Hound & Gatos Corporation is determined to help house pets get back to basics. They want to ensure that your furry canine companions are happy and healthy and will live longer. They do so by offering the first ever Paleolithic pet food. If pets live longer, so do their humans.
Dogs have been praised over the centuries for their companionship benefits; people are more mentally and physically sound with a canine in their life. Working dogs, such and seeing-eye dogs and therapy dogs, are also extremely beneficial for not only their companionship but for the great service that they provide to their humans. Cats also provide companionship that many people crave – such as the elderly.
“The pairing of seniors with calm, manageable adult dogs and cats has yielded amazing vitality and unparalleled effects, the feeling of loneliness dissolves and a reason to be active arises,” affirms Will Post, CEO of Hound & Gatos Pet Food, whose mission is to provide the public with high-quality pet food options for dogs and cats. “The simple presence of animal companionship can provide amazing health benefits that truly lift a senior’s mental and physical state because they have someone to depend on and someone who depends on them.”
According to the US Pet Ownership and Demographics Sourcebook, there are approximately 70 million pet dogs and 74 million pet cats just in the United States alone. At least 63% of these animals are considered to be family members by the people that love them.
It is reported over and over again that The Center for Disease Control and Prevention have reported that pets can reduce stress, help to lower a person’s blood pressure and cholesterol levels, in addition to increasing their social interaction and physical activity. When an animal loves, it is unconditional. This is extremely important for senior citizens to know that there is someone or something out there that really cares.
Pet Partners has reported that those seniors with an animal companion actually experience fewer minor health issues. They have better overall health and mental well-being, too. One of the most important reasons that pets are so important to seniors is that they reduce loneliness and depression because their tendency is to live in the present; focus on ‘today.’
"These positive results of animal companionship for seniors is one more reason to encourage the ownership and nurturing of pets for the seniors of today. We are only beginning to document these facts determining the health benefits of pet ownership for the elderly, though animal lovers have always suspected it. Their contribution to a better quality of life being recognized can only lead to happier and healthier seniors, something we can all be excited about,” says Post. "The importance of love proves to be a major force in life no matter what age one might be.”
Research continues to show that pets help people of all ages enjoy a much fuller and rewarding life, and the mission of Hound & Gatos Pet Food Corporation is to try to create cat and dog formulas that can ultimately improve our beloved pet’s vitality and longevity. Dubbed as the original Paleolithic pet food company, their recipes are 100 percent protein and zero percent plant protein, with the number-one ingredient being meat.
