Our Dogs Need Fresh Food in Thier Diet For Life Long Health

The make-up of commercial dog foods is not only a wide range of rendered spoiled waste products but a number of chemical toxins as well. Dead, disabled, diseased and dying animals and any drugs or antibiotics they may have been pumped with before expiring have been proven to survive the rendering process. Knowing that the overuse of chemicals and antibiotics leads to an eventual breakdown of immune systems, it is obvious as to why there are so many dog breed health problems. Without the adequate nutrients to rebuild and heal themselves, it is almost a given to experience dental problems, skin rashes, arthritis, heart murmurs, cataracts, various allergies, cancer and many other recurrent health related illnesses.

Accepting this viewpoint is what keeps owners from searching for better answers, leaving them trapped in an endless cycle of vet visits, expensive treatments and thousands in vet bills.

A Natural Diet IS Complete and Balanced

A wholesome raw diet offers a natural assortment of enzymes and building blocks that any and every dog needs to heal their system properly. The sooner you get your canine companion on the right track, the faster life can balance out to a happy existence that is steady and long term.

What commonly happens on a commercial dog food diet is that the immune system is broken down by chemicals; yet, when the dog is taken to the veterinarian, he or she is given more of the very thing that is breaking down the immune system to begin with. The result is a temporary healing followed by a relapse that requires an even stronger medicine or antibiotic. It is a dangerous and, many times, fatally unnecessary cycle. This is not the case with uncooked meat filled with nourishing enzymes.
