I am frequently
being asked what I feed my dogs and where I get my dogs food.
I firmly believe in feeding a diet, which is as natural as possible. Feeding a diet of raw meat, raw bones and raw vegetables. This is what dogs and their wolf ancestors have been eating for millions of years and benefits include: a glossy coat, healthy skin, lean muscle tone, robust immune system, sweet smelling breath, healthy teeth and gums, better digestion, strong heart and more energy.
- It’s cooked. Cooking destroys 70% of the nutritional value of the food from a dog’s perspective and makes it exceedingly difficult to digest.
- It can contain inappropriate and damaging chemicals (binders colourings, preservatives and other additives.) These may be absorbed through the bowel wall and transported to other organs, with a range of harmful effects.
- The quality of the ingredients is usually poor. Even expensive dog food often has very, very low-quality ingredients.
- Most dog foods contain a high percentage of grain (including rice), which is unsuitable for the canine digestive system and causes allergies.
- It generally fails to clean the dog’s teeth and gums, allowing plaque to build up. This gives rise to periodontal disease and worse.
