Why RAW?

Rawsome Paw Co. firmly believes in the vital role nutrition plays in promoting overall well-being. Central to our philosophy is a profound understanding of the advantages that a raw diet can offer cats and dogs. Here are some compelling reasons why an increasing number of pet owners are embracing the transition to raw and minimally processed food options:

Pets, like humans, thrive on minimally processed diets. However, most commercial pet foods undergo extensive processing, resulting in diminished nutrients and the addition of artificial supplements and chemicals. Over the past century, ingredients such as corn, wheat, soy, and rice have become prevalent in pet diets, despite their digestive systems not being biologically designed to handle excessive plant material. One of the risks associated with processed pet food is the high temperatures used during production, which can lead to nutrient loss, the emission of carcinogenic compounds, and the production of free radicals.

Cooking muscle meat at high temperatures creates chemicals called heterocyclic amines (HCAs) and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), while heavily processed starchy foods produce acrylamides. These chemicals are mutagenic and can potentially increase the risk of cancer in both humans and animals. Moreover, the high-temperature processing diminishes the natural antioxidant content of the food, leading to oxidative stress and an imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants, further increasing the risk of cancer.

Dry pet food, often containing over 50% carbohydrates, contributes to the glucose levels in the body. Glucose has been linked to cancer cell growth, as cancer cells utilize sugar as a fuel source through a process called anaerobic glycolysis. This highlights the potential connection between highly processed pet foods and cancer development.

Although further research is needed to fully understand the extent of the link between processed pet foods and cancer, the combination of high carbohydrates, free radicals, and low antioxidants can lead to metabolic stress, chronic inflammation, and a higher-risk environment for cancer to develop. 

At Rawsome Paw Co., we understand the importance of nutrition in ensuring your pet’s optimal health and well-being. While we advocate for a raw pet food diet as the optimal choice, we also recognize that the cost of many raw food products can be prohibitive for the average pet owner.
