Raw Food Diet For Dogs: Supercharge Your Dog's Nutrition

It is important to remember that having the right foundation food is always the first place to start. Dr. Harvey’s formulas include a wide array of whole food ingredients designed to cover all of your dog's essential nutrient needs when mixed with protein and oil.

That being said, a healthy diet is one that has variety. The idea of just one food given daily as it is being complete and balanced is a myth. Therefore, we suggest that in addition to rotating proteins and oils, pet parents also add healthy extras to their dog's diet.

Here are some healthy extras that we encourage pet parent’s to add into a raw diet for dogs:

  • organ meats
  • oysters (with shell removed)
  • canned mackerel (in water with no salt added)
  • canned sardines (in water with no salt added)
  • bone broth
  • kefir
  • yogurt
  • cottage cheese
  • raw goat’s milk
  • fresh fruits,
  • fresh vegetables, etc.

By rotating protein sources (beef, chicken, fish, etc.) and oils, and regularly adding in organ meat, you can help to ensure that your dog is getting a wide array of naturally occurring proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. This is what we call "balance over time."

With our variety of base mixes, Dr. Harvey’s provides exceptional foods to build the best diet plan for your dog. Canine Health, Veg-to-Bowl, Paradigm and Raw Vibrance are all excellent choices when you are looking to build your dog's optimal diet.

You can achieve “balance over time” by rotating Dr. Harvey’s foods, rotating proteins and oils and by adding healthy extras! You can create the healthiest and most nutritious meals for your pup and provide all that they need to regain or maintain their health, increase longevity and live a life of vitality and optimal wellness.
