"Is Your Dog's Diet Underperforming?"
If you've ever watched any nature programs on TV, you can't help but be in awe of animals that live in the wild.
With only the instincts they were born with, they quickly master all methods necessary for their survival.
Carnivores -- the meat-eaters -- come into the world hard-wired with the skill, agility, and power to hunt other animals. Animals whose meat will provide them the perfect nourishment they need to support their overall strength and power.
Take wolves, for instance.
In the wild, they travel in packs (after all, there's safety in numbers).
One wolf in particular is designated as the pack leader -- the alpha male. The alpha is always the strongest and most dominant member of the group who chooses the strongest and most dominant female as his mate -- the alpha female.
During the hunt for food, all members of the pack participate as a well-orchestrated team to cunningly and stealthily stalk and take down their prey.
In a successful hunt, the others stand aside as the alpha wolves step forward to claim the best part of the "meal" -- the organ meat of the felled animal.
They leave the muscles and other parts of the animal for the rest of the pack.
The alpha wolves know instinctively the densest nutrients necessary for their best health reside in the tender organs of the body -- particularly the liver -- a virtual powerhouse of strength-building nutrition.
You see, out in the wild it's all about survival of the fittest. And without plenty of pure, raw meat, carnivores like the wolf would weaken and die.
Why am I telling you this story about the eating habits of wolves out in the wild?
Well, let me ask you this...
Doesn't Your Dog Deserve the Same Pure
Nutrition as Alpha Wolves in the Wild?
You may or may not know this, but that loving, devoted, tail-wagging member of your family is almost genetically identical to the wolves I just told you about
In fact, research has shown that there's only a 0.2% difference between your dog's DNA sequence and that of the Gray Wolf. And the distinction is so small, they're both classified in Mammal Species of the World, under the same species name -- Canis lupus.
What does that mean?
It means your "'best friend" is a born meat-eater -- a carnivore -- just like the wolves in the wild.
Their bodies and digestive systems are designed, by nature, to consume mostly meat in order to be the healthiest they can be.
Just like your own body is designed to eat the right amount of pure, ingredients to support your overall good health and well-being, the same is true for your dog.
And yet, most dog foods and treats out on the market today contain everything but meat.
Read your pet's treat ingredient label: if meat is listed, it's usually followed by several other ingredients that are unnecessary for good health.
Most treats are full of grains and fillers -- with only a fraction of the ingredients being real meat. Some treats don't contain any meat at all, but are instead sprayed with a thin coating of meat flavoring to trick your dog (and you) into thinking they're getting a meaty treat.
Does that sound like something your carnivore needs in their diet?
Why Your Canine Was NOT Designed to Eat Grains!
As stated above, your dog is a carnivore, not an herbivore.
What difference does that make, you ask?
An herbivore is equipped to digest plant foods and cellulose because of the rumens they have -- the first division of the stomach of herbivores in which most food collects immediately after being swallowed, and from which it is later returned to the mouth as cud for more thorough chewing. Your dog doesn't have rumens to do this.
Secondly, your dog's pancreas is unable to secrete cellulase to split the cellulose into glucose molecules.
Lastly, dogs are not efficient at digesting, assimilating, and utilizing plant material as a source of high-quality protein (contrary to what pet food manufacturers would have you believe).
Plants like rice, soybean meal, wheat, and corn have very limited usefulness in the meat-eaters diet. They are simply not good choices for a dietary foundation that optimally nourishes meat-eating animals.
Why Your Dog Craves Meat
It's not that your dog craves meat just to be difficult...
You see, twenty-two different amino acids are necessary for your dog's various metabolic and energy requirements.
But dogs are only able to synthesize twelve of these internally. So therefore they must rely on their diet to obtain the other ten. These amino acids are called essential amino acids, because dogs cannot produce them internally, and therefore it's essential to obtain them from diet.
Herbivores like cows can produce amino acids largely by the billions of microorganisms along their multi-stomached and lengthy gastrointestinal tracts.
