One of the most current and controversial issues, which has aroused much curiosity among veterinarians and pet owners, is the use of Natural Foods as the basis of dog´s diet.
In fact this method was already widely used in the "our grandparent's time" where food was usually offered.
With modernity and lack of time, ready-made products based on protein, carbohydrates, fiber and fats have been taking over the market as a source of food for our pets.
What few know is that these derivatives are actually sub - products of animal and plant origin. For example, animal by - products of flour are often hooves, horns, skin, feathers, guts, etc., all of which would be discarded for being unviable for human consumption is reused in the pet nutrition industry. The type of carbohydrate used in this industry is usually corn, which is a type of grain that has very little or no digestibility to the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) of dogs. These foods are also very rich in fat which is attractive to them.
Speaking of digestibility, dogs and cats are animals that came from the desert, and their TGI is not adapted for this type of artificial feeding and dry.
Have you noticed that most packages of industrialized foods for pet consumption have a yellow triangle? Do you know what it means? Genetically Modified Foods
In addition to all chemical additives. They are: dyes, thickeners, palatabilizers, flavoring agents, humectants, emulsifiers, acidifiers, antifouling agents, stabilizers, flavor enhancers.
In my conception of veterinarian and dog and cat owner, it does not have as a food produced in industry and full of chemical preservatives to be healthier than a fresh and freshly made food with love and care for you and balanced and prescribed by the veterinarian.
A home-made food is not profitable for the industries and pet product trades.
The idea that sells to all these consumers is that the feed is the best source of food, the most balanced and nutritious. I am sure that at least once you have listened to your veterinarian saying that your pet can only eat ration (dog food) and that it is forbidden to offer any other type of food. Am I correct? I also, even when I was only a veterinarian or even a medical graduate, working in the area, I also defended this idea. Until Traditional Chinese Medicine came into life. I started studying Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs. I began to observe the excess of drugs that were prescribed on abundant scales and that often did not produce satisfactory effects. From that moment I entered the world of Natural Food making several Courses and prescribing many Diets for my patients with incredible results.
