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

Being an advocate of DIY, I only bought this as we're due to go on holiday and my daughter, who's looking after Blossom, wouldn't be bothered. However, the convenience, quality, service and price have convinced us to continue with these products. Thanks.

Great product & my dog loves it, but it would be even better if it can as 5kg rather than just 10kgs or more. Iím transitioning my dog using this & it's taking up a lot of freezer space. Weíll get through it though as itís going down a treat! Need a gas mask though!

All my three dogs loved this. Even the ultra fussy one, initially the wrong order was delivered but this was resolved swiftly and efficiently. I gave my original order to my dog minder. Her dogs loved it and she is now going to place an order. I highly recommend these products.

Chicken with veg
Sunday, 9 February 2020  |  Linda

I was buying just the chicken mince and adding kibble, I now buy mince with veg added and itís the perfect portion for a meal for my gsd, making life even easier. What would be good is if there was a way of sending back the packaging for re use. ( some other frozen food delivery companies do this)

the chicken and vegetable looks lovely and fresh and he couldnít get enough, the turkey he wasnít so keen on but think thatís because it didnít have the veg or bone.
But no problems with the quality or quantity for the price,I will certainly be ordering again,he even looks happier now he doesnít have tinned food anymore 😊😊😊

Chicken breast fillet chunks
Monday, 3 February 2020  |  Steven

Our dogs go wild for these chunks. One of our dogs has a tendency to put on weight and these chunks are ideal for her because of the low fat content. The chunks are easy to weigh out for her allowance and she cant wait for us to put her bowl down !!! The service from this firm is excellent by keeping you informed of delivery dates and time.

Our pyranean and bernese mountain dogs loved these, kept them busy for hours, much better than the cooked bones as these are too greasy and splinter too easily, will definitely be buying more of the marrow bones.
