So what is Raw feeding?

 And how can it benefit my dog?

 This is a biologically appropriate method of feeding for carnivores using raw meat and bones.

Our pet dogs are carnivores. 

Carnivores are designed to eat raw meat and bones. .

If we chose to ignore what our dogs are capable of digesting and processing, we leave them at huge risk of becoming sick and developing diet related complaints.

When we feed a raw diet, made up of raw meat and bone, we are supplying the dog with a diet he can digest and process, as this is the diet Mother Nature designed for him.   

 By feeding a raw diet, we can prevent our dogs from developing a huge array of diet related complaints.

We can also ease the suffering of a dog. who is pre-disposed to developing genetic illness, by simply changing his diet to raw.  

The raw diet is seen by many as a 'miracle cure' and owners new to raw marvel at the improvements to their dog's health once they have been swapped over to a raw method of feeding.  You can read what some of them have to say HERE

But this diet is not a 'miracle cure' - it is simply the correct way to feed your dog and when you do this, diet related complaints, which have been caused by feeding your dog a commercial diet will almost always disapear.    

 More importantly, if you are lucky enough to have a commercially fed dog who is not displaying any diet related complaints, which are associated with commercial feeding - when you swap him to raw, you remove the possibility that even though he may be healthy now, the odds are stacked against him remaining so.

By swapping him to raw BEFORE he gets sick, you can stack the odds of him remaining healthy, he will then thrive, not merely survive.  

It's a shame that many owners do not discover the raw diet before their dog does get sick, the usual scenario is a desparate owner, who having tried everything from multi commercial food changes, in the hope that they will find one that their dog can tolerate, to spending hundreds of pounds at the vets trying to 'cure' their dog. 

 FACT - if your dog is suffering a diet related complaint (which to be fair most commercially fed dogs are) then your vet will not be able to 'cure' your dog, all he can do is treat the symptoms. 

I will guarantee that in 6 months or less you will be back at the vets with the same problems; as treatment isn't always a cure and if the cause of your dog's problems is the food he is eating, then your vet stands very little chance of helping him, but he will charge you £sss trying!!