Our dog friends by contrast have relatively short, simple GI tracts which are unable to capitalize on microbe amino acid synthesis, and therefore require pre-formed amino acids directly from their food.
That's why carbohydrates should never be a main staple of your dog's diet. To maintain their proper health, protein should form the firm foundation of your dog's food supply.
What's more, those protein sources should contain a wide spectrum of amino acids, knowing that your dog's GI tract and health depend on it.
Since we know that corn provides just four amino acids out of twenty-two, it's not a good source of protein for your dog -- regardless of what pet food manufacturers say or imply. (More on that in a moment.)
Viable protein sources with wide-spectrum amino acid support include beef, bison, chicken, eggs, fish, lamb, turkey, duck, venison, elk, and goat. .
It's much more expensive to produce foods and treats with a beef, bison, or other quality protein-foundation. Their financial stake supersedes any concern they have for your particular "best friend".
Price dictates what foundational food will comprise their pet food offerings...
Bogus 'Protein' Beefing up the Label
Enter... corn -- a cheap, plentiful "filler" product.
Corn fills the pet food bags, creating the illusion of giving more food for your money. And fills the pet's stomach, making your dog feel satisfied (for a time, anyway).
What's more, it contains just enough (low-quality) protein to enable the manufacturer to list it as a protein, 'beefing up' the protein quantities enough to label it as "complete and balanced."
Don't let them fool you!
Cheap ingredients based on plant products result in cheap pet foods -- which always turn out to be a poor choice for nourishing a meat-eater. Dogs (cats, too!) are livelier and healthier when meat, poultry, lamb, and fish are the foundation of their diets.
In addition, corn is one of the most frequent genetically modified "foods" there is. Why would you want to give that to your precious dog? If genetically modified foods aren't good for you, I'm pretty sure they're not good for your pet either.
Isn't it time we choose to feed our beloved dogs as the meat eaters they are -- and denounce the senseless practice of feeding them as if they're herbivores simply because it's cheaper to do so?
I believe that as our pets' caregivers, we have an obligation to discover what they really need nutritionally and provide it for them.
But it's much more than an obligation...
You love your best friend, so why would you choose anything less than the best for them?
Liver may indeed be the best choice of all...
Why Liver is Your "Best Friend's" Best Friend
Organ tissues -- such as beef and bison liver -- provide the essential amino acids necessary to supply your dog's high protein needs.
In addition to essential amino acids and high-quality protein, animal liver is one of the most nutrient-rich foods available. That's because it provides:
- One of the most concentrated sources of vitamin A
- A natural source of vitamin D
- A rich source of iron
- All the B vitamins -- particularly B-12
- Important minerals such as phosphorus, copper, and trace minerals
It's easy to see why liver is such powerful nutrition for your dog.
And a very tasty treat befitting the alpha, also...
Tasty, High-Quality Protein Dog Treats
Just as you should avoid snacking on empty-calorie, nutrient-deficient junk food, your dog shouldn't fill up on junky snacks either.
So I formulated a tasty dog treat made using 100% pure meat... specifically to enhance your dog's nutritional needs.
Allow me to introduce Mercola Healthy Pet Beef and Bison Treats -- made with grass-fed beef and bison liver.
The exact same food alpha wolves in the wild seek first when it's time to eat. And a wonderfully healthy snack and treat option for your canine companion. Treats and rewards are a huge part of your best buddy's daily life.
So why not show them how much you love them with good, nutritionally sound treats? Now you can... with Mercola Healthy Pet Beef and Bison Bites.
Let me start by telling you what Beef and Bison Bites are not.
