From Kibble to Carnivore: Exploring the Woof-tastic World of Raw Feeding in the UK

As a dog owner, you want the best for your furry friend. And when it comes to their diet, it’s no different. In recent years, raw feeding has become a popular trend among UK pet parents. Raw feeding involves feeding dogs raw, unprocessed meat, bones, and organs, mimicking their ancestral diet. In this article, we’ll explore the woof-tastic world of raw feeding in the UK.

Unleashing Your Dog’s Inner Wolf: The Benefits of Raw Feeding

Raw feeding has several benefits that can improve your dog’s overall health and well-being. Firstly, it can improve their coat and skin, making it shinier and softer. Raw feeding can also help with digestion, reducing the risk of bloating, constipation, and diarrhea. Additionally, it can boost their immune system, reducing the risk of diseases and infections.

Raw feeding also encourages dogs to chew, promoting dental hygiene and preventing tartar buildup. And for dogs with allergies or sensitive stomachs, raw feeding can be a game-changer. By eliminating processed ingredients and preservatives, raw feeding can alleviate some of the symptoms associated with allergies and intolerance’s.

Pawsitively Purrfect: A Guide to Raw Feeding for UK Pet Parents

If you’re considering raw feeding for your furry friend, there are a few things you should keep in mind. Firstly, it’s important to choose high-quality meats that are free from antibiotics and hormones. You’ll also need to ensure that your dog is getting a balanced diet that includes all the necessary nutrients, such as protein, fats, and some carbohydrates.

It’s also essential to handle raw meat carefully to avoid the risk of contamination. This means washing your hands, utensils, and surfaces after handling raw meat and storing it properly, just as you would for your own raw meat at home. You may also want to gradually introduce raw feeding into your dog’s diet to avoid any digestive issues.

Raw feeding is a woof-tastic way to provide your dog with a healthy and natural diet. Not only does it have several health benefits, but it can also be a fun and rewarding experience for both you and your furry friend. By following these guidelines, you can ensure a smooth transition to raw feeding and unleash your dog’s inner wolf.

Delivery charges

Delivery Charge

It is sadly unavoidable with the rising cost of fuel that we have to increase our delivery charge to £2.50. We really hoped to avoid this but we promise to keep an eye on things and when things improve (hopefully soon) and fuel comes down somewhat, we will adjust our costs accordingly.

Thank you all for your continued support, it means a great deal to us (and all small businesses) we really appreciate it.
