What is air dried raw dog food & why is it any good?

Air dried raw food and treats provide dogs and cats with a more natural and nutritious diet. It’s one example where traditional food preparation and preservation methods are being rediscovered with surprising health benefits (and this time not just for humans but for dogs too).

Air drying maximises nutrition

There’s a huge range of healthy vitamins, minerals and enzymes in raw food from joint-boosting chondroitin sulphate in bones to a bounty of B vitamins in liver. Cooking and processing in some pet foods and treats destroys some of this nutritional value, particularly fragile nutrients like antioxidants and Omega 3 and 6 Essential Fatty Acids.

Air drying fresh ingredients on the other hand minimises processing and delivers maximum nutrition.

For better health

Our air dried raw food is built on the principles of Biologically Available Raw Food (BARF) – it mimics the diet dogs and cats have thrived on in the wild for millions of years.

Air drying locks in maximum nutrition which makes for happier, healthier dogs and cats. Stronger immune systems, healthier organs and bones and softer and shinier coats are just the beginning.

Easy to prepare

Air dried raw food makes life easier.

  • It’s small, so only takes a tiny space in the cupboard.
  • It’s light, so no more lugging it around the kitchen or car park.
  • It’s quick and easy to prepare with no mess.
  • It’s simple, containing everything a healthy puppy or adult dog needs.

Rehydrating air dried raw food improves digestibility

Dogs and cats in the wild are used to eating moist raw meat. The moisture helps maintain strong gut acidity which kills nasty pathogens, and promotes probiotic growth in the bowels which helps absorb nutrients and boost the immune system.

Adding water to our Balanced Life Rehydrate food turns it into a moist, meaty casserole which helps make a healthy gut and immune system.
