What Is Raw?

Raw food for dogs is simply fresh, whole foods that are uncooked and minimally processed. Meats and greens that are fresh, uncooked and wild make up the diet that dogs and cats evolved to eat. It’s what canine species in the wild still eat.

Raw food is more easily absorbed and contains vital naturally occurring enzymes and vitamins that cooking destroys. Living foods that are unprocessed, fresh and whole enable our pets to thrive. And it’s the diet that lets dogs be their happiest and healthiest.

Fun fact: Humans are actually the only species to cook their food — and while your loving pups may be like family, that doesn’t mean they should eat like we do!

History of Raw Food

“Dogs and cats are by nature carnivores. Kitties are obligate carnivores. Dogs are scavenging carnivores” ~ Dr. Karen Becker

In fact, until 65 or so years ago, our domestic pets ate what we did, usually in the form of leftovers and table scraps. Dry, pelletized pet foods—kibble—was unknown until the mid 20th century.

Convenience and marketing, rather than animal health, drove the growth of the commercial pet food industry as we know it. Now, many vets are making the connection between pet disease and diet, just as healthcare professionals have shown us how our own dietary choices affect our health, and our companion animals suffer with obesity, cancer, arthritis, diabetes and many other human diseases.
