2. Safe guard your pets against the Environment


Knowing what to feed their pets is not enough, it is also important for pet owners to know how to feed their pets. Before we take a look at the optimal diet for a pet, let's review 12 important feeding principles of which every pet lover should be aware:



  Feeding your pet the optimal diet - The Natural Alternative


Feeding Principles


Feed your pet at the same time (or times) each day to keep appetite steady and bowel movements regular.

Don't feed your pet immediately before or after hard exercise or play, or before a long car ride.

Serve fresh food at each feeding.

Serve the food at room temperature only.

Allow your pet about 15 minutes to eat, then remove uneaten food. Never allow extra food to remain after your pet is finished with it.

Keep distractions to a minimum while your pet is eating.

Dry food should be stored in a cool place protected from insects and rodents. Leftover canned food should not be kept refrigerated - either use it all or discard. Soft-moist food does not require refrigeration either, but it should be kept sealed until used.
Don't be alarmed if there are times when your perfectly healthy pet shows no particular interest in eating. At one time in the wild, dogs and cats led a feast-or-famine existence, and this may be the animal's natural way of giving its stomach a rest.
Variety is important, but abrupt changes 'in diet can cause digestive problems. When changing to a new diet, do so gradually by adding a little of the new food to the former food bit by bit until the change is complete.

Make the pet feeding process easier by building it around the one you follow for your own meals. This means you won't have to make a separate job out of feeding your pet.
Water is critical to the health and well-being of your pet, and a continuous supply of fresh drinking water must always be available to maintain fluid balance.
Give Pet Sun Chlorella to your pet. It has all the nutrients your pet needs for extra protection and superior health.

If you have been feeding your pets only commercially purchased dog food, now may be the time to add some fresh food into their diets. Start adding bits of chicken or other meat from your family dinner to your pet's bowl (or leftovers that might otherwise get thrown out). Next, as you chop up raw vegetables for your family's salad, chop up a few extra pieces for your pet and put them into its bowl. Gradually start adding grains and fruits.

Unique and different pets sometimes have special needs for the "Optimal Diet." Depending on the natural diet of your pet, you can adjust the following "Optimal Diet" plan given to suit your pet's nutritional requirements.

The Optimal Diet

Meat: One-third to one-half (for dogs) and three quarters ( for cats) of the daily serving should be comprised of meat, preferably raw. Approximately, one-sixth of the daily meat serving should be organ meat (e.g. heart, kidney, gizzard, spleen). Provide fish perhaps twice a week and chicken often. Never feed your cat any type of bone.

Vegetable, fruits, & grains:
The rest of the daily serving should be comprised of grated raw carrot or other grated raw fruits and vegetables; cooked brown rice, whole grain breads or cereals, or chopped nuts.

Milk products: Yogurt or unpasturized milk should be given several times a week.

Fats: Polyunsaturated fat daily (in the form of soybean oil, sesame oil, etc.)

Eggs: One or two raw egg yolks (no whites), or soft-cooked whole eggs a week.

Dry dog or cat food (optional): Supplement your pet's serving with one of the purer dry foods from a health food store.

Pure water: It is especially important to maintain proper fluid balance.

Vitamin and mineral supplements (some nutritional veterinarians consider these optional for the healthy pet): Vitamin C (in the form of sodium ascorbate), Vitamin E, and multi vitamin / mineral supplements formulated for dogs.

Pet Sun Chlorella has all these vitamins and more!


Although a natural diet may be the best for your pet's health, you should consult a holistic veterinarian before making any major dietary changes. Your vet will be able to tell you what is best for your individual pets. They will also be able to tell you what foods should be avoided.

For instance, chocolate is known to be poisonous to most animals. Apple seeds, onion powder, and bread dough are other foods to avoid giving your pet.

The purpose of nutrition should be to support an animal with nutrients in order for him or her to have the best of life. Consider all of your options for your pet. While natural health therapies for illness and disease are not new, many more pet owners are considering them for the first time. Proper nutrition and diet may be your pet's best defense against many illnesses and diseases.
