The concept of clean food has been around for quite some time now in the human world.
We have access to poor-quality, highly processed chemically preserved diets. Our busy lives and tired bodies encourage us to reach out to these types of diets more often than not. Chronic diseases such as heart problems, diabetes, and auto-immune-related disorders are on the rise since we have sedentary lifestyles and low-nutrient diets.
I don’t see why this would be any different for our dogs, and that is why they find themselves in the same situation. We feed them mainly pet food, which is very far from their natural diet in the wild. If they are lucky they would get some chicken every now and then.
There is a ‘health epidemic’ in the dog and cat world. We vets see serious diseases more now than ever.
We humans are advised to exercise more often, eat mainly fresh, nutrient-dense foods, and only occasionally have takeaways or ready meals to keep fit and healthy. I compare a takeaway with pet food. I have decided to follow this advice for my dogs and patients and hope you are on board with this too. Why? Because it makes total sense.
We are all animals with different dietary requirements but a common factor is that we all need real food.
‘There is no way you’d catch me eating dry food from a bag of pet food, gross!’
A dog’s diet in the wild is based on mainly meat, then skin, organs, digested vegetables from the intestines of small prey, vegetables, wild fruits, herbs, and some nuts.
The dry ‘biscuits’ or wet pouches we feed our dogs and cats on a regular basis are far from their natural food.
By feeding your dogs natural food, you will see common health issues such as poor skin, hair, and stomach problems fade away. It will also improve metabolic health, dental hygiene, and difficult behaviors.
What we feed our animals determines their physical and mental health more than anything else. This is why it is important to educate ourselves on nutrition.
Spoiled Hounds facilitates in spreading the message to create health and vitality among our beloved dogs, enriching our lives greatly by doing so. Our dog’s quality of life improves significantly. Therefore, they stay around us for longer.
I love using Renee’s treat ideas to encourage our sometimes ”fussy eater friends’ to eat fruits and even some vegetables.
Renee has definitely put her heart into this project and her advice on dog treats is very well researched and valuable. I am ever so grateful for her helping us all.
My name is Pamela Alvarez. I am a functional Veterinary Surgeon. My mission is to create health and happiness for us and our beloved dogs and cats around the world.
I had a best furry friend called Freddie who inspired me to do this project and to write a book to teach people how to safely feed their dogs a complete, natural diet. It is quicker and more convenient than would you think, once you have learned how to do it.
To know more about Freddie and to learn how to cook for your dog, check out my website Vetpam.com. I will be uploading the book to the library soon.
Thank you for loving your dogs back as much as they love you.
