In an interesting but silly trend, we have tried to make your canine friends eat more like us, but the tide has turned and for both humans and animals, the focus is on eating more raw food.
It is becoming common knowledge that a raw food diet is what dogs have evolved on, and that processed foods are mostly responsible for poor health in you and your animal. The success stories are piling up, and it is difficult to ignore that feeding raw food to your animals is the way to go.
The benefits of premium grade lines are two-fold: no messy preparation for the owner and a sound nutritional formula, so that both you and your dog are getting what you need. So, what does your menu contain? Your pet has a potential health boost here, as well as being in for a treat.
Nature’s Variety Raw Food Diets have their customers raving, with some calling it a miracle food. They believe it has cured illnesses and chronic conditions in their pets.
Available in patties and small medallions, Natures Variety is high in protein, with 5% organic sprouts, fruits and vegetables, and a range of ingredients from squash and blueberries to quail and pheasant eggs.
An increasingly large snack range of bones and meat products is available, in differing grades from organic to free-range and chemical free. Nature’s Variety, Primal Petfoods and Raw Advantage all offer poultry neck products.
FarMore Raw Frozen Buffalo Bones are just the thing for those energetic chewers. Bones from non-medicated, free-range animals provide marrow and essential nutrients. If you are looking for all natural food try raw beef bones from Primal Pet Foods and Raw Advantage.
Among the main competitors in the raw food industry, Raw Advantage is in front with an amazing line of choices. Although its Organic Dinner for Dogs may not include the more exotic ingredients its competitors choose, its line of food is free-range, organic, hormone and pesticide free and includes kelp and garlic which is a natural body cleanser and immune builder.
Raw Advantage Organic Only Meat goes a step further in including the freshest chemical free meat, organs and offal. If grain will work, consider the organic products made by Raw Advantage Organic Rock Island Raw, which mix meat with millet and oats.
Primal Pet Foods endeavor to directly mimic the diet of the wild, and use 100% human grade organic and chemical free ingredients. Enriched with anti-oxidant and mineral laden sources such as kelp, coconut oil and cranberries, Primal has the added guarantee that all its meat is all natural vegetarian fed.
The addition of ground eggshell as an excellent source of calcium allows Nature’s Logic to offer the 90% plus meat/poultry, gluten and grain free product at an affordable price.
Northwest Naturals come in both dinner nuggets and frozen bars which are sectioned into portions and are available in beef, turkey, chicken, salmon and bison formulas. All formulas are high in protein, contain vitamin-rich ingredients, and are fortified with minerals.
Bravo Raw Food Diets provide a good base into which other supplements can be included, giving owners more control over their dog’s diet.
