"The Thinking Person's Pet Food"™ – Since 1979
I have been looking into raw diets for my 2 dogs (rat terrier & beagle) and I am trying to get a better handle on the benefits. I have seen a lot of websites stating why raw diets are better but many of them are lacking scientific proof. I am looking for some solid information that shows what is destroyed in a dog food by traditional processing, I am especially interested in enzymes. Does the book you sell through your site "The truth about pet foods" contain any type of studies? I would like to know more about the book and would like to know if you have any information about raw diets vs traditional diets for dogs.
Thank you for your recent e-mail. Yes, the Truth About Pet Foods book does contain information about raw diets/feeding. You might also go on-line and obtain a copy of Pottenger's Cats which contains raw diet studies.
Further, concerning feeding raw diets, when following the natural model, there really isn't anything to test or research. Animals in the wild have survived (and thrived) for eons eating raw, whole prey. Cooking food is the novelty that needs proof. Also, the numerous health problems plaguing pets today were not prevalent until pet owners started feeding processed foods to their pets exclusively (the last 50 years or so).
