FAQ

How do I begin introducing a raw diet to my pet?

Congratulations on your decision to make the switch! When transitioning from a cooked food such as kibble, you should go slowly, typically transitioning over 7-10 days. Most people start with the following guideline and then adjust the timeframe as needed:

  • Days 1-3: 25% Stella & Chewy's along with 75% current diet
  • Days 4-6: 50% Stella & Chewy' along with 50% current diet
  • Days 7-9: 75% Stella & Chewy's along with 25% current diet
  • Days 10-Forward: 100% Stella & Chewy's

It's important to remember that some digestive upset is normal during a transition this typically shows up in diarrhea, constipation or (very rarely) vomiting. This will eventually subside as your pet adjusts to the new food.

Is Stella & Chewy's appropriate for puppies?

Yes! Stella & Chewy's dinners for dogs are designed to be complete and balanced for all life stages this means they're great for puppies, too! They do meet AAFCO standards for complete and balanced nutrition across all life stages. You will, however, want to introduce them slowly a typical transition takes about 7-10 days. Puppies do need more food than adults at the same weight. Feed up to twice the amount recommended on feeding guidelines. We also offer a puppy-specific lineup of Freeze-Dried Dinner Patties!

Where are Stella & Chewy's ingredients sourced?

All Stella & Chewy's ingredients are responsibly sourced from farmers and ranchers we know and trust.

  • The meats, poultry, fish are antibiotic-free and have no added hormones.
  • Beef, Lamb and Venison are sourced from North America, Australia and New Zealand. They are grass-fed.
  • Chicken, Duck, Goose and Turkey are sourced from North America and Europe. They're cage-free.
  • The fish is North American, wild-caught.
  • The rabbit is from Western Europe and/or North America.
  • All fruits and vegetables are 100% organic. They are all sourced from North and South America based on seasonal availability.
  • The vitamin and mineral mix we use our products is formulated for us in the United States the individual components are from the US and Western Europe with Taurine from Japan.

What are the sharp things I'm finding in the freeze-dried foods? Aren't they harmful?

Stella & Chewy's adds raw ground bone to all dinners as it's an essential part of a raw diet. The bone is safe and highly digestible when raw. The bone is ground with a 3/16 grind plate this means the bone could appear up to approximately 1/4-in size. The bone in the diet is ground to that size because of the health benefits it provides. A carnivore's teeth and body are designed to consume bone especially raw bone, like the bone used in each S&C meal. If it's ground to a powder, it doesn't have as many of the benefits. While it may feel sharper to our fingers, a carnivore's body is designed to consume and process the bone effectively and safely, as long as it's never cooked, heated, or microwaved.

What food safety procedures does Stella & Chewy's follow?

Stella & Chewy's has a patented food safety procedure to ensure the safety of every product. The most powerful step in this procedure is the high-pressure processing (HPP) step this is a cold-water pressure process that effectively eliminates harmful bacteria from the food. This process is used on all products, regardless of the protein. As food-borne bacteria can be present in any type of meat, Stella & Chewy's feel that incurring the extra cost of HPP for all products is the responsible thing to do. This way pet parents can rest assured that they're always bring a safe food into their home. Additionally, HPP is the only reliable method for maintaining the wonderful raw nutrition of our products while still removing harmful pathogens.

All batches of food are sent to a 3rd party testing facility to be tested for both Salmonella and E.coli and Listeria no food ever leaves the plant without negative test results in hand. These test results are posted on stellaandchewys.com. Stella & Chewy's is highly committed to creating the most nutritious, safe, and delicious product on the market.

How do you prepare Stella & Chewy's freeze-dried foods for dogs?

Freeze-dried Dinners and Mixers for dogs can be fed dry or rehydrated prior to feeding. If you choose to use the products dry, please be sure your pet is drinking plenty of water at mealtime. If your pet isn't a big drinker, or you're afraid that they may not get enough water, then rehydrate the food with cool or warm (never hot) water prior to feeding. If fed dry, the food can sit out for up to 12 hours prior to discarding. If fed rehydrated, the food can sit out for up to 2 hours.

Can I feed my pet more than one flavor of Stella & Chewy's?

We do suggest rotating proteins every 2-6 weeks. This means you would feed one flavor consistently for 2-6 weeks, then switch to another flavor for 2-6 weeks, etc. This is a great way to give your dog variety and to help keep protein-based allergies at bay.

Can the Stella & Chewy's freeze-dried foods be cooked or heated?

Stella & Chewy's products cannot be cooked, heated or microwaved. Doing so removes much of the nutrition. Additionally, we add raw, ground bone to our products as it's an essential part of a raw diet. Raw bone is incredibly safe however when bone cooks, it can become brittle and can splinter. Cooked bone is never safe for animals.

What is the shelf life on Stella & Chewy's freeze-dried products?

Stella & Chewy's freeze-dried foods have an expiration date of 18 months past the date of production. It is suggested to use our products by this date, or within a few days after. Much past that and we would recommend discarding the bag. Freezing or refrigerating would not extend the listed shelf life.

How many patties or scoops are in each bag of Stella & Chewy's?

All of Stella & Chewy's products are packaged by weight, not by patty count - this means that the number of patties per bag can vary somewhat.

