The secret number 1…
All pets foods, use descriptive words such as choice and bonds, but few of them use the raw ingredients or choice in their diet. “The Secret”, in accordance with the rules of pet food, pet food can not claim, or the instructions on the label or advertising of the quality or the quality of the ingredients. You see, the “Premier” word when it is connected with a pet, if the power does not mean that the ingredients of a premium food. With pet food, the premium is not (can not) describe the food or what he does (he) can describe the quality of food. This is a marketing term, and that’s it. pet food regulations: “There are no symptoms or quality of the ingredients (Regulation PF5 D 3) How many words such as bonds or marketing choice and the right quality or distribution of the conditions that should not, as a term to describe, understand the quality of food.
Well, why do not the labels of pet food, to tell potential customers about the quality of its ingredients? No pet owners the right to know what to buy? This brings me to another secret…
The secret number 2…
If I can compare foods of “people” with regard to animal feed only for the second, we all know that there is different diet quality of individuals. There is White Castle (I’m guilty here, I love small) and this is Outback Steak House (another favorite). Both restaurants serve the meat and potatoes. White Castle is available for $ 3.00 a couple of burgers and fries in one order. In the Outback, you can cook a steak and potatoes for about $ 16.00. Both serve the potatoes and beef – but acknowledged that there are major differences between a hamburger and eating steak … Is not it?
The problem in the industry of food of animal origin – is that pet owners not to think in the same conditions as regards food. Do not think in terms of various types of fast food for pets and are no more nutritious type of restaurant, room for pets. In fact, some years ago, a young man tried this experiment with your own diet – no more fast food for 30 days. In just one month after the fast food three times a day, gained some weight, blood pressure and cholesterol levels exploded. Now imagine that your pet is eating these foods from your “whole life.
So, back to two of our dishes … Chemical analysis of food in the White Castle, which has a chemical test meal, was compared with the Outback – there will be two to analyze the protein, carbohydrates and fats. Regardless of whether you think the meat in the Outback is better quality than the protein-Burger – it would be for the analysis of proteins. The analysis does not measure the quality of the protein.
Here’s the secret … All animals with a guaranteed analysis showing the percentage of protein, fat, fiber and moisture in food. The real secret is as a proportion of protein, fat, etc.
In the chemical analysis of pet food – chicken legs will be to analyze proteins, although there is very little food. And as a cow that was slaughtered (put to sleep) due to illness, making it unfit for human consumption – for the analysis of proteins, although it would be dangerous for consumption. chicken feet and cow dead – – These two things can and the ingredients used in pet food. You see the secret of the industry, food manufacturers is an important gateway to the point where their ingredients. Only strict rule to be followed by food for adult dogs should be 18% protein, and for adult cats were analyzed with 26% protein for analysis. sources for acquiring such interest in the flesh, including “The man made a note of chicken legs for animals slaughtered in grain protein and human proteins and chemicals, many of the changes between them.
said animal tags – not allowed to speak – the sources used to obtain the necessary 18% and 26% protein. And what’s worse … Review of the quality of food manufacturers – companies that are 100% class human ingredients – not allowed to inform customers or potential customers that their products are high quality, human grade ingredients.
So how do you know if your pet food chicken feet or euthanized cows were used, or if it contains ingredients of the quality of a person?
The secret number 3…
If the premiums and the choice of words mean almost nothing about the quality of animal feed, and if some fodder to use chicken legs and animals slaughtered for food – as the owner knows the animal coming to feed their animals?
The great secret is to identify the ingredients. In contrast to the “people” products, where you can see very well for the quality of food, pet food is very different. Food People “Everyone should be the response of the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) and FDA (Food and Drug Administration) guidelines. The same is true for pets. Chicken feet and cow slaughtered for food human consumption, for obvious reasons is allowed – have no nutritional value, or may be dangerous to consume the same is not true for feeding the only way to know if it is chicken feet or cows slaughtered in the food for your pet to know what ingredients can be used..
“HCH” common ingredient in food material from a combination of many discarded remains of the people in the food industry. “Meat and bone” of the components can be anything from the heads of the stomach and intestines of cattle, (fear, but true), including animals slaughtered cows, horses, dogs and cats for veterinary clinics, shelters for animals and agriculture. And with these animals feed euthanasia drug also contains pentabarbitol used to euthanize animals. “Eating meat and bones” are also remains of restaurant grease and patients (including cancer) tissues cut the meat of animals slaughtered. In other words, this component is often a mix of much less waste and potentially harmful in people in the food industry.
“By-products” an ingredient or feed, or meat food products are almost the same as “flesh and blood. “There is a food ingredient is clearly a pet to someone who knows what.
Another component is similar to the above, “animal digest.”
Since the chicken feet I said – poultry chicken byproducts “or” products “or” chicken viscera meal or an entire chicken or poultry “The age of eating poultry products can be found in the ingredients list . – Including but not limited to chicken legs, skin, including some feathers, heads, chicken or poultry, and intestine of these ingredients is not the health of the birds do not matter, -. sick, dead, dying … All these components exist.
This is what you need … Before you buy pet food, turn the bag in the accuracy and review the list of ingredients. The ingredients are listed in the ingredients list first five or ten years. If you see one of these ingredients – it is my suggestion not to buy this food. Remember – the chicken legs and slaughtered animals not analyze proteins. That is all that is used in animal feed – just a proper analysis.
Another trick that some producers of animal feed used in this class increases with the grain and grain products for chemical additives to the protein content. What exactly is the reason for the withdrawal of food, the spring of 2007 began – the protein chemicals. Two different chemical additives – they have no nutritional value for animals but who have analyzed the protein – were added to cereal products (wheat gluten, corn gluten, rice gluten) just to provide cheap protein. Thousands of animals died and many other patients, since there is no problem of combining these two chemicals in the kidneys and urine fell. Again, the secret of the product, if there is a certain amount of protein analysis – no one is obligated to provide a management system of the protein quality of meat.
As for the list of ingredients – also must take into account the number of grains (corn, wheat, rice) and / or the number of cereal products (corn gluten meal, whole corn, ground corn, wheat, wheat meal, wheat gluten, rice, brown rice, brewers rice, soybean, etc.) that are listed in the first five or six ingredients. If more than corn in the first five ingredients – says it has bought some food from his cereal proteins.
Why cereal proteins to know it’s important for you to get? There are several reasons – the first scientific evidence that cats and dogs, as necessary, and thrive in the meat protein. If the food to get protein from sources of grain, meat animals, should be upheld. Second, if the corn, corn gluten, wheat gluten, rice gluten, or run the risk of adding chemicals such as melamime, used strictly to improve the analysis of proteins. Incidentally, this melamime chemicals found in March 2007 pet food recall. And there are problems with the grain – aflatoxin. Aflatoxin is a deadly tool that is usually in corn, wheat and soybeans and is responsible for a number of other foods like, you’ve probably never heard of. killed in December 2005, Diamond Pet Food moldy corn contained more than 100 animals before the product was recalled – all because of aflatoxin.
It is my recommendation that all feed, corn, wheat, soybeans or any amendment contains avoid. The risk is too high.
