The pet food recalls continue. The best "wholistic" suggestion to prevent
danger to your pet is — STOP feeding dry kibble dog food. In our
"wholistic" opinion, dry kibble dog food is the least nutritious form of
food to feed a carnivore. Furthermore, a majority of all pet food recalls is
with dry food. Canned food, freeze-dried food and raw food have a much lower
percentage of recalls. For the latest recalls, go to:
Would you invest $20/month ($240/year) to
save up to $10,000 in vet bills over the lifetime of your pet? After our
15-year old cat (Iris) recently died, we asked this question. We adopted
Iris at age 6 (2007) from a rescue organization. Her former guardian was
a veterinary technician, who made liberal use of all the vaccines they
had access to. We immediately transitioned Iris, and the other cat we
adopted at the same time, to a raw
food diet. We added BioPreparation-f2+ (the Core formula for
general nutrition and health maintenance) to their food. Iris was
obviously addicted to the dry kibble
and brand name grocery store canned food she was fed. Here are the initial signs
that something might not be right with Iris’
Over vaccination: previous guardian (vet tech.), vaccinated
Iris three times in three years with the feline leukemia vaccine.
The leukemia virus is suspected of causing lymphoma in cats. So, it
is not too much of a stretch to think that over-vaccinating with the
leukemia vaccine could pre-dispose some cats to lymphoma.
Finicky eater: Iris was very
picky about what flavor meats she would eat. Even more frustrating
was her tastes changed from day to day. Iris also did not like any
supplements mixed into her food. She would only tolerate a little
bit, otherwise she refused to eat her food.
Poor absorption of nutrients:
Iris’ coat felt dry and coarse when we first got her. Obviously, she
lacked the needed
Essential Fatty Acid (Omega oils) from commercial brand pet
food. While the other cat’s coat got shiny and glossy within 1-2
months of transitioning
to raw food with added BioPreparation-f2+, Iris’ coat took over one
year to improve.
At the end of 2010, Iris’ health crisis
began. Here are the rough costs for Iris’ healthcare for the rest of her
Iris stopped eating again. Ultrasound showed severe
pancreatitis, thickened intestines, liver inflammation and
fluid in the abdomen. Hospitalized with feeding tube inserted
and sent home. One week later, while still ill with
pancreatitis, Iris developed labored breathing. X-rays showed
fluid in the lungs. Vet diagnosed congestive heart failure. Iris
hospitalized again and put in oxygen cage. Despite treatment,
her condition worsened and she died a couple of hours later.
Without doing an intestinal biopsy, the
vets could not determine whether Iris had gastrointestinal lymphoma or
IBD. Apparently there is a continuum from IBD to lymphoma—IBD can
develop over time into lymphoma. The only way to confirm lymphoma is
with an intestinal biopsy, which is invasive. While the veterinary
internist would have liked to pursue more testing to get a diagnosis,
this was not possible financially and would not drastically change Iris’
treatment anyway. We were not going to pursue chemotherapy if she did
turn out to have lymphoma, preferring to treat it wholistically.
From 2007-2010 we gave Iris raw food and
(Core formula used for health maintenance). If we had started Iris
immediately on the advanced formula with the most antioxidants, BioPreparation-f3+ (Forte formula used
for advanced benefits) we would have spent an extra $20/month
($240/year) or $960 over this four year period.
Antioxidants are super nutrients for the
brain, that are very efficient at balancing the WHOLE body and
normalizing ALL the glands and organs. Here are the potential
Finicky eater: The advanced
formula, BioPreparation-f3+, is 5 times more efficient at balancing
the body over BioPreparation-f2+ but not 5 times the price. This
extra efficiency over four years might have allowed the inflammation
in Iris’ gut to subside, so that she would tolerate a wider variety
of food and be more tolerant of additional supplements.
Poor absorption of nutrients:
Instead of taking over one year to show improvements from all the
Essential Fatty Acids (Omega oils) in the bio-algae
concentrates’ whole superfood nutrition, her body’s absorption and
utilization of nutrients might have improved on BioPreparation-f3+
in shorter time like all our other rescued cats.
So the big questions is, if we invested
$960 over the first four years of Iris’ life (when she did not have
major symptoms) by giving the advanced formula, BioPreparation-f3+,
could we have reduced the total healthcare costs of $16,500+ towards the
end of her life? We believe the answer is, yes. Maybe we would have only
saved $10,000 of the total $16,500 but Iris may have lived longer and
had a better quality of life. Do we regret anything we did or did not do
for Iris? No. Each of our rescued pets come to us with their own unique
health challenges, holistic lessons to teach us and a ton of
unconditional love and many joyous/amusing moments to share. We cherish
each and every health lesson and all the joyous moments they gave us to enrich
our lives, our future pets’ lives and those of our clients’ pets. We
will start our next rescued pet
on the advanced bio-algae concentrates formula,
