Why Raw?

Why Raw?

Remember the saying “You are What You Eat?” Humans are wise to eat a well-rounded diet including fruits, vegetables, proteins, etc. which supply necessary enzymes, vitamins, minerals that our bodies need. Whole, natural unprocessed foods that do not contain harmful additives and unnecessary preservatives are the best choices.

Canine diets include similar principals. By reducing or eliminating additives and preservatives that are found in many dog food products and replacing them with healthy Raw Foods, it can maximize the health and longevity of your dog.

Benefits of a Raw Foods diet include:

  • Improved teeth, gums, oral health & breath
  • Improved immune system & promotion of overall health and wellness
  • Natural hydration
  • Less fat; promotion of leaner body mass & weight management
  • Helps resolve allergy issues
  • Healthy skin & coat
  • Reduction in stool volume & odor
  • Supplies a consistent growth pattern in puppies
  • Reduction in digestive problems
  • Creates a calmer demeanor
  • Improved endurance

The products we offer contain bones, meat, organs, blanched vegetables and nothing more.

100% Natural Ingredients.  What you see is what you get.

NO preservatives, additives, by-products, grains, corn, soy, sugar or ingredients you can’t pronounce.

Now you have the opportunity to improve the life, look, feel and health of your treasured pal.

The team at Deer Valley Danes want you to be confident about your decision to feed raw and we are committed to working with you through the transition.  We will personally customize a menu for your dog(s) while considering all aspects of feeding raw.  Please let us know about feeding budgets, time constraints, medication, allergies, and any special nutritional needs that your dog may require.  We will help find what is right for you and your furry friend.
