- Is a raw diet the key to canine and feline longevity?
You’ve more than likely seen a lot of “Hype” around “Raw Diets” over the last decade especially as social media has heightened awareness, I most definitely have, I've even decided to earn a living out of it! However there’s also a lot of “Hate“ for such diets, the majority of which are based on myths not facts being reinforced by the likes of the dry food manufacturers/veterinary bodies. So i just wanted to go over 3 popular myths about raw diets. 1. Raw meat makes dogs/cats nasty , once they’ve tasted blood they’ll become aggressive/feral. Well this one does have some context as to how this myth started because many owners who switch their dog/cat to a raw diet will witness something called “Resource Guarding” , this is a display of what can be seen as aggression to those uneducated on animal behaviour, let me explain: Scenario: Imagine you’re a dog and you’ve spent your life eating nothing but pot noodles , digestive biscuits and multivitamins while smelling succulent food being cooked by your owners , enough to make you drool, Then they give you a juicy raw steak, All your christmases have come at once, you’ll guard that moment and food with your life! so, you’ll put your hackles up and give that back off growl while curling your lips if they come close enough to take it from you! This is what owners are witnessing, which could be understandable scary at the time as their pet is acting out of character, but over time as their pet gets this food multiple times a day, the need to resource guard diminishes and so does the behaviour! So if you are transitioning over, give them space to eat! 2. Dogs and Cats need Dog and Cat food, they need complete and balanced meals every day to survive! This is another common myth and absolute hypocrisy on many levels, Commercial Dog and Cat foods are “balanced” (on paper) to a T with synthetic vitamins and minerals to achieve said balance, in fact the majority of the nutrition is synthetic! Processed and synthetic foods for health? Think about it... The hypocrisy comes from people and certain vets that have this view and feed/advocate to feed “complete dry foods” yet feed table scraps alongside (Who doesn’t? C’mon were all guilty of that), unbalancing the very food they feed and automatically become a hypocrite! If you’re doing this you might as well feed a varied fresh food diet to achieve balance over time. There isn’t one species in the wild that eats a “Complete and Balanced diet” everyday, in fact there’s only one species that cooks their food....No need to mention which. 3. Dogs and Cats can’t have raw meat , they’ll die of salmonella or E-Coli poisoning! This one is one I find most bizarre, purely because dry foods have also been found to contain salmonella and recalled for it? Yet the majority of dogs in the world eat a dry food diet, so why doesn’t the same argument apply? Also if this was really the biggest argument, then there's no reason why you can’t feed home cooked foods then, the key is fresh, Some dogs admittingly so aren’t suited to raw for various ailments such as leaky gut, however fresh home cooked meals are perfect! There really isn’t a reason not to provide your pets with whole fresh foods! So now we’ve covered the top 3, I've come across have you changed your mindset on how you see the raw diet? Feel free to ask me for a transition guide and how i can support you make the switch, it really isn’t that daunting but ever so rewarding! I also want to take this time to explain that there’s also a lot of myths for the benefits of raw diets / fresh food diets. Now when i say myths , I'm talking about the medical claims of what some say and in my view it’s false advertising! A raw or home cooked diet isn’t a magic pill, it might not “cure” your dog's issues however those diets are more appropriate to support your pets on a cellular level and reduce inflammation/blood sugar levels and both of those naturally reduce “disease markers” but the diet alone is not guarantee to fight cancer like i’ve seen some say, or make your pets live longer! It’s all about the bigger picture, their environment, diet, physical activity, psychological state, chemical exposure to name a few all play a part in longevity and they are all synergised and affect each other! Nutrition is an important factor because the diet is the easiest one an owner has the ability to control, the diet supports the Gut Microbiome to keep a healthy balance of bacteria, should this become unbalanced this is when you’ll start to see physical ailments or even behavioural issues as the gut also controls the central nervous system! If you're unsure on what raw pet food looks like, get in touch with us, we’ll gladly provide a free sample that you can even try your dog/cat on and take a copy of our transition guide with you!

