Fresh vegetables, fruits, poultry and other lean meats are only some things that you will find in a raw dog food diet. This is what you will find owners feeding their pets this type of diet use when they prepare the meals for their dogs. Each meal consisting of raw dog food is filled with the natural vitamins and minerals that your dog needs which is why many pet owners prefer to use this type of diet.

Under the Raw food diet, meats like beef, chicken, lamb, venison, rabbit and organic chicken are fed to dogs. All of these are mixed with a good amount of ground bone or whole bone, liver, heart, kidney and different kinds of vegetables. Other types of organ meats may be used as well depending on what is available. The wide variety of choices that you have for feeding your pet makes sure that you take the whole concept of holistic pet care to a different level. A ratio of 60-40 is normally used for raw feeding, 60 being meat and 40 being vegetables, fruits, dairy and others.

In some cases a 75-25 ratio is also used. This will really depend on what your dog needs. Making it a point to use all organic fruits and vegetables as well as meat that does not contain any hormones or chemicals can help ensure optimum health for your dog.

Many pet owners turn to raw dog food because of several reasons. The top reason being that many dog owners want to give their dog's the best. Commercial dog foods contain many additives and chemicals which can make dogs sick. Secondly, making use of raw dog food can be very convenient. There is no need for you to clean up after so much dog waste and your dog starts to smell cleaner and look cleaner as well; this takes a lot of time out from having to bathe your dog and clean up after it. You can also prepare it anywhere without cooking, so even if you go on a trip your dog can get a healthy meal. Of course, these can also be pre-prepared and frozen for use anytime that you need it. With a raw food meal there is neither sacrificing the quality of the food that you give to your dog nor jeopardizing its health. This is certainly a better option than other dog diets.
