National Holistic Pet Day Raises Awareness of Pet’s Diet, Lifestyle, & Environment


This year, National Holistic Pet Day falls on August 30th and the holiday provides a good opportunity to think about your pet’s daily lifestyle. The definition of holistic reads, “Relating to or concerned with wholes or with complete systems rather than with the analysis of, treatment of, or dissection into parts.”¹ This special day has an interesting background and helps pet parents understand what holistic truly means and how whole food nutrition is key to your Holistic Pet.

Is Your Dog or Cat’s Raw Pet Food Really Raw?

With increased desire to feed the most biologically-appropriate diet, many pet parents are selecting raw foods. Feeding a properly-formulated raw diet to a carnivore is giving your pet what is most appropriate for him. Raw meat and poultry, along with proper percentages of bone and organ meat, supply a naturally correct profile of amino acids and most vitamins and minerals. Also, inherent in the raw food are enzymes and bacteria that aid in digestion and play a key role in a healthy immune system.

But a number of raw food companies have begun pasteurizing their raw pet foods. This came in response to recalls after their foods tested positive for salmonella, a bacterium

Why “Less is More” When Feeding Your Pet Dry Kibble


How much to feed your cat or dog can sometimes be confusing, but it’s important to get it right. According to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, 45% of dogs in the US are overweight, making them more likely to suffer from health problems. In fact, we believe that 95% of the time that pets on dry food have chronic loose stool, diarrhea and gas, they are just being fed too much. Our first recommendation is to cut back on the amount of food fed and also to add some water to the diet.

There are many variables that contribute to the amount of food your pet needs, including his size and activity level, the quality of the pet food, and the type of food you are feeding. Understanding how dry kibble differs from canned or raw pet food will help you feed the appropriate amount to your pet.

Yet another pet food recall, this time from Nestlé Purina PetCare, has pet owners once again reviewing what they feed their animal companions. Recently the company announced the voluntary recall of its Purina ONE Vibrant Maturity 7+ Dry Cat Food because some bags of the product have been found to be contaminated with Salmonella.¹ Most pet food recalls that have occurred over the past ten years have been due to either pathogenic bacteria contamination, like salmonella or e. coli, or due to synthetic additives, such as melamine (synthetic protein) or a man-made vitamin or mineral.  

So how are we to protect our pets from possible sickness or death? Researching and understanding pet food
