Feeding your dog a raw food diet is now much more popular than it was, however it can still be controversial. It is common that working dogs and racing greyhounds are fed on a raw diet, however, more and more people are now switching their pets to a raw food diet. It has been suggested that adult dogs will thrive on an evolutionary diet based on what canines ate before they became domesticated: Raw, meaty bones and vegetable scraps. It has been suggested that grain-based commercial pet foods can be harmful to a dogs health.
Known around the world as ‘BARF’ (Biologically appropriate raw feeding). Raw feeding (BARF) is your dog eating as close to what they would have done as wild animals which is much more natural for them and their digestive system. The stomach pH in dogs is much lower than in humans and as a result, they can break down raw meat and bone easily. Manufactured pet food is based on meat derivatives and they contain added sugars, preservatives as well as other ingredients that are not good for your dog and their long-term health. Take a look at the ingredients of some mainstream pet foods and I am sure you will be surprised, as well as ingredients you wouldn’t want to feed your dog the meat content is often very low. BARF uses human grade meat and only vegetables, superfoods and oils are added for extra vitamins and nutrients.
The benefits of feeding your dog a raw food diet are endless, some the reported benefits include:
One of the main benefits of a raw food diet over traditional kibble is the fact that the nutrients in the food are more readily available. The cooking process used to create kibble exposes the raw ingredients to extremely high temperatures which destroy a significant portion of the nutrients and natural enzymes contained in the ingredients. A raw food diet has not been cooked, so the original nutrient content of the ingredients is retained. The nutritional integrity of a raw food diet provides many benefits for dogs.
A raw food diet for dogs is exactly as it sounds. It is a diet that is comprised of fresh, raw foods. While there are different ways to create a raw food diet for dogs, one of the most popular and beneficial options consists primarily of meat and raw bones, fortified with some fruits and vegetables or formulated supplements to ensure nutritional balance.
Dogs are primarily carnivorous animals, which means that their bodies extract nutrition from animal-based sources. This does mean that meat should be the primary focus of a dog’s diet. In addition to raw meat and organs, raw bones provide key minerals like calcium as well as other nutrients. Raw food diets for dogs can be either homemade or commercially prepared and brought which is the option that a lot of people take now as it takes away the need to buy and handle raw meat and bones as it comes readily packed per meal portion.
A raw food diet should include:
