Food Preparation for Livestock

Pet owners are concerned about the health of their dogs. And the item we are most concerned about is food. Dog food recalls seem to be happening more often and this is the reason pet owners are concerned for pet food preparation.

Can you remember a time when dogs were fed table food scraps and they were left to wander about the farm or the community and folks or neighbors might toss some food in their direction? None of these foods had hurt these dogs.

If your pet passed a butcher shop, a bone or a piece of meat may have given to him, if he passed a bakery, perhaps he was given an egg, and as he passed a farmer milking his dairy cow he probably received a squirt of milk.

When I raised German shepherd dogs a trip to the grocery store allowed me to purchase leftover bones and meat cuttings from the meat counter to be used for dog food. If this opportunity is open to you, great!

 Currently, in the city where I reside grocery sores are not permitted to sell these bones and scraps.

Then commercial pet foods came along and turned the heads of pet owners with promises of their prized healthy dog food recipe, excellent nutrients, and convenience for pet owners at a reasonable price.

Regardless of where you got your meat for the high protein content, or the dry or canned commercial dog foods, I do not recall ever hearing about a dog getting sick as much as we do today. And today there are many pet foods recalls which cause alarm for pet owners because of dog illnesses. And information about pet food preparation is now available for the general public.

Do you remember when television dinners and fast foods were first introduced for people to eat? These served as occasional meals and were particularly handy when traveling or there truly was no time for making a home cooked meal.

Have you begun to notice the fact that now in both situations, we are hearing of animals and people getting sick from commercially produced foods? What is the problem?

One sure ingredient causing problems is sugar. Too much sugar in both animal and people food. Now we hear much about overweight, immune deficiency diseases, heart and circulation diseases, and diabetes on the increase. Dogs and people are having health problems which seemingly are related to the ingredients in our food. Pet food preparation pet owners is becoming a popular trend.

Where are the wholesome foods for us and our pets? Why are there so many preservatives, chemicals, dyes, and names of ingredients that we cannot pronounce being put into food?

Pet owners are questioning ingredients in pet foods, both dry and canned, because their pets are getting sick. If commercially prepared pet food is so good why have there been so many dog food recalls and cat food recalls by the pet food industry?

You have read or heard of human error at the factory, or the wrong additive being added to the food or too high a dose of certain vitamins, wrong ingredientsFind Article, and contaminated ingredients from foreign countries.
