It reveals the fascinating story about one of North America’s rarest remaining purebred indigenous dogs and Brian’s ongoing mission to preserve them.

Vet says dogs likely to eat garbage rather than face a life of kibble!

Now this is worth the read! With wit and sarcasm, historical insight and recent research, Dr. Knueven, a well-credentialed holistic vet and author, questions the wisdom of a kibble-based diet – and recommends a raw diet for our pets.

On his web page Why Feed Raw?, Dr. Doug says “…conventionally, we are going at pet nutrition from a totally wrong direction. We start with ingredients that carnivores were never meant to eat, then we strip out all the nutrients with our processing, and finally we sprinkle in some synthetic vitamins and supplements to try to balance obvious deficiencies. A more intelligent approach would be to start with a look at what canines have evolved eating over the past five million years.”

In Mother Knows Best, Dr. Doug questions “Who knows what current canine problems may be due to missing building blocks: nutrients absent from today’s diets which are assumed to be complete and balanced? The experts in the pet food industry didn’t have complete understanding of nutrition in 1997, nor in 2005, and they still don’t today.”

So what’s the bottom line. The ideal diet is “raw meat, bones, organ meat, and shredded fruits and vegetables.” Sounds like a Perfectly Raw combination to me! Love to hear your thoughts on this.

Valued Customers – News

Dear Valued Customers,

We regret to announce that product prices will be increasing effective October 15, 2012 due to circumstances beyond our control.

We have been informed by our poultry supplier that the price we pay for chicken will increase shortly by 300 – 400%. This increase is due in part to the US drought, which has both raised the cost of feed for livestock including chickens, and reduced overall supply.

Market competition among pet food manufacturers has also increased, with larger manufacturers driving up prices to secure supply – prices that smaller companies like our own must now pay to retain the ingredients we need to continue to produce and sell quality products to our customers.

In addition, there was a 60 – 70% increase in the cost of both fish and liver supplies earlier this year, which until this latest increase we had absorbed.

Despite these factors, we will continue to strive to provide the most affordable raw pet foods on the market, using the highest quality ingredients available in Canada.

Thank you for your understanding, and your continued customer loyalty.

Does Perfectly Raw Cure Chicken Allergies?

It has long been assumed that dogs on kibble are not really “allergic” to chicken, but instead are just re-acting to all the chemicals and preservatives in kibble products. Who’s to say for sure,  but here is what Callie has to say:

“Hi Kerry, I just wanted to let you know how impressed I am with your products.  My brother’s Wiemeraner could not eat chicken in any form without breaking out into hives – even the products that claimed to be hormone and antibiotic free.  I gave him a package of backs to try for my own curiosity. He is on his second meal of backs (4 in total) with absolutely no reaction whatsoever!  For me that proves the quality of the chicken. Thank you, Callie, AtomicDog”

Perfectly Raw Chicken products use the freshest ingredients from Granny’s, and contain NONE of the chemicals, preservatives, grains and other fillers found in kibble.

Perfectly Raw supports Weimaraners!

Perfectly Raw is pleased to sponsor the Weimaraner Association of Canada Regional Specialty Show in Portage over the Canada Day long weekend.

“We are very happy to support the WAC and the Weimarners competing in this year’s show” said Kerry Baldwin, Owner. “It’s an incredible feeling to be able to play a role in their ongoing health and development. A special hello and good luck to our customers – Pat Kopek (Calgary), Jill Klassen (Winnipeg), Kim Parish (Portage, Organizer) and their dogs – and to all contestants.”
