Archetype is the original raw dog and cat food diet from Wysong, and emulates the food canines and felines eat in the wild – the diet they are genetically programmed for. Wysong raw dog & cat food products are manufactured with a proprietary TNT (True Non-Thermal) technology, and are the safest, most genetically appropriate raw pet foods on the market. Archetype, first and foremost, is not heated above 118 degrees Fahrenheit – a True Non-Thermal freeze-dried raw product! These products are designed to achieve optimal nutrition that is beyond minimal regulatory standards for so-called “100% complete and balanced” diets.

Key Benefits
  • Suitable for all life stages dogs and cats!

    Good ingredients, but the cats won't touch it

    By on

    This product seemed really affordable and I was excited to try it with our cats. Neither are particularly picky, but they were not interested in eating this food. The food comes out in a weird combination of chunks and powder. The chunks are too hard for them to chew, but they won't eat the powder even when it's mixed with water into a gravy. The powder also ends up making a huge mess because they knock it around trying to get to the chunks. I won't be ordering it again.

    Nice addition to the other freeze dried foods

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    Wysong Archetype Chicken formula was accepted readily by my dogs. I feed mainly freeze dried food and recently bought some Wysong to try out. Both dogs like it and I will buy again when I renew my food supply. It smells good and has a lot of healthy supplements that I don't have to add in from my supply of supplements that I have on hand. Feeding is easy when I give Wysong Archetype Chicken. Bowls are clean and the dogs are satisfied. Bigger bags would be nice but the price is not bad and I could buy a few bags that would equal other brands for amount and price. I am happy with the new addition of Wysong foods.

    Super picky cat sort of likes it

    By on

    This came in my regular order of kitty litter and it managed to get under all the kitty litter. Consequently all the nuggets were smashed into a rough meal. On one hand it makes it easier to sprinkle over his food but we lost the ability to use it as a single treat. Not sure if I would order it again.

    Good healthy stuff

    By on

    Fizz loves this. It's real food but he thinks it's a treat, so all the better. Sometimes when he is a bit reluctant to eat something, I top dress it with Archetype, and down it all goes. Marigold, who is fussier, can live without it, but Fizz is all in on this. It's not cheap, but because it's such good stuff and because I am nuts-in-love with Fizz, I am willing to spend the money. Fizz has been an Archetype guy since he was a baby. (He's now 5, but more like the terrible 2's.) Oh yeah, Fizz and Marigold are both cats, but I'm guessing dogs would like this, too.

    My Cats Love This

    By on

    If my cats get finicky about their food I sprinkle this on top, add a little water and mix. The food then disappears!

    Cats like it!

    By on

    I have five cats, and not all of them eat this, but the two who do love it. They like it dry, but make sure you have plenty of water available. They are still transitioning to eating it, so I give it to them in small amounts. I have tried sprinkling it over their canned food, but the taste must be very different, and they don't eat it. I might try to transition to Wysong wet food, but all this transitioning is hard to do. For now, I will use it as a supplemental snack. They like the chunks, but much of this is already crushed. I'll figure some way of using it.

    Would be 5 stars if there were more in the bag for the money!

    By on

    I am a longtime buyer of Archetype burgers for my two Bichons, and I have been hoping for an option that did not require breaking up the burgers. I tried this product, and my dogs love it. The only downside is that there is so little in the bag. Please, Wysong, recommend a product for me with the taste of the burgers, but with the mix of this product that is so much easier to feed. I love your products, but need more volume!

    Healthy freeze dried food for dogs and cats

    By on

    Both my dog and cat love this food. The cat has difficulty breaking up large pieces so I do that for her. She doesn't like it wet but the dog does. It's expensive to feed as their only food so I use it as a topper for the dog and along with canned food for my cat. Great ingredients.
