Ask the Pet and Water Garden Expert – Rob Andreas

Why Go Raw?

  • Promotes better health which leads
    to a longer and happier life
  • Less food related and allergy
    problems
  • “Raw” food offers the full nutrition
    and digestive enzymes pets need,
    with vitamins, minerals, etc. supplied
    in a natural way and not by
    processed additives
  • Chewing exercise, gotten from
    chewing chicken and turkey necks,
    chicken carcasses and other raw
    bones, is good for both cleaning
    teeth and satisfying the natural urge
    to chew.
  • Our single source protein makes
    it easy to do an elimination diet to
    determine allergies
  • Frozen Raw Food eliminates the
    need for preservatives (needed in all
    dry foods) and cooking (which
    destroys some of the naturally
    occurring vitamins and minerals –
    which means they must be added
    back with processed products).
  • The dog’s immune system is
    designed to handle bacteria such as
    salmonella. If dogs are fed nothing
    but heat sterilized food, you are
    depriving them of the opportunity to
    develop an immune response to
    these and other organisms.

Handling raw foods for your pets requires the same care as your “human” food does. Raw food will spoil if left unrefrigerated for an extended period of time. Excess food not eaten should be refrigerated for the next feeding or discarded. Keep raw meat separate from other foods, wash working surfaces, utensils and hands with soapy water after each feeding.
