Why You Should Cook Food For Your Pets
Do you know what’s in that pet food you keep feeding your pet?
Sure, you can read the label in the back. But do you know what those things REALLY mean?
According to Born Free USA (click here for more details)
… about 50% of every food animal does not get used in human foods. Whatever remains of the carcass — heads, feet, bones, blood, intestines, lungs, spleens, livers, ligaments, fat trimmings, unborn babies, and other parts not generally consumed by humans
Yes, UNBORN FETUS of cows, pigs, lambs, etc.
Sure, logically speaking, an unborn baby cow is no different than a dead adult cow. Meat is meat, and who’s to say what is “ethical” meat and what is not?
The problem isn’t the by-product meat, but how the by-product meat needs to be treated with additives in order for FDA to label it “safe for pet consumption”.
I don’t know about you, but I sure don’t want my dog eating gasoline by products. And let’s be real about words – “additive” is a word the food industry came up with to replace the word “chemicals”.
To others, our pets may seem like domesticated animals that provide companionship. But all of us pet owners know, our pets are as much family members as are our human family members.
So if you love your pet, seriously consider cooking your own food for your pet. Not only will he/she be healthier, but you’ll also have a peace of mind knowing that your love and passion went into keeping your four-legged friend’s health and tummy safe.
