Your Local Source for Raw Frozen, Freeze Dried & Dehydrated Foods
Hear about a raw diet and wondering how to get started? Educating our pet guardians about the benefits of feeding dogs and cats a raw food diet is what we’re all about. While processed foods offer great convenience, our pets’ digestive tracts are still designed for fresh food. We’ve had many owners report that their pets’ chronic illnesses, food intolerance’s and allergies have disappeared since they changed them to a raw diet. Even adding one meal a day or a few times a week can be very beneficial to your pet’s overall health. This is not just another trend but it actually mimics the staple diet of carnivores like our dogs and cats. Have you ever seen your dog or cat cook their own food or stalk down an ear of corn?
The benefits of a fresh food diet:
â€˘ Live enzymes
â€˘ Less toxins and preservatives
â€˘ No synthetic nutrients
â€˘ Provides proper hydration (especially important for cats)
â€˘ Easier to digest
â€˘ Maintains healthy teeth & shinier, healthier skin and coat
â€˘ Maintains a healthy digestive tract and aids in weight control
â€˘ Increased mobility in older animals
â€˘ Mimics the natural diet of meat (raw), bones, organs and shredded veggies
â€˘ You know what your pet is eating
A raw diet is the ancestral diet for your dog and cat. Dogs and cat’s digestive physiology have changed little from their wild counterparts. Our pet’s bodies still need the nutrition they get from eating a raw diet rather then a heat-processed diet. Heat destroys most anti-oxidants, healthy oils, phytonutrients, enzymes and living beneficial micro-organisms. This can result in your pet not getting enough digestive enzymes in their diet which makes their pancreas work harder at producing them. This puts an extra burden on your pet and can result in creating chronic illnesses. Feeding a bio-available, raw diet can help your pet get the nutrients they need without depleting their digestive enzymes and giving their bodies the ability to thrive rather then just survive.
