BENEFITS OF FEEDING RAW

Here at Pooch Palate, we strive to give your pet the best food, and in order to achieve that we stock only the best raw food, treats, supplements and products.

As a dog owner myself, I know that our furry friends are part of the family and we need to give them the food they deserve to have a happy and healthy life. 

The Raw Food products are manufactured to mimic the natural diet of our dogs by using biologically appropriate raw foods consisting of 85% meat, bones and organs, 15% vegetables and fruit. Small amounts of fresh garlic and kelp is added.

Our Complementary Range is suitable for both dogs and cats as they do not contain any fruit and vegetables.

WHAT DOES RAW MEAN?

  • RAW is an acronym for RAW APPROPRIATE FOOD.

  • The RAW Food Diet mimics the natural diet of our dogs by using biologically appropriate raw foods consisting of  meat, organ meat, bones, fruit and vegetables.

  • Our Raw Food products are based off of the B.A.R.F. diet

WHY RAW FOOD?

  • Quite simply nature did not intend for dogs to eat cooked food, their ancestors hunted and killed their food.

  • Nature’s balanced and nutritious diet was delivered by eating the entire carcass consisting of: the skin, meat and organs, bones and stomach content.

SO WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

Cooking dog food renders it biologically inappropriate as:

  • It loses much of its nutritional value

  • Loses enzymes and biologically active essential fatty acid  which when damaged by heat and oxygen, slowly poison the system, doing irreparable damage

  • Cooking also produces carcinogens and anti-immunogens

  • Many minerals, essential amino acids and vitamins become indigestible
