In today's world pets eat on a regular basis and are thus not starving for food, but they are starving for nutrition! Read this sentence again if you have to.
If pets are eating on a regular basis, then why would they be starving for nutrition?
A body will be starving for nutrition when the food eaten either provides insufficient nutrition, is a source of poor quality nutrition or the body cannot efficiently assimilate or utilize the nutrition from the food.
Signs that your pet is starving for nutrition include a pet that eats stools, eats garbage, is always begging for food, has an endless stomach, is always hungry and is generally always looking for something to eat. Why do pets eat stools, as an example? It is because stools provide an additional source of nutrition and as yucky as it seems to us, pets that eat stools, vomit, etc are instinctively looking for more nutrition. I am happy to report these problems begin to go away once the pet is eating wholesome foods on a regular basis.
Of course there are many other signs that your pet is starving for nutrition including numerous health problems. A thyroid problem can indicate, as a simple example, that your pet is starving for iodine as iodine is the mineral that helps to regulate the thyroid.
Nutrition is fuel for the body and unless the body has a nutritional fuel tank that is filled up at every meal, then the body will always be like a car running on empty.
It has been said that 90% of health problems begin as a result of poor nutrition. The lack of nutrition can be during adulthood, puppyhood, kittenhood or while still a foetus depending on its mother for nutrition. If we stop for a second, paws and then observe just how many pets are sick in today's world and how many veterinarian clinics there are in every town and city, then you, like me, might begin to question the quality of nutrition our pets are getting from commercial pet foods.
Your mother probably told you
you are what you eat and your father probably told you that
an apple a day keeps the doctor away and your doctor should tell you
an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. My book addresses all 3 of these adages.
My book is obviously about feeding a wholesome and natural raw meat homemade diet for dogs and cats and I make no bones (pun intended) about this! I am biased in my opinion but that's only because I've found an approach that makes sense to me.
Why does this approach make sense to me?
Feeding a wholesome raw meat diet makes sense to me because I prefer not to focus on the word
raw but rather on the word
wholesome. Nobody can deny that our pets, just as we humans, need wholesome foods for good health. For some, they will think that commercial pet foods constitute a wholesome diet and that's fair enough. To each their own. But for myself (and hopefully for you too), if we
meditate on what constitutes a wholesome diet then our thoughts should lead us to a diet that most closely imitates and resembles what Mother Nature herself would feed.
No diet is perfect, but feeding a wholesome raw meat diet is as close to perfect as dog paddling is to free style swimming!
Pets today are not starving for food, but they are starving for nutrition. If you can understand and grasp this thought then you will not only know why my book is entitled
Pets Need Wholesome Food Also but you will also thoroughly enjoy what my book has to offer you.
