When humans ingest vegetables and wholesome meats they see a significant increase in their overall health and energy levels. The same thing happens when we feed our pets raw diets. Did you realize just how many health benefits there are to offering your cats and dogs raw diets?
Side effects of processed foods
Pet parents who feed their animals kibble without researching the additives and by-products in the food are likely to see a number of side effects. Bloating, gas, loose stools, low energy levels, and lack of interest in mealtime are a few things you might see in your pet as a result of processed food. Their bad processed foods are similar to humans eating fast food. Skin sensitivities in pets are also a prominent side effect of processed foods.
Skin sensitivities due to diet
If your dog is suffering from an increased amount of shedding, then it can likely be traced back to its diet. The same can be said for cats- an increased amount of hairballs can be linked to a poor diet. As you can see, processed foods have a number of unpleasant effects that are less noticeable, but cause increased discomfort for your pet.
Switching your pet to a raw diet
If you’re looking to switch your pet to a raw diet, start slow. A significant change in diet can result in an upset stomach. Check out our blog post on raw diet options for pets to decide whether you want to make food at home or order from a company. We even suggested a few companies in that post that work hard to offer pet owners a safe raw diet option for their pets. If your pet frequently gets an upset stomach, it might be best to cook a few meals at home rather than investing in a large amount of food from a company right away.
