What is  Dog Nutrition Naturally
Raw Food Diet For Dogs ?

 Let's talk about the raw food diet for dogs I use at home. I am constantly being asked...

" What do you feed your dogs? "

I have not always fed a raw food diet for dogs. I have come full circle in that regard, and have fed all of the following...

I was not satisfied with any of these choices because...

  • they did not produce the health benefits I wanted to see
  • they were labour intensive and time consuming to prepare
  • they contained dog food ingredients that did not please me 
  • they were just way too expensive


Why Did I Choose This Particular Raw Dog Food Blend?

What I wanted was a premixed, frozen raw dog food that met my standards for...

  • Health - It must have the correct nutritional percentage breakdown, as modelled by the evolutionary history of the dog.
  • Ingredients - It must contain ingredients specific to carnivores
  • Convenience - I was really tired of making my own raw dog food.
  • Cost effectiveness - Why should I have to take out a second mortgage just to feed my dogs appropriately?


Appropriate Food For Carnivores


The domestic dog, whose taxonomic ( species ) name is Canis Lupus Familiaris, is a domesticated form of the grey wolf, which is a member of the Canidae family, of the order Carnivora.

What that mouthful means, is that our pet dogs are related to the Grey Wolf and are carnivores ( meat eaters ) by species nature. Scavenging carnivores to be exact. So, the best healthy dog food consists of a diet based on foods that dogs are genetically programmed for.

That means that dogs must get their energy and nutrient requirements from food that consists mainly of animal tissue. As scavengers they will also consume some non animal food such as fish and eggs, along with small amounts of vegetation as would be found present in green tripe, the predigested stomach contents of the herbivore prey animal.

Do We Include Fruits and Vegetables as Part of Our
Raw Food Diet For Dogs?

Please note that we do not add fruits and vegetables as we feel that dogs being carnivores, do not really need these extra carbohydrates which, over time, can put a heavy burden on the pancreas.

We prefer the nutritional benefit of herbs as a diverse and highly digestible source of quality plant food to help reach optimal well being, and prevent dog health problems. Our herbs deliver high quality nutrition and a life giving energy, that a few questionable grocery store fruits and vegetables could never offer. There is simply no substitute for quality. Results speak for themselves!

For old dogs, or sick dogs dealing with a chronic health issue, a natural species appropriate diet is the place to start. Back to basics using healing food, as Mother Nature intended. Raw dog food used together with a few targeted, high quality nutritional health supplements and herbs can and do help, by providing micro nutrients known to aid in the repair and recovery of specific health issues.
