As pet owners, our animals are much more than just companions. They are members of the family and deserve our commitment to ensure they live the healthiest, happiest life they can. Part of that commitment is what we feed our pets, and unfortunately, not all pet food is created equal. For many who seek the best for their furry friends, the search for the perfect pet food can be a frustrating endeavor. But, envision a food that is as nutritious as it is delicious, with each ingredient serving a specific purpose. An alternative that is ‘raw’ in its most potent form, harnessing the power of nature to bring out the very best in your pet. Welcome to Rawternative – a fresh perspective on pet food.
Escape the Ordinary
Think back to the time when animals roamed freely in the wild, where they ate what nature provided for them, fueling their bodies with fresh, raw nutrition. Can you imagine what our pets can achieve if they were getting the same level of nutrition daily? This is precisely what Rawternative aims to provide, a range of pet food where nothing is over-processed or artificial.
At Rawternative, we follow the simple philosophy that pets thrive on the same type and quality of food their wild ancestors did. Our pet food is designed to imitate what your pet's ancestors would eat in the wild — raw, natural, high-protein diets without any artificial preservatives or fillers.
The Rawternative Difference
What makes Rawternative stand out from typical pet food is our dedication to delivering wholesome, balanced diets reflecting nature's best offerings. We take utmost pride that our products are made from the freshest, locally sourced ingredients - from high-quality meats, organ meats, to fresh fruits and vegetables.
These ingredients are then gently air-dried to retain their natural nutrients, ensuring your pets receive optimal nutrition in every bite. This gentle process means your pet is getting food as close to its natural state as possible. No unnecessary fillers, no artificial additives, just pure, raw goodness.
Benefits of a Raw Diet
Switching to a raw food diet can bring about incredible changes in your pet's health. You can expect to see:
1. Improved Digestion – Raw food is easier for pets to digest and can lead to better nutrient absorption.
2. Shinier Coat and Healthier skin – The balanced nutrition from a raw diet often helps improve your pet's coat and skin condition.
3. Increased Energy Levels – Higher quality, digestible protein and fats provide more energy.
4. Natural Dental Health – The act of chewing raw meat naturally cleans a dog's teeth, reducing bad breath and dental diseases.
5. Weight Control – Meals with higher protein and lower carbs help minimize weight gain and control obesity in pets.
Making the Switch
We understand that shifting to a raw diet can seem daunting, but Rawternative is here to help make the transition as smooth as possible. We offer a range of products to suit the varied needs and tastes of different pets, alongside professional guidance from our expert nutritionists who can assist you in gradually introducing raw foods to your pet's diet.
Transitioning Your Pet To Rawternative: A Step-By-Step Guide
If you've decided to start feeding your pet Rawternative pet food, it's crucial to make the transition slowly to prevent any potential digestive upset. Here's an easy-to-follow guide to help you do just that.
1. Mix it Up: Start by replacing a small portion of your pet's current food with Rawternative food. A good ratio to start with is about 75% of their old food and 25% Rawternative. Serve this mix for about 2 to 3 days.
2. Slow and Steady: After the first few days, gradually increase the amount of Rawternative food and decrease the amount of their old food. Every couple of days, up the ratio of Rawternative food by 25%. By the end of the week, you should be at a 50% old food, 50% Rawternative mix.
3. Transition Phase: Keep this 50/50 ratio for another week. This phase helps your pet's digestive system slowly adjust to the higher protein content and different nutrient profile in the raw diet.
4. Almost There: After the transition phase, you can start reducing the old food further. Your pet should now be eating a mix that's 25% old food and 75% Rawternative. Maintain this ratio for about three to four days.
5. Complete the Transition: Finally, after about two weeks from when you started, you can fully switch your pet over to 100% Rawternative pet food.
Remember, every pet is unique, and some may take longer to adjust than others. Stay patient, keep a keen eye on their behavior, and look out for signs such as increased energy levels, improved coat quality, and enthusiasm during meal times. If your pet shows any signs of discomfort or refuses to eat, reach out to your vet or our in-house nutrition experts who can provide personalized advice based on your pet's needs and monitor their progress.
