Who Gives a Hoot?

During the month of June and part of July I was blessed to have two small desert owls living in a space I pass by on my morning walk/run with my Carolina Dog, Schatzie. I knew there were owls in the holes in the mesa cliffs but I had never had the privilege of seeing one up close before. During this short six week period, I passed by these two owls – well mostly the male was present as I am certain the female was attending to her offspring. Either he or both he and his mate would be roosting in some sagebrush that was high up enough I couldn’t reach them of course, but close enough that I could see them clearly and even stand and just gaze at them. Sometimes I would just stop briefly to say hello in a soft voice and admire their beauty. Why am I sharing this here? Because I want to know who gives a hoot about the environment, knowing that generations down the line our children’s children will still have opportunities like this one?

When heat destroys (“denatures”) the natural shape of enzymes, they become nonfunctional. When we feed heat-processed pet food to our dogs and cats (carnivores)  necessary enzymes are absent; the burden on the pancreas is greatly increased.

According to Gabriel Cousins, MD in his book “Conscious Eating”:

Enzyme Robbing in Carnivores

Carnivore Class1

By Dr. Jeannie Thomason co-founder of the American Council of Animal Naturopathy

A little more on enzymes:

When enzymes for the digestive process are not available in the food eaten, metabolic enzymes are produced in the major organs (liver, pancreas, etc.) and then “stolen or robbed” to be used to aid in digesting the meal.   This is called enzyme robbing.

Dogs and cats, being carnivores, do not have naturally occurring enzymes in their saliva to begin the digestion process in the mouth like omnivores or herbivores do.

Our Pets Are What They Eat

You have heard it before ” You are what you eat!”  This applies to our companion animals just as much as it does to us humans.

Nutrients from the foods we eat or that we offer our pets to eat need to provide the foundation of the structure, function, and integrity of every cell in the body, from the skin and hair to muscles, bones, digestive and immune systems, etc.
