Why Pet Stores Should Carry Raw Prey Diet & Raw Pet Treats

Increased Popularity of Raw Pet Food & Treats

In recent years, many dog owners have abandoned the conventional commercial diets for their dogs and the popularity of a raw fed dog diet has skyrocketed. As you can see below, online searches for things like "raw dog food" and similar topics has drastically increased over the past five years.

Why Pet Owners Are Feeding More Raw Treats & Food

Wondering why more pet owners are interested in raw food and treats than ever before? There are several reasons.

  • Many owners feel that raw meat is what dogs were naturally meant to eat. 
  • Knowing the source of their pet's food is a priority.
  • There can be several health benefits to feeding raw prey diet or raw treats.

Increasingly, pet owners are making the source of their pet's food a priority. The source of the ingredients in major pet food brands is unknown to the consumer. Most raw pet food and supplement providers openly provide the source and history of their meat.

With Pure Pheasant, pet owners can rest assured knowing that all of the pheasants used for our raw prey diet and treats are raised and processed in Wisconsin. Our pheasants are free-roaming, humanely handled, and vegetarian diet fed.

Health Benefits of Raw Diets & Treats

Raw meat and animal parts are high in omega-3, calcium, collagen, chondroitin, marrow, glucosamine, and phosphorus. Research has shown that there are many benefits to incorporating raw meat into pets' diets. Whether pets are on a fully raw diet or fed raw meat or animal parts as a supplement, benefits can include: 
  • Shinier coat
  • Healthier skin
  • Cleaner teeth and fresher breath
  • Higher energy
  • Leaner, more muscular build
  • Immunity boost and less allergies
  • Better joint health

Pure Pheasant’s Raw Prey Diet & Treats

Pure Pheasant’s Raw Pheasant Prey Diet is made with real pheasant. This prey diet is made up of 80% meat, 10% bone, and 10% organ to mimic the makeup of a live pheasant. Our products are all free of artificial preservatives, fillers, colors, shot-free, and minimally processed.

Pheasant is low in fat and high in several minerals such as manganese and phosphorus that support strong bone growth and healing. Pheasant is lower in total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol than chicken, turkey, or beef. Our pheasants are fed a 100% vegetarian diet made from Non-GMO corn with no added hormones or antibiotics.

Incorporating raw treats into pets' diets can have the same health benefits of a fully raw diet or supplement. Offering raw freeze-dried or raw frozen pet treats can be a great add-on to your store's offering and a good way to dip your store's toes in and test the waters of selling raw.
