The Truth Behind Raw Dehydrated Dog Food: Is It Still Raw?

Dehydrated foods may not seem as “raw” as fresh-raw or frozen-raw foods, but it’s important to know that they are, in fact, raw. Dehydrating dog food removes so much moisture that it stops meat and produce from the decay process without the need for any preservatives. Dehydrating is also more gentle on biological materials such as enzymes and vitamins, so they remain intact during storage and become extremely shelf-stable. This is good news for you and your dogs.

WHY RAW FOOD IS IMPORTANT FOR DOGS?

Your dogs are meant to eat raw foods. Your dogs are healthier and their bodies run more smoothly on a raw diet. Their digestive system is primed with specific bacteria killing agents and a unique stomach acid profile for a very good reason: to handle raw foods. Cooking destroys the vitamin, mineral, and enzyme content that is needed. In fact, if you feed your dog kibble, or cook fresh food, we believe it's imperative to supplement your dog's meals with digestive enzymes and vitamins, at the very least. 

The bottom line is, diet related illness in dogs is on the rise year by year. It's time to start feeding our dogs the diet they are intended to digest. Raw foods.

TOP 3 BENEFITS OF RAW DEHYDRATED

1. DEHYDRATED STORES LONGER THAN FRESH - EVEN LONGER THAN KIBBLE

Not that you'll be storing your dog food for years on end, but if you're interested in feeding a raw diet, then dehydrated is the most convenient way to go. It's also worth mentioning, that dehydrated raw is even more shelf stable than kibble. Convenience!

2. DOGS LOVE THE FULL NUTRITION TASTE OF RAW DEHYDRATED FOODS

After the food is hydrated with water, these foods are super tastey to dogs. In fact, some dogs even go for it before its rehydrated. Senior dogs and dogs with low appetites may be more inclined to eat raw dehydrated foods, likely because of the minimal processing of the ingredients.

3. BETTER INGREDIENTS

Further, dogs have a high water requirement, and they can't get that from kibble. Rehydrated food puts the water content back in the diet the way nature intended for dogs.
