Animal Diet - For cats and dogs

Animals have adapted to their normal diets over thousands of years; consequently Holistic Therapists are inclined to recommend a natural diet to help keep your pet in the best of health.

I suggest the following diet for Cats and Dogs. This is based on availability in New Zealand so may not necessarily be available in other countries, or may be available under a different name.

bullet

Raw meat -horse, rabbit, venison, kangaroo or buffalo etc.
A good variety of vegetables including greens.
 

bullet

Pasta or brown rice - provides carbohydrate intake.
 

bullet

Organic Yogurt - provides bacteria necessary for a healthy functioning intestine.
 

bullet

Full Cream Milk - for calcium and fat intake.

Raw Garlic - a natural wormer

Brewers Yeast - Cats 2 or 3 dessertspoons. Dogs - 3 to 4 desert-spoons
(provides B complex vitamins essential for nervous system.)
 

bullet

Kelp powder - Cats 1 to 2 teaspoons. Dogs 2 to 4 teaspoons
(Provides about 60 different minerals and trace elements.)
 

bullet

Dolomite - Cats 1 teaspoon. Dogs 2 to 3 teaspoons.
(A natural clay providing easily assimilated forms of calcium and magnesium.)

Raw Bones - Provides calcium and phosphorus.

Water - Free access to water at all times. It is useful to know how much water is consumed by the animal on a daily basis. Any marked variation can indicate a problem.
