Why Raw Pet Food

Feeding your pet with raw feed completely natural as their evolution was based on raw food for centuries with their carnivorous digestive system.

 

Raw food is not a new way of feeding your pets, it existed long before dried food was out there. Cats and especially dogs were evolved as carnivores with an optimal raw diet through today.

They have sharp teeth to make meat consumption easier with no flat molars developed in their jaws to make vegetation an option for them.

Their intestines are also a factor for them to make meat consumption a healthy choice for them as their foregut and hindgut are shorter in comparison to omnivores and herbivores. 

 

Things to Know Raw pet food is a better option for stomach protection of your dog as even when not digesting, PH levels for their stomach range from 1.5 to PH 2.1. This protects dogs from harmful bacteria.

 

There are many different ways to feed your pet raw food for your pet to meet it’s recommended nutritional needs based on the values provided by prey that would be caught in the wild, a dog needs 80% meat, sinew, ligaments, fat 10% edible bone 5% liver 5% other organ meat An adult dog needs typically 2 to 3% of their ideal body weight. Puppies from the age of 8 weeks typically need 5 to 6% of their body weight. A fast-growing period occurs between 6 - 18 months, so it’s important to regularly check their weight and adjust accordingly.

 

What to feed? We recommend all new dogs and puppies to gradually start on Green Tripe once stools fine you can slowly introduce other meat types and organs Once your dog is transited to raw, then you can increase the amount of food to 2.5% or 3% of adult body weight Puppies should receive 2-3% of their expected ADULT weight split into 3/4 meals per day depending on age
