How a RAW Diet Helps Shorten Digestion Time

Who likes snuggling with their fur baby?  How about when you both just got all comfy and cozy; they hit you with some stinky smells? Not me! Something that not many people understand is that diet and shortening the time of digestion has such an important impact on the result of nutrient absorption as well as lessening stinking flatulence. Being around a dog that is constantly passing noxious gas is no fun and is the ultimate result of diet and improper digestion.

Digestion of Nutrients

A raw diet is significantly better than a cooked diet.  Cooked ingredients tend to get stuck in the digestive tract longer which allows for more toxins to be released. This is a result of improper digestion of inferior ingredients. These ingredients are hard to break down and then gas forms in the digestive system. Grain-based diets take 12 to 15 hours to digest and absorb compared to the shorter 8 hour time frame for meat based raw diets. Raw based diets offer a significant advantage to eliminate gas build-up in the gut.

Bloating and Gas

Additionally the frequency of bloating is seldom a problem with raw fed dogs and is more important when it comes to feeding large breed dogs. The volume of food necessary to properly provide the right amount of nutrition to these large breeds can lead to:

  • Toxin development in the digestive tract
  • Bloating
  • Ongoing GI problems

When starting your pup on our BARF Diet®, one of the first changes you will notice is a reduction in gas, stomach upset and diarrhea, as well as smaller, firmer stool. When those chronic gas and poop problems suddenly disappear or improve dramatically, you will no longer have to deal with smelly gas and stools or miss out on those snuggles with your pooch! Our natural, healthy, raw diet will supply your pet with all the nutrients that kibble diets are missing and none of the fillers that cause these stinky issues! BARF World® diets provide the very best for your beloved pet.
