Pets are a huge part of our life and as such, pet food is a $53 billion dollar industry. For some people, animal companions are the only family they have. Yet people still feed their cats and dogs anything that they would eat, including fast food. This is not a wise idea. Other people go shopping and simply select the food with the lowest price thinking that their pet isn’t going to mind anyway and after all, they should be lucky they are being fed. Sadly, this is a reality. Animals simply cannot speak for themselves and we are therefore in charge of making the right choices when it comes to feeding our pets. When you feed your pets poor food choices, they may get very sick. Over the course of a long period of time they may even develop diseases such as heart disease to cancer. The loss of a pet is something heartbreaking and prevention is the only solution. However, as consumers, it gets very confusing as far as what you should do because there are so many products on the market that range from pet weight loss to supplements that are supposed to increase the vim and vigor in each step your dog takes, etc., etc.. Sometimes these products will do more damage than good. In this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer will talk to world renowned pet food expert, Susan Thixton, Founder of Truth About Pet Food (www.truthaboutpetfood.com) how pet owners can improve the health of their pets in 2011 by making better choices about pet food. She will also explore the weight loss products for pets, how a pet owner can determine if their pet is overweight and what options you really have. Stay tuned!
