Raw Food for Dogs or Raw Dog Food in Boca Raton, Coral Springs, Fort Lauderdale, Pompano Beach, and West Palm Beach: Which is Best?

It has probably come up in conversations that you've had with your dog-owning friends, or you might have overhead part of a conversation at your veterinarian's office. The subject of a raw dog food diet is something that has become more and more common, if only because dog owners and others have wanted to learn more about it. Dog owners from Boca Raton, Coral Springs, Fort Lauderdale, Pompano Beach, West Palm Beach, and the surrounding areas are deciding to try a raw dog food diet for their pet. My Paleo Pet has been working with raw and fresh food blends and meal combinations for dogs and cats for nearly 15 years.

What Is Raw Dog Food?

Essentially, raw dog food is food that has not been cooked and has been minimally processed to be in smaller pieces for easy eating for your pet. There is a variety of different meats, poultry and fish that are used in raw dog food, including chicken, beef, lamb, duck, turkey, pork, Salmon and others. Raw dog food is available in both a fresh and frozen state, with the frozen version being great for longer-term storage so that you can have healthy meals for weeks for your pet.

The fresh versions, as well as thawed versions, can be provided to your pet as is. That means that you do not have to do any further alterations to the food, including heating, though you can lightly heat the food if desired. If you decide to cook the food to "well-done", you are eliminating many of the helpful benefits of the raw food, so lightly heating the food is all that is recommended. There are a variety of different raw dog food meals, and it is recommended that you rotate through all varieties for a well-balanced diet for your pet over time.

What is Raw Food for Dogs?

The difference is simple: the raw diets at My Paleo Pet meet the standards of human-grade food. Raw dog food from the pet store does not necessarily meet this standard. Raw food for dogs is real food that you could purchase for your own consumption, but can feed to your dog, cat, or other carnivore. This ensures that your dog is receiving the same quality of food you trust for your own consumption.

Aren't Raw Diets for Dogs Dangerous?

While raw dog foods might be controversial, they have been used for many, many years by lots of different dog owners. Sled dogs, for example, are often fed a raw diet, as are racing greyhounds and other dogs. And this doesn't just mean meat either. You will see organ meats included, vegetables, fruit, and even eggs mixed with muscle meat in raw dog foods. These are the same foods that humans eat, so why wouldn't they also be good for dogs? It is just as important to provide a well-balanced diet for your pets. And My Paleo Pet has the balanced meals that you are looking for in Boca Raton, Coral Springs, Fort Lauderdale, Pompano Beach, West Palm Beach, and the surrounding areas.
