I believe it is a waste of time and money and in many cases, health. Don't get me wrong. I understand why many people choose commercial foods. I have empathy for the desire to have a convenient shelf stable food stuff, just a scoop and done situation. I am a pet owner living in this society. I am all too familiar with what it feels like. I want convenience too.
I want to have more free time as well. However, I do not believe the way to get that is to try and skip on the education and understanding how nutrition is the foundation of health. It's the pets who suffer the most, and they can't tell us when they feel down in the dumps. How about taking these matters into our own hands by firstly, changing our own minds about pet nutrition. Negative concepts of animal sourced foods (cooked or raw) are make-believe, man-made and invented. We make them true by blindly believing them.
“When you change your mind, and start living according to your new points of view, you begin changing truth.”
I am interested in creating a new truth. I believe all carnivore pets can thrive and eat the way nature intended. It's our responsibility as pet owners to do right by those in our care. They bring fun, desire, and companionship to our every day lives. When we find ourselves feeding them the biologically appropriate way, exactly as we should, we begin to see a more vibrant fur angel and less sick trips to the vet.
That changes how enriching pet ownership can be. Feeling good and confidently informed about the choices for our pets takes away stress and hardship from pet ownership. Vet trips don't have to be because your fur buddy is sick, they can be happy once a year visits to make sure everything is just dandy.
The cheap bags of kibble doesn't save us money or hard emotional stress when our beloved pet falls sick. The unnatural ingredients, chemical additives, synthetic vitamins/minerals that have been obliterated by a food manufacturing process does not provide health and vitality to pets who consume them. The lack of true, unbiased science and transparency into pet food, nutrition and health does not allow us to make informed decisions for the betterment of our pets lives.
By making the choice to learn, compare and question what pet food companies tell us against basic factual science we can begin to see the whole picture and know how to vote with our dollar towards the betterment of pet health. When we embrace a true understanding, we can make sure our pets are healthy and vibrant for years.
