What are the ingredients in your Pet's Food
... Do you really know?
Did you know some pet foods actually contain sawdust, chicken beaks, animal
toenails, and proven cancer causing agents?
Where does your dog or cat food rate? This is a gross topic with gross
injustices. It is one you need to read.
Many claim crude by-products as a source of protein on the label of their
foods. Let us give you an example; while it is a true statement shoe leather
is a source of protein, neither you nor your pet would actually derive any
nutritional benefit from eating shoes. The reason is, the protein is not
Said another way, you or your pet’s system cannot extract any measurable
amount of protein from that source.
There are so many different brands of pet food on the market today for dogs
and cats. How do you know which is the best for your pet?
Many promise good health, top of the line nutrition and natural
ingredients. But is your animal really getting it?
labels is the most important step
in finding a food worthy for your
Most commercial foods are loaded with preservatives, additives,
by-products, fillers and sodium. One or all of these ingredients could be
detrimental to your pet’s health, causing a range of problems like allergic
reaction, intestinal upset, skin disease, kidney and liver failure or even
Another thing the major pet food manufacturers do not tell you are that
many commercial brands also contain the 4 “D’s” (Dead, Diseased, Dying,
Decaying animal parts).
The fact is, when a dairy cow or a farming chicken becomes ill, they
don’t dispose of the body, THEY SELL IT TO PET FOOD MANUFACTURERES! This
represents millions of dollars to the ranchers of the world.
Are fillers, crude by-products, dead and dying animals, & chemical
preservatives that are proven to cause disease what you really think is going
to give your precious pet abundant and robust health and a shiny coat?
We can show you what to look for so you can make the best decision for your
pet. Do Not just buy a food because it advertises “Natural” or
“Premium”. Base your decision on the following:
1. Fillers are a Red Flag! The first
ingredient on a label is always your main ingredient, as you probably know.
Make sure the first one or two ingredients are Not fillers.
Fillers are usually corn or wheat.
These grains are cheap to purchase.
Avoid fillers like corn or wheat!.....It's a big waste of your
hard earned dollar....and not very healthy for your pet either.
Do not be fooled by “fancy” fillers like Quinoa, oatmeal, millet, etc.
These have been ingeniously added to the ingredient list because recently
people have discovered them as a healthy part of the human diet.
But animals have a completely different set of needs and reactions to these
foods. Foods with a high level of fillers are NOT giving your pet a
well-balanced healthy meal.
Instead, he/she will be getting a meal, which will make him feel full. Your
pet can become bloated, even lethargic. Over time, he or she may suffer from
digestive complications, distension, or organ disease.
Wheat and corn for example are the NUMBER ONE cause of food related
allergies and intestinal upset in animals. Could you imagine your dog, in the
wild, hunting for a husk of corn?
2. Know the meat source: Beef or
chicken “by-products” means this brand does not contain pure beef or
chicken. By-products are hair, feet, ears, noses, tails, fat undeveloped and
diseased organs and worse.
Look for meat such as lamb, beef, turkey or chicken (to name a few). These
are good, healthful ingredients. Chicken “meal” is also a good source of
meat, with the water and fat removed in processing, allowing a more pure
source of protein.
3. Keep preservatives and additives away.
Most preservatives and additives are known to cause cancer over
long-term consumption for animals and humans. Cumulative effects take hold
especially if your dog or cat eats twice a day, every day, year after year.
Truly all natural foods do not contain chemical preservatives or additives
and will state it proudly on their labels. You will have a hard time finding
these high-integrity brands at your local grocery store.
However, they can be found worldwide in small specialty stores, feed
stores, and through the internet. Now, these are available to any person who
wants the very best for their pets.
4. Do not listen to just your breeder, veterinarian, groomer or pet
store clerk. Take their opinions and listen to your heart. These good people
come from a personal reference and pride that what they know and have been
doing for their animals is the best. Offering you advice different from what
they feel is sufficient for their own pets or being open to another way, would
be like admitting a personal defeat. You definitely want to avoid their
Remember: no one will ever care about your pet
as much as you.
You must seek out good information like these reports and professionals
always looking for the best products and improved formulas.
A final note on price. When shopping for these natural brands, consider the
VALUE of your purchase. You will get more for your dollar.
Natural brands seem higher in price at first glance. But look again. These
foods are nutrient DENSE. Because these natural products are nutrient
dense......You feed LESS
than the cheaper commercial brands!
And your pet is actually getting more and better nutrition in the
The natural brands are actually Cheaper Per
Serving than the brands with less nutrition.
Natural food will: * last longer * save on vet bills in the long run * and
even reduce the waste your pet produces (this is a result of a no filler, high
quality diet your pet’s system can absorb and utilize better).
The food you feed your pet is the Single Most Important thing you can do
for your pets’ health and your wallet.
Tippy & Alfred know that this is the most important information you can
ever receive for your pet's health. Our pets are what we feed them.
Degenerative type diseases, skin and coat problems, allergies, and many
other ailments including accelerated aging are becoming more and more of a
problem with pets these days.
We hate to see that.
But Tippy & Alfred and the rest of the help-purrs are living proof that
problems such as mentioned above don't have to occur nearly as frequently, or
even at all.
Tippy, Alfred, and the rest of the kitties have not made one single visit
to the vets for health related problems since Dave started giving them the

"My dog, Chichi, is now eating Life's Abundance food and Loving It! My

"When he finished the Life's Abundance food, Tom decided to see how he
would do on store-bought until I had time to set up the autoship again."
"So, for a month Falcor ate grocery-store dog food."

right! Within two weeks, Falcor's coat got dull, and he began having bouts of
diarrhea. And he was shedding madly."
"So...the coat problem could have been just from being at a shedding
point, right? Diarrhea could have been from the new bones Tom gave him."
"But...after 3 weeks, we noticed that he was scratching all the time,
and had chewed the hair off under his front legs. His shedding increased, and
his breath began to stink."

"flea allergy" that no doubt was actually malnutrition. I had no
