Raw or Cooked

Raw or Cooked

 Should you feed raw food to your cat or dog, or should you feed cooked meals? This topic causes heated debate among pet guardians, veterinarians, and the pet food industry. Pet Diet Designer lets you feed raw, cooked, or a combination of both.

Raw feeders claim a host of health benefits while those feeding cooked meals point to a lesser risk for food borne illnesses that can affect your pet and its' human family members.

Why is the pet food industry so against homemade pet food, whether raw or cooked? After all, dogs and cats have survived on a mix of raw and cooked food for thousands of years. The answer is simply money. The more people that make their own pet food, the less profit a pet food manufacturer will enjoy. But it's a little more complicated than that.

Recent analyses of pet recipes from books and online sources have identified nutrient shortcomings in the vast majority of these recipes. That's where Pet Diet Designer comes in. Whether you feed raw or cooked (or a mix of both), Pet Diet Designer will enable you to create meals that are more scientifically complete and balanced than anything the commercial pet food industry has to offer.

With our database of over 8000 foods it is easy to prepare raw or cooked meals (or both) for your cat or dog.
