The Benefits of a Raw Diet For Pets

Jan 22, 2016

Healthy Spot was started with raw pet foods in mind. Dogs and cats are naturally carnivores and while they may survive off a kibble diet, they’re unlikely to be thriving on it. If you are considering upgrading your pet's diet then you will want to read this article on the benefits of the raw diet for pets. 


It's Natural 

It’s more natural to your pet. Dogs and cats are carnivores and their digestive systems are intended for diets where they get their nourishment from the raw meat, bones and organs of other animals. A raw diet helps optimize nutrient absorption.


It's Healthier 

It promotes better health and that means less trips to the vet. A raw diet also lessens the chances of your dog developing diseases like diabetes. Food allergies are also easier to avoid given the minimal added ingredients and filler in raw foods. It may also lessen the effects of chronic degenerative diseases, auto-immune diseases, kidney, pancreatic and liver disease.


Your Pets Will Thrive 

They’ll look better! Pets fed a kibble diet often have a coat that feels greasy to the touch and looks dull in appearance.  With a raw diet you can expect your pet's coat to improve and be softer and shinier while being less oily.


Your Pet Will Be Fit

Better weight management and less bloating. Kibble is loaded with grains and other filler that promotes gas build up. Raw diets feature healthy enzymes that help digest food and reduce the amount of bloating in dogs.


Less Smells!

Since there’s less filler, your pets will be absorbing and utilizing more of the food they eat which leads to less coming out the other end. And it’ll smell less! And their breath will be fresher too. No more dog/cat breath during snuggle sessions.

My Gracie loves her raw diet! She’s on frozen venison, rabbit and duck duck goose. I rotate the food so she doesn’t get bored. She has food allergies, the exotic foods have had a positive impact on her allergies. ?
