients make the big difference. Whatever it is that makes the difference- doesn’t matter. What does matter is that by making the change we see the difference in the health of the animal. This is the reason that so many people are finding that feeding a live, natural, source of nutrients to their dog improves their health. Is it any different than for ourselves?
I suggest not! Junk food for humans is no different than junk food for animals. In the end or over time they both will do their harm.
