Dog poo chart aka the POO-OMETER)
Is your doggie's do-do healthy?
We know for ourselves that what we eat affects our health and toilet habits, but many don’t make the link between diet and doggy doo-doo. Every year, British dogs unnecessarily excrete 1.3 MILLION TONNES of poo. That's a poo mountain almost the size of Uluru! This is likely a result of many eating highly processed kibble.
To help the nation’s dog owners determine whether a dog’s digestive system is healthy, we've released a new downloadable dog poo chart (a.k.a.the Poo-ometer) showing what to look for when a dog does it’s business, and simple changes you can make to improve it.
So, why raw dog food? Dogs are carnivores with short digestive tracts and need a high meat content diet to thrive. Many highly processed pet foods contain as little as 4% meat and are bulked with grains and fillers that you and I can digest, but dogs can’t. When a dog is absorbing all the goodness they need from natural high protein food, their poo becomes smaller, firmer and odourless.
