Raw Diet Options for Your Pets

Raw diet options for your pets

So, you've decided to feed your pet a raw diet. Deciding to feed your pet a raw diet might seem like a walk in the park compared to the next step: actually deciding what form of a raw diet you want to feed your pet. Don't worry, you can always feed a combination of options to ensure your dog or cat has a balanced diet that they enjoy eating!

A Fresh Raw Diet

The classic mainstay for feeding a raw diet to your pets is going for a fresh food option. You can purchase ingredients from the grocery store or a butcher. Many people even source components from hunters during hunting season.

When you feed a fresh raw diet, you are likely going to be limited by freezer space. Unless you have a large house with plenty of deep freezers, you aren't going to be able to buy weeks and weeks of food for your pet, particularly if you have a large dog (or several)! Instead, you'll usually need to make regular trips to get ingredients.

When feeding a fresh raw diet, you should consult a veterinarian to formulate the best diet for your pet to ensure that they are eating a nutritionally balanced meal. Feeding your pet this way is the best way to control exactly what your pet is eating and can be very beneficial if they have health conditions, such as food allergies or a sensitive stomach.
