What our customers say
Regrettably it had the side effect of causing the little mutt to lose 15% of her body weight. Not great.
She also lost her appetite for the kibble we were feeding her. Though she was never a great fan of the kibble and even with the addition of gravy would rarely finish her meals. On the recommendation of a concerned friend, we've included the Country Cuisine sausages in her diet and the change in the youngster is amazing.
She is back to her fittest and her energy, stamina and typical Staffie exuberance and love for life is back! She cannot wait for meal times now. A pleasure to watch. Even though I've just fed her, she is still giving me accusatory looks for not giving her more. I think this new diet has given Tigger an added reason to really enjoy her life.
I'm so glad we've made the switch.
Within hours the company had made contact to discuss the correct meal plan and options for Lilly. Kevin was so knowledgeable and the whole invoicing and delivery service was great!
I was hesitant to see if Lilly would take to this as apart from being a fussy eater, she's really not food driven so I thought I would have to attempt numerous approaches to get her first meal down. I have tried all sorts of expensive foods.
But what a great surprise! Lilly gobbled her new food down with much enthusiasm- she loved the sausage so much that she was even just spitting out the kibble. Lilly now runs to the fridge waiting for her Gourmet Gobble.
Thank you to Chris and Kevin for their professionalism, advice and friendly service. Lilly is now "completely food driven" thanks to your nutritious offering.
The first meal was GONE in 24 seconds!
My concerns were completely unfounded. Since they've been on the programme my 10-year old staffie is more energised, her arthritis is less pronounced and her eyes are so much brighter. She generally has a very sensitive tummy so I was worried about her but she absolutely loves the Raw.
We had a tummy issue after about 10 days, which could have been from any number of reasons, I doubt it was the food. I put her back on the pawtions for 3 meals and that sorted her out quickly. I give them a few spoons of kefir every couple of days but that’s because I eat it and I think it's good for them too.
They already know what "pudding" is and we get absolute "zoomies" everytime I ask who wants pudding. Judy (staffie) is polite enough to chew the chicken necks but Woola (Dane x Boxer) can't be bothered to chew - it's gone in one gulp no matter how hard I try to get him to chew it. Heck, I just want him to enjoy his pudding! LOL. He chews a biscuit longer than a whole chicken neck ! I hope the turkey wings get a better chew from him. Because of this I'm still cutting the sausages into chunks which forces him to chew. At least then it lasts 30 seconds and he's tasting it.
I have to laugh though - your training email mentioned that the raw food makes their poo and farts less potent - well there I must disagree. Their poo is definitely much less - I have to look for it when I do garden poo-patrol, it's not great pyramids anymore, but the farts!!! Oh my word - these two kids can lift the roof with their farts. Most times it's very funny.
All in all I must say that I am thoroughly impressed and very happy with the food. And I know that I speak for my kids as well. And the service that I received from you as well was fantastic.
Duné thinks she landed in heaven with her 1st portion of food. Even the crunchies is a hit. Not sure how long the Xmas gift will last but she loves it as well (or rather he - we are having an identity crises - gender fluid) Thank you for the gift and you will definitely see us as regular clients.
