Why Feed A Raw Diet?
Dogs and Cats are Carnivores:
When we say “raw” we are referring to a species appropriate diet. Dogs and cats are scientifically classified as carnivores. Their teeth and digestive systems are specially adapted for eating whole raw prey: meat, bones, organs, fat and skin. Their nutritional needs have not changed much over their years of domestication. The best, most highly digestible diet for our domesticated carnivores is a prey model diet based on a variety of raw meaty bones and whole carcasses.
What can they eat?
As much variety as possible, the more protein sources the better: chicken, turkey, pork, beef, quail, game hen, rabbit, lamb, goat, venison, and emu, just to name a few. Prey model feeding refers to feeding all aspects of food: Meat, bones, organs, fat, skin, fur, feathers.
What are some of the benefits of feeding a raw diet?
Shinier, healthier skin
Fresher breath/cleaner teeth

A general increase in overall health
Because you want your pet to live the longest, healthiest life possible!
