I have been a holistic veterinarian since 1994 and a raw pet food advocate since 1998, I started specifically recommending Answers™ Raw Pet Foods for my patients in 2010 when the company launched its first products, I got on board with Answers because I was impressed with the exceptional quality of the ingredients, the science based balance of nutrients, the impeccable care of preparation, and most of all, the integrity of all those in the organization. I have stuck with Answers over the years because of the consistent positive results I have seen in my patients.
The true genius of Answers food is their proprietary fermentation process which efficiently inhibits pathogens in the food, and reinforces a healthy gastrointestinal microbiome in the pet. These foods effectively mimic the canine and feline ancestral diets which were far from sterile. It is clear to me from current research that probiotics are essential nutrients that are missing from other pet foods, both heat-processed and raw.
The only downside I have found with getting my patients on Answers foods is that often, within weeks of starting the diet, the pets no longer require the herbs, supplements, and other treatments I was planning to prescribe. Frequently, the signs of sickness melt away like a snowball on a hot stove.
