Why Raw Dog Food? | Why did I start Raw Made Simple?

My personal story of why raw dog food works for dogs and how we came to found Raw Made Simple.

Because I am passionate about feeding my dogs food that I can recognise and I know what is good for them, something that is purely natural and most importantly they are going to enjoy eating.

The background

For many years I fed a ‘high end’ kibble and each day I placed a scoop into a bowl on the floor and watched my dog stroll over and ‘peck’ at it. I thought this was how it was meant to be, and it was ‘good’ for her as it was a ‘complete’ meal that gave her everything she needed, the same food day in day out! For months I never questioned it, I would go along to the pet shop and buy exactly the same brand and take it home.

Like most dog owners, I didn’t think I knew more than the large corporations that spent so much money on research and development.  Surely my dog might suffer or become ill if I tried to change anything.  My bitch kept getting bouts of diarrhoea, I struggled on for about a year with different brands, but nothing seemed to work.

Why Raw Dog Food?

Then a friend of mine suggested ‘Raw’ I was horrified!! Raw chicken when she had diarrhoea – whatever next? Surely that would only make it worse – wouldn’t it?  Doing my own research and getting some great advice from the raw feeding community, I became confident enough to “make the switch”.  The results were immediate, no more upset stomachs and a new vigorous appetite for the food on offer, begging for it each evening!

For me, the results spoke for themselves!

I really enjoyed buying and introducing her to different meals and just watching her eat. Each day was a different meal, nothing was the same from one day to the next. One thing I can say is that your dog will love you for changing, on that I am sure! The raw feeding community were so helpful for me on my journey, many owners had reported that feeding a balanced raw diet helped with:

  • Smaller pellet like stools which are easy to pick up.
  • Reduced smelling or odourless stools with less wind.
  • Fresh breath
  • Better tar free teeth
  • Glossy odour free coats
  • An improved and strong immune system.
  • Reduced itching and licking caused by allergies.
  • Healthier joints and reduced inflammation.
  • Better internal organ function.
  • Reduced anal gland issues.
  • Pancreatitis is often easier to manage on a raw diet.
  • Other conditions often improve and require less medication.

That was the start of my raw feeding journey 6 years ago, and I now look back and see how far I have come!  As a seasoned home user, making my own meals it became apparent from my friends that everyone wants what’s best for their four-legged family member.  Raw feeding works, but not every owner feels confident in handling raw meat, weighing and mixing different minces and chunks to create healthy appetising meals.
