Dogs are carnivores and as such they need a high percentage of meat in their diet. It’s very difficult for dogs to process common filler ingredients found in some dog foods such as rice and wheat which is why the majority of our range is grain free. While most dogs look very different on the outside from their wild ancestors (wolves) their digestive tracts are still the same. This means that dogs are designed to eat and process raw meat. Most raw dog foods are around 80% meat and 20% raw fruits, vegetables and herbs. Most brands also offer an option for a 100% meat diet.
The campaign for raw diets for dogs has been gaining more and more popularity in recent years and it’s easy to see why. Dogs have been shown to have more energy, healthier skin, glossier coats, cleaner teeth, better smelling breath and even better behaviour when fed on a raw diet. Complete raw dog food also promotes better digestion in dogs which means smaller, less pungent stools.
Feeding your dog a raw diet can seem like a big step to take but the amount of people switching over to a raw diet seems to be growing all the time. We’ve had so many people switching their dogs to a raw diet only to say how much healthier and happier their dog has been since the switch. If you’d like to know more on making the switch to raw dog food feel free to contact us as we’re always happy to offer advice whether by email, phone or come down to the store and see our range for yourself.
