About Bone Appetit Raw Food

You must be wondering what this "NEW FAD" diet is for your dog, that everyone is talking about. Well, feeding your dog RAW is not new…kibble (dry dog food) is the new kid on the block. It has only been around since World War II. Prior to that, everyone fed their dogs table scraps, remnants from the garden and whatever else the family dog could scrounge up. During that time, cancer, thyroid, Cushing's disease, and arthritis were almost unheard of. During the past few years, with the demand of schedules and the desire for convenience in feeding the family pet, the popularity of kibble has grown. It doesn't matter that most today's health problems of our dogs and cats, stem from inappropriate nutrition.

Feeding
RAW has many wonderful benefits. It helps your pet's immune system become healthier, resulting in fewer health issues. Among those who feed their dogs’ good protein, some still feel it is important to cook any food, given to their dogs. And, even though this is healthier than feeding kibble, they are still cooking out the nutrients and enzymes that help your pet stay healthy.

Comments like; "My pet will get e-coli, other bacterial infections or even "chicken bone splinters"! Well, cooked chicken bones (any cooked bones) are very dangerous to your pet. The "chemical structure" of bones changes when you cook them, making them dangerous to swallow and digest. Raw bones are not only satisfying to your pet, but very nutritious. Chicken parts do carry e-coli and some bacteria's, but they actually have some benefits for your pets. Dogs and cats have a different digestive system than humans, which is why grains and diced up vegetables are not conducive to pet's digestive systems.

It is Bone Appetit’s goal to make your pet the healthiest it can be, through nutrition. Nutrition is one of the most important foundations for supporting good health. When your pet is provided good nutrition for its body, the body has a better chance of using its immune system and natural healing mechanisms. Even though there are other factors to consider, nutrition is one of the most important. We have seen greatly enhancing changes in behavior, chronic skin conditions, and energy, just by changing to raw food.
 

OUR MEATS

All of Bone Appetit’s chicken, turkey, pork, beef, duck, goat and lamb products are USDA inspected, human grade, hormone and antibiotic free. We use no stressed meat, 4D meat, meat byproducts, or crude proteins. Our motto: IF WE CAN'T EAT IT, WE WON'T FEED IT.

 

We utilize only chicken backs with rib cage as this the best meat to bone ratio, then we grind it to a course consistency.


We only use US hormone free Turkey necks.  Necks are a natural source of glucosamine, chondroitin and L-Tryptophan.  They are less fat and easy on the digestive system.  They are also great for getting that excess weight off. 

 

The lamb and beef is ground with an 80/20 meat to fat ratio.  The Pork is US pork loin ribs, and the duck is US premium duck, while our goat is USA or range free from Austrailia.  We don’t have rabbit, only because costs prohibit us from making an affordable produce and we will not use China rabbit. 

 

The offal (organ meats) that we use is also USDA human grade. We use beef heart and beef/pork kidney. These products are very important to your pet's diet. The heart offers a different kind of meat protein and the kidney is beneficial for digestion and help detoxify.

The fish that we use in our products are the four main bait fish; mackerel, herring, anchovies or sardines. These bait fish are caught right off the Oregon Coast and we get them right off the bait boats in Charleston Harbor.  These bait fish offer the proper nutrients, vitamins and omega 3 and omega 6 that are required for a healthy immune system.

We also add Organic alfalfa, Icelandic organic kelp and raw apple cider vinegar to aid your pet in their digestion, skin and coat.

It is important to feed your pets a variety of meats, because each meat offers a different source of meat proteins. Our most popular product is the Bone Appetit Meal Deal Combo Case. (See our product line)  We selected these items to guarantee that your dog will receive a variety of food, but also the variety of nutrients to keep his immune system healthy.  You can change the combo case to fit your dog, but we suggest the combo to guarantee that you include all the meat proteins.

Bone Appetit ships only on the West Coast. If you would like to know if we can ship to your area please contact us.  We ship our product in 1 lb. or 2 lb. tubes.

OUR VEGETABLES

Bone Appetit only uses the finest ORGANIC vegetables and fruits available. We purchase all our vegetables from the Organic Growers.  How we process these, is that they are only mixed with the natural juices of the vegetables and fruits that we use. 

 

With the nutrition goals met through our fruits and veggies, we do not have to add any supplements. The generally called "Green Foods", that Bone Appetit uses, include alfalfa, wheat grass, and dandelions. These are excellent sources of beta-carotene, minerals, amino acids, fiber and enzymes. They also contain beneficial antioxidants. Alfalfa is commonly recommended for arthritis and joint problems, because it has high in vitamin K content and is highly nutritious.

Bone Appetit does not use any underground veggies. These are high in carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are sugar, and sugar feeds yeast and cancer, they are said to be a large contributor to joint swelling and stiffness. 

 

We do use an underground herb, which is Burdock Root. Burdock Root is the traditional herb for the treatment of chronic skin problems. It is also considered a blood purifier and liver stimulator.

 

You will see no grains in any of Bone Appetit Meal Deal Products.  We have based our product on the digestive system of the wolf. You never see a wolf out in the wheat field eating the tops off the grains, but you do see them eat the vegetative stomach content of a fresh kill. This is in a pre-digestive state that is very nutritious. This is why we use a process that pulverizes the vegetables to a pre-digestive state, using the vegetable's own juices.  In order for your dog to get the valuable nutrients and vitamins from vegetables, they must be pulverized.  If you want to make your own veggies, put them through a food processor, blender or best will be a juicer.  Just chopping your vegetables are great fun treats for your dog, but they are getting no real nutrition because they are unable to break down the walls of the vegetable to redeem the most nutrition.
