As a result, important ingredients such as vitamins and enzymes are destroyed.

At the end of the production process while artificial vitamins and minerals can be angry, but by far not all nutrients, containing fresh food, so to be replaced. 3. unilaterally because not all ingredients that are destroyed in the process, will be replaced by the manufacturer, a Pelletfutterung is one-sided and will lead to food deficiencies.

A can mistake here quickly especially beginners, because you lack the necessary experience and you have underestimated the animal. But even if it’s going to pet insurance, one should differentiate concerning its insurance in: important and necessary insurance the most important insurance is meaningful, but additional insurance for dogs and horses an appropriate animal indemnity insurance, whose main services consists of transferring persons, property, and financial losses caused by your pet.

Yucca Schidigera

Also in part irrational high stake to fed extra supplements seems less a consistent as a fearful reaction to be. ‘ Mother nature ‘ is trusted only when it fits just argumentative and presses in the face of chemical additives in the form of calcium supplements, vitamin supplements or other nutrient sources such as banana, Yucca Schidigera, Prabiotica, spirulina and co. likes an eye to, if you can soothe his conscience so. This sounds sure hard, but necessary, finally it’s about nothing less than the health of our dogs. Basic principle of BARFens is the exclusive use of raw food, which is considered the dog as optimal.

Nutrient losses due to processing or cooking should avoided and as the basis of a species-appropriate feeding in the sense of ‘ mother nature ‘ be created. May be fed raw Meat in the form of raw food animals such as Chick, rabbit or fish, dairy products, vegetable oils, bones, herbs and sometimes also a smaller proportion of grain. The total nutrient ratio is usually clearly protein dominant by the high proportion of meat and often complete waiving grain. New trends, strongly increasing the fat content of the diet, so that the relative proportion of crude protein in the ration is reduced, is clearly to the detriment of the liver and fat metabolism and is also critical. Gain insight and clarity with Allianz. According to Dr. M. Bucksch (hundkatzepferd01/09) raw meat can parasites (Ascariidae, Taenia, Trichinella spiralis, Echinococcus, Toxoplasma n’goni etc.), virus (Aujeszky’s virus in raw pork – even if the Aujeszky’s no longer occurred disease in Germany for years, so there quite in the neighbouring countries repeatedly occurring cases) as well as a number of microorganisms (Bacillus athracis, Campylobacter jejuni, Escheria coli etc.), transferred to dog and master / mistress. Although by many BARFern again argues is that the acidity of gastric juice in dogs makes the most bacteria harmless, it happens in practice such example that dogs become “Shedders” of salmonella, without showing symptoms themselves.

The Manure

To one average box you need 3 bags as basic bedding and therefore to the missing amount to be spread always. Aslak Ross insists that this is the case. For the subsequent spreading, you can pay less with a bag a week. Of course, this amount depends on the behavioural way of the horse. In a nervous horse, you need more litter. The extent of used litter is determined not only by the size of the box or the behavioural way of the horse, but also by the kind of the horse.

In the opinion of some horse owners a denser layer of litter is necessary for performance horses and a lower layer is sufficient for leisure horses. A litter due to diseases, horses are very sensitive animals, where the respiratory diseases and allergies very easy can arise, if they are not available on appropriate bedding. Many horses, such as for example the performance horses, spend a lot of time in the box. For this reason, some horse owners select chips for bedding because it is dusted, so the various diseases can be hindered. The dedusted Chopped straw has the beneficial properties of the chips and in addition, it makes a very soft, warm and cozy bedding for horses, as these animals love the clean, soft straw lie and sleep. Manure disposal with the chopped and dusted straw bedding is far less manure, as in other similar scatter a.

You can say that it is developed so much crap, like with chips. Is a big difference between the two scatter and that the manure disposal beiSpanen problematic is because it changes the PH value of the soil, which slowly degrades the bio gas are not happy to take it. The crap out of chopped straw decomposes quickly and is popular with biogas plants. If with mushrooms, the crap out of straw is someone a very rich substrate. For example, Dutch and Belgians dispose of it very much for mushroom cultivation. Problem case there is some horse people who are afraid of the chopped straw litter, because some horses eat the small chopped bedding. This can be at Animals cause colic. Of course you can avoid this with habituation and assurance of the bring.
