Suitable with Raw Dog Food

🥩 If you’re a raw feeder, cold pressed dog food is a great dry alternative to raw because they break down at the same rate – you can even feed the two together in the same bowl!

It's also a great option when travelling and feeding raw is more difficult, plus it's perfect to have stocked in the cupboard for those days you forget to take raw out of the freezer!

Helps to Aid Digestion

🐶 As it is minimally processed, it's much easier to break down in your dog's stomach. The gentle pressing method helps to aid digestion, which can reduce bloating and result in healthier poos.
