There's much to see here. So take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about our wholesome real food and why you should feed your pets our raw feasts. We hope you enjoy our site and take a moment to drop us a line.
In just a few weeks of feeding our Nourished Pet raw feasts, you‘ll watch your pet make incredible transformations. Softer luxurious coat, brighter clearer eyes, smaller odorless stools, reduced allergies, stronger immune system for reduced medical issues and a friskier attitude to name just a few. Behavioral problems are often corrected with a healthy raw diet as well.
Raw prey is your carnivores natural diet and is necessary to avoid health issues. When wild cats and dogs were domesticated their digestive system did Not change. They were naturally raw prey eaters then, and still are today. When you feed them Nourished Pet, you are feeding their natural wild diet without the beastly chore of making it yourself. Just thaw, open and serve.
Additionally, your pets will require less raw food compared to kibble or cooked food and will receive a much higher level of nutrition while also reducing any expense.
All of our food is made from quality USDA inspected meat (mostly organic) and safely ground into nourishing feasts in Southern California. Our commercial Kitchen is FDA and CDFA approved and inspected regularly. We use fresh-frozen organ meat and wild caught quality raw sardines for added vitamins, minerals, and essential omega 3 fatty acids. Sardines also help to reduce inflammation. We use fermented raw goat milk whey in a few of our blends which contains natural enzymes, added protein and probiotics.
Making our food in small batches allows us to keep the raw ingredients at a safe cold temperature to assure freshness before they are quickly frozen. Real Raw Food without fillers as nature intended provides the nutrition their body's are designed for. It's simply quality fresh raw meat, organs and bones. NO HPP processing, preservatives, synthetic vitamins, steroids, potatoes, rice, grains, antibiotics, added hormones or garden vegetables.
Our Classic Blends are limited ingredient Meat, Organ and Bone. We use organically raised animals. The Chicken and Turkey blends have a touch of our fermented Raw Goat Milk Whey for added protein, natural probiotics and enzymes.

We use only non toxic containers to avoid contamination from plastic chemicals leaching into your pets food. (BPA-BSA) We do not use plastic labels or packaging. It would be a shame to contaminate the food with chemicals after we put such hard work into making it so healthy. Plastic has many good uses...just not touching our food or in our oceans. Staying Eco friendly to our planet is very important to us.

Absolutely Not! We would never put medicine in our food even though many other pet food company's do, then call it super food. Nourished Pet Raw Food mimics a natural wild diet using quality raw animal ingredients. Raw Meat, Organs and Bone are their natural super foods! We save the Pumpkin, Clay, Honey, Coconut oil and others to be used as medicine when medicine is occasionally needed. Not as everyday food and risk the possibility of building up a resistance to their powerful medicinal properties.
Take pumpkin for instance. It's the magical fruit that alleviates constipation or diarrhea! Pretty cool huh? Or coconut oil that heals skin conditions, minor injuries and can be used as an occasional supplement. Its filled with antibacterial, anti fungal and antiviral properties to correct many issues. We certainly don't want them eating medicine everyday do we?
Wholesome Raw Meat, Organs and Bones.
Real Food -No Substitutes
Feed Nourished Pet Raw Food and support your pets immune system as nature intended. Keep them Healthy Happy and Thriving!
Why is their raw food brown? Make sure you know what is in your pets food.
Simply Fresh Raw Meat, Organs and Bones quickly frozen to maintain its natural nutrients
Can your cat or dog absorb any nutritional value from garden vegetables? Have you ever had a coyote, wolf, bobcat or cougar steal vegetables from your garden? Probably not! For five years we had two wide open gardens on our property in Vista, Ca. We had several coyotes in and out of them regularly and they never touched any of our vegetables. They were only interested in gophers and bugs. That was enough proof that carnivores do not use vegetables for nutrition even when they're starving. We know reading the ingredients on a package that has a lot of "healthy for human" carrots, celery, beets and other veggies looks and sounds great. But if the nutrients are not bioavailable (absorbed by your pets), they are just high calorie fillers and sugars. We at Nourished Pet closely mimic nature with our blends of quality Meat, Organ and Bone. Did you know starches like potatoes and peas along with grains actually become sugar in your pets body? Its true. Recent reports are saying this is one of the reasons so many pets are diagnosed with diabetes and other related diseases. Unlike some animals, cats and dogs thrive on Animal Protein not carbohydrates. So if your tired of paying exorbitant prices for garden vegetables, potatoes, rice and grains in your pets food, give them Nourished Pet Raw Food and see them thrive.
RAW BONES & CHUNKS OF MEAT: These are a great alternative to vegetables and are super healthy for their teeth, gums, jaws and their digestive system. Only raw and never cooked, smoked or left in the sun to bake. Not too small so they could swallow it whole and not too big that they are overwhelmed by it. When your pet is new to a raw food diet, hold off a week or so until they have been fully transitioned to raw food before giving them bones. This way their system has time to "get their wild back" to digest and absorb them properly. When it comes to bones remember size matters. Please fit the bone to the pet. Chicken, duck and turkey necks are good for cats and most all dogs (not gulpers) where larger non-weight bearing bones are good for larger dogs. Weight bearing bones of large prey animals should only be used for recreation, not nutrition and always under supervision. Never leave your pets alone with bones.
