“You are what you eat” also applies to your pet

Thursday, November 3rd, 2011

We stock a lot of premium, high quality brands of pet food and one of the most popular is Holistic Select. Unfortunately, supply issues in Australia have affected this brand over the past twelve months and a lot of their loyal customers have found alternatives.

But that’s all about to change. A new Australian distributor has been appointed and they (and Holistic Select’s American parent company) assure us that they are committed to constant supply and re-establishing the brand’s Australian popularity. To help them along, we thought we’d put the spotlight on this brand and tell you why you should consider it for Fido or Kitty!

(Buy Holistic Select from Pookinuk this week* and you won’t pay for shipping (metro areas only) PLUS you’ll receive a FREE bag of all-natural dog treats worth $19.95).

Holistic Select takes the “you are what you eat” philosophy and applies it wholeheartedly to their pet foods. The label you see featured below illustrates just how serious they are about the ingredients in their pet foods. They only include high quality real ingredients, not fillers, to provide an holistic, natural and balanced diet for your pet.

At the crux of their philosophy is the digestive health of your pet. When the digestive system isn’t working properly, toxins that should be excreted instead travel into the blood stream and throughout the body. The Vets and nutritionists at Holistic Select have therefore formulated their recipes to encourage a healthy gut. High quality meat meals (proteins) are the basis of all their recipes.

Contained in all their recipes are:-

  • high quality, concentrated meat meals (protein) – some recipes contain a single protein source while others contain multiple proteins
  • whole grains as carbohydrates
  • fruit & vegetables
  • natural fibre (oatmeal, flaxseed or beet pulp)
  • probiotics – the “good bacteria”
  • prebiotics
  • digestive enzymes
  • phytonutrients that act as antioxidants

For a detailed explanation of the Holistic Select philosophy, click here to go to their Blog or their American website. There’s also plenty of customer testimonials to read also – click here.

Holistic Select is produced in North America by WellPet, a small pet-loving family company – click here to find out more about them.

Why raw food for dogs & cats?

Monday, April 12th, 2010
Because, according to various vets, our lovable four legged best friends are not designed or equipped to properly digest and absorb cooked food, as we humans are. 
They have been evolving on this planet for 40 million years eating fresh food.  Their mouths, teeth, stomach, intestines, organs and enzymes, are all evolved to masticate, process, digest and absorb raw food, not cooked food.
It’s an interesting school of thought. And perhaps the increase of raw pet food products on the market is a sign that dog & cat owners are embracing this school of thought! 
Here at Pookinuk, we’re seeing more and more options available that are raw and 100% natural as well as being preservative & additive free. Various studies suggest that it’s the preservatives & additives that are the cause of many allergies so offering a diet to your pet that is entirely natural could mean the end of those nasty allergies.
Furthermore, vet expert Dr Bruce Syme tells us that there’s a growing stockpile of scientific evidence that links the long term consumption of cooked commercial pet foods to the development of a vast array of common illnesses and degenerative diseases, including cancer.  
And a poor, unbalanced diet can lead to skin disease and dermatitis, allergies, teeth and gum disease, arthritis, renal failure, ear infections, obesity and other problems. That just means a poorer quality of life for both pet and owner!
It’s definitely worth thinking about. If your pet suffers from allergies or other ailments, perhaps a raw diet is worth considering.
Pookinuk stocks a few raw diet products – - Dr Bruce’s VETS ALL NATURAL (for dogs & cats) as well as a new freeze dried product from New Zealand called K9 NATURAL (dogs only).  For more info on these products, see our other Blog entitled ‘Raw Food Options’.
