Raw Food Diet

Raw, the way nature intended

As humans we are encouraged to maintain a natural diet, free of additives and preservatives, so why should your pets be any different?


When we eat better, we feel better and your pets are no exception. The idea dates back to when animals use to eat in the wild, a mix of raw meat, bone and organs, with no preservatives, additives or grains, the way nature intended.


Raw feeding has gained popularity in New Zealand and throughout the world because pets can gain better all-round health from teeth to tail with a quality, well formulated raw diet. Key benefits associated with feeding a natural raw diet are improved oral health, reduced allergies, a stronger immune system, muscle growth and repair and less droppings – making the clean-up easier!
