Pros and Cons of Raw Dog Food Vlog

Rigby’s hanging out on the blog today… well, technically he’s vlogging with me! (And hating it, by the way. He’s kind of a diva.) We’re sharing our experiences with feeding raw dog food, and why we chose to make the switch away from kibble. Plus, our friends at I and love and you sent us some of their dehydrated raw food to try (and they’ve definitely won Rigby over with some of their recipes!)

I and love and you Raw Dog Food Review Vlog / hellorigby!

Watch our video below, and be sure to grab a coupon for $3 off of any I and love and you product! If raw food still freaks you out (and no worries if it does, it took me awhile to warm up to the idea too!) the coupon will work on ANY of their recipes, including kibble and cat food!

Oh, and don’t forget to come back next week to enter yourself (but mostly your pet) to win a big prize basket full of I and love and you products worth over $100!

Thanks to I and love and you for providing products to sample for today’s post. All opinions are Rigby’s, as best as I can read his little doggie mind. ;)

Do you have pets? Have you ever considered feeding your pet raw food? I’d love to hear your thoughts!

    Okay, this was suuuuper helpful. I’ve been considering the raw food diet for Chewie for ages now. She has food allergies, specifically chicken. And I keep hearing the raw food diet is a good option for dogs that have sensitive digestive systems.

    I’ve always been scared off at the thought of having to prep raw food for her. I had no idea you could buy this stuff pre-made and simply add water. Brilliant. Will definitely be checking it out further.

    Thanks

      Yes, premade is great! It’s so easy to avoid chicken too, the lamb recipe from I and love and you would be a great one to check out – not sure if she is sensitive to turkey too, but duck is another good one for pups with allergies! :)

    We switched our dachshund to a homemade food a few years ago. It’s not a raw diet, just cooked chicken, rice, and veg and she absolutely loves it! The store-bought food we have available to us made her so sick, we had no choice.

      We considered home cooking as well, but I thought it would be hard to maintain while traveling or if we were taking Rigby somewhere. The convenience of the premade dehydrated is great. So glad you found something to make her feel better! Seeing your pup sick is the worst!

      I love dehydrated for the convenience factor especially, but yes raw is great! We also like Darwin’s, which is local and comes in frozen packs all ready to go!

    I’ve been really interested in learning more and considering raw food for my dog, but it’s kinda scary. I imagine plopping a chunk of ground beef into his bowl, haha. I just need to make the time to educate myself more on this for sure, so thanks for the first step!

      Haha! It is scary, and it is a little more complicated than just using ground beef (because they also need the calcium and minerals in bone to balance things out) which is why we have stuck to premade. We do half dehydrated raw (I and love and you Chicken, Turkey or Lamb recipes) and the other half is “fresh frozen” from Darwin’s… which is a bit like plopping ground meat in the bowl, but it also contains organic veggies and vitamins to supplement which is nice. If you have any questions feel free to let me know – I’m more than happy to blab away about us feeding raw and provide you with resources!

      He was not amused, but to be fair, this was like… take #4 and 5! Bummer it didn’t help with the gas, but Bostons are more prone to that because of their short nasal passages, right?

    Warner is on a very special food because of his sickness, but I think this raw food diet is pretty interesting. I think if he wasn’t so sick we would give it a try! Also? Your necklace in that video is everything.

      I think raw food diets are great for pups allergies, but I definitely would not mess with any dog who may be immune compromised since it is raw food! Thanks girl – it’s recent and from Forever 21! (this one)

      Aw, thanks Cat! High quality dog food is definitely pricey! I think Rigby probably is eating a healthier diet than we are as well. Oops! :)

    We don’t do raw food with Albie but we have done grain free his whole life. We use Taste of the Wild. I have heard good things about doing raw food. We might need to check it out. Also, that Rigby is just too cute!
