Thank you for your interest in Celtic Connection. The term holistic (holistisch) means to see the animal as a “whole” instead of separate “parts”. There are many pet foods on the market for the joints, the skin, digestive problems, etc. but what do you feed if you have a dog with stomach issues, bad skin and arthritis. Should you alternate each week to address one of the issues, feed based on what the WORST issue is right now, or are you better off mixing different foods and trying to find the right balance for all your pet’s problems.
A holistic pet food does not focus on just one system, but recognises that health begins from the inside with food that is appropriate for the animal – for carnivores like dogs and cats, that means a high percentage of meat no grains, gluten or fillers and no artificial flavours, colours or preservatives. And of course plenty of healthy physical exercise, love and attention and mental stimulation for a long, healthy, happy life. At least that’s my view. You can find out more on the Celtic Connection website or by contacting me.
