Feeding your dog the way nature intended, increases your pet’s metabolic rate, its activity levels and its healthy life span. The effect will be more rapid if you combine the Artisan Raw diet with regular exercise.
Your pet will have much-improved breath, minimal tartar build-up, and beautifully clean teeth; all without having to visit the pet dentist or brushing. Periodontal disease that is so prevalent with pets fed grain-based diets is almost nonexistent. It is said that kibble is crunchy so it cleans the teeth, which is the equivalent of claiming that hard cookies will clean your teeth. By eating raw meaty bones your dog has to chew through soft bone and meat, this scrapes the plaque off the teeth and provides gum massage that increases circulation. Recreational bones are harder than your dog's teeth and so instead of crunching through these types of bone your dog just grinds away eventually wearing down their teeth.
All pets age, but pet owners who switch their older pets to a raw diet usually find that any degenerative disease their pet has contracted, becomes less of a problem. Our raw diet is not a wonder drug, but it has reversed many aggravating degenerative conditions and has given relief to a variety of diseases. Expect to see your pet's arthritic conditions and mobility improve.
Another result of Artisan Raw is a healthy digestive tract. You will notice a big change in your dog's poop volume and odor as Artisan Raw uses no fillers or by products. This leads to smaller completely biodegradable poops.
After one week, poop will break down into a dry white crumble that dissolves into the ground. You will not have to pick up poop in the dog run! Why? A raw diet is more readily absorbed than grain fed diets, producing less volume and odor. Odorous poops are a result of improper or incomplete digestion of nutrients.
One of the first changes you will notice when you start feeding your dog Artisan Raw is a renewed shine to your dogs coat. You no longer need vet visits, harsh medicated washes, antibiotics, cortisone shots and cortisone tablets, because the natural, healthy, and raw diet supplies nutrients that are missing in processed diets.
Living enzymes MUST be present in a dog's food. Enzymes break down and utilize food to maximize the digestive system’s effectiveness. They are only present in raw unaltered food. The cooking process of kibble destroys these vital enzymes thereby stressing the pancreas to produce the necessary proteins to function.
Processed foods and drugs have seriously depleted the natural vitality and immune systems of many pets. Artisan Raw normalizes the immune system and causes it to strengthen by removing the stress caused by the daily digestion of processed foods. Because Artisan Raw contains a balance of essential fatty acids and other immune normalizing and strengthening nutrients, it rids the body of infections, reducing inflammatory conditions.
