If you’re the type of pet parent who reads the ingredient list of your pup’s food to make sure you know and understand exactly what’s in it, then you’ve no doubt heard about the growing movement toward raw feeding through social media channels or through the media, such as through the viral documentary Pet fooled. Once rejected by seemingly all veterinarians, a raw diet is now accepted in holistic veterinary circles.
It makes sense: a raw diet is what your pup would have eaten in the wild. He may not be a wolf (my fur baby is a chihuahua), but his digestive system is built much the same way. Even if you’re convinced (and you’re not easily convinced), switching to a raw diet is easier said than done, right?
Switching to a raw diet is anything but easy. Once you think about it, a number of questions arise. Where can you get affordable, good quality raw meat? Will your dog eat that specific type of meat? How do you store the meat if you can’t go to the store that often?
It can be so intimidating that you give up completely and postpone the switch. However, there is an easy way to get your dog started on a raw diet. Just start supplementing with raw foods. The easiest way to get raw meat into your pup’s diet is with Project Paws™ Protein Boost Food Mixers, which are 100% raw quality freeze-dried meat chunks that your dog will love. Just mix some into your pup’s food and he’ll happily scarf it down.
There are a few different camps when it comes to which fruits and vegetables are actually good for dogs, if at all. Normally, apples, raw carrots, green beans, cucumbers, oranges, peas and pears are considered very good for your pup. However, it’s a good idea to educate yourself further on what is good for your pet to eat and check with your vet if you’re unsure!
Why not give it a try with your pup’s next meal?
