Switching a dog or cat with an existing health problem to a raw diet can often produce an improvement in their conditions. Among healthy pets, a raw diet is likely to help prevent some of the illnesses that are now common in many dogs. Most importantly, a high quality raw diet will help promote a long, healthy, and happy life for you and your companion animal.
Some of you may ask why We Feed Raw pet food is the best choice for your dog or cat. If we look closely at the teeth of dogs and cats, and the fact that dogs and cats are carnivores, we can develop a better understanding as to why pets fed raw are healthier overall. Every living being needs certain essential amino acids and enzymes in order to live a healthy life. For carnivores, these essential nutrients are found in raw meat.
The concept is simple: eating a minimally processed diet is the healthiest diet for any species. Dogs and cats have been bred for their looks, breed, and temperament, but their digestive tracts are still exactly the same as wolves and lions. A chihuahua and a wolf have the exact same dietary needs, despite their drastic difference in looks and temperament. The same applies to a cat and a lion.
Cooking kibble robs it of all the essential elements and makes it harder on a canine’s digestive system.
Kibble has been around for about 100 years. In that time there has been a drastic and continued increase of disease in our pet carnivores -- chronic degenerative diseases, auto-immune diseases, allergies, kidney, pancreatic and liver diseases, and cancer. These diseases are directly related to eating a processed diet that is species inappropriate. This was not an issue until the introduction of kibble.
Kibble is usually cooked in heats of excess of 212 degrees F, thereby destroying all the essential elements and making it harder on a canine's digestive system. Kibble pet food manufacturers add these elements back in, usually by spraying them on after the process. Many vitamins and minerals are depleted after being paired with so many preservatives in kibble. Spraying on a synthetic substance changes the whole structure and does not provide balance.
