Feed up to double the amount for puppies and pregnant or nursing dogs.
Wash hands, utensils, counters, food dishes and related areas thoroughly with hot, soapy water after each feeding. Store freeze - dried products in a cool dark place. Best if fed within 30 days after opening.
Switch to a purely RAW diet slowly. Some pets may take to RAW immediately, while others may take longer. Take at least 10 days to 2 weeks to gradually transition your pet’s diet. This gives the digestive system time to adjust to the new food.
Step 1: Choose a protein (stick with the same protein for the first 2 weeks)
Step 2 (Day 1 - 3): Serve 25% RAW mixed with 75% current food
Step 3 (Day 4 - 6): Serve 50% RAW mixed with 50% current food
Step 4 (Day 7 - 9): Serve 75% RAW mixed with 25% current food
Omg! This is like crack for dogs! They were on it like white on rice. Only negative is that each dog needed their own bowl or they’d growl at each other. I noticed right away that their bodies used most of the food for fuel as their poops became noticeably smaller. They also had more energy and coats are looking good.
MY PICKY EATER ACTUALLY EATS THIS!!
on Jun 2, 2018
Finding something which my most picky little dog would eat was difficult.... we tried all kinds of brands and all kinds of foods. When I ordered this, I didn't have a lot of hope that this one would do any better than the numerous previous tries. I am very glad to report, however, that my picky little rascal took a few sniffs and began eating like this was what he had been waiting for all his life! I have to laugh now, watching him eating. Before I would have to put some chicken juice or something on his food to get him to eat anything other than people food. Now he is happy and so am I!!! Now I get all the flavors and switch them around for variety and he is happy as a piglet in new mudFinding something which my most picky little dog would eat was difficult.... we tried all kinds of brands and all kinds of foods.

My German Shepherd has his neuter surgery yesterday and today he didn't want to eat his regular kibble even tried canned food had no interest. I knew he liked these as treats so I gave it to him and gobbled it right up. So happy I got him to eat so he could take his medications.

I was hesitant to re-order these after a recall of some of their products but ordered some to take to herding camp.
We use these for training treats and our puppy loves them. They are just the right size for catch the kibble game.
She Loves It

I have bought this product twice now. The first bag I bought, the nibs were larger and I had to cut them before hydrating. The new bag has smaller nibs, which makes it much easier.
My little Yorkie loves it- my reason for reordering!

My dog absolutely loves this food. He does not hesitate to scarf it down and lick the bowl clean! I add warm water to the mini nibs which makes the food even more delicious. He has a very sensitive stomach and can't eat a lot of dog food or treats. This food totally agrees with him. Chewy offers the best price and delivers the food quickly.
Eh. Nothing Special

Neither my Shih Tzu nor my St. Bernard went crazy for this one. They are more excited about Stella & Chewy than this brand.
First time is a big hit!

I thought that I would try this after reading the ingredients and use it as a supplement to her food, which is top quality. She loves her original food, but this food drives her wild. She loves it. I add a little water and wait five minutes or less, and it is ready to go. Highly recommended.

My dogs liked this, but because they are used to eating rehydrated freeze dried food - wet and mushy when served- they had a bit of trouble with the crunch. Even adding water does not make this food soft. I like the ingredients. No junk vegetables or fillers of any kind so I could feed less.
World’s pickiest dog LOVES this!

I have tried all sorts of freeze-dried raw food. With all other attempts, my 145 lb. Great Dane often just walks away from the bowl. It’s been challenging to find tasty food that she isn’t allergic to that she will actually eat in order to keep weight on her. She loves this food! I am so grateful for this!
