Finnish meat and fish
The Oscar products only contain clean, high-quality Finnish meat and organs: beef, pork, chicken, and turkey. Meat is the main ingredient of raw food meals. It provides the right taste and the fat and proteins required by dogs. Organs contain essential vitamins and micronutrients. For example, a small piece of liver will be enough to satisfy a dog’s daily intake requirement for vitamin A.
Salmon is also used in Oscar products. Salmon introduces plenty of beneficial fatty acids and energy. Minced bones and all, salmon is also an excellent natural source of calcium.
Vegetables, seaweed, eggs, linseed oil, and salmon oil
We use puréed Finnish vegetables and eggs to naturally introduce more vitamins and minerals to meals: vitamins C, E, D, and K, B group vitamins, choline, iron, selenium, and zinc. Vegetables are rich in dietary fibre and both balance and lighten meat-based meals. Eggs contain plenty of easily digested proteins and vitamins A and B, and their amino acid composition is ideal for dogs. Seaweed is a versatile foodstuff and a source of calcium, iodine, magnesium, etc. Linseed oil contains beneficial fatty acids and vitamin E. Salmon oil is an especially good source of omega-3 fatty acids.
Food allergies and raw feeding
Raw feeding is a good choice for many allergic and sensitive dogs.
Avoiding allergens is easy with ready-made frozen Oscar foods – make the perfect meals for your dog. Oscar foods are grain-free, single-animal protein source products that are ready to serve raw or cooked.
Partial raw feeding for dogs
If raw food is only used as part of a dog’s daily diet and the rest is dry pet food or home meals, for example, this can be called mixed feeding or 50/50 feeding. It is important to ensure that the meals fulfil the dog’s daily intake requirements for vitamins and micronutrients. Make sure to choose high-quality dry foods (at least 70 per cent meat) and feed your dog a variety of raw food.
You can also use Oscar raw food products to make delicious doggie meals at home. Raw foods can be cooked, and Oscar minced meat is an excellent choice for making well-balanced meals for dogs at home. We have a selection of delicious Oscar recipes.
