Can you feed the frozen raw as a topper to freeze dried kibble
Answer by ChewyAug 18, 2021
While this Raw Freeze-Dried Meals Cage-Free Chicken Recipe for Puppies is a complete and balanced diet for growing puppies, it can be used as a topper.

How much food do I increase per 10 LB if my puppy weighs more than chart? My 7 MO old weight 67 lbs
Answer by ChewyMay 03, 2021
If a puppy is expected to weigh over 70lbs as an adult, it is considered a large breed puppy. Large breed puppies have different nutritional needs during their growth period. Instinct Raw Boost Large Breed Puppy Grain-Free Recipe with Real Chicken & Freeze-Dried Raw Pieces Dry Dog food is available on our site.

Do you feed this just by itself or do you have to mix with kibble?
Answer by ChewyApr 12, 2021
This food is considered a balanced meal, and does not need to be mixed with the kibble.

puppy loves it!

My Cavalier puppy will not eat kibble and gobbles this right up! I normally try to keep her away from chicken but she is obsessed with this. Only thing is that her stool is softer on a freeze dried diet.

Less expensive than it first seems

This is the only food my mini goldendoodle puppy will scarf down without a hassle. If you follow the package’s cups-per-day guidelines, it seems outrageously expensive. But I asked my vet how many calories my puppy needs per day, and realized that I was feeding him almost DOUBLE his max by following the lowest end of the package range for his age & weight. (He is 18 lbs & 5 months and needs 340 cals, or a cup and 3/4 per day. 400 cals max for a day of vigorous exercise. NOT 3–4.75 cups, or 570–902 calories per the package!) Apparently all dog food packages grossly overestimate feeding amount. Quality is great and picky puppy loves it enough to use for treats. Def ask your vet to do the calculation as to how many calories your puppy actually needs, and remember that includes treats!

Great food for my chihuahua puppies

They are picky eaters and do not like kibble. When I found this, it is all they eat with other treats like chicken every so often.

This is my pups favorite thing to eat

My aussie is a bit of a food snob and turns his nose up to most anything, but adding this as a topper to any dry food gets him excited every time. I crumble it up a bit on top of his food so he doesn't just eat it off the top, works great.

super product

I use this as treats for my puppy as it’s completely balanced and using it does not screw up her calcium phosphorus intake I love that I can break it into pieces If I fed it as food meals I’d rehydrate it

My Foxy is such a picky eater

My pom is such a picky eater. Thought I would give this a try! NOPE ! She won't eat it but she dose this cute thing with her nose and pushes it away! What am I going to do with this girl? We have tryed dry Orijen puppy food, dry Nutro brown rice and chicken puppy food and now this brand of food! Perhaps I just spoil her too much by preparing her homemade food and now she's just not going to eat any of the already made dry hard stuff!

Finally Freeze Dried Puppy!

This is one of the only brands of freeze dried puppy food I could find! I love that it includes ground bone and variety of parts of animal/prey, that being said, it smells pretty bad! Not like some other freeze dried adult foods we've tried. Puppy seems to love it, but doesn't go wild for it. Our dog is really picky, and he does pick these morsels out leaving the dry kibble in the bowl. Overall I'd say we like it! But the calorie /cup ratio is not very good, especially for the price. My puppy fills up after about 1.5 cups per meal, but for his weight, requires 10 cups a day? That's almost an entire bag/day. No way he can keep up with that much volume of food, so I'm not sure if he's getting enough calories with this.

He Loves it!!

My Giant breed puppy loves it. I've started adding it to his large breed puppy kibble and he's gobbling it down! It is the perfect combination for a picky pup. When I opened the package it smelled so good too. I'll be keeping this on the menu for quite a while.
