Q: How many people fast their pet once a week?

If not, why? Do you feel guilty or is there another reason, possibly medical. I am not suggesting it by any means since I am not a nutritionist. Part 2: Answer to questions - why? See my journal. Many nutritionists and holistic vets recommend it to cleanse the system.

I WOULD NEVER DO THAT TO MY PETS, THEY ARE LIVING CREATURES AND NEED TO EAT JUST LIKE HUMANS. WITH THERE SMALL STOMACHS THEY EAT SMALL MEALS, BUT MORE OFTEN.

I wouldn't make a pet fast unless he/she was scheduled for surgery!

I never heard of anyone doing that. I dont think it would be good for them. I just leave food out for them and they eat when they want. Im sure their bodies work differently than people's do and they dont eat all the cholesterol, etc that alot of people do so they probably dont need to do that.

No, I never heard it was something dog owners do. My dog eats when he wants which is sometimes twice a day, sometimes once a day, and sometimes he doesn't eat for a day.
