The Biggest Myths About Raw Food (And Why They’re Mostly Nonsense)
By Dr. Karen Becker, a proactive and integrative wellness veterinarian.
More: Healthypets.mercola.com


In part 2 of a 3-part video series on raw food diets for pets, Dr. Becker defines optimal nutrition for dogs and cats and lists her nutritional goals for her patients.

I typically break the list down into necessary and unnecessary foods.

Dogs and cats need quality protein, fats, and a small amount of vegetables and fruits. Vegetables and fruits provide antioxidants and fiber to animals that no longer hunt whole prey.

Natural sources of trace minerals, vitamins, and fatty acids must be added, since the soils in which foods are grown are depleted of many of the nutrients pets need. Also, food storage, whether it’s in a freezer or a pantry, decreases critical essential fatty acid levels in foods.

Pets need unadulterated, fresh, whole foods that are moisture dense. They don’t need grains, fillers, artificial preservatives, colors, additives, chemicals, byproducts, or processed foods. Although animals can eat some processed foods, they aren’t designed to consume a lifetime of dry or canned diets.

The Animal Keeper Poway is currently offering a variety of healthy raw food selections. Our Encinitas and Oceanside locations will be featuring raw food soon. Ask your location for details.

Happy Halloween?
Do you like to include your dog in everything you do? Us, too! But Halloween may need to be an exception.

Chocolate Toxicity
As we approach the holidays the safety of pets is always top of mind with us. Halloween usually involves lots of chocolate, so we wanted to share some information with you regarding how toxic it can be to your pets.
