In this episode… The Raw Food Diet has gained popularity in recent years, and it has shown to be a great help for animals with allergy and health problems, but many owners of otherwise healthy pets have begun to make the switch.
Carla B is an expert. She and her company have developed a raw diet system and network which has the science down of what, when, and how much to feed your pet when switching to a raw diet. All of their meats are grass-fed and are hormone and antibiotic-free, and she has done immense research to find out exactly what animals need to get a balanced, nutritious diet.
This week Carla sits down with Tim to discuss the benefits of a raw diet, the costs of switching from traditional dog food, some inspiring stories from owners, and so much more.
