Raw and balanced is key - and for us at Organic Bone, bringing on local suppliers who truly care about the quality of their food matters.
We first spotted Raw & Fresh locally and were so excited and inspired by their commitment to pet health. Scott and Holly first started the brand when they noticed how the nutritional needs of their rescue dogs were not always adequately met by kibble.
For sick, ailing or emotionally distressed dogs, the nutritional profile you'll find in kibble doesn't always cut it. Fresh and raw gets your dog's diet close to what they'd be eating in nature, and what their gut is best handled to equip. THIS is why we do what we do and why we bring on brands like Scott and Holly - to make sure you're getting the best, freshest and most delicious meal experience for your pet at the most affordable price.
The same applies to treats and anything else your dog might consume. A natural diet that's close to what your pet might eat in the wild is the best way to go. Scott and Holly noticed a difference when they changed the diets of their dogs who needed the most TLC.
The best part of putting your pet on a raw diet is the convenience - particularly when you choose delivery. We rely on Scott and Holly as vendors becuase they're timely, passionate about what they do and they have the experience. Managing rescue dogs is not easy, and ensuring the nutritional needs of multiple dogs is being met gives them the experience to handle deliveries for us here at Organic Bone.
Fresh matters because when you give your dog food that's delicious and easy to digest - without the fuss of having to go to the store and struggle with the kibble - the delivery is easy, it's affordable and your dog will be able to enjoy food that's easy on the gut. Knowing what's in your pet's food is half the battle - and Scott and Holly make it easy.
First things first – when we talk about human grade food for dogs, we’re not talking about feeding dogs food meant for people. The expression “human grade” when it comes to dog food refers to the quality of the food, the way it’s processed and the way it’s packed. There’s very little here having to do with people being able to eat the food. We don’t sell people food! The label means the food is SAFE for humans to consume – though of course, we don’t recommend it!
As you probably know, plenty of dog food on the market doesn’t have that safety standard. And the standard is important, because it means a variety of things for your dog.
Multi-serving human grade often equals no preservatives. You’ll typically find human grade dog treats in a resealable pack.
Is Human Grade Dog Food High Quality?
Human grade dog food is quality tested – and in the case of dog treats like jerky, hand-cut and often locally sourced.
The human grade label means the treats meet a specific standard of quality and safety.
In most cases, human grade dog treats work for dogs who have sensitive stomachs and allergies.
What Do I Need to Know?
The cut ensures dog owners know the appropriate serving size to feed pets, and the hand-cut also yields another opportunity to quality test the product.
We’re now proud to be carrying all barks treats – a natural, hand-cut and human grade brand dog treat made from natural protein sources like kangaroo and minnow. These treats are fantastic for pets with GI issues, sensitivities or allergies – and they’re made locally, so you know what you’re getting!
