WHY RAW?

Dogs are carnivores, feeding a balanced raw diet emulates the food and nutrition that nature intended.
WHY RAW? - The Butcher's Dog

We want you to feed your dogs real food, made with real ingredients that you can see. Ingredients with names you can pronounce, full of fresh meat and seasonal vegetables and fruit, grown right here in Australia.

Key benefits of going RAW.

The benefits of raw are easy to see, inside and out. With changes like these you’ll have fewer trips to the vet saving you money.

Better Weight control

Cut the carbs and eat fresh food with plenty of quality protein and we can all lose weight and tone up.

Calmer

No starchy carbs and improved gut health equal a much calmer dog. The gut brain axis is real.

Improved Digestion

Processed food doesn’t contain living enzymes and is a lot more difficult to digest than fresh food.

Oral Health

Stinky breath comes from poor gut health and plaque build up on teeth. Feeding fresh food eliminates these problems.

Shinier

When they’re healthy on the inside they’re shining on the outside.

Smaller wee and poo

Your dog will naturally be hydrated so will need to drink less. Without all the undigestable ingredients there is a lot less waste matter.

Strengthened Immune

Over 80% of the immune system resides in the gut - so a healthy gut results in a healthier dog.

Key Benefits of Going Raw

What you may not know about Kibble

1

A highly-processed diet is not good for you and equally as bad for your dog.

2

Dog kibble often has very low quality meat proteins and is packed full of a lot of highly-processed starches and carbohydrates as fillers.

3

Most kibbles – grain free or not – are often 50% carbohydrates which convert to sugar. Sugar is linked to itching, skin irritations, diabetes, yeast infections, ear infections, obesity and cancer.

4

When kibble manufacturers removed the grains to produce a ‘healthier’ grain free product, they replaced them with other starches like potato, tapioca, peas, and tomato pomace.

5

Dogs only have a biological need for 5-7% carbohydrates so when you feed your dog a natural diet high in animal protein you’re feeding them what they were born to eat.
