Feeding Fido Right: How Raw Food Can Boost Your Dog’s Life

Hey, dog lovers! Ever wonder why our furry friends seem to have more health problems these days? Well, it turns out that the way we feed them might be the culprit. Let’s dive into the details in a way that’s easy to understand.

Dogs’ Changing Diets: A Bad Deal for Health

Humans have changed the way they eat a lot in the last 100 years. We moved away from farms, started eating more convenient foods, and, surprise, our pet dogs went through some diet changes too. The problem is, the processed stuff we feed them is causing issues like diabetes, cancer, and obesity. But here’s the good news: a study shows that switching to a raw food diet can actually make dogs live longer!

What Dogs are Supposed to Eat

Dogs are not like us; they’re more like wolves. In the wild, they thrived on a diet of live prey, which means lots of protein. Their bodies are built for that, not for breaking down carbohydrates like grains and plants. But guess what most commercial dog food is made of? Yep, you guessed it – lots of plant-based stuff.

Surviving vs. Thriving

While dogs can technically survive on the processed kibble we give them, it’s not ideal. Recent studies reveal that it’s causing diseases and making dogs live shorter lives. So, they might survive, but they’re not exactly thriving.

Raw Food to the Rescue

Researchers in Belgium studied over 500 dogs for five years and found that what dogs eat really affects how long they live. Sterilization and food were the only things humans could control, and guess what? Raw food was the winner! It added almost three years to a dog’s life, way more than any other factor.

Benefits of Raw Eating for Dogs

Feeding your dog raw food isn’t just about making them live longer. It also helps with natural weight control, keeps their teeth clean, improves mobility, reduces allergies, boosts energy, and could save you money on vet visits.

Choose Raw, Boost Your Dog’s Life!

If you love your dog and want them to have the best life, it’s time to rethink their diet. A raw food diet can add up to three years to their life, giving you more time to enjoy their company. So, let’s make the switch and keep our furry friends happy and healthy!

It also may be cheaper to switch to a raw diet. If you find raw chicken breast for sale it is often cheaper on a per calorie per basis to buy your dog real meat and freeze it than to buy canned “premium” dog food that has a much lower actual quantity of real meat. Six pounds of chicken breast have roughly 4200 calories and 12 cans of dog food are about 4300 depending on brand.

List of Raw foods recommended: (Each pet can have various allergies so it’s a good idea to introduce the one new raw food at a time to their diet.) It’s also a good idea with raw meat to freeze it first, freezing will kill off most bacteria although a dogs gut makeup is far more acidic than a humans and they evolved eating animals they just killed in the wild, so they don’t need to take the same precautions human do.
