We’ve been feeding our dogs a raw food diet for the last 4 months with great results. Our dogs have enjoyed eating two types of Bravo Pet Foods Raw Dog Food: Bravo Blends (Frozen Raw- thaw, measure, feed) & Homestyle Completes (Freeze Dried Raw- measure, rehydrate, feed)
A raw food diet for dogs has been designed to replicate the diet of their ancestors. When wolves hunt, they eat the entire animal, and this is exactly what a raw food diet entails: meat, bones, organs. Raw food diets for dogs can take many forms: from feeding all of these aforementioned parts individually, to having them served in a ‘ground’ form in which the organs & bones have been ground into the meat- and often mixed with veggies, vitamins & minerals too.
Benefits of Switching to Raw Food:
- improved digestion
- better skin & coat health
- better oral health/breath
- improved vigor/energy
- immune system support
- healthier body mass
- decreased stool
Now naturally, when it comes to feeding your pet raw food, you’ve got to practice food safety. It’s no different than the food safety practices you employ when cooking meat for yourself in your home, so happily, it’s a skill you probably already possess.
Many pet parents don’t like the idea of their dog eating raw food, or don’t want to store/serve raw food. That’s why freeze-dried raw food was invented, and it’s a lifesaver! Simply add water to re-hydrate, and serve. I personally enjoy feeding the freeze dried raw for the convenience, and also the fact that I can see all the chunks of meat, veggies, and fruits that the pups are enjoying.
Where are you on the raw food journey? Are you in the research phase, testing phase, or full on raw feeding? Have your pets ever tried Bravo Pet Foods?
