Why Raw

Raw food is what nature intended for dogs, after all that is how they ate their food many many years ago until humans created the kibble. ​ The raw community and kibble feeders are divided and that is because we all love our pets and we all have very strong opinions but the truth is that dogs were once scavengers and they ate raw prey and plants. Even the wolf ate blueberries where food was scarce. So what have we learnt from this?

 ​Quite simply cats and dogs really thrive on eating raw food. Some Veterinarians are making the connection between diet and health, and quite similar to doctors who advise people that diet is important to keep their hearts healthy and overall well being in tip top shape. Dogs and cats should not be treated any different when it comes to having a balanced diet and a diet with diversity.

 Raw food is beneficial to any pets diet. The only time a dog or cat may need cooked food is due to a health condition and advised by a vet.

The processing of kibble involves the rendering of food to approximately 270 degrees. At a crucial time of processing, minerals and vitamins are added. At this point the rendering begins again and ultimately many of those vitamins and minerals we look for on a packet have lost their full minimum essentials.

There are even fad pet food companies cooking food for pets, a clever marketing portal in attracting pet owners however, once you cook food for pets, all those vital nutrients that are found in raw food are mostly lost once cooked, so really the benefit has been taken away. Admittingly there are some dogs that cannot eat raw and due to a very sensitive stomach these dogs may require to eat partially cooked foods. Kibble is convenient to purchase and keep on hand when needed however when pet owners are buying the cheapest bag of kibble to save money, those nasty ingredients should be read on the label. There's alot of nasties in those bags and the first 5 ingredients actually make the kibble! Kibble should start with protein such as : Chicken or Lamb or Beef or Salmon etc.

Remember, the first five ingredients is what mostly makes kibble. If you are choosing kibble made in other countries other then Australia, most of those brands have been recalled over and over again. That is something to consider when choosing kibble. Please choose Australian Brands.

Did you know once you open a bag of kibble, if kibble is not consumed within 2 weeks, the kibble in the bag becomes rancid? Exposure to air and humidity can speed up the rate at which dog foods degrade. As fats and proteins break down in air/moisture, they become rancid, and are at risk for bacterial contamination. If you cannot transition to a 100% raw diet then please limit the use of kibble and think of kibble merely as fibre for your dog. 'How can we possibly tell you kibble is nutritional? Raw food may not cure every pet health problem but where there is a fulfilment of a better quality of well being then we must be more open to the diversity of foods available for our pets.' The Rendering Process is not what it seems to be. If you have ever walked into a pet grade meat manufacturing facility, the bad smell is quite overwhelming.

K9 Rawsome meals are all hand crafted and using first grade cuts of human grade ingredients. When it comes to pet nutrition, it's not rocket science but there is certainly some great science behind it, kibble, raw foods, methods and percentages. IE: specific levels of protein, fat, minerals, and vitamins, depending on the life stage of the dog and breed. To prove they are healthy, foods must either be made from a recipe that meets certain nutritional requirements, or they must be put through a special feeding trial etc. We trial all our products. Our goal is to help as many pet owners especially where all else has failed or if you are wanting to transition slowly to BARF (Biologically Appropriate Raw Food). K9 Rawsome is trend setting the Australian Pet Food Industry.

A good raw diet can contribute to a long and healthy life and even psychological well-being for our pets. There is a difference between Thriving and Surviving. A raw diet for pets is the best way to ensure your pet is getting nothing but the freshest and most nutritious foods.
