Natural Raw Pet Food Delivery

Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by Darwin’s Natural Pet Products. However, I will always try to offer my readers great product selections. Your trust is very appreciated, and never taken for granted. ~Tonya, Dexter and Nutter

Don’t let a busy schedule stand in the way of feeding your pet a healthy raw pet food diet. I often hear pet parents say they can’t feed their pets a species-appropriate diet because they don’t have time to make a balanced raw diet at home. Or that their pet store does not carry raw pet food. But luckily for health-conscious pet parents, Darwin’s Natural Pet Products offers Dog and Cat Food Delivery right to your door! Darwin’s pet food convenient delivery service – a subscription-style pet food delivery service.

But let me back up a little and tell you why I’m a fan of Darwin’s Natural Pet Products and why their brand is part of both Dexter’s and Nutter’s food rotation.

Pet Food Made with Human Grade and Grain-Free Ingredients

Darwin’s starts with human-grade ingredients—nothing you would find on the cutting room floor or in a large garbage bin waiting to be turned into “pet feed.” No, all ingredients are human-grade, high-quality, and fresh. All of Darwin’s recipes are grain-free and fully balanced to meet the needs of your carnivore.

Humane grade ingredients
Humane grade ingredients

Antibiotic- and Hormone-Free Options

I believe in feeding Dexter and Nutter antibiotic- and hormone-free meats in their daily food. This is actually a deal breaker for me when choosing a raw dog or cat food. Darwin’s Natural Selections line uses meat from animals that are cage-free (free-roaming) or pasture raised, grass-fed, and free of steroids, antibiotics, or artificial growth hormones. They even visit every farm that raises the animals used in their meals to ensure they employ good farming practices and treat both their animals and employees with respect.

Raw Pet Food Made Fresh

At Darwin’s, the food is made fresh, then immediately frozen in vacuum-sealed packages to preserve quality and nutrition naturally. Darwin’s takes pride in being the freshest in the market by delivering the food within 4-6 weeks from production! Darwin’s lists a manufacture date on each meal, instead of an expiration date.

Free Menu Consultation and Prescription Meals

If you are new to Darwin’s, raw food, or just don’t know where to start, Darwin’s offers a free menu consultation service. They also offer a HEALTHY prescription diet line. Intelligent Design™ Veterinary meals for dogs are specialized formulas designed to provide extra support to dogs facing certain health issues.

Freshly made dog and cat food

Darwin’s Pet Food Convenient Delivery Service

Darwin’s Pet Food not only offers an amazing raw pet diet, but they ship direct to consumers, eliminating any middleman. Darwin’s Natural Pet Products convenient delivery service is a subscription-style pet food delivery service.

Ready-to-Serve Raw Pet Food Meals

Remember, each ready-to-serve raw pet food meal is delivered 4-6 weeks from the manufacture date, so your pet’s food arrives fresh and dense with nutrients. Your pet’s food is shipped in insulated containers and packaged in an 8-ounce frozen, vacuum-sealed bag with an EZ-Peel tab in the corner, making it a breeze to open without a mess. All you do is simply thaw and serve a complete and balanced raw pet meal.

Raw Pet Food Delivery Service Schedule

Darwin’s tailors each pet food delivery schedule to meet the individual customer’s needs. All pets and families are different in their needs, which is why I recommend contacting Darwin’s to set up your pet’s raw pet food meal delivery plan. Your order can contain a mix of different meals with different proteins, so you can provide variety in your pet’s diet. If you would rather just test the waters, you can order Darwin’s special introductory offer.

Pet Food Delivery Changes

What’s really nice about Darwin’s is that you will receive an email reminder before each shipment and you can change or cancel your pet food delivery service at any time. Their customer service representatives will be happy to assist you.

As an added bonus to subscription members, Darwin’s offers a variety of raw bones and chews that you can add to your order. Grass-feed beef marrow bones, raw duck necks, green tripe, and even venison jerky treats. Your dog will be hopping for joy!

Benefits of Choosing Darwin’s Pet Food Convenient Delivery Service

Natural calming solutions for pets
Pet Remedy

There are many reasons why pets can be stressed out and as we all know, pets do not do well with change.  All pets do not show the same signs when it comes to stress and therefore they can be easy to overlook.

Often, it’s important to have a solution that will reduce stress and calm our kitties. Pet Remedy is such a solution.  Order Today.

