How to feed the raw diet.
Our dogs and cats' bodies are designed to digest and thrive on raw meat. It's our job to create delicious, balanced and easy to serve recipes so that they can enjoy this delicious diet at home every day
Just choose an option and start your journey into the wonderful world of raw feeding!
Option 1: Complete and Balanced
Our personal favourite. Natures Menu Complete and Balanced raw meals and nuggets, which include the Country Hunter Raw Superfood, Complete and Balanced Raw Meals ,Complete and balanced nuggets and of course the Complete and Balanced Nuggets for Cats ranges are DEFRA, PFMA and veterinary approved to be a complete food, offering your pet their daily nutritional needs in one simple, easy to serve product.
No weighing, mixing or mess, just thaw and serve. Perfect for busy people who want to feed their dogs and cats the best!
Grain free and chicken free options are available for those with sensitive tummies.
Option 2: Mix and Match
If you want to make up meals yourself, our Just Meat complementary products are available in free-flow mince or blocks, and provide the meat content of your homemade raw meal. To this you will need to add our Blended Bite Size Fruit and Vegetable Nuggets or our baked Seriously Mighty Mixer. We recommend a ratio of 80% meat, 20% mighty mixer or 80% meat and 20% blended fruit and vegetable nuggets per meal.
Option 3: Create Your Own
If you would rather add your own fruit, veg and/ or grain to the just meat ranges we recommend that for dogs a meal should be made up of 60% meat, 20% blended vegetables and 20% non-starchy grain such as brown rice or oats and if you wish to go grain free you can give 80% meat and 20% blended fruit and vegetables.
Give a dog a bone...and the cat, too!
Once your pet has been on the raw diet for 3-4 weeks, we recommend that you also offer bones 1-3 times a week. They provide a fantastic natural source of nutrients as well as helping to keep teeth clean and provide a calming and super-satisfying chew session for your dog or cat. We also have a number of natural meaty chews such as beef trachea and beef paddywacks which offer many of the nutritional benefits of bones.
