Wicked Nutritious // Carnivore Delicious 

We humans love our dogs and cats and will believe virtually anything that makes owning a pet feasible. Done properly, owning a dog or cat can be an expensive proposition. ButWhether done well or poorly, food will be your biggest expense. The bad food news is that just five companies own over 900 brands of dog and cat food, collectively giving them the ability to target market every conceivable hot button any owner might have. For example; puppies need more calories and nutrients as a percentage of their body weight because they are growing, but they do not need “puppy” food once off mother’s milk. Yet the pet food industry will tell you your puppy needs puppy food and we want to feed our "babies" right. But here's the deal, today's pet foods are marketed as healthy products however, as a concession to the industry the FDA allows the use of parts from downed and diseased animals. Check the ingredient list on a package of commercial dog food and you’ll see the word "crude" in front of every nutrient. Using the word “Crude" gives pet food manufacturers the latitude to include things like hide and hair and call them protein. Though these ingredients do have a higher crude protein factor than muscle meat, muscle is more nutritious and bioavailable. This sleight-of-hand allows pet food producers to include cheap waste by-products that do not provide optimum nutrition, but look good on the label.

        I initially tried an assortment of commercial dog foods for my rescue, but there were no wet or dry foods that my dog could eat that delivered a healthy stool. So I set out to develop my own. Let me begin with this essential detail: Dogs will eat almost anything to stave off hunger or please their owners. Because of this, many people believe that what a dog will eat is what a dog should eat. But, inappropriate foods = inadequate nutrition, and dogs fed inappropriate foods (processed, carb-laden, plant-based) can appear healthy for years before showing signs of a degenerative condition. True science tells us that our canine pets are facultative carnivores, meaning that to maintain optimal health and wellness their diet needs to include the elements of whole herbivore prey; muscle, secreting organs and marrow bones, in the right proportions:

  • Muscle supplies protein and healthy fat.
  • Heart is rich in essential amino acids, potassium, phosphorus, iron, zinc and B-vitamins.
  • Secreting organs supply essential minerals and fatty acids.
  • Bone provides calcium to maintain strong bones.
  • Marrow is rich in collagen, glucosamine and iron to support healthy joints.

Our dogs' Gray Wolf cousins will feed on small game; beavers, hares or turkeys, when big game are scarce. But their prey of choice are hoofed-mammals called ungulates; i.e., sheep, elk and bison. It's believed that wild canines prey on ungulates instinctually because the muscle tissue of ungulates contains energy-storage molecules and chemical messengers called lipids that appear to treat and prevent chronic disease. In fact, the original canned dog food (Ken-L Ration) was mostly horse meat. 

        After more than four and a half years of feedings, RAwsome Meals have shown to be species-appropriate for dogs and cats. Even so, our meals are almost perfect because our human-grade production facility is not allowed to include the bacteria and microorganisms found in the digestive tract of whole prey that produce the fermentation needed to convert protein into amino acids, which when combined with a carnivore’s own digestive enzymes promote health and wellness in the form of a "healthy gut". To make our meals perfect, we recommend that owners add one of the following sources of fermentation:

  1. Fermentation: Add 1-2 Tbsp of raw apple cider vinegar with mother per lb. of RAwsome Meals.
  2. Fermentation + fiber: Add  1-2 Tbsps low-sodium fermented organic veggies per 1-lb. of RAwsome Meals.
  3. Fermentation from whole prey: Replace 1/8 ration (2 oz/lb.) w/whole prey per feeding of RAwsome Meals.
