"it's new, it's different"
a raw beef
product put out by solid gold health products for pets
, catering to that percentile of dog and cat owners
who like to feed raw meat
according to the ad, the whole raw meat craze
is based on the idea that, when digesting uncooked meat
, the stomach must put out "four times the amount of digestive enzymes
." this apparently keeps stomach muscles strong. i know how much i worry about the state of my cat's stomach muscles
. but anyway.
i'm sure there are many reasons not to consume raw meat, but solid gold
only offers one: flukes
may be present in the food. these little buggers "may bore through the wall of the intestines, contribute to leaky gut syndrome
, or cause irritable bowel syndrome
solid gold has supposedly gotten around this little problem by freeze-drying
the beef to remove the water, thus killing the flukes. hopefully this also gets rid of the various bacteria
that may still be skulk
ing around, but solid gold wisely does not get into that argument. buckaroo
beef is best shredded and mixed in with dry food
, although you can rehydrate it and return it to its former "fresh meat
what a certain pet food company is saying about buckaroo beef:
hell, i just like the name.
