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?

As always I received my delivery of Beef tripe in perfect condition. I use both the tripe and beef complete and our 7 month old puppy loves it. My husband and I truly believe that raw complete is the best way forward and has much improved over the years. Would feed nothing else.

High standard of feed and service

Nothing fishy going on here !
Sunday, 17 October 2021  |  Roger

Excellent individually frozen fish, all appear in A1 condition. Of course Chester the Lurcher will get his share as treats, but many will be used for pike bait too. To buy this many baits from a tackle shop would cost a small fortune. Thanks.

Dried Hoof Treat
Saturday, 16 October 2021  |  Victoria

The first time we have tried this treat.
Very popular with our Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy (1 year old!)
The treat is hard enough to give a good chewing sensation without being able to be consumed in a mouthful!

A must!

Add to bag if your dog likes raw fish. The mini mackerels are incredible to mix in with the completes and the sprats are perfect as a treat. Highly recommend - this is a LOT of fish for the price.

Thursday, 14 October 2021  |  Jodi

My not so food driven french bulldog loves this mix. I add in the mini mackerels and it's gone in a flash. Amazing quality and price for any raw dog eaters.

Great meat and all round service
Thursday, 14 October 2021  |  Tania

The meat is woofed down by my dogs - says it all as they are very discerning eaters! Just wish the packaging the meat came in was recyclable. Please ‘theyloveit’ look at this.

Super product, very easy ordering process and fast free delivery. The mince arrived in frozen blocks in a large plastic bag within a polystyrene box. So easy to transfer to freezer drawers and no excess fancy packaging to pay for. I just pull a couple of blocks a day out of the freezer so I always have some defrosted. My dog loves it and clears his bowl in record time.

Monday, 11 October 2021  |  Davina

My dog loves all the raw food and I love to see her chewing the raw meat as opposed to bolting down barely chewed canned food. I would thoroughly recommend it!

My dog loves it

I've fed my dogs on tripe for years and I'm so pleased they've all loved it because it's supposed to be one of the best things you can feed a dog. The disgusting look and smell of it is heaven to dogs. It's gone in a flash! Thoroughly recommend!

They do love it!

As always, arrived in perfect condition and no time. Lovely quality meat that all my 6 dogs love.

We switched to raw fed after doing an allergy test and finding out he’s allergic to fish and a lot of cereals etc. Massive benefit is he loves the food, a meal is gone in seconds, we’ve had to try and break it up a bit to slow him down. We normally have the chicken complete but thought we’d switch it up a bit and he loves this one too.

My dogs simply love the dry rabbit ears. I give them 1 dry rabbit ear each after every meal which is 3 times a day and they demolish it in seconds. Great product great people to do business with and great service. Thank you all .

Honesty can't personally say whether it is tasty or not but my hound loves it and leaves a lovely clean bowl. What more praise could you give!

Dog loves this and doesn’t hesitate to finish quickly
Unfortunately he is intolerant of chicken and I am finding it difficult to get any other meat as all seem out of stock

Another “thumbs up “ from my dogs .

Consistently good.

I've been feeding my boy this for 5 years now. The quality of food, delivery and packaging has always been spot on. It is also the only food he doesn't get fed up with. He's 7 years now, bit I'm regularly asked how old my puppy is.
