Commercial Pet Food
The pet nutrition industry is a multi-billion dollar industry full of hype and false claims. Consumers are being duped into believing that they are feeding their pets healthy foods, when in actuality they are feeding nothing more than inferior meat meals, cheap grains, fillers, by-products, pesticides, preservatives and toxins.
Do you know people that have pets with skin problems, allergies, stomach problems, behavioral problems, etc. etc, that spend hundreds of dollars at the vet on antibiotics, steroids, tranquilizers, and other medication? Antibiotics, steroids, and many other medications take a serious toll on the internal organs and immune systems of our pets. It becomes a never-ending circle of medication and sickness.
The following practices are used by many pet food manufacturers:
POOR PROTEIN SOURCES: Soybean Meal, Wheat, Corn Glutens, Corn Meal, Whole Corn, Crushed Corn and Ground Corn are commonly used for their protein content in many pet foods. These ingredients are generally poor sources of protein vs. meat.
CHEMICAL PRESERVATIVES: BHA, BHT and ethoxyquin are found in many pet foods. Scientific studies have proven that these chemicals can be harmful. In fact, they have been shown to promote liver disease and other medical problems.
FOOD COLORING: Food colorings are still commonly used in pet foods today despite the fact that they are not necessary and some have been linked to medicalproblems.
BY-PRODUCTS: By-products can vary ... they can consist of the internal parts of animals such as necks, heads, undeveloped eggs, feet, intestines,lungs, spleen and liver.To find out more about commercial pet foods and what you can do to give your pets a healthier, happier, longer life, please visit us at www.mypethaven.com and click on the link that says Click Here to find out what's really in your pets food.
