Benefits of a Raw Diet for your dog!

I was lucky enough to meet with a pooch over at K9 Natural who filled me in on the benefits of a raw diet. Here’s what my new pal had to bark about:

A natural, raw diet provides your dog with nutrition it needs to thrive, the way nature intended – here is a checklist of the ultimate dog food and why a raw diet is so great.  Does the food you feed your dog tick these 8 boxes?

1. Tastes Great - Dogs should love their food!  30% of dog owners say their dogs don't love their food.  This doesn't need to be the case.

2.  Complete and Balanced -A complete product should provide all the nutrients your dog requires.  Well balanced food will deliver these nutrients in the right ratios.  For example, the calcium to phosphorus ratio must be correct to ensure dogs absorb the nutrients.  Check the label to see if the manufacturer claims the food is "Complete AND Balanced".  K9 Natural insists nutrients are in their natural state, they have a simple philosophy - don't mess with Mother Nature!

3.  High Protein - The major component of the food needs to be meat.  This provides protein to build muscle help boost energy levels.  The result is a lean strong dog with a well-developed endurance base, plus a much reduced risk of injury and rate of fatigue.

4. Balanced Natural Fat -Natural fat is the energy source for your dog.  Increasing the natural fat in your dog's diets will improve the condition of their skin and coat.  Think of fat as a moisturiser from within.  Well-nourished skin equals no dry, itchy spots, less dandruff, better hair growth and a coat that gleams with good health.

5. No Starchy Carbohydrates - Research states dogs have no requirement for carbohydrates, although the majority of dog foods contain 50% carbohydrates.  Highly processed starchy carbohydrates like rice, wheat and corn are easily converted to body fat and are difficult for dogs to digest.  K9 Natural believes dogs need just a small quantity of slow release carbohydrates from sustained energy releasing macronutrients such as fresh seasonal vegetables and fruits.

 6. High Digestibility - Food needs to be easily digested to provide optimum nourishment.  The best indicator of digestibility is the stools.  You shouldn't be picking up large smelly tools as this suggests your dog isn't digesting a lot of what it is eating.  The stools should be small, firm and low in odour. 

7. Natural Nutrients - Nutrients need to be kept in their natural state all the way to the dogs bowl for the goodness to remain intact and available.  Pet foods that are produced using heat processing, artificial forming agents, additives and preservatives, compromise nutrient delivery.

8.  High Moisture Content -A good level of moisture in your dog's food ensures hydration.  A dehydrated dog is susceptible to kidney and urinary problems.  Dogs eating kibble need to drink a lot of water to supplement the lack of moisture in their diet.
