RAW diets use uncooked slightly cooked meat, bones, fruits, and vegetables to mimic the natural foods eaten by the domesticated dog’s wild ancestors. While opposition still exists, the benefits of a RAW diet are numerous.
Chewing raw, meaty bones results in clean, white teeth with virtually no “dog breath.” Many commercially-fed dogs experience painful periodontal diseases such as gingivitis and abscesses - even with regular brushing and flossing. Skin disorders heal, and dogs develop thick, healthy coats. Owners of RAW-fed dogs report improved temperments with an increased ability to focus on training.