They do not contain any:
- Imported ingredients of any kind
- Grains, soy or unnecessary fillers
- Rendered animal by-products
- Chemicals or artificial preservatives
- High-allergenic potential glutens
Here's what Mercola Healthy Pet Beef and Bison Bites are:
- ree-range, grass-fed beef and bison liver
- 100% USA born and bred ingredients
- Held to the strictest USDA standards of inspection
- Preserved with vitamin E
- A treat so tasty your dog will probably beg for more
You can rest easy knowing you're treating your best canine pal to the 100% pure meat snack its digestive system was designed to handle. And I have even more good news for you...there’s another highly beneficial meat treat to choose from!
Introducing – Premium Liver Treats with Antioxidants
Since I am such a believer in the importance of top-quality protein treats for your dog, I decided to give you not only one, but two options.
My Liver and Berry Bites are an organic treat that contain berries with some of the most potent antioxidants in nature.
Dogs young and old can benefit from increased antioxidant intake in their diets.
The 100% pure beef liver meat in the treat is not only free range and grass fed, but I would be so bold as to say I would consider it the most premium treat available on the market, anywhere. In fact, I believe it’s far superior to my Beef and Bison Bites!
Super Berries with Advanced Antioxidant Power
I didn’t use just any berries in my premium treats, I use only organic berries with some of the highest levels of antioxidants - pomegranates, blueberries, and raspberries.
Pomegranates, in particular, contain vitamin C and have high levels of flavonoids and polyphenols, both potent antioxidants. Blueberries contain healthy fiber and powerful antioxidants called anthocyanins. And raspberries provide potassium, magnesium, and other beneficial minerals.
Using only organic berries was an absolute must for me. Berries are some of the most heavily sprayed crops. Using organic berries avoids the risk of contamination from pesticides and herbicides, and ensures your pet doesn’t ingest these potentially harmful chemicals.
Free-Range, Grass Fed Beef
Just like my Beef and Bison Bites, the beef used for the Liver and Berry Bites is free-range, grass-fed beef.
In fact, even with the already extremely high quality of the Beef and Bison bites, this treat goes even a little further. In terms of the quality of the beef for the Liver and Berry Bites, it’s a truly stand out treat.
Just like the Beef and Bison Bites, the Liver and Berry Bites also have NO:
- Imported ingredients of any kind
- Grains, soy, or unnecessary fillers
- Rendered animal by-products
- Chemicals or artificial preservatives
The beef liver in Liver and Berry Bites comes from cows that are grass-fed and never fed corn. Plus, no synthetic hormones are added to the beef.
With only four high-quality ingredients (beef liver, organic pomegranate, organic blueberries, and organic raspberries) it’s a truly beneficial, pure, satisfying treat for your pup.
Pets Love the Taste!
Whereas dogs love and crave the taste of meat, sometimes it’s hard to get finicky dogs to eat high antioxidant foods like berries. Liver and Berry Bites are a perfect solution to help your pets get quality antioxidants into their diet!
To make these delicious treats, whole organic berries are ground together with premium beef liver – giving the tantalizing overall taste of meat that dogs love!
During the taste testing of Liver and Berry Bites, there was 100% palatability among dogs. I can tell you from experience they cannot get enough!
These treats are all handmade from start to finish. And they are not only manufactured in the US, but all of the ingredients are sourced in the US as well.
And one more thing that will make you breathe a big sigh of relief...
There's Nothing Foreign Lurking in Our Pet Treats
Like everyone else, I was sickened by the horrible events that took place in 2007.
Thousands of cats and dogs fell ill and died due to tainted pet food containing the toxic ingredient melamine -- a chemical commonly used in plastics and fertilizers -- found in wheat gluten and rice protein concentrate imported from China.
Hundreds of pet food products disappeared from store shelves, inciting nationwide fear among pet owners.
Well, as a holistic veterinarian, I'm 100% dedicated to the health and safety of your precious pets.
And what that means is that Mercola Healthy Pet Beef and Bison Bites and Liver and Berry Bites contain only the highest quality, good old American born and bred ingredients.
Nothing from China -- ever!
Or from anywhere else outside of the US, for that matter.
Your dog is your best friend, so it only stands to reason he should have the very best, highest quality treats available.
