Most dog parents want to feed their pets the best food for them, so there’s been a lot of interest in raw dog food in recent years. Feeding your pup a raw dog food diet plan can seem daunting at first, but there are many great raw dog food brands out there that make feeding dogs raw food easy, convenient and simple. Chewy carries many of the best raw dog food formulas, including frozen, freeze-dried and dry food, plus raw mixers, toppers and treats to add extra nutrition to your dog’s diet. We even use special packaging and shipping processes to ensure your frozen raw dog food delivery arrives fresh and ready to go. Whatever kind of dog raw food diet plan you’re implementing, Chewy can deliver it right to your door!
Raw food comes in several forms, so you’ll have to decide which type fits your lifestyle and diet requirements best. Frozen raw dog food is considered by many to be the purest type next to homemade due to its minimal processing, but it requires refrigeration both before and after opening and special shipping to keep it from spoiling. Freeze dried raw dog food is shelf-stable and doesn’t require refrigeration, employing a special freeze-drying process instead to preserve many of the nutrients of raw without cooking. Dry raw dog food formulas incorporate elements of freeze-dried raw food into regular kibble, either by coating each piece or mixing in pieces of raw for flavor and nutrition.
Raw dog mixers and toppers let you mix raw into whatever food your ordinarily feed, for a healthy boost of taste and nutrients. You can also find raw dog treats to either complement your raw diet plan or provide a very special addition to a regular diet.
Chewy offers many ways to feed your dog premium nutrition and tasty good meals. We carry several types of human grade dog food to help you ensure your dog’s eating quality ingredients, along with things like grain-free, ancestral, limited ingredient and organic dog food varieties to satisfy every canine need. Whatever your best friend likes to eat, Chewy has lots of ways to keep his healthy appetite satisfied. Shop our great selection of raw dog food and start designing a delicious new menu for your pup!
Frequently Asked Questions
Is raw food good for dogs?
Raw food can be good for dogs, but it’s not right for everyone. The whole food ingredients, minimal processing, and lack of artificial ingredients and preservatives are generally considered healthy for canines, but there are many non-raw diets that offer these same benefits, too. Talk to your vet about the potential benefits of raw for your dog and see what diet works best for both your lifestyle and your dog’s needs.
What are the benefits of a raw food diet for dogs?
The benefits of a raw food diet for dogs are not easy to pin down, as every dog is different and not all raw diets are the same. Some proponents of raw diets in general cite easier digestion, increased energy levels, lower risk for allergies and improved coat and dental health as benefits, but a consultation with your vet will help you better assess your options. There are many minimally processed diets, including partial raw diets, freeze-dried raw, limited ingredient and hypoallergenic diets that may be more appropriate for your pet.
