Wheatgrass for your Animals

Have you ever thought about giving wheatgrass to your pet?  Mine love the taste of it!  It’s great combined with E3Live’s E3 Canine fresh-frozen.  The rich chlorophyll content of both wheatgrass and E3 Canine will help freshen your pet’s breath and offer a powerful nutritional boost to their diet. Other household pets also love to nibble the grass!

Some of you may grow your own, but if not we found an amazing company that offers frozen wheatgrass – and we had to share it with you. Here is what our founders have to say about DynamicGreens:

We know from speaking with Tom Stem, the owner of DynamicGreens, that the wheatgrass is field grown and the juice is vacuum packed, flash frozen and unpasteurized. This combination is unique to DynamicGreens and we are convinced that this is why it has none of the bitterness—just a fresh delicious taste.

We really like the integrity of the people behind DynamicGreens, they are a great company with great people.  We support them in their mission and we know that this is the best wheatgrass we’ve ever had!

—Michael Saiber & Tamera Campbell, Founders and Harvesters of E3Live

Feeding your Feline

Feline nutrition is a very misunderstood topic that has led to health problems in millions of pets. Cats are obligate carnivores. Their nutritional needs are stricter than with a dog or other domestic pet. They must eat a meat based diet to not only thrive but simply stay alive. Cats have certain dietary nutritional needs that can only be met through consuming meat. Unfortunately since corn, soy and other fillers are cheaper than meat they are added into commercial cat foods to increase profit margins.  The price is our cat’s health.

Feeding a grain free kibble is a step in the right direction for improving the health of your animal. Since cats have a low thirst drive, feeding a wet food will help keep their bodies hydrated. Another option is raw feeding your cats. Like dog owners, cat owners are seeing dramatic results in raw fed pets. I know from personal experience that my barn cats are always extremely healthy. They are offered a small amount of grain free food but spend the majority of their day hunting mice and birds. Compared to my indoor kitty (who will not eat wet or raw food) they are much healthier. They are more active, their eyes are brighter and their coats shine beautifully.

There are a variety of supplements you can include in your cat’s diet. Most of them are enzymes or probiotics. While there are hundreds of products for dogs, cats seem to lack the wide variety that you see for our canine friends. If you have a multiple pet household it is also nice to find a product you can feed to different ages and types of animals.

E3 Feline is one of those products. It provides over 65 vitamins, minerals, amino acids and essential fatty acids. It provides nutrition to help with overall health and fill any missing nutrients in your pet’s diet. Adding extra nutrition can help to improve their skin and hair, provide more energy, and boost their immune system. E3 Feline is also a product that you can feed to your other pets!

Sometimes it’s a challenge getting cats to eat new additions to their diet. The easiest way to offer something new to your cat is to mix it with wet food or a favorite treat. Start off with small amounts and increase over time. Many cats actually love the flavor of E3 Feline – it tastes like eating grass. Do you have a favorite tip or trick for introducing new food to your kitty? Let us know in the comments below!

E3 Feline comes in Fresh-Frozen or convenient powder.

Winter Care For Your Outdoor Cat

While many people prefer to keep their kitties inside to live, there are plenty that live outside part or full time. Living inside is much safer and warmer for a cat but not always an option. We have one that has never stepped outside as well as a barn cat. While the barn cat isn’t as tame as our indoor one I’m still always concerned about her winter care. Here are some tips to keep in mind for the colder months.

winter cat

Shelter – An outdoor cat should have access to some type of insulated shelter. You can use a small dog house or use cardboard boxes. If you use boxes put a smaller one inside a larger one and fill the space between them with straw to help insulate. Make sure it is in a draft free and dry location. Cats get cold and need a warm place to sleep during long cold days and nights. I find that my barn cat sleeps in the stacks of hay or straw.

Water – Keeping water from freezing can be a challenge. Even in my barn the water freezes so I make sure to replace it twice a day for our kitty to drink from. Animals should not be forced to rely on eating snow for their source of water. Cats that hunt or eat food will need less water but it should always be available.

Food – Cats need extra food in the winter to help stay warm. We feed outdoor cats all year (and yes they still hunt great!) but always increase it in the winter months. A lot of small critters they eat hibernate and aren’t out for as many hunting opportunities. My barn cat earns her keep hunting and keeping mice out of my grain but I never want her to lose weight during the cold months.

Make sure they are fixed – Spaying and neutering is important! You don’t want to find a new batch of kittens in the spring (and fall) each year. Overpopulation is a huge problem so do your part. When my barn kitty came home she was completely feral. We were able to get her spayed through a TNR (trap neuter release) program for only five dollars. They notched her ears to mark that she was fixed and she’s been a happy kitty since then.

