Raw feeding is designed to replicate a dog’s natural diet. It simply means that you feed your dog raw fresh food (meat, bones, fruit & veg), the way nature intended it. This is commonly referred to as a BARF diet, which is an acronym that stand forBiologicallyAppropriateRawFood.
A raw dog food diet is very similar to the original, natural diet of wolves, which mainly consisted of raw meaty bones, offal and the contents of their prey’s stomach (which could include seasonal vegetables, fruits and even grains). The logic behind raw feeding is that dogs, being the descendants of wolves, thrive off the same foods because that’s what their systems have evolved to operate on.
The Benefits of a Raw Dog Food Diet
A raw dog food diet can significantly improve your dog’s health and well-being. When dogs make the switch, their owners report many benefits including:
Cleaner teeth and fresher breath
Improved digestion & immune system
Improved weight control
Improved diabetes symptoms
Strengthened immune system & bones
Improved liver, pancreatitis bowel, and reproductive health
Less poop and healthier stool
Shinier, healthier skin & coat
Reduction of allergy symptoms (skin allergies and ear infections)
Reduced arthritis & bone disease suffering
Less visits to your vet
What’s more, your dogs will love it! Feeding them a raw diet gives you the flexibility to adapt their food to suit their individual tastes, needs and lifestyle, and exclude any ingredients that cause intolerances and/or sensitivities.
Finally, dogs are carnivores. The structure of their teeth, jaws and digestives systems are designed to deal with animal protein, not kibble. It makes sense to feed them what their bodies have been made for.
Why Complete Raw Dog Food?
Like humans, dogs are healthiest when they’re fed a varied, well-balanced diet. One of the challenges with any diet is getting enough of the right nutrients, minerals and vitamins. Raw feeding is no exception.
