Raw Feeding

Raw Feeding

If you’re new to the concept of raw feeding, you may be wondering what it’s all about and why you should consider it for your dog. Raw feeding is a back-to-basics approach that takes its lead directly from nature.  It replicates the high protein, high energy diet that wild canines have thrived on for thousands of years, making it substantially different to the cooked, processed convenience dog foods that society has become accustomed to in recent decades. 

In its most natural form, as it is in K9 Natural, a raw food diet is high in protein, high in energy, low in carbohydrates and completely raw to get the optimum nutritional benefit from its ingredients.  Raw bones should also be part of a good raw food diet because they satisfy a dog’s instinctive urge to chew and have numerous health benefits.

Raw feeding is growing in popularity throughout the world as dog owners come to realise that modern 'convenience' dog foods - often made with foodstuffs rejected for human consumption, or with an excess of species inappropriate ingredients like grains, may not be in the best interests of their pets.  Many vets also share this view and are increasingly recommending a raw feeding approach because of the obvious benefits it has for dogs.

There are many benefits, including:

  • Excellent muscle definition producing a fitter, leaner appearance
  • Greater energy and alertness
  • The reduction/elimination of symptoms of allergies
  • The reduction of hyperactivity
  • Easy and effective weight control
  • Healthy skin and lustrous coats
  • Enhanced oral health including clean teeth and fresh breath (especially if raw bones are a regular part of your dog's diet)
  • Small, firm stools

In addition to these benefits, many owners who’ve switched their dogs from processed foods to a raw diet have reported significant, life-altering changes in their pets.  Reports from K9 Natural customers include the complete elimination of serious skin allergies (which had cost hundreds of dollars to treat without success), to amazing transformations in the energy levels of senior dogs previously thought to be ‘on their last legs’.

It’s possible to make raw food for your pet at home but it’s time consuming and hard to gauge if your home made blends are meeting your dog’s nutritional needs.  Commercial raw food products have been developed to make raw feeding simple and convenient.  We believe that K9 Natural is the finest on the market because it uses high quality ingredients and is nutritionally-complete without the need for any further supplementation.  It’s also affordable and exceptionally convenient.

Given how natural a raw food diet is for canines, it’s hard to imagine a reason why you wouldn’t feed your dog a carefully prepared, nutritionally-balanced raw food.  With K9 Natural, you can feed a raw diet with confidence.  And we believe you’ll be thrilled with the positive effects it has on your dog.
