Kimberly-Gauthier-top-benefits-of-rawBenefits of Raw Feeding

With the growing popularity of raw feeding, it’s easy to forget that the concept of raw feeding is new to many people. Raw feeding is an attempt by pet owners to feed their dogs and cats an ancestral diet that is natural and species-appropriate. Raw feeders believe that feeding commercial dry and canned pet food has lead to the growing number of pets diagnosed with allergies, diabetes, and cancer.

I transitioned our dogs from dry dog food to raw in April 2013 and immediately saw the benefits in my dogs. Now, more than two years later, I can provide a long list of benefits to our dog’s health thanks to a diet of raw dog food.

You Might be a Raw Feeder If…

When I first transitioned our dogs to raw feeding, I quickly became overwhelmed by the amount of information available and felt intimidated by the raw feeding groups. Today, I’m one of those crazy dog moms who quietly (not really) obsesses about her dogs’ diet.

Recently, I was thawing out 200 pounds of raw meat to make meals for four dogs and I started thinking about the life of a raw feeder and developed an infographic inspired by my experience and that of my raw feeding friends.

  • My dogs LOVE their new food!! I used to feed them dry kibble and they would leave their food in the bowls for 2 days before they would eat. Now they wake me up in the morning ready to eat. They also have so much more energy, they act like they are puppies again. The customer service is awesome! Too bad all companies don't have this kind of service. I will continue to buy Steve's Real Food for my dogs.

  • CONVENIENT, RELIABLE, DOGS LOVE THE FOOD I switched my dogs to a raw diet about 2 months ago. My older dog was panting a lot and he had a potato sized growth on his shoulder. The growth is now the size of an egg and his excessive panting has stopped. My younger dog was overweight despite the fact that she was very active and on a strict low calorie diet. She has slimmed down quite a bit.

  • We were skeptical of feeding raw. Finally we decided to take the plunge. The first surprise was, my dogs loved it. And the goat milk yogurt is a complete hit! They all love it. We had one small issue with the shipping and after one email everything was taken care of. But now that it's been several months we have noticed many other things. None of my dogs chew on their feet anymore. None of my dogs have itchy flaky skin anymore. And they are all pretty and shiny with tons of energy.

  • My dog was a picky eater and overweight. After 4 months of eating this raw diet he is almost at his recommended weight. I no longer have to coax him to eat by doctoring up his kibble. He eats the food as is and empties his bowl right away.

  • I wanted to give a shout out to Tara at the corporate office. She really went above and beyond! I had several questions about switching my dog over to raw food and the transition that's involved. She met with me in person and took the time to listen and gave me some great suggestions/feedback to my questions. She shared what her own dog went through and how raw dog food helped. Tara made me feel comfortable and was so kind and thoughtful to take the time out of her busy day to be so helpful. My dog is LOVING the food and has been transitioning very smoothly. Thanks so much for being so awesome, Tara. It meant a lot to me and because of the experience I had and the kindness you showed to me, I will continue to be a grateful customer and will recommend Steve's to all my fellow dog moms and dads.
