I got the honor to meet the lovely Charlie and Larry of RawStruck. Charlie and Larry created this awareness platform to educate more people about the power of natural healing.
How A Raw Fresh Diet Changed Everything
Their story started when Charlie and Larry’s dog started experiencing a lot of digestive issues. After trying so many things recommended by the vet, it took just one close friend to recommend trying a fresh raw diet. Next, everything changed.
“It was the only thing that helped our dog.”
This is where Charlie and Larry’s journey began. After seeing the results of just switching their dog’s diet, they had to learn more! RawStruck now travels all over the world learning from hundreds of holistic experts and people who just want to do it right.
Food is Medicine
Charlie and Larry’s meal prep days now involve their dog’s meals too.
“We save money feeding a raw diet since there are no more visits to the vet.”
A lot of people don’t want to jump into a raw diet because of the work and the money. Yes, quickly running to the store and grabbing that bag of kibble and throwing it in a bowel can be easier and some say cheaper than a raw diet.
But think about those vet bills for a moment … I have 7 dogs and I don’t even remember the last time I had to visit the vet! All it takes is a natural healthy diet, some CBD, and a pre & probiotic. That’s it!
Look, I get it. We’re all busy and don’t necessarily have the time. That’s why you can buy ready to go, already prepped, fresh raw food for your dog. Companies like Answers Pet Food, Dr. Harvey’s, and Small Batch Pet Food sell raw diets ready to go for your dog.
Variety is Important
Imagine you had to eat the same meal every day of your whole life … well, that’s the reality to a lot of dogs. Doesn’t sounds nice right? That’s why RawStruck agrees – variety is important!
Switching up your dog’s meal not only gives them different flavors and excitement, but it also gives them the different nutrients they need.
For example, during high flea season, we feed a specific diet to help keep the fleas and ticks away. Crazy right! Just a fresh, right diet can stop fleas from getting to your dog.
“Healthy dogs don’t attract parasites.”
The power of food is incredible! For both us humans and our pets.

Larry and Charly are Pet Parents, just like you! It all started when their baby Milka was constantly sick from so-called “high quality” commercial dog food. Like so many other pet parents, they always thought raw feeding was too expensive, but after switching between brands and frequent visits to the vet, they were finally ready to make the switch to raw and you probably guessed right – No more throwing up for baby Milka! Since that day, almost 2 years ago, they knew they had to research why and went on a journey to study exactly why Milka was always so sick on kibble, and why all her problems disappeared once we switched to raw. Since getting into the bits and pieces of pet nutrition, figuring out the many dark places of the pet food industry, Larry and Charly want nothing more than to spread the word about what it takes to raise a healthy dog.
