Pet Food Recalls

The pet food recalls continue. The FDA has expanded its investigation of the elevated levels of Vitamin D in dry dog foods, which can be toxic and cause serious health problems. Currently, there are eight brands and twelve different diets that have been recalled. The FDA found an alarming 70 times the intended amount of vitamin D. To learn more about this recall, please read Life's Abundance blog post. None of our Life's Abundance pet food is affected by this recall.

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:

Dog Food Recalls or FDA website

Clean Pet's Teeth Holistically

February is National Pet Dental Health Month. We all know we should clean our pet's teeth just like we clean our own,dog's teeth with daily brushing and at least annual dental checkups. If you notice "doggy breath" in your dog, this is a sign your dog is suffering from periodontal disease—it is not normal for healthy dogs to have bad breath, despite the many jokes about this. Please see a vet for proper treatment. How did Nature design animals in the wild to get their teeth cleaned? Nature's method is by gnawing on raw meaty bones, getting algae in their diet and other natural means.

When wild animals kill prey, they not only eat the organs and flesh of their kill but also gnaw on the raw meaty tiger eating killbones. The scraping of their teeth against the bones of their prey is the #1 way wild animals get their teeth cleaned. Holistic vets state that feeding whole raw bones to clean our pet's teeth will greatly reduce the incidence of gum disease and the need for professional teeth cleaning. Make sure you are giving them raw and not cooked bones, which can splinter. Also make sure you feed the appropriate size bone to your specific dog breed. Giving too small a bone to a big dog can lead to choking, when small bone pieces break off. Despite what the advertising says, according to some holistic vets, dry kibble is not effective in cleaning our pets' teeth any more than mint-flavored cookies or pretzels clean our teeth. Discover on our Pet Food page, why dry kibble is the least nutritious form of food to feed a carnivore.

A second way Nature meant for wild animals to keep their teeth clean is by providing algae in the soil, water and on algae pondplants. When wild animals get this algae it helps to maintain the proper pH level in their mouth cavity, which works as a natural protective barrier that inhibits the development and growth of E.coli, Streptococcus and other harmful bacteria. Dry kibble, with its high carbohydrate and sugar content, make our pet's mouth more acidic, thereby encouraging more bacteria to grow and may even promote eating away the enamel that protect our pet's teeth. Algae naturally contain over 4,000 live enzymes, which may inhibit bacteria growth on animals' teeth. Bio-algae concentrates (BAC) are alkaline food, which mean they counter acidic foods and help raise the pH level towards the alkaline side of the scale. This, in turn, promotes increased bone mass (since the body doesn't have to sacrifice calcium from the bones to balances its pH), and vastly improved metabolic functions. This is especially good news for senior pets. Consuming more alkaline foods has been strongly linked with improved immune system, mental function, kidney function, and higher levels of energy, among other important benefits in both humans and animals. Here is a testimonial to prove this works.

One of our pet parents routinely opened up the BioPreparation capsules and mixed the microalgae powder BioPreparationin their dog's food. They went through a busy period in their life, so they just added the whole capsule into their dog's wet food mix. Then they noticed their dog's breath starting to smell bad and plaque was forming on his teeth. They immediately went back to opening up the BioPreparation capsules and mixing the microalgae in their dog's food and within about two weeks all these symptoms went away.

So, if you want to holistically clean your pet's teeth and avoid expensive veterinary periodontal treatment, try what Nature does to clean animals' teeth: feed raw meaty bones and supply algae in your pet's diet. After all, animals naturally get algae in the wild, while our domesticated pets fed cooked, processed food and tap water get no algae in their diet.
