Our pets are fat. We know that. We even thought we knew why: Too many treats, free-feeding, or just too much food. To trim them up, we can calculate our pet’s daily caloric requirements and feed just that amount, in regular meals. But not all scientists are convinced too much food is the only reason for the growing waistline of our dogs and cats.
An obesity researcher, David Allison, at the University of Alabama Birmingham noticed weight gain in animals that couldn’t be explained by the usual culprits. In his article, Animals Are Becoming Obese Like Us, Says Study, author Stephen Messenger quotes the UAB researcher pointing the finger at chemical additives and other non-natural food sources:
“In the absence of any obvious reason why animals are getting fatter, some researchers are beginning to suspect the culprit may be a bit more surreptitious. Chemical additives and genetically modified food sources have been linked to childhood obesity -- and a similar process seems to be taking place within animals.”
This information further supports the unique approach Nature’s Logic takes to making natural pet foods. We have created the first and only full-line kibble, canned, and raw frozen pet food in the world with no chemically-synthesized ingredients. Nature’s Logic provides your pet with essential and complete nutrition using only 100% natural ingredients. We never add chemically-synthesized vitamins, minerals or other trace nutrients. This ensures that your pet is not exposed to the potential toxicities, and now possible weight gain, associated with these man-made substances.
Nature’s Logic is the pioneer in developing truly 100% natural pet foods derived from nature…not chemistry. For more information please visit http://www.natureslogic.com/.
