Natural Instinct Sponsors CIDBT

Dog Food and Behaviour

Colin Tennant MA Chairman of the CFBA and CIDBT has many decades of canine practice and has observed that problem behaviour in pet cats and dogs can be linked to artificial additives in processed foods.

In essence, he believes that the same science which explains why humans should eat a more natural diet and reduce or stop eating highly processed foods – can and should be applied to what we feed our pet dogs and cats. He says “feed your pet what he was designed to eat”, food that is truly natural.

Sue Armstrong, Veterinary Surgeon who works closely with Natural Instinct, knows all too well from the many behavioural cases that she sees in practice just how important diet can be. These problems include hyper excitability, aggression, poor concentration levels and even the way in which animals are accepted in the home by their humans. In these situations dietary change to a natural raw diet has radically altered the outcome for some animals, in addition to a course of training.
