Road and sidewalk salt can cause serious damage to your canine pals paw pads. Here are a few things that can help:

Benefits of feeding raw to your pets:
Benefits of a raw diet are visible in how your pet looks and feels, from the shiny, silky coat to more energy!
How much does it cost?
The raw food we carry at Fun 4 All Pet Resort is about the same price as feeding a good quality kibble. You are paying for REAL food and in the long term you will reap the benefits of a healthier pet. Tooth cleaning and scaling will not be as necessary, painful "hot spots" occur with less frequency (if at all) and ear problems will be reduced. Your pet will be strong, happier and healthier.
Where do I start?
First you need to understand why you have decided to feed a "RAW" diet. Research the internet, read a book, or talk to our nutritional specialists at Fun 4 All. We also recommend watching "Pet Fooled" on Netflix.
Decide whether you are going to buy a commercial (frozen) raw food, make your own, or both. If making your own, be sure you research the nutritional aspects first. If feeding a commercial product, choose a good quality food. Plan on how you will make the switch to RAW and follow through - you can either go "cold turkey" or switch gradually - this is a matter of choice. Many dogs have made the switch by going cold turkey, but some may have a problem with this. Use common sense when feeding recreational bones. Handle both food and feeding dishes and the cleaning up as you would for any raw meat.
Is it difficult to feed raw while traveling?
Feeding raw while traveling can be very easy with a little thought and planning. Take along some food when you leave home. When this is used up, go to the grocery store and purchase ground meat to feed, along with eggs and ripe vegetables and fruits. Most dogs enjoy fresh product - just remember to stay away from grapes and raisins and to limit "stronger" vegetables like the cabbage family. Onions are also a no-no.
