At MeruMhor we have over 30 years experience owning, working, showing and caring for our own dogs and have only one aim – to provide our clients with a quality service that is second to none.
We started Raw Feeding in 2003 with our German Shepherd Dog bitch Meru, she was always a fussy eater and suffered for digestive problems from a very early age, however all these issues disappeared very quickly when we started to feed her a Healthy Natural Raw Diet or “BARF Diet” as some will know it as.
As Breeders ourselves we know the importance of diet and strive to source only the Best Natural Products from Premier & Award Winning UK Suppliers. Which in turn we believe gives the best possible range and choice for our customers and of course to our healthy, happy and content cats & dogs, which after all is what it's all about.
From our experiences, we have witnessed significant improvements to health and vitality in all our dogs that have made the transition to a BARF (Biologically Appropriate Raw Feed). And as the feedback from our clients show all manner of uncomfortable skin, coat, teeth and joint conditions as well as long standing problems relating to digestion, breath and aggressive behaviour have been resolved with their pets fed on the raw diet, it is after all what your dogs and cats are designed to eat!
It is sometimes hard to believe that our best friend's ancestors were hunting and scavenging, eating a diet of raw meat and bone with definitely no cooking involved.
The Problem with Cooking & Processing Food
Cooking and processing food greatly reduces the amounts of essential active enzymes, vitamins and fatty acids found in a raw diet. Many animal foods contain up to 70% wheat and other fillers, which can be difficult to process. These two facts mean modern mass produced foods are not compatible with a healthy diet for cats and dogs.
The Benefits of Raw Foods
Studies have suggested that feeding raw can improve your pets life expectancy, skin, coat, teeth and joints, as well as resolving problems related to digestion, breath and aggression. It can also assist in the resolution of IBS, infections and even wind! But don’t just take our word for it – read our TESTIMONIALS.

"It was so easy to make the transition to raw food; it has totally changed my dog's life"
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I change to raw food immediately?
No. We would recommend a gradual transition to a raw diet over a 7-10 day period. Whilst some pets can tolerate an immediate transition from one type of feed to another, a gradual transition period will ensure that any unnecessary stomach upsets in your dog or cat are avoided.
How do I make the transition?
Easing your pet in to a high protein raw meat and bone diet is easy and convenient. Simply follow the steps below:
Day 1 - Substitute a spoonful of kibble (or high carbohydrate, wet processed food) for a spoonful of raw diet. The spoon size will depend on the size of dog or cat. For example, a teaspoon for a toy breed dog and a tablespoon for a large breed dog.
Day 2 Onwards - Each subsequent day substitute slightly more of the diet until full transition is achieved
Do I need to cook Natural Raw Foods before I feed it to my pet?
No! Raw feed should be served raw, as intended. Cooking the food means you will be cooking the bone contained in the recipe, which even though it has been ground and minced, may cause even small fragments to become brittle or sharp.
Is it too expensive?
This is simply not true! It can cost about £1.50 per day to feed a 25kg dog. Plus, think of the future vets bills you will be saving and the healthy pet you will have in return.
How should I handle raw pet food?
As with handling any raw meat, you should ensure that your hands are washed with soap and water before touching anything else. Clean any juice spills to ensure safety for both you and your pets. Do not allow cross-contamination between surfaces of Natural Raw foods and cooked meats. Always make sure that your pet's bowl is washed clean before and after each meal.
