Why Feed Raw Food? 

Carnivores were designed by nature to be self maintaining.  In the wild, the pack of wolves and wild cats have the biology to nourish and heal their bodies with what is available to them.  We may have domesticated these creatures over time, but we do not need to humanize them.  Feeding your animal a raw diet provides them with an abundance of bioavailable nutrients that their bodies are designed to effectively digest and thrive on.

Some of the benefits associated with raw feeding

  • Cleaner teeth, better breath

  • Less poop

  • Healthy skin and coat

  • Reduced inflammation

  • Calmer temperament

  • Stable digestive system

  • Stronger immune system 

 

Most common health conditions can be linked to diets of highly processed commercial food, many of which are high in carbohydrates and low in quality proteins.  A raw diet should be thoughtfully put together to ensure that nutritional needs are met. High quality ingredients are a must for optimal value to your pets health

Components of a Raw Diet

 

Appropriate food quantities can be estimated by assessing your animals weight, age and activity level. On average, adult dogs on a raw diet will eat 2.5% of their body weight in food per day and adult cats will eat 3%. Puppies and kittens can eat up to 10% of their body weight in food per day over three or four small meals.

Raw Foods for Dogs

While dogs are predominantly carnivorous, their adaptable bodies also allow for the digestion of plant matter.  Dogs can be fed either a PMR diet (80% muscle meat, 10% edible bone, 10% offal) or a BARF diet (70% muscle meat, 10% edible bone, 10% offal, 10% vegetable).  We recommend that you include at least one white protein, one red protein and one source of fish per week. Green tripe is also a fantastic addition to a raw diet for digestive support, especially for dogs who consume plenty of raw meaty bones.

Raw Foods for Cats

Cats are carnivorous hunters and every part of their physiology is reflective of that fact. They are best suited to a PMR diet (80% muscle meat, 10% edible bone, 10% offal) with the addition of beneficial foods such as bone broth and goats milk.

To maintain a healthy balance of nutrition, they should be fed at least one white meat, one red meat and one source of fish per week.
