Raw, Freeze-Dried, and Air Dried Diets

At Pet Country, we are huge supporters of feeding dogs and cats species appropriate raw food diets. We love to educate owners on the benefits of Raw Food Diets for their pets and we especially love to hear all of the fabulous feedback from customers on how raw pet food has changed their pets’ lives.

Your dog or cat is a carnivore and is designed to eat a diet consisting of raw meat, organ meat, bone, and a limited amount of fruits and vegetables. The benefits to a raw food diet include:

  • Raw Food Diets contain zero synthetic nutrients
  • Raw Food Diets contain live enzymes to aid with digestion
  • Raw Food Diets contain a proper moisture content, which is especially important for cats
  • Most available Raw Food Diets contain hormone and antibiotic-free meats, as well as organic fruits and vegetables.
  • Raw Food Diets help your pet maintain a healthy digestive tract and healthy teeth (a huge benefit of raw meaty bones).

We carry a selection of raw meats to help you create your own raw food diet as well as prepared raw food diets. In addition, we carry a selection of raw meaty bones, which include turkey necks, chicken necks, and recreational bones.

You will also find a selection of Freeze-Dried and Air Dried diets for dogs and cats, which can serve as a great alternative to a frozen raw food diet.
