FEBRUARY IS DOGGY DENTAL MONTH
Did you know 80% of all dogs will develop some form of dental disease by the age of three? Dental disease is the #1 illness in pets. The cause is plaque buildup on the teeth and bacteria below the gum line. It causes gum disease, cavities, and tooth loss. More serious problems can occur such as bladder infections and kidney disease. Plaque absorbed in the blood can clog arteries leading to heart failure. The fact is dental disease can shorten a dog’s life by as much as seven years.
But now there is “TEEF”. A human grade prebiotic powder you add to your dogs water that safely and naturally targets the root cause of dental disease. TEEF not only eliminates bacteria between teeth and below the gum line that causes periodontal diseases, but fights the plaque that can be absorbed into the blood stream causing serious pet health issues. TEEF is the only product available that safely and effectively improves bad breath, gum health, and tooth whiteness.
TEEF was created by microbiologist Dr. Emily Stein after her rescued dog needed 21 teeth removed and suffered from health issues related to dental disease. Protektin 42 is a patented prebiotic formula. It was designed and named with the ultimate goal of keeping all 42 teeth in your dog’s mouth.
Arnie’s Pet Food Store recommends regular dental check-ups as part of your pet’s health care routine along with using TEEF for daily dental pet maintenance. TEEF is available exclusively at Arnie’s Pet Food Store in the Alamo Plaza at 56th & Hwy 2 where we care as much about your pet as we do our own.
Arnie's Pet Foods believes a happy healthy pet starts with good nutrition. This is why we select award winning 5 STAR rated dog foods produced by family owned and operated pet food facilities where production is never outsourced.
Top national brands are often products of multi-faceted corporations with a pet food division that outsources the manufacturing of their pet foods. These corporations spend millions of dollars on highly visible marketing with a convincing message about the superiority of their pet food lines where profits are often put ahead of good pet nutrition.
At Arnie's Pet Foods our goal is to provide the highest quality all natural biologically appropriate pet foods that are produced in a family owned and operated facility, never outsourced, and provide the proper nutrition for a happy healthy pet.
WHAT A DOG NEEDS
Let’s face it! Modern dogs over thousands of years have developed the ability to survive on a diverse diet. The first dogs shared food stuffs with humans. Today many continue that tradition by offering their dogs table scraps and leftovers.
The diversity of foods offered to modern day dogs have helped to develop todays thriving pet food industry where hundreds upon hundreds of dog food formulas based on the idea that a dog will eat about everything have been developed. Although most of the dog foods on the market will sustain a dog, is it the balanced nutritional diet that a dog needs to not just survive, but to thrive?
Dogs have evolved from wolves, a meat-eating animal. Today’s dogs still have the teeth, digestive system, and nutritional requirements as their carnivore predecessors. So an ideal dog food similar to their ancestral diet, that of wolves, would appear to be the best diet for a dog.
The ancestral diet for a dog is 50 – 55% protein, 25 – 30% fat, and 15% carbohydrates. However since a dog has developed the ability to eat about anything, many pet foods are produced using meat by-products and inexpensive fillers such as corn, wheat, and sorghum. They may contain less than 30% protein, 20% fat, but are high in unnecessary carbohydrates, as much as 45 to 7 percent. High carbs can lead to an over-weight pet and cause diabetes as well as other health issues.
Dog foods sold at Arnie’s Pet Food Store meet the high demands of nutrition that your dog needs. All meat sources are listed, there are no fillers, dyes, by-products or food additives, and meet or exceed the highest standards of the American Association of Pet Foods.
