Senior dog food is scam!

The simple truth is animal digest and by-products are as nutrient-rich as their whole-meat counterparts, however super-premium provender makers prey on people’s human sensibilities when marketing food. They win over the client that “gross” equals “unhealthy,” when in reality farm and ranch dogs for virtually thousands of years have subsisted on nothing but the necks, backs, viscera, and entrails of discarded bovine/swine/equine. It’s one factor when you will throw discarded horse organs in a bucket and have your hound eat it out of sight and out of mind. It’s another factor entirely when you are attempting to plug that bucket on a fairly new bag of kibble at your native Petsmart. Higher that the ingredients list “mechanically de-boned chicken meal” or “organic free-range bovid,”  right?

If you dig even deeper into the method, by-product meal is additionally the lot of environmentally sound alternative compared to whole meat-based kibble. Consider the numbers of animals slaughtered in the food in 2008: about three million sheep, thirty five million cows, 117 million pigs, 264 million turkeys, and nine billion chickens. Humans don’t eat a lot of of the organs and bones–the offal–of these animals even though several of those by-products are even as nutritious because the components we do eat. (Again, the “gross” issue inhibits our decision-making.) But by-products account for forty ninth of the weight of cows, a quarter mile of pigs, and thirty seventh of chickens. Animal by-products add up to fifty four billion pounds a year in the alone. Tiny amounts of animal waste are often composted, but quantities like this overwhelm any disposal system. None of the apparent disposal options–incineration, burial, and merchandising in landfills–is capable the task. All are environmentally venturous, and every one are wasteful of helpful nutrients.

I’m not about to tell you what you should or shouldn’t feed your dog. If his energy is sweet, and if he has good coat and stool quality, KEEP FEEDING HIM WHAT you are FEEDING HIM. In the meantime, is it an excessive amount of to raise to have a honest dialogue concerning pet food? If you have never fed your dog a particular product, if you have never personally witnessed his quality of life on a particular food, then NO, you’re NOT qualified to evaluate the standard of that food just by repetition and pasting the ingredients label and telling people to see out dogfoodanalysis.com. (On that same note, will we dispense with the intellectually lazy “I bet some individuals will live their whole lives on McDonalds” one-liners?)

And if anyone’s curious, I feed my current husky/border Purina ONE Adult Chicken and Rice, that I amend with one will of sardines on Mondays and one prod Thursdays. (I’ve noticed once fostering a few husky/malamute mixes that sardines build the wolf/spitz breeds’ coats much glow in the dark.) i attempted transitioning volute to canidae All Life Stages from pro set up Chicken & Rice in the initial couple weeks once I adopted him from the shelter, however his wet, bloody stools afraid Pine Tree State back to Purina ONE. (Why did not I simply place volute back on pro Plan? that is a story for another thread, however let’s simply say the new “Shredded Blend” sucks. For whatever reason, Purina likes to tinker with the formulas in its pro plan line, and it shows in animals’ skin and stool quality.)
