Freeze dried raw diets are great. They’re a hassle free way to feed a balanced raw diet without having to chop up bloody guts and organs. They have a fantastic shelf life, an excellent retention of nutrients, and all you have to do is add fresh water.
As a product they seem expensive, but to defend a product such as this they’re also made from the right stuff. Many “premium” kibbles cost a huge amount when you consider they’re made from cheap grains and even cheaper by-products of those grains which will likely harm your pet over time. At least this product is formulated with a natural canine diet in mind, so even if you use this to supplement a cheaper kibble diet, it’s a very good thing.
The first four ingredients are the same thing – Turkey (including organs which is where most of the nutrients are). They state 80% of the product is from animal ingredients, which is great considering many kibbles can be 80% filler.
There isn’t anything bad in the food. Probiotics are included. Natural preservatives rather than nasty chemicals. Fruits, veggies, vitamins, minerals, and salmon oil as a quality inclusion for omega fatty acids.
Foods such as this are well worth adding to a diet, and if it’s expensive for you then use it as a topper or special dinner once every few days. It’s also worth rotating with their other formulas which use various meat ingredients – variety is always good.
