The Information on this website is not all new, we simply have been blinded by the lies of "blue chip companies" who's only aim is commercial gain at the detriment of your dog through selling commercial pet food not suitable for Carnivors which is a multi billion industry per year.

A Few Thoughts and Truths

Passion for the health of our pets led us on a journey to discovering feeding raw meat and bones to our dogs and one willing cat. As we did more research and saw the difference in our pets, we wondered how we could ever have been so blinded and brain washed.

A Short Raw Feeding Story

We have been raw feeding for a few years now and our bitch had 8 puppies, we first fed them commercial dog food as we knew it would be more than likely that they would go to homes where they were fed commercial food. Our bitch who was on raw food, would chew the carcases and then give it to her pups, whenever we turned our backs for a few minutes. Getting the carcasses back from 8 puppies at 5 weeks old proved more difficult than we thought and I ended up with fingers bitten about 6 holes in them as these sweet and otherwise most loving puppies accidentally bit me in their attempt to try and hold on and get back their first taste of raw meat. Now they definitely did not react that way when I removed their pellets. Just the smell of their parents eating raw food put them in a hyperactive mode, searching for their share of the kill.
