Biologically Appropriate Raw Food for Pets
The simplest answer is because that is how your dog or cat would be forced to eat if you were not around, so it is obviously the most natural way to feed them. Given this, we can rationally assume that our pets are adequately equipped from a digestive perspective to be able to process food in raw form with little trouble, but unfortunately in this day and age there is an assumption that processed food is how our dogs and cats are meant to eat and that raw food is both bad for them and dangerous.
We buy expensive food from our vets thinking and honestly believing that this is the best we could possibly feed our furry family member. This is far from the truth however and companion animals have never before experienced the kind of maladies they do in present times. In the USA, statistics put companion pet cancer at one in four pets, that’s 25% of the companion animal population!
Many people are beginning to see that diet obviously plays a role and that perhaps the processed foods we have been feeding may be partly responsible. We see many new pet foods on the market today claiming to be grain free (containing rice and oats), this is a reaction to a market whose pets are not doing well on traditional maize and wheat based foods. If the first ingredient listed on your pet food is cereal, then you need to reconsider what you are feeding your dog or cat. This ingredient forms the basis of most commercial pet foods, not because it is appropriate for your pet to eat, but because it is far cheaper than using meat or even meat derivatives. It is a filler, designed to add bulk to the product at very little cost. These foods often only have the minimum requirements in terms of protein and fat, require the addition of synthetic vitamins to increase the nutritional value of the food and are heavily over processed, sometimes even stuffed full of preservatives and colourants.
