Feeding your dog raw food

Thank you for visiting the Play Fetch website. The site highlights on the joy that dogs can bring to your life, but many dogs aren`t fortunate enough to have a loving family. We are working with rehoming centres across the country to help them home our furry friends, please bookmark this website and come back soon to view the dogs that need you to give them the great life they deserve.

There are two definitive camps regarding raw feeding to dogs. There are those who believe a natural diet has been the staple of dogs for thousands of years and that a modern diet of processed foods do not provide a full nutritional balance. This bad balance is due to the destruction of nutrients during the preparation stage and high volume of grain used. Other dog owners however believe that there is a health risk to dogs and to their human counterpart of feeding raw food. No scientific research has proven that a raw dog food diet has any benefit to the dog, although that argument is controversial in itself as it is believed much of the research has been funded by dog food companies.
