Raw is Right!

The world is flat. Doctors using leeches. Smoking is okay for you. Dark Ages stuff, eh? But unless you feed your cat or dog a raw diet, that's were the rest of the pet food category comfortably rests. In the dark ages.

Think about it: take meat from God knows where, process it till it's hard and dry as a desert stone. Then add carbohydrated fillers, additives and preservatives and your dog, your best friend, a dependent creature whose entire quality of life depends 100% on you. Why would you make him eat that manufactured concoction?

Poor dog. Poor choice.

Now let's think about it and give the benefit of the doubt to every questionable ingredient in this bag of dog food. Even if every piece of that kibble it contains all the protein, carbs and vitamins your dog needs to thrive, it's still 100% artificial, 0% natural.

Now put yourself in that same place: Say doctors and scientists developed a dry cereal that contained every vitamin, protein and carb you needed to thrive: would you eat it day in, day out if you had the option to eat a 100% natural diet of meat, fish and fresh produce?

...Thought so, you wouldn't consider it for a second. So why do it to your best friend? You have the choice to give your dog the best possible food, to feed him a 100% natural diet. Choose right, choose raw!

Big Bones Are Better
Thursday, 12 November 2015 16:14


Size doesn't matter, at least when we are discussing dog bones. Many people are under the misconception that a small dog should chew on a small bone and a large dog should chew on a large bone. I can understand the logic behind this, but in my books, big is usually better. 
Think about it: have you ever seen carnivores in the wild feasting on neat little portions? Of course not, they typically will dine on a carcass of a large animal like a deer or elk. When they eat this way, they work harder to get their meal, ripping, crunching and tearing flesh and bone. When they finish, they will rest for long periods digesting the meal.
But my point is that the prey is almost always larger than the dog. So if for for example, you feed your Yorkie a mega bone, it's quite natural for him to work on something of that size. He probably won't finish it in one feeding, but he can get back to it as many times as it takes for him to consume that bone. it becomes his pet project, an activity that keeps him occupied. 
It's also a lot more fun than demolishing a small bone in one shot. So think big for your dog and treat him with a mega bone. 
Give Your Dog a Break
Wednesday, 11 November 2015 16:42
What do you do when you realize that you don't like your dog? The sad reality is that it happens, owners give up and then give away their dogs.
I think that's wrong. Would you give away your kid just because he or she gets into a lot of trouble? Of course not, you'd try to deal with the problem, seek counselling or adjust your way of parenting. And you should do the same type of thing with your dog, speak to a trainer, your breeder or maybe just the local dog park maven. A dog's behavior can be changed with some patience and the right approach.
Unlike humans, dogs don't get caught up in the past, they live in the moment. With the right training, you can erase your turbulent past with your dog and renew and revitalize your relationship with him. He's build to please and if you give him that chance, you won't be dissappointed.
Raw Diet Portion Sizes Can Vary

I think that people get too caught up with portion size. They weigh meals and give their pets the exact same portion size for every serving. I have nothing against measuring portion sizes and giving your pet the recommended serving, but it's not something I would get obsessed over. I mean think about it, do you eat the exact same amount of food for every meal?  Sometimes I'm hungrier than usual, other days I may not feel like eating much, (although unfortunately those days are rare). 
So let's say that your dog had a heavy day at the dog park, or was running all day in the country, he'll be hungrier and you could feed him more. And if he had a lazy day and didn't burn too many calories, than you could probably feed him less. At the end of the week though, it should even out. Just remember, they're dogs, not machines and like us, their food intake will vary. As long as you're feeding them a wide variety of protein and organ meats, along with a healthy dose of veggies, they'll be okay.
Starting Your Cat on Raw
Tuesday, 03 November 2015 20:36


I've noticed cats and dogs starting out on raw diets take to it in different ways. Most dogs dive into their new raw diet with gusto, while cats tend to take a bit longer. I always tell the cat owner getting into raw for the first time that it takes patience. Some cats have taken up to a couple of months to slowly transition, but once they're on it, there's no looking back.

While most dogs love to eat raw when it's frozen - it gives them a much better chew, cats tend to like it better semi or completely thawed. My theory is that cats like to tear their meat while dogs are more of the grinder type. Cats, like dogs, also have their own preferences for certain meats, although most seem to love chicken. Some like red meats, others fish, every cat is different.

Like I said, it all comes down to the individual cat's preference. So while it may take a bit longer to get your cat on a raw diet, the benefits make it worth the effort. The raw diet will hydrate them better and help ward off pancreatitis and crystals in their intestines. The raw diet is also easier on the system, since there are no artificial preservatives or additives to process, just natural meat. Remember that your little tabby is actually more of a carvivore than a dog, so feed him in a biologically appropriate way and give him what he deserves.

What's so great about green tripe, especially considering that it doesn't exactly smell like roses? That said, dogs and cats love tripe, and we're in love by how beneficial it is for them.

Tripe is great for dogs in many ways, including helping with digestion, easing constipation and promoting a healthy appetite.

Here’s the lowdown on tripe: It’s the stomach of grazing animals like bison, cows or sheep. It contains helpful enzymes chock full of good bacteria and amino acids that aid in the digestion of dogs and cats. That boost kicks in to improve a dog's immune system, keeping them strong and healthy.
