Feeding Raw

Apr 15 2021

The raw dog food diet or the ancestral diet has many benefits. Touted by many as the ‘miracle’ diet for dogs, especially for those with a lot of ailments, the raw dog food diet works because it is the most ‘normal’ diet for our four-legged friends.

Why? Dogs evolved eating the raw dog food diet. They are not ‘designed’ to eat corn and wheat which comprises about half of what is in commercial kibbles and canned pet foods. Feeding your dog raw means you will be in complete control of everything, just like the control you have about the food you eat or serve to your family.

These are just a few of the benefits your dog may get by switching to a raw diet:

  • Cleaner teeth and fresh breath
  • Better weight control
  • Improved digestion
  • Shinier, healthier skin and coat
  • Reduction of allergy symptoms
  • Harder, smaller, less smelly stools
  • Increased mobility in older animals
  • More energy and stamina
  • Strengthened immune system
  • Improved liver, pancreatic and bowel health
  • Savings due to less trips to the vet
