If you read our previous article on dangerous ingredients that are often found in pet foods, then you’re aware of the fact that the FDA puts little regulation on pet food. They don’t take our pet’s dietary needs very seriously, and it has led to numerous pet owners experiencing heartbreaking situations where their animals needlessly suffered. On a brighter note, raw diets are a great way to prevent your pet from ingesting harmful ingredients.
Fresh Dog Food Brands
Providing healthy meal options for your dog doesn’t have to mean that you’re chopping every ingredient in your kitchen after growing it in your backyard. Be mindful of the brands that you’re supporting and you’re already on the right track to doing what is best for your pup! There are a few companies on the market that offer fresh dog food. Check out The Farmer’s Dog, Instinct, and Ollie just to name a few. If you decide to purchase from a fresh dog food brand instead of making your pet’s food at home due to time constraints, make sure you support a company that uses high-pressure processing. High-pressure processing is a pathogen-reduction process that is not a requirement across all raw pet food, but it ensures safety and quality in the food.
Raw Pet Diets
Raw diets mean more animal-based protein and fewer by-products. In addition to fewer by-products, less processing means better digestion and nutrient absorption for your pets. Science continually shows the positive impacts of a raw diet, such as reducing a pet's likelihood of developing certain health conditions. Research has also shown that feeding as little as 20% raw can reduce the risk of skin allergies. Your animal’s health and wellness is important.
Choose responsible pet brands like James Naturals that provide food and treats that are wholesome and nutritious. Raw diets are the way to go if you want to see your furry friend have more energy, a healthier coat, and less of a chance of dietary sensitivities.
