Description

Archetype is the original raw dog and cat food diet from Wysong, and emulates the food canines and felines eat in the wild – the diet they are genetically programmed for. Wysong raw dog & cat food products are manufactured with a proprietary TNT (True Non-Thermal) technology, and are the safest, most genetically appropriate raw pet foods on the market. Archetype, first and foremost, is not heated above 118 degrees Fahrenheit – a True Non-Thermal freeze-dried raw product! These products are designed to achieve optimal nutrition that is beyond minimal regulatory standards for so-called “100% complete and balanced” diets.

Key Benefits

  • Suitable for all life stages dogs and cats!
  • Starch Free and meat-based, and thus does not contribute to the common carbohydrate glut diseases in the modern companion animal community
  • Contains meats, plant nutrients, nutraceuticals, prebiotics, probiotics, vitamins, minerals, and an array of micronutrients
  • High in natural protein that is rich in amino acids and fats that are naturally protected against free radical/oxidation degradation
  • Free of non-nutritional additives used by manufacturers to create color, texture, stool consistency, or shelf-life

Cautions

This product contains raw meats. Use the same precautions you would with any other raw meat. Wash hands and surfaces after contact. Keep product away from children.

  • Cats like it!

    By on

    I have five cats, and not all of them eat this, but the two who do love it. They like it dry, but make sure you have plenty of water available. They are still transitioning to eating it, so I give it to them in small amounts. I have tried sprinkling it over their canned food, but the taste must be very different, and they don't eat it. I might try to transition to Wysong wet food, but all this transitioning is hard to do. For now, I will use it as a supplemental snack. They like the chunks, but much of this is already crushed. I'll figure some way of using it.

  • Would be 5 stars if there were more in the bag for the money!

    By on

    I am a longtime buyer of Archetype burgers for my two Bichons, and I have been hoping for an option that did not require breaking up the burgers. I tried this product, and my dogs love it. The only downside is that there is so little in the bag. Please, Wysong, recommend a product for me with the taste of the burgers, but with the mix of this product that is so much easier to feed. I love your products, but need more volume!

  • Healthy freeze dried food for dogs and cats

    By on

    Both my dog and cat love this food. The cat has difficulty breaking up large pieces so I do that for her. She doesn't like it wet but the dog does. It's expensive to feed as their only food so I use it as a topper for the dog and along with canned food for my cat. Great ingredients.

  • I'm beyond thankful for this food!

    By on

    Our 14 yo Persian is the epitome of finicky. After being diagnosed with FORLs, her beloved Orijen was off the table and the search for a wet food was on. We tried them all. The only type she would consistently eat was tuna pate, which is not a good long-term solution for fear of mercury, on top of eating added gums every day. We went with the "if it's all she has she'll eventually eat it" technique. Wrong. This resulted in a very skinny and malnourished kitty. In comes Wysong to save the day! Kitty has been eating (and loving!) Wysong for about a month now and has noticeably gained weight, looks happier and healthier, and has a much less pungent litterbox.

Sure, it's expensive, but it's still cheaper per ounce than any other freeze-dried chicken food on Chewy, and it's worth it for this mama to stop wasting so much food and money trying to get her to eat. To add, I don't rehydrate the food as I'm scared to ruin a good thing, so I've been trying to feed wet food alongside this to get some more moisture. Instead, she laps up all the liquid from the wet food and eats her freeze-dried only. :P … more

    I love Dr. Wysong's food - and my fussy Papillon loves it, too! It's perfect and an easy raw option.

  • My cat's favorite food

    By on Top 50 Contributor

    I've tried other raw/freeze dried foods and my cat didn't care for them. But.....the Wysong Archetype is the one food she actually will beg for. She sits by her food bowl and quietly stares at me and then looks into her bowl. She goes back and forth like this until I put the Wysong Archetype into her food bowl. I feed her a diet of canned food in the morning and Wysong Epigen 90 sprinkled with this Wysong Archetype. She wolfs it down! I like the fact that she is receiving the benefits of raw food and I don't have to worry about her nutrition. Great product!!!!

  • Very good raw food

    By on

    I normally use Archetype Burgers from Wysong, so wanted to try this out. It was very good for my crew of 15; just not enough! There was a good balance between chunky and ground bits. I put it in each bowl, covered with warm water, added Wysong kibble, and they all totally enjoyed it.

  • Cats Loved It

    By on

    My 2 cats both loved the chicken. I do not wet it, but just sprinkle it on top of their food. The extra protein fills them up, and keeps them happy all day til dinner.

  • Picky eater eats it.

    By on

    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.

    The dog loves it sprinkled on her food. She is elderly and not a great eater, but she eats it all with this on it. Some of my cats like it, but prefer it wet and will not eat it dry.
