We all know that processed human food causes some health problems. Dog food can cause issues such as allergies, diabetes, and obesity in dogs. A raw diet is better and has more health benefits for our dogs. You can start feeding dog raw diet on a budget. Below are some of the benefits of raw food:
Better Dental Hygiene
Raw foods eliminate gum disease and bad breath in dogs. By feeding raw meat, dental activity is maximum and makes dogs have stronger and healthy teeth.
Raw meat offers your dog a form of exercise and massages the gums during the chewing process. Dogs have cleaner and whiter teeth when feeding raw fresh food. They acquire natural calcium directly into the teeth.
Boosts The Immune System
The raw diet contains nutrients and fatty acids that support the immune system. It also reduces inflammatory diseases of the central nervous system, such as rabies.
Raw foods keep away toxins that compromise the immune system leading to some skin conditions in dogs. They generally make dogs harder and builds stronger muscles. Proper feeding of a raw diet improves the immune system and prevents all types of diseases.
Better Skin and Coat
The dog’s skin will become soft and shiny because of the natural look. The quality of the coat will also improve a few weeks after feeding a raw diet. Therefore, extra supplements and oils are not needed. The hair follicles hold appropriately and reduce shedding.
A raw diet provides good nutrition and immune support that keeps bugs away. It also rebalances the hormones that keep the skin healthy. Itching and paw chewing in dogs become lesser because the skin will be free from bugs.
You will notice all digestive discomfort and gas are gone. Raw foods provide sufficient dietary nutrients that aid in digestion because they contain low carbs and sugars. Dogs can stay longer with less food and will spend less time digesting the food.
If the energy spent is digesting food is less, then there is more energy for the dogs to have fun. Raw foods are rich in enzymes; hence supplements are not needed. The risk of constipation and diarrhea is eliminated when dogs are fed a raw diet.
Producing Less Waste
Dogs absorb more ingredients from a raw diet, meaning less waste. The absorption of food is faster, and only little is expelled. The stool has no intense smell compared to a kibble diet.
The waste takes less effort to pass out and is firm; therefore, it becomes easy to clean. The trash may also appear paler as a result of the raw bone content.