If you still feel the need to supplement with vegetables and fruit, we highly recommend feeding them in a separate meal from our raw food so they absorb all of the nutrients from the raw meat, organ and bones properly. Also try to use lightly fermented vegetables so they will be received by the digestive system as beneficial and supply additional good bacteria.
LIVING GRASS: Munching on greens is very beneficial and necessary. There is a big difference between vegetation and garden vegetables. Vegetation like grass is filled with chlorophyll and natural plant enzymes that are absorbable where garden vegetables are starch and carbohydrates which become sugar in your pets body. Carnivores have a short digestive system (unlike humans) and the garden vegetables do not have time to ferment and become bio-available. Please provide your pets regular access to organic living-growing grasses, greens and sprouts to nibble at their leisure for a natural balance. It's important the greens provided are free from pesticides (especially glyphosate) or chemical fertilizers.
WATER: Always provide your pets with fresh spring or filtered water. Avoid any fluoride and chlorine treated water. You may notice with a raw diet they will drink less water and in turn your dogs will slobber less. That's a great benefit when you have a big dog like a Mastiff! Remember to also wash and rinse their water bowls with hot soapy water regularly.
We at Nourished Pet envision a world where all domestic animals are eating species appropriate raw diets and living healthy happy disease free lives. Thanks to the numerous articles and education from highly respected Veterinarians, Dr. Lisa A. Pierson and Dr. Karen Becker along with years of our own research we have learned that proper nutrition is the foundation for excellent health. It is also the best preventive medicine we can offer our animals. The further a species abandons natures intended diet, the more health problems are likely to develop. Nourished Pet Raw Food adheres to the basics and closely imitates a natural wild prey diet of whole uncontaminated quality animal meat, organ and bone. We do this while also respecting the animals by only utilizing humanely raised animals.
We will continue to pass on the knowledge we have learned on this life long journey pertaining to the importance and necessity
of a natural prey based diet for all carnivores. We will also honor our planet and leave the lightest possible ecological footprint on our precious earth while offering nutrient dense raw feasts.
Until we extend our circle of compassion to all living things, humanity will not find peace......Albert Shweitzer
Protein treats: Medium chunks of Muscle Meat, Chicken necks, Duck necks, Cut or Whole Turkey necks, Small Medium and Large Marrow bones, Whole Quail, Whole Chicken Hearts, Gizzards, Chopped Sardines and local Raw Goat Milk. Most of our treats are frozen and provided in their most natural form possible for the upmost health of your pets. Cats and dogs require the natural moisture in their food to help replace moisture they would normally get in the wild from the blood of their prey. The USDA animals we use come to us "dressed" (blood removed) and the amount left in the organ meat is substantially less than a prey animal in the wild. With that said, for human convenience, we will still provide a couple dried meat treats to make it easier for you on the go.
Non Protein Treats: Organically Grown Greens, Grasses, Sprouts, Pure Aloe Juice, Organic Pumpkin and natural Bentonite Clay.
**We are always looking for Eco Friendly, non toxic convenient ways to package our treats. If you have any suggestions to avoid using plastic, please let us know by sending a message below.
My family nicknamed me Elly May when I was a child because I often surrounded myself with animals. Saving wild injured and abandoned animals or just enjoying our domestic pets was how I spent a lot of my childhood. I learned at an early age how to quickly heal animals with natural methods and plenty of hands on experience. Not much has changed in all these years. I still care for and help as many less fortunate animals as possible everyday. And now I can help you help your pets thrive as well!
I began making home made raw food for my cats and dogs several years back because of increased vet visits. My senior cat developed allergies and other health issues for no apparent reason. Vet visits were becoming more frequent and expensive getting steroid injections, yeast meds, ear cleanings etc. I started thinking about our family pets when I was a child and remembering they were never sick or needed vet attention. They were always healthy and lived to ripe old ages. That's when it hit me that my parents fed them mostly raw meat, organs and bones along with some canned food just like the wild animals I had rescued. I immediately started researching and found Dr Lisa Pierson and Dr Karen Becker's websites and articles on the subject. (among others) What a wealth of knowledge these Veterinarians provided! With that I was off and running making raw food for my pets. Within a very short amount of time, my older cat didn't need injections or meds and was playing around like a kitten again. All of my pets were thriving and happy as could be. After much research, trial and error, I started making prey model feasts that have kept my animals happy and healthy for years now. I am so happy I have opened Nourished Pet Raw Food and am able to share a collection of feasts with all of you to help your domestic carnivores avoid disease and thrive.... not just survive.
You can find our nutrient packed Feasts & Treats in some local pet food stores, Farmers Markets and soon on this site. For several years we have been producing raw food for our pets with such great results we wanted to share them and let your pets receive the awesome health benefits too. We will also pass along the knowledge we have learned from this journey so your pets will thrive as ours do. Won't it be great to reduce trips to the vet and the dreadful costs? Your pets will thank you too!
