Because dogs are carnivores. This is done under our supervision.
This is a natural teeth cleaning exercise- and yes it does wear them out. Yes they get bone in meat meals also but this is extracurricular for them. We can’t seem to get whole prey still, so we improvise as best we can.
Ezra our Carolina Dog puppy, 6 months old at the time of this photo (6 months ago).
King our American Bully, 8 years old at the time of this photo (6 months ago).
Ezra was weaned to raw from raw fed parents. He’s never had to be subjected to kibble.
King was switched to raw at 6 months of age. We’ve had him since he was 13 months old.
Both are easy feeders since they have no finicky-ness whatsoever lol.
I took these pics six months ago…and these still hold true. This is what our canine carnivore companions were designed to eat. Anything in a bag or can is simply processed junk food. No matter the label on it.
Want to DIG in and really learn how to be proactive in the care of your dog? Then I invite you to consider a consultation to learn all the things that contribute to ill health in our dogs. Better yet, learn all the things that contribute to GOOD health in our dogs!!
The best thing is, you’ll be empowered to make your own informed decisions for your dogs.
Until next time…
Have a PAWSitively, tail waggin’, NATUROPATHICALLY healthy day!
