Our pets rely on us for everything they need to live a long and healthy life, and nutrition is one of the key ingredients. Cats and dogs are carnivorous animals so they need a high proportion of meat in their diet to stay healthy and strong.
Unfortunately, the pet foods we purchase contain a lot of bulking agents such as rice and potato with low meat content, this can cause a range of issues from decreased appetite, to allergies and increased stool production. Recently a lot more research on raw diets have been carried out, and results have shown it to be beneficial.
Here are 5 reasons why you should consider feeding your pet a raw diet:
1. Allergies - like humans, our pets suffer from food allergies too. With a raw diet, what you see if what you get. No additional ingredients as long as a supermarket list to sift through to figure out what could be causing your pet’s allergic reaction to a certain food.
2. Better Digestion - natural ingredients can be digested easier, which is great for pets with sensitive stomachs. It causes less gas, with firmer stools.
3. Medical Issues - it’s been proved to improve inflammatory issues such as skin conditions and joint inflammation. Pets have been reported to require less medication once converted to a raw diet.
4. Healthy Teeth - their wild ancestors used to keep their teeth clean, gums healthy and breath fresh by munching on bones of their prey. Adding bone to the raw diet will ensure they also benefit the same, and the lack of sugar will reduce gum disease and tooth decay.
5. Energy Levels - no unnatural and unnecessary ingredients like sugar, salt, preservatives means more stable energy release. Older pets have shown improved energy levels on a raw diet, probably due to them experiencing less joint pain.
