Raw Diet For Your Dog
At San Rocco Cane Corso we believe in supplementing our dogs with the most natural diet “A raw diet”.
There are many health benefits to feeding a raw diet, especially the Cane Corso, or any large breed for that matter since the larger breeds can be more at risk for digestive issues. One thing to keep in mind is that having your dog eat from a raised food bowl is not good for their health, nor are certain foods, the easiest food for your Cane Corso Mastiff to digest by far is RAW!
It was not long ago that I visited Italy and noticed my cousin was feeding his dogs raw only, I was previously a believer in raw, however i decided to do lots of research on this topic and I became a firm believer in RAW. We are programmed in the USA to buy kibble and for some reason we reject the diet for our dogs that wolves eat in the wild, keep in mind that DNA of wolves is about 99.6% similar to that of our domestic dogs.
I must admit I am an advocate of raw and I will at times give raw to my dogs. Preparing raw can be time consuming and it can indeed create some potential health issues with humans like the risk of salmonella.
A good way to benefit from a raw diet without putting yourself at risk is to feed a commercial raw diet to your dogs or puppies.
BARF, is a great food that I feed when a dog needs extra nutrition or a dog that is lactating. Its a bit pricey so I cant afford to feed it to all my dogs, however if I only had one or two Cane Corsos you can be sure I would feed this food 100% of the time.
Dr. Ian Billinghurst (DVM) based on his 40 years of research. The BARF (Biologically Appropriate Raw Food) World “multi-mix patties” are convenient and are shipped right to your door. This is what we recommend MOST for our dogs and puppies. (They look like large hamburgers) Feed about HALF of the amount on the bag (that would be for a very active, working dog) Also, be sure to use coupon code #1021 to get FREE FOOD in your first order, and also save and extra 10%off your first order. By that time, its about the same price as a premium commercial kibble…but the BEST, most appropriate diet you can feed your dog. Note: not all dog foods touting they are “raw” are truly raw. Many are simply kibble ingredients in a ‘soft’ form. This is NOT true raw and still contain lots of processed carbs and starches with cheap protein sources. We ONLY recommend BARF World Patties because of the research and the formulator.
Many dogs are deprived of the moisture that they need in their diet because their whole lives they are on only dry kibble. However, we see the many dog food companies trying to solve this problem with canned dog food that lacks nutrition and is mostly moisture. And how fresh is that really? A balanced meal of raw veggies, protein, and meaty, ground bone is the most natural you can get when it comes to feeding your dog. Dogs do not need an excess of carbohydrates in their diet to thrive.
Not all raw foods are equal! As dog food companies begin to jump on the bandwagon of raw feeding, as you can image, as this food revolution takes hold. Many are pumping out low-quality foods (with cheap proteins in the forms of beans!!) that are nothing more than the poor ingredients in the processed kibble foods. They are adding GMO’s, phytoestrogens, fillers, meat “meal” (not true high-quality protein), and legume-based proteins. They process it and pump it full of sugar in a tube and call it “raw.” Beware of these products with high fructose, and anything with lots of legumes or soy. This will wreak havoc on your pet’s hormones (in turn, thyroid), and other organ functions.
BARF is truly complete and balanced, convenient, and simple to feed (if not homemade) with high-quality proteins from non-GMO, grass-fed animals and without antibiotics. The fruits and veggies are in a pulverized form (the only form that pets can assimilate), are organic, and are all grown on small farms in the USA.

The convenient patty form is easy to feed your dog and stores easily in your freezer. There are 4 varieties that you can rotate without causing any GI issues.
I recommend feeding half kibble (Life’s Abundance Grain Free Dog Food, I feel this is the Best Dog Food For Your Cane Corso), half raw diet. Not only will you see smaller stools on this diet, but with keeping the kibble in their feeding schedule, it makes it more convenient for when you do take a trip either with or without your dog. But we should note that BARF does carry freeze-dried nuggets now that you can have on hand when you travel or if you are away from home or your pet is at a daycare or boarding kennel. This way his body is still adjusted to kibble and you don’t have to worry about keeping patties frozen. And you know the kibble you are feeding, is a HIGH-quality one. Not to mention, both of these food companies deliver right to your door, deeply frozen which kills all parasites and bacteria. Can’t get much better than that! BARF World also makes countless other holistic products for your pet that you’ll find yourself adding to your inventory!
TIPS FOR CHANGING TO RAW: Feed the what is recommended by weight on the bag (unless your dog is a working VERY active dog)… it’s better to spread out the feedings in small amounts at first, mixing the old food and new food for about 5 days. You may notice a loser stool, to harden the stool i recommend a teaspoon of pumpkin with each meal (the sugar free one typically used for pumpkin pie).
