RawGust is our favorite month at The Pet Beastro, and RawFest is 8/4-8/13 is our favorite ten days of samples, deals, and more! This time allows us to teach pet parents the importance of nutrition and proper feeding for our cats and dogs. Our current world has consumed us with fast, boxed, and processed food lacking the necessary and critical vitamins and minerals to sustain optimal health. Avoiding fresh food gives our body the perfect opportunity for inflammation, injuries, chronic disease diagnosis, and overall organs not functioning as they should.
We have worked out some great deals from our raw pet food companies! We have significant savings for the entire month of Rawgust and additional savings during our 10-day celebration for RAWFest happening from August 5 - 14, 2022. If you are new to raw feeding, this is a great time to shop the savings and promotions to try new products and improve your pet’s health. If you are an avid raw feeding enthusiast, this is a great time to stock up and save!
If you are new to raw feeding, our team members are ready to help. We all have experience with raw feeding or adding fresh food to our pet's diet. The basis of The Pet Beastro was founded on my search to find a better food option for my dogs back in 2003 when raw feeding was not very popular. I’m blessed to know folks in the pet world who have fed fresh food for as long as my family has with their pets.
Learn more about a few of our Beastro Favorite raw pet food companies! Check out the flyer at the end of this post for the deals!
Kelley Marian created Green Juju in January 2014 after five years of working directly with hundreds of dogs. An entrepreneur at heart, Kelley previously founded, grew, and sold a successful dog walking business in Seattle, WA. When Kelley’s dog Bailey was diagnosed with cancer in October 2013, she initially opted to treat her holistically rather than subject her to amputation. Given Bailey's condition at that time – struggling with allergies, weak immune system, and difficulty recovering from the biopsy – Kelley couldn’t see putting her through major surgery. This was the foundation for Kelley to formulate great whole food options that are now available in our freezer for your dogs at home. We are excited about the new product launches with Green Juju throughout 2022. These new items continue to arrive in our freezer, and shelf-stable products are on our shelves. We are always excited to support a company that has innovation and strives to improve our dog’s immune system with fresh food!
Primal Pet Food
Since 2001 Primal Pet Foods has been committed to elevating your pets' health and educating dog and cat owners about the benefits of feeding high-quality nutritional foods and treats as a superior alternative to processed pet foods.
Primal Pet Foods was founded to improve pets' quality of life and overall health and happiness through wholesome raw foods that mimic the diet of animals in the wild. Raw foods and treats are produced using the freshest, human-grade, antibiotic-free, steroid-free meats, poultry, game-certified organic produce, certified organic minerals, and unrefined vitamins. Their products do not contain grain, including wheat gluten, rice gluten, or rice protein concentrate. In addition, Primal Pet Foods does not import any ingredients from China. We have a great partnership as they fit our Beastro Promise and continually innovate with new products in different categories for cats and dogs.
Northwest Naturals' mission is to provide pet-lovers the option of feeding their pets a health-enhancing, life-prolonging, easy-to-feed food that is carefully formulated based upon the most advanced science and principles of raw food diet preparation. We believe in the premise that BARF (biologically appropriate raw food) improves the quality of life for pets. Our mission is to play an active role in developing healthy companions, regardless of size or activity level. All formulas are made and sourced in the USA with complete and balanced nutrition for your cats and dogs. All products are manufactured and shipped from their facility in Portland, Oregon. We love supporting other family-owned businesses that understand our mission to help pet parents like you create healthier pets that live longer when you feed better.
Oma’s Pride Pet Food is our longest-standing relationship with a raw pet food company. Our business relationship started in 2004 when I reached out regarding a distributorship for their great products. We still carry Oma’s Pride in store to this day! After all these years, my contacts at Oma’s Pride are still the same family members involved in the day-to-day business almost twenty years ago. You can’t say that about many other pet food businesses anymore. Their philosophy is that an animal’s diet should be “as nature intended.” They are dedicated to providing dogs and cats with the genuinely all-natural, raw diet they were meant to enjoy. Oma’s Pride makes every batch in a rigorous quality-controlled, inspected facility to provide you with the highest quality raw pet food. When making raw pet food, they must avoid preservatives, additives, by-products, grains, corn, soy, sugar, or ingredients you can't pronounce. To reduce the risks of Salmonella and E-coli pathogens, they use blanched frozen vegetables in all our products. We love the simplicity of their formulas to help pet parents make a balanced diet with limited ingredients based on your cat's or dog’s diet requirements. Oma’s Pride ingredients are specific to what your pets found in the wild (and nothing more) to ensure they are provided with the proper nutrition to live long, healthy, happy lives.
