Did you know that despite thousands of years of domestication, dogs today have only a 1% DNA difference than their wild counterparts? This means that even though our favorite companions have evolved to be the loyal, playful, amazing pets we love, inside they are still the same as the wild packs that survived while roaming the land. Our cats are known for their independent yet affectionate nature, but at heart are still the true carnivores that can see well in darkness to capture small prey. What does all this mean for our pets? Today’s commercially produced dry food may be all wrong for developing strong, healthy dogs and cats!
Raw Advantage is a pet food company with a mission: to keep pet companions happy, healthy and disease-free for as many years as possible with a natural raw food diet. The company’s variety of raw pet food products have been specially formulated to meet the unique nutritional needs of your cats and dogs. Since dogs first warmed the feet of cave-dwelling people, and cats first became objects of reverence in ancient Egypt, they have been at their best when they could hunt, capture, and eat raw prey. Consuming the skin, bones, meat and even undigested stomach contents fueled our animal companions for thousands of years. Only recently did they begin eating a diet of dry kibble, and it may be no coincidence that suddenly we’re seeing a prevalence of disease, allergies, inflammation, and other health conditions.
Raw Advantage products are hand processed in the company’s brand new Kettle Falls, WA facility, using ingredients that are Certified Organic and human grade. None of the ingredients are rendered, or otherwise unfit for a person to eat, unlike many of the processed ingredients in commercial pet foods. Instead, Raw Advantage uses real beef, turkey, chicken, duck, lamb, and vegetables. Products are available as Dinners, which are complete meals; Recipes, which can supplement dinners a few times a week; Formulas for special needs; and fun Treats and Snacks. The Raw Advantage products come in “chubs” and “chunks.” Chunks are small pieces suitable for smaller dogs and cats, and allow owners to feed without having to thaw out large portions of food. The Chubs are packaged like a sausage roll.
For people who are interested in helping their pets live a longer, healthier life, Raw Advantage offers plenty of information on why feeding raw is to your pet’s best advantage. Raw food is better for a dog’s or cat’s digestive system and results in visible health benefits. These benefits include fresher breath, healthier teeth, healthier skin and coat, a boosted immune system, and less incidence of degenerative diseases and conditions. Not only can a raw diet help cats and dogs be at their optimal health, it can also help your pets heal from infections, repel parasites on the skin, and reduce the effects of aging in pets, all without the use of drug therapies and other common medications.
Giving your pet a “Raw Advantage” may be one of the best decisions you’ll make regarding the health and well-being of your furry family members. Just as humans aren’t designed to eat processed, preserved, or chemical-laden foods, pets aren’t designed to eat what passes for food in many of today’s commercial bags of pet food. It’s been shown by many owners and veterinarians that the diseases and conditions we are seeing in pets can be traced back to nutrition, so it only makes sense to give your dog or cat the best weapon available: a proper, nutritionally balanced, beneficial diet. When you see your pet eager to eat his dinner and treats, you’ll know you made the right decision to give your pets a Raw Advantage!
