WE FEED OUR DOGS RAW MEAT. YES, RAW...AS IN, NOT COOKED... WITH THE SKIN AND BONE.
AFTER A LOT OF RESEARCH, WE FEEL IT IS WHAT’S BEST FOR OUR DOGS. THE HEALTH BENEFITS ARE AMAZING, THEY SHED LESS, DON'T HAVE BAD BREATH, THEIR TEETH ARE PEARLY WHITE AND THEY HAVE FEWER TRIPS TO THE VET. WE MAKE ALL OUR DOGS' FOOD OURSELVES, THAT WAY WE KNOW EXACTLY WHAT THEY ARE EATING. WE USE ALL HUMAN GRADE INGREDIENTS. SOME FOLKS MAY THINK THAT THE BACTERIA IN RAW FOOD COULD MAKE THE DOG SICK. IN FACT, DOGS ARE WELL EQUIPPED TO HANDLE THE BACTERIA IN RAW FOODS. THEY HAVE A SHORT DIGESTIVE TRACT AND AN ACIDIC STOMACH, THIS AIDS IN AVOIDING BACTERIAL INFECTION.
VETS ARE TO BE VALUED, HOWEVER, MANY VETS HAVE HAD VERY LITTLE NUTRITIONAL TRAINING AND ANY THEY HAVE HAD HAS BEEN BASED AROUND PRIMARILY HIGHLY PROCESSED KIBBLE AND PRESCRIPTION DIETS. THE TRAINING iS OFTEN SPONSORED BY LARGE CORPORATE PET FOoD COMPANIES WHOM HAVE MADE BIG pROFITS OVER THE MANY YEARS OF VET RECOMMENDATIONS TO FEED A CARBOHYDRATE HEAVY DIET TO CATS AND DOGS. SADLY, THE ONLY CASES OF RAW FEEDING THAT VETS REMEMBER ARE THOSE CASES THAT HAVE GONE WRONG; INEXPERIENCED RAW FEEDERS, POORLY SOURCED RAW MATERIALS AND POOR HYGIENE. WE ARE ENTERING INTO A REFRESHING PERIOD OF TIME WHERE MORE VETS APPRECIATE A HOLISTIC APPROACH TO ANIMAL HEALTHCARE, THEY VALUE FOOD AS MEDICINE AND RECOGNIZE THAT GOOD NUTRITION IS PARAMOUNT TO A HEALTHY PET. THESE VETS WILL TELL YOU HOW IMPROVED YOUR PETS SKIN AND COAT ARE, HOW MUCH HEALTHIER THEIR TEETH AND MOUTH ARE AND THAT THEY ARE AT A HEALTHY WEIGHT, THE LATTER OF WHICH IS VERY IMPORTANT IN A MODERN WORLD OF OBESE PETS AND OBESITY RELATED DISEASE.
Our DOG food Recipes are 80% Meat, 10% bone, 5% organ & 5% liver with added pureed vegetables to provide needed fiber.
they are species & biologically appropriate and nutritionally balanced.
In our home the puppies WILL go from mother's milk to raw, getting ground up meat, bone, skin, and organ (including liver). It won't be long until the puppies can chew through a chunk of chicken with the bone. After a few weeks in your home they should be able to eat through some bones (CHICKEN NECKS ARE A FAVORITE). They will be slow, but can eat it.
YES, dogs can eat raw bones, but they must be supervised. don't ever give a dog a cooked bone of any kind, the cooking process draws out the moisturE, CHANGES THE CHEMICAL MAKE-UP and leaves the bone brittle, which can splinter and cause severe digestive issues.
Raw BONES ARE AN EXCELLENT SOURCE OF VITAMINS AND MINERALS.
