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 eat a natural diet and are offered vegetarian feed, provided fresh water, and provided enrichment activities. 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 you are transitioning to raw, we suggest doing it over 1-2 weeks. Check out our transitioning guide here for more information and tips for switching your pets to a raw diet.

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. Alexandra Blakley

    My 4 cats LOVE Steve’s Quest cat food so much! I rotate through Beef, Pork, and Chicken. The freeze dried variety is perfect for when I’m in a pinch and didn’t get a chance to thaw raw for them, as a treat, or dry as a topper to help transition a cat from dry kibble to a raw diet. These little bite sized pieces easily rehydrate and turn into a great wet food texture and the consistency can be customized with more water.

  5. Taylor Brower

    These are amazing to rehydrate and give to your picky kitty! My kitten has always been picky when it comes to something new but I can shake this bag and she comes running!

  6. Natalie

    We adopted a couple kitties and wanted to feed them a nutritionally balanced diet! We turned straight to Steve’s after our pups have been on them for a year+. The kitties LOVED the chicken flavor!

  7. Jess

    Adding quest freeze dried food has made my cats super excited for meals. The pickiest of the two is finally eating her whole meal in one sitting

  8. Alexis Shields

    So glad there’s so many protein options for the cats that cannot have certain proteins. And having the freeze dried makes it super convenient for raw feeding!

  9. Jackie

    Prior to feeding my cat Steve’s quest food, she was never motivated during mealtime. My cousin introduced me to this brand and it has made such an improvement to her health. I also noticed she drinks less water now compared to before the diet change.
    Crumbling the pieces prior to adding water makes hydration easier and quicker.

  11. Ella Day

    My cat is obsessed with this! It’s very palatable. It’s also good for really high value treats for dogs!! This is such a great option for picky cats. It’s nice to rotate proteins too!

    Chicken is a household staple for us! This flavor is perfect for everyone, including my picky eaters

  14. Taylor E

    A great alternative to kibble! This is a great way to add real food to a cats diet- especially a picky cat. Also great as treats!

  15. Kelly

    All it takes is look at the ingredients in your average commercial diet for kittens and cats and you will start wincing if you even look at some of the ingredients on the list. This I know for sure if you continue to feed an average cheap cat food on the market today especially dry kibble, your cat won’t live long or may life but suffer. I see so many cats diabetic and lethargic from poor diet as well as affects their immune system. My cat is family to me and want what’s best for her especially after her rough start coming from a shelter where I adopted her and going through several respiratory viral issues. I have been feeding this a short time now and I was concerned at first of the transition from her wet food ( I never feed dry if I can avoid its full of carbs and molds) to Steve’s prey freeze dried and low and behold I put a little of the Steve’s freeze dried chicken nuggets down with her fancy feast wet kitten food and to my surprise she left the fancy feast wet food! I am so very happy and pleased beyond measure that I know my beloved family member my cat is eating an appropriate species diet! Thank you so much for what you do for these precious animals! I am forever greatful!
