Raw Food Diet Benefits
What is a Raw diet?
Raw feeding is the practice of feeding domestic dogs, cats and other carnivores a diet of uncooked meat, edible bones, and organs.
Why should I feed a RAW diet?
A Raw diet provides a range of benefits that a commercial diet can never hope to even closely match.
These benefits include:
- No pet odor
- Meaty bones will help clean teeth
- Much less stools produced
- Decreased or non-existent vet bills (your animals are healthier!)
Why is commercial food not good for my dog or cat?
There are a range of problems with commercial dog and cat foods.
The truth about most commercial dog and cat foods is that they are loaded with additives and harmful chemicals that harm your dog or cat over time.
Many dogs and cats are suffering from many elements that can be avoided when the right food is fed to them.
The Pet Food Industry is a Multi-Billion Dollar Industry Driven By Greed
It's designed to glean profits at our dogs and cats expense.
What else goes into commercial pet food:
- dead zoo animals
- euthanized pets from the pound (with poisons still in them)
- road kill
- dead, dying, diseased, and cancerous cattle from feed lots
- dead horses
- skin, hide, feathers
- anything else they can't turn into human food

Well then, why do so many people still feed their dogs and cats commercial foods?
Commercial pet food companies have got the advertising part down amazingly well. They have entered the market at every point. With some companies, breeders and vets get major discounts and kick-backs for selling their product. They sponsor dog shows, they advertise in dog magazines, they get high profile people (including vets) to talk about their product. They use fancy packaging.
And most importantly, their advertising campaigns are slick, and tend to make people feel guilty if they feed any other way.
