The raw dog food nutrition concept is based on the natural eating habits of the wolf, the dog’s ancestor. And by preparing the food for their dog themselves, the owner can also be sure of what the dog is consuming, which is not always the case with industrially produced dog food. If you want to try this form of nutrition, you should inquire beforehand how properly you bark and what you have to pay attention to so that the dog eats adequate and appropriate food.
Why is finished feed so popular?
Through intensive advertising and sponsorship from veterinarians, the pet food industry has succeeded in making many dog and cat owners believe that their animals can only be adequately fed with dry food. How did the animals survive 60 years ago when there was still no industrially produced food? Pets are – supported by advertising – humanized; the needs of the animals are adapted to those of the people. But it is not like that; animals are independent beings with their own needs and like things that we cannot understand and sometimes find disgusting. It is also very convenient to put the bag or can up and down in the bowl. With ready-made industrial food, the focus is not on the dog but the person!
