Could Your Pet Have a Thiamine Deficiency?

Could Your Pet Have a Thiamine Deficiency?
What is Thiamine?
 
Thiamine is the vitamin known as B1. It is important for nervous system development and function, reproductive health and proper digestion. The main source of thiamine in the raw diet is muscle meat. 
 
If your pet eats a variety of different raw meats, there is plenty of thiamine to support the canine and feline bodies. If, however, your pet is eating mainly fish, he/she may be deficient in this important vitamin. They can also be deficient if they eat a large amount of canned food due to the way this type of food is processed but dry processed foods can carry the same risks. Animals that have weakened digestive/absorption abilities may also be thiamine deficient.

The Importance of Including Organ Meats to the Raw Diet

The Importance of Including Organ Meats to the Raw Diet

Organ meats? Gross, right? Well, even though they may seem gross to most of us, organ meats are an extremely important component of a carnivore’s diet. They contain an array of important trace minerals, vitamins and amino acids that are essential for helping your pet stay healthy and vital.

Dogs: Approximately 10% of the dog’s diet should consist of organ meat.

Cats: Cats require 15-20% of the total diet to consist of organ meat, mainly liver and heart. Heart meat is a great source of taurine for cats and is essential to them since they cannot synthesize it from precursor substances.

Menu items from 3P Naturals include: Heart & liver from beef, buffalo, lamb, chicken, turkey, duck and more

Just by adding organ meats to the diet, you will be providing the following important nutrients.

Preventing Fleas, Naturally

Preventing Fleas, Naturally

An issue that pops up this time of year is fleas! Many of us have chosen to feed raw because we don't want to add to the environmental stresses that today's domestic pets are exposed to. Most of us would rather avoid using chemicals to get rid of fleas if we can. Healthy skin is a major factor in keeping fleas at bay. A correctly fed raw diet is a great start to flea prevention along with nutritional supplementation and a natural flea spray that contains essential oils that deter pests*. If your pet does have fleas, you will need to treat your pet and your house too. If the flea infestation is bad enough, you may have to go the chemical route but working towards prevention is key! A natural solution for your house other than chemical flea powders is to use diatomaceous earth in all corners, furniture and on any carpet you may have. Ask your natural pet food store if they carry this product. These options might not always solve a flea issue but they are a great way to prevent flea problems from arising.

*3P will have a great locally-made, chemical free flea spray available for purchase from Equus Soap Co. at the 3P Naturals booth at the BC/Yukon Regional Agility Championships June 5-7 at Thunderbird Showpark.
