“Regardless of how good the ingredients were that went in in the beginning, by the time he gets down that processing line and it’s been cooked and extruded at over 400°, there is not only a lot of nutrition that’s lost but there’s actually a lot of things that are produced chemically within that food that legitimately causes cancer."

"Animals need unadulterated fresh, whole foods that are moisture-dense. Animals don't need grains, fillers, artificial preservatives, colors, additives, chemicals, by-products or processed foods."

"If you were to give your child an all-in-one, nutritionally, scientifically, doctor approved diet which is dry and contains nothing natural what so ever and nothing fresh... you'd be put in prison! but that is what we're advised to feed our animals."

"A lot of people think grain-free means no sugar; that couldn't be any further from the truth"

Rachel’s Raw Fed Dogs is a meal planning and advice service based on the Prey Model Raw diet for dogs. Rachel’s Raw Fed Dogs does not assume any liability for the results of implementing a raw diet. Implement meal plans at your own discretion and please use your best judgement when monitoring your dog’s transition to raw. I am not a vet and cannot offer medical advice; please stop raw and see your vet if diarrhea lasts longer than 48 hours or if stool contains blood (bright red) or is black and tarry, or if your dog is showing lethargy or signs of abdominal pain (bloating, groaning, or panting rapidly or avoidance response when belly is touched). Raw has amazing health benefits but safety first!
