Product Info

We worked hard to get an air dried product on the market that contains a large amount of raw meats, vegetables and fruits, and is very well reconstitutable. In order to achieve this, we only use grade A, fresh (never frozen), restaurant quality meats. We use whole chicken and Angus beef bottom round. Never scraps. The only ingredient we purchase frozen and can’t be considered human grade, is the green beef tripe. Green tripe is not readily available on the market and is ordered by the truck load. This is very fresh though. The stomachs are flash frozen at slaughter and delivered to us on pallets in blocks of 50 lbs. All meats, we grind ourselves, to be sure we can produce the highest quality product possible.
In order for the dogs to receive the optimal benefit of the hard-to-digest vegetables such as sweet potato, carrots, collard greens, kale and broccoli, we ferment these vegetables for two weeks prior to production. The fermentation process makes the vegetable highly bio-available and boosts the release of vitamins and minerals. Fermentation produces an abundance of lacto bacteria (probiotics) which create a healthy gut environment. We started with fermentation with two reasons in mind: in humans, there are recent studies that autism and allergies are closely related to the lack of fermented foods in modern diets. A second reason was, that we were looking for a natural way to give the food a longer shelf life. Fermented food can be left out of the fridge for up to nine months without going bad. This, in combination with the air drying, was a huge success and never done in any food I know. The fermented formula, which we only have in production very recently, is extremely well received by the dogs we tested it on. They simply LOVED it.
The final product is air dried between 80 and 100 degrees in order not to destroy the integrity of the raw ingredients. All processes of humidity, wind velocity and temperature are monitored and automatically altered when necessary. In this way, we produce a very high end product, that is not only very bio-available but also very much liked by the ones we are doing it for, our dogs.

All BIG DOG NATURAL raw air dried products are formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the A.A.F.C.O. dog food nutrient profiles for all life stages.
