“Raw” Kibble

I went to Wag N Wash today to pick up my special order K9 Cravings which is a commercial raw dog food made in Baltimore. I was excited to pick up samples of a couple of new products from Stella & Chewy’s, a reputable company that makes and sells raw dog food.

I’ve been wondering how you can have “raw coated kibble”. (It’s freeze dried.) I was expecting a premium dog food that we might use for foster pups in rescue, but its filled with PEAS. Ingredient list begins with – beef and lamb meal.

Then chickPEAS, PEAS, salmon meal, LENTILS, PEA protein, lamb fat, sunflower oil, beef heart, beef liver.

It continues with good ingredients, but all the peas make me very nervous since there seems to be a link between taurine deficiency and peas in grain free dog foods and dogs being diagnosed with heart disease.

The smaller bags of freeze dried meal mixers are a great supplemental food (dog treat at our house). Their first ingredients are – chicken with ground bone, chicken liver, chicken gizzard, pumpkin seed, organic cranberries, organic spinach, organic broccoli, organic beets, organic carrots, organic squash.

What did I do with the “raw coated” dog food? Tossed it out in the yard and kept my five goldens busy “finding it” for a few minutes.

My pups eat a high quality breakfast and dinner, and, like me, eat junk food too.

We give our Ana 3 yr old golden Stella & Chewy’s Raw Beef diet. She has many food allergies and cannot any Poultry. We switched many times to find the best 100% American Made food, with the highest quality and one that does not sneak questionable ingredients in. We settled on Stella & Chewy’s and have been very happy for the last year. She is healthy, likes the food and it has not caused any allergic reactions.
