Many commercial pet food companies label their products misleadingly. Processed wood chips are called “powdered cellulose,” and a ground-up array of disease-ridden tissue and unwanted animal parts — often containing high levels of hormones, antibiotics, and pesticides — are labeled as “meat and bone meal.” The percentages of protein, fat, and carbohydrates listed on the labels provide little or no useful information on whether or not the ingredients are bioavailable — that is, can our pets digest and use them in their bodies…
And it gets worse. Many commercial pet food companies use meat by-products (part of animals not commonly eaten by our pets even in the wild), rendered meat (commonly found in dry foods as a “meal” or “meat and bone meal” that’s made from animals condemned for human consumption), and preservatives and additives such as butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA), butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT), propyl gallate, and ethoxyquin. Ethoxyquin is one example of a preservative that is banned from human food due to its known cancer-causing properties. Contaminants in pet food is far too common as well. These often include pesticide residues, antibiotics, molds, and drugs from downer animals. And many pet foods companies include a high percentage of grains in their food (especially corn, wheat, and soy) which is not meant for carnivores like dogs.
As pet lovers, we owe it to our dogs (and all pets) to give them best nutrition possible. Easy Home Made has created a great homemade dog food recipe. This is a meal that she prepares for her own pooch, Poppy. This recipe calls for human-quality meat, eggs, vegetables, and even herbs. Best of all, Poppy approves! When shopping for homemade ingredients, source products that are organic, non-GMO, and grass-fed for ultimate nutrition.
