Why I Feed My Dog a Raw Diet

The experts will tell you raw food is dangerous. You’ve got to beware of worms, choking on bones, salmonella, the horrific list goes on. Why then do holistic veterinarians and millions of people (including me) feed their dogs and cats a raw food diet? Because the proof is in the pudding. The diet is species appropriate and our animals are just healthier. And some folks claim their animals are living much longer than their commercial food counterparts. Considering the dangers of commercial pet food  and all the deaths and recalls, seems raw food is a lot safer too.

The similarities between human processed food and animal processed food appear more than conspiratorial

(pesticides, GMO’s artificial additives, synthetic vitamins, etc.).

I’m shocked and concerned that animal doctors are prescribing drugs for “dis-eases,” without addressing nutrition and lifestyle. Animals are being diagnosed and treated for many of the same illnesses affecting people: Diabetes, anxiety, allergies, obesity, arthritis, kidney disease, auto immune disease and more.


I know what you’re thinking. The idea of raw food makes you a bit squeamish, ESPECIALLY if you’re a vegetarian. I don’t like messing with meat and don’t hardly eat the stuff, but hey, I want my little Scampy boy to be healthy. Fortunately, there are options. You can make your own, buy it freeze-dried, or do a little of both.

Scampy Treats with little scampy running across the page.

Our little guy gets jerky treats I make especially for him. The recipe uses organic pasture raised lamb or ground beef, organic carrot and organic sweet potato. You can make it by grating and finely chopping ½ c. or more of carrot and ½ c. sweet potato or yam into a medium bowl and mixing well with ½ lb. or more ground organic meat. Fill jerky sausage maker and dehydrate on high (160-170) for 1-1 ½ hrs. Treat sparingly. Little dogs like to fill up on treats!
