The Three Biggest Problems with Feeding Your Dog Commercial Dog Food

The Three Biggest Problems with Feeding Your Dog Commercial Dog Food:

1. Grains, particularly cooked grain is not a food the dog has evolved to eat in large quantities, and yet that is precisely what the pet food manufacturers add in large quantities to canned and dry pet foods. Therefore, most domestic dogs eat a diet based largely on grain which includes most canned and soft moist foods and practically all dry dog foods. Commercial dog foods are based on grain because it is cheap and available and not because it is the best food to feed dogs. Unfortunately, grain-based diets are implicated in all sorts of allergies, diabetes, skin problems, pancreatic problems, and other health problems such as inflammatory conditions.

2. The vitamins added to pets canned and dry foods are harmful to your Pets liver and kidneys. Vitamins are intricate, interrelated, integrated, united organic nutritive groups. Nature made them as an indistinguishable part of foods for the benefit of human health. Vitamins are inseparable as working nutrients from trace elements, minerals, proteins, and other elements. Chemists have attempted to isolate and identify some of the components of these food complexes, labeling the seemingly “active” elements as vitamins or other nutrients. Yet there is no possible way that even the sum of the parts is equal to the whole. It is only the whole food, intact and unaltered, that works as a nutritional source. The isolated parts are not recognized by the body as foods. In large amounts, such isolated chemicals function more like drugs, which stimulate or suppress biochemical functions, not provide vitamins for the cells to carry on their vital activities.

Natural, food-source vitamins are enzymatically alive. Man-made, synthetic vitamins are dead chemicals. Optimum pet health requires “live” biochemicals. It is simply a matter of chemistry versus biochemistry.

3. I could go into more detail to explain this statement, but other individuals and health professionals have already done a terrific job in explaining why such diets are toxic and harmful to dogs’ liver and kidneys. Carrie Clayton wrote a well-researched article

When you read Ms. Clayton’s article and the books we referred to, you will learn the truth about why some of the first ingredients in these commercially prepared pet foods such as different meats, meat by-products, corn, soy, and oil by-products, are toxic to your dogs’ liver and kidneys.

However, I’m sure some of you who will read Ms. Clayton’s article will say: “But we feed our dogs organic commercially prepared pet foods, so how can the ingredients be toxic?” It is true that the organic commercially prepared pet food diets are a step better than the agri-business pet food diets because some of them do use human grade meats, vegetables, and oils. Yet even though the organic meat and vegetable ingredients of these diets are good, the rest of the ingredients are still as toxic as what is in the agri-business commercially prepared pet diets.

The toxic ingredients we are talking about are the assortment of vitamins and minerals added to canned and dry pet diets. Also, grain ingredients in many of these pet diets are quite harmful to your pets. Here is an example of a well-known organic pet food diet. These red ingredients are toxic to your dogs’ liver and kidneys:

Organic Brown Rice, Chicken Meal, Organic Oats, Organic Millet, Organic Barley, Organic Sorghum, Organic Canola Oil, Organic Flaxseed, Chicken Fat (Naturally stabilized with Mixed Tocopherols), Dicalcium Phosphate, Natural Flavor, Calcium Carbonate, Potassium Phosphate, Sea Salt, Mixed Tocopherols, Yucca Schidigera, Organic Rosemary, Choline Chloride, Zinc Proteinate, Ferrous Sulfate, Zinc Sulfate, Vitamin E Supplement, Vitamin B-12 Supplement, Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Taurine, Manganese Sulfate, Niacin, Riboflavin (Vitamin B-2), Copper Proteinate, Copper Sulfate, d-Calcium Pantothenate, Vitamin A Acetate, Inositol, Folic Acid, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B-6), Thiamin Mononitrate (Vitamin B-1), Vitamin D-2, Biotin, Potassium Iodate, Cobalt Sulfate, Vitamin K1 Supplement, Sodium Selenite.

These ingredients are NOT toxic to your dogs’ liver and kidneys:

Natural Chicken, Organic Potato, Organic Peas, Organic Carrots, Organic Spinach, Organic Cranberry, Organic Tomato, Dried Kelp, Organic Parsley
