Rated 5 out of 5 by Pauliana My kitty Rosie's favorite freeze dried food!
In answer to a previous reviewer that said Archetype doesn't have Taurine, they are wrong. It does have Taurine and it's the 5th ingredient. They need to read the ingredients more carefully before slamming an excellent product. It should be rehydrated and every bag I have received has both the powder which makes a flavorful gravy and big and small pieces as well. Both my cat and dog love this and it is an wonderful freeze dried choice. Rotating foods is healthy for any dog or cat.. How would you like to eat only one food for all your meals? My cat or dog know that's not right at all. In the wild, the wolf or the cougar don't eat the same thing when they hunt.. They eat a variety of game.. or whatever they are lucky enough to catch.. Variety is the spice of life!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LynnM My dog loves this food
I've been feeding Wysong Archetype to my dog for years. Since the formulation changed, he gets the chicken formula. He loves it and will eat whatever I add it to.
I used to use it as a topping on his commercial kibble. 2 months ago I switched to a homemade diet, raw meats and raw liver, sometimes cooked meats or cooked eggs. Sometimes he'll ignore the food until I add some Archetype, and then he'll gobble it right down.
I think that using this product is an easy way to balance out the meat that I give him, without the fuss of trying to figure out how to find and add all the necessary supplemental ingredients individually.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TenneSue Good Product
I believe that I have tried all the freeze dried and dehydrated raw cat food made, and so far Primal turkey and this Wysong is by far the Favorite with my cats. I have tried Archetype Rabbit and Quail as well, but this is hands down their favorite. What I also like about it is that you can add water to soften it, but, according to the directions, they can eat it as a dry treat, so I sometimes Top their food with the fine, dry pieces, and they seem to enjoy their food all the more this way as well.
It seems to have good ingredients, so I am quite pleased with ANY form or raw, grain free food my cats will eat!

I use Wysong products for the majority of food for dog and cat. Chewy's has a better price than buying direct, and much better than a retail store. Plus I can take advantage of free shipping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BobE Never a morsel left when this is mixed with his Wysong kibble
I use 1/8 cup Archetype + 1/8 cup water and add the mixture to Wysong dry kibble for my small dog's (18lbs) evening meal. My dog loves this mixture and there has never been one kibble morsel remaining. Without the add-on Archetype mixture much of the kibble is not eaten.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brooks My kitty begs for this stuff
I love being able to feed my cat raw food without the hassle of preparing it myself. My cat will beg for this and *point* to her bowl with her nose even if there is other kibble there. I've tried other brands, and Wysong is the only brand she will do that with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anna22 Picky eater eats it.
I mix 50/50 with homemade food or raw for his evening meal and he eats it, which is saying a lot. I rotate this with Orjen freeze dried. I tried Stella and Chewy's but he wouldn't eat it -- but keep in mind he is a picky eater.

This review is written on behalf of my furry pal. He asked me to translate for him. He states this addition to his meal is absolutely delicious. He's been eating it since puphood and still is a favorite!. It is a bit difficult to find in stores so he researched online and found Chewy. With its automatic delivery feature he will never run out of his food. Thank you, Chewy from my pal and I.
