The recent pet food recall offers a glimpse of what is wrong with entrusting your pet's nutrition (or your own) to corporations and the government regulatory agencies.
Largest Recall Of Pet Foods In History
Why was "gluten" one of the suspected ingredients in the recent recall of pet food? Answer, there is a constant search by manufacturers to produce lower cost food that still meets government protein and nutrient requirements. Gluten is a cheap method to do that. But gluten is not the only cheap and threatening additive approved by the government and added by manufacturers.
Scary Ingredients Approved By The Government
Wet pet foods are made from the most distressed meat, animals with pus bags and tumors. Even though these animals are approved by the USDA for human consumption, some, but not all, manufacturers are reluctant to use them for humans. Even the meats that are not visibly distressed are all being given growth and fattening hormones, antibiotics, and highly questionable feed. Additionally, among many scary ingredients, pet foods may legally contain euthanized cats and dogs!
Dry foods are just as bad, but in different ways. Feral cats and dogs would have to be starving before they would eat the ingredients found in dry pet foods. Dry foods are much like breakfast cereals. They are cooked in a mash and then extruded through nozzles at high heat and pressure. This process inactivates any probiotics and makes much of the rest indigestible. If the ingredients originally had any nutritional value, the very process is sufficient to destroy it. About the best thing you can say about dry pet food is that it's "convenient"!
Catastrophic Free-Fall In Pet Health
There is an old saying "You can pay me now, or pay me later." And that's exactly the result of many generations of domestic cats and dogs being fed commercial pet foods. Where humans typically only have one generation of offspring, animals raised for breeding can easily have 5 or more. Each generation inherits the weaknesses of the previous generations. Today, millions of kittens and puppies are predisposed to an unhealthy life.
Parallels can be drawn between commercial pet foods and human fast foods. Human and animal diseases are at an all time high. GI disorders are varied and common. Both are on multiple medications.
What are the common denominators? Fast, nutrition-less foods, chemicalized tap water, multiple nutrient deficiencies, and lack of exercise.
According to The Royal Society of Medicine Great Britain, "Fully 90% of all chronic disease is caused by an unhealthy intestinal system".
GI disorders among cats and dogs are epidemic. Conventional veterinary treatment with Flagyl, Metranidazole, Immodium, and other drugs is toxic, potentially causing further stress to already weakened animals. While these drugs may be helpful initially, without remedial supplemental treatment, their net effect is negative.
Without healthy foods, even healthy animals will decline genetically within several litters.

Mild If your dog has normal diarrhea and vomiting, eats a healthy diet, and is in good condition, then you need Pet Flora Pet Flora is designed for a dog's highly acidic intestinal tracts. Pet Flora reestablishes stability in otherwise healthy dogs over night, sometimes faster. Pet Flora is not a cure all, but it is "The Missing Link" to restoring and maintaining optimum GI health. It is an essential component to resolve any illness. For bigger dogs, we recommend the bottle of 100 so you can have Pet Flora on hand when you need it.
