About Raw Feeding

THE KEY TO A GOOD HEALTHY RAW DIET IS VARIETY AND FEEDING PROTEINS FROM NOSE TO TAIL (ALL PARTS OF THE ANIMAL) CHICKEN AND TRIPE ALONE IS NOT A HEALTHY RAW DIET!

  • Try to feed at least 4- 5 different proteins including oily fish and the occasional raw egg in shell. The more variety the better as your dog will obtain different nutrients from different sources of protein and feeding different parts of those proteins will also add different nutrients.
  • Healthy dogs should eat 10-20% fat in their diet as they need fat for energy and brain development, they do not process fat as we do but mix lean and fatty meats so ensure a balance. If you have a dog which cannot tolerate 10-20% fat i.e., maybe they have pancreatic disease then speak to your vet and ask an amount they should have in their diet, it can be trial and error as some dogs with Pancreatic disease tolerate more, some less, so I can’t give general advise re the exact amount but Raw food is very easy to adjust for each particular dog.
  • All dogs are different, and some need more food to maintain weight than others, some need a higher bone content, some can tolerate less offal. You can tailor this diet to suit each individual dog’s needs. Their Daily food ration needs to be split into however many meals you feed and if your dog puts on weight easily and you want to give treats then include treats in their allowance.
  • If your dog has been raw fed before then you can move along with adding proteins a little faster, so I would advise introducing new proteins every 3-4 days, just like pups and young dogs. Seniors can have problems digesting bone so be aware if starting a senior.

The Benefits of Raw Feeding Your Dog

DENTAL HEALTH

Cleaner teeth and less bad breath.

Though they might smell of tripe for a short while (after a tripe meal) it won’t last long.

DIGESTION

Smaller and less poos.

Dogs have short digestive tracts which allows a raw food diet to travel through the intestines as quickly as possible. They take a lot more nutrition from a raw diet, and there is less waste, and it doesn’t smell as strong as a kibble fed dog which is a bonus when picking up after them.
Your dog may not drink as much water whilst on a raw diet due a raw diet having a high-water content.

IMPROVED PROTECTION

Reduced allergies.

Some dogs have gluten allergies too, which can affect their skin, coats and ears. We’ve seen almost instant improvements in dogs with allergies (within a week), once their owners have ditched the kibble and started on a raw diet.

IMPROVED TEMPERAMENT

Happy dogs!

Dogs enjoy eating natural, raw food. Chewing on a bone or our chunky minces is what their teeth were designed for and it gives their jaws a great work out. Raw food gives dogs immense pleasure when eating and contributes to improved oral hygiene, digestion and better coats and skin.

IMPROVED COAT AND SKIN

Which could mean less trips to the vet!

Many of our customers start raw food as a last resort after spending a lot of money visiting vets and trying lots of different foods without any improvement due to allergies and skin conditions which can, a lot of the time, be caused by food additives, preservatives, and artificial flavours added to kibble.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Raw Feeding?

Raw feeding is a diet for your dogs and cat designed around a more natural approach, this is made up of meat, bone and offal. With feeding your animals the right ratio of these will ensure they are having a healthy and balanced diet. There are two main methods of raw feeding; DIY, this is sourcing your own products and putting together your own meals following the correct meat:bone:offal ratio. The second way of doing this is buying pre-prepared minces, you just need to defrost the minces and serve to your beloved pets.

Storage of Raw Food Products

All our products are frozen, so ensuring you make room in your freezer is a must when feeding raw. We recommend to only defrost the amount of food you would need to feed, however any extra or left overs can be kept in the fridge, we just advised to keep it in a sealed container and aiming to use it 2-3 days after it has been defrosted. Just make sure when handling the raw food you follow the same hygiene rules you would follow when preparing raw meat for yourself.
