Firefighters are confronted every day by the possibility of dealing with injury and death. But most of us are unfamiliar with the heart-wrenching stories of rescue personnel who try vainly to resuscitate dogs and cats.

In many cases, the only occupants present when house fires break out are companion animals. And without equipment specific to dogs, cats and other pets, it is very difficult to revive them when they are overwhelmed by smoke inhalation (the leading cause of these pet deaths is asphyxiation). Every year, an estimated 40,000 companion animals die in house fires – that’s ten times the number of humans that perish. Thankfully, now there is an organization working to reduce this shocking number of unfortunate deaths.

The non-profit group H.E.L.P. Animals, Inc. is devoted to the distribution of cup-shaped oxygen masks to fire departments in order to save the lives of pets. The oxygen masks are versatile enough that they can be used on most companion animals, including cats, dogs, reptiles and birds. Thus far, they have distributed nearly 3,000 masks throughout North America.

If you’d like to contribute to this incredible cause, visit the H.E.L.P. Animals website at www.helpanimalsinc.org, and learn how you can outfit your local fire department for a minimal fee.

We love our companion animals. For many of us, they are our family, and we cannot imagine life without them. We expend a lot of energy and effort to ensure their happiness and wellbeing. And when we’re confronted with signs of ill-health, it’s upsetting and confusing, especially when we can’t locate an appropriate solution. Even if you’ve not yet dealt with similar situations, chances are that you know someone who has.

Unfortunately, it’s often difficult to pinpoint the stressors on the body that can prevent your dog or cat from enjoying optimal health. And unless you have visited a veterinarian concerned about nutrition, you may not have considered the importance of your companion animal’s diet.

In almost all cases, your dog or cat eats the same food every day. As a consequence, the food that you provide is his or her main source of nutrition. Nutrition is vital to a long and healthy life, which is why the brand of food that you give your dog or cat is such an important choice. It’s a decision that should not be made lightly, based simply upon clever packaging or the “fun” appearance of kibbles, which may be loaded with artificial colors.

While many of us assume that most pet food manufacturers have the best interests of pets in mind when creating their products, you should know that current regulations allow them to use ingredients that you would never knowingly feed your pet. In fact, you may be appalled to learn what some brands of pet food really contain. Many of the pet foods on the market today include some or all of the following ingredients:

• Poultry and meat by-products including bones, intestines, feet, heads, lungs, spleens, stomachs, etc. These by-products can be difficult to digest and we consider them to be inferior sources of protein.
• Excessive reliance on grains like soy, corn and wheat gluten (i.e., more than two in the top five ingredients). These grains are inferior protein sources that can be difficult to digest, irritate the G.I. tract and may even carry dangerous molds.
• Chemical preservatives like BHA, BHT, Ethoxoquin and others. These substances have shown to be harmful to animals, especially when ingested on a daily basis over long periods of time.
• Artificial colors and flavors which, just like chemical preservatives, have been linked to numerous health problems. Many foods that position themselves as healthy feature colorful kibbles, which often contain artificial colors. While some foods may be shaped and colored like fruits and vegetables, do not be swayed by this tactic.

All of these ingredients may put unnecessary stress on your pet’s system.

The more you do now to bolster the health of your pet, the more likely your pet will be able to enjoy a happy and healthy life. The single best thing you can do for your dog or cat is to feed the healthiest diet possible.

Life’s Abundance Premium Health Foods for Dogs and Cats are nutrient dense and contain premium selections of the freshest possible ingredients. We use high-quality meat proteins, rather than by-products, corn, wheat, gluten or soy. You can be confident that you are providing your companion animal with the healthiest possible diets, because our products are completely free from chemical preservatives, sugars, artificial flavors and colors.

The Life’s Abundance diets are formulated to be highly digestible, so that the nutrients are more easily absorbed, and therefore convey more positive benefits. Our premium foods contain a superior blend of proteins, vitamins, proteinated minerals, antioxidants, fruits, vegetables, healthy grasses as well as healthy bacteria cultures known to significantly improve the overall health of pets.

Additionally, the select quality ingredients in Life’s Abundance are cooked in small batches using an exclusive “fast-cook” process to gently lock in the natural goodness and fresh tastes of real food. And at HealthyPetNet, we maintain strict inventory and use climate-controlled warehouses to ensure the freshness of our products. After all, what is the sense of using the best possible ingredients if the food is stored in warehouses for months on end? When you feed your cat or dog Life’s Abundance Premium Health Food, you’re providing the complete nutrition that your pets need, and the tastes they crave.
