Dog food to help overweight pets

natural_instinct_logoSMLWhen your pet puts on weight, it’s a tough task to tackle but there are plenty of solutions, including a raw food diet. One of the benefits of feeding your pet with a raw food diet is that it contains no grains and the carbohydrates are in the form of vegetables, a great way to provide fibre in the diet. By doing this, you’ll be avoiding easily stored carbohydrates such as rice, maize and potato, essential in avoiding weight gain. Lower fat varieties such as turkey and tripe are recommended in the diet for heavier pets.

Why should you choose a raw diet for your pet’s health?

  1. The finest ingredients. Natural Instinct don’t use anything artificial in the food they make.
  2. Delicious meals for your pet. Natural Instinct pass the waggy tails test with flying colours – with many tastes and textures in the range, picky puppies or fussy felines are bound to find something that they’ll enjoy.
  3. It’s a healthy, balanced diet. Our furry friends need the perfect diet – just like us humans – that will maintain strong bones, muscles and digestion. And giving them this will give you a much happier, healthier dog or cat.
  4. It’s convenient – Natural Instinct’s food is packaged in easy-to-store tubs in various sizes – so you can simply defrost and serve. Easy!
  5. It’s safe – Natural Instinct’s raw foods comply with DEFRA and the APHA requirements and the brand carries out regular inspections and testing.
