Raw feeding is the process of serving dogs and cats a diet of raw meat, raw bone, and raw organs. A biologically appropriate diet is what their body was designed to eat. Although cats and dogs have been domesticated for thousands of years, their internal digestive system and physiology have remained virtually unchanged. Eating a minimally processed diet is the healthiest diet for any species.
The dog is defined as a carnivore that behaves as an omnivore, a hunter and a scavenger. In nature the dog would eat anything from prey to insects, fruit and berries. The cat is a true carnivore and relies on hunting for its diet. Both species will eat the carcases of their prey whole and raw. Therefore their meals will naturally include internal organs, plenty of bones and vegetables including herbs, from the gut of their prey. Other than the intestine content of other animals they will eat no grains. Both species rely on meaty bones as a major part of their diet.
Your dog or cat will develop a healthy coat; its skin condition will improve. You will also start to notice clearer eyes, cleaner ears, less itchiness, dryness, and flaking of the skin. Your dog or cat may shed some pounds, attributed to a higher protein and low carb (or carb free) diet. Your dog’s behaviour may improve and his health definitely will improve. You may find that previous “diseases” clear up without the use of steroids and antibiotics. And feeding a low carb or carb free diet, will reduce the risk of the onset of diseases such as diabetes, kidney disease, intestinal disease, and cancer. Your pet’s poop will greatly reduce in volume and it should not be as smelly as when they were fed kibble.
Most importantly, a high quality raw diet will help promote a long, healthy, and happy life for your pet.
