Raw homemade pet food provides absolutely perfect nutrition for your dogs and cats, according to a mountain of research.
If you're feeding dry dog or cat kibble, this pet food might be the source of health problems.
If you're breeding and raising many rabbits - you can offer your dogs or cats an ideal, species-specific raw pet food diet including raw rabbit meat, organs and bones.
But you don't need to raise rabbits yourself, if you can obtain frozen raw rabbits for feeding your dogs or cats. Plus, you'll find on our research pages (below) a
couple websites that will show you how to make your own raw homemade pet
This means that in order to stay healthy, they must eat, and will positively thrive on a diet composed of fresh raw animal meat, organs and bones.
Dogs are technically omnivores, yet "have a natural and undeniable carnivorous bias," in the words of DogFoodAdvisor.com.
They are capable of eating and digesting some plant-based foods. Nevertheless they suffer no nutritional deficits if eating a solely animal-based (carnivorous) diet.
The rabbits you are raising are an
excellent prey animal. It should be no surprise that rabbits dwell at the
bottom of the food chain. Perhaps not so
amazing, a rabbit carcass is proportioned just right for both your dogs and
If you raise your own rabbits, you can include even more of
the carcass for meeting your pets' nutritional needs. You can also supplement
with additional nutrients, such as taurine for cats, if you think your animals
need it. (Rabbit shouldn't be a sole menu item; rotate it with other meats such as chicken, beef, etc.)
One big drawback ...
I recognize that this is a gruesome discussion.
The idea of killing creatures, especially cute ones, or even handling and offering raw meat to your pets, is quite horrifying to many, especially vegetarians.
If you're a vegetarian and the idea of handling raw meat offends you or "grosses you out," you're not the only one. Please see the www.catnutrition.org FAQ Page for answers.
I wish there was another way to feed a carnivore. Unfortunately, wolves chase, kill and eat animals. It's how their bodies are equipped for staying healthy.
Dogs? They are a sub-species of the wolf (Canis lupus) - Canis lupus familiaris. To this day, dogs and wolves have nearly identical nutritional needs.
It is no different for cats (read lions, tigers, cheetahs, et al).
Your cats, and dogs, crave fresh raw meat, and will reward you with vibrant health when they get it, because their nutritional needs are being completely met.
If your dog or cat has any of the following conditions...
If you're making lots of trips to the vet...

It does cost a little bit more in terms of dollars to feed
our pets with fresh raw homemade pet food. The cost to feed fresh raw rabbit is
more reasonable for those who are already raising rabbits for home consumption,
survival preparedness, or show.
But no matter how you crunch the numbers, the value to our beloved pets is...
