There's much to see here. So take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about us and our wonderful Raw food. We hope you enjoy our site and take a moment to drop us a line.
Does your Dog or Cat have allergies, chronic ear infections or other skin conditions? Behavioral problems? Did you know it‘s most likely from the food they are eating?
In just a few weeks of feeding our raw feasts, you can watch your pet make some incredible transformations. Softer luxurious coat, brighter clearer eyes, smaller odorless stools, reduced allergies, and a friskier attitude to name a few. 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 meat eaters then, and still are today. When you feed them Nourished Pet, you are feeding them their natural diet without the beastly fuss of doing it yourself. Just thaw, open and serve.
All of our food is made from quality USDA inspected meat (often organic) and safely blended 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 in our Superior blends. We also use fermented raw goat milk whey for natural enzymes, added protein and probiotics in a few of our blends.
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 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 preservatives, synthetic vitamins, steroids, potatoes, rice, grains, antibiotics, added hormones or garden vegetables.
Our Classic Blends are limited ingredient Meat, Organ and Bone. The poultry 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. 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. Staying Eco friendly to help save our planet is also 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 for minor problems. 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?

Simply Fresh Raw Food Quickly Frozen to maintain its natural nutrients
Tired of paying exorbitant prices for garden vegetables, potatoes, rice and grains in your pets food? Can they even absorb any nutritional value from them? Have you ever had a coyote or cougar steal vegetables from your garden? Nope. For five years we had two wide open gardens on our property in Vista, Ca. We had coyotes in & out of there regularly and they never touched any of our vegetables. That was excellent proof that carnivores do not use vegetables for nutrition even when they are starving. We know reading the ingredients on a package that has a lot of "healthy for human" kale, beets and other veggies looks great but if nutrients are not absorbed by your pets, they are just fillers. We closely mimic nature with our blends of quality Meat, Organ and Bone. Did you know starches like potatoes, grains and peas actually become sugar in your pets body? Recent reports are saying this is one of the reasons so many pets are being diagnosed with diabetes and other related diseases. Unlike some animals, cats and dogs thrive on Animal Protein NOT carbohydrates.
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.
We understand raw feeding can cut into the budget so if you still want to supplement with vegetables, we highly recommend feeding them in a separate meal from our raw food so they properly absorb all of the nutrients from the raw natural meat, organ and bones. Also strive to use lightly fermented vegetables so they will be received by the digestive system as beneficial.
LIVING GRASS: Munching on greens is very beneficial and necessary. 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.
RAW BONES & CHUNKS OF MEAT: These are a great alternative to vegetables and are super healthy for their teeth and gums. Only raw and never cooked or smoked or left in the sun to bake. Make sure the bone fits the pet. Not too small so they could swallow it whole and not too big that they are overwhelmed by it. If your pet is new to a raw food diet, hold off until they have been fully transitioned to only raw food before giving them bones. (1-2weeks) This way they wont' be getting too much bone in their new diet and possibly not able to digest them properly. When it comes to bones, size matters. You need to 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 or dental health and always under supervision. Never leave your pets alone with bones.
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 much 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, Dicks necks, Cut or Whole Turkey necks, Small Medium and Large Marrow bones, Whole Quail, Whole Chicken Hearts, Chopped poultry 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 provide a couple dried meat treats to make it easier on the go.
Non Protein Treats: Organically Grown Greens, Grasses, Sprouts, Pure Aloe Juice, Organic Pumpkin and natural Bentonite Clay powder.
**We are always looking for Eco Friendly, non toxic ways to package our treats. If you have any suggestions, 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 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!
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 horrific costs? Your pets will thank you too!
