You’re a Doggie Well-Being Rock Star

Being part of the RAWbellion means you’re a doggie well-being rock star. You’re being bold, challenging the status-quo and making a stand against the accepted “norms” of the commercial dog food world.

Your Dog Needs YOU to Fight Their Corner

Your dog is totally dependent on you to give them the nutrients they need. What goes into their belly totally impacts their health, their happiness and everything in-between. Your most faithful companion needs YOU to fight their corner, so they can become the dynamic dog they’re truly designed and deserve to be.

Why Raw?

What’s So Wrong with ‘Normal’ Dog Food?

In short, commercial dog food is far from doggie well-being centred. It’s high in toxins and low in the essential vitamins, minerals and nutritional value a dog needs to thrive. It’s highly processed which means most essential nutrients are depleted in the manufacturing process.

Dogs are resilient, like humans, and will survive if not fed appropriately, however they won’t thrive. Their health and vitality undoubtedly suffers without the right biological balance.

A quick history lesson in dog food

As fit as a butchers dog

I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase, ever wondered where it comes from?

Prior to the Second World War, dogs were fed a mixture of canned meat, butcher’s trimming and cooked food scraps. Those dogs had strength, stamina and a robustness which isn’t seen in many dogs today.

Due to meat shortages and rationing during the war, only certain foods like grains and other high starch carbohydrates such as corn, wheat, rice and potatoes, were both readily available and cheap to mass produce. It was because of this that commercial animal feed (such as kibble) became mainstream and gained popularity due to cost and convenience.

Dogs are designed to eat meat

When making a decision on what to feed your dog, it’s important to consider their anatomy and digestive system. Dogs digestive tracts have not significantly evolved from when they were undomesticated wolves, and are best suited to fresh, high-protein prey-based diets. We call this ‘species appropriate nutrition’ and is what a natural, raw diet seeks to replicate.

A dog’s teeth are like a Swiss-army knife, with each type of tooth designed to perform a specific function, whether it be slicing, chewing, ripping flesh or crushing bone.

A dogs stomach is not physiologically designed to digest and ferment carbohydrates (the main ingredient in kibble). Even grain-free kibble often contains high-levels of starchy carbs including legumes, peas & lentils. Feeding this to a dog puts their system under pressure, creating metabolically stressful insulin, glucagon and cortisol spikes throughout the day. The high carb content also contributes to the growing epidemic of obesity in dogs.

Why Dogs Need Meat

How a raw diet can help your dogs digestive system

What exactly is in commercial dog food?

Commercial dry dog food is broadly made up of 60% carbohydrate, very little moisture and minimal, low quality protein. Low moisture puts a dog in a constant state of dehydration.

When a dog gets dehydrated, they experience the following harmful symptoms:

  • Inappetence
  • Lethargy
  • Panting
  • Dry nose and gums
  • Sunken, dry-looking eyes
  • Loss of skin condition and elasticity

In addition to this, due to the way in which kibble is intensively processed, there are many toxins introduced during its preparation. Aflatoxins are one example of this. Grains, nuts and legumes become contaminated with moulds which produce aflatoxins both during and after harvest, due to poor or extensive storage. These aflatoxins are potent carcinogens which have been identified as contributors to cancer, anaemia, liver and kidney failure and other potentially fatal diseases.

So why is process food bad for dogs

The problem with carbohydrates dogs

What’s missing from commercial dog food?

Commercial dry dog food is broadly made up of 60% carbohydrate, very little moisture and minimal, low quality protein. Low moisture puts a dog in a constant state of dehydration.

The concern is not just about what is in commercial kibble, what isn’t in it is a worry too. Most of the nutritional value is lost during the high-heat cooking process. Vital vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes are destroyed. Even if a higher quality kibble is selected which claims to contain better protein levels, or be free from fillers and additives etc. the fact is the product is still ‘cooked’ which damages the nutritional value of any such ingredients.

Many manufacturers use synthetic enhancers, alongside ‘spray-on’ pre-mixes containing fats plus a vitamin and mineral blend to try and add back in lost flavour and nutrients. Most importantly for manufacturers, these synthetic additions ensure their feeds can pass regulatory requirements.

This might sound like a reasonable solution to the problem, but what isn’t taken into account, or highlighted to you as the consumer, is a matter called bio-availability. Bio-availability means the proportion of the nutrient that is digested, absorbed and metabolised through normal pathways. Studies have revealed that a dog’s body cannot fully absorb such nutrients in the way they are provided in commercial kibble.

Not only is absorption of essential nutrients a problem. Something even more concerning is that synthetic nutrients delivered in this way can also impact vital functions of the body, with organs such as the liver and kidneys being put under pressure.

Say No To Dog Food And Yes To Raw

Raw is best

Dogs are designed to eat the foods their ancestors did in the wild, raw and natural. We simply can’t replicate the quality of nutrients found in nature in man-made form.

From their teeth, to their gut and digestive system it is abundantly clear that dogs are carnivores. The optimum diet for them is the one nature intended. Fresh, quality, raw, human grade ingredients. Including healthy fats, biologically appropriate proteins, carbohydrates and valuable nutrients.

The absolute best way to achieve this balance is by selecting a raw diet. Raw food is easily absorbed and also ‘exercises’ the dog’s digestive system promoting a fit and healthy gut.

Why natural nutrition rocks!

There are a host of health and well-being benefits to a natural raw diet for your dog. Check out below what your four-legged companion will experience when you make the move to raw.

  • Better digestion, bolstering the immune system and overall well-being
  • Improved gut health, helping to eradicate sensitivities, allergies and other conditions
  • Glossy, shinier coats and healthier skin
  • Cleaner teeth and reduction in nasty, smelly breath.
  • Smaller and firmer stools (more of the nutrients in the food are used by the body so there is less waste to eliminate)
  • Stable energy and boosted vitality
  • Healthier weight management
  • Increased mobility in older animals
And that’s just the physical benefits!

Aggression and behavioral issues are also linked to poor diet. The mind and body is intrinsically linked so nutrition is a key influencer on mood and behaviour. Switching your furry best friend to a raw diet will impact your puppers happiness and sense of well-being, substantially improving behavioral issue such as:

  • Chewing
  • Excessive digging in the garden
  • Food theft
  • Jumping in
  • Hyperactivity
  • Lethargy/Depression

Make the switch by joining the RAWbellion. You’ll be astounded by the results.

There’s absolutely no doubt. Feeding your beloved canine a premium diet, designed the way nature intended makes for happier, healthier more vital and dynamic doggo!