Pet Remedy

Pet Remedy~There are many reasons why pets can be stressed out and as we all know, pets do not do well with change. So, whether it’s moving to a new house, a new pet moving in, a new family member moving in or more, our companions can easily get stressed out. All pets do not show the same signs when it comes to stress and therefore they can be easy to overlook. Excessive grooming is one of the most common signs, however loss of appetite, less interaction with family members, hiding, change in relationship with companion pets and aggression are other warning signs to look for. Often, it’s important to have a solution that will reduce stress and calm our kitties. Pet Remedy is such a solution. (1) Pet Remedy diffuser (1) 200ml calming spray.

Changing to a Raw Dog Food or Raw Cat Food Diet

Species Appropriate Diets and Pet Nutrition

How to Switch to a Raw Pet Food Brand from Dry Pet Food

Changing to a raw pet food diet

Disclaimer: This is a post is sponsored by Darwin’s Natural Pet Products. However, I will always offer my readers an unbiased and honest account of my experiences. Your trust is very appreciated, and never taken for granted. ~Tonya, Dexter and Nutter

I am so happy you are looking to switch your dog or cat from a dry, highly-processed pet food to a fresh, natural raw pet food diet. Yay! You should be extremely pleased with yourself that you are ready to make the leap. Your dog or cat’s health will improve dramatically after you change to a raw pet food, such as Darwin’s Natural Pet Products. But the big question is always, HOW. SLOWLY.

If your pet has been eating dry dog food for most of his life, his gut may not be in the best shape. But don’t worry, by switching to a raw dog or raw cat food, you will be working at restoring his gut microbiome, which is essential to good health.

Transitioning Your Dog to a Raw Dog Food Brand

Plan on transitioning your dog full time to raw over about 7-10 days. By changing your dog’s food from dry kibble to raw slowly, you will help prevent gastrointestinal upset. However, don’t be surprised if your dog’s stools change. You may even notice a little mucus coating as your dog goes through a detoxification and his body eliminates toxins he has built up over time. As your dog eats more fresh food, he will also start to utilize the nutrients and eventually his stools will likely become firmer and smaller. This is all good!

  • Raw dog food should be served at room or body temperature
  • Days 1-3: Start your dog’s transition with a 75/25 split of his old food and new food.
  • Days 4-5: Increase the raw food to a 50/50 split.
  • Days 6-7: Increase the raw food to a 25/75 split.
  • Day 8: You did it! 100% raw.

Transitioning Your Cat to a Raw Cat Food Brand

Oh, the finicky cat! It’s not necessarily that your cat is finicky; it’s just that cats can be leery of change, especially when their cat food is changing. But changing your cat from a dry cat food or a canned cat food to a raw cat food diet is worth the time and effort it may take.

No More Free-Feeding Cats

If your cat is used to having a bowl of food available 24/7, that’s the first thing to change. Start with four regular feeding times per day. Place your cat’s current food down for about 30 minutes, then remove what he doesn’t eat until his next feeding. Be patient with your kitty. However, it’s important to realize that cats will starve themselves, so do not allow more than 24 hours in between meals.

Once you have established a cat feeding schedule, add about ½ tablespoon of the raw cat food to your cat’s current food. At this point, you just want your cat to start getting accustomed to the taste, smell and texture of the food. Just like raw dog food, the food should be at room temperature, not cold. If your cat refuses, add even less raw with your cat’s regular food.

Once your cat is eating his raw and dry cat food, very gradually increase the amount of raw and decrease the dry. SLOWLY. You can expect this transition to take about four weeks. If your cat is eating a mix of raw and kibble, but not quite making the 100% switch, that’s okay. Just keep going, but a bit slower. Your patience will be worth it in the end!

Pro Tip from Darwin’s Natural Pet Products“Feed you cat on a small plate. Put their usual food in the middle and dab half moon shapes of Darwin’s around the lip of the plate. The cat will eat it. We don’t know why, It has zero scientific backup, but has worked for most customers in the past.”

