Your pets need more than processed food to maintain optimal health. For dogs and cats, raw, nutrient-dense diets like our Detailed Raw Formula for Dogs and Detailed Raw Formula for Cats provide everything they need in a species appropriate diet.
Fermented foods are healthier and safer than just “raw” foods and have more enzymes and nutrients created during the fermentation process. This promotes healthy gut and digestion while also protecting the food from harmful bacteria.
Nutrients are also pre-digested by good bacteria, making them easier to assimilate. These bacteria help restore health and balance to the microbiome, which is the body’s first defense against disease and chronic conditions.
A great fresh raw diet is the best natural medicine and first line of defense.
How do I thaw Answers Raw Food Formulas?
We recommend either thawing our packaged food upright in the refrigerator on a protective plate or bowl which will take approximately 24 hours, or thawing it in a sink at room temperature which will take approximately 6-10 hours depending on the amount. You can thaw, portion, and refreeze our products if desired. We recommend using safe, temperature-resistant glass storage containers to limit plastic exposure.
What's the difference between detailed and straight formulas?
Our Detailed Formulas for Dogs and Cats have a complete and balanced formulation, providing everything that pets need for optimal health. Our Straight Formula for Dogs is a limited-ingredient diet ideal for pets with sensitivities such as allergies, or health conditions that require a more controlled, limited diet. It is not complete and balanced, however it can be by adding a daily serving of one of our milks. We also recommend adding one of our bone stocks.
Can I refreeze Fermented Raw Products?
Yes. While we encourage you to thaw and use our products straight away, they can be safely refrozen for portion control and feeding convenience.
How long can food sit out at room temperature?
Conservatively 12 hours for fermented raw milks and bone broths. 10 hours for meat products. 24 hours for raw cheese and raw feet treats.

We of course value our customers' and their pets' satisfaction above all and if you have any questions or concerns with your order please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to take care of any issues right away.
Certain states have added or even restricting regulation on the sale of raw milk.
North Carolina requires label modification and for Vermont, Texas*, and Nevada (not yet in our shipping zone), beta carotene adds a splash of orange color. They feel this distinguishes pet products as "not for human consumption" and allows us to distribute our raw milk products in the states. Click here to buy raw milk products specific to these states.
Unfortunately, Massachusetts recently expanded their prohibitive laws on the sale of raw milk to include pet food. We are currently unable to ship our Raw Goat Milk, Raw Cow Kefir, and Cheese Bites to the state.
We will continue to work alongside pet and agricultural advocates who believe the expansion of these laws should be reversed.
We finally have shipping available to the entire Lower 48 States in the USA!
