Raw food feeding
With so many different options on the market it is hard to decide what product is best for your pet. No one diet is guaranteed to work for every pet, which is why you may need to try a few different options before finding the perfect one.
The raw food based diet has grown in popularity in recent years, but the discussions around it have also grown regarding the benefits and risks.
The major motivation for people feeding a raw food based diet is that it is a more ‘natural’ diet, based on what primitive dogs ate. However, the dogs in our homes do not resemble their wild ancestors. With so many physiological differences between our pets and their wild ancestors, can we be certain that what they ate is the ideal diet for your pet?
Below is an outline of the risks and benefits regarding raw food to help you make an informed decision. It is important to remember that what is best for your pet may not be best for someone else’s pet. Before deciding to proceed you should discuss your options with your veterinarian.