Transitioning Tips, Concerns and Reminders

  • Raw pet food should be served at body or room temperature. To achieve this, stir in a little warm water.
  • Most prepared raw diets can be lightly cooked (raw), which can help during the transition period. Once transitioned, lessen the cooking to get back to raw.
Transitioning your dog or cat to a raw pet food diet. A species appropriate raw pet food diet is a great way to provide your pet optimal health. #raisingyourpetsnaturally
Lightly cook raw pet food
  • Use a flat plate to feed your cat.
  • Not all pets tolerate a raw pet food diet. Some pets have a weakened immune system and they cannot process raw food. In this case, consider lightly cooking a prepared raw or a home-cooked diet.
  • If you are concerned, speak to a holistic vet specializing in fresh diets.
  • Be patient, but don’t starve your cat.  Cats must eat every 24 hours.

Once you have successfully switched your dog or cat from a dry pet food to a fresh, raw pet food brand, you should start to see your pet’s health improve. His coat will likely get shiny, his energy will improve, and he will be so happy he is eating a fresh and healthy pet food. But don’t stop at one protein source; it’s important to rotate proteins and other ingredients to ensure optimal health and nutrition. More on that topic soon!

Darwin’s Raw Dog Food

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored review. However, I will always offer my readers an unbiased and honest account of my experiences. Your trust is very appreciated, and never taken for granted. ~Tonya, Dexter and Nutter

From the beginning of my 20-year career in dog behavior, I have been asked, “What is the best dog food?” Over the years, my answer has remained the same: “It depends.” Truly, finding the best dog food for your dog depends on a lot of factors. Are you looking for the best dog food for skin allergies, homemade dog food recipes, raw dog food recipes, or a prepared holistic pet food?

When people ask me what the best dry dog food is, I basically cringe. I get it. I know some people are always going to feed a dry dog food, but I don’t think a dry pet food is the healthiest option for your dog and certainly not for your cat. Dry pet food is heavily processed at high heat, removing all the moisture and goodness from the food. Fresh food, whether from a balanced home-cooked diet, balanced home-prepared raw, raw pet food company, or home-cooked pet food company will always provide a fresher, healthier diet.

When people ask me for the best dog food, I assume they want to feed their dogs a species-appropriate, high-quality dog food. I personally look for several things when evaluating the quality of a dog food. In a good dog food, I’m looking for meat, meat, and more meat. I shoot for 70% or more meat in Dexter‘s diet. I look for meats free of antibiotics and hormones. The remaining portion of Dexter’s food can be healthy fruits and vegetables, and I’m not opposed to healthy grains or carbohydrates in small quantities. Ideally, I look for ingredients that are organic, human-grade, and sourced in a country with a good quality-control program.

Figuring out all the details when choosing a pet food brand can be time consuming, but Dexter is well worth the time. If you have visited Raising Your Pets Naturally in the past, you probably know that I home-cook for Dexter almost exclusively. However, I do occasionally recommend and use great dog food brands, especially when traveling. Darwin’s Pet Products is one of those brands.

Natural raw diet dog food

I’m a big fan of a raw-food dog diet. However, it’s not for every person, and it’s not for every dog. Dexter is one of these dogs. With Dexter’s neurological condition and weakened immune system, he does not tolerate a fresh raw diet very well; he tends to get the scoots. However, Darwin’s raw dog food can be gently cooked “rare” (i.e., cooking the meat, but not the ground bones). This is what I do when feeding Darwin’s to Dexter, and he does great, with no digestion issues.

Gently Cooked Dog Food

Does Dexter like Darwin’s Natural Pet Products? Seriously? You have to ask? Dexter is a huge fan. He gobbles up every last morsel and looks at me for seconds. The question should be whether or not I like a particular pet food brand. I have been a fan of Darwin’s Natural Pet Products for a few years, and even rotate their cat food into Nutter The Cat‘s diet.

Gobbled every last bit

Darwin’s raw dog food is 75% meat, 25% vegetables, and under 1% trace minerals and vitamins. No guesswork on how much meat your dog is getting. And it’s not low-quality meat that you might find in a rendering plant or low-quality pet food manufacturing facility. Darwin’s offers two dog food lines: Natural Selections and ZooLogics. Their Natural Selections line contains high-quality, antibiotic- and hormone-free meats from New Zealand, Australia, and the USA, with organic vegetables. Their ZooLogics line is a more economical line of raw dog food, made with conventionally-grown meats and vegetables from the same farms that supply your supermarket.

