Some dogs, especially when they are young, have an amazing ability to digest just about anything that looks like food and do well on it. However, even they have a tendency to degenerate as they grow older, usually at 4-5 years of age.
When the organs of the body, especially the all-important digestive machine, the pancreas, start to age, it is much easier on the animal’s system to be eating a diet with the digestive enzymes still intact and undamaged by heat processing. Raw pet foods provide this.
Numerous people from European countries who feed raw meat diets confirm the health benefits and longevity of large breed dogs, i.e. Great Danes, Rottweilers, Mastiffs, etc. to ages of 15 years or older. This reality is nearly unheard of in our country, except those companion pets on raw meat diets. Wouldn’t you want the same for your favorite furry companion?
