Why Feeding Your Cat a Species-Specific Raw Diet Is Purr-Fect for Feline Friends

Subscription based raw pet food delivery company Bella & Duke offers a range of nutritionally balanced treats and meals to help support your cat’s health.

As pet owners we constantly learn more and more about how to better fuel our own bodies to keep fit and healthy, so why should it be any different for our pets?

Our pets are important family members, but it’s important we don’t humanise them in a way that becomes detrimental to their health and ensure they are fed a species-specific diet.

According to the latest statistics from the Pet Food Manufacturers Association (PFMA), over 12.2m UK households now own a cat – that’s over a third of the entire country.

Leading pet wellness company Bella & Duke offers a range of meals and treats packed with natural nutrients that our feline friends need to keep fit and healthy.

Why feed your cat a species-specific raw diet?

By feeding your raw cat you keep in the natural vitamins, minerals and amino acids which are lost through the process of cooking. Highly processed pet food is cooked at very high temperatures, this results in a loss of vital nutrients which are instead replaced by artificial additives.

The lack of quality, nutritious and natural ingredients in processed cat foods heavily affects the lives of our feline friends. These missing nutrients are crucial to cat health and have been seen to help support the immune system, aid digestion, support gut health, and joints.

What are the benefits of a raw diet for my cat?

Owners who feed their cats a raw diet can see major improvements in their cat’s poo, it becomes more compact easier to manage and less smelly. Many report improvements in their cat’s coat, particularly how shiny and soft it becomes. Enthusiasm at mealtimes increases too.

As 61% of UK cats are deemed overweight and a whopping 80% of all cats over 10 years old have arthritis, it is clear that something in our cat’s lifestyles is negatively affecting their day-to-day life.

Other benefits of a raw diet include improved energy levels, a healthy coat, weight, supporting their digestion as well as keeping their healthy teeth.

New statistics from Bella & Duke’s Health and Happiness survey 2021 found, 58.7% of Bella & Duke customers saw an improvement in their cat’s weight since switching to raw and 24.9% said that a raw diet has helped maintain their pet’s joint health.

Mark Scott, CEO of Bella & Duke, said: “We are so constantly busy analysing our own diet and ways we improve our own health that sometimes we overlook what we are feeding our pets and how it affects them. At Bella & Duke we source the most fresh and best quality meats, to ensure each of our meals is packed with the correct nutrients that your pet needs to live a happier, healthier and longer life.”
