The Power of Raw Food
As many of you are aware, Ruff Diamonds is a strong advocate for raw feeding and when it comes to quality we want only the best for our dogs.
This is why we are now stocking Organic Paws range of raw food products. All their products are certified organic through the Australian Certified Organic (ACO). This means that at every stage their ingredients were raised, grown, slaughtered, harvested, packaged and transported, they were thoroughly monitored and assessed by the ACO to ensure they were done so without the use of chemicals, synthetic hormones, antibiotics, toxic fertilizers, pesticides, bioengineering (GMOs) or irradiated.
And that's about as good as you can get, we reckon.
But don't take our word for it - check out the video of Cairo chomping down on it. He is thoroughly enjoying it. We thought we'd get him to taste test Organic Paws' newest product - Powerhouse Lamb & Chicken W’ Turmeric & Coconut Oil. And it went down a treat.
Powerhouse Lamb & Chicken W’ Turmeric & Coconut Oil is nutrient dense and contains natural and powerful therapeutic properties.
According to their website: "When combined, turmeric and coconut oil contain amazing anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, wound healing and anti-cancer activities. These two ingredients alone are known to strengthen the immune system, aid with nutrient absorption, relieve chronic skin conditions, improve brain function and help relieve arthritic joint pain and stiffness". In other words, it's perfect for those too lazy to make their own Golden Paste!
But seriously, we're all time poor and if you know you can buy a product that has all the necessaries already in it, doesn't it may life a lot easier?
Following is a more detailed breakdown of this product:
Lamb Meat - Full carcass lamb meat including all prime cuts eg. loin, rib and legs. High in protein, iron, zinc, selenium, vitamin B12, niacin and phosphorus.

We might add that when it comes to feeding offal, neither of my dogs are keen on kidney and I have never managed to hide it successfully in their food without them realising. However, with Powerhouse Lamb & Chicken W’ Turmeric & Coconut Oil, I have had no issue at all with them eating it ... in fact, they "wolf" it down!!
So, the moral of the story is that if you feed raw but are too time poor to make your own, or you WANT to feed raw but find the thought of doing so too daunting and don't know where to start, then check out our Organic Paws range at organicpaws.com.au and email us today at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange delivery.
Taste test 1 ... Green Tripe
As a holistic treatment and training business, Ruff Diamonds believes in feeding not only the brain but the body.
That's why we are so proud to be a stockist for Organic Paws. We believe in their products and can't sing their praises enough.
Today, we tested their Green Tripe Mini Balls. Well ... at least the dogs did. And they went down a treat.
Green Tripe is one of our favourite foods to feed our pets. Not only are the balls packed full of probioitics, prebiotics and digestive enzymes, they also contain essential amino acids, vitamins and other nutrients.
According to the Organic Paws website: "Its unique health-enhancing properties help to boost the immune system, purify the blood, and help remove harmful toxins and parasites. Fed daily also helps to balance hormones and enhance liver function, increase energy and vitality levels and enhance overall longevity. Perfect to help pets recover from digestive problems, skin conditions, poor gut and chronic ill health".
I've been a huge advocate of green tripe for many years now but it's Organic Paws' mini balls I choose over all others. This is because these are not freeze-dried, they don't have to be reconstituted with water, and nor do they come in powdered form which is sprinkled over the foods. Now I'm not saying there is anything wrong with these other products. There's not and they are great, but if I want to ensure the benefits of green tripe are at their most enhanced, then I'm going to go with the product that has the least human intervention. That goes for anything we put into our bodies or that of our pets. The more processed, the less benefits.
