Raw Pet Food

Raw pet food has become increasingly popular with dog and cat owners. The basic idea is to feed food that dogs and cats evolved to eat with no additives, preservatives, or chemicals. It has been shown to better nutrient absorption, improve dental health, increase energy, better skin and coat health, help with weight management, improve digestion, reduce allergy risk, and help to improve the immune system.

Many people believe they should include vegetables in their pet's raw diet, but determining which ones are appropriate can be challenging. While dogs in the wild may scavenge and consume vegetation, carnivorous pets primarily derive their nutrition from meat, bones, organs, and tripe. These foods provide essential vitamins and minerals like liver and kidney acting as a natural multivitamin, along with beneficial nutrients from oily fish and eggs. Fiber, important for gut health, comes from roughage such as bones and ligaments rather than plant sources. Antioxidants like Vitamin E, Selenium, and Coenzyme Q10 are crucial in combating oxidative damage in the body, supported by a diet rich in unoxidized dietary fats. It's important to avoid exposing pets to pesticides, chemicals, additives, and preservatives, which can contribute to oxidative stress. While some pets may tolerate small amounts of vegetables, starchy varieties like potatoes and certain fruits can interfere with digestion and nutrient absorption. Monitoring for any digestive issues and observing changes in overall health is essential if considering adding vegetables to a pet's diet.

In general, we recommend incorporating 1-2 types of protein + offal or portion of tripe + raw bone, which not only provides essential calcium, vitamins, and minerals but also promotes dental health. This balanced approach helps ensure your pet receives the necessary nutrients for optimal health and vitality.

Feeding tips​

1. Feed a weekly mix of 2 or 3 proteins, organs, and tripe.
2. Feed 1-2 times per day, 2% of their weight.

3. Never feed your pet cooked bones.

4. Avoid any protein that your dog has a reaction to. Many dogs have allergies to particular protein types.

5. Transition to raw food over the span of one week. Days 1-2 use 75% existing and 25% raw. Days 3-4 use 50% existing and 50% raw. Days 5-6 use 25% existing and 75% raw, and on day 7, use 100% raw.
6. 10 days after transitioning to a raw diet, introduce raw bones with meat and fat.

7. Be sure to wash your hands when handling any raw foods.

8. Defrost cubes prior to feeding.

9. Adjust feed amount if your dog loses or puts on weight.

10. Feed puppies the following percentage of their body weight:
2-4 months old - 7 to 10% of their body weight
4-8 months old - 5 to 7% of their body weight
8-12 months old - 3 to 4% of their body weight
12 months+ - 2-3 % of their body weight
