Happy pets don't eat people food




"Consumption of any unapproved food product may result in these problems, but some items are worse than others. Due to their high fat and/or protein contents, meats, meat by-products and most dairy products commonly result in GI problems and should be avoided. ((OK so we don't feed our cats or dogs meat?Huh)

Although pet foods contain some of the common meats people consume, those ingredients have been carefully and properly processed to meet pets' daily nutritional requirements.   (Has this person been in a coma for the last 7 months??)If your pet requires home-prepared meals, your veterinarian should be consulted for proper ingredients and amounts before such a diet is fed.

As persuasive as pets can be, we must be an advocate for their health by restricting their dietary intake to pet-approved consumables. Quality pet-approved foods and limited treats are all pets need to fulfill their daily nutritional requirements, and selections of these products can be made with the assistance of your pet's doctor." ( At this pont who really knows what is safe?)


I have been home cooking for just over 6 months and IMHO there has been a BIG difference in the health, appearance and vitality of my two fur kitties. My Tuxie cat no longer has burn type marks around his mouth and has lost all his excess weight and put on nice lean muscle. My Maxie cat has fur that shines so bright I almost need to put on sun glasses. They are brother and sister just turning 8 years but you would think that they are 8 MONTHS old the way they run around. Excuse me but I think I will just continue on as I have been.

Since when is acetaminophen one of those carefully processed ingredients necessary for health???

(I assume everyone has read Don Earl's latest post on the test results thread.)

*bangs head slowly against wall*

mal, would you consider getting hold of this paper and find out who wrote the article?  There does not appear to be a byline.

catbird:

I will send an e-mail to the paper and see if they come back with who wrote the article. The only saving grace was the article said "If your pet requires home-prepared meals, your veterinarian should be consulted for proper ingredients and amounts before such a diet is fed."

Although at this time and point IMO I believe that the people who have been slugging this out for the last 7 months probably have as much (or maybe more) knowledge as the average vet as far as feeding their furbabies goes.

Shame on you, Straybaby, subjecting your fur kids to REAL food.   They are so deprived.   Wink

Eventually they will understand,
Replied the glorious cat
For I will whisper into their hearts
That I am always with them
I just am....forever and ever and ever.

Why do they insist on propagating these myths?  What were the pets eating before the advent of commercial petfood?

Straybaby so cute your lil family. Dot looks so healthy with those pearly white teeth too. Keep on doing what it is your doing - they all look well taken care of.
