Baggins' Bites What Else Can You Feed Your Dog?
April 10, 2007
Dear Fellow Dog Lover,

The pet food recall keeps growing.

As of April 2, ANOTHER pet food company has recalled itís dog, cat and ferret treats because of fears of salmonella poisoning.

Dingo Chick' N Jerky, Dingo Kitty Chicken Jerky and Dingo Ferret Chicken Jerky treats sold at Target, Petsmart and other stores are on this recall.

Think of it, salmonella, melamine (a type of plastic attributed to causing kidney failure) whatís next?

If youíre one of the millions of people questioning what youíre now feeding your animals itís time to take a look at other options.

In previous issues of Bagginsí Bites', Iíve discussed Dr. Pitcairnís book, he's one of the worldís authorities on healthy animals from the inside out and a huge fan of home-prepared meals.

He simplifies the process and features recipes in his book Dr. Pitcairn's New Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs and Cats that include the vitamin additions necessary for a healthy pet. Though some of the ingredients I had to look up. (Bonemeal doesnít usually make my grocery list) I think itís fairly simple once you get started. And it can be cheaper than premium kibble. Plus itís not as processed and Baggins LOVES it!!!

Kitchen Mix-Ins

If youíre not quite ready to go all the way with a home-prepared diet, you can get started by adding lightly cooked veggies to your petís regular food and maybe some chicken broth. Even cottage cheese can be mixed in with your dogís food for extra protein.

Dr. Pitcairn's New Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs and Cats can help you learn about the all important overall health of your pet. It's a great resource and recommended by holistic vets. Isn't it great there are so many options for us and our pets? We don't have to blindly listen to conventional healthcare practices but can learn and make better decisions.
