Locally Sourced and Produced Raw Diet for Dogs

Posted on 01 May 2017 by Douglas Merrow

We all know that eating wholesome food is healthy for humans—but what about other animals?
To answer this question, renowned food blogger Rodney Habib visited Finnish scientists who were conducting a study on more than 8,000 dogs to determine the effects of a raw diet. The scientists discovered that both methionine and homocysteine (acids found in dog kibble) are linked to cancer in dogs. During the study, they found that when a dog was kibble-fed but switched to an all-raw diet, the levels of both dangerous acids were lowered. Additionally, the researchers saw health improvements when as little as 20 percent of a raw fresh diet was added to a regular diet.
Nutritional specialist Dr. Cheryl Morris formulated the unique balanced Meat & Bones raw blend that any dog will love eating and dog owners will love feeding, with confidence. Meat & Bones suggests trying their four-pound package first, if in doubt. Meat & Bones never uses synthetics in their food and they share all ingredients with consumers. Everything is locally sourced and produced in Portland.
