Food & Feeding‎ > ‎

- Overview


Four Determinants of Your Dog's Health:
  1. Food
  2. Environment
  3. Health Care
  4. Genetic predisposition
Of these, you are responsible for the first three:
  • Food:  High quality species appropriate food is healthiest.  While kibble is NOT species appropriate food, some are more nourishing than others.
  • Environment:  Provide a safe, contaminant, and stress free environment.
  • Health Care:  Preventive health care is more cost-effective than treating illness that you inadvertently caused.

THINKING POINT
    People occasionally use the term people food when referring to plants or animals we eat.  This represents an assumption that everything on Earth evolved for human use or consumption.  Instead, consider that there is food and there is not food - depending on the species. 
    Consider that everything humans eat is also food for other organisms.
