How did you hear about raw feeding?

Caesar: @Life.with.caesar

I heard about raw feeding from an online Rottweiler forum. I put up a post about Caesar’s allergies and had an overwhelming response telling me to switch his diet from kibble to Raw.

‍

‍

Bodhi: @Bodhitheridgey‍

Even though one of Bodhi’s owners grew up on a property with working dogs (who were primarily fed raw food), I believe articles on social media were probably what contributed to us going back to basics and feeding a diet that dogs would naturally eat in the wild. It just made sense.

‍

Macie: @Macies_goldenlife

After doing lots of research on ways to get my dog to eat/be interested in food as a puppy as she was not at all interested in her dry food/kibble or any other β€˜typical’ dog food on the market.

‍

‍

Fi: @Fiorellatheiggy

We were recommended raw feeding by a friend when I was seriously struggling with Fiorella’ s stomach issues and constant vet trips, no matter what recommendation was given by the vet it never seemed to get better.

‍

‍

‍Cali: @Cali.lab

We saw Big Dog products in Pet Stock while we were looking at transitioning from puppy food, after some online research of RAW diets (and some common sense about wanting our dog to stay as wild as possible) along with seeing what the Big Dog the company was all about on their socials, this was a no brainer.

‍

‍Rascal @heyitsrascal_

I heard about raw feeding through the dog insta community as well a few of my friends who raw fed so I was keen to do more research to see if this something I could also do!

What made you make the switch to a raw diet?

Kaos and Mayhem: @Absolute_kaos1

Kaos was a super fussy eater. After investigating a raw food diet I thought we have nothing to lose so gave Big Dog Pet Foods a go. He absolutely demolished it straight away so we haven’t looked back.

‍

‍

Phoenix: @phoenix_n_rex

Originally it came from a desire to spoil, but once I started researching more it was clear that the health benefits were enormous.

‍

‍

Maverick and Watson: @Laurens_pack

All my pets have been raw fed since I go them! We feed raw because I believe it’s their biologically appropriate diet and I see all the benefits such as shiny coats, clean teeth, enjoying their food, keeps them lean and healthy a weight and tiny poo’s.

‍

Oakley: @oakley_thesnag

For months we struggled with Oakley’s digestive health. We tried prescription diets, canned foods, cooked foods but nothing worked. Until we discovered raw feeding through our Instagram feed, and the Big Dog brand.

‍

‍

Fi: @Fiorellatheiggy

I really wanted Fiorella to live her best life after being fed only puppy food her entire life at a puppy farm constantly pumping out puppies for them. I felt I owed it to her to give her the best of everything to ensure she lives out her days healthy and happy.

‍

Marshall: @Marshall_thegoldenr

Marsh was getting a bit chunky - and we heard all the great benefits so we made the switch!

‍

‍

Why did you choose to feed Big Dog Pet Foods?

Arri and Kirra: @twoadventurepups ‍

We started on Big Dog when the dogs were puppies as it was easier than prepping it ourselves with all the ratio changes for a growing pup. We chose Big Dog due to the transparency in the ingredient lists (no hidden nasties).

‍

‍

Kaos and Mayhem: @Absolute_kaos1

I chose Big Dog Pet Foods as after reading all the information on their website it explained everything I needed to know about raw feeding. Such an easy meal which has everything you need in just one patty. You don’t have to add other meats and supplements because it has it all in it.

‍

Yogi: @the.real.yogi.bear ‍

I chose Big Dog because of the high quality ingredients, the range of flavours and the convenience.

‍

‍

Cali: @Cali.lab

Word of mouth, extensive research and sticking with Australian owned and made were all things that made the choice of Big Dog easy. The food is made in a facility that meets human grade food production levels…. No brainer, Big Dog obviously cares.

‍

Maverick and Watson: @Laurens_pack

Because it’s an Australian company with high quality ingredients and allows raw feeding to be easier by saving the hassle of sourcing the ingredients yourself.

‍

‍

Macie: @Macies_goldenlife

It seemed much more practical for me to not stress about the balance of a raw diet, Big Dog Pet Foods does it all which is incredibly convenient.Β

What are some noticeable changes you’ve seen in your pet after switching to a raw diet?

Howard and Ned: @Howardandnedthegriffons

Howard has lost weight and actually eats his food when it is out down. Doesn’t let it sit there all day! Ned’s poo’s are firmer and don’t smell AT ALL!

‍

‍

Bodhi: @Bodhitheridgey

Energy levels definitely improved, people started asking whether he had just been washed (when he hadn’t been) because his coat always shines, and a raw food diet seems to sustain him a lot longer than any dry food did.

‍

‍

Yogi: @the.real.yogi.bear

The changes have been amazing! We noticed his skin and coat health have improve immensely! He has higher energy levels and has even lost weight.

‍

‍

Oakley: @oakley_thesnag

Although we’ve only been on Big Dog for a short time I’ve noticed significant improvements within Oakley. The major one being a boost in energy & stamina! Followed by skin improvement & hair regrow, and non-stinky breath.

‍

‍

Phoenix: @phoenix_n_rex

The biggest difference is how his body digests and absorbs the raw food. He has more consistent energy level, less wastage (poos) and shine in his coat.

‍

‍

Rascal @heyitsrascal_

Rascal truly thrives on a raw diet. I’ve noticed his energy levels increase, his coat get more soft and shiny (definitely no β€˜dog’ smell), his teeth have never been cleaner and his overall well-being has improved tremendously.

‍

‍

What is your favourite thing about the raw diet? Β 

Caesar: @Life.with.caesar

The best thing about a raw diet would have to be the fact that I actually don’t have to wash Caesar as often. His coat would have a certain dirty smell and feel to it constantly but since switching to Raw, the smell is gone and his coat is smooth, soft and shiny.

‍

Howard and Ned: @Howardandnedthegriffons

Convenient little sachets, food isn’t sitting out all day, I know the boys are getting the best and feeling their best!

‍

‍

Marshall: @Marshall_thegoldenr ‍

No sloppy poops, easy to chuck in a dish for dinner with how it’s packed! Also easy storage in the freezer. Doesn’t take up much space :)

‍

‍

Kaos and Mayhem: @Absolute_kaos1

My favourite thing is that it’s so easy to work with. I store the patties in the freezer, so every morning and night I get how many patties I need and then leave in the fridge to thaw out. But this isn’t my only favourite thing. What goes in must come out. Yes I’m talking about the amount of POO Kaos and Mayhem create. You can imagine how much POO πŸ’© we have in our backyard. Well Big Dog Pet Foods have decreased the amount we have to pick up. Their POOS are smaller & seriously not as smelly.

‍

Macie: @Macies_goldenlife

Less stress, less poops, less shedding but most importantly a happy and healthy pupΒ 

‍

‍

Arri and Kirra: @twoadventurepups

The health benefits #1 but small and non-stinky poops close #2.
