If you feed your dog junk food you can expect a life expectancy of about 7 years.
Wouldn’t you like to keep your dog around a little longer?

I just got home from a visit to Hawaii. I spoke to many people there and they had no problems with allergies. I wondered why?
As I talked to them I learned that although the pet food business is a big industry here, it's not so big a deal in Hawaii. They feed their dogs more table food and junk food! Not a good practice because feeding junk food will cause your dog to get cavities.
I saw one poor dog with two abscessed teeth. It could hardly chew it's food yet it's owners were oblivious to the fact they were killing their dog by feeding it KFC and candies. I told them if they did not have those teeth removed the dog would suffer liver and kidney failure from the poisons going into those organs.
They didn’t listen to me even when I offered to pay for the vet to remove the teeth. They rather have the money to spend on other things.
Look at any packaged food stuff and in the ingredients you will find sugar, sodium (salt) and trans fats, saturated fats and animal fat. It’s bad for people but if you don’t care about what it does to you, care about what it does to your dog. It will shorten his life expectancy, cause damage to his teeth which in turn will cause damage to his liver and kidneys, as the pus and infection drains into liver and kidneys.
Feeding your dog table food is not a bad idea if you are into healthy foods but junk food like Mc Donald’s, Burger Kind, Taco Bell, Carl’s Junior, and any chain restaurants use lots of salt, sugar and saturated fats. This is unhealthy for people and very bad for dogs.
Dogs should never eat sugar. Sugar is found in Mc Donald’s French fries. If a dog eats sugar, he will develop cavities. If he doesn’t eat sugar, no cavities.
Keep your dog away from Junk foods. It will lengthen his life by about four to 6 years. Isn’t it worth it?
