What I eat and what they eat!
Did you know that the ingredients your pet eats "speak" to your pet's body at the cellular level?
The pet industry is the only industry I know of where it is frowned upon by medical professionals to feed whole fresh foods to pets, and only encouraged to feed packaged and processed foods...
...However, the University of Chicago and other international institutions found that "Humans and domestic dogs share an extensive parallel genomic evolution, particularly in genes associated with digestion and metabolism, neurological processes and diseases such as cancer. According to the researchers, these genes have likely evolved in parallel due to the close living environment shared by humans and dogs for many thousands of years, including scavenging for food together. (Lee, 2013; Wang et al.,2013)
"This is exciting news (but probably not surprising to those of us who feel deeply connected to our dogs!) because it means both species can benefit from much of the same new scientific information regarding the best way to eat for optimum cellular health." -Dr. W. Jean Dodds.
My whole theme for showing people 'What I eat/ what they eat', is that if I choose to eat whole fresh unprocessed 'real' foods that you can literally pin point and see every ingredient, is it that far fetched that I want to feed my pets a very well balanced diet using fresh whole foods as ingredients?
Something to think about.
