Wysong Archetype Chicken Formula Freeze-Dried Dog & Cat Food, 7.5-oz bag
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.
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
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!

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
Pets like it..however...

My dog and cats like the taste but it gave my dog horrible gas and diarrhea. And that was just using less than a tablespoon mixed in with his breakfast. So, although I'm sure it's a wonderful product, I probably won't be using it again. All of the Wysong foods gave my dog gas and loose stools initially, even though I introduced them slowly. Just can't deal with the gas that is produced when I use Archetype!

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

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

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

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.

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.
Most like it.

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.

Product was crushed, not as easy to portion out as their other products. Dogs ate it okay, but I won't buy it anymore.
