What is Raw Dog Food?
Raw dog food is made up purely of raw meat, bones, and organ meat (also known as offal).
A raw diet is usually based on ‘the prey model’. The prey model is also known as 80/10/10 (80% meat, 10% bone and 10% offal). This model reflects small prey, such as rabbits and pheasants, that dogs would have consumed in the wild.
Good quality meat is packed full of essential vitamins and nutrients with no fillers or grains.
We recommend feeding a variety of different meats. Variety is key when raw feeding as different animals contain different levels of nutrients, which means feeding just one type of meat will have much lesser benefits than feeding a variety.
Dogs are carnivores and have the jaw and digestive tract to consume raw meat and bone, just like their ancestors have for tens of thousands of years. Their stomach acid is much stronger than ours, making it very easy for them to break down raw meat and bone safely.
Why Should I Feed My Dog a Raw Diet?
There are many wonderful benefits to feeding your dog a natural, raw diet. Due to the food being unprocessed and with no unnecessary ingredients, your dog will only be consuming nutritious goodness. Some of the many benefits of feeding raw are:
- Glossy coat with zero or little odour
- Better oral hygiene and teeth
- Reduced itching, licking, and scratching
- Improved behaviour and vitality
- Reduced allergies and intolerances
- Less trips to the toilet and solid poops
By feeding raw, you are making the best decision to ensure a happy, healthy life for your four-legged companion.
How Do I Get Started?
The best place to start is to find out how much to feed your dog or puppy. You can use our online, raw dog food calculator.
Simply put your dog’s ideal adult weight into the calculator. This will bring up two amounts, one for a ‘Puppy’ and one for an ‘Adult’. If your dog is less than 12 months old, you should feed the puppy amount. For any dogs over 12 months, you should feed the adult amount.
Please note, this is just a guide and where every dog is different with different metabolism rates etc. you can tailor this to suit them.
