Pets are very important members of the family especially to the children who see pets as friends whom they can teach everything from scratch and make them into a character they desire. For this reason and more, the health of your pets is just as important as yours because its family. Holistic pet care is a thorough way of caring for your pets. A holistic diagnosis of your pet brings to your knowledge even the tiniest details about your pet, even to the number of furs on its body. These thorough diagnoses may sometimes prompt for heavy changes to the current care plan for the pet or little.
Using yourself as a case study, have you recently made any significant lifestyle changes with regards to health? It could be paying more attention to your diet or choosing to take the pains or the pleasure of walking rather than being transported by vehicles just a few times; like long walks around the beaches, mountains for the sakes of the fresh air and mind clarification. Do you think these factors could be of benefit to your pets too?
A holistic pet care practitioner looks at a pet’s overall health, and uses traditional alternative therapies. We rely on lab tests and natural remedies for prevention and help to keep pets healthy and vibrant. We encourage changes in pets’ diets and lifestyles to help ward off illnesses like skin issues, obesity, arthritis, diabetes, and sometimes even cancer.
A permanent lifestyle adjustment needs to be implemented so your pet can forever thrive. Here are some differences between conventional pet foods and holistic pet foods.
Conventional foods contain: over-processed, dried up dough that is cooked under extreme pressure and high temperatures. This process creates continuous chemical and physical alterations to the ingredient mixture.
Typical variations include:
• Starch gelatinization
• Inactivation of nutritionally active factors
• Protein denaturation
• Vitamin loss
Holistic food contains:
Raw meat! That means the flesh, the tissue, the muscle, the fat, the organs of an animal. Ideally, the diet should be fresh but as a viable alternative fresh, dehydrated, animal meat can serve as compensation. Fruits and vegetables are not ideal for your carnivores to ingest.
Raw meat is how nature designed the food chain to operate for carnivores. Our dogs and cats are instinctually carnivores.
Please note: if your pet is currently eating kibble or any other processed store bought food, certain guidelines need to be followed in order to transition your pet into the raw, food, thriving lifestyle.
