Our chicken comes from a family-owned farm in the northwest. The chickens roam freely. You can find them happily soaking up the sunshine, taking dust baths in the fields, and returning to the spacious indoor area to roost at night. They are vegetarian, fed a biologically appropriate diet, provided fresh water, and provided enrichment activities. The produce is sourced from the Pacific Northwest, and our goat milk comes from a family farm in Gaston, Oregon. Steve’s Real Food is committed to working with family farms that share our belief in sustainable farming free from added hormones, antibiotics, and pesticides. Learn more about our ingredients.

How to Feed Our Freeze-Dried Raw Food for Dogs and Cats

If you are transitioning to raw, we suggest transitioning over a 1-2 week period. Check out our transitioning guide here for more information and tips for switching over your pets.

Start with a clean, airtight container and portion your pet’s daily feeding amount into it. If feeding multiple times a day, divide the recommended daily feeding amount by number of feedings per day.

Add ¾ cup of WARM water per every 1 cup of food. Stir to ensure even hydration. Let the liquid absorb into the food for a minimum of 10 minutes.

Once fully rehydrated, serve it to your pet on a clean dish. Thoroughly wash your hands and sanitize all areas that come into contact with the raw food to promote a safe feeding environment.

How Much to Feed

Each four-legged friend will metabolize food differently based on their activity level, breed, age, etc. Use our feeding calculator as a starting point for your pet, and adjust the feeding amount as necessary to help your pet achieve an ideal body weight.

Safe Handling Raw Pet Food

Treat raw pet food with the same care as handling raw meat for your consumption. Always wash your hands, pet bowls, and any surfaces that come into contact with the raw food.

1 review for Freeze-Dried Raw Dog Food Chicken Recipe

  1. Emily

    My dog LOVES this! I can’t believe how much he has changed his relationship to food because of it. He use to spit his kibble everywhere and would eat a little bit at a time. He was unfocused when eating and was often looking around (he’s a goof ball). But now he is focused on eating and cleans his bowl. He licks his lips for about 5 minutes after he’s eaten. We stretched it a bit by combining it with his normal kibble too. It’s really heart warming to see how much he loves his food and know its way healthier for him too. Happy dog, happy human 🙂
