Why Raw? Because we are what we eat. We know this is true for humans, and we can assume that a dog is a product of what he eats. The difference, of course, is that while we can choose what we want to eat, our pets don’t have that same luxury. They rely on us.
In many cases dogs are fed kibble or dry food composed of inferior quality ingredients that have been cooked or heat processed. Heat processing alters the protein molecular structure and renders the product harder to assimilate and utilize in the body leading to a higher accumulation of toxins, inefficient organ system function and not surprisingly, allergies and skin conditions. Normally it takes 4-5 years for degenerative disease and allergy symptoms to manifest – which is why we don’t begin to see itching, and scratching and hot spots in most dogs until they are about 5 years old.
All of this can be eliminated by feeding the animal what it was designed to eat, a raw food diet, and life expectancy of the animal will be extended as an added benefit!
Modern dogs are no different or very little different to their ancestor the wolf…The basic environment which the modern dog requires in terms of food and exercise is exactly the same as it was (and still is) for the wolf. Raw bones with meat are a major part of their diet… They eat offal such as liver and heart. They eat raw eggs. They eat decaying material…They eat a wide variety of foodstuffs. Insects, bark, soil, birds – complete with their tiny bones and feathers – whatever. Every meal they eat is totally raw. Not one part of it is cooked. Ever.
Dogs eat vegetables including herbs, from the gut of their prey. This vegetable material is raw, totally crushed and partly digested. They eat faeces. A wolf’s diet contain almost no grains… For a wolf – not one single meal consists of dry dog food. They don’t eat canned dog food either.
Living Enzymes and Raw Foods
Living Enzymes are proteins found in Natures raw foods which help the body function. Enzymes are only beneficial to the body if they are living. Once food is cooked or processed, it no longer contains living enzymes. Foods without living enzymes put stress on the pancreas to produce the necessary proteins to function.
Living Enzymes in a raw diet restore, repair, and maintain health. Animals replenish their enzymes systems by eating raw unprocessed foods. Natures Complete Meals retain their living enzymes, along with phytochemicals, antioxidants, and unprocessed amino acids. Your pet’s long term health depends upon these factors to ensure a long and healthy lifespan.
