It’s a Lifestyle and a choice. What if they could Speak for themselves?
Pet Parents are learning more than ever what is best for their family member. Canine Caviar initially addressed Holistic because it is the best way to provide what they need. We were ahead of our time when Canine Caviar Pet Foods were introduced. More than a decade later it is a common word used to declare BEST for your pet. We are still the Only True Holistic Pet foods available.
A Holistic approach treats the whole animal, using nutrition and herbs to stimulate the body’s ability to heal itself; using all natural, non-GMO ingredients that serve a beneficial purpose to the animal and not the consumer looking at the bag. For example, fruits or vegetables in a bag of food look good, but 80% of the vitamins and minerals are lost through the cooking process and therefore do not serve a beneficial purpose to the pet, since you are basically left with fiber and sugar.
It is true that there are no accepted standard definitions for holistic.
Holistic is more of an approach to life. This ancient approach to health considers the whole animal and how it interacts with the environment. The goal is to achieve maximum well-being, where everything is functioning at its best.
Holistic Health is based on the law of nature that a whole is made up of interdependent parts. When one part is not working at its best, it influences all of the other parts of that animal. Furthermore, this animal, including all of the parts, is constantly interacting with everything in the surrounding environment. For example, when the pet is anxious about its owner leaving, their nervousness may result in a physical reaction–such as an upset stomach and loose stools.
Holistic Health is an ongoing process. The cells in a pet’s body are constantly being replaced. New cells are built from what is available. Harmful substances or lack of needed building blocks in the body can result in imperfect cells, unable to do what is required to keep that animal healthy. Similarly, on the non-physical level, animal’s mental attitudes are a result of what they see and hear.
When disease and chronic conditions do occur, the Holistic Health principles can also be applied. The term is usually changed to holistic medicine, and additional factors are added. A holistic approach to healing goes beyond just eliminating symptoms. For example, giving your pet a shot for dry skin and itchiness would be like disconnecting the oil light on the dash of a car when it flashes. The irritation is eliminated, but the real problem still exists. In a holistic approach, a symptom is considered a message that something needs attention. So, the symptom is used as a guide to look below the surface for the root cause. Holistic Health supports reaching higher levels of wellness as well as preventing illness.
