Recipe: Healthy Raw Diet for Dogs

The raw dog food diet is one of the most controversial feeding methods.

Opinions are mixed on whether or not the diet is safe or if it could lead to diseases caused by the bacteria found in raw food.

This healthy raw diet for dogs won't be suitable for all pups, so be sure to check with you veterinarian before feeding it to your pet.

Before we dive in, I wanted to ask you, are you currently feeding your dog commercial dog food?

Is your dog having skin problems, ear infections, lack of energy, or other stomach problems?

Or maybe they aren't that old and are having other health complications. Now some breeds are more susceptible to health issues, but it could be another reason.

It could be their diet. In fact, it most of the time is their diet.

Well, commercial dry dog food is the equivalent to fast food. It's mostly cheap, accessible, ultra-processed food.

I know we all go get some fast food every now and then, I am guilty of it. But imagine if you ate that every day.

You would start to feel awful.

And unfortunately our dog's can't speak, so they always “seem” to be fine and enjoy their food.

They eat it because commercial dog food companies add flavoring and dyes back in once the kibble has been processed to make it more interesting and enticing for your dog.

Well, we have put together a course to teach our readers how to make and prepare homemade dog food!

Now you may be thinking, woah what's the point that sounds like a lot of effort. “They do fine on this brand!” “My last dog lived till 15 on Hill's Science why would I switch”.

Great points, but you would never know if they could have lived longer or had a healthier end of their life.

Well no need to doubt because we have living proof.

In fact, we recently interviewed a woman who has been cooking food for their dog for 20+ years!

She has a mastiff that is 15 years old.

Just so you know, the average lifespan of mastiffs are between 6-12 years.

She even said that all of her littermates have already passed on and some of the litter of her littermates have passed on as well.

The course will change your life, but most importantly change your dog's life.

The raw dog food diet is based on the natural diet of wild dogs (your dog's ancestors), which consists of the prey they catch and the stomach contents of those animals.

Most people think of raw protein sources when it comes to this diet choice, but there's a lot more to it than that.

Wild dogs eat grass and other plants.

The stomach contents of their prey contains a variety of plants.

That's why a raw dog food diet must contain a balanced amount of meat, fruits and vegetables.
