The Basis – Healthy Diet for Dogs

Diet for dogs

Once the dog comes to us, he can not live as nature intended for him. We are quickly tempted to transfer our idea of a good life to the dog. Believing the best for our four-legged friend, we draw on our human experience and apply it to our dogs. The dog is an animal with very different needs than humans. To do justice to it, it is important to collect and apply information about it. It is our responsibility to meet its animal needs and to provide for proper movement, healthy nutrition/drinking, adequate sleep/rest, supportive environment and good care.

An important basis is a diet.

Since our dogs now suffer from the same diseases as humans, it is necessary to investigate the reasons for this in more detail.

  • cancer
  • Cardiovascular disorders
  • Gastrointestinal disease
  • Diseases of the musculoskeletal system
  • Diseases of the urinary organs
  • Skin and coat disorders
  • allergies
  • Neurological diseases

This means that we can influence the health of our four-legged friends through the diet. Animals fed on high-quality feed have a healthy gastrointestinal system. This will help your immune system cope better with viruses, bacteria, fungi, environmental toxins, and chemicals. The chemical analysis of feed is not sufficient for a healthy supply of the body. The ingredients must be bioavailable to the metabolism, that is, they must be present to the body in such a way that it can utilize them. An example: If the body lacks calcium and this is given to the dog in powder or tablets to eat, it is absorbed by the body and is also detectable in the blood, but the cells can not absorb these chemically produced molecules in the cells.

 

Conclusion: The quality and origin of the food and the way in which our four-legged friends are fed form the basis for a healthy, long and satisfied life for our animals.

DECLARATION AND INGREDIENTS

What’s on the packaging?

Declaration

The declaration on the food packaging is mandatory and must comply with the guidelines of the country where the food is produced. So feed on other countries is subject to their guidelines and is only translated into German! The information in brochures, on the Internet or the phone are voluntary and are not subject to any control! From the declaration, one can only very conditionally conclude on the quality of the feed; the analysis gives further hints. It is not mandatory! The best before date must be listed. The longer food may be on the shelf, the more preservatives are added! A good alternative is the mail order because the goods are delivered fresh and not stored long in the store. Statements about the production and processing are not normally on the packaging, but they are very important for the quality. The better the food, the more information is given voluntarily, and nothing has to be left out or hidden behind difficult descriptions.

Composition

In the composition, the individual ingredients are listed. All listed additives such as vitamins, amino acids, etc. are added artificially, and it is not clear which preservatives, antibiotics, pesticides, etc. already contained in the starting materials. These do not have to be disclosed. The contained vitamins and trace elements from the ingredients are not listed under the composition. Only the synthetically produced vitamins, trace elements, and amino acids are visible.

Different types of declaration

Open declaration

The individual ingredients are listed in descending order of their weight proportions. However, manufacturers may indicate different forms of a substance separately, which means that, e.g., meat is listed in the first place, although cereals take a much higher share (divided into ground maize, corn gluten, wheat flour, wheat, etc.). Also, the component names are not unique. What exactly is poultry meal or animal protein? Beware of the antioxidants and preservatives. They are legally hidden behind designations EG additive xy or antioxidants xy. Also, synthetic vitamins E and C or beta-carotene are antioxidants! BHA, BHT, ethoxyquin, etc. can be shown to be harmful to health.

Closed declaration

The ingredients are grouped. Wheat, rice, corn and other cereals are listed as cereals. If there are also adhesives, after-meals, etc., the group is called cereals and vegetable by-products. The same applies to meat, fish, milk, etc., i.e., meat or meat and animal by-products, milk or milk, and dairy by-products, etc. The type of declaration says only something about the proportions, but nothing about the type and quality of the ingredients used.

Ingredients

The content of ingredients is obtained by chemical analysis of the feed. They are given in crude protein, crude fat, crude fiber and raw ash. The individual values are subject to tolerance limits ( an adaptation of the feed law to EU standard!) So that the stated and the actual quantities in the feed can differ greatly. Also, the values of this information do not say anything about the quality and usability of the feed. Does it make a big difference to the health of the dog, whether, e.g.?Chicken? Comes from battery hens or live animals or weather? Rind? From an animal meal or slaughtered animals.

crude protein

These are the nitrogenous components in the feed, so proteins. These proteins can come from animal or vegetable sources. Also included here are sewage sludge, claws, feathers, animal meal, etc. The building blocks of the proteins are of great importance to the dog, they are in the tissue, in the coat, in the tapes, in the cartilage and are responsible for transport, regulation, and growth. Unfortunately, proteins of dubious origin are often used because they are cheap to get on the market.

