Best Raw Dog Food?
You are looking for the best raw dog food available, but there are a lot of companies making claims. This causes uncertainty and skeptics in folks. How do you know you are getting the best quality? Here are 5 things to keep in mind when deciding what to feed your dogs:
Where does the company source their meat?
Your dog’s health depends on the quality of the food you feed them. This is why pet food companies should be transparent about where they source the ingredient that goes into your dog’s food. Here at BJ’s Raw Pet Food, we source meat from small traditional farms, because we want to sell you only the best raw dog food.
Is the meat only the trim? This is the leftover after the human grade is removed. The parts you would consider waste and throw away? While this is probably an improvement on kibble, it’s still not the complete balance dogs require.

You want to have organs included in the mix, because they offer many vitamins and minerals that are needed for a balanced meal. Consider the Prey Model Raw (PMR) diet where dogs in the wild consumes whole preys. This includes the organs.
Yes, dogs should eat bones! Bones are good for their teeth and oral hygiene. This is why you want to see that it is part of their dietary intake. If the company mixes it in as a whole animal, then it will be the natural proportion you want to see. If there aren’t enough bones, it could result in calcium deficiencies. Make sure they don’t add bones as a filler, but the right proportion.
Veggies and Herbs
Now it is true that wolves and other wild dogs don’t eat a lot of vegetation, but they do eat some. This is why when dogs are eating mixes, you want veggies and/or herbs mixed in. These veggies have important fibers, vitamins, and minerals. The enzymes from the veggies will help with digestion. Herbs have all sorts of medicinal properties that benefit dogs. These veggies and herbs should never be in large portions. Unfortunately, some companies use lots of veggies and grains as fillers to save the company money.
