Pet Nutrition: Guest Post by Spark

Our Pets are Members of our Family…and They Need Complete Nutrition

We love them, but we can’t always tell how they are feeling. Our dog or cat may be lacking in energy, their bones or joints may hurt, or they could have a belly ache due to poor digestion. They aren’t able to tell us what they are thinking or feeling, or if their bodies are lacking the nutrients they need to stay healthy.
Our pets rely on us to provide them with what they need, but unfortunately most pet foods are highly processed and lack vital nutrients our pets need to thrive.  And research has shown the following 8 major groups of nutrients are important.

1.  Enzymes

Destroyed in the high heat manufacturing process of traditional pet food. Enzymes drive nearly every chemical and metabolic pathway in the body. Supports the absorption of vitamins and minerals.

2.  Vitamin D

Important for bone mineralization and integrity. Regulates blood levels

of calcium and phosphorus.

Helps support the immune system and joint health.

3.  Synbiotics

Probiotics & prebiotics “good bacteria” supports the living microbiome, the garden of beneficial bacteria in the digestive system. Supports proper digestion and the assimilation of nutrients.

4.  Aquatic SuperFoods

Algae provide the body with vitamins B, C, E, beta-carotene, magnesium, iron, trace miner­als and protein. Supports normal immunity, intestinal health and helps maintain strong bones and muscles.

5.  Fruit & Vegetable SuperFoods

Blueberries, spinach and broccoli work as powerful antioxidants. Supports the body to fight free radicals.

6.  Amino Acids

The body’s building blocks, approximately 20% cannot be produced by the body and must come from food. Critical to maintaining good health right down to the cellular level, while supporting healthy protein levels.

7.  Sea Vegetables

Provide trace minerals like calcium, iron, and iodine. Maintains strong bones and supports healthy thyroid and hormone levels.

8.  Juvenile Greens

Contains Vitamin E, phosphorus, magnesium, iron & potassium as well as protein and carotenoids. Helps maintain a healthy immune system and supports normal shedding.

That’s where a daily product like Spark comes in.  Spark is a comprehensive, natural, whole food supplement that was formulated by a leading veterinarian and is sprinkled on your pet’s food.  Spark contains 50 ingredients covering all 8 nutritional groups so you’ll see the Spark’s difference in your pet.

Buckets of food: GATOR!

I haven’t been posting about Kekoa’s culinary adventures every day, but trust me, she has turned into a regular Anthony Bourdain. When I first said I was doing this Foodie Bucket List for her, my good friend Annette at Biscuits by Lambchop decided to do something very special for us, and I wanted to share it with you all:

It really meant a lot to both of us that you did that. Thank you Annette. :D And they smelled really good, too.

Dog-Loving Author Lisa Gardner

I’ve always enjoyed Lisa Gardner’s books for the tightly-written suspense, but now I love her even more after reading the Author’s Notes in “Catch Me”. A quote: Speaking of love, this book is also dedicated to the real Tulip. Adopted by her devoted family from an animal shelter sixteen years ago, Tulip has lived a [...]

Worst Owner Ever Attempts to Euthanize His “Gay” Dog

Have you seen the news? It’s a tale beyond belief: A Tennessee dog owner surrendered his dog — a Pit Bull-Bulldog mix — to the Jackson Rabies Control Animal Shelter, to be killed. What was the dog’s crime? The owner saw the dog mounting another male dog. To the owner, this meant his dog is gay, and in that small, broken brain of his, that meant the dog had to be killed.

What a world.

Luckily, word of this travesty erupted into the Internet, because it had to. Someone who keeps tabs on the dogs being euthanized at the Jackson Rabies Control Animal Shelter — a high-kill shelter — made it so, when he wrote up the circumstances on his Facebook page, Jackson TN Euthanasia:

This guy [the dog] was signed over to [Rabies Control], not [because] he’s mean or [because] he tears things up, but because … his owner says he’s gay! He hunched another male dog so his owner threw him away [because] he refuses to have a “gay” dog! Even if that weren’t the most asinine thing I’ve ever heard, it’s still discrimination! Don’t let this gorgeous dog die [because] his owner is ignorant of normal dog behavior! He’s in kennel 10L and he WILL be put down tomorrow [because] there is no room at the inn!

Naturally, this thing took off. Adoption offers poured in. According to a shelter worker who prefers to be unnamed, “I have had about 10 million calls this morning. It has been adopted already. It is gone. He’s in good hands.”

Whose hands? Stephanie Fryns, a veterinary tech from Jackson, who adopted the dog and named him Elton John. Elton John is going to a good home; Fryns already has four happy dogs.

She told ABC News that the dog “was pretty friendly so far. He’s pretty scared of everything, which is understandable. But he loved the car ride.”

As for the stupidity of the former owner, let's return to that for a sec. Animal expert Stanley Coren told the Daily News, “A male mounting another male is thus not displaying homosexual tendencies, but is simply saying, ‘I'm boss around here.’” 

Or, as that unnamed shelter worker put it, “You know, those dogs get on top of each other sometimes.”

You don't say. 

As for all those people who wanted to adopt the poor dog, well, there's no shortage of dogs facing death at the Jackson Rabies Control Animal Shelter. Just check the Facebook page of the guy who broke the story. He calls himself Jackson Madison Rabies Control Stalker, and his page is full of photos of dogs who are to be put to death within days. They deserve as much attention as Elton John.
