6 Ways a Raw Diet can Benefit your Dog

Did you know we deliver dog food? Many of our clients’ pups have ‘Benyfit’ raw food delivered by us each week.  Our convenient delivery service not only saves the hassle of buying direct, but there’s no minimum order and we sell at cost price, so its excellent value. 

Not sure about whether a raw diet is right fo your dog? Here are the ‘Benyfits’ that we see on our own dogs and our clients report on their pups as well:

1. Firmer stools and less gas

Is your pup’s poop tricky to pick up? A bit messy and liquidy? With a raw diet you’ll kiss that problem goodbye. And much as we love our furry friends, their stinky bottoms can sometimes ruin the fun! The good news is that’salmost never a problem with the raw dog food diet, so you might want to try it!

2. Silky, beautiful coat 

The raw dog food diet gives dogs healthier skin and coat because their dietary needs are fully taken care of. No need to give extra fish oil, or add a ton of supplements, just let nature do what it is supposed to do.

3. Helps with allergies

Are you aware that the top food allergens for dogs are wheat and corn? By eliminating them from your dog’s diet, you’ll end up with a healthier pup to spend time with. You could save on vets bills and have a happier, healthier dog.

4. Cleaner teeth and fresher breath

Is your dog’s breath a bit whiffy? A raw diet helps eliminate that problem, through healthier gums and cleaner teeth. Now you wont have to dread those fishy morning yawns!

“Ziggy has been on a raw diet with Benyfit since he was a puppy and we can’t recommend it highly enough. His coat is beautiful, his teeth are white and in the 3 years we’ve had him he’s never been ill. It’s also much more cost-effective than you’d think. Having Bruno deliver it to us each week is the icing on the cake. We don’t ever think about dog food, it arrives with him when he gets home from ‘school’ and we just add it to the day-care bill!’     Lauren Leopold, Paw-rent to Ziggy.

5. Better energy levels

Ever felt that your pup has either too much energy or not enough? What they eat has an effect on their behaviour and their energy levels. A surge of carbs and additives from kibble or commercial food can give dogs a spike in energy making them restless and then the drop can make them feel lethargic and tired. A raw dog food can stabilise these highs and lows, making for a more peaceful life all round.

7. Health benefits 

The raw dog food diet also features a lot of fatty acids and other immune-system boosting nutrients, plus it reduces the incidence of inflammatory conditions significantly. Also, raw feeding can minimize the possibility of having a diabetic pooch by preventing them from having spikes in blood sugar. The decreased possibility of inflammatory conditions and the boosted immune system help in preventing and addressing arthritis too.
