Yes, Big Dog raw food diets are very beneficial for pets with Arthritis. Our diets exclude poor quality ingredients such as processed wheat products, rancid fats, salt and any other inflammatory arthritis aggravating ingredients. What our diets do include is healthy, high quality nutrition from natural sources. All of our raw food diets contain crushed cartilage and bone which contain the building blocks for maintaining healthy joints.
Fresh bone and cartilage are packed with calcium and other vital minerals, such as glucosamine, chondroitin and collagen as well as anti-inflammatory omega-3 essential fatty acids which promote cellular health, decrease inflammation and help with healthy ageing.
Our most suitable diets would be our Sensitive Skin diet and our Wellbeing diet. Our Sensitive Skin diet is our highest omega-3 containing product loaded with fresh Tasmanian Salmon. This diet helps improve joint health through its anti-inflammatory properties which are boosted by the herb turmeric which is also used in this recipe. Our Wellbeing diet is great for joint issues that are driven by weight. Being a lower fat diet, it naturally assists in reaching and maintaining a healthy weight which will decrease additional pressure on the joints. Both our Sensitive Skin and Wellbeing diets contain cold-pressed coconut oil, shown to have many health benefits for our pets, including weight control, anti-inflammatory properties, anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties.
