Why Raw & Results

Raw food is what nature intended for dogs, after all that is how they ate their food many many years ago until humans created the kibble.

The raw community and kibble feeders are divided and that is because we all love our pets and we all have very strong opinions but the truth is that dogs were once scavengers and they ate raw prey and plants. Even the wolf ate blueberries where food was scarce. So what have we learnt from this?

Quite simply cats and dogs really thrive on eating raw food. Some Veterinarians are making the connection between diet and health, and quite similar to doctors who  advise people that diet is important to keep their hearts healthy and overall well being in tip top shape. Dogs and cats should not be treated any different when it comes to having a balanced diet and a diet with diversity.  Your K9 friend does not need to have a present health condition to switch or transition slowly to raw.

 

Raw food is beneficial to any pets diet.

  • Cleaner teeth and fresh breath

  • Better weight control

  • Improved digestion

  • Shinier, healthier skin and coat

  • Reduction of allergy symptoms

  • Harder, smaller, less smelly stools

  • Increased mobility in older animals

  • More energy and stamina

  • Strengthened immune system

  • Improved liver, pancreatic and bowel health

  • Savings due to less trips to the vet

Here are a couple of Clinical Cases with 100% curing results following the recommendations of K9 Rawsome.

 

 

 

BEFORE                                        AFTER 3 weeks

This staffy suffered from a very painful skin allergy where veterinarian treatment was not successful. She was eating Science Diet Hills Kibble. Her pet owner from Melbourne, Vic contacted us and we revised the brief history and organised a meal plan. We received news that on day 5 day her pet owner had seen a difference and at 3 weeks she was completely cured by recommendation on eating a raw diet.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am always overwhelmed when I hear of our successful results. This Mini Bulldog named Maggie amazed us with the transition and escaping surgery that was intended to take place. Maggie's pet owner Robyn from Coffs Harbour contacted K9 Rawsome with a few concerns and one mostly important was that Maggie had breathing difficulties for 12 months. Maggie was seeking Veterinarian assistance during this time however nothing was conclusive as to the causes and a surgery date was booked in to ascertain what what causing the breathing issues.

 

With no medical rulings, Robyn turned to K9 Rawsome for help.

 

After asking Maggie's pet owner what she was feeding her over a period of time,  I simply asked her to remove a couple of the ingredients she was feeding Maggie and remarkably after 2 weeks we received NEWS that Robyn cancelled Maggies surgery as her symptoms disappeared.

Through my own research I have found that diversity of foods is the key to pet wellness,  a healthier pet.  Feeding raw food is becoming amazingly popular, and I must take note of many pets that are suffering from illnesses eating kibble food. It's a fact! The processing of kibble involves the rendering of food to approximately 270 degrees. At a crucial time of processing, minerals and vitamins are added. At this point the rendering begins again and ultimately many of those vitamins and minerals we look for on a packet have lost their full minimum essentials.  

There are even fad pet food companies cooking food for pets, a clever marketing portal in attracting pet owners however, once you cook food for pets, all those vital nutrients that are found in raw food are mostly lost once cooked, so really the benefit has been taken away. Admittingly there are some dogs that cannot eat raw and due to a very sensitive stomach these dogs may require to eat partially cooked foods.

 

Kibble is convenient to purchase and keep on hand when needed however when pet owners are buying the cheapest bag of kibble to save money, those nasty  ingredients should be read on the label.  There's alot of nasties in those bags and the first 5 ingredients actually make the kibble!  Kibble should start with protein such as :

 

Chicken or Lamb or Beef or Salmon etc.  Remember, the first five ingredients is what mostly makes kibble. 

 

If you are choosing kibble made in other countries other then Australia, most of those brands have been recalled over and over again. That is something to consider when choosing kibble.  

Did you know once you open a bag of kibble, if kibble is not consumed within 2 weeks, the kibble in the bag becomes rancid? Exposure to air and humidity can speed up the rate at which dog foods degrade. As fats and proteins break down in air/moisture, they become rancid, and are at risk for bacterial contamination. 

If you cannot transition to a 100% raw diet then please limit the use of kibble and think of kibble merely as fibre for your dog.

Please choose Australian Brands.

 

How can I possibly tell you kibble is nutritional when we have shared with you and shown you real life stories of sick dogs and how the transition of raw food cleared their health problems. Raw food may not cure every pet health problem but where there is a fulfilment of a better quality of well being then we must be more open to the diversity of foods available for our pets.

 

The Rendering Process is not what it seems to be.  If you have ever walked into a Pet grade meat manufacturing facility, the horrible smell is quite overwhelming.  K9 Rawsome meals are all hand crafted and using human grade ingredients. 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

BEFORE and AFTER

Bonnie was eating Royal Canin and Science Diet, another usual recommendation by a veterinarian. Bonnie was losing alot of weight and her owner had nothing but health problems from the very start of adopting her. Bonnie kept experiencing alot of diarrhoea and she was losing alot of weight. Her pet owner Kara was seeking veterinarian help and followed a meal plan from her vet which was not working and diarrhoea persisted.  I assessed the eating plan and it was all wrong!

 

Bonnie kept losing weight and we sympathised with this stressful but concerning problem. 

K9 Rawsome customised a meal plan and the recommendation of changing the kibble immediately. Kara followed our instructions and we were happy to see her progress as follows:
✔Bonnies diarrhea stopped after 5 days on our recommendation
✔White rice🚫
✔Raw foods introduced
✔Bonnie was 17 kilos on 5th Oct 2017 and on the 10th December 2017 she was 30 kilos.
That is an increase of weight and muscle by approximately 13 kilos in 9 weeks.
✔ Her coat is shiny and healthy now


 

When it comes to pet nutrition, It's not rocket science but there is certainly some great science behind, kibble, raw foods, methods and percentages. IE: specific levels of protein, fat, minerals, and vitamins, depending on the life stage of the dog and breed. To prove they are healthy, foods must either be made from a recipe that meets certain nutritional requirements, or they must be put through a special feeding trial etc. We trial all our products.

Our goal is to help as many pet owners especially where all else has failed or if you are wanting to transition slowly to BARF (Biologically Appropriate Raw Food), K9 Rawsome is trend setting the Australian Pet Food Industry . A good diet can contribute to a long and healthy life and even psychological well-being for our pets. 

There is a difference between THRIVING and SURVIVING.                          

 

A raw diet

is the best way to ensure your pet

 is getting nothing but the

freshest and most nutritious foods.

 

 

Whilst we are advocates of raw food, we understand that not all pet owners can transition to a completely raw diet for their pets. We will assist you with guidance  every step of the way., the benefits will truly be amazing.
