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
Our German Shepherd pup comes to us after having raised an older GSD with digestive issues and having found that the raw diet was the only stabilizing force to give her health and vibrancy. Our pup, now a year and a half, has done really well on raw. In between her fresh raw meals, we always have her bowl full of the VE Turkey nibs, just in case she gets the munchies. She likes to nibble on a few before bed - which the vet said was actually a good thing so her tummy doesn't get to acidic overnight. It took us a while to figure out the right meat and brands to work with. We brought her to a Functional Medicine doc for humans that analyzed her and shared that she needed to eat a cooling diet asOur German Shepherd pup comes to us after having raised an older GSD with digestive issues and having found that the raw diet was the only stabilizing force to give her health and vibrancy.

These are small sized freeze dried kibble which my Shepherd prefers. She gobbled it down so four paws up on tasty. The bag says perfect for small breeds and I imagine the kibble size is the reason. However, that has me seeking out what may be recommended for large breeds.
Great Food for your Pups

We use this in addition to Only Natural Pet Max Meat. It’s great for cleaning their teeth and our pups absolutely love the flavor. Great thing about this is it requires no water to prepare.
Merry Noel loves her new food.

Have had trouble finding the right food for my Sheltie. Two different vets have done allergy tests and recommended special food for her. The last one, a Holistic vet recommended this product after her latest round of testing. She loves her new “raw” diet. She weighs about 26 pounds. I use a very small dish with about 1/4 cup of food topped with 1/2 can of of drained vegetables.
Negative ... this stuff is very expensive!!!!!

I grind these hard little nuggets in the blender to mix into the Honest Kitchen food because my pups got very bored with it. They love it!

My little girl loves it. Only negative is forgiving out the correct amount to feed her. The suggestions in the bag are off weights so I had to convert to tablespoons. Other than that, it’s great.

Opal (my 14 month old Great Dane) loved this treat! I’ve been trying to find a raw diet for her, but they are all SO expensive!
Great Treats for Hiking

I love these treats for reinforcing recalls and trail manners. They're not crumbly and don't melt in hot weather. They're pretty high value for my pups so they're reasonable reinforcers for things like tough recalls off of wildlife, etc.
