Hi. My name is Courtney and I work for Moe’s Meats. Satchel has handed over today’s blog so I can talk about my decision to feed raw meat.
I’ve raised dogs all my life feeding them kibble twice a day. I never thought anything of it until my own diet began to change. I started looking at the food I was eating and began incorporating organic, whole and raw foods into every meal.
When Dave and I were waiting for our new puppy to arrive we started researching diet. We couldn’t get over the thought of feeding Satchel something that is so overly processed, dry and the furthest thing from natural.
As I researched the subject I found lots of info supporting both sides. I talked to Satchel’s breeders (http://www.aegisridgebacks.com/home) who strongly encouraged the raw diet, especially since Satchel was being weened on raw meat.
Being a vegetarian, I was a little put off at the thought of handling raw meat and had no idea what to expect, but when I sat with myself I knew what to do. There was no way I was going to be able to feed my little puppy something I would never want fed to me. I just couldn’t live with myself now that I had this expanded understanding around the raw meat diet option.
