I am starting to find that a raw natural diet is best for dogs and cats. The reason that I see is that is more closely matches the primal diet that they have eaten before they were domesticated.
Much of the dry, barely tasteful kibble that you feed your pets is highly processed and has fillers along with rancid oils for flavoring. I certainly don’t want to feed my pets that.
As a scientist, my hesitation is that dogs and cats have been bred on the commercial diets and are no longer fit to digest the raw natural meals as they ate before any longer.
On the other hand, they still are able to find and eat rodents and birds in the back yard with no adverse effects. In fact, many people claim that their pets are much healthier and happier on the raw natural diet. In that case, I am for the raw natural diets.
While I contemplate the benefits of a raw natural diet vs. cooked, I am feeding my pets a home cooked diet. Soon, I will be making that available to pet owners in my area.
In the meantime, tell me your thoughts on the raw natural diet.
Best to you and your pets.
