Commercial Pet Food: Is It Truly Good for Your Loyal Friend?
By MiShaun Taylor
As you know, there are many brands of commercial pet foods on the market that you can choose from. In fact, if you’re like most pet lovers, you probably purchased your current dog food based on a commercial or recommendation from a friend. And your motto is, "If it ain’t broke then don’t fix it." After all, your pet is happy, immediately devours the food and just got a great checkup, so you assume that his food choice is perfect, right? Well, hate to disappoint you, but the answer is a resounding "no way."
When you purchase commercial pet food, you wrongly assume that you are getting the best food for your pet. After all, that cute little dog on the cover looks so happy and healthy. Plus, those commercials make the food look so great. Right? What you don’t know, however, is that you could be killing your dog. You see, when you feed your dog commercial pet food, in essence you are giving them waste and animal byproducts from slaughter houses that are unfit for human consumption! Yes, this is true. I am NOT making this up and, no, I don’t work for a food manufacturer. When you feed your dog commercial pet food, you’re giving your beloved pooch waste and byproducts that are chock-full of ground animal heads, intestines, utters, hooves, and maybe even diseased and cancerous animal parts. The food you’re feeding your pet is pure waste and is causing your dog a host of problems while making the pet food industry richer.
In addition, when you feed your dog commercial dog food, you can’t control what happens in the industry. For example, you can’t control what they put or don’t put into the food. So, even if they put in such things as rat poison (which has been found in over 100 brands and has caused numerous deaths), you have no idea. So, the next time you decide to give your dog commercial dog food, think twice. A homemade or raw food diet would be 100 times better and you would know exactly what you’re giving Fido. You won’t have to stress and worry about what he’s eating because you’ll know what he’s eating. And although it may cost more, isn’t your pooch worth it? Of course he is!