Are the cat and dog products the same and can they be used interchangeably?

It's a question we hear a lot and we always suggest using the Stella & Chewy's product that was designed specifically for your cat or dog. Our dinners for dogs are not harmful to a cat, but they don't offer the balanced nutritional requirements of a cat either. You could occasionally offer the dog food to your cat, but wouldn't you prefer to give them the nutrients their furry little bodies need?

Do I need to give my pet any supplements in addition to the Stella & Chewy's dinners?

Nope! Zip, zilch, nada. Stella & Chewy's dinners for dogs and cats are designed to be complete and balanced. As long as you're using the product appropriate for its species, our dinners don't require additional supplements.

Why do the patties sometimes look, smell or feel different?

Just like the food we eat; everything isn't always identical. Our products are made in small batches using natural ingredients. And while there's never any change in the formula or the ingredients we use, you may occasionally see lot variations between batches. The differences are safe and normal in a natural product like ours.

Is Stella & Chewy's suitable for diabetic cats or dogs?

Many pet parents have told us that their animals thrive on a raw diet because of the low carbohydrate content. But every animal is different, so we recommend consulting with your veterinarian to determine what is best suited for your pet.

    great food

    By on

    I have tried several treats ,food, and food toppers from Stella & Chewy's. All of their products are high quality as far as i'm concerned . I have large dogs (100+ lbs.) and they could devour a bag in one sitting so I use it as a food topper and they love it( they also get fresh chicken with each meal along with a high quality canned & dry food) which is saying something. I would recommend it as a regular food for a smaller breed !

    Delish Heated With Hot Water & Fav Kibble!

    By on

    I have a finicky Super Corgi Mix named Howie, who has very discerning taste. He is 16 1/2 years old now and while his appetite is okay, it isn’t the best *(he has never had the voracious Corgi munchies), so getting him to eat, can be challenging. He has been indulging in Stella & Chewy since I adopted him 8 years ago but goes on strike with all food I give him, including canned foods, these last 2 years, along with making roasted chickens with broths and mixing with whatever I could get him to eat;ground lamb, beef steak so on. I had recently noticed if I sprinkled my collagen onto his canned food, he REALLY liked it and would most times, eat it up. Low and behold ~ Howie came out of his food I have a finicky Super Corgi Mix named Howie, who has very discerning taste. He is 16 1/2 years old now and while his appetite is okay, it isn’t the best *(he has never had the voracious Corgi munchies), so getting him to eat, can be challenging.

I had recently noticed if I sprinkled my collagen onto his canned food, he REALLY liked it and would most times, eat it up. Low and behold ~ Howie came out of his food strike with this particular version of Stella & Chewy Hip & Joint Boost! I typically used to add Stella & Chewy dry, crumbled on top of his kibble for added pawsome nutrition but as he has aged, I wanted to make sure the dry fly away of the crumbled food, didn’t end up his old nose or end up aspirated into his lungs so I did what I did when I first stated purchasing these packed with a punch nutritional products 8 years ago and started adding water, along with a generous portion of Stella & Chewy’s and his fav kibble~making a delectable stew and he was in! **even through his food strikes, we have relied heavily on Stella & Chewy products for high nutritional value-ESPECIALLY now, when he needs the added values to his diet...at 16 1/2, nutrition is impactful. We love the fact Stella & Chewy has never had a recall. This company provides nutritional, tasty food and offer really great savings with periodic sales that help us load up on all kinds of goodness so we are thankful for that! Howie loves all of the Stella & Chewy’s products~he has also tried the Beef with probiotic, the duck, game bird, beef, lamb, chicken, red meats~actually, we have tried every one of Stella & Chewy freeze dried | frozen & the raw coated kibble is really yummy too! … more

    Old batch???

    By on

    I have been buying these meal mixers for my 2 Yorkies to add to the food we make them, (baked skinless chicken , brown rice and carrots.). I crumble them up and sprinkle them on the top. I wanted to make sure they were getting all the nutrients they needed. However, the last bag I purchased was so hard I was afraid they might break their little teeth. I had to get out my blender so that I was able to crush them into a powder. A lot more added work that I definitely do not need. I do recommend them ONLY if they arrive as described.

    Bandit Loves This!!

    By on

    Fed the Cage-Free chicken dinner to my 3yr old Border Collie for the first time on 1/28/2020. I let him sniff his new food and his tail wagged furiously! I could tell he WANTED his breakfast right then and he attacked his food bowl with speed and had it all totally consumed in a nano-second!

    Bad batch?

    By on

    Not sure if I got sent a bad batch but the morsels in my bag were EXTREMELY hard and took forever to hydrate/break down. I had it soaked in water for more than few minutes and even tried breaking it up in the water w/ a spoon but it was rock hard. Even after stabbing/smashing it w/ a spoon, the bits still took awhile to break down. I've bought their freeze dried before and this never happened.

    Relieves Stiffness

    By on

    My 5.5 year old Aussie mix dog got stiff after running and playing until I added Stella & Chewy's Hip & Joint Boost as a daily topper to his meal. Now after heavy exercise he doesn't have trouble getting up and moves freely.
