At Houndbound we are advocates of Raw feeding and believe Raw is best. It supplys all the essential proteins, amino acids, fatty acids, vitamins and minerals our dogs need to thrive.
As obvious as it may sound, many people forget that dogs were in existence long before man created kibble! Dry foods were invented for the convenience of man, not for the benefits of dogs.
Dogs, both domesticated and wild are members of the carnivore family and are anatomically built for eating meat not dry biscuits. Their teeth are designed for tearing and chewing, their short intestines avoid the putrefaction of flesh foods and their powerful digestive juices can even dissolve lumps of bone.
A BARF (Biological Appropriate Raw Food or Bones and Raw Food) diet is based on fresh foods such as raw meats, raw bone, raw vegetables and minerals and are designed to mimic what your dog would eat in the wild.
Most people do not realize what they may actually be feeding their beloved family pet. Some commercial dog foods contain a high percentage of fillers , such as cereals, grains and soya which dogs just simply aren't designed to eat. This can lead to long term health problems such as yeast infections, itchy skin, ear and anal gland issues. Some dog foods contain meat meal and derivatives, which can include feet, feathers and other undesirable parts of an animal.
So at houndbound we use and sell Nutriment Raw Dog food. They pride them selves on the quality of their ingredient and don't use any fillers in their food. They use British meat from human grade sources so you can be sure your pet is getting the best, freshest, most natural food on the market.
