Why Go Raw?
- Promotes better health which leads
to a longer and happier life
- Less food related and allergy
- “Raw” food offers the full nutrition
and digestive enzymes pets need,
with vitamins, minerals, etc. supplied
in a natural way and not by
- 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
- Our single source protein makes
it easy to do an elimination diet to
- 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.
