ChewDatFoods?

Hi all,


Has anyone heard of ChewDatFoods in the Northern Virginia area? I just reached out to the owner and asked what the percentages were: "Our Complete Dog Original Blend is made from 20% Organs, 10% Fruit, 10% Vegetables and 57% meat with bones. The remaining 3% is made up of items such as Ginger root, Cloves, Organic Kelp, Turmeric and such."


From looking online, it looks like its recommended to have 80% meat/bones, 10% fruit/veg and 10% organ. How much of an issue is this delta? Also, I'm waiting on a response regarding where the meat is sourced from.


Curious if anyone has any insight here.


They charge 2.25/lb and the food blend is already prepared.



Thanks!

Not sure why I didn't think of this earlier...I can just add chicken necks or other RMB in order to increase the ratio, so the percentages are a non issue.


Also, here's a link for anyone interested in checking them out: https://www.chewdatfoods.com/complete-meals-for-dogs


Their ingredient list seems legit. Doesn't seem like they would be using deceased animal carcasses or anything like that since their ingredients are so specific, right?

Response: "All of our meats, as well as our fruits and vegetables, are purchased through local restaurant suppliers and human grade distributors.* We use only products that we would use in preparing our own food"

So I guess this thread is just to inform everyone that chewdatfoods is a great option for raw feeding if you're in Virginia Maryland or Pennsylvania.

Here's to answering my own questions
