Raw Food Diet
This page is intended to be a resource for our puppy families and in fact anyone who is embarking on the feeding of a raw/varietal diet to their dogs and is looking for ideas, how-to's, tips and information.
Why Feed A Raw Diet?
- Dogs are derived from wolves, therefore, they are both omnivores and have almost identical digestive systems to each other
- Canines thrive on raw, fresh meats, bones, organs and fresh vegetables
- Dogs possess the proper enzymes to break down meats and vegetables, but not grains
Your dog will absorb all the vitamins, nutrients and minerals they need from raw food (this results in a smaller, dryer stool)
The nutrients in dry food are substantially eliminated during the cooking process
The dog's digestive system is able to digest raw food in as little as 5 hours as opposed to 12 hours when fed dry food