Currently, Darwin’s offers raw dog food made with chicken, duck, turkey, beef, or lamb. Darwin’s eliminates the middle-man by shipping directly to the customer. They even include a pre-paid return label so you can return the special insulated shipping container back to Darwin’s. If you live in the Seattle and Portland Metropolitan Areas, you receive free home delivery!

Darwin’s raw dog food is super simple to feed. Each 8-ounce frozen, vacuum-sealed bag has an EZ Peel tab in the corner, making it a breeze to open without a mess. They also provide a nice container with a lid to store any unused food. Frozen food can last at least six months when kept frozen. Once defrosted, keep the raw pet food in the refrigerator for up to two days.

Darwin’s Natural Pet Products

The first step in our transition was to thaw two packages of the raw Natural Selections turkey. This was easy—I just placed a block in the handy container provided, and popped it into the refrigerator for the day. The next day, I gently cooked Dexter’s food and allowed it to cool. Because Dexter is used to a variety of foods, I was able to quickly transition him to test out Darwin’s gently cooked dog food. I started with a 50/50 mix of his current food and Darwin’s.

Darwin’s Raw Cat Food Review

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post. However, I will always try to offer my readers great product selections. Your trust is very appreciated, and never taken for granted. ~Tonya, Dexter and Nutter

I spend a lot of time researching the best natural pet products, including looking for the best pet food for my dog and cat. There is no single answer to the age-old question, “What is the best cat food?” However, there are a few key components that you can use to evaluate when you are looking for the best cat food brands.

First and foremost, cats are obligate carnivores. Obligate carnivores are animals that must eat meat in order to thrive. The main source of their nutrients should come from meat—they can eat a small portion of healthy fruits and vegetables, but meat should be the main ingredient. I think if you are reading this post on the best food for a cat, you are hoping to feed your feline a species-appropriate diet so that he may thrive, not just survive.

Real Meat!

If you have visited Raising Your Pets Naturally previously, you probably already know that I believe in a fresh and antibiotic- and hormone-free diet for my pets. Nutter The Cat eats a variety of healthy and natural cat foods, including a home-cooked cat food, high-quality canned cat food, and a freeze-dried raw cat food. I also believe in regularly rotating my pet’s meals to ensure they receive a variety of foods and nutrients. As long as their food fits into my personal quality control, I feel comfortable feeding new brands and flavors.

I’ve been a Darwin’s Pet Products fan for a few years now. The reasons are pretty clear once you dive into the company and their product lines. So, let’s get to it!

When I’m feeding my pets, I look for quality ingredients first. In the case of looking for a raw cat food, I want meat, meat, and more meat! Okay, the same goes when I’m feeding Dexter The Dog. Darwin’s raw cat food is a 98% meat, 2% trace minerals, vitamins, and marine oils. No guesswork on how much meat your cat is getting. And it’s not low-quality meat that you might find in a rendering plant or low-quality pet food manufacturing facility; it’s high-quality, antibiotic- and hormone-free meats from the United States. All of the ingredients used are USDA-certified, human-grade ingredients from the United States and Australia.

This IS the meat used at Darwin’s Pet Products

Currently, Darwin’s offers a raw chicken, duck, or turkey cat food. Darwin’s ships directly to the customer, eliminating the middleman. They even include a pre-paid return label so you can return the special insulated shipping container back to Darwin’s. If you live in the Seattle and Portland Metropolitan Areas, you receive free home delivery!

Darwin’s raw cat food is super simple to feed. Each 8-ounce frozen, vacuum-sealed bag has an EZ Peel tab in the corner, making it a breeze to open without a mess. They also provide a nice container with a lid to store any unused food. Frozen food can last at least six months when kept frozen. Once defrosted, keep the raw pet food in the refrigerator for up to two days.

Natural Raw Cat Food

The first step in our transition was to thaw a package of the raw duck cat food. This was easy—I just placed a block in the handy container provided, and popped it into the refrigerator for the day. The next morning, it was thawed and ready to go. Because Nutter is used to a variety of foods, I was able to quickly transition him to test out Darwin’s raw cat food. I started with a 50/50 mix of his current food and Darwin’s. He’s usually pretty easy to adjust, and this was once again the case. I do recommend feeding all foods at room or body temperature to help in digestion.

By day three, Nutter was happily eating his Darwin’s raw cat food 100% and licking the bowl clean. Obviously, cleaning your pet’s food dish after each meal is recommended to ensure cleanliness.
