Raw Fooding Resources
There is a very large and diverse base of resources available on the internet today for the new and established raw fooding pet parents. While we strive to cover the basics and expand where necessary throughout the blog and FAQ sections of our site, we do not have all the answers. We encourage you to educate yourself on the topic, you can so so by reading and learning as much as you can from multiple sources, on the topic of real fooding. We strongly recommend that you question conventional wisdom, and using common sense, come to your own conclusions.

One can rightfully ask: why raw and not kibble? Pet parents are asking that every day, and some are coming to the realization that while their fur kids may be doing well, they could be doing better. This is one of the reasons pet parents switch their pets if their pets do not have some major health problem. They switch because they believe their dogs or cats can have better quality lives if they are fed a raw diet.
