“This is Dr. Falconer. You know, I’ve always admired Steve Brown for being the pioneer that started the commercial raw pet food industry. He had to educate himself, amass a huge library of resources, and enter into an industry that was locked into kibble and canned food, period. Imagine the guts and brains it took to enter a multi-million dollar (at the time) “cash cow” that looked down its nose at the whole idea of frozen raw food!

But, he persisted, and actually set the stage for all the rest who continue to follow in his footsteps today. His diets are still keeping pets shiny and vital a couple of decades later, when most people accept raw food as a valid source of nutrition. I recommended them early on and I recommend them today. Steve’s is high quality, clean, balanced food, and you’ll see your dog or cat pick up a bright shine within a few weeks of feeding them this. Just remember to get into a rotation. Every 3-4 weeks, I recommend you change the protein source, and you can easily do this with Steve’s Real Food.”

Feed and Transitioning

If you’ve never fed raw before, you may be surprised as you watch your dog’s health improve while they transition to a healthier diet. When you feed your pet a raw diet, they will often require less food than if you were to feed them a kibble/grain-based diet, because the food has so much more nutritional value. There are a few factors that will affect the recommended amount to feed your pet, such as age, activity level, and weight goals. We use the bodyweight percentage rule, which estimates feeding amounts based on the weight of your pet.freeze-dry-bowl

For example, if you have a 50-pound adult dog, you’d feed them 2.5% of their body weight, which is 1.25 lb (daily).

50lbs x 2.5% = 1.25 lbs

You want to transition your pet to raw food slowly to prevent stomachaches and loose stools.  Start by mixing 1 part Steve’s with 3 parts of the food you are currently feeding.  Slowly increase the amount of Steve’s while reducing their previous food over the course of 2 to 4 weeks. Monitor their temperament and stools to ensure they are transitioning well.  An example transitioning schedule is below:

Currently feeding 1 Cup dry kibble and no Raw to a 40lb dog. The dog will end up eating 1 lb of raw per day and no kibble.

Week 1 – Feed 3/4 Cup dry kibble and 1/4 lb raw
Week 2 – Feed 1/2 Cup dry kibble and 1/2 lb raw
Week 3 – Feed 1/4 Cup dry kibble and 3/4 lb raw
Week 4 – Feed 0 Cups dry kibble and 1 lb raw

Some dogs are able to transition faster than 4 weeks. Simply keep an eye on their stool. If it gets loose, slow the transitioning down. If it you see no change or it gets smaller and firmer than you can speed the process up.

More transitioning tips are on our  “Starting on Raw Food” page.

How To Purchase

You can set up a one-time order or you can create a subscription that will automatically ship you exactly the right amount of food monthly, bi-monthly, or weekly. If you need help determining the amount to order please call us at 801-432-7478.

Shipping

All orders will ship on Monday or Tuesday and are shipped UPS Ground. The product will come in clear bags, not our printed ones. This allows us to keep the price lower and reduces our carbon footprint since we are not adding the extra printing process. We ship the food in insulated containers that use enough dry ice to keep the product frozen during transit. When you receive your box you may notice that the dry ice has evaporated. This is normal. As long as the nuggets are still firm and in their nugget shape it is safe to feed. If your box is broken or it took longer than expected to ship, it may be defrosted. Take pictures and send them to us within 24 hours and we can issue a credit for the order.

  • My dogs LOVE their new food!! I used to feed them dry kibble and they would leave their food in the bowls for 2 days before they would eat. Now they wake me up in the morning ready to eat. They also have so much more energy, they act like they are puppies again. The customer service is awesome! Too bad all companies don't have this kind of service. I will continue to buy Steve's Real Food for my dogs.

  • CONVENIENT, RELIABLE, DOGS LOVE THE FOOD I switched my dogs to a raw diet about 2 months ago. My older dog was panting a lot and he had a potato sized growth on his shoulder. The growth is now the size of an egg and his excessive panting has stopped. My younger dog was overweight despite the fact that she was very active and on a strict low calorie diet. She has slimmed down quite a bit.

  • We were skeptical of feeding raw. Finally we decided to take the plunge. The first surprise was, my dogs loved it. And the goat milk yogurt is a complete hit! They all love it. We had one small issue with the shipping and after one email everything was taken care of. But now that it's been several months we have noticed many other things. None of my dogs chew on their feet anymore. None of my dogs have itchy flaky skin anymore. And they are all pretty and shiny with tons of energy.

  • My dog was a picky eater and overweight. After 4 months of eating this raw diet he is almost at his recommended weight. I no longer have to coax him to eat by doctoring up his kibble. He eats the food as is and empties his bowl right away.

  • I wanted to give a shout out to Tara at the corporate office. She really went above and beyond! I had several questions about switching my dog over to raw food and the transition that's involved. She met with me in person and took the time to listen and gave me some great suggestions/feedback to my questions. She shared what her own dog went through and how raw dog food helped. Tara made me feel comfortable and was so kind and thoughtful to take the time out of her busy day to be so helpful. My dog is LOVING the food and has been transitioning very smoothly. Thanks so much for being so awesome, Tara. It meant a lot to me and because of the experience I had and the kindness you showed to me, I will continue to be a grateful customer and will recommend Steve's to all my fellow dog moms and dads.
