In the world of dog nutrition, there’s a revolution happening, and it’s helping dogs live healthier happier lives everywhere. Dr. Billinghurst has dedicated his life to spreading the word about the transformative impact of raw diets for dogs. In a candid and insightful conversation, DeDe, pet nutritionist Nealy Piazza and Dr. Billinghurst discuss the importance of raw feeding and how it’s simpler than you might think.
The conversation begins with a powerful assertion: Raw feeding makes a significant difference in dogs’ lives. Those who have embraced this paradigm can testify to its remarkable effects. Dr. Billinghurst and Nealy acknowledge the challenges they face in promoting raw diets, especially within the veterinary community. Despite the uphill battle, they remain passionate advocates for this natural approach to dog nutrition.
The heart of their message is clear: raw feeding is not as complicated as some would have you believe. Dr. Billinghurst challenges the idea that you need to worry about soil quality and synthetic nutrients for your dog’s food. After all, you don’t analyze your own dinner in such detail, so why should it be any different for your pet?

The key to raw feeding is understanding what animals have NOT evolved to eat. That’s dry synthetic filled canned or bagged diets. What they have always needed is a raw diet. Raw feeding is about providing a biologically complete and balanced diet, not just one that legally meets standards. That’s what AAFCO is all about. By feeding real, unprocessed food, you give your pet the nutrients it must have and requires.
Dr. Billinghurst and Nealy acknowledge the resistance they face, especially from traditional veterinarians and pet food companies. However, they stress the importance of standing up for your beliefs when it comes to your pet’s health. Raw feeding, when done right, can lead to healthier, happier dogs, even in the face of skepticism.
