National Cook For Your Pets Day falls on November 1 and encourages cooking something for the pet companion in your life.
You love your pet. And you want to provide what is best for them. National Day Calendar’s website says why not try to make them healthy, home-cooked food? No matter what kind of pet you have – dog, cat, lizard, mouse, get cooking.
“A lot of people these days are concerned about the food they eat and where that food, or the ingredients, come from. Most of our food supply today is processed and loaded with fillers,” reads the site. “The same applies to our pet food. Animals need to eat a natural diet to be at optimal health, and most of the pet food you buy has a lot of unnatural things in it. If you cook or make your own pet food at home, you are in control.”
Start by talking to your vet first.
“Veterinarians will know just what your pet’s nutrition needs are. Additionally, they will have ample advice that can be tailored for you and your furry loved one. Next, do some research. Some foods should be avoided since they could be detrimental to your pet’s health,” says the site.
Types of foods that are commonly toxic to pets include chocolate, onions, avocados, garlic, salt, yeast dough, tomato leaves and stems, and milk-based foods. It is best to steer clear of those options during National Cook For Your Pets Day.
Now you need to decide what will be on your pet’s menu. For this you can use the internet to find recipes and different ideas.
And last, but not least, enjoy yourself in this culinary adventure. Our pets do a lot for us. They give us unconditional love, so celebrate National Cook For Your Pets Day by giving them that kind of love back in a delicious, nutritious home-cooked meal.
