Calcium from Food, Not Laboratories, Safest for Pets

Dogs and cats, like humans, need the natural mineral calcium to support healthy bones for an active lifestyle. But calcium is not made by your pet’s body, so it must come from his diet. Wild dogs and cats get calcium by consuming their entire prey, including the bones. But domesticated animals rely on commercial pet foods we feed them, and some sources of calcium are safer for your pets than others.

How Feeding Pets Raw Food is Healthy and Easy

Many pet experts suggest feeding pets a raw diet. A food that consists primarily of the right meat ingredients is the most biologically-appropriate thing you can feed dogs and cats, natural carnivores in the wild. It can lead to a healthier, more vibrant pet, as well as lower vet bills.  

However, may pet parents thinking about switching pets from dry kibble or canned pet food to a commercial raw diet are sometimes hesitant, concerned about the possibility of adding inconvenience to an already busy life. But feeding your pet a raw diet doesn’t have to be overly complicated. Some suggestions from a few experts can make feeding your cat or dog raw food much easier.
