Raw dog food is quickly becoming one of the most popular nutritional options for pet owners because of its numerous advantages. As humans, we increasingly choose natural, unprocessed meals for ourselves and our families; thus, our dogs deserve the same. This blog is an analysis of the main benefits of raw dog food diets.
Benefits of Raw Dog Food Diets
- Better dental health
Feeding raw food can greatly improve the dental health of a dog. Feeding your dog raw bones like duck necks and marrowbones can greatly slow the plaque formation process. The majority of commercially available dry dog foods are high in sweet and starchy carbohydrates, which can lead to dental plaque.
- Enhances digestion
The complex organs, processes, and activities of the body rely on the digestive system’s absorption of nutrients. The importance of proper digestion to overall health and well-being cannot be overstated. Raw food diets are beneficial to a dog’s digestive health. The acidity, bacteria, and small size of a dog’s stomach are all more suited to digesting the meat and bones included in a raw dog food diet than they are to process the sugars and chemicals found in processed meals. Ingesting these components may lead to gastric fermentation, stress on internal organs, and even inflammation. Feeding of natural raw dog food diets is the best way to ensure your dog has a healthy digestive tract.
- Healthy skin and coat
Raw food diets are high in Omegas and great for promoting healthy fur and skin. Apart from improving the skin’s health, feeding your dog raw food will also lessen the likelihood of your dog developing dermatitis due to food allergies. By adjusting to a natural diet, we have seen hundreds of dogs with chronic skin disorders completely improve.
- Weight management
Many pet owners are now switching to a raw or natural diet for their dogs to control their pet’s weight. The good news is that this really works. Many commercial dog feeds are mostly composed of fillers high in calories and carbohydrates, typically fortified with additives to increase the dog’s desire for more of the food despite its lack of nutritional value.
- Improvements in resistance to illnesses
It is valid to argue that a dog’s immune system and internal organs would perform better when given food as nature intended. Given that 70 percent of the immune system is housed in the gut, it stands to reason that providing your dog with a diet rich in raw, natural foods will improve its immunological function.
