Raw vs Kibble

Have you been thinking about feeding a raw diet because you know it makes sense.  Have you hesitated because of the cost or raw high quality human grade meat.  We hear quite often from people that they believe feeding a raw diet is expensive and can be a burden on their budget.  It can appear this way initially but compare below and you will see that you can save quite a bit by having a pet on a natural raw diet.
Feeding a Kibble Diet :(
Feeding a Raw Diet :)
Costs of food
$.50 per day to $5.00 per day
Cost of food to prepare yourself. Depending on how well you know your butcher.  If you own livestock or have other sources of meat such as hunting, fishing, friends with livestock, you can prepare the diet for much less.
$.25 per day on up however we do not recommend getting your canine hooked on fillet mignon or your cat on sushi.

Raw benefits puppies in so many ways.  It’s easily digestible so pups & kittens won’t be tempted to snack on poop.  Again garlic is a natural de-wormer.  High QUALITY protein promotes optimal slow growth preventing dysplasia & pano.  Milk thistle seed cleanses the liver after vaccinations.  Natural calcium for healthy teeth & bones, which also reduces excess growth.  Stool & urine odor are reduced to make cleaning accidents more bearable.
Included
Stool odor, constancy & size
Smelly, large, gooey, all sorts of fluorescent colors depending on your kibble brand.  Kibble poop can last for weeks, even months due to the high levels of preservatives.
Consuming bones makes the stool hard.  Bone stools can be stepped on after a few days & will blow away in the wind.  Veggie stools are softer but they decompose quickly as well.  Since there are no fillers the amount of stool produced will be about 1/3 of what you see with a kibble fed pet since with a raw diet most of the nutrients are digested & absorbed.
Included
Laxatone (petroleum product) for hairballs
$10.00 per tube