- Some of our most asked questions about Raw.....
Our ethos is to only sell raw dog food diets that we feed our own dogs and only deal with companies that we know and trust. All the meat and fish products featured are from human grade sources. We appreciate that the subject of what to feed your four legged friend can be a very emotive one, and strongly encourage people to do their own research on the B.A.R.F. diet, with an open mind and reach their own conclusions. Dogs are incredibly versatile animals and can survive on all sorts of diets, whether they are cooked, raw or anywhere in between. Pet food is a minefield with so many options for us owners to choose from. We believe that a raw diet is the very best for your pets as this is what they were born to eat. As a small business we get to know most of our furry customers and we love that we can do this so we know their needs and what they enjoy. We are often asked the following questions:- Is my pets poo ok? White – This would suggest too much bone in the last meal (if it’s a one off) or if it’s a regular thing then in the diet in general. Runny – There are lots of reasons for runny poo. Initially your dog may be detoxing from the previous kibble diet, he/she may have picked up a bug or there may not be enough bone in their diet. If this happens regularly then it’s probably the latter and this needs to be addressed by adding more bone. Your pets poo should be small, firm and far less smelly than it was previously when kibble fed. This is one of the many joys of raw feeding. Much easier to pick up and far more pleasant to deal with. Can we add fruit & vegetable? Yes - please do. If you are unsure if dogs can have the item please always check. Can I mix the suppliers now my dog is raw fed? Yes - you can mix suppliers, proteins and add extras to your dogs meals. The 80-10-10 is a baseline to follow. Every pet is an individual so some may need more bone etc.... Trust your judgement you know your pet the best. My pet isn’t drinking as much - is this ok? Yes! A natural raw diet is made up of 80% meat. Most meats contain around 75% moisture and so are much more hydrating than kibble. So, yes, this is completely normal. Can I feed my dog whole bones? Yes - uncooked bones as great for dogs especially their teeth. The size of a bone that we would recommend really depends on the size of the dog. Large weight bearing bones are too much for your dogs teeth and they may crack. For smaller dogs we would recommend chicken necks, duck necks etc.. Medium to Large dogs we would recommend Turkey Necks, Marrowbone, Lamb necks etc Can I feed a mix of kibble & raw food? Our recommendation is no; that being said if that’s what you want to feed your pet then we pass no judgement on this. Mixing kibble with raw at the same feeding unless doing a temporary, slow transition. They each digest at different rates. Raw only takes 4-6 hours to digest while kibble takes 8-10 hours. If fed together, the kibble may slow down the digestive process, potentially causing the raw to be held in the digestive system for twice as long as it should be. This may create gas and other issues. If you want to continue feeding both raw and kibble, feed one in the morning and one at night so the raw has a chance to pass through before the digestive tract has to deal with the slower digesting kibble. There is no denying that the raw food diet for dogs and cats is fast becoming a much more popular choice for those seeking a healthy, happy and active pet. Humans are becoming more aware of the benefits of a raw and natural diet this enables them to see first hand the difference it makes. As always if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us. Stay safe. Raw Galore Ltd

BENEFITS OF A RAW DIET The best for your furry friends Here at Raw Galore Ltd we work on the principle that dogs and cats are carnivores designed to eat raw meat and bones. Before they were our pets they lived on a diet of raw food and chose their own natural supplements. This means that their teeth, jaw structures, stomach acid PH and digestive system were made for the products that we supply. A raw diet is a tasty, naturally nourishing and extremely beneficial diet for our beloved furry friends. A higher percentage of food is digested so less waste resulting in less frequent, smaller and less smelly poo. They benefit from shiny coats, fresher breath, cleaner teeth and most of all they are happier, healthier and more energetic. The natural raw diet ranges that we offer are beneficial to pets with sensitive digestive systems or food intolerances. Probiotics are fantastic for gut health and for getting your dog’s stomach ready to transition from a processed/kibble based diet to a fresh, raw diet. Specifically raw unpasteurised goats milk & Kefir are great probiotic and contains lots of lovely healthy bacteria to set your dog up well. These healthy bacteria also need feeding so it’s a good idea to add in some fresh fruit & vegetables too. Pumpkin is a great addition to your pet's diet, this is also a great aid for an upset stomach. We have personal experience with how this natural way of feeding helped our beloved pets, including helping to cure a long term skin irritation and pancreatitis.

We do not sell any brands that add any manufactured supplements to their recipes as all the vitamins and minerals that are needed to maintain a healthy life can be found in the raw ingredients. RAW FEEDING IS Raw feeding is about feeding your furry friend exactly what they were built to eat and digest. Before they were our beloved pets they were wild animals that survived by hunting, killing and eating their prey. Raw feeding is our way of mimicking as closely as possible this diet. Dogs and their wolf cousins have been eating raw food for over a million years and they thrive on it. The health benefits are massive and proven. If your dog has any health issues a raw food diet could make a huge difference. Raw feeding is growing in popularity; but a lot of people think that it gory, bloody and that they need training in how to butcher the meals properly. Here at Raw Galore we make this as simple and civilised as possible. We offer complimentary feed packs that need bones or organs added, complete meals that nothing needs adding and we also stock day old chicks and other small whole prey animals. We are also going to be stocking fresh bone broth that includes apple cider vinegar that really compliments a raw diet. WHY RAW? FOOD CALCULATOR
