The Benefits of a Mrs. Meadys' Raw Diet for Cats & Dogs
The best thing you can do for your cat or dog's health.
Great for Cats & Dogs with Allergies
No More Allergies
Many dogs have allergies, it is usually shown in their skin and coat (or lack of coat.) Most pet foods are filled with grains, fillers, dyes, and preservatives. It is common knowledge these days that the ingredients in most pet foods are appalling. Dog allergies are usually caused by feeding an inappropriate diet of grains and rice. Some pets may also be allergic to different kinds of proteins as well. It is interesting to note that it is possible to be allergic to something in cooked form and not in the raw form. Allergies can also be environmental; pets with heightened immune systems are susceptible to the affects of environmental allergies. This leads back to the problems associated with periodontal disease. Many poor animals suffer with extreme itch caused by allergies all of their lives, their owners are usually at a loss to help them. Many dogs are treated with antibiotics and steroids, the cause is rarely considered and the answer is often as simple as switching to a biologically appropriate diet.
Cats & Dogs on Diets
Pet obesity has become an epidemic and it's no wonder considering all of the fillers found in commercial dry dog food. As with people, obesity can lead to a variety of diseases, disorders and other complications in dogs. In a 2008 study, the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention estimated that 44% of dogs were overweight or obese. That's approximately 3 million dogs in the Canada alone. A natural raw diet consisting of lean meats like horse and beef (with less than 6% fat content), fish and vegetables can reduce and maintain your pet's weight to an optimal level while increasing its overall health.
Better Dental Hygene: Whiter Teeth, Stronger Gums, Better Breath
A raw diet cleans your cat or dog's teeth naturally with no tartar build-up and strengthens his gums. Your pet's breath will become fresher. Best of all, you'll save a visit to the pet dentist.
Skin & Coat
A raw diet improves the condition of your cat or dog's coat leaving it shiny and with luster.
A raw diet normalizes and strengthens your pet's the immune system. It reduces inflammatory conditions and waves good-bye to infections.
Pet owners that switch their older pets to raw diets usually find that whatever degenerative disease their pet has contracted, becomes less of a problem.
Stool Volume & Odor
On a raw diet your cat or dog will evacuate a lot less poop because there is no fillers, there's a moisture content of over 70% and the body absorbs all of the food. Furthermore, your pet's poop will not smell. But that's not all - a raw diet is easier to digest and virtually eliminates any gas issues that pets frequently get from eating kibble.
After a few months you can expect to see much greater mobility in your pet. This is part of the reason so many older pets have a new lease on life when switched to a raw diet.
Lean Body Mass
By feeding a raw diet, your pet will lose unwanted fat and gain that much desired increase in muscle mass. This not only makes your pet look better, it increases your pet’s metabolic rate, its activity levels and its healthy life-span.
