Thanksgiving’s done - Now give those table scraps to your dog
So dogs, cats, lions and other similar creatures are carnivore by design. In the wildlife, they don’t live off dry, dog food. Instead they live on raw food caught as prey.
In pretty much every other part of the world, except the west, dogs live off the leavings of what humans eat.
In Jamaica, food is cooked for dogs. Typically “turned cornmeal” mixed with meats, bones and other parts.
In North America these days, based on superior knowledge, the best way to feed your dog is with raw meat — and in fact, its sold at a premium in most pet stores. By all indications, dogs tend to do so much better with a natural diet than with dry bagged food.
Commercial Dog Food - Why you should stop using it.
Dogs fed with commercial dog (bagged) food tend to have a larger amount of diseases, organ problems, cancers and in general, tend to have very low energy.
Raw food proponent Dr Ian Billinghurst (owner of the registered trademark ‘Barf Diet' and the BARF World Distributor Network) argues in his books that the dog has evolved over many million years on a natural raw diet and logically, this is the ideal food source. He claims that processed foods are “not what [the] dog was programmed to eat during its long process of evolution” and says that foods similar to those eaten by the dog's wild ancestors are more biologically appropriate.
Pretty much every dog disease, malady or other problem can be avoided by starting your dog off on a raw diet.
A Recipe for Raw Dog Food
We started our dog Tutu on this recipe years ago. I’ve given it to many of my friends in that time.
Where can I get raw dog food?
Well, you can start with the recipe above. But if you don’t have the time to properly take care of your best friend, here are some alternatives.
Finally, your dog is your pet. Many of us treat our dog like a member of our family with the same rights and privileges. We’d think nothing of paying a vet’s bill for hundreds or thousands of dollars.
We even buy organic, grass fed, local food alternatives for ourselves.
Yet why do we forgo the responsibility of nutrition to some company who exists solely for profit? It’s just the same as if you eat Micky D’s every day. Duh.
Start taking responsibility for your dog’s health and nutrition yourself. He’s your best friend, someone who you depend on for security and companionship.
Don’t be lazy my friends.
