What Is A Raw Diet And Why Is It Better For Your Pet?

Updated: Jun 16

Food has a significant impact on overall wellness for every member of our family, including our pets.

Processed Food Is A Major Contributor to Many Illnesses

Recent research has identified processed food as a major contributor to many illnesses including obesity, diabetes, and even cancer. We intuitively know that a healthy diet for us includes a variety of fresh, whole, minimally processed ingredients. It makes sense to extend this same principle to the dogs and cats we share our lives with.

A Diet Designed For What Canines and Felines Would Naturally Eat

A healthy diet is more than a list of nutritional information. The foods that our canine and feline companions are designed to eat are quite different from what we are feeding them today. Determining how real foods can help your pet thrive involves looking at what they are naturally designed to eat; muscle meats, organs, consumable bone, roots, berries, grasses, and sometimes even insects!

Easily Accessible Nutrients

Real food contains easily absorbed nutrients, and provides water content that is critical for digestion. Cats, in particular, are biologically designed to absorb water content from their food instead of from a water dish. An all kibble diet can lead to chronic dehydration in cats.

Cats and dogs can survive on many foods, but will thrive on natural, minimally processed, and species appropriate diet.

Noticeable Differences After Switching To Raw

Often pet parents notice vast health improvements after switching to raw regardless of breed, age, or activity level. These external improvements are also often signs of improved internal health.

  • Improved energy and vitality

  • Improved digestion

  • Better weight maintenance

  • Smaller, less offensive stools