Open Farm starts each formula by combining the best humanely raised meats and sustainably sourced wild-caught fish with a nutritious blend of veggies and superfoods. They offer a gently cooked option using the gentle sous vide cooking method. This gradual cooking process retains more flavor, nutrients, and vitamins while providing higher food safety as the low heat removes bacteria. These pre-portioned meals are frozen to preserve their freshness. You simply need to thaw and feed your dog. We love Open Farm’s commitment to transparency for pet parents. Over the years, there has been much controversy among some pet manufacturers regarding sourcing and manufacturing practices. They eliminate all these fears with their ethical and sustainable traceability with every ingredient from every product produced.
Smallbatch produces raw food for dogs and cats. They are a small family-owned business in the bay area of California. Inspired by the beautiful local and sustainable sources around their site, they set out to make a different kind of raw pet food.SmallBatch picked up our first load of organic veggies and grass-fed, cage-free meat and poultry in 2006 after working in the pet food industry for years prior. Each recipe is made with 100% natural ingredients, no hormones, no antibiotics, and no exceptions. We love that SmallBatch works with local ranches and farms to support their local economy.
Stella & Chewy’s
Stella & Chewy’s was one of the first mainstream raw companies we could purchase through distribution channels. Even though the company has grown and expanded beyond the frozen food category, they still believe that selecting the best food is one of the most important decisions an owner can make for their furry companion. Stella & Chewy’s was built on the philosophy that pets thrive when fed the same diet they would find in the wild. Each batch of Stella & Chewy’s products is made at an FDA-inspected plant in the metro Milwaukee, Wisconsin area. Stella & Chewy’s is open about their sourcing and transparency. They source premium meats such as grass-fed beef from North America, Australia, and New Zealand, cage-free chicken from North America, and wild-caught salmon from North America. All fruits and vegetables are certified organic and sourced from North and South America. Added minerals and vitamins complement these ingredients to make each meal for dogs and cats complete and balanced, as determined by the American Federation of Feed Control Officials (AFFCO). Probiotics and antioxidants are added to each dinner to enhance each recipe further.
Steve’s Real Food
Steve’s Real Food has also been in the raw food category for many years. They were some of the original manufacturers of complete and balanced raw dog food. We appreciate Steve’s commitment to using free-range, grass-fed, 100% hormone, 100% antibiotic-free, and USDA/BSE certified & inspected beef. These practices also roll over to the other proteins used in the recipes that Steve’s makes for our cats and dogs. In addition, the fruits and vegetables used are Non-GMO 100% pesticide free. Each batch of food is manufactured under USDA and HACCP guidelines. All processing equipment undergoes rigorous sterilization several times a day to prevent any possibility of contamination. Each person that enters our processing facility wears sterilized clothing and footwear, hair nets, and gloves to keep our manufacturing operations pristine. After production, Steve’s Real Food recipes are stored at -27 degrees until it arrives at The Pet Beastro.
Tucker’s Raw Frozen Food for Dogs
Tucker’s is a family-owned and operated business started in 2009 by Jeff Kalish to make raw diets easy for pets and parents. All of their meats are human-grade and sourced exclusively from the United States. We appreciate Tucker’s transparency in sourcing all of its ingredients. The formula is primarily made from 95% meat, bone, organ, and marrow with a small 5% amount of pumpkin to support digestive health. They add a minuscule amount of chelated vitamins and minerals, making a complete and balanced diet. The vitamin pack is 1/1000% of their formulas sourced from North America, Europe, and Japan.
Tucker’s has a straightforward formula for our canine friends. Each 6 lb bag has 12 individually wrapped patties handmade and hand-packed in Wisconsin. We love the limited ingredients and novel proteins offered through these frozen diets. We find that picky dogs appreciate the vacuum-sealed patty as it gives the patty a juicier texture, while the puree style makes for a smoother consistency.
The Pet Beastro is passionate when it comes to feeding raw food to your cats and dogs. Over the last two decades, we’ve been able to help pet parents become more educated in improving their pets' health and longevity. All of this great information about products, sourcing, transparency, commitment, and craving to make healthier pets is affirmed with each of our raw food companies. These pledges fit our Beastro Promise and our mission to provide high-quality choices for your cats and dogs.
We look forward to helping you with your pet’s food choices! Cheers to health and wellness!
