Does your healthy lifestyle spill over to your animals?
Got to wondering about how most people feel or think about nutrition of their animal family. On my journey to be better educated on all things healthy it occured to me that I needed to have an overall approach. I no longer farm livestock, so this is on a pets only basis. Pets are huge business and people love their pets. Vets I believe are are lot like Drs and are not really educated on nutrition. (Doc Jones your the exception)
A few years ago we took our rescue cat to the vet with breathing difficulties. Many tests and over $1000 later, "your cat has asthma, here give her these steroids for the rest of her life!" Not only would my cat hate me for trying to jam a pill down her neck every day, I was not comfortable with the result. So with more research we've found that a grain free diet has helped her tremendously. The vet in question did not even touch on the subject. So now we buy grain free kibble and wet cat food, fresh meat and bones. Our cat is fussy, tried her on fresh meat, liver etc she will only eat gf cat food from a tin, much to my disappointment. I believe over processed pet food is a real problem. We need to look after our extended families as much as we do ourselves. We changed vets. Here she is being really cute!
