Duck also contains generous amounts of iron, phosphorus, zinc, copper, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, Vitamin B6, and Vitamin B12. Both zinc and selenium are antioxidants that help to boost the immune system. Selenium also helps to maintain normal thyroid function. Another nutritional benefit to duck is its content of omega-3 fatty acids, which help to provide your pet with healthy skin and coat. Many pet owners with dogs that have food allergies prefer foods containing duck, due to the fact that duck is probably one of the best protein sources for dogs that suffer from allergies to other meats.

Rich in monounsaturated fats, olive oil reduces the risk and lessens the effects of cardiovascular disease and diabetes. The monounsaturated fats in olive oil also help break down the fat inside fat cells, reducing excess fat and lowering insulin sensitivity. Olive oil also contains oleic acid in addition to some compounds that are believed to be effective in preventing cancer. The high levels of antioxidants in olive oil make it very effective at boosting the immune system. Olive oil is known for its skin and coat benefits as it prevents free radical cell oxidation, which can lead to premature aging. In addition to slowing down the aging process on the outside, olive oil helps prevent the cognitive decline associated with aging, keeping your pet alert and energetic.

Flaxseed is an ancient food that has been recognized for its health benefits for thousands of years. Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are polyunsaturated fats (also known as “good fats”) and are what make flaxseeds so beneficial. The body can’t produce EFAs itself – they must be obtained through diet. They are required for normal growth and functioning of the cells, muscles, nerves, and organs. Deficiencies of EFAs have been linked to a variety of health problems, including heart disease, cancer and diabetes. Flaxseed also contains lignans – chemical compounds found in some plants. Research has shown a lowered risk of cancer associated with diets rich in lignans. Other studies suggest flaxseed lignans can lower cholesterol and help to prevent diabetes. As a high-fiber food, flaxseed is also great for intestinal health.

Transitioning To RAWZ
To transition, gradually mix in the new food over a 5-7 day period, increasing the amount of RAWZ® each day, so that you are feeding 100% RAWZ® by day 7.
Transition your dog gently! Please follow these general guidelines. When transitioning to a new food, it is important to pay attention to your pet’s stool. A healthy diet and good digestion should result in a stool that is formed but soft.
Moisture is vital to your pet’s health. If you feel your dog doesn’t drink much on their own throughout the day, please add moisture to your pet’s food; whether it comes from a canned food, broth or water. Water or broth should make up at least 20% of your pet’s meal. For best results, add water or broth and wait a few minutes before serving.
