Just Thaw, Open and Serve
In only a few weeks of feeding our raw feasts, you‘ll watch your pet make incredible transformations. Softer luxurious coat, brighter clearer eyes, smaller odorless stools, reduced allergies, stronger immune system and a friskier attitude. 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 closely mimicking their natural wild diet without the beastly chore of making it yourself. Simply thaw, open and serve.
Additionally, your pets will require less raw food compared to kibble or cooked food while receiving a much higher level of nutrition. Healthy and cost effective!
We use quality fresh USDA inspected meat (Mostly Organic and meant for humans) safely blended into nourishing feasts. Our kitchen is FDA and CDFA approved and inspected regularly.
When you feed a whole animal diet, your dogs, ferrets and cats have the ability to produce their own antioxidants. Whole animal carcasses support this with nutrients like vitamins A, C, E, and the minerals copper, zinc and selenium. We use fresh/frozen organ meat, organic free range egg yolks and wild caught quality raw sardines for added vitamins, minerals and essential omega 3 fatty acids. We feel this is much better and safer than using vitamin packs made in a lab from a foreign country. We also use femented raw goat milk whey for natural enzymes, added protein and probiotics in most 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. When you want only the best for your pets...feed them Nourished Pet Raw Food. Real Food without fillers as nature intended provides the nutrition their body's are designed for. You should never have to "decode" the ingredient list on your pets food. No HPP processing, preservatives, synthetic vitamin packs, steroids, potatoes, rice, grains, antibiotics, added hormones or garden vegetables.

We use containers that are lined with safe PLA instead of petroleum based substances. It makes perfect sense to avoid contamination from plastic chemicals such as BSA and BPA leaching into your pets food. 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 polluting our oceans. Staying Eco friendly to our planet is also very important to us.
Why is their raw food brown? Make sure you know exactly what's in your pets food.
Simply Fresh Raw Meat, Organs and Bones quickly frozen to maintain its natural nutrients
RAW BONES & CHUNKS OF MEAT: These are a great alternative to garden vegetables and are super healthy for their teeth, gums, jaws and 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 more 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 nutrients properly. Bones with marrow have a large amount of fat (good fat) which also takes time for their digestive system to adjust to.
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 should only be used for recreation, not nutrition and always under supervision. Never leave your pets alone with bones. It will get gooey and messy so provide a washable mat away from your nice carpet or outside in a (non pesticide treated) grass and dirt area. There are many beneficial probiotics in the grass and dirt they can also absorb.
When you supplement their diet with vegetables and fruit, we highly recommend fermented or 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. Only lightly fermented greens & vegetables will be received by the digestive system as beneficial and supply additional good bacteria. Similar to in the wild where they would probably get a small amount from the prey animals stomach contents.
LIVING GREENS: Munching on grass 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 nutrients where garden vegetables are starch and carbohydrates which are treated like sugar in your pets body. Carnivores have a short digestive system (unlike humans) and the garden vegetables do not have time to ferment. 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 typically 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! Wash and rinse their water bowls regularly.
BENTONITE CLAY: Clay is a great detox as well as a natural mineral supplement for your pets. Animals are seen eating it, bathing in it and rolling in it at their watering holes in the wild. Its been known to clean and detox along with providing many minerals needed for digestion and nutrition. We give our pets clay occasionally by sprinkling it on their food with a pepper shaker. We always add water and mix it in good so there is no chance of them inhaling it into their lungs. Not all clay is created equal so make sure you give them only pure clay from a reputable source. We use Redmond Clay.
Absolutely Not! We never include 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 at Nourished Pet recognize the benefits of natural medicine and remedies but certainly don't want your pets eating medicine everyday if it's not needed. Treat your pets as individuals and occasionally supplement each animal as an individual for a much better solution. Always rotate their protein source for balance as well.
We at Nourished Pet envision a world where all domestic animals are eating species appropriate raw diets (never kibble) 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. Hippocrates said "All Disease's Begin in the Gut". Feeding a proper raw diet will maintain good gut health and keep their immune system strong. Nourished Pet Raw Food adheres to the basics and closely imitates a natural wild prey diet of raw uncontaminated quality animal meat, organ and bone. We do this while also respecting the animals by only utilizing humanely raised animals.
We are thrilled 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 also honor our precious planet by leaving the lightest possible ecological footprint with our eco friendly containers. Offering nutrient dense raw feasts to our pets without contamination from petroleum based containers.
My family nicknamed me Elly May when I was a child because I often surrounded myself with animals. I drove my parents nuts with all the animals that followed me home. 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 got 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 quite expensive getting steroid injections, yeast meds, ear cleanings etc. (Not to mention the time off work and stress dragging them to the vet) 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 extremely healthy for years now. I am so thrilled to have opened Nourished Pet Raw Food and able to share a collection of feasts with all of you to help your domestic carnivores avoid disease and thrive.... not just survive.
