Holistic Food for Cats & Dogs
We are very proud to be your source for all healthy supplies for dogs and cats. In a very short period of time, Le Pitou became Queens' favorite holistic and healthy pet food store. Just stop in and see why.
All our products are chosen for their holistic approach to pet health – natural dog and cat food, treats, raw and organic food, vitamins, flea control, supplements, medicine, herbal remedies and shampoos.
At Le Pitou, we believe that or pets should be treated with the same respect for natural living that we give ourselves. A holistic approach to health care for dogs and cats is important for them, to live a healthy and happy life and for us to get the most out of their company.
Nutrition is the foundation of good health for people and the same is true for our four legged companions. Diet is the most important component of your pet's health care. The best diet for your cat or dog is not at all different from the best diet for you. It consists of a variety of whole foods, and when necessary is enhanced with vitamins, minerals, enzymes and supplements to promote optional health, and prevent diseases like cancer.
What exactly is a holistic diet?
The holistic approach to diet is one that treats the whole animal, using nutrition to stimulate the body's ability to heal and maintain itself. Holistic health is an ongoing process. The cells in an animal's body are constantly being replaced and newer cells are built. Harmful substances or lack of needed building blocks in the body can result in imperfect cells and inability to do what is required to keep an animal healthy.
A holistic pet food is one that supports your pet's health on all levels by using high quality ingredients and proper formulation to insure that optimal amounts of nutrition are being achieved.
8 things you should look in a holistic diet for your pet:
1. Quality animal based protein sources that are steroid, antibiotic and hormone free.
2. Whole grains and not grain fragments. Look for grains such as millet, oatmeal, brown rice, quinoa and barley
3.Quality fat sources such as Omega Fats Acid Ration
4. Natural preservatives such as Vitamin E. Avoid chemical preservatives such as BHT and BHA
5. The food should be free of added colors and flavors
6. Beware of food that market inclusion of fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables should be fed fresh, cooked at high temperatures (such as those used in kibble) provide nothing in the end result except for fiber and sugar.
7. Keep in mind that probiotics and enzymes added to kibble diets must be genetically modified to remain active. Once digested these GMOs replace what the body has already made. Look for diets that include probiotics (such as inulin) that encourage the body's production of beneficial gut bacteria, rather than replacing them.
8. Grain Free doesn't mean carbohydrate free. Grains such as oatmeal or brown rice offer more nutrition and less insulin production than a white potato.
The best advice when looking for your pet's diet and yours is to rely on common sense nutrition rather than what you have learned from marketing or what packaging tells you.
Based on these principles we carry only holistic, healthy and organic products for your pets' nutrition. Here are some of the brands we carry:
