Read this before feeding another bite of commercial pet food to your furry best friends
Knowing this stuff is way better than remaining unaware, because it could cost your dog their health and ultimately their life.
My friend Andy Lewis has put together critical information that every dog (and cat) owner needs to know. He reveals the statistics about canine death rates & then shows you how they link to the pet food your dog (or cat) may be eating. It’s important. Brands like Innovetpet have some good quality pet foods for your canine.
Andrew’s commercial pet food research findings:
The Three Leading Causes of Death in Dogs are:
- Heart Disease
- Kidney Disease
This is how they are linked to your dog’s diet…
The chemicals & preservatives used in many commercial dog foods are known to cause these cancers:
- Kidney cancer
- Bladder cancer
- Skin cancer
- Stomach cancer
- Spleen cancer
The same cancer-causing chemicals & preservatives have been banned from use in human foods because of these known problems… but continue to be used in Fido’s food.
That’s tragic, with horrifying consequences for our pets.
2. Heart Disease
The high proportions of cheap unhealthy fats found in many brands of commercial pet food cause arteriosclerosis and arterial blockages resulting in death by heart attack.
But also, the lack of the more expensive omega-3 essential fatty acids (EFA) can cause canine (and feline) heart failure because without omega-3, ventricular arrhythmias occur.
When that happens it can result in sudden death when the heart stops working.
3. Kidney Disease
An 11-year study of acute renal failure in dogs concluded that 45% of cases are caused by toxins and 35% by infectious diseases.
In the USA, April – May 2007, over 2200 dogs died in a 3-week period from poisonous toxins found in the commercial dog foods they ate.
And nutritionally inadequate diets also lead to defective adrenal glands unable to manufacture adequate cortisol, a hormone vital for health and resistance to infectious disease (Dr. Alfred Plechner DMV).
If you choose to feed commercial pet food, then consider very carefully the possible and very likely consequences.
Andy never knew any of this, and as a result, his dog Noble died. It broke his heart, and started his journey to find answers.
Many pet owners also ignored the warnings back in 2006 and were devastated by the Dog Food Scandal of 2007 (yes, Andy’s been working on this for a long time.)
But the good news is, the many thousands that listened and took his advice followed his guidelines and have healthy dogs.
You can too. Your dog deserves to be healthy and to eat good food that helps them be strong and happy, and so do you.
