As humans, our bodies need proper nutrition to reach their optimal health and strength. When we don't get the right amount of nutrients in our system, our body begins to falter, and our immune system weakens. We are more likely to get sick, tired, or depressed. This also applies to our dogs, making what we feed them just as important as what we provide ourselves. Compared to other forms of dog food available, a raw diet is the best food your dog can eat. Raw dog food, also known BARF is filled with biologically appropriate ingredients for your dog.
A dog that eats raw food is generally healthier than one that doesn't because a raw diet has the greatest bioavailability of nutrients. This means that your dog's meal is much easier to digest than any other dog food, allowing all the nutrients to be absorbed.
Feeding a raw dog food diet is the best and most natural diet that provides the nutrition and health benefits your dog needs for enhanced optimal health.
Dry food was the most popular dog food to feed our dogs, but that was before we knew how harmful it was. Like processed food, dogs can digest kibble, but they won't receive the nutrients an authentic meal provides.
Dry dog food lacks the essential nutrients and vitamins necessary for the dog's biology. To thrive, dogs need the amino acids, vitamins, probiotics, prebiotics, and nutrients that a natural raw meat diet can provide. Commercial dog food companies claim that they provide your dog with these nutrients, but that is a myth!
Dry food is processed in extreme temperatures that destroy half of any nutritional value it has. They are packed with artificial flavours, colours, fillers, and preservatives, none of which are benefiting your dog's health.
Instead of processed dry dog food, feed your dog raw meat formulas that will give your dog the nutrients nature intended them to consume! A raw dog food diet will mimic meat, bone, organs, and some vegetation consumed in the wild.
A raw diet is biologically appropriate and will give your dog the essential nutrients needed to provide them with optimal health and longevity. With this being said, many specific benefits are leading to a healthy life.
A natural fresh raw diet can give your dog many health benefits, improve their current conditions, prevent future disease, and help them thrive.
There are many ways to calculate how much to feed your dog daily! Some people choose to base it on kCals (Calories for Dogs). Some decide to calculate based on body weight. We suggest feeding 2-3% of your dog's body weight daily to make it simple for you.
Our raw food comes in a handy 1kg frozen pack that you simply defrost and store in a container in the fridge. No mess, no working things out - just put it in your dog's bowl and feed as normal!
With nearly 60% of adult dogs classified as being overweight or obese, weight management is crucial. A raw diet can aid in weight loss and weight management. Obesity can lead to many other health issues and affect their activity level, quality of life, and longevity.
To ensure your safety when feeding raw, use the same safe handling practices you would use when preparing any raw meat: exercise basic hygiene, wash your hands, and sanitise surfaces after use.
