Watch Out - These Popular Diet Pet Foods Contain Sawdust

1 post in this topic

Story at-a-glance

 

  • In response to the epidemic of pet obesity, pet food companies are focused on “weight loss” formulas loaded with fiber, with the goal of making dogs and cats feel full
  •  
  • One very popular fiber used in “weight loss” pet foods is powdered cellulose (sawdust); too much of it and other types of unsuitable fiber can interfere with your pet's ability to digest and assimilate important nutrients
  •  
  • Chronic deprivation of nutrients to the cells can result in feelings of constant hunger, an indication your pet isn't getting enough of the right kind of protein to adequately sustain his biology
  •  
  • Dogs and cats do best on small amounts of suitable fiber as part of a nutritionally balanced, species-appropriate diet
  •  
  • The key to keeping your dog or cat at an ideal weight and nutritionally fit at the cellular level is a high-animal protein, moisture-rich diet fed in controlled portions, and augmented with plenty of physical activity
