Feeding Instructions

Add as a topper, supplement with your current food or feed as a complete meal. Can be fed as is or rehydrated with warm water. After adding water let sit for a few minutes and then serve. Supplemental Feeding: 1 - 3 scoops per meal Complete Meal Feeding: tightly pack each scoop

  • 3 Ib pet . . . . . . . 1 scoop

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.

    This is a win for my cats and dog. They all go crazy for it. I rehdydrate it for them to give it a more mushy consistency. . I use it as supplemental feed and as a topper.

  • My lil fur baby likes it.

    My lil fur baby likes it. He's a senior cat, & this food topper (I mix it into his food) helps him to eat some canned food he might not necessarily want to eat otherwise.

  • this stuff is garbage

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    smells bad, looks bad, and my cat ran away from it. i bought the turkey patties from this company and she hates those too. i sprinkled this topper on a rehydrated patty to see if she might find it more appealing, but both products have a rancid odor and oxidized color. i want a refund!

  • Good food topper

    By on

    I use this to add some extra calories to my cat's low-calorie canned food. Both cats love it, as does the dog. The product color varies a bit each time. I got one batch that the cat wouldn't touch at all, so I returned that one (but that only happened once). The bag says "serving scoop included"; however, only the first bag (of five) I've purchased actually had a scoop in it. So if you get a scoop, save it!

  • Great for picky eaters!!

    By on

    My dog is super spoiled and will not eat his dry food on its own. He will starve himself because he would rather not eat at all then eat dry food on its own. I have tried broth, I have tried treats, I have even put cheese in there and they work sometimes but not all the time. Was also looking for a healthier addition to make him want the food and be healthier for him than cheese. He was starting to put on some weight. Anyways, This stuff is awesome!! I have been using it for a couple weeks now and he seems to even look forward to eating his food now. He never did that before. So glad I found this!! My picky eater is happy now and so is momma. Lol!!

  • works great

    By on

    My dog refused to eat. After trying probably around 25 different dog foods he will eat this on top of probably any dry food. Much less stress for me!

  • Picky eaters love this!

    By on

    When Chewy discontinued Fromme foods, which my 15 year old dog, with a delicate tummy tolerated, I tried a new dog food, that she refused to eat, and she was losing weight. I called Chewy and the rep suggested this topper. With the topper my dog has not refused her food, and eats it's eagerly! Kudos to the Chewy help line. Every time I've called, they have gone above and beyond. They are why I chose to stay with Chewy even though they stopped carrying Fromme products.
