I am slowly transitioning Bentley and Pierre to a raw pet food diet. I truly feel that it is better for their overall health. I am still having a hard time putting raw store-bought meat into their bowls. I know that it is perfectly fine for our pets, but after a lifetime of being told not to eat raw meat it still makes me uneasy.
Thankfully, there is Stella & Chewy’s® Meal Mixers. It is a freeze-dried raw meat packed with 95% nutrient-rich meat, organs, and bones. I like being able to feed raw without it looking raw. The boys love the taste. As a matter of fact, a recent university study showed that 9 out of 10 dogs preferred their kibble with Stella & Chewy’s Meal Mixers. The tenth dog probably liked it better too, but there is always one in every crowd! I mean how could any pup not desire the type of food their ancestors ate?
How do I feed raw?
I feed a grain-free dog food pre-mix. That means that I add the protein source and oil. Bentley has allergies which is one of the reasons that we are moving to raw feeding. It is a wonderful way to know exactly what is going into his system. I add the hot water to my pre-mix, and then use the convenient scoop inside my bag of Stella & Chewy’s Meal Mixers to add the correct amount. There is a chart that gives the number of scoops needed when mixed with other food and when used as a complete dinner. It is ready to eat right out of the bag.
I am also a firm believer in a grain-free diet. Have you ever seen a dog ransacking a wheat field? They are meat eaters and since dogs can’t cook, they eat raw. Stella & Chewy’s Meal Mixers only use grass-fed meat, cage-free poultry, and wild-caught fish. They add organic fruits and veggies along with some probiotics and antioxidants for extra goodness. What they don’t add are grains, glutens, fillers, artificial preservatives or colorings. You can find Stella and Chewy’s Meal Mixers in four fabulous varieties; Stella’s Super Beef, Chewy’s Chicken, Tantalizing Turkey and Savory Salmon & Cod. Each tasty flavor is available in three sizes; 3.5oz, 9oz, or 18 oz.
A Little Raw Goes a Long Way
Pet parents and veterinarians agree that feeding a raw diet will help support:
· Improved appetite and digestion
· Relief from certain allergies
· A vibrant skin and coat
· Healthy teeth and gums
· Greater stamina and vitality
· A healthier immune system
Since feeding a raw diet, I have noticed Pierre’s stomach issues have subsided and Bentley’s allergies have been kept at bay. Those are two excellent reasons for me to continue feeding them the way nature intended.
