Why a Frozen Raw Diet is Better For Your Pet Than Dehydrated Food

Dehydrated raw food for dogs is okay...if you're traveling, but it's a far cry from feeding your pooch the real thing. 

It reminds me of the old powdered orange drink, Tang. They used to advertise that astronauts drank it. It may have been convenient for space travel, but geez - orange powder? About as appetizing as...as kibble. (You knew I was going to say that).

In any case, I would argue that the same applies to dehydrated raw food - just add water and you've got your raw meal. Convenient - maybe, but where's the chew? Where are the dental benefits? Instead of your cat or dog cleaning their teeth on hunky chunks of meat, your pet ends up lapping up his food like a bowl of porridge. 

I'm also quite sure that the taste isn't anywhere near as good as raw food in its original form. Of course if you've been chosen to go on the Mars One mission along with your dog, then it's okay to feed dehydrated. But for life on Earth, real food always is best.

On another note as we prepare for the joyous holiday season and hopefully fly the coop: Have you made plans yet to board your pooch or kitty? Like in a home environment? If so, check out this new dog boarding website where you can book online.
