Did you know that historically a dog’s or cat’s diet was always raw?

It wasn’t until the depression of the late 1920’s that the traditional meat, bones, offal and table scrap diet fed to dogs and cats for centuries was abandoned when people had no choice but to eat these foods themselves, and instead began to feed dogs with stock and grain-based feed, to which they added extra protein and calcium in the form of what was basically fertilizer meat meal, blood and bone. This was the beginning of the enormous pet-food industry that we know today with grain producers, realizing the profits to be made from their waste produce, began what has become the insidious (and damaging to pet health) modern pet food industry of today.

This new pet food was sold as “scientifically formulated” and “good for your pet”, yet the food was mainly cereal based, cooked at very high temperatures and finished with a cocktail of colorants, preservatives and dubious ‘vitamins’ in an attempt to replace the nutrients lost from the high temperatures used in the processing.

At this point, the pet food manufacturers re-wrote the scientific classification for dogs and cats, and started to change public perception by referring to them as omnivores, despite their carnassial teeth and lack of large flat molars for grinding up plant matter. The manufacturers went further; they started sponsoring the nutrition lectures in vet school, teaching student vets that dogs and cats were omnivores. They gave lucrative sales margins to vets who carried their food, and so the corruption of our veterinary professionals began….

Being descendants from wolves and wild cats, feeding a dog or cat a steady diet of anything that is cooked, canned, dried or ground is simply unnatural for a dog, and over time, doing so puts a strain on the dog’s system. Such a chronic strain may often result in any number of the different kinds of health problems from which far too many carnivores are suffering today; diseases that are now being referred to as “genetic”.

Yet it was convenient, no more pondering of what to feed that day, everyone loved the idea of simply opening a bag or can. The fast-food industry for dogs and cats was born, and with it began the diet related health crisis of pets that then swept our western world.  Dogs and cats started to develop so many diet related illnesses that the veterinary industry boomed, yet still we carried on feeding the same food that was causing the problems in the first place.

This class is intended to give you an overview to a more natural way of caring for your dog or cat to provide better health and longevity. 

We will cover the current choices in dog and cat foods, along with ways to feed on a budget as well as for those who really like to “dig in” to the details.  We will spend some time preparing a typical raw food bowl in our own kitchen for our carnivores.  You will see how simple and easy it can be, even for the busy working folks with little time to spare.  We will provide local resources for obtaining quality raw food for your carnivore pet.

We hope you enjoy the class!