Worming – You should worm your outdoor cat twice a year at least. Heading into winter is a great time to do this. It will help them maintain weight and reduce parasite numbers where they live. You can use standard or natural wormers, the choice is yours, but it’s a critical part of your pet’s health.

Do you have any tips for taking care of your outdoor animals during the winter?

Your Obligate Carnivore

Obligate Carnivores. Do you know what that term means about your cat? It means that your cat absolutely must have meat in their diet to live a long and healthy life. We are going to explore why cats must eat meat and why a grain free diet is much healthier for them.

cute_cat_02_hq_pictures_168994

Evolution – Cats evolved as meat eaters. Since they were animals that ate only meat they lost the ability to make or use certain vitamins and minerals. Taurine is one you have likely heard of, and they are also unable to produce niacin. Arganine is another vital nutrient they get from meat. Cats aren’t able to produce vitamin A from beta-carotine like we can. Felines can’t live without these nutrients that are found in abundance in meat. That is why they are obligated to eat meat.

Digestion – Cats have evolved a digestive system that is designed to handle raw meat. Their digestive system is very short. Raw meat digests very quickly and doesn’t need to ferment like carbohydrates do. Cats do very well on grain free or raw diets for this reason. They aren’t designed to utilize grains and vegetables in their diet. They have lost the ability to digest them.

Carnivore vs. Obligate Carnivore – Many meat eating animals are classified as a carnivore, but some of them can handle and even thrive on a diet that isn’t meat based. A carnivore is an animal that eats a diet of mostly meat. They have sharp teeth and are designed to hunt other animals. An obligate carnivore is an animal that requires a diet of mostly meat. It is a necessity and is biologically necessary for survival. Bears are carnivores that have a diet containing a large amount of plants. Dogs can also to some degree digest plants and grains. Their digestive system is long enough to handle and process plants, grains and other non-meat items. Any bird of prey is an obligate carnivore. Dolphins, minks, and of course felines also fit into this category.

Nutrition – Nutrition plays a vital role in your cat’s health. Many of the food options on the market are filled with grains and other fillers that cats are unable to process or use for nutrition in their body. How do you fill the gaps in their nutrition? A raw diet is a great way to improve health. Next best would be a commercial cat food that is grain free. Cat supplements are harder to find on the market compared to dogs or other animals. Our E3 Feline has extra nutrition for your cat and provides the necessary nutrients that may be lacking in their diet. I make sure some is on my cat’s food each day!

How do you make sure your obligate carnivore is healthy?

Life Lessons From Your Cat

Not everyone is a cat person. It takes a special personality to be owned by a demanding four legged critter. They are more independent than dogs and claim everything in your home as theirs. Cats are amazing creatures though, and I’ve learned some valuable lessons from mine over the years.

Being Playful – Cats are incredibly curious and playful creatures. They will stalk and chase everything from a bug to a shadow on the wall. Laughing and having fun releases feel good endorphins to boost your mood. Join your cat for a game of chase-the-string when you come home from work. And don’t forget to find some fun activities of your own.

Showing your appreciation – Most cats are very affectionate. In return for your devoted care to them they shower you with rubs and purring. Some sit on your lap, others rub your ankles. No matter how your cat expresses it they show you appreciation for being a part of their life. Petting your cat can lower your stress and blood pressure levels, so indulge often. Also remember to take the lesson into your daily life. Don’t be too busy to appreciate what you have.

 Hey, Relax! – Cats are the masters of relaxation. A nice sunny or soft spot can give them hours of grooming and sleeping. While most of us can’t spend hours taking a nap, we can find more ways to relax. Stress isn’t good for your health and finding a hobby or taking a walk can help manage it. You may consider taking up yoga or meditation. Just keep in mind you can’t be as productive in your daily life if your stress levels are maxed out.

Stand your ground – Cats are territorial. They own their surroundings and do not like them to be changed or invaded. They also get very offended if you expect them to do something they don’t like or isn’t natural (bath anyone?). Take notes. While you can’t argue about everything in life you should always stand up for yourself and be clear with what is right and wrong for you. Don’t let people push you around to make themselves feel better.

Respect yourself – A cat spends a good portion of their time grooming themselves and seeing to their needs. In fact, many cats are simply selfish and we love them for it anyway. Just keep in mind you need to respect yourself; eat right, exercise, and make sure you are high on your own priority list. Being happy in life is priceless and respecting yourself is the key to that. When you respect yourself other people will notice and respect you in return.

What lessons have you learned from your feline friend?
