Debunking 3 Myths About Dog Nutrition in West Palm Beach, Jupiter, FL, Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton, Coral Springs, Pompano Beach, and Surrounding Areas
Dogs and cats have shared our homes and our hearts for over 20,000 years. Yet, many pet owners still only know very little about their furry friends. For example, many still deprive their pups and cats of natural herbs, regardless of their holistic benefits–and the list goes on!
By debunking these common myths about dogs, we hope to equip you with the knowledge needed to best care for your pup.
MYTH #1: Cats are not carnivores
Cats are obligate carnivores, that depend upon meat, poultry and fish for survival. Their bodies cannot digest plants properly. Plants do not provide enough nutrients for obligate carnivores. All cats, from small house cats to huge tigers, are obligate carnivores. However some herbal foods are known to be compatible if used in moderation. Remember our ancient carnivores and obligate carnivores drank from puddles infused with natural herbs in order to naturally achieve proper nutrition.
MYTH #2: You can never feed your pup too much protein.
Believe it or not, there is no such a thing as ‘too much protein’ for your dog! It’s not the amount protein it is type of protein. As long as you are providing your pets with a rotational, species appropriate and balanced diet consisting of many nutrients, Omega 3 fats, minerals, and enzymes along with the proper amount and type of protein foods in their diet. Protein should not be harmful to your dog’s health.
MYTH #3: Dogs and cats can digest grain.
Grain is not an appropriate food item for our furry carnivorous friends. In the wild these animals were not going to the corn and wheat fields to eat. It is important to note that too much grain can be harmful to your dog or cat’s health.
