Introduction to Live Foods
Culturing live foods for pets is something that people have been doing for many years
with huge success in creating asustainable food supply and also in increasing the quality of
food that can be provided for their pets.
When you look at it that you are basically farming food for you pets, or raising pets to
feed your pets, it kind of reminds you of the farmer that grows corn to feed his cows! The farmer
plants his corn in long rows, waters it and takes his time and patience to allow it to become
fruitful so that when he harvests it, his cows can have the best possible food to eat so they can
be as healthy and productive as possible.
Looking at raising live foods this way shows how you can not only make an
improvement on the quality of food that your pets eat but also on the overall longevity of your
pets life and ahuge savings over buying prepared foods to feed your pets.
I have been culturing many different live foods for the last 20 years for all kinds of pet
from poison arrow frogs to 13 foot pythons. The basic principles are the same and only the pet
that eats it changes. Now granted the 13 foot python didnít eat micro worms but the mice and
rabbits I was culturing for it were just like it was a fish in my tank.
In later chapters we will cover culturing larger live foods and how to turn a profit from
your culturing efforts. This book will break each and every live food down into easy to follow
directions that you can use to set up and maintain your own supply of live food for your pets.
By reducing the overall cost, maintenance, and work involved in feeding and keeping
your pets healthy it will give you more time to enjoy your pets and give them a longer
healthier life with you. It is the right thing to do for your loved pet!
