How many of you tell your pets everything?
Apparently just vocalising your stresses immediately calms you, even if you talk to yourself. It is only natural that we communicate with our pet everyday, and even more so during this unprecedented and stressful time in our lives during lockdown. Some families talk to each other through their pets – it settles any personal issues we may have living with the same people everyday where tensions may be running high.
It also may allow some family members to at least communicate with someone in the family (their beloved dog) if they have become withdrawn and depressed. Our dogs are natural empaths.
Dogs and cats (and in some cases house rabbits) have become our main confidantes as they are our new routine during these challenging times. We tell them everything about our thoughts. We confide in them about important issues, we share in any tragedies or any joys in our lives and they respond to all our different voices as they understand us and sponge all our feelings.
They also share in all our daily secrets – flopping on the sofa in our baggy old clothes and eating our third cheese toastie of the day – such a confidante deserves to be rewarded and share in our routine. A few crisps after we’ve had our main meal won’t harm them – or will it? How about those digestive biscuits we settle down to with our cup of tea – surely a few of those shouldn’t be too harmful (we know not to give the chocolate ones to our dogs).
What about the pizza crusts and cheese toast ends – after all our pets hold all our secrets and deserve to share in our lives fully, so surely giving them everything we eat and indulge in daily is normal?
We all do it as we love our pets unconditionally and this desire drives us to treat them constantly!
We challenge you to break these behaviours and share only the healthy treats with your pets as the risks are unimaginable. You’d be surprised at how these delicious nutrient-dense treats that we recommend offer so much more to your pets as they are packed full of gut-protective natural prebiotics and fibre, and you will begin to see changes within a few weeks in your pet’s coat and energy levels and you will visibly notice the weight falling off – don’t they deserve that and more?
