Raw Meats, Bones and
No Corn – Ted named his new pup Pukka, which in Hindi means
"genuine" or "first-class." Having read in the scientific
literature that grains like corn and rice raise dog's blood glucose levels, and
that animals who keep their blood glucose levels low suffer fewer chronic
diseases and live longer, Ted decided to feed Pukka an ancestral canine diet --
meat, innards, bones, and green-leafy and yellow orange vegetables, both of
which have been shown to reduce cancer rates in dogs and humans. The good news
is that many pet food manufacturers now offer this kind of diet in a variety of
forms -- frozen raw food, dry raw food, and kibble -- which can be bought in
pet food stores and online. Such diets have the potential to improve the life
spans of our dogs, and in the short term, they immediately lead to shinier
coats, smaller stools, and less gas.
