Darwin Raw

I have a 15 mth old female Shepherd and an 11 yr old male Siberian Husky with bad arthritis. I have heard that a raw diet will help older, arthritic dogs. I am considering the Darwin Raw due to the fact I can order in bulk with a bit of a discount and they ship right to your door. Has anyone tried this brand. They are based out of Washington state which makes it convenient for me in Northern California. Everything I have read so far has been positive.

I used to feed Darwin's.

It was an OK food, certainly better than kibble, but it is 30% veg.

That meant my GSD had to eat a lot of it to get what he needed, and it still was not enough. He was eating 3 to 4 pounds a day and he was too thin.
Also, it contained a lot of sweet potato and beets, which had lots of sugar. His poops were inconsistent, many times too soft.
I switched to My Pet Carnivore and never looked back. He has never looked better, nor had better stools, in his life.


Reelraw is good, too, and they ship free if you order in 50 lb increments.

Thank you Sunflower, I checked out Reel Raw Dog and really liked what I saw. I will be placing an order with them soon. I have been wanting to feed raw for some time now but I needed help with a few things and Reel Raw Dog seems to take care of everything for me. :-)

My pleasure.
Don't feel limited to what their website says. Alissa is wonderful and they can customize your order whichever way you want it. All you have to do is e-mail her. She is very good at replying quickly.
The food comes well packaged and still frozen.
