The Problem of Processed Food
by: Grant Carroll
When you’re walking down the supermarket aisle looking for a good dog or cat food, you have no choice but to rely on what advertisement looks best or what food is cheapest. Unfortunately, neither of these tactics will get your pet the proper nutrition because pets digestive systems were never meant to eat processed foods in the first place. In fact, if owners knew exactly what went into making dog and cat chow, they’d never let their pets touch the stuff again. For example, the fat in food is often left over cooking grease that’s been sitting in 50 gallon drums in the sun. Vets say the processed food can lead to serious health problems, such as skin and digestive conditions.
Processed food has other issues with its quality as well. The ideal food for any dog or cat is raw meat. This is what their ancestors and wild cousins eat, and it’s what their intestinal tract is made to eat. Pet food companies have to cook their meat before turning it into chow. They must also add preservatives to prolong the shelf life of the product. Imagine how healthy you would be if all you ever ate was processed, preserved food in pellet form.
