Five Reasons Science Says You Should Feed Your Dog Raw Food

Acabonac Farms |

As the adage goes, you are what you eat. What we feed our pets impacts their mood, longevity, energy levels, and bodily function. The consensus today is that a raw dog food diet is the optimal one for canines. Raw dog food from quality, trusted sources like Acabonac Pet provide the nutrient rich whole foods that dogs need to live their lives to the fullest.  

When you feed your dog raw food, you’re giving them exactly what their bodies are primed to digest and take full advantage of. The science is quite clear, and at Acabonac Pet, we produce some of the world’s highest quality small-batch raw dog food. Here are some of the benefits of making the switch to raw.

Immune System Boost

Highly processed, carbohydrate-rich dry kibble is associated with increased inflammation and a weakened immune system in dogs. Pivoting from manufactured and processed to raw and natural may help reduce stress placed on your dog’s immune system and give them an infection and disease fighting boost.

Acabonac Pet raw dog food recipes are full of Omega-3 fatty acids that play an integral role in canine immunity and overall health. Not only do Omega-3 fatty acids help boost immune function, but recent research shows that the same long-chain fatty acids found in Acabonac Pet food can also improve brain function and support healthier, shinier coats.

Nutrients for across-the-board health

Raw, protein-based food tastes amazing to your dog. But their tongue isn’t the only thing benefiting. Acabonac Pet raw food recipes are nutrient dense powerhouse meals that check all the boxes when it comes to holistic dog nutrition. Fresh raw fruits, vegetables, and seeds are included to provide a wealth of health benefits including fiber for better digestion, antioxidants for immune health, and a great boost for the metabolism.

The foundation of our raw recipes, however, is meat. Dogs need meat, and the single most important macronutrient to them is protein. Whether your dog prefers beef, chicken, lamb, or pork, the main ingredient in all our meals is fresh, raw, real meat. 

Weight management made easy, joint health benefits

Premium raw dog food is pre-portioned to make weight management easy. Keeping close tabs on your dog’s eating habits can ensure that they do not end up in an over or underweight state. Pre-portioning makes this important duty easy and automatic. Keeping your dog at the optimal weight is crucial to staving off many of the most common ailments dogs face including joint pain and inflammation. Studies have shown that even a minor weight reduction can alleviate painful conditions caused by joint diseases like arthritis. 

Poor portion planning also results in food that goes bad. When bags of kibble sit open for long periods of time, the fats they contain can turn rancid, making it dangerous to consume.

Reduce the risk of cancer

Cancer is often accompanied by chronic inflammation and oxidative stress, which is an imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants that can lead to tissue damage. An antioxidant rich diet can help fight the onset of such conditions and reduce the risk for developing cancer. It’s no secret that antioxidants are effective cancer-thwarting warriors for both humans and animals, so the reasoning behind feeding your dogs a diet that contains them is obvious. Our raw dog food is packed with dietary antioxidants found in the fresh vegetables in our recipes.

Real meat makes your dog really happy

We said it once and we’ll say it again. Your dog loves meat. That dry kibble in their bowl? Not meat.

Powdered protein filler used in dry dog food can never replace fresh, high-quality meat protein found in raw dog food. The meat in Acabonac Pet recipes is all sourced from regional farms. No factories, no fillers, no shipping overseas.

Not only does real raw meat satisfy any dog’s palate, but research has shown that real meat is more digestible and is strongly linked to mood-regulating hormones in dogs such as serotonin. That means when your dog is able to consume raw meat, they’re much more inclined to be in a good mood. Real meat makes them… happier! And a happy dog means a happy owner.
