Raw Dog Food

You are what you eat – and your dog is no different!

Most common issues that people see the vet for may be avoided by giving your dog the correct nutrition.

The best way to feed your dog is by giving a high quality raw or fresh food diet.

Raw feeding is certainly taking centre stage at present with a whole host of nutritionists, trainers, vets and store owners recommending this as THE way to feed your dog. Raw feeding is giving your dog the food nature intended – a dog’s body is specially designed to digest a high raw meat diet, animal fats and very little carbohydrates.

 

Benefits of RAW dog food

  • Raw, natural food can be easier for dogs to digest. Plus, there’s none of the added sugar, bulkers or derivatives found in some pet foods, that can cause our pets digestive issues
  • Because raw food is 100% natural with no added fillers, there’s less waste to come out the other end! The result is smaller, firmer, more pick-up-able poos.
  • Just the right quantities of carefully selected fruits, vegetables, protein and healthy fats can give your dog a glossy coat and may help to improve skin complaints.
  • Our raw meaty chews are a great natural way to add to your pet’s routine dental care. A tasty, healthy choice to help clean teeth, provide entertainment and freshen breath.

We recommend feeding your dog a good quality complete RAW food from reputable DEFRA approved companies. Human chain raw meat can contain lots more bacteria than RAW pet food and could cause a bacterial threat.

R.O.R

 

Many raw diets have a very high bone to meat ratio, which can lead to:

  • Excessive levels of calcium
  • Less goodness from innutritious bone
  • Potential bone shrapnel gut damage

Not into raw?

We know that raw is the best way to feed, but we also know that it is not for everybody. Feeding a bad quality raw food can actually have adverse effects on your dogs health and it may be more beneficial to find another option.

If raw isn’t your thing, we have some great options available in store. We recommend avoiding the cheap, grain filled food found primarily in supermarkets and discount stores – although these foods seem cheap and great value they can have an adverse affect on your dogs health. These low quality foods contain too many fillers, very low meat content and quality, low quality oils and in some cases a large list of additives and preservatives. Cheap brands also cost more money in the long run especially when you are picking most of it off the lawn! The brands we love in store don’t have multinational company owners and most are independently owned and operated.

We recommend foods that have a much higher meat content than commercial brands (most of our good foods contain over 50% meat). A higher meat content means more of the protein and fats your dog would naturally eat are in the food. We also recommend foods with high quality carbohydrates and the most digestible grains (in the correct quantities of course). Foods with high quality animal oils are ranked highly in store – dogs are made to digest animal fats, not refined vegetable fats!
