Feeding your pet a balanced raw diet
For busy people who want no fuss but the very, very best for their pets.
What is the prey model diet?
When the cat or dog catches and consumes its own prey, the ratio of prey eaten works out at approximately 80% of muscle meat, 10% of the bone & 10% of the organs (5% being secreting organs). If the prey is a ruminant animal such as goat, deer, lamb or cow, (four chambered stomach) then if they eat the stomach (tripe) the ratio eaten changes to 55% of muscle meat, 25% tripe (stomach), 10% of bone and 10% of organs (5% being secreting organs).
Some of our meat blends are based on these percentages 80% muscle meat | 10% bone | 10% organ (and other secreting organs)
We only have two blends that have tripe included and the percentages of these blends are 55% muscle meat | 25% tripe (stomach) | 10% bone | 10% organ (and other secreting organs)
The Many Health Benefits of Changing to a Prey Model Diet
There are numerous arguments over the health effects of feeding commercial pet foods. An increasing number of pet owners claim to have noticed a significant increase in overall health after switching to a prey model diet.
No more allergies (allergies are often caused by the cereals and preservatives contained within kibble).
Increased mental stimulation, not least because the pet is required to figure out how to attack and consume their new foods.
Smaller and less smelly poops. Meat and bone are broken down in the acidic stomach of cats and dogs more easily than kibble (which requires a more alkaline stomach).
More excitement at mealtimes (we all look forward to dinner time when there’s something special to eat!)
Stronger immune systems that are more resistant to disease and ill health.
Shiny, healthier coats.
Pearly white teeth, healthy gums and sweet breath (no tooth decay, or periodontal disease, therefore no infection on the gums and no bacteria swallowed with every gulp of saliva).
The increase in oral hygiene also leads to reduced chances of heart, kidney and liver disease.
Better concentration with commands (dogs – cats will still do what they please!) due to being less hyperactive.
Better muscle tone and body fat balance.
Less visits to the vet.
