Is your Pet Surviving OR Thriving?

By Kelly

Your dog’s food may create health problems or even worse create severe auto-immune reactions in your pets. Dogs and Cats are natural carnivores so it’s important that you avoid grains, corn, potatoes, meat by-products and other cheap fillers. Many dog food manufactures use these type of ingredients and fillers simply to increase their profits and shelf life. These are not only bad for your dog’s health but often cause severe reactions such as chronic ear infections, scratching and itching, paw chewing, digestive problems and weight issues.
Here is a handy list DO’s & DON’T’s you need to look for in your pet food. If you see ingredients on the “Don’t” list you should look for an alternative brand. Even more confusing, popular Prescription brands, are overpriced and contain these controversial ingredients. There are many healthy and affordable food alternatives for your pet.
