WHAT IS FREEZE-DRIED RAW DOG FOOD?
Raw freeze dried dog food is usually made as a grain-free, protein-rich dog food preserved in its natural state. This means raw foods are freeze dried to make them shelf stable.
Most freeze dried dog foods require you reintroduce the water that’s removed during the freeze drying process, prior to feeding your dog. This also means freeze dried dog foods weigh less, take up less space, and are more nutrient dense than traditional kibbles and dog food.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF FREEZE-DRIED RAW DOG FOOD?
Raw dog food has many benefits over high-heat processed, filler-laden kibbles. A raw meat diet for dogs is said to be Biologically Appropriate. You may hear raw foods as being part of an Alpha Prey diet or Biologically Appropriate Raw Foods diet (BARF).
These diets are comprised of the foods Mother Nature intended for your dog to eat. Your dog’s digestive system is uniquely designed to process and utilize raw meat. These seems strange to humans, because we would get sick if ate raw meat. But your dog’s system is DESIGNED to eat prey animals they would catch in the wild. For dogs, raw dog food is easier to digest than cooked kibbles.
Depending on the type of raw dog food you select, your chosen dog food may be considered hypoallergenic, especially if the food is made from a single protein source. Keep in mind that when it comes to raw dog food, quality matters. Many dogs develop allergic symptoms when fed inferior protein sources. It may be a reaction to meal-like ingredients made from pieces and parts left over during processing of meat for human consumption.
