Nutrition Edition (Part 3 In Series)
I often sense that animals are craving what is referred to as “genetically appropriate” or “species specific food”. For example, most cats and dogs that I consult on are seeking protein rich diets.
Animals with diets that rely heavily on dry kibble tend to express a “craving” for meat protein. Animals expressing this desire for meat are often also experiencing health and/or emotional issues, sometimes even leading to behavioral problems. These issues can range anywhere from more minor matters to serious problems.
The above information is not intended to take the place of doing your own research as well as consulting with a veterinarian to find the right fit for your animal. I came to the decision to feed my animals a raw diet through extensive research, veterinarian consults, and good old fashion trial and error. The benefits of a healthy pet diet are not only a happier healthier pet, but you may prolong the life of your cherished family member.