 

Crude Fat

Even with fats, there are again animal and vegetable. They are divided into saturated and unsaturated fatty acids. Again, the consumer does not recognize the quality of the fats again. Low-quality fats can lead to liver damage and subsequently cardiovascular disease. They serve the transport of nutrients, the protection of organs and nerves, isolation and energy supply.

 Crude fiber

By this one understands all indigestible, vegetable components. Excessive crude fiber content increases the number of feces and indicates the use of inferior plant sources. Too little crude fiber or poor quality will affect the absorption of essential nutrients and affect the intestinal flora. Mostly we find too much raw fiber in the feed because it is a cheap additive. The healthy dog ​​does not need more than 3% crude fiber content. They are necessary for good digestion, bind pollutants, train the intestinal muscles and have an effect on a healthy intestinal flora.

 Raw ash

Here we find the sum of minerals and trace elements, but also other sources of inorganic matter such as sand, feathers, animal meal, bones and other impurities. If the proportion of raw ash is too low, an optimal mineral supply is questionable. However, if it is too high, the kidney is overloaded, and the bones are affected. Minerals are involved in all metabolic processes. For the body, it is important that they are in the balance with each other. Quality is important here as well. Otherwise, they will be insufficiently available to the body.

The five elements of good dog nutrition

1. Naturally produced ingredients.

The meat comes from extensive, i. All year on cattle held cattle.

Herring and salmon oil come from wild catch.

 

2. Extremely gentle processing by cold pressing

Due to the gentle production process of cold pressing (use of low temperatures – below 40 ° C), the original ingredients are hardly changed, vitamins, and heat-sensitive plant substances are retained, as well as the natural fats and odors. The vitality of the pressed food is hardly affected, and the liveliness of the food is preserved.

 

The gentle processing of the 5-E dog food, the choice of ingredients and short storage times make additional artificial preservatives and antioxidants superfluous. Also, the cold-pressed dog food is free of artificial colorants, attractants, and flavorings.

 

3. Bio-energetically meaningful composition

In the recipe, not only the nutritional value of the ingredients but also the energetic qualities of the ingredients are taken into account (s.u.). The composition of the ingredients is bioenergetically meaningful and aligned with the principles of traditional Chinese medicine. On the one hand, the nutritional values ​​and the energetic qualities of the ingredients are taken into account, on the other hand, all elements of the Chinese 5-element doctrine and the 5-energy levels. Thus, all organs of the body are evenly stimulated and nourished, and the animal gets the necessary vital energy for a healthy organism. Through this unique carefully matched formula and the special production process of cold pressing high bioavailability, good recovery and good compatibility of the feed are achieved, This leads to noticeably more fitness, charisma and natural health of the dog.

 

 

4. Waiver of synthetic additives

Due to the selection of ingredients and careful processing of the five-element food, neither preservatives nor overdoses of artificial vitamins are necessary as antioxidants. The original ingredients are hardly changed, vitamins, and heat-sensitive plant substances are retained, as well as the natural fats and odors.

The vitality of the pressed food is hardly affected, and the liveliness of the food is preserved. Also, the cold-pressed dog food is free of artificial colorants, attractants, and flavorings.

 

5. Freshness through shortest transport routes

The 5-E pet food is produced in Germany in small batches and delivered directly. This protects the environment and always guarantees fresh goods. For the production of the feed natural environmentally friendly water power is used.

Bio-energetically meaningful composition according to the principles of traditional Chinese medicine.

 

The balance of elements distribution:

All elements of the Chinese five element doctrine are represented in the recipe and are in ideal relationship to each other. The Earth-quality ingredients make up the majority and are supplemented with herbs that nourish the elements of fire, metal, water, and wood. Thus, all organs of the body are evenly stimulated and nourished, imbalances (states of fullness or emptiness) by malnutrition arise.

Thermal effect: neutral

Energetically warm, i. the metabolically stimulating, energy-activating components are in the balance with cool, i.e., substance-building and regenerating ingredients. Heat or cold diseases in the sense of Chinese medicine (for example, gastritis, arthritis or arthrosis) cannot arise as a result of malnutrition.
