Why Raw?


Why a RAW Food Diet? Isn’t that extreme?

Absolutely not. In fact, it is the only diet that makes sense. There is substantial evidence that dogs who are fed a RAW species appropriate diet that their ancestors ate, actually thrive and have significantly less health problems than that of their kibble fed counterparts. In the wild all canines, (dogs, wolves and coyotes) eat meat, bones and organs of their prey. They also consume vegetables and fruits in small amounts. Commercial dog food (kibble and canned) contains little nutritional value due the toxic ingredients and fillers added to the food as well as the high heat and over processing in current production methods. Not only does it have little nutritional value, but scientific evidence suggests it is the source of our animals suffering with human diseases such as cancer, stroke, heart disease, kidney and liver issues, etc… Unfortunately the list goes on.

Dogs are carnivores. Their systems were never intended to consume and break down grains and carbohydrates. “GRAIN-FREE” DOES NOT MEAN CARB FREE! Grain-free diets are loaded with carbohydrates. Simple science shows us that carbohydrates are converted to sugar. Sugar stimulates the overproduction of insulin which then literally bathes the organs in an excess of that insulin, resulting in cancer and a barrage of other health issues. Our pets are literally dying of human diseases that their close relatives, the wolf and coyote, rarely suffer from. We believe this is largely due to the poor quality and toxic ingredients in commercial food.

Your friend will look, feel and act more vibrant! Studies show that raw fed dogs have less veterinary visits, less dental issues and cleanings, a significant decrease in allergy problems as well as a healthy digestive tract. All of these benefits will result in a longer and healthier life.
