If you're new to raw you're probably wondering "why is raw better".
Raw isn't better because of what's in it... it's healthier because of what's not.
Modern diets are straying further and further away from out ancestral needs causing an array of health issues such as allergies, obesity, type 2 diabetes, auto-immune disease, and more.
Kibble diets are infested with filer such as wheat, corn, and soy. These grains harm the gut biome which directly impacts the immune system.
These grains also harvest man's #1 carcinogen: mycotoxins, which is a by-product of toxic mold.
Grains are food to these toxins. So when you go to feed Fido his "balanced" and "hearty" "food", you'll really be feeding him carcinogens and mold.
Quality is a factor that is overlooked in the kibble industry. Did you know when you see "poultry meal" on a pet food label that it is made up of ground-up male chickens from the egg industry, beaks, feathers, and scrapplings?!
AND to make matters worse, "meat meal" can contain road kill, euthanized animals, and even zoo animals...
Certain studies that have tested the meat content of dry foods have also found dog and cat meat to be added... EW!
Above all, kibble isn't "balanced" and "nutritious". It actually is quite opposite. Since dry foods are cooked at such high temperatures to rid of any pathogenic bacteria and prolong the shelf life, the fragile amino acids and vitamins/minerals are killed. This leads to companies adding dangerous synthetic vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants to attempt to add some nutritional value back into the dead food.
The problem with this is, man-made synthetics do not equate to mother nature's work. These synthetics are dangerous and cause millions of pet deaths annually. But yet, they're added to almost all dog foods... dry and raw.
This is only a small glimpse into the horrendous reasons why kibble is awful. Your job now is to dig deeper and research, research, and research. Research to become the best possible health advocate for your dog!
