Transition Instructions

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
  • Step 5 (Day 10 and after): Serve 100% RAW

Always provide access to clean, fresh water.

  • Good value

    By on

    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.

  • 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.

  • Beef Nibs are great as treats!

    By on

    My dogs love these and I use them as training treats. Love the large bag and how small the nibs are. They last a while and have very minimal healthy ingredients.

  • Amazing product!

    By on

    I admit, I was a bit hesitant because I didn't think 'nibs' is an appropriate term for food. However, the short list of ingredients (all meat, bones, organs) really convinced me to give them a chance. I'm glad I did! The smell isn't the best, especially after you soak them in some hot water, but our dog really likes it. His poops have looked better in consistency and and size. The only thing is, we're not sure how much water to mix with the food. It can be fed dry, but we prefer to have some moisture in his food.

  • Can't Resist

    By on

    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.

    These were okay but they do no soften even after soaking them in very warm water. I like the patties better.

  • WOW! What an amazing dog food!

    By on

    Can only recommend this dog food. I have tried so many different kind of freeze dried dog foods, but his one is the best of them all. Especially for dogs with yeast problems, allergies and with pancreatitis. My dogs love it. Switching to this food was a breeze. Can only recommend. By the way - I don't get paid for saying this in any way. :-)

    I use this as a meal mixer for my Dane and he really loves it. I just wish it came in a bigger bag.
