The Benefits of Feeding Raw

Raw feeding is a natural diet for dogs and cats, which means it contains all the nutrients that your pet needs to thrive. Unlike kibble, raw food contains no artificial ingredients or preservatives and can be customized to meet the specific needs of your pet.

The benefits of feeding raw are numerous:

Health Benefits

  • Improved digestion: Raw food contains more enzymes and probiotics than processed, cooked, or canned foods. These help break down the food so it's easier for your dog to digest.
  • Stronger immune system: Dogs fed raw diets have been shown to have stronger immune systems than those who eat a processed diet. This is because raw meat contains high levels of vitamins A and E, both antioxidants that support the body's natural defense against disease-causing organisms like bacteria or viruses.
  • Healthier skin/coat: Dogs on a raw diet tend to have shinier coats than those who eat commercial foods because they're getting more essential fatty acids in their diet (EFAs). EFAs are important for healthy skin and coat growth as well as helping prevent dryness caused by flea bites - so you will notice less itching on your dog's body as well!
