What is ‘Raw Feeding’ And why make the switch?
Known around the world as ‘BARF’ (Biologically appropriate raw feeding), raw feeding aims to give cats and dogs a diet that is appropriate to their digestive systems and as close as possible to what they might have eaten as wild animals. The stomach pH in dogs and cats is much lower than that of humans, meaning they are able to break down raw meat and bone.
As a nation we adore our pets, and of course this extends to what we give them to eat. Dog Foods often promise the world, but on closer inspection many contain ingredients such as sugars, meat meals and meat derivatives. Natures Menu pet foods proudly show their ingredients on the front of the pack, and never add sugars, meat meals or meat derivatives.
Bones are a fantastic source of nutrition to both dogs and cats. They contain glucosamine, calcium and phosphorus, and many are rich in omega 3 fats, too Raw bones also make a fantastic natural toothbrush!
A wide variety of their raw foods contain minced bone, with the exception of beef mince and tripe
Cats can be introduced to raw meaty bones such as duck wings, chicken wings, and duck necks from 10 weeks of age. With cats, always keep an eye on where they take their bones, as they have a tendency to hide them where you least expect. Benefits can include improved skin health, improved joint health and firmer stools. In addition to this, chewing can be an immensely satisfying and relaxing experience for both dogs and cats. We recommend that you offer a raw meaty bone or chew 1-3 times a week to help keep your pet’s teeth clean, as well as providing an enjoyable, relaxing and healthy treat.

- Fresher breath, cleaner whiter teeth
