Raw Food Diet
« on: October 18, 2015, 03:23:10 pm »
I have a a dog and a cat
Both have been eating dry food for the past 10 years plus....

Last year I realised there is growing awareness of "raw food diet"
and after many research and readings on foreign forums and overseas articles, began to switch both the dog and cat to raw food diets...

Its not easy since preparing the food takes up time and a bit more money than the usual dry food diet.
But you can see the change in health and their excitement towards their food.
Hope there are fellow raw-food-diets pet owners here!
Will share more later!

Imagine you have to eat khong guan biscuits for the rest of your life.  :-X
Loving life here!

A diet of raw food is the recent trend lately, and fuelled by much consumer sentiment about the "blandness" of kibble and comparing it to the way humans eat. Admittedly, there are better health benefits of taking raw food, but what type of raw meats to get and the quality of the raw meat speaks volumes about a pet's nutrition as well.

I did a blog article about this a month ago about the good and bads of commercial diets, kibble and home cooked food. It can be found here http://www.pawrus.com.sg/blogs/news/51044613-a-comparison-commercial-kibble-vs-home-cook-food-vs-raw-diets.

i prepare fresh carrots, peas, vegetables etc on weekend, pack them into locklock boxes and feed my lovely birds.
healthy for our furkids to eat fresh food rather than dry processed food :)

You'll be surprise that raw food is the least stinky for my cat. She has poop that doesn't smell when she was on raw and when she was on cooked or commercial feeds, the poop really really stinks! Raw also give her better health, no more dirt around the tear duct and because raw also include feeding raw bones, her teeth do not get tar tar built up and therefore does not have bad breath compared to some animals who are on kibbles long term.

For cats, a good brand that is not too high in salt is Natural Balance. I find this brand rather reliable and no complains from my customers so far. However, that depends on your cats! Do they have any UTI (Urinary Tract Issues) or Skin problems?

I might be able to recommend a specific food if you let me know their condition!

Hello
According to me raw food is good for humans only because it helps you remain fit and healthy but for dogs, I will never prefer. Yes, it is difficult to make special food for them but still they are also part of our family. And, yes are so many packets available in the market for dogs which are quite healthy for them. So, yo can get those packets for your dogs and also they will enjoy that food. Also, you can look for these references, they can help you in more appropriate way.
