Why feed raw?

5 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
Charmaine

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

Good quality product but the blocks are very small. Some had defrosted by the time I got them . The animals still enjoy them but they're more awkward to select the right amount due to such variations on block sizes.

First order and first impressions are good. Much easier to store and handle than previous supplier. Comes in decent size blocks, doesnít take long to defrost. Dogs have still eaten as quickly as they normally would so I donít think that they have any problems with the swap!

Saturday, 4 July 2020  |  Julie

Frozen chicken mince would have been fine but 2 polystyrene boxes were in bits. Looks like damage in transit but meant meat was part thawed & smelly when it arrived. Good job we were home as driver was leaving boxes in full sun too. Long term customer & usually very happy with service but a bit below par this time.

A great staple in the dogs diet
Wednesday, 1 July 2020  |  Jo

My dogs loves her chicken and bone, she has it mixed with Tripe or /and Duck, and has never left any of it. She also has it stuffed in a kong (which she gets all excited about) The blocks are delivered frozen and are easy to pop into the freezer (they do stick to each other) unlike the Tripe, so I put a layer for greaseproof paper onto of the first layer and then put the next layer onto of that. Great service from this company, very helpful if you call them and super quick delivery. Cant fault them or the product.

Am new to feeding raw food and have to be careful what i feed as I have a Dalmatian. My dog loves this tripe and has it every day, moved with some other meat / meat and bone product. The ordering process was easy and when I called to ask how big the blocks were, the person I spoke to was very helpful. The food was deceived the next day, and I had an email advising of its dispatch, another that it would be delivered via DPD and then another with a delivery slot of an hour. Fabulous service!! could not have asked for more, will be using this as my regular supplier of raw food

I was advised by my whippet breeder to give our pup these frozen if she was over eating. I have been giving her them whilst it so hot to try and cool her a down a little and she really enjoys them.

Monday, 29 June 2020  |  Sara

My whippet pup was bought up on this and she really does love it. I was reluctant to try it, and spent a small fortune on other packeted dog food but she just would not eat it so I relented and bought this. Other than having to packet each chunk individually to fit in my freezer and consequently the room it takes up it is very economical and she genuinely loves it. I have cats and she never steels their food or begs for human food either.

Chicken necks
Sunday, 28 June 2020  |  John

Dog is not fussed what she eats. They are quite quick to defrost. Useful if you forget to defrost. High protein content despite the high bone content. So good value for money. I use as part of multi meat meal.
They come small in bags, may still need to drop them a few times on the floor, other than that easy ish to separate.

Hi - These bones are excellent, the dog very much appreciates them, however he can be a bit of a dumbass and loses them on occasion. Could definitely be improved with some form of GPS tracking.

Beef chunks
Tuesday, 23 June 2020  |  Ashling

Well my dogs LOVE this, but I donít 😩 Once itís defrosted, the chunks are still big, even for my 3 Rottweilers. I donít mind cutting them smaller but itís really hard work and a chore I could do with out! It truly is the ugliest meat Iíve ever seen🤣 The service from this company however, is AMAZING. Fast and professional in every way.
