The Benefits of a Raw Diet For Your Pet

May 19, 2022

Have you ever considered a raw diet for your pet? If so, you are on the right track to feeding them a diet that best aligns with their instinctive eating habits. Healthy Spot started with raw pet foods in mind. Dogs and cats are natural carnivores and while a kibble diet may be a good solution for many pets, a raw diet offers so many more benefits. Elevate your pet's bowl and continue reading this article to learn how a raw food diet can benefit your dog or cat's health! 

Benefits Of A Raw Diet For Your Pup

1. It's Natural 
A raw diet offers the most natural ingredients for your pets. Our pets are carnivores and their digestive systems depend on diets where they get their nourishment from the raw meat, bones and organs of other animals. The natural ingredients help aid healthy digestion and optimizes nutrient absorption.

2. Raw Food Is Healthier
Raw diets promote better and improved overall health, which is likely to significantly reduce trips to the vet. Feeding raw also reduces the risk of serious health conditions and diseases like diabetes. It may also lessen the effects of chronic degenerative diseases, auto-immune diseases and kidney, pancreatic and liver diseases. Additionally, food allergies are easier to avoid due to the minimal ingredients and filler added to raw foods.

3. Raw Diets Support A More Active Lifestyle
Raw diets are calorie-dense and easy to digest for pets, allowing smaller feeding portions and higher energy levels. Kibble is loaded with grains and other filler that promotes gas build-up. Raw diets are better for weight management and feature healthy enzymes that help digest food and reduce the amount of bloating in dogs.

4. Your Pets Will Thrive
Your pet will look better and healthier with a raw diet. An improper diet can result in dry skin, itchiness, shedding and inflammation. With a raw diet, you can expect nutrients that support and improve your pet's skin, coat and dental hygiene, making them softer and shinier while being less oily. Plus, because raw food closely mimics your pet's instinctive eating habits, pawrents are more likely to find the perfect recipe to increase their pet's mealtime excitement!

5. Fewer Smells!
Since there is less filler and additives in raw food ingredients, your pets will be absorbing and utilizing more of the food they eat which leads to less coming out the other end - which results in a less smelly situation! Plus, the enzymes in raw foods fight against bacteria that cause bad breath, resulting in less stinky breath during snuggle sessions.

At Healthy Spot, we know that your dogs and cats are more than just pets - they’re family. We believe that the raw diet for pets is one of the best diet options, which is why we've been advocates of the raw diet ever since we opened. Stop by your local Spot and speak with a team member to find a raw food option that best fits your pet's needs to help them thrive!

Loved reading this article/post! It confirmed for me, as a new pet owner, that I’ve been feeding my little fur-baby right! He loves the raw diet I spend a lot a money on at Healthy Spot – I see it more of an investment now. Thank you!
