More and more evidence supports feeding pets a raw diet. Here we examine many of the arguments in favor of and against the new trend. Some of the points are inspired by Kellys Kennels – UK’s kennel with over 11K likes in Facebook.
Evidence of benefits of a raw diet for humans has been solidly established. Similar evidence for our pets is also starting to pile up. When given careful consideration, the idea is really not one that is totally foreign. Cats and dogs primarily rely on proteins they would receive from raw food if living in the wild. Cats and dogs consume a huge amount of meat and few grains when nature is left to take its course. It would make sense that a similar raw diet that would allow for the longest and most healthy lifespan in captivity, as well. Although modern pet foods are chemically balanced to accommodate these needs, the end result is just not the same.
