What is raw feeding?
Raw feeding involves, as the name suggests, feeding your dog on a raw food-based diet of its ancestors as wild carnivores. It consists of fresh meat, innards, vegetables and vitamin and mineral supplements, designed to imitate as much as possible the natural prey of dogs in the wild. However, for most dog owners this can be time consuming and comes with risks that owners need to consider, including appropriate storage of raw meat and ensuring their dog’s diet is fully balanced.
What is wet BARF?
Foods, such as our Fleischeslust recipes, which follow BARF (Biologically Appropriate Raw Feeding) principles but in a shelf stable, wet food format. These foods are suitable for all owners who value balanced, healthy ingredients and gentle production when considering what to feed their pet. Feeding dogs wet BARF is species-appropriate, natural and digestible.
Why choose Fleischeslust?
Fleischeslust recipes are a perfect alternative to raw feeding and all materials used in the recipes are 100% natural and high quality from small, local suppliers. The ingredients are fresh and processed from human food production. Fleischeslust’s focus is on producing food slowly and carefully at low temperature and low pressure, to ensure valuable vitamins and nutrients are retained in the process. Fleischeslust is opposed to the pre-treatment of animal products and ensures that no synthetic preservatives are added.
The gentle cooking process ensures that all important nutrients are retained and comes with the added hygiene benefit to both humans and dogs as it ensures germs are killed that always pose a risk with raw BARF. This cooking process makes meat and innards more digestible and tastier. Dogs with sensitive digestion, and those with food intolerances, can benefit from pure meat and single protein recipes. Some dogs dislike raw BARF, so the cooked version can be more appealing to those that are fussier when it comes to their food bowl.
What ranges do Fleischeslust offer?
Fleischeslust Classic, Sensitive, and Hypoallergenic sausages offer a balanced and complete diet with 80% meat or fish and innards, alongside 20% plant-based ingredients such as fruit and vegetables. Apples, carrots, zucchini, or sweet potatoes feature in the recipes.
Alternatively, for owners who like to customise their dog’s diet, Fleischeslust’s complementary Steakhouse range includes recipes of pure meat and innards that are gently cooked and ensure a natural taste with the best nutrients. These also make a great alternative for exclusion diets by offering single-source protein recipes, Pure Poultry, Pure Game, Pure Duck, Pure Buffalo, and Pure Goat.
