Raw Feeding

Yes, it is, according to BARF standards. We don’t use any fillers, grains, taste, or smell enhancements. Just raw meat or fish, bones, and organs from different animals – a wide variety is available to provide the rich menu. It is ready to eat – simply open the container.

No. An excessive amount of vitamins can be as much dangerous as a deficiency. You need to do a blood test at the vet’s office to detect if there is any vitamin deficiency, or if any elements have an incorrect ratio to each other. We don’t make prescription meals and don’t suggest any vitamins. In our opinion, balanced food which includes a variety of a protein source is healthy and don’t need any additions. When it comes to pet food – less is more.

Yes, we can help you to choose the right meal for your pet, but we don’t create the prescription food.  We recommend you to talk to your veterinarian or a certified nutritionist who can help you to accommodate the diet based on the individual needs and behavior of your pet. After getting the individual recipe, we will help you to create a custom meal, or choose the meal from our menu. 

It depends on different factors like activity level, metabolism, temperature, weather, etc. Please schedule a 30-min free consultation to discuss the needs of your pet.

Yes, because your pet gets water from their diet since meat is mostly made up of water.
