Lightbulb Paleo Diet and Lifestyle for Dogs?

Why some think Paleo for dogs is a good idea...http://healthypets.mercola.com/sites...aleo-diet.aspx



Quote:
Today, Dr. Becker once again interviews one of her regular guests, Dr. Jean Hofve. Dr. Jean, who is best known for her work with cats, has just released a new book called Paleo Dog: Give Your Best Friend a Long Life, Healthy Weight, and Freedom from Illness by Nurturing His Inner Wolf.

Dr. Jean explains that in Paleo Dog, she advocates not only for a Paleo diet for canine companions, but a complete Paleo lifestyle. The lifestyle includes training, energetic exercise, proper rest, grounding, avoiding unnecessary toxins of all kinds, and reducing stress.

Dr. Jean discusses the inevitable criticism she’ll receive from processed pet food promoters who make it a point to bash any and all raw diets for pets.

She explains the motivation behind the campaign against raw pet food, and why it’s smart to simply ignore the tired old “scary bacteria” warnings.

The doctors also discuss a study published last year that suggests dogs have evolved to eat high-starch diets, why it’s not true, and why the study results are more a testament to the ability of dogs’ bodies to adapt to biologically inappropriate foods than proof that starchy foods are the “new” evolutionary diet of canines.

BARF (Bones and Raw Feeding)

............or, as mentioned in Dr Pitcairns natural pet health, "Go into the grocery store and pick ONE item, that is dried and has a 2 year shelf life. Now make that the sole source of your diet. Do you feel that is a healthy way to eat?"

Yes, corn and wheat are not good for dogs, but our country has an excess of those 2 products so they try to sneak them into any and every foodstuff there is, to dispose of it. As humans, we should not be the garbage disposal for unwanted crops and neither should our pets.
