The bad news about supplementing your pets diet – Cats

“It is possible to have “too much of a good thing” when it comes to vitamins and minerals; the use of supplements not only is unnecessary but also can be potentially dangerous to your pet’s health. A key point to remember is that cats are neither small dogs nor people. Because of cats’ unique metabolism, what might be good for you might be detrimental to your cat. A high-quality cat food assures an adequate supply of vitamins and minerals in your cat’s diet; supplements should never be added without a veterinarian’s approval.”

?? How many supplements are in your cat’s food??  Check the label.  Synthetic supplements are usually present when the actual food ingredients are lacking in natural nutrition, mostly because they’ve been processed out in the heat, pressure & or drying process.

Picky eater or won’t eat? There’s a reason your dog knows more than you do!

A dog’s sense of smell is said to be a thousand times more sensitive than that of humans. In fact, a dog has more than 220 million olfactory receptors in its nose, while humans have only 5 million. Because of this keen sense of smell, dogs are able to locate everything from forensic cadaver material to disaster survivors. Taking facts into account – when your dog stops eating, or doesn’t like the food you’ve presented at meal time, why wouldn’t you trust that highly specialized instinct? Consider it a form of communication between you and your best pal. Rely on your dog to tell you what’s in it and whether or not it is suitable for him or her to eat. Trust him as much as he trusts you!
