The type of food fed to a dog has a significant association with obesity and excess body weight. “Dogs that were never fed a commercial dog food [ie., kibble] were less likely to be overweight than dogs fed commercial dog food”. (2020, Torda) To help combat obesity, ensuring regular exercise and feeding real food that is more nutrient dense and has a higher bioavailability than dry, extruded, processed food, is the solution.
Cats are obligate carnivores and are adapted to receive the majority of their water requirement from their diet, not from drinking water. The extrusion process for feline kibble diets impacts the moisture content of the final product. As a result, by feeding kibble, there are demonstrated effects on cat’s urinary tract health. From a nutritional perspective, foods with a moisture content similar to animal prey [raw] would better align with a natural pet nutrition compared to dry foods. (2014, Buff)
For dogs, each dinner is a single-source protein blend of lean muscle meat, finely ground bone and organ meats. For cats, each dinner is naturally taurine rich with added trout for palatability. With popular protein and novel protein selections, switching your pet to something they’ll love just got easier.
