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:

Based on our wholistic research we feel one
of the reasons is because of the tricks that large, commercial pet food
manufacturers use to get your carnivorous pet to eat a species
inappropriate (carbohydrate) diet: spraying "digests" on dry kibble.
Biologists tell us a cat (obligate carnivore) needs 70-90% meat + fat
a dog needs 60-80% to thrive and be healthy. Domestic cats are descended
from the African wild cat, whose natural diet included rodents, birds,
eggs, reptiles and insects. They got their moisture from their food and
not drinking water, as they lived in the desert. Their prey contains
65–75% water. Cats do not have a strong thirst drive compared to other
mammals so they will not drink water until they are already dehydrated.
The African wild cat was domesticated by the Egyptians 4,000 years ago
to protect their granaries from rodents. The cat was ideally suited to
this task, since it did not eat grains. Yet today,
most people feed their cats dry kibble that contains more grains than
meat and only averages 10% water. Could this be why so many cats get
Chronic Renal Failure (CRF)
or Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)? Most holistic veterinarians think so.

What % meat protein does your dry kibble food have? DO NOT be fooled by the pet manufacturer's label that can include vegetable (wheat, corn, soy, etc.) protein in their Total Protein Content %. Ask them how much protein content is derived from MEAT.
Does you pet have digestive issues and/or unexplained fatty tumors (lipomas)? Almost all wheat, corn and soy ingredients in pet food are GMO food. GMO research suggests in addition to stomach lesions GMO food may cause pre-cancerous cell growth in the digestive tract, smaller growth of brains, liver and testicles, partial atrophy of the liver and damage to the immune system.

If you eat fast foods, at restaurants and pre-packaged and/or processed foods, then read our March, 2010, e-newsletter article on how GMO foods might affect humans:
So why does a cat eat cantaloupe and grain-based food not fit for a carnivore? Because pet food manufacturers spray substances called “digests” (amino acids) onto dry kibble to trick your carnivorous pet into thinking it is eating tasty, wholesome food fit for a carnivore.

Other sprayed substances may include meat fats, sometimes left-over rancid fats from restaurants. For other sneaky pet food manufacturer tricks, download our report by selecting the green button below:
