Why feed raw?

6 CommentsSaturday, 20 January 2018  |  theyloveit

Now there's the question!

Raw is natural to animals. Cooked, tinned and processed food is not.

Raw is a truly healthy option. Providing you maintain a balanced diet of 80% protein, 10% bone and 10% offal (usually consisting of 5% liver and the other 5% can be any secreting organ such as Kidney, Pancreas etc) then there is no reason why your dog, cat, ferret etc won't absolutely thrive on it. They should be on at least 4 different proteins such as chicken, turkey, beef, lamb, fish, rabbit, venison etc which should be varied over time.

Raw fed dogs require less food, the food is high in nutrients and their bodies can process more % of it, therefore there is less waste than kibble or tinned fed dogs. Their waste is much smaller, firmer and best of all far less smelly!

Providing you take all the usual hygiene precautions when you are handling raw, then there are no risks.

A raw fed dog will develop stomach acid levels which will deal with breaking down bone content and tackling any bacteria that can be found in raw food which would be harmful to us but not to them.

Is it natural for an animal, born with paws and claws to eat food from a tin or kibble from a sack? Would they be able to cook their food if we didn't do it for them? No. Of course not. So why do we, as a nation of self confessed dog lovers, still feed our dogs this rubbish? More and more dogs fed on kibble are becoming allergic to storage mites for example, present in many kibbles. They develop allergies to grain, wheat, cereal etc that is present in many dry foods as bulking agents, and don't get me started on what goes into those tins of stinking gloop!

Go on, give it a try. You will not look back!

My mastiffs thrive on it, would never go back to man made rubbish

Been feeding my two raw for over 2 years now. Happy, healthy and works out cheaper than the old dry kibble. Never, ever going back.

Hi we have been a fan of your meat for ages, but we have recently had a poorly puppy the vet thinks gastro so we are feeding just cooked chicken thighs and rice at the moment.
I just wondered in the minced chicken what gives it the darker colour?
I have tried cooking your food as in my mind it would be the same as giving her the cooked chicken thighs, but when I do this she goes downhill again!
Any advice on your years of feeding raw would be great thanks.
Maybe I need to order without bone?
I was quite surprised that the vets don't seem to like the raw diet?!!!! Seems very strange to me as it's more natural!
Thanks for any help

The reason a lot of vets don't promote raw is because it is a much healthier way to feed your dog and not only would there be less vet visits, the vets are paid highly by the kibble companies to promote their products and if they all agreed with raw then they would lose this funding

Oh my goodness Charmaine, please don't cook our food, it has bone in it and it is dangerous cooked because the bone becomes brittle and sharp, it must only be fed raw.

The darker colour is liver in the complete meals. I would try cutting out the offal content for now and just feed plain chicken mince and bone raw and then you will see if there is a problem with the offal content. What breed of dog do you have as some can't have offal such as Dalmatians.

Kind regards

It would be Ok though to cook your boneless products e.g. pure beef?

Purchased this to introduce a different protein to their diet. Shame it is so much more expensive than the chicken completes , but other than that Iím pleased. Will probably alternate with the chicken one to reduce overall cost

Best Tripe
Monday, 14 September 2020  |  Antonia

The green beef minced tripe is great stuff. My dogs love it and itís so very good for them. Yes it smells a bit unpleasant, as all tripe does, but thatís a small price to pay for the goodness it contains.

Delicious marrow bones

My dog tells me that these bones are very good. They certainly keep a Rhodesian Ridgeback quiet!

I am a returning customer and I can assure any doubters this is the best tripe you can buy maybe cheaper elsewhere but not like this tripe or anyway near best quality best value and if a dog can smile and speak they would say love it love it every time

Doggos first food on raw
Tuesday, 1 September 2020  |  Holly

Bought this as the first food for our Husky's move onto raw. He absolutely loved it, watched us like a hawk during the preparation and was the first time he's fully emptied and cleaned his bowl in some time. Gone are the days of leftover biscuits!

It arrived swiftly, well packaged and still frozen, made the switch to raw so much easier. One very happy customer with a very happy dog!

Great food
