Bites of Nature: Unveiling the Prey Model Raw Revolution

Bites of Nature: Unveiling the Prey Model Raw Revolution

As responsible pet parents, we're always on the hunt for the best ways to keep our furbabies healthy and thriving. In the world of pet nutrition, one term that's been gaining traction is "Prey Model Raw" (PMR). When I first heard this term I was scared! Feeding my dogs raw was a transition because it's not something we, as humans, consume. I don't even eat meat myself! 

The thoughts of giving my dogs raw meat and it being so beneficial to them was foreign to me but I am a lifelong learner and try to embrace change. Growing up in the 90's most dogs I encountered, even my family ones, were "outside" dogs and gravy train was the kibble of choice. Luckily, the pet food industry has begun to change to be more aligned with dog's ancestral roots.

Did you know the lifespan of dogs has drastically decreased since the introduction of modern kibble? Some dogs, such as the retriever, used to live to be 16-18 years old, now the average lifespan is 10-12 years. That's because kibble is full of excess complex carbohydrates, starches, and fillers that your pup just does not need and is harder on their digestive system, which makes up 70-90% of their immune system.

So what exactly is PMR, and why should you consider it for your dog? Buckle up, because we're about to dive deep into this game-changing approach to canine nutrition and introduce you to our revolutionary Bites Line, which is all about embracing the PMR philosophy.

From the Wild to Your Home

Imagine a world where your dog's diet is perfectly aligned with its ancestry found in wolves, rooted in hunting and foraging small prey. Well, that's the essence of Prey Model Raw. PMR is a feeding approach that mimics the diet of wild canines, which primarily consists of prey animals. Picture wolves, foxes, and other wild canids thriving on a menu of whole animals – meat, organs, bones, and the stomach contents of its prey. PMR recreates this natural diet in your pup's bowl. The recommended guidelines are 70-80% muscle meat, 10% organs, and 10% raw meaty bones. 

The Benefits That Make Tails Wag

  1. Nutritional Nirvana: PMR provides your dog with a well-rounded, nutrient-dense diet. Dogs are biologically designed to extract maximum nutrition from whole prey. This means they get essential vitamins, minerals, and amino acids in their most natural and bioavailable form.

  2. Strong Teeth and Bones: Chewing on meaty bones in a PMR diet promotes dental health, naturally keeping those pearly whites gleaming. Plus, the calcium-rich bones ensure strong bones and joints, so your furry friend can keep up with you on adventures.

  3. Digestive Delight: PMR can work wonders for dogs with sensitive stomachs or food allergies. The simplicity of whole prey ingredients can make digestion smoother, leading to happier tummies and fewer issues. Dog's stomachs are made to digest prey quickly, typically within 6-8 hours. Whereas humans can take up to 72 hours to ferment and process food including complex carbs through their digestive system.

  4. Skin & Coat & Energy: Expect to see a shinier coat and healthier skin and more energy. The balanced fat content in a PMR diet can do wonders for your pup's exterior, making them the envy of the dog park. While the digestive tract is working more efficiently without working harder to digest protein that dogs thrive on.
