Ready for the next level? Here's where we go more in depth into other aspects of raw feeding. As always, contact us with questions or concerns. Our team is ready to help.

Rotating proteins

Once you have completed your transition onto a raw food diet, you need to start rotating proteins. In a perfect world, your pet would get a mix of red meat, white meat and fish, rotated daily, weekly, or somewhere in between. This to have a balanced diet over time and to lessen or avoid developing intolerances to certain proteins.

Vegetable content

A small amount of veggies is encouraged in a raw diet. Many complete recipes already contain 10-20% vegetation or have a meat and vegetable option separate that you can mix on your own.

Cats do not require vegetables but can process the 2-5% vegetable content found in some brands.

Bone and calcium

Most diets and brands contain ground bone. This is an essential part of your pet's nutrition as it contains the necessary calcium they need.

Not every meal needs to contain bone, but it is an essential part of your pet's diet.

In some cases, an animal may need less or no ground bone in their diet. In this case we encourage feeding a diet that includes eggshell calcium or a calcium supplement.

Look out for the red bone badge on the products that contain it.


Buying in bulk

We carry several bulk options, like boxes with 44x 1/2lb patties or large 10lb brick/pillow style packages that you can portion yourself and freeze again. This is a great option for multi-pet households or those with large breeds.

Bones for chewing

An important part of your pet's diet and oral hygiene. Save vet visits by implementing bones into your pet's diet. There are two kinds of bones:

Recreational/entertainment bones 

  • cleans teeth naturally
  • satisfies the need to chew
  • marrow bones, knuckle bones, rib bones
  • feed weekly
  • do not reduce daily amount of food when feeding

Meaty/meal bones

  • part of their daily food portion
  • also cleans teeth, albeit less effectively than recreational bones
  • necks, wings, carcasses, whole fish, tails
  • consumed entirely: mostly meat, cartilage, sinew, softer bone
  • reduce daily amount of ground raw as needed
  • great for cats!

Bones are not to be taken lightly. Always supervise your pet when feeding bones. Choose bones larger than your pet's mouth. For multiple chewing sessions, put the bone back in the fridge for up to three days.

Our friends at Red Dog Blue Kat have a wonderful guide on bones and bone safety. Let them help you find the perfect bone for your pet by using their guide.


There are many supplements on the market and many options to add to your pet's meals. There are a few that we do recommend adding to your pet's diet and many more that depend on age, health, and conditions of an individual pet.

Omega 3, 6, 9
Should be added to a raw food diet, especially for puppies and kittens. Whether a fish oil, plant-based oil, or mix, make sure that you find a product that contains all three.
Something every human and animal should have in their diet, due to the exposure and stress on the body on a daily basis. Keeping the gut in optimal health is one of the keys to overall health. 80% of your pet's immune response is in their digestive system.
A powder or liquid probiotic is recommended over yoghurt or other dairy products.
A multivitamin is recommended if your pet is not getting a fully diet through rotation or if there are limitations to the proteins and vegetables they can consume.

We could go on forever. There are many more supplements and aids to specific illnesses and conditions. Our team is well-versed in the supplements world and how it can help your pet's life.
