EVERY DAY RAW PET FOOD REQUIREMENTS:
EACH FEEDING SHOULD BE:
“Is Raw Food Right For My Dog?” is a question we get a lot.
While many dog parents understand the benefits of raw pet food – stronger immune systems, better digestion, cleaner teeth, a healthier coat and greater energy levels – they think raw is meant for large dogs, show dogs or working dogs.
We are on a mission to make one fact crystal clear: the benefits of a raw diet extend to all dogs, no matter what size, breed, or activity level.
Breaking the Stereotype:
Commonly, a stigma surrounds the term "raw," and it's not uncommon for pet parents to associate it exclusively with large, athletic, or working dogs. Let’s set the record straight: the raw diet is not reserved for a select few. It's a diet crafted by nature for all dogs, whether they prance around as French Poodles, stand tall like German Shepherds, exude wild energy akin to Czechoslovakian Wolfdogs, or embody the spirited charm of Scottish Terriers. Raw feeding is a universal canine delight!
Little Paws, Big Benefits:
The misconception that raw diets differ dramatically for small and large dogs needs debunking. Yes, small dogs may fit in our laps and melt our hearts, but in essence, they're carnivores seeking the same benefits as their larger counterparts – a natural diet abundant in protein and light on carbohydrates. Size might vary, but the fundamental dietary needs remain consistent.
A raw diet is adapted to meet your dogs requirements, meticulously formulated to ensure they receive the perfect balance of nutrients. This tailored approach goes beyond being reserved for special circumstances - it’s a transformative journey for all dogs, from those battling allergies or those who are a picture of perfect health.
Raw food contains higher levels of bioavailable nutrients (nutrients that are easier for the body to absorb and utilize) and less carbohydrates than other diets. This means energy levels are consistent and sustained – no more highs and lows – and benefits overall wellness. This also makes weight management easy, as you can increase or decrease your pet’s feeding amount while maintaining consistent energy levels on their journey to their ideal weight.
Immune System Support:
Raw food provides essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that actively support pets’ immune system responses, strengthening them against illnesses and enhancing their quality of life.
Raw food is made from meat, bones, organs and plants. It does not contain the preservatives, fillers or additives that many commercial foods are made with. This diet aligns with the natural diet dogs have eaten throughout history and promotes optimal digestion, reducing the likelihood of gastrointestinal issues. This is noticeable in smaller, firmer stool, which decomposes quickly.
Cleaner Teeth, Healthier Gums:
Not only does a raw diet keep your dog’s teeth clean, but it also contributes to healthier gums and better breath. Meaty bones require chewing, which naturally scrapes plaque off teeth and massages gums, promoting circulation. Raw meat also doesn’t stick to the teeth like kibble, resulting in cleaner, whiter teeth and fresher breath.
The rich, digestible nutrients and higher moisture levels in raw food are the key to a healthy, shiny coat and soft fur texture. Many pet owners notice that their pets’ allergies, itching, hair loss, hotspots and other symptoms improve after switching to high-quality raw food. This is because quality raw food contains no additives or preservatives, which can activate and worsen allergy symptoms.
