The Case for Raw Pet Food

Excerpted from Healthy Pets with Dr. Karen Becker via mercola.com:

If Your Vet Suddenly Warns You Away from Raw Pet Food, Here’s Why

Story at-a-glance:

  • Despite public pressure against it, the AVMA (American Veterinary Medical Association) recently passed a resolution designed to discourage the feeding of raw diets to dogs and cats.
  • The reasons given for the anti-raw resolution are so flawed they invite widespread suspicion about the real motives behind the AVMA’s stance.
  • The AVMA fails to explain how handling raw food intended for pets is more dangerous than handling raw food intended for humans. It also fails to explain how commercial raw pet food, which is rarely if ever recalled for contaminants, is less safe than processed pet food, which is the subject of routine, large-scale recalls.
  • To date, there have been ZERO reported cases of human illness caused by feeding raw diets to pets.
  • Dr. Becker remains a staunch advocate of raw food diets for healthy dogs and cats and dismisses the AVMA anti-raw resolution as without foundation.

This Week’s Adoptable Pet

The lucky family that adopts this pet featured here on our blog will receive a coupon from HAWS good for a “congratulations” gift bag from End of the Leash!

To learn more about how to adopt through HAWS, please visit their adoption page.  You may also give them a call at 262.542.8851.

Lucky from HAWS is featured here today:

I’m Lucky and I KNOW I am Lucky to be here at HAWS because they understand just what kind of home I need. I am a 7 year old Pit Bull Terrier/American Bulldog mix that needs someone that is BIG like me. You see, I am strong and just a little goofy so I tend to get a little too wiggly and waggly for my own good…I would just love some obedience training because my new owner should learn how to control my doggie enthusiasm.

I am not too fond of other dogs (it’s probably that goofy stuff) but I really respect cats; they kind of scare me. Older kids are OK because of my size but I would knock the younger ones right over. So, if you want a big silly guy to have fun with, then stop on over to HAWS and meet me…you will soon see that I am the best!!

ALSO…I was on TMJ4’s The Morning Blend yesterday!  Click here to see me :)
