More on Making your own Dog Food:
Is “people” food unsuitable for dog food? “Experts” from the dog food industry say not to feed table food to dogs. They say you can’t get the precise amount of vitamins and nutrients. Hmmm, doesn’t that sound like the lie told to women about breast milk. Mother’s milk is not as good as a formula created by a company that just wants to make money. Most vets will tell you: Your pups will die from salmonella, e coli, perforated bowel, choking on bones. Sounds pretty grim; but where does this come from. We have talked before about how bad store bought dog food is before. have you ever heard of Pottenger’s Cats? A 10 year study was done way back in the 1930’s on almost 1000 cats. The cats had a diet of meat, raw milk, and a small amount of cod liver oil. They were the healthiest rearing healthy kittens year after year.
