Cooking For Your Dog is Unnecessary
Friday, 23 October 2015 16:22

cooking for dog

When people tell me that they cook for their dog, I immediately think of Cesar Millan, the acclaimed Dog Whisperer. I could sum up his dog-training philosophy in a few words: the biggest mistake dog owners make is about treating them like humans. You know, spoiling and coddling them, giving them the run of household and yeah, cooking for them. Before you know it you have an out-of-control little monster on your hands.
 
Of course I want to hone in on the 'cooking for your dog' part, something I've always thought of as ridiculous. First of all, carnivores eat their meat raw, freshly killed most of the time. Never in the history of our planet has there been a carnivore that cooked their meals. Only humans do that and before we discovered fire, we ate meat raw too. In fact, consider the Inuit who have mastered their environment quite well over thousands of years while eating raw meat.
 
All this to say is that dogs are meant to eat their meat raw like every other carnivore in the world. Cooking their meals serves no purpose other than to give the dog owner that nurturing feelgood vibe. Aren't we too busy these days to waste energy on silly efforts like cooking for dogs?
 
Bone Completes Raw Diets

Bone should be a part of any cat or dog's raw diet. It's important because it provides your pet with the necessary calcium needed in order to maintain strong bones and teeth. Most people leave it at that, but there's more to a bone than just calcium. In it's whole form, bones are a great way to clean teeth and strengthen jaw muscles.

Consider how crucial this is: a cat or dog's mouth is essentially the main way they interact with their environment. They grab, rip and tear with their mouths and use them similar in many ways to how we use our hands or how an elephant uses their trunk. This is why dental hygiene is of critical importance to their overall health.

Finally, bone is also a digestive binder, it keeps their poop together. Without it, their stools will be loose. A daily dose of bone, whether in crushed form, bone meal or in whole, will ensure firm stools. You'll know if you're feeding too much bone by the color of the stool. Cut down if it's too white and dry. A little on the dry side is okay, it's just one of those things you'll have to judge on your own. And if your pet ever gets a bad case of the runs, the first thing you should do is feed him bone, it will act like a sponge and absorb the extra liquid running through his system. I like adding chicken with crushed bone, a duck neck or a veal tail to my dogs diet.Just remember that no meal is complete without a good dose of bone.

 
How to Firm Up Stools on Red Meat

Red meat is harder to digest than white meat or fish, so it's a good idea to add a little fiber to your dog's meal of red meat. This will ensure an easier digestion and evacuation. I like to add a little bone when I feed my dog a meal of red meat; that way his stools won't be too loose. A veal tail, bone meal or even a couple cubes of chicken with crushed bone should do the trick. Think of the bone as a sponge, it keeps the waste together and combined with some veggies or fruit, it allows an easier evacuation for the dog. 

 
All-natural Food; A Dog's First Choice

Above all, dogs prefer natural, unprocessed raw food. This is why raw diets are an obvious choice over kibble, which is 100% processed. But here's an example to what extent dogs eschew food additives and preservatives:
 
A customer remarked that her dog wouldn't touch the lovely-looking chicken breast she bought at the supermarket, but would eat with gusto our all-natural, free-range chicken. "I think it must be the products they add and use on the supermarket chicken, " she hypothesized.
 
I think she hit the nail on the head with that observation.
 
Read this excerpt from naturalnews.com on commercial chicken and you'll understand what she's getting at.
 
"Those juicy, delicious chicken breasts in the meat case at your local supermarket are more than likely hiding a dirty little secret that might make you think twice about ever eating them again. Most people are unaware of it, but conventional chicken meat typically contains a whole lot more than just chicken, as it is often "plumped" up with brine (salt water), chicken stock, flavor and texture-enhancing chemicals, and even the waste byproducts of other animals that can constitute as much as 30 percent of the meat's total weight."
 
Now imagine how much worse the feeding experience is on your dog when he's eating 100% processed dry dog. If you give your dog the chance, he will eat all natural and that makes all the sense in the world."
 
 
How to Prevent Your Dog's Dehydration With a Raw Diet
Wednesday, 09 September 2015 19:22

A while back an overweight bulldog I know dropped dead from dehydration during a walk. Hate to say it, but I saw it coming. Bewteen the kibble diet, the extra weight he was lugging around, the huffing, puffing and grunting - not to mention the heat that day, this pooch was a walking time bomb. The frustrating part is that he would probably be alive today had he been on a raw diet where the moisture content is over 70%. That's what I love about raw; the dog or cat is always hydrated and this is crucial particularly during the days of summer. It's not rocket science here - it's just common sense. So if your pet isn't already on raw, I think you should give it a shot. You won't regret it particularly during a summer heat wave.

 
Add Veggies & Fruits to Your Dog's Diet

We include a variety of veggies and fruits in our products ; a big hit among the dogs. Here's an excerpt from an article in this week's Globe & Mail that I thought I'd share with you:
 
Veterinarians are beginning to preach the gospel of gardening – primarily how organic fruits and vegetables can be used to improve the health of family pets.
 
Everything from carrots to leafy vegetables and fruit can be added to the cat or dog dish. That saves money on pet food, too.
 
“I’m seeing things like broccoli, cucumbers, apples and pears showing up in animal diets,” said Dr. Eric Patrin, owner of the South Whidbey Animal Clinic in Clinton, Wash. “Many pet owners are using them as treats. Ten years ago, no way dogs would be getting that.”
 
The No. 1 nutritional problem for pets today is that they’re eating way too much, which leads to obesity, diabetes and arthritis, said Dr. Johnny Clark, who operates the Blue Mountain Animal Clinic in Luray, Va.
 
“You can’t exercise your way off a bad diet,” Clark said. “Go with smaller portions. And try introducing green beans. They’re rich in fibre and don’t have any unnecessary calories. They make a good filler and that’s just the ticket for animals needing to lose weight.”
 
Carrots, leafy greens, blueberries and blackberries also are great pet food additions and can be served up raw, steamed or sauteed.
