8 reasons why you should try raw feeding recipes for your dog

Are you looking for the best dog food to keep your furry friend healthy and happy?

Are you tired of buying commercial dog food full of preservatives and additives? Raw feeding recipes for your dog might be what you need!

A raw food diet is a growing trend amongst pet owners, providing several benefits to our four-legged friends.

Not only is it a healthier option for your dog, but it can also offer a HUGE range of benefits (you can also see our raw feeding recipe books here)

8 health benefits of a raw food diet for dogs

1. Improved digestion

Raw feeding means your dog will take extra time to chew and consume food. When dogs take more time to process the food with their mouth, their bodies have time to release gastric juices.

This enables food to be better digested when it reaches the stomach. This can lead to better digestion and nutrient absorption, reducing the risk of digestive problems.

2. Increased energy levels

One of the big benefits of raw feeding for dogs is that when your pup feels good, it'll have more energy!

Switching to a high-quality raw pet food diet will mean your dog consumes fillers you find in most commercial kibble giving them more energy. After switching your dog to raw, you'll likely notice a new pep in their step.

3. Healthier skin and coat

Another one of the reasons to feed your dog a balanced diet full of vitamins and minerals that comes with a raw food diet is healthier skin and coat.

Feeding your dog raw food will give them plenty of essential fatty acids. This will give your pup that shiny coat and healthy skin that'll make them ready to shine! Read here how Hugo got a SUPER shiny coat

4. Reduced allergies

Many dog owners are finding that their precious pups are developing more and more allergies.

These allergies can be painful and uncomfortable for your pup and costly for you, so preventing or reducing them is a win-win. Whether it's food allergies or allergies to grass or dust, switching to raw will help. 

5. Improved dental health

Dental health is a big part of maintaining your dog's overall health as they grow from puppy to adult dogs.

Many pet owners find one of the significant health benefits of raw feeding is the benefit to their dog's dental health. Especially if you're including raw meaty bones, you'll save money on paying for dental cleanings for your pup.

6. Better weight management 

Ensuring your dog eats a biologically appropriate raw food diet is one of the best ways to help manage your pet's weight.

Avoiding the fillers, carbs and fats in commercial pet food will reduce the risk of obesity and other weight-related issues. Read Hodge's raw feeding story here
