Veterinarians Begging: DO NOT Feed Your Dog These 3 Awful Food Products.

They say you are what you consume. It’s hard to argue with this wisdom because we all know that your health depends on what you eat. However, while most people understand what’s right or wrong and can make reasonable decisions, our furry friends have to rely on us.

A dog won’t ask you to call Gordon Ramsay or order a Michelin Dish. Moreover, any dog would at least try to eat anything you give it. This is their nature. That’s why it’s crucial to read this article till the end to limit or better eliminate these three health-killing dog treats

Dry Food or Kibble

Dry food, commonly known as kibble, has become the fast food equivalent for our furry companions. While it offers convenience and doesn’t require cooking, its ease of use comes with hidden drawbacks that can affect your dog’s health in the long run.

According to the FDA, processed pet food, which often contains material from diseased animals or those who have died other than by slaughter, undergoes high heat processing to kill harmful bacteria. This method, known as rendering, sanitizes otherwise putrid animal by-products and waste, resulting in the loss of vital nutrients during the process. To compensate for this loss, flavor enhancers and synthetic nutrients are added, introducing potential carcinogens and other harmful substances into your pet’s diet.

Moreover, the primary ingredients in kibble are often grains and high-starch carbohydrates like corn, wheat, rice, or potato, which can lead to metabolic imbalances and spikes in insulin, glucagon, and cortisol levels. Even grain-free options are not exempt, as they frequently contain legumes, peas, and lentils, further contributing to metabolic stress and the rising prevalence of pet obesity.

Additionally, kibble’s low moisture content can leave your dog in a perpetual state of dehydration, akin to subsisting solely on BBQ chips. Dehydration in dogs can manifest in various harmful symptoms, including loss of appetite, reduced energy levels, and dry skin and nose.

In conclusion, while kibble offers convenience and affordability, these benefits come at a significant cost to your dog’s health. It’s time to reconsider whether the convenience of kibble is worth compromising your pet’s well-being. After all, when it comes to your furry friend’s health, quality should always take precedence over convenience.

Wet Food

While Wet Food may initially appear to be a healthier option due to its higher cost and quick spoilage if left out, it’s essential to recognize that it’s not a one-size-fits-all solution and may harbor potential risks for your beloved pet.

One notable concern is the higher fat content often found in wet food compared to its dry counterpart. Excessive fat intake can pose a risk, particularly for dogs predisposed to pancreatitis or those with sensitivities to fatty foods.

Additionally, wet food may contribute to faster tartar buildup on your dog’s teeth, especially if proper dental care routines are not established. Unlike dry food, which can help prevent tartar accumulation, wet food lacks this beneficial effect, potentially leading to dental issues over time.

Furthermore, the packaging of wet food, such as cans, pouches, or plastic containers, may contain Bisphenol-A (BPA), an endocrine-disrupting chemical. Research indicates that BPA from canned dog food can enter the bloodstream of dogs and may have adverse effects on their health.

Bone and rawhide treats

The image of a dog happily gnawing on a bone is deeply ingrained in our collective consciousness. However, this perception overlooks the significant risks associated with offering bones and rawhide treats to our furry companions. While dogs have a natural inclination to chew, the potential dangers posed by these seemingly innocuous treats cannot be ignored.

Contrary to popular belief, bones are not a safe chewing option for dogs. They are rigid and prone to splintering, posing a serious risk of injury. The FDA has documented numerous cases of pet illnesses and fatalities linked to bone treats, underscoring the severity of the issue. Reports indicate that bones can fracture a dog’s teeth, leading to painful injuries that may require costly dental procedures to address.

Moreover, the sharp edges of fractured bones can lacerate the delicate tissues of a dog’s mouth, resulting in painful wounds and potential infections. Ingested bone fragments can pose even graver risks, causing choking, gastrointestinal blockages, or perforations of the stomach and intestines. These complications can lead to life-threatening conditions such as peritonitis, necessitating urgent medical intervention.

Similarly, rawhide treats, often touted as a natural chewing option, present their own set of hazards. These treats have a tendency to break down poorly in a dog’s digestive tract, potentially causing blockages or intestinal distress.
