Why Feed Raw?

At Green Pawz Pet Supply we believe that a raw diet is one of the best and biologically appropriate feeding options available.  A raw food formula provides your dog or cat with a diet that closely mimics their natural eating habits as they were in the wild. Although most of our pets may have evolved to look different on the outside, internally our pets' digestive systems have not evolved and are the same as their wild ancestors. The high quality meat proteins provide essential amino acids and enzymes necessary to support your pets health. Along with the high moisture content of these raw foods, the combination of high meat proteins and high moisture, make for an ideal diet for your cat or dog.

We all know the benefits to ourselves of eating raw fruits and vegetables for their live enzymes, vitamins, minerals and nutritive value, and the same applies for our dogs and cats. A raw prey model diet is about matching as closely as possible to what a dog or cat would eat in the wild, i.e. whole small animals such as birds, rabbits, rodents etc, together with some larger prey such as deer and other medium sized herbivores as well as some opportunistic prey, perhaps the uneaten remains from another larger carnivore, or other natural carrion.

Here's something to think about...

If you compare the physical body to that of a car engine, in order for it to perform properly, it must be supplied with the correct fuel and lubricants. Cheaper or incorrect fuels, often lead to accelerated wear and tear and eventually break down. Our dogs and cats bodies work on the same principles, and a species appropriate raw diet is the only diet that will maximize health and longevity.

Benefits of Raw:

  • Ability to custom tailor your pets’ diets for their activity level, age, health problems and specific nutritional requirements
  • Promotes overall health
