Decades of deceptive pet food marketing have hidden a fundamental nutritional truth: Carbohydrates are not a natural food form for our carnivorous pets.
Dogs and cats, like their wild ancestors/counterparts, are carnivores, and require a suitably carnivorous diet. Nevertheless, and despite brazen marketing and product packaging that imply the opposite, carbohydrates are the current foundation for the vast majority of commercial pet foods –not meats and organs.
Consider the following facts:
+ The natural canine/feline diet contains virtually no starch. Most kibble pet foods are majority starch/carbohydrates. + The natural canine/feline diet is high (majority) protein and fat. Most pet food is low in both of these nutrients, and mostly starch/carbohydrates. + The natural canine/feline diet consists of meats, organs, bone, tendons, etc. – nearly all elements of the prey creature. Pet foods most often contain these ingredients at minority levels. + The natural canine/feline diet creates health, not the panorama of degenerative diseases that now plague pets.
For health, pets need a return to nature; a true alternative to the never-ending collection of profit-designed, homogeneous, carbohydrate-based pet foods. Such foods can spike insulin, disrupt metabolism, and compromise wellbeing.
