Is Raw Food Better for Cats?

Atlanta, Georgia Raw Pet Food Company

Simply put, raw food diets mimic what your cat would be eating in the wild, and they have sharp teeth and claws for a reason. Cats are classified as obligate carnivores and depend entirely on meat for their nutrition. The canned or bagged food that many commercial brands are promoting might not even contain meat, and if they do, it’s very heavily processed.

With raw food, your cat gets what they’re supposed to be eating, without any fillers.

Physiology

Cats – and many other animals descended from wild creatures – not only have to eat meat to survive; they need raw, uncooked meat. Cooking, though required for human consumption of meats, degrades the nutrients in the food and makes bones brittle and prone to splintering.

The first thing people bring up when confronted with the option of a raw diet for their cat is their fear of food-borne pathogens. If this is a concern of yours, consider the quality of meat you’re buying for your cat. Corrina’s Corner produces only human-grade meats – fish, poultry, beef, duck, and more – that is continually tested by the Department of Agriculture.

You should also know that fresh, raw meat is quickly and easily digested by cats, and their highly acidic stomachs keep them from contracting an illness when consuming raw meat.

Overall Benefits

Raw diets provide your cat with the nutrition they need. Switching to this food source can improve your cat’s:

  • Digestion
  • Energy
  • Healthy body weight

Feeding your cat a raw diet can also reduce:

  • Urination
  • Stool odor
  • Hairballs

The additives and carbohydrates in your cat’s current kibble are hard to digest and could be irritating their digestive tract.
