This Raw dog food formula by Natural Instinct has become increasingly popular due to the many great reviews from those customers who have tried the product, this raw dog food formula is different to both the Pet range and working raw dog food due to the addition of several helpful ingredients.
Why is this Raw Dog food by Natural Instinct special?
This complete food starts with a base of 75% blended chicken, followed by the addition of fresh apples which are a great source of Vitamins A & C as well as being a great source of fibre whilst being low in protein and fat which is ideal for the more mature dog as their exercise levels start to reduce. Next goes in the Butternut Squash which like many other vegetables, is healthy for your dog. In particular, it’s rich in vitamin A, vitamin C, fibre, and potassium. These vitamins and minerals support the health of your dog’s vision, immune system, colon, muscles, and digestion.
Then they add spinach which contains large amounts of vitamins A, B, C, and K. It also contains iron, antioxidants, beta-carotene, and roughage, which stimulate the digestive tract. Sea Kelp is added contains 60 different minerals and vitamins and 21 amino acids, making it a great ingredient to have in dog food. Natural fresh Salmon oil is also added which is rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids that support a healthy immune system, heart health, anti-inflammatory properties, healthy skin and coat and cognitive function.
In particular the Natural Instinct senior formula has the carefully thought out addition of Chondroitin sulphate and Glucosamine Hydrochloride and Vitamin C, now whilst at first glance to the novice raw feeder these additions may not appear natural in name at least they are totally natural and a superb supplement for the older dog.
Chondroitin sulphate is sourced from natural raw products and is often used in dietary supplements for dogs due to its effective treatment of osteoarthiritus which can be associated with the older dog, not only does it help your older dog with their mobility but it has also shown to be a promising new treatment for coronary artery disease, even if your older dog is in good health this is a natural supplement and will not cause any harm.
Glucosamine Hydrochloride –
Glucosamine is a natural sugar that exists in the fluid around the joints, as well as in animal bones, bone marrow, shellfish, and fungi, Glucosamine found in Natural Instinct’s senior formula comes from the shells of shellfish, the older dog’s body uses glucosamine to build and repair cartilage. Cartilage is a flexible, tough, rubbery connective tissue that protects the dog’s bones in the joints. It provides padding and prevents the dog’s bones from rubbing together which is very painful. As a dog ages, their cartilage can become less flexible and can start to break down, which can lead to pain, inflammation, and tissue damage, which, for example, occurs in osteoarthritis. There is some evidence that glucosamine might slow this process and benefit cartilage health.
