Dogs have 42 teeth designed to cut meat and bone, just like wolves. They are genetically designed to survive and eat prey (not donuts or pizza).
How come bacteria in meat doesn’t bother wolves but it bothers our dogs? It doesn’t! Bacteria in meats doesn’t bother our wolves OR our dogs.
Where did kibble come from?
Some guy. Maybe the same guy that invented Cheetos. Some guy that wanted something easy and fast to feed dogs where he could make money and so he came up with kibble. He didn’t come up with it because it was good for the dog. It was easy for the human and its cheap to make.
Did you know that Purina and all those big food companies sponsor many of the Vet schools? And most of our own vets that we trust are literally taught in school that this F-grade food is good for our dogs (and are even taught to believe raw meat is bad and dangerous.) Don’t you agree that might be a little bias? Obviously if Purina is paying for the school programs they will teach the students that Purina is good!
A Vet that claims raw meat is dangerous and bad, is also saying Mother Nature knows nothing. Be sure you understand thisbackwards logic before you blindly accept it as the truth. Any vet that says RAW MEAT is dangerous is basically saying:
Mother Nature has made all animals self sufficient, except for our DOGS (who have 99% DNA of the wolf). Since our dogs live in our house and are “domesticated” their insides must have somehow changed (even though x-rays show they look identical to wolves) and if they eat prey they are designed to catch they will now die of bones and bacteria. Therefore, our dogs need kibble to live. With this logic, before kibble they must have all died…
But they didn’t– they actually lived longer back then. Less cancer rates. Less autoimmune diseases.
As you can see this anti-raw vet logic makes zero sense. Feeding cheap kibble, the cause of many ailments (including cancer, tumors etc) also makes zero sense.
People I swear I’m not a conspiracy theorist. I don’t even care about politics. I’m not making money on this. I have zero incentive. But once I delved deep into healing dogs (over a decade ago) I realized that it’s not about our dogs health at all. It’s about the bottom line. And it’s all smoke and mirrors.
What’s even scarier is that many of these nice vets totally believe what they’re saying. It’s like this insane domino effect of misinformation and lies being passed around.
How do I know it’s a lie? Because Mother Nature, a natural diet and herbs can CURE a animal skin problem for very little money where conventional medicine cannot for all the money in the world.
So back to my kibble rant:
If you want to feed your allergic pet kibble, stop here. I can’t help you.
For real. It’s impossible to have a thriving, super healthy, kibble fed bully with great skin and perfect health and minimal shedding. I’ve never seen it. They don’t thrive off kibble. They can live off of it, but not thrive.
The best diet is a raw diet. Or Dehydrated raw (ie. k9 Natural & Ziwi Peak are both great)
The next best is a cooked diet.
Basically no kibble. Real meat. Don’t they deserve at least that?
Why would a dog be healthy on a processed grained version of meat (chicken meal) instead of REAL ACTUAL MEAT? They don’t even have the enzymes to even process kibble correctly (which is why kibble fed dogs drastically improve when given enzymes).
Why are breeds like bulldogs so gassy? Hmmm. Your vet will tell you it’s a bulldog thing. Stupidest thing I’ve ever heard. Because from the beginning of time any medical doctor will tell you that excessive gas is the result of lactose intolerance, food intolerance, celiac disease etc. Excessive gas happens due to a lack of enzymes.
IN OTHER WORDS OUR DOGS LACK ENZYMES and must be fed a species appropriate diet.
I used to take Bob to a daycare with a pack of bullies. Once in a while when I’d pick him up he would have gas. I’d know right away they fed something I wouldn’t have approved of!
Dogs were designed to eat meat and bones. That’s why they have those teeth.
When we feed and treat them far away from what nature intended, the problems will arise.
This fake meat kibble (even grain free) is McDonalds at best. Of course there some better kibble like Orijin but that’s like sayingIn and Out is better than McDonalds. How about you give up giving your dog fast food?
Just because “Tank” doesn’t have to hunt for meat, doesn’t mean his digestive system is any different then it was 10000 years ago.
Regardless of their wrinkles and genetic manipulation, the animal insides remain the same as his ancestors.
Tank is designed to eat raw foods with tons of bacterias and he is also designed to handle and digest these foods with ease and thrive off the blood, vitamins, organs and bones. Raw is the diet that Mother Nature created for them to survive on. A raw diet acts as medicine for an animal to keep them healthy. That yellow acid (bile) will process all bacterias and even bones.
Don’t project human logic on dogs. Humans can’t handle raw meat (we have large intestine and different digestive tract) — but dogs are not human.
“MY VET SAYS RAW IS BAD.”
Your vet is…. eh… NOT SMART. Ask your vet how many salmonella cases he or she has personally treated. Then ask him how many kidney and liver failure patients he’s treated due to use of steroids and drugs that he prescribed them.
Then get a new vet with an open mind that wants to actually heal your dog and is willing to do whatever it takes.
Or just ignore your vet and don’t ask.
Keep it natural and you’ll never go to the vet anymore anyway.
Raw food for dogs is as good as it gets.
The best. The greatest.
HOWEVER if you cook a bone THEN it is dangerous. You cannot feed a dog cooked bones. It can break their teeth and have the ability to tear their insides.
DO NOT FEED COOKED BONES EVER.
Also, any dog that has a “protein allergy” is dealing with way bigger immune issues.
Food allergies come from overuse of certain proteins while the dog is unhealthy so they build an antibody to it. They pass that on genetically so some dogs are more sensitive then others.
When the immune system is weak the problems in the genetic line will magnify. All the issues they’re ancestors had will surface the weaker they get AKA bulldoggy issues (dry eye, corneal ulcers, hives, allergies, pemphigus, interdigital cysts etc)
Heal the immune system and you’re good.
If raw makes you nervous or you’re not ready for it or it just grosses you out, no problem.
Cooked food is excellent too.
What to feed … next post.
