Do You Know What is in Your Pet’s Food?

Many of us have become concerned over the last several years about what we are putting into our bodies.  We have become a nation of label readers, making sure that only the best is being consumed by us and our loved ones.

Do we do the same for our pets?  When was the last time you took a long hard look at what food and treats you are feeding your furry family members?

Pet lovers all over the country have begun to really pay close attention to what they are feeding their pets now.  Many of the most popular brands of food and treats contain some terrible things.  Along with the most common ingredients that most pet owners are familiar with, wheat and soy, you will also find preservatives such as BHA and BHT.  While these have gone through the review process required by the US Food and Drug Administration, the same chemical properties which make BHA and BHT excellent preservatives may also be implicated in health effects.  Propyl Gallate is another preservative found in your pet’s food and treats.  According to the International Journal of Toxicology, “animal toxicity studies indicate that Propyl Gallate was slightly toxic when ingested”.  Even “slightly toxic” is too toxic for my pets.

You could also find “bone meal” in the food and treats. The question here is what kind of bone?  If your pet happens to be allergic to beef and this is bone meal from a cow, you won’t know it until your pet has a reaction. 

Artificial flavors and colors are another popular ingredient.  When was the last time your pet turned his or her nose up at something because it was the wrong color? 
There are many, many more unnatural ingredients listed on the different foods and treats that we have been feeding our pets. Some of these products have been around for many years.

At Life’s Abundance we are determined to keep pets healthy while giving them delicious food and treats.  Click on any one of our Dog Treats then click on “ingredients”.  You will find only natural ingredients with no artificial additives or preservatives.  You will find the same with our Cat Treats.

Looking for a better food for your pets?  Compare our Dog Food and Cat Food to many of the other major brands and see how much better it is for your pet.

Keeping our pets healthy is very important to us pet parents.  It’s very important to Life’s Abundance as well.
