The big issue with raw dog food

If you are planning on feeding your dog raw dog food then you need to read this.

One of the MOST important points on raw dog food and raw feeding your dog is that you are feeding them a balanced diet that meet the AAFCO standards.

If you don’t do this (many owners think that feeding raw means giving a pack of raw meat and it absolutely does NOT mean this) then it can lead to severe nutritional deficiencies which can have major impacts on your dog’s health and is the number 1 reason many experts are nervous around raw dog food diets.

This is why it is so important to feed pet nutritionist created recipes that meet AAFCO standards and we cannot state this enough.

Raw dog food recipes

This is why at Healthy Active Pet we have invested SO HEAVILY in our raw dog food recipe programs and books.

All our food and ALL our recipes are formulated by our pet nutritionist to meet the AAFCO standards for adult dogs.

And if you don’t know what AAFCO standards are - they are the industry standards in Australia and much of the world for the nutritional requirements of our pets, and it’s generally what people are referring to when they say a food is “complete and balanced.” It’s sort of like the recommended daily intake for people.

So if you are keen on feeding raw - please check out our AAFCO standard raw dog food recipes.

Is a raw dog food diet good

Yes a raw dog food diet is good because it’s the way nature intended for them to eat.

Modern pet food doesn’t resemble anything even vaguely like what our dogs and cats would eat if they had any say in it, and they’ve never been fatter or sicker for it.

A raw food diet supports their health and wellbeing by providing a steady stream of highly digestible and bioavailable macronutrients, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, antioxidants and water to ensure your pet thrives, not just survives.
