Why Moisture Content is Crucial for Your Cat or Dog
Friday, 06 March 2015 16:17

One of the aspects of raw feeding that I like the most is the flow of hydration that it provides to the cat or dog. Understand that like us, a cat or dog's body is approximately 70% water. This just happens to be the same moisture content of a raw diet, a feeding equilibrium if you will.
This means that with each bite that your pet eats, his system is being hydrated evenly and naturally. This is an area of a balanced diet that the experts never seem to address. You'll see so-called dry food vet diets on the market that claim to deliver every vitamin, protein and fatty acid that a cat or dog needs in order to thrive, yet at the end of day the moisture content of that food will inevitably be under 10%.
Consequently your pet will have to compensate the lack of moisture in this diet by lapping up bowls of water, something that felines and canines do not intuitively do in the wild. Consider that the origins of the domestic cat are based in the desert where moisture was almost exclusively derived from their prey. Think of how wolves eat: They take down their prey somewhere in the forest or on the open plains and then feed on the carcass. You don't ever see them dragging their catch to the closest creek so they can wash down their meal with water. 
As we age, (and the same applies to cats and dogs), the moisture content of our bodies drops, ultimately to somewhere in the vicinty of the mid 60% range. This shows us the link between vitality and the water content of a mammalian body. Think about it: Doesn't a raw diet make total sense? And to that dear friends, I urge you to, "Choose life, choose raw!" 
Green Tripe, the Ultimate Food
Tuesday, 03 February 2015 20:24
Any advanced raw feeder will tell you that green tripe is essential to your cat or dog's diet. That said, (and I suggest you do the research and see for yourself), most pet owners have no clue what green tripe is and why it's so good for cats and dogs. This is why I thought it would be a good idea to give you the quickie lowdown on this super-food.
Green tripe is basically the stomach of the cow or bison or whatever livestock animal we are talking about. The 'green' part of it is the digested food that is still in the stomach. While it doesn't sound too appealing for most of us, for cats and dogs green tripe is a veritable feast. Better yet, they go wild for the taste!
But it's the nutritional merits of this product that make it so beneficial for your pet. Think of green tripe as natural probiotically treated dietary fiber that helps your pet digest his food better, while also delivering a host of other nutritional benefits. Wild canines and felines are green tripe eaters  when they eat their prey's stomach and regurgitated contents. Green tripe is as natural a food to them as is fresh meat. It's also chewy and fun for them to eat. Need I also mention that tripe cleans their teeth while they chew?
I'm not going to get into the details of what makes green tripe such an amazing food. Like I said, there's a ton of information out there that will explain to you about its benefits far better than I could ever do. The key point I want to make is that green tripe should be an integral part of creating a balanced natural diet for your cat or dog. Try it, although I warn you in advance, it is a tad stinky, at least for us humans. But when you see your cat or dog going at it like it's his last meal, you will understand that you are onto a good thing.

Big Bones - A Dog's Best Friend
Monday, 19 January 2015 20:55


Bones are a dog's best friend. They nourish him, clean his teeth and provide him with untold hours of fun.

The first thing you need to know is never to give your pooch a cooked bone which can break or splinter and potentially harm him. Raw bones are fine, he can crush softer bones like chicken or lamb and gnaw to his heart's content on tasty beef marrow bones.

But here's something that most dog owners don't get: the benefits of a crazy big-ass bone. I'm talking stuff like a beef or bison knuckle bone or neck bone. They're humongous - even cut ones can weigh anywhere between 2 - 3 pounds, so yes, they can be messy. Of course if you throw the bone outside to your dog that won't be an issue. You can also feed your dog the bone in his crate and all you'll have to do is a quick wipe up after the chew-down.

Once you've covered the mess part, think about how close to a natural feeding this will be for your dog. He'll have to work for his meal and will derive far more pleasure from the feeding than eating from a bowl. When I'm away for a while and my dog is alone, it's always mega bone time. I know that a great big bison neck bone will keep him busy for hours. The problem with most pet owners is that we've humanized our dogs too much, we feed them like humans and want everything neat and ordered and that's wrong. Let your dog have some fun. Throw him a big-ass bone and you'll know what I mean. It's the way canines were born to eat!

Raw Diet Best Guard Against Pancreatitis & Urinary Problems for Cats
Monday, 12 January 2015 14:04
I was having a conversation the other day with one of our customers, a vet by the way, who was commiserating about the prevelance these days of cats afflicted  pancreatitis and urinary issues.
"Most of the time, you can attribute it to a dry food diet," she said. "Wild cats do not drink water. They derive their moisture from the prey they eat. Remember, the origin of the domestic cat is from the desert where there's basically no water. When a cat eats dry food, it doesn't know that it needs to drink water to maintain an equilibrium within its system. Consequently they develop crystals in their urinary tracts or pancreatitis over the long term. People need to understand that cats are natural raw meaters."
This vet also happens to be a cat owner who shares her home with three kitties (and a couple of dogs).
"I see it with my cats," she says. "The only time I've ever seen them drink water is when I let them outside where they might drink from a puddle. But when I leave out a bowl of water in my home, they won't touch it. It's something that is just not intuitive for them."
A raw diet however, is intuitive for a cat which still has a lot of 'wild' in them compared to dogs. For example, all dogs are not hunters, the vast majority in fact have been bred not to kill, (exception terriers). But almost all cats will hunt, kill and eat their prey whole if they are given the chance. Given the choice do you think a cat would rather eat commercial cat food or a small rodent or bird? I think you know the answer.
Safeguard the health of your cat by feeding it a raw diet.
How to Get Your Dog to Eat

dog not eating
If it's one thing that I find hard to accept, it's a dog that's a picky eater. When a meal is presented to a dog, he should basically attack it with passion. Understand that a wild canine's life revolves around hunting and eating food. It's their most basic instinct. Granted, the domesticated dog doesn't face the same challenges that the wild canine does, but the instinct to eat in order survive is just as strong. To be fair, dogs have evolved considerably and considering that they are the species with the most genetic defects, many of them legitimately have allergies or cannot eat anything in sight. That said, most of these allergies can be attributed to the extreme processing and filler of kibble, but that's another story. 
Anyhow, back to my story - I noticed that my dog DJ, had been very casual about his incredible meals and that bugged me. He shouldn't remind me of my kid in front of a plate of brocoli. After a few weeks of DJ's "I'll eat when I feel like it" attitude I got fed up. So instead of feeding him in the morning, I waited until the end of the day. That turned out to be a good idea. DJ ravaged his food. It also made me think that maybe I was feeding him too much, so I cut down on his portions. Like I always say, I never heard of a dog dying from hunger.
The upshot to all this is that if you're dog raises his nose at a meal, feed him a few hours later. Let his tummy grumble, let him appreciate the bountiful of food in his bowl. Like they say, timing is everything in life, even when it comes to feeding your dog.
A Dog With A Sophisticated Palate

Nora the Leonberger comes from a home where fine dining is a priority. Perhaps that's why Nora's sophisticated palate appreciates the flavors of the beef mixes with veggies and fruit.
