Our interest in raw diets for pets developed several years ago when one of our beloved Golden Retrievers became seriously ill. We couldn't help but remember how our mother had chided us for years for feeding commercial kibbles to our pets. "It's not real food," she used to tell us. "In Europe, we fed our dogs and cats the same foods we ate." And then she'd ask, "Do you think you'd be healthy today if I'd only fed you overcooked cereal?"
As we searched for ways to help our dog, we learned a lot more about nutrition for small animals. And we realized that our Mom was right -- raw meat and bones, along with a little bit of fruit and vegetables, were the diet nature intended for our furry family members. So we threw out the kibble and started feeding the raw meats and bones we had so readily available to us. When friends and customers heard about how we were feeding our own animals, they asked us if we'd sell them the same meats and bones we were using. And so began our Oma's Pride line of natural pet food.
