What’s for Dinner?
Foods are healthiest as close to nature and as unprocessed as possible.
Serving our pets wholesome foods is not much different from feeding
ourselves a healthy diet. Our pets bodies are adapted to fresh raw
foods, such as meats, bones, fish, chicken and also various plant
foods. Many commercial food products or nutritional supplements
available fail to provide your pets with the outstanding goodness
that is to be found in freshly prepared foods.
A Question of Health
The more that is learned about the beneficial elements in fresh
foods the more it becomes evident that these elements collectively
play a major role in keeping our pets' bodies healthy and ultimately
However, we also believe that high quality commercial products also
help us provide the essential vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants
needed in cats and dogs of all ages. We are very happy to feed our
pets the Royal Canin range of delicious nutritional products.
A long time ago I started feeding my dogs according to Dr Ian Billinghursts BARF diet. My dogs have never looked back. They have always had wonderful soft shiny coats – which is very important as we all love to pat our pets, fresh breath a must for up close & personal, no vet fees (except for annual vaccinations & heartworm)meaning more money that can then be spent on doggy toys & beds, and, white shiny teeth – excellent for crunching those wonderful healthy bones & once again no vet fees to clean them – see above for ways of spending money saved!!
Not only are there the benefits that we see above but others like longevity, very few skin problems, smaller less smelly stoels (fantastic!!) , bright eyes and much healthier happy dogs.
AND it is not difficult or expensive. Chicken wings, necks, carcasses, the softer non weight bearing raw meaty bones, fresh sardines (always a favourite with mine) and the wonderfully easy Dr Billinghurst meat patties or Big Dog Barf patties.
Start your best friends on the raw, natural diet at Calabash Kennels and you will have happy, healthy dogs for life.

RAW Food for Dogs
Ensuring your pets wellbeing
RAW Food for dogs (also known as BARF – Bones and RAW Foods Diet or Biologically Appropriate Raw Food) is loaded with natural raw ingredients to ensure optimum health, wellbeing and longevity.
Big Dog RAW Food diets offer essential balanced nutrition, based on the natural instinct of your dog. RAW Food contains the finest Australian grown raw ingredients sourced from leading human consumption facilities. Where possible we try to source from organic resources or local farms.
Big Dog RAW Food diets have a nutrient packed profile that is:
- unaltered by temperature
- free from fillers, chemicals or preservatives
- already supporting your pets’ health after their first meal.
Our recipes all contain the natural forms of essential vitamins, minerals, enzymes and oils.
Making the switch is a natural choice!
We wouldn’t let our two legged children dine on cereal, chips, biscuits or processed foods as a staple, so why should we base our four legged family member’s diet on these types of foods? By including a range of whole raw, natural foods in their diet we encourage optimal health and longevity.
The kind of diet that nature intended or they would dine on in the wild.
