Grain or Grass: Which do we prefer?

At Eumundi Meats, we love stocking grass-fed and grass-finished beef for our human friends, and we love putting the same quality of meat in our pet food blends, too! Bella and Boots is proud of being human-grade, ethically made and grain-free. But you may be wondering why we care so much to use grain-free meat in our pet food blends.

Everything Bella and Boots does is with your pet’s evolution in mind: centuries ago when our dogs were grey wolves and our cats were roaming the African plains on their own, they would hunt and kill grazing animals such as antelopes and rabbits, as well as birds and smaller reptiles.

These animals would have had a small amount of grains and vegetation in their stomach, which our pets ancestors would have eaten. Nowadays, your pet may investigate the backyard and chew on a variety of different plants around the garden. So, what's different about the grains our friends' ancestors used to eat, and the grains you find in conventional agriculture?

Unfortunately, as always, the difference is the kind of additives, preservatives, non-nutritious fillers and antibiotics that are added to grain feed. This kind of grain feed is used to bulk up the animal, stabilise the shelf-life of the meat and avoid disease by pre-empting medicine. They are stuffed with empty calories, excessive fat and chemical additives. Not to mention, the pesticides, insecticides and GMOs used to grow the grains in the first place. This matters for your pet: while they may not be processing grains directly, they're eating all of the consequences of it. 

There's always more to learn, but we want to give your fur baby the best of the bunch, which is why we stray from grained, conventional meat and towards grass-fed, all-natural meat from our trusted farmers. It is true that grass-fed, not grain-fed, farming practices are better for the animal and the environment, but grass-fed meat makes a difference to your pet, and that’s why we include grass-fed, and no less, in our pet food blends..
