PERGUNTAS FREQUENTES

  • What is Raw Feeding?
    Raw Feeding as its name implies consists of raw food, this food is given to carnivorous animals, in this case we dedicate ourselves to companion animals, these being the dog and the cat and we offer the PMR model which means prey model raw. Raw Feeding is the mostprimitive/primordial and ancestral food that can exist, because if an animal does not have an owner it will instinctively hunt as it did in its ancestors (ex: the dog descends from the wolf ), this feeding will give the animal the prey as black as possible than it would be at the time of hunting. From meat alone it is possible to acquire all the essential nutrients for life, achieving greater immunity and longevity than consuming processed foods with additives.
  • How can I get started?
    It can be quite easy, but it can also be boring depending on the animal's habit, and other factors however there are plenty of ways to get around this situation, until the animal itself is a natural lover of this regime. It is important to be informed as much as possible, to know the right dosages for each type of animal, taking into account, weight, size and age/activity. Also keep in mind that raw feeding can and should be the integral food in the animal's life, however it can also be given partially along with the food chosen by the owner. To start the new menu it is important to do a weaning, in which the portion of fresh meat is gradually increased until the ration is reduced completely and finally removed. For animals that are more demanding, the meat can also be shredded, especially the organs in the early stages, and shredded less and less until the whole pieces are accepted. The food can also be transferred to a non-stick skillet over low heat, reducing the frying time daily until it is completely raw. All these are options to consider, however they are not always necessary, as normally any animal will accept this new regime and to the point of being completely addicted to it.
  • The day-to-day with Raw Feeding !
    It's a lot simpler than it looks, It is possible to do Raw Feeding at home, without assistance, but it takes time, effort and some level of knowledge especially at the beginning. Packages come packaged in daily portions which, in case there is more than one animal, can be divided (eg 2 dogs where one eats approx. 400g daily and the other eats approx. 300g daily can buy a package of 700gr and when they serve, separate the dose for each one). As a rule, Raw Feeding is served once a day in the morning, because for owners in general it is easier to remove the packaging from the freezer the day before and let it thaw in the morning next be completely defrosted and ready to serve! In the beginning it is super important to monitor the animal's feces until they have the perfect consistency, each waste will be the best way to understand if the food is being well accepted or if there are changes to be made, knowing that at the beginning it is normal to have changes in them, this because each animal is an individual being, and just as we can react better or worse to certain ingredients, as a rule everyone reacts well even those who have health problems in some cases and may even get rid of them just by switching food.
  • What animals can eat Raw Feeding?
    Any dog or cat at any age in their lives starting from babies to seniors, any breed or size. If the animal has diseases or conditions, it will always have to be advised by the veterinarian that it is followed, knowing that this type of food is hypoallergenic and without the addition of chemicals and additives. Animals with skin diseases often manage to see their problems end just by switching to food.
  • Homemade Raw Feeding VS Raw Feeding Company
    Raw Feeding can be prepared at home, in fact there are many incredible owners out there who do it, all over the world. The preparation of this food requires a series of hygiene, safety and sterilization care, as the meat is quite susceptible to contamination. Made at home requires special care and attention, although it can be cheaper, it does not have all the procedures that you would have in a certified company for this purpose. In our company, the procedures are carried out in compliance with a series of criteria and mandatory laws, we have rapid cooling cells that will deep-freeze the food without it gaining water particles or crystals that could be enemies of the quality of the food, we have staff trained in HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) and trained in meat treatment. We work with mandatory material for the food industry, and our packaging goes in vacuum for better packaging and food safety. All our meat comes from suppliers certified for human consumption, that is, everything we do is controlled to the minimum detail so that there are no errors or problems, in this way the final product will obviously become more expensive due to the company's investment in conditions , equipment, training and products.
  • Why the Raw Feeding Prey Model instead of BARF?
    Raw Feeding practiced by us is the prey model, the most similar to the whole prey, while Barf is the combination of meat and/or fish, vegetables, fruits, herbs, dairy products and often makes supplementation (this in most cases, and Portuguese companies). The difference between the two is that one is really based on an omnivorous diet and the other is carnivorous, which causes some confusion and controversy between opinions because if an animal is hungry, the most correct thing would be to try to hunt or feed on others. Smaller animals would hardly look for vegetables, fruits, although if they were found they could perfectly feed on them, but that does not mean that they are part of the primordial and primitive nature of the species, at least in dogs and cats. Furthermore, when crushed, food loses a lot of nutrients, and more. This is also why supplements are used as compensation that are often given along with food. In the case of raw feeding (PMR) this does not happen, the meat does not undergo any alteration, only cuts of several pieces to the appropriate sizes of the animal that will ingest it later. Raw feeding whole prey will also bring a lot more mechanical dental action to the animal, which no longer happens when it eats crushed or paste/pate foods, in most cases gaining a lot of tartar that also triggers diseases of cardiac forum and etc...
