To Feed as Primary Meal: Divide the daily amount listed into 2 daily servings.

Combination Feeding: If feeding in combination with dry food, replace each 1/4 cup of dry food with 1/4 cup of Make It Fresh. Note calories and adjust other food and snacks accordingly to maintain ideal weight.

Every dog is a little different, so optimal feeding amounts may vary by age, size, activity level, breed and environment. Please use feeding guidelines as an initial recommendation and adjust as needed.

Transition Instructions

The best way to transition onto a new food is to gradually introduce the food by mixing it with the old diet. This is particularly important when the new food is much tastier than the old, as is the case with Wellness. Mixing the food will allow the dog to acclimate to the new taste and not overindulge on the new food

When food transition is not an option, there are a few ways to ensure a good transition:

  • Feed multiple, smaller volume meals. This will decrease the likelihood of over-consumption and provide for a more consistent, firm stool. This is an especially good option for puppies and senior dogs.

  • Add clean warm water to the food to help soften it.

  • Add a digestive aid such a boiled brown rice or sugar-free canned pumpkin

  • Did not like this product

    By on

    Product had a weird smell, one customer said chicken broth, I felt that too. It took a lot longer than 5 minutes to turn. It was like soup for 10 - 15 minutes. I just followed the instructions; which looked like 1 cup to 1 cup of water. I ended up waiting almost 30 minutes before feeding. My Luna eats anything, but she didn't get excited about it like the refrigerated food.

  • Easiest preparation of raw food

    By on

    This product makes preparation of raw food for our dogs very easy. Pricewise it's also a pretty good value compared to other freeze or air-dried raw foods. The dogs seem to like the flavor. Our dog Mack has pancreatitis so he gets homemade super low-fat food. I mix up some of the Truefood for our other dog Nisse's meal, and use some as a tasty topper for Mack's food. The Lamb and Salmon flavors are appropriate for low-fat diets. I took off one star because the Trufoods tend to be on the dusty side, with very few "chunks", unlike the photo on the package. The food consistency, when rehydrated, is more like mashed potatoes.

  • My dogs love it!

    By on

    Have a Cavalier KC, Pekingese and Chihuahua. They can be fussy eaters, but all enjoy it. Very easy to prepare. Just start your teapot with water, once hot then add to food. Stir and wait 5-10 minutes. Dogs get antsy waiting for it to hydrate and cool down, but if you keep everyone busy then the time goes by quickly. Glad we tried it. Also, the dogs transitioned very well without upset tummies!

  • Unsure about it

    By on

    Although my 2 little dogs love this lamb variety, they now have a bowel movement 3-4 times a day instead of twice. Sweet potato is the second ingredient which could be the case but with the turkey they do not experience the same condition.

  • Finally - my dog likes this one.

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    I have tried almost all the freeze dried raw products and this brand is the first one that our Miniature Schnauzer will eat. He likes all the flavors which is great. He gets 1/2 cup for dinner and a one pound bag lasts about a week. I did have to get another bowl for him as this product gets a little sticky and it was sticking into the corners of his bowl. I found a rounded bowl with no corners and now he's able to get all the food.

  • Very disappointed!

    By on

    My 17 month old puppy is on wellness core and so I decided to try this food out to supplement the dry kibble. He eats anything and would not eat this food. I was also extremely disappointed in the quality. It is very granular, not chunky and smells like chicken bullion. When I added water as instructed it turned to mush. Not a good product at all. I have my other dog on Bravo dehydrated and that is an excellent food choice. Would not waste time or money on this product.

  • Bowl is licked clean!

    By on

    I have a picky Labrador (weird, right?) with a sensitive stomach. He was bored of all of the other foods he tried and wouldn’t finish his meals. That meant that the remaining uneaten food would sit in his bowl for hours after it was served, which is a big no-no for raw food. Enter Wellness Trufood Raw Freeze Dried food. With good ingredients and a nice variety of flavors, I figured I’d give this food a try. My dog finally gets excited about meal time with this food! It takes 5 minutes to absorb water that you mix into it - and it’s the longest 5 minutes of his day because of the anticipation of the meal (it’s okay though, I utilize this opportunity to do a quick training session since it is during I have a picky Labrador (weird, right?) with a sensitive stomach.

It takes 5 minutes to absorb water that you mix into it - and it’s the longest 5 minutes of his day because of the anticipation of the meal (it’s okay though, I utilize this opportunity to do a quick training session since it is during this time that I have his complete attention and focus). I can mix in other food or anything that I need him to eat (prescription or otherwise non-appealing to the tastebuds) and he will still finish everything and lick the bowl clean. This is an easy way to keep up with a raw diet even while traveling, since all you need is water and a stirring utensil. I will also add that since he has been eating this food, my dog’s coat has been extremely shiny, soft, and best of all, he barely sheds during the times of the year when dogs typically shed heavily. People always comment on how healthy and beautiful his coat looks and I attribute this to his raw food from Wellness. … more

  • Raw Food For Your Pup

    By on

    Good raw food for your pup. Really like that it has ingredients in it not normally found in dog food (chickpeas, apples). *We received this product for free in exchange for our honest opinion.

  • Great food will continue to buy!

    By on

    My dog loves Trufood. I have my dog on Wellness Core and I supplement trufood fresh as a topping. I use a tablespoon add a little filtered water and it makes a gravy base and she loves it.

  • Great to mix with dried food

    By on

    My husky is a picky eater and has an extremely sensitive stomach. I use wellness core and mix a spoonful of this with water. She licks the whole bowl dry. Has never had diarrhea and helps her finish all her meals. The quality of Wellness dog food is amazing.
