Feeding holistic foods instead of conventional dog food to your pets can actually make a lot of difference. Although some people would scoff at the idea but if you think of the long term benefit,
it practically outweighs everything. Not only will your dog live longer but in the long run, this will ensure that they lead an active and productive life. The holistic meal preparation also has
some other benefits that will help them build up strong immune system to fight off diseases.
Before we get any further, let us understand the term “holistic”. What it actually means is referring to the meal preparation which consists of careful blend of ingredients prepared only using natural methods. Sometimes this can involve using the latest food processing technology but the main concern on whether it is traditional or high-tech is to preserve the nutritional content especially during the cooking and packaging process. In all, the nutritional values must remain preserved at all cost above anything else. By having the natural holistic foods as their daily meal, this will ensure that your dogs are always getting the best. The recipe can be a combination of a variety of meals such as chicken meat, fish meals, bones, vegetable and essential oils, all in the right proportion.
Natural holistic dog food is also important because the food is produced using only careful selection of ingredients and ensuring the wholesomeness and freshness of the feed remains the top priority. Natural foods avoid addition of substances that may be detrimental to your dog’s health because artificial ingredient such as colorant, preservatives, stabilizers, flavors and some other additive chemicals can cause undesirable side effects. If you decide to be creative, you can also come up with your own holistic preparation and since you should know what is best for your pets, you can put the best of everything into one. And trust me, knowing that your dogs are getting the right foods for their needs will put your mind at ease. With the recent pet food recall incident and the frequent food poisoning cases, consumers are now wary about what they are getting for their pet dogs.
If you intend to create your holistic food, you can always come up with your own ingredients made from the best selection of recipes. You can always decide the ingredients based on your own research and reading materials from the library or even the internet. Friends who are expert in this field will also be able to guide you on your selection. Vets can also come up with their own recommendations and basically it all really depends on what you want. By making your own health holistic foods, it also means you can avoid purchasing supplements. The main thing is that you can always select the ingredients which you think will be able to cater for their specific nutritional needs. Lastly, you can also consider adding your own home remedies which can be mixed together with the food preparation especially when your dogs are ill.
