This line of products was formulated by Dr. Jane Bicks, DVM. She has been a holistic vet for over 20 years. She has served as President of the American Veterinarian Association of New York City, earned three Presidential Citations, appointed by Mayor Rudolph Guliano to help establish one of the largest animal shelters in the world, the author of three books on responsible care and treatment of pets, and has appeared on 48 Hours, Good Morning America, CNN, Discovery Channel, Animal Planet and more. She has also created a non-profit foundation where a percentage of her product line is contributed towards rescue and care for pets.
Needless to say, I was pretty impressed. I learned that pet food was developed around World War II. It consisted of left over grains that were rejected for human consumption. It was recognized very quickly that grains alone were not providing adequate nutrition so protein was added. Again, with the source being rejected meat for human consumption, dead, diseased, dying, disabled or drugged animals met the criteria.
Did you know that our pets genetically can live to be 20+ years old but the current average is 13-15? While many factors help the longevity of life - environment, health care, etc. - nutrition is one of the most important factors.
Many of the ingredients in commercial brands of pet food today cause a shorter life span due to the ingredients that cause stress on their kidney and liver functions which include wheat, corn, and soy. These are also major allergens to our pets.
Another problem that we see in commercial brands is the use of by-products such as chicken heads, duck bills, fish heads, chicken and turkey feet, bones and diseased and contaminated slaughterhouse meat can also be included in our pet foods! BHA and BHT, which harm our dog's liver and kidneys, are known carcinogens. Ethoxyquin, which is used to stabilize rubber, can also be used. All of these chemicals are added to provide a longer shelf life - for months, even possibly a couple of years.
My dogs are fed Life's Abundance food, supplements and treats exclusively. I use their spa products for my dogs as well. I believe that raising puppies on this food and supplements will help ensure a long and healthy life as well as provide our puppies a healthy start.
While this dog food "seems" more expensive up front, the cost is ONLY about $.50 to $.60 a day for an 8 pound adult dog. Americans spend more than that on their designer coffee every morning!!! You feed less dog food but they receive more nutrition. They are able to digest better and utilize the dog food more. And you are ensuring a long and healthy life for your pet when you feed them quality nutrition! I start your puppy on its life's journey with the best nutrition in Life's Abundance. Isn't your precious puppy worth it to continue feeding it the best?
I am often asked, "What should I feed my puppy? What do you recommend?" I have researched dog food many times and looked at the first few ingredients, as I was told these were the most important and meat should always be the first one. The guaranteed analysis was the next important criteria. These things are important, but even more so is the quality of the ingredients.
I was so impressed by the quality and high standards of this dog food and the amazing testimonials from the customers and field representative of this company that I only recommend Life's Abundance products.
My mission at Bear Creek Maltipoo is to improve the quality of the breeds I offer to my customers. I want to offer beautiful, healthy and sweet-tempered puppies that families can enjoy for years to come.
