Author: admin, 13.08.2014You may think your dog gulps his or her food because they are greedy, but they are just trying to get it to where all the digestive action occurs as fast as possible.If you believe TV commercials, advertisements and labels, processed food is the only safe thing to feed a dog. I believe nine out of ten visits to the vet are caused by dogs being fed the wrong diet.The quality of ingredients in most dog food is appallingly low, often including meat that has gone off. When dogs eat grain almost all goes in one end and out the other.In short, processed dog food has the same effect on dogs as junk food has on humans. Processed food (dried, tinned or in a pouch) can make a dog hyperactive, lethargic and irritable.
Manufacturers will tell you the canine digestive system has changed over time to be able to derive benefit from grain, but processed dog food came into existence 153 years ago and has been popular only since the end of World War II.Palaeontologists believe it takes, on average, 100,000 years for a species to adapt to a new diet.
Dogs on a natural diet are calmer, more attentive, easier to train and generally better behaved.
The cooking kills off important enzymes - chemicals responsible for thousands of vital metabolic processes - in the food, and alters its structure, making it hard for the dog to digest. They suffer less disease, live longer, smell nicer and produce less waste matter.I gave my own dog, Honey, processed food until five years ago, when an enlightened vet told me I was shortening her life and explained what she should eat.
Humans have digestive enzymes in our saliva and we need to chew our food before we swallow it to give those enzymes a chance to start breaking down the food.Dogs can’t chew this way because they are unable to move their jaws from side to side.
After switching her to a natural diet I was so amazed by the difference in her health I started doing it for friends’ dogs.
Today, I would no more feed her processed food than I would let my children have junk food and fizzy drinks for breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you dissect a dog and a grey wolf you’ll find that their digestive systems are identical.
