Natural Pet Diets

Perhaps the single most important factor in raising a healthy pet is nutrition. Of course you will want to make sure your pet is safe from diseases and harmful pesticides including flea and ticks but without a healthy and nutritional diet your pet won’t be enjoying life very long. With a natural and vitamin-enriched pet diet you can help your pet dog, cat or horse live a long and healthy life.

Unfortunately there are many pet food options on the market today and unless you are well versed in all the ingredients that go into pet food you may not be aware of how dangerous a particular brand of food may be or that it was singled out for a recent recall from store shelves. If you want your dog, cat, horse or exotic pet to have the fullest and healthiest life possible look into all-natural pet foods and snacks that are free from harmful toxins and bacteria.

Every year pet foods are scrutinized for the ingredients that are used to manufacture the product and in some cases full recalls are issued when it is discovered that a pet food product contains harmful bacteria such as salmonella and aflatoxin poisoning, a toxic mold that develops from corn used in many types of pet food. In addition to pet foods many pet snacks including pig’s ears, biscuits and rawhide jerky snacks also are at risk for harmful bacteria and if you are not careful when researching the label you may be putting your best friend at an unnecessary risk.

Many pet food products and snacks are manufactured in China where the regulation of pet food is not as stringent as in European countries or in the United States. These mass produced food products often include chicken breasts and other forms of jerky that come from China and may contain dangerous fungal coatings that release harmful bacteria in your pet’s digestive system and can lead to illness and lethargy. It’s not easy keeping track of all the information regarding pet food, most of us have enough trouble watching our own diets but your pets don’t have the advantage of watching out for themselves so it’s up to pet owners to carefully monitor what their pet dogs and cats eat to make sure it is natural and healthy.

If you are concerned about the nutrition and diet of your pet consider visiting some helpful websites that provide up to date information on pet food recalls and other dangers regarding pet foods and snacks. The AVMA website is a very useful resource for keeping up to date on all the latest pet food recall news. Also be cautious of large stores such as Wal-Mart and COSTCO that offer large bags of pet food at discount prices. Carefully read the labels of these products and do some research online to find out if particular brands of pet food have had recent recalls or are known to contain harmful toxins. Another good resource for checking on the safety of pet food is The Pet Food List that has a complete listing of manufacturers that are on recall lists and those that are habitual violators and continuously end up on recall or watch lists.

Results of routine heart worm treatment

"Max the boxer has had quite a life. He was born in Texas on July 25, 2006 and for the first 2 ½ years of his life, he lived with a family who had too much going on to take proper care of him. They had too many kids and other dogs and so Max, being an energetic boxer puppy and too much to handle, got chained to a tree in the backyard. Finally the family decided to give Max up for adoption so that another family could offer him the life he deserved. Unfortunately, by the time they had decided to do that, Max had already been bitten by a mosquito that carried heartworms and it subsequently infected him...."
