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 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. Find out more about the home prepared raw diet.

A traditional favourite of the working dog diet. Once your dog 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. 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.
