Have you ever considered feeding your pet raw dog food? No, me neither but recently it has cropped up several times from friends and family with two of them converting and reporting back very positive results. The guide they are using… You guessed it! It’s the Going Rawr eBook guide and it is very impressive. It is packed with raw dog food diet recipes that are brilliantly put together by Maggie Rhines, the creator.
The problem with commercial dog food
Maggie states that commercial dog foods have the following problems:
- are almost always fortified with vitamins and minerals
- causes dogs to be prone to ticks and dull coat
- causes dogs to have bad-smelling doggie breath
- makes use of grains as one of the ingredients, even if grains are not safe for dog consumption
- are full of artificial flavorings and colorings to make the food more attractive to dogs, but are not that good for their health
- makes use of meat by-products or meats that have failed to meet the standards for human consumption (i.e. lower quality meats
I was shocked to read as i said in my recent review of the Royal Canin Cocker Spaniel dog food my dog did use to suffer with some of these side effects of a poor dog food so i can fully believe that this is true. I have always known that they use meat that is not for human consumption in dog food and it is accepted but why? If we eat that meat then we would become ill and i know dogs have stronger stomachs but feeding them degraded meat day in day out surely can’t be good for them.
Also in regards to the grains found in commercial dog foods being bad is a real worry and something i had not thought about for my dog even though i don’t eat grains. I cut out grains a long time ago as part of my healthy diet after watching a documentary which showed you how rice shouldn’t be consumed at all by humans and can be very harmful. Then after reading further into it you will also find out how grains from bread and pasta are not naturally digested either. So why do we accept feeding our dogs these, potentially harmful, ingredients?
Going Rawr will provide you with a long list of recipes that you can make for your dog that are all made up of raw ingredients. At first this may seem like a massive hassle that you do not want to take on but Maggie really knows what she is talking about and doesn’t provide you with a massive list of expensive ingredients that take 2 hours to prepare and cannot be stored. She is a sensible person that understands everyone’s struggles of life and how busy we all are. She provides sensible and reasonably priced (we are still talking meat) recipes for you that you can prepare and store to feed your dog efficiently even when you need to rush out. The recipes will often involve grabbing the ingredients, throwing them into a bowl, mixing them up and feeding to your dog. The main piece of equipment you need is some quick measures which can be bought for a few pounds here…
From there you will be shown step by step the best ways to then store the food, as you can make it in bulk, rather than just preparing it from scratch each day. The processes Maggie will show you to store the food will also reduce the chance of contamination which again is a big issue when looking at commercial dog food especially wet food.
How feeding your dog raw food could save you money
I know, if your someone like me, that the main sticking point on putting your dog on a raw food diet is the price. Although my dogs are a major part of my life i know how much shopping costs these days and to then have to add 1 more mouth to the shopping list could be a deal breaker but Maggie has the answer.
The portion sizes you are going to be feeding your dog are only small therefore the actual extra cost is kept to a minimum. This is massively down to the fact that the food you will be feeding your dog is packed with good nutrients and naturally filling for your dog. Unlike commercial food which is artificially pumped full of artificial nutrients and grains to make your dog feel full. So the result is your dog won’t actual need to eat as much food thus meaning your costs will be kept low.
Secondly you need to think of the potential vet bills you could be saving by feeding your dog such a healthy diet. There are so many dogs that are obese, just like us humans, and the problem is constantly getting worse. Being on top of your dogs diet and feeding them only what is necessary means they will keep at a good weight. This then reduces all the problems associated with being overweight and eating a bad diet such as heart disease, diabetes, skin problems, difficulty breathing and the list goes on.
I’m Going RAWR are you?
After reading into the raw dog food diet i cannot keep feeding my dog commercial food without at least trying this out and seeing what effects they have on my dog. For the sake of $27 i will be weaning my dog onto raw food for at least a month to see what the results are for my dog and also how difficult the system is to implement. Everything about the diet fits with my principles around eating fresh healthy food so why should my dog not also have the same benefits.
Maggie claims that this diet could add 5+ years to your dogs life. Is that something that you really want to pass up with your furry friend? So give Maggie a chance to change your dogs life, as i have, and get your dog on a Rawr diet today!
