Back in September I posted about Raw Paws Pet Food contacting me to possibly do product reviews. Unfortunately not long after receiving the package Nandy got sick followed by Teddy’s surgery and long recovery. Fast forward and now things are about as normal around here as they ever will be so time to review!
Without much planning I got the duck out of the freezer on Friday. It’s a 5 lb chub of complete ground duck, which feeds the preferred raw ratio of 80% meat/muscle, 10% organ, and 10% bone:
The chub is tightly wrapped and sealed but the next morning I did notice some leaking from both ends. Not really a problem, just something to remember for future usage. It’s long so I had to use two plastic bags to completely cover it:
It was still firm after 48 hours in the refrigerator which made unwrapping it quite easy. I was nicely surprised by how little stuck in the ends of the wrapper:
Very easy to slice:
Teddy is on two meds so I just cut a small hole, dropped the pills in, and resealed:
Cricket is the fussiest eater of the three dogs but even she dug in after just a few seconds of sniffing:
Average daily meals for the three are between 3 and 4.5 lbs, so per pound cost of this for me is a bit high. The dogs loved it though and it’s nice to have a prepared meal without having to think about balance. It’s definitely something I would buy to keep on hand for a special treat or for when I’m out of town. I can also see this being convenient for traveling with dogs.
Thank you to Raw Paws for this opportunity, and a special thank you to Amy for her patience waiting for this to post. Of course the dogs are always appreciative:
