Nothing pains me more than suffering dogs. I love them with a passion, my dog, your dog, anyones dog! For me they are the animal de jour and I want the best for ALL of them the world over.
With that said, my mission is to help you to help your dog live a life of rich experience, love, fun and boundaries. If your not sure on the boundaries part, this is where a dogs world is framed by what he or she can and cannot do which helps them to understand exactly how they fit into your world…a bit like kids! This is to ensure your dog is happy in the knowledge that he or she knows where they stand and can relax in that knowledge.
In this article, it’s the nutrition part that takes center stage and it’s key to your dog having a rich experience of life or a dismal one and depending on how much you value your canine friend, has a huge effect on the richness of your experience with your pet.
Natural Raw Dog Food For Dogs With Allergies
A lot of dogs suffer with allergies, possibly up to 75%! It’s one of my biggest email requests for help to solve the problems which can be many and varied.
Here’s a short list:
- Paw licking
- Incessant scratching
- Itches in certain places that appear normal but cause your dog to attend to them by licking, scratching, pawing, otherwise known as hot spots.
- Ear infections
- Build up of waxy, dirty, orange/yellow/brown gunk in the ear canals up into the parts you can easily see.
- Bald patches on skin
- Reddish/jaundiced hungover looking eyes
- Dry cracked nose
- Runny nose
- Warm dry nose
- Excess hair loss or shedding
- Irritable behavior
One particular aspect of your dog’s nutrition I have been harping on about for years is this – and I want you to practice it from THIS DAY ON…
ALWAYS give your dog filtered water to drink—>ALWAYS! (NEVER, ever, ever, ever, tap water). Bottled, rain, creek (if it’s clean) water will do too. Simply put in a very non professional way, tap water is crap. It’s toxic and full of chemicals, all flowing into your beautiful dogs body to do untold damage over time.
I’m not going to go into the why’s and wherefores, I’ll let Collen M over at Renegade Health explain one good reason why you will be watering your dog differently from this day on.
Major Dog Food Brands Contaminated with Fluoride
Though there is a lot of conflicting information out there, one thing we’ve learned is that just because it’s on the shelf doesn’t mean it’s good for our dogs.
In 2009, for instance, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) found through independent laboratory testing that eight major nutritional brands of dog food contained high levels of fluoride, a contaminant that can put dogs’ health at risk. The amounts ranged between 1.6 and 2.5 times higher than that recommended by the Environmental Protection Agency as the maximum legal dose in drinking water.
Scientists don’t yet know how much fluoride is safe for dogs to consume, but they have found that excess fluoride in people can cause weakened bones and increase risk of fractures. The chemical is also linked with hormonal disruption and neurotoxicity, and potentially to bone cancer….More at What’s the Best Diet for My Dog? Should I Try a Raw Dog Food Diet?
