Raw Dog Food Diets

Dog chewing on raw bone
The first question you may be asking yourself is what is wrong with processed dog food, and why might it not be the optimum diet for my dog?

 To help answer this question it may be helpful to explore the recent history of processed dog food. You will probably have come across the expression ‘as fit as a butchers dog’. This is a commonly used phrase to describe a person (or animal) that is in optimum health. The phrase itself derived from the fact that not too long ago, healthy dogs were fed from the butchers, not the supermarket. It was a well known fact that a dog fed on butchers scraps would be a very lucky (and well fed) dog indeed.

The key points to remember with a raw diet are: Balance over time

  •  The calcium and phosphorus ratio should be 1:1. Meats are high in phosphorus, bones are high in calcium and whole prey, fish, eggs and tripe have a balanced ratio. 
  • Organ meat should not exceed 15% of the diet. Feed liver once a week (or several small servings per week) and try to find an organic source if possible because the liver is responsible for filtering toxins out of the body. 
  • Feel free to feed ‘weird and icky things’ such as chicken feet, beef trachea, tails, lung, kidney, testicles and pizzles. Beef trachea, trim, chicken and turkey feet are loaded in natural chondroitin and glucosamine which help to build healthy joints. 
  • If feeding pork or salmon, be certain to freeze the meat for two weeks before feeding to reduce the small risk of parasites. 
  • NEVER feed cooked bones of any type. Raw bones are soft enough to bend and digest easily. For optimal safety, meal times should always be supervised. 
  • Try to find grass fed animals that are not given hormones or medications if possible. Younger animals in general will have accumulated fewer toxins to pass on to your dog.

Why raw food?
Dried dog food has become so common it is almost the assumed canine cuisine. And while us humans will routinely consider natural and organic foods for ourselves, we don’t always think of it for our dogs. The convenience of dried dog food is tough to overcome. Your friends at Raw Goodness Dog Food are here to make it easy to feed your pet a natural, raw diet. We provide healthy, raw food for your dog, shipped directly to your door and perfectly portioned according to your pet’s weight. All you have to do is defrost it and serve it.
