Frequently Asked Questions
This is something we would advise against. Whilst, you can cook the meals which do not contain bone by doing so you actually make the meal less beneficial to your pet nutritionally.
YES. GIVEN THAT IT’S PERFECTLY SAFE TO FEED RAW MEAT AT ALL, WE KNOW OUR PETS DO NOT HAVE THE SAME SENSITIVE STOMACHS AS US HUMANS! IT’S SAFE (AND VERY CONVENIENT) TO REFREEZE FOOD ONCE DEFROSTED.
NO! NO! NO! COOKED BONES ARE BRITTLE AND SPLINTER WHICH CAN BE DANGEROUS. RAW BONES ARE COMPARATIVELY SOFT AND FLEXIBLE.
YES. WE DO THIS A LOT IN SUMMER MONTHS, A LOVELY MEAT LOLLIPOP IS VERY COOLING! FEEDING FROZEN CAN BE USEFUL IN SLOWING DOWN THOSE WHO DON’T CHEW FOOD PROPERLY AND GULP FOOD. BUT YOU MUST MONITOR YOU PETS WHEN FEEDING FROZEN JUST INCASE.
IT IS NOT ADVISED, AND KIND OF DEFEATS THE POINT OF SWITCHING TO THE MOST NATURAL DIET IF FED ALONGSIDE A HIGHLY PROCESSED DRY FOOD. RAW BONE REQUIRES A MORE ACIDIC STOMACH THAN KIBBLE. IF KIBBLE IS FED ALONGSIDE RAW THEN THE ACID MAY BE WEAKER AND CAUSE TUMMY UPSETS FROM UNDIGESTED BONE. FURTHERMORE, ONE OF THE REASONS WHY IT IS SAFE TO FEED RAW MEAT TO OUR PETS IS BECAUSE RAW MOVES THROUGH THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM QUICKER THAN KIBBLE, IF DRY FOOD IS FED ALSO, THE DIGESTION OVERALL IS SLOWED WHICH MAY GIVE BACTERIA A CHANCE TO AFFECT YOUR PET.
NO! WE WOULDN’T ADVISE AS GRAINS (WHEAT, RICE ETC) THEY PROVIDE LITTLE OR NO NUTRITIONAL VALUE APART FROM CALORIES AND ARE DIFFICULT FOR CARNIVORES TO DIGEST, AND CERTAINLY NOT SPECIES APPROPRIATE. MOST HIGH END DRY FOODS EXCLUDE GRAINS, SO IT’S WIDELY ACCEPTED THAT THIS IS NOT NEEDED.
We would advise against mixing two different meal types together. Raw food and Dry food digest at different rates and as a result feeding the two together may give your dog stomach upset and/or digestive issues over time.
