Understanding Raw Dog Food and Finding the Best Quality

Raw Food

With so many different brands and types out there, it’s easy to get confused on what to look for. You might be surprised to hear that feeding your dog a high quality raw food diet can be great for their overall health & longevity, and doesn’t have to mean you will spend as long prepping their meals as you do your own.

Commercial Raw Food vs. Home Made

A raw diet done properly is not as simple as picking meat from the grocery store. Store bought raw meat is not a complete meal for your dog. They also need bone and organ in their diets.

Reputable companies that are producing raw foods will ensure the correct proportions of meat vs. organ vs. bone ratios and other components that will most closely resemble how a dog would eat in the wild. They also have sophisticated sterilizing procedures that help to eliminate food borne illness.

How to Evaluate Raw Food

If you want to know what is in the raw food you are considering purchasing, just take a quick glance at the ingredient list. There is nothing in the ingredient list you shouldn’t be able to read and understand. Making sure your raw food is a complete meal with real meat, bone and organ and added veggies to ensure your dog gets all the nutrition they need. Remember – high protein, grain free and a simple ingredient list.
