If you've been looking for somewhere to buy recreational bones, look no further than Wabash Feed Store on Washington. Wabash sells the exclusive Primal Pet Foods Inc.line of canine culinary products. Primal Pet Foods makes pet food for customers who believe that dogs and cats should eat raw meats and poultry raised without antibiotics or added hormones, along with certified 100 percent organic fruits, vegetables and supplements -- and only chase organic bones.
You can find about more about the BARF (biologically appropriate raw food) diet for dogs and cats here. And once that's under way, you'll want to learn about the wisdom of rotating the single-source proteins in the dog dish on the fascinating Primal Foods blog.
On the other hand, if you are among the supremely particular pet owners who prefer to prepare their pets' organic health foods personally, you may be interested in the raw dog food recipes at Shirley's Wellness Café. This is a website dedicated to your pet's holistic health. It's just amazing how many beneficial supplements are available for your pet's food.
Here's a quote from Shirley: "I add Fulvic acids to Shasta's raw food diet...Fulvic acid acts as a refiner and transporter of organic materials and cell nutrients. According to A. Szalay, Fulvic acid has the ability to dramatically detoxify herbicides, pesticides and other poisons that it interacts with - this includes many radioactive elements."
Why not make this the year that you start obsessing about your doggie's diet instead of your own?
