Freeze-Dried, Solution-Based Feeding

Solution-based feeding is the focus for all Grandma Lucy’s recipes. Each nutritious freeze-dried formula is made using only wholesome, minimally processed ingredients.

Ingredients with a Purpose

It takes high-quality ingredients to produce high-quality food. That’s why Grandma Lucy’s uses only the highest quality ingredients from trusted suppliers and farms. Pureformance recipes are perfect for all breeds and life stages—feed them as a main meal, topper or as an addition to any homemade treat!

Family Values

Grandma Lucy’s is a company that cares. They care about pets, they care about nutrition, and they care about ingredients. They also care about giving, and they care about getting it all done right.

How Freeze-Drying Works

The freeze-drying process used by Grandma Lucy’s removes 92% of the water in the ingredients, leaving a food that is lightweight, compact, shelf-stable and preservative-free. Compared to other drying processes like dehydration or air drying, freeze-drying is better at retaining the characteristics of raw food. It preserves more flavor and keeps much of the food’s original texture after reconstitution.

Quality You Can Trust

Only lightly braised, minimally processed whole muscle and organ meats are used, with no meat meals or by-products.

About Grandma Lucy’s

Grandma Lucy’s began when founders Breann & Eric Shook started their quest for safe, healthy dog treats. Their 11-year old English Cocker Spaniel, Lucy, had developed food allergies that prevented her from eating most treats, and as they learned what was in pet food, they were surprised at the inferior ingredient quality. After consulting with vets and nutritionists, they started home cooking Lucy’s meals and treats, and what resulted was the basis for the healthy pet foods they make today.

Picky dog liked this 1

I ordered 4 different raw food mixes to try as 1 of my dogs had stopped eating the 1 I had been using. He had no problems with this 1 and I like it's consistency too. I like that you only have to wait 5 minutes bc my dogs go insane at feeding times.

Never seen my dog more excited to eat

I feed my dog half raw half kibble so he’s usually very excited to eat already, but since switching my kibble with this while we’re on a protein elimination diet, I’ve never seen him more exited to eat. After eating every last bit from the slow feeder he keeps looking up at the bag to see if he can have more! We’ve also been recording any reactions he may have to food and this premix doesn’t irritate his stomach at all so far. He’s less itchy and I haven’t noticed any room clearing farts from him (and I usually do) since the switch. Sensitive stomachs approved. We mix this with ground Turkey and water and have been calling it his “chickpea stew”. His ears perk up everytime we use the term now lol.

dogs approved

First I want to say ,when we got our first German shorthair pointer over 25 yrs ago ,Grunt he had so many health,skin issues then he we got him tested .After three allergy tests we found out he was allergic to all grain if it came from a seed he was allergic to it and also poultry even chicken fat which was in 99percent of every food on the market even high end food ,we did find a food based on raw but was first expensive and second only brought on line threw the company ,then the company got over whelmed with orders they sold to Purina and the food changed and the allergies came with that change so we changed the food yet again ,we have always fed raw based food and even fed raw in between to all our dogs after Grunt's issues . Grunt lived to 13 yrs old and have since had/have three more Gsps since Grunt .,I wanted to feed completely raw but with the chemicals fed to meat animals and chemicals sprayed and the GMO fruit and veggies is crazy ,so I wanted a base to help in making sure my dogs aka furchildren are getting what nutrients they need ,I researched for days,weeks and found Grandma Lucy's ,to be honest was / is a little worried about the chic pea and potato base which makes up most of the food but I alway give my dogs fresh home grown veggies in season and I freeze for use out of season and the same with the fruits and I make home made yogurt weekly . So I got a small bag first and tried it since i did already feed them the potato based one and all three loved it ,i also make my own bone broth and when cooking off the meat bones i strain out the meat which is med raw cooked and put the meat separated in the freezer from the broth ,and time to time i have cooked potatoes and sweet potatoes so they were used the consistency. So far they are doing awesome and less stools and shiny coats /eyes more energy and over all health is awesome ,just wish there was more veggies and fruit then the peas and potato .

Both my pups love it!!

I have a 11 year old Jack Russell and a 6 year old Staffy Chihuahua- both are very hearty eaters and love this stuff mixed with Stella and Chewys Raw Patties. Great for getting extra protein and fiber into their diets and I love that it is grain free. My dog Kyla suffers from seasonal allergies and having her on a grain free diet + raw has helped her tremendously! No more trips to the vet every 3 months for allergies shots. Their fur is nice and soft too! Highly recommended!

Great for supplement

I feed all my pets raw food and I do like to give them the occasional meal with fruits/veggies added, and this does help make it easier to do that. I don't believe in feeding dogs this with every meal, just the occasional one. And definitely not recommended for carnivore cats. Also nice to be able to recognize the ingredients:)

Great alternative to traditional food

After bringing home a rescue puppy with horrible intestinal parasites and the upset belly to go with it, I searched for alternatives for what I could feed her. Starting with plain rice, then poached chicken and rice, and then trying to wean to traditional high quality food. It was a no go! Then I heard about Grandma Lucy’s. First using the premix with poached chicken, and then branching out to the other varieties. I couldn’t be happier. The puppy loves it, as do my other two adult dogs. They literally dance about while I prepare their meals. In the end, I know what is in their meals, I control the amounts and can supplement if desired based on age and growth. I’m very pleased. And ordering from Chewy makes one less trip to the animal supply store for me!

Poodle Gravy!!! The solution to picky pets!

My Standard Poodle is extremely picky. He also has a very high metabolism and needs a higher daily calorie count than an average dog. Grandma Lucy's products cover both of these issues! We do not use the product as a stand-alone food but rather use it to make "gravy" to mix into high-quality kibble which results in a clean bowl! We rotate kibbles each month, providing a different protein every month to prevent food boredom and reduce the risk of allergy development. A 3lb bag of Grandma Lucy's lasts us about 6 weeks. We have tried many different proteins and every formula Grandma Lucy's offers except for the Macanna. Silas has loved them all! We just tried the pre-mix for the first time as it's both more economical and provides the opportunity for more variety. So far I have used ground turkey, ground pork and canned mackerel. I mix 1/2 C. of oat flour (whiz rolled oats in a food processor)into each LB of meat as both a slight thickener for the finished "gravy" (making the product go a little farther) and as a binder for the meat so that I can easily make individual portions with a 2oz scoop. I keep these in the freezer to be added to 1/4 C of dry mix and 3/4 C of hot water. The hot water thaws the meat in about 5 minutes and a quick whip with a fork blends everything together. I let it sit for another 2 minutes and then have the perfect consistency and amount to mix into 1 1/4 C of dry kibble. Each LB of meat yields 16 portions. At $20.89 for a 3 LB bag of Pre-Mix, $3.34 per LB of ground pork, $3.89 per LB of ground turkey and $1.44 per 15.5 oz can of mackeral - this yields 6 weeks of "gravy" for a total $29.56 with the variety he loves. Pre-mix is going to be the way to go for us from now on! Our next bag will be the Artisan Pre-Mix with Lamb, Beef&Liver and Salmon for his protein varieties.

Not for us

This says grain-free, but looks like nothing but. Just makes a mush when water added, even in small amount, and after adding a protein, my 7 just don't care for it at all. I donated both bags to a local rescue. No fault on Chewys part though!!!
