Why Are Raw Dog Food Diets a Good Choice?

At Huntaway, we have been selling raw food for dogs for some time. Feeding raw offers a number of health advantages and is a more natural way for dogs to eat. Raw food diets for pets are growing more and more popular, and we find that many dog owners opt to offer raw food to their canine pals. Raw food is less processed than the majority of currently available commercial dog food.

It makes sense to feed your dog with the same attention you would give to feeding your family, and ensuring they are eating a healthy, balanced diet, and feeding raw can be an excellent way to ensure this is what they're getting. And, of course, so many dogs simply enjoy Huntaway raw food a lot more — and that in itself would be worth it!

Better Bone and Joint Health

The best method to support bones is with other bones! Genuine bone is a natural source of calcium, phosphorus, glucosamine, chondroitin, collagen, and marrow. All of these elements contribute to the proper development of pups and the long-term joint and bone health of your dog. Huntaway raw dog food includes bone that has been crushed so it can be safely fed to your dog as part of their Huntaway raw venison dog food meals.

Improved Immune Response

Because the immune system serves as the body's first line of defense against infection, maintaining it is vital. Giving your dogs a comprehensive and balanced diet is crucial for supporting their immune systems. Huntaway raw dog food provides nutrients via natural components, which are highly digestible for your dog to help improve the absorption of these important ingredients.

Meat, fruit, and vegetables, as included in Huntaway's raw dog food, are natural immune-stimulating ingredients. Meat provides high-quality, easily digestible protein, which is essential for immunity and overall health, and feeding your dog a variety of fruits and vegetables gives them a naturally complete and balanced package of vitamins and minerals.

Improved Dental Health

Raw dog food diets are helpful for dental hygiene and promoting clean teeth due to their moisture content. Dry dog foods can build up on the gum line which promote plaque and tartar, while raw dog food slides off the teeth. Regardless of what you feed your pup, regular teeth brushing should always be practiced as well.

Improved Skin and Coat

One of the most well-known and well-studied nutrients in raw diets that support the health of the skin and coat is omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids are excellent for dogs with allergies or inflammatory skin conditions because they maintain healthy skin, a soft coat, and have anti-inflammatory properties.

Reduced Stool Volume and Odor

A benefit of feeding your pet a diet composed of components that are highly digestible is that more of what they consume is absorbed and used, resulting in less waste. Your dogs' digestive systems are built to absorb as many beneficial nutrients from their food as they can.

Soy, potato, maize, and rice are examples of filler ingredients and carbohydrates that take longer to digest and are not completely absorbed by your dog. These serve as bulk, resulting in a higher volume of feces with potentially a strong odor. Since our Huntaway raw dog food options don't contain any fillers and are low in carbohydrates, this frequently leads to smaller stools.
