Dogs on a raw food diet are naturally healthier, happier, and more
energetic. However, buying raw food for dogs can be a challenge to
some dog owners since there are several considerations to keep in mind.
First, when buying raw diet food for dogs, make sure the food is human
grade food or fit for human consumption. This means it is the
highest quality raw food available. Making sure that everything is
fresh and safe to eat is one of the keys to success when following
the raw food feeding model.
Next, make sure you buy organic fruits and vegetables. Organic
fruits and vegetables are grown without pesticides or insecticides
or any growth enhancers. This means the product is all natural and
good for your dog.
Fruits and vegetables which are not grown the organic way
is not ideal because the traces of pesticides and chemicals
used on non-organically raised product can be ingested by your dog
and lead to health problems. Even if you wash the fruit and
vegetables, pesticides and chemicals are not completely removed
from the product.
Be sure you purchase your meat from a reliable butcher who takes
his product from a farm which does not use growth stimulants for
their livestock. Like fruits and vegetables that are not grown in
an organic manner, meats with growth stimulants is not an ideal
raw food for pets. These stimulants can give your dog health
problems or create unnatural growth in your dog.
