VitaLife – Made with love dog treats. Yes, they really are!

Josh Billings rightly pointed out, “A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself”.

The above quote has the essence of why we love our dogs so much. I am sure you would agree.

Yes, it reveals the care, love and faithfulness that a dog delivers to its owners. But still, it’s definitely not all. Several researchers have found that dog owners are happier, healthier, have good heart health, exercise more, and are better personalities in comparison with others who don’t.

Wonderful are the benefits of rearing a dog, aren’t they?

Dogs adjust swiftly in any situation and win hearts of the family members instantly. It promises to human to be a loyal friend and shares emotion of life.

And owners pat on fur to reciprocate the welcome given after returning from work or anywhere. Dogs are not merely pets, their playful nature will keep you amused and happier during outing with running, hopping,  playing with toys, or at any other occasion when you spend time with it.

But, problems arise in preserving animal fats as it gets spoiled due to rancidity in a short time. To increase shelf life, special preservatives are used in foods.

Practically, two types of preservatives are used in dog’s foods, namely - natural and artificial. The natural preservatives are derived from Vitamin C and E and considered safe by pet nutrition experts. Food containing natural preservative usually consists of ingredients like ascorbate and tocopherol. But, artificial preservatives used in preserving foods are potentially harmful chemicals that contain carcinogens or cancer causing agents.

Ethoxyquin- It is an artificial preservative and creates toxicity in body after long use. This is also used as a pesticide and hardening agent in manufacturing synthetic rubber.

BHA and BHT – Both butylated hydroxyanisol (BHA) and butylated hyrdoxytoluene (BHT) are under suspicion of causing cancers by W.H.O and State of California. Studies have found that BHA to be a possible carcinogen. Unfortunately, these two chemicals are still found in many food products of dogs.

Propylene Glycol – It is a controversial additive used to preserve moisture content in commercial dog’s food. It is being used as new automotive antifreeze and causes blood diseases, though considered safer than ethylene glycol, if given in small doses and infrequently to dogs.

TBHQ – Tertiary butyl hydroquinone is used as artificial fats preservative in many commercialized dog’s food to increase its shelf life. But it is often used to stabilize explosive compounds and make varnishes, lacquers and resins. Worst thing is that TBHQ has linkage to pre-cancerous stomach tumor and other cancers.

Propyl Gallate – Propyl Gallate is believed to be responsible for numerous health issues of the dogs, but still used in numerous foods. Recent studies show that this chemical can mimic the negative effects of female hormone estrogen. It adversely affects the reproductive health of dogs and found linkage in causing cancers.

Corn syrup/corn – Corn syrup mainly consists of sugar and is used to sweeten the palate of dog’ food. Frequently serving corn syrup to dogs may lead to weight gain, hyperactivity, diabetes, and dramatic change in behaviors. As it is inexpensive filler for the pet food manufactures, it is being used by several brands. But, it develops molds and fungus very early which if eaten by pets can lead to their death. Hence, make you are checking the label properly for it.

By-Products – By-Products are the internal organs of different animals like lamb, chicken, beef, fish, turkey, etc. It often contains diseased tissues, organs, and tumors in order to fill up packet in low quality products.

Apart from harmful chemicals, there are some flavoring agents, sweetners, etc that need to be avoided if it is used in unnecessarily and excess amount to fill up packet. In many cheap products, too much salt is added that create adverse effect for your dogs after prolong use.

About this blog post

This blog post is from a pet lover who owns two lovely dogs a cute cat. I tested several products for my pets from several brands online and offline over the years, but VitaLife has made me stick to it for over a year now.

The reason why I have written this blog is merely appreciation. Yes, VitaLife has saved my pets, their treats are simply awesome are enjoyed a lot by my pets who simply avoided packaged foods for several months for unkown reasons. I was worried about my pets and confused about what to do. Then, I found VitaLife. I was skeptic about this brand after I read a blog somewhere online. But, thanks to my friend who advised  and recommended Vitalife to me, I owe a lot to this brand because it’s the reason behind my healthier and happier pets. I had to pay it back. How? Having found no great way to do it, I thought of writing this blog.

Thank You VitaLife, you are really made with love.

All you lovely pet owners, hope you enjoyed my post. If you have questions for me, please feel free to post it below. I will be happy to answer them for you.
