Eliminate the bone
The bone: why bones are not good for dogs?
Please note, to all those who have recently started following me, bone is the most toxic food for our pets.
Obviously, the bone as such is not toxic, but it is the presence of various chemical and pharmacological residues inside of it, which make it so. I’m sure you will have all noticed that when your dog eats bones too often, one or more of the following annoying symptoms will appear almost immediately: itching on the neck area or on the lower back, dandruff, craving for grass, flatulence, diarrhea, fasting and vomiting, watery eyes, licking of paws, head shaking. Oxytetracycline is the residual drug which is the direct cause of one or more of these symptoms.
The bone: FORZA10 research and studies
In this regard, we have many research published in international journals*, which can be found on Forza10 website. If you are lucky enough to know someone who breeds animals for meat in the “ancient” way, you will notice that the bone of these animals does not cause any of these symptoms. It can result in the classic “mechanical problems”, such as constipation, bowel obstruction or even intestinal perforation, but not the other symptoms described above, all toxic in nature.
So, the bone is a good biological indicator and tells us if the meat which we eat is healthy or not. Take note of it, it’s hard to make a mistake!
