    Is Your Pet Getting Enough Nutrients?
    Copyright 2004, A. M. Wilmot

    In recent years, we as a nation have become more preoccupied
    with nutrition issues than ever before, so you would think that 
    we should naturally have equal concern for our dogs and cats ... 
    especially since we generally consider them to be a part of the 
    We should want the ingredients in our pet food to be human grade 
    or at least nearly so.
    If byproducts are shunned in our own food, why are they be 
    allowed in our animals' food? Do we want them to live to their 
    maximum lifespan?
    Of course we do. Nobody enjoys seeing their beloved pet, whom 
    they have truly formed a bond with, get sick and slowly die.
    We are now seeing that our dogs and cats in fact need daily
    supplements the same way that people do, in order to take care 
    of their bodies for the inevitable stresses of the aging process.
    In the span of an animal's life, an early start at good health 
    ensures less vulnerability to certain degenerative diseases, 
    joints that are less likely to creak with pain and a healthier 
    Holistic veterinarian Dr. Jane Bicks claims that when studying 
    dog food, one should be on the lookout for dyes, and other 
    chemicals as much as possible. 
    For example, BHA, which is one of the primary synthetic
    antioxidant preservatives used to prevent food discoloration,  
    has been shown to cause cancer in laboratory rats at some doses. 
    In lesser doses, the preservative does not show  a dangerous 
    effect but who knows what BHA can do to their bodies in small 
    doses over a long time span.
    Dr. Jane states that the maximum life span of dogs is estimated 
    to be between 25 to 30 years, but the average dog often lives 
    no longer than 13 to 14 years.
    And she says that this difference is caused mostly by inadequate 
    She also states that protein is an overlooked but vitally
    importartant part of a dog or cat's natural development.
    Harder working or more energetic dogs and cats need more
    protein as well as fat in their diets to support their stamina. 
    A dog food that is complete and balanced and includes at least 
    26 percent protein and 1650 kilocalories of metabolizable energy 
    per pound. During the seasons when dogs are not working, feed 
    them less of the caloric-dense dog food.
