There are many toxins in ice melts that can damage your dog's paws as well as the environment.
Recently I went to the Raw and Natural Dog Summit in Chicago. I learned a lot from the various experts on nutrition and health. One company that I connected with was Cocotherapy. These two sisters from the Philippines, grew up using coconut oils and eating coconut all their lives. They learned to use coconut for food and health in their daily lives. Their family owns a coconut farm in the Philippines, and have harvested coconut for generations. So, these sisters know a ton about coconut!
All foods have energy and characteristic properties that affect our bodies. At Ruff Ruff Raw, we use these properties to help heal or encourage your pet's body energy to become more balanced. For example, if your pet has inflammation of the gut, or itchy skin, we suggest cooling foods. However, if your pet has arthritis or general fatigue, we recommend a warming food such as lamb. Even seasonally, we may recommend different foods for the varying Michigan weather.
