No Common Sense?
Hello loyal readers.
I am continuing my Pet Food Myth series..
I researching the subject, I was sent a copy of “Pet Food Myths” from the perspective of a traditional Pet Food company.
Most veterinarians are content selling and traditional food.
They feel comforted by words such as..
“feeding trials”…?? “scientific”…?? “proof”…??
They flat out don’t believe most of the claims and concerns coming from the holistic crowd..
Myth #6..What Your Veterinarian may say and What the “BIG Food Company” may say is NOT based in fact.
Here is what I was sent…
“Many people rely on their ???œcommon sense???? when selecting a food or diet for their pet. In fact, many things we ???œknow???? about our pet?????s nutrition and their diets are not exactly correct, and making nutritional decisions based on misinformation and current gossip can be harmful for our pets.
Explore the following common myths about pet nutrition and pet foods:
Myth #1 ??”Natural” diets are nutritionally better and healthier than commercially prepared foods.
Myth #2 ??Homemade diets are nutritionally better and healthier than commercially prepared foods.
Myth #3 ??Supplements are needed when feeding commercial pet foods because the nutrients are lost in the processing.
Myth #4 ??Preservatives cause cancer and other diseases.
Myth #5 ??Calcium supplementation prevents Developmental Bone Disease in large and giant breed dogs.
Myth #6 ??Vitamin C supplementation prevents Developmental Bone Disease in large and giant breed dogs.
Myth #7 ??Pet Food additives have been linked to auto-immune disease, allergies, and cancer.
Myth #8 ??Pets should be fed bones and raw foods as they ate in the ???œwild.????
It would be best if most pet owners used their brain and fed a premium quality mix of dry and canned food-avoiding supplements,home made diets, Raw food, and the worries about what the additives may cause.”
I would counter every single one of those claims.
We are now seeing Pets with increasing incidences of serious disease: MORE cancer, MORE allergies, MORE autoimmune diseases.
I Believe that DIET is the SINGLE most important factor in this.
There are scientific studies that have found links between food additives and Cancer.
Many large breed dogs do respond better when they are supplemented with Calcium and Vitamin C
I have seen HUGE changes in many pets when they are fed a NATURAL diet- be it made at home with cooked ingredients OR Raw.
DON’T believe everything that you hear and read.
In Fact..Question Me.
But do TRUST your instincts.
It concerns me that the Bag of Dog and Cat Food can last for a Year on the shelf, and its supposedly still a complete nutritional Food.
It concerns me to see the increasing incidence of several diseases.
I have seen hundreds of Pets DRAMATICALLY improve their health with ONE thing..
Switching to a Natural Diet.
RELY on YOUR Common Sense!

It’s Your Pet- Heal Them At Home!
