raw diet vs extruded diet

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • A new study shows that when it comes to amino acid digestibility and true metabolizable energy, fresh, frozen raw, and freeze-dried raw dog foods outperform extruded formulas
  • Earlier research showed that dogs fed fresh food show positive microbiome changes and improved overall gut function
  • Another study showed dogs eating lightly cooked and raw food had reduced blood triglyceride levels as well, even though those diets were higher in fat than extruded dog food (kibble)
  • A nutritionally optimal, species-specific, fresh raw or gently cooked diet is always a better choice for pets than extruded diets
