NATIONAL COOK FOR YOUR PETS DAY
November 1st celebrates National Cook For Your Pets Day. This national holiday encourages cooking something for the pet companion in your life.
You love your pet. And you want to provide what is best for them. So why not try to make them healthy, home-cooked food? No matter what kind of pet you have – dog, cat, lizard, mouse, get cooking!
A lot of people these days are concerned about the food they eat and where that food, or the ingredients, come from. Most of our food supply today is processed and loaded with fillers. The same applies to our pet food. Animals need to eat a natural diet to be at optimal health, and most of the pet food you buy has a lot of unnatural things in it. If you cook or make your own pet food at home, you are in control.
It’s best to start by consulting with your vet. Veterinarians will know just what your pet’s nutrition needs are. Additionally, they will have ample advice that can be tailored for you and your furry loved one. Next, do some research. Some foods should be avoided since they could be detrimental to your pet’s health. A couple of things to avoid are chocolate, onions, avocados, garlic, salt, yeast dough, tomato leaves and stems, and milk-based foods.
Your next step in this adventure would be to decide what will be on your pet’s menu. The internet can be your friend with this, by helping you to find recipes and different ideas.
And last, but not least, enjoy yourself in this culinary adventure. Our pets do a lot for us. They give us unconditional love, so celebrate National Cook For Your Pets Day by giving them that kind of love back in a delicious, nutritious home-cooked meal!
