Sandra Urwin - Why The Pet Bistro Dog Food?

Holistic Animal Care

Your pet’s food packing may advertise a product that is natural, grain free and premium but did you know these words have no legal meaning?All this means is the manufacturer can charge you more for those little brown balls that are highly processed! Did you know food labelling can be very misleading with claims of what is in your food?  A product that states “made with beef” can actually be as little as 3% beef!

Did you know – soy which is a known allergen to dogs can often be added to your food under the label of Vegetable extract?

Did you know soy, beets (not the red variety) oats and grains are used as fillers, so the manufacturer gets more bang for their buck!

 Real dog food is the key to a long healthy life, so it is vital for owners to pay careful attention to their pets’ diet.

A dogs digestive system is suited to natural fresh meat and vegetables diet, not highly processed food like kibble ( dog biscuits) In fact simply adding fresh food to a dogs diet has helped dogs recover from serious illnesses, improved skin conditions, allergies and resulted in more balanced energy levels. 

New Zealand is witnessing a huge issue with pets suffering the same diseases as humans, diabetes, joint issues, skin issues and cancer.
