Information and Resources on the Biological Appropriate Raw Food

Providing Healthy, Convenient  as nature intented food

Deciding which food to feed your pet, can become a confusing and daunting task with so many different brands on offer. Ultimately our choice of nutrition is an integral segment of this process so that our companions can live a long and healthy life. Having a pet is not a privilege, instead it is a symbiotic relationship of companionship and trust that extends beyond all the boundaries of everyday life. Animals are part and parcel of our ecosystem and like no man is an island so too this world would not be in balance if we only existed without the animal kingdom.

By providing for them a biologically appropriate meal that allows their systems to work effectively and hopefully building their immune system through a diet that puts very little stress on the body and ultimately helps protect them from degenerative diseases and other health complications associated with poor nutrition.

“It is not the germ, it is all about the terrain.” Louis Pasteur.

Bones

The dog’s body is built to consume bones, it is necessary to include Bones in a raw diet. Bones are living tissue. Raw Bones contain a wide variety of nutrients, vitamins, minerals, proteins, natural antioxidants (enzymes and anti-aging factors), and fats (essential fatty acids). The bone marrow alone is a highly nutritious mix of blood forming elements, such as iron. Never give your dog cooked bones; it is not only unhealthy for a dog, but also dangerous.

Herbs, Vitamins and Minerals

Our nutritionist has prompted us to add important and natural ingredients to the diets. Although, these ingredients are included in small quantities we support the view that these ingredients are needed to form a more complete and nutritionally based product. Taking into account our environment has been robbed of its many natural minerals and the soil quality is not as it was years ago as well as with the constant damage being done through global warming and industrialisation. We feel that the addition of these ingredients have made our products even better.
