Most of my life, a dog has been a part of it, in one way or another. I’ve had two dogs that were a huge part of my life, a basset hound named Aries, and a Shih Tzu named Baxter. Sadly, Aries is no longer with us, but Baxter is our current furbaby.
He is a big part of our family, so much so that our son has lovingly referred to him as his brother. Seriously. It’s sweet, really.
As the four-legged member of our family, we care about his diet just like we do our own. We want him to have a long healthy life with us. So besides regular vet visits, grooming (which he is in need of), love and attention… his diet is very important.
In my research to find the best pet food for Baxter, I discovered that a raw food diet can be very beneficial to dogs. See, dogs crave raw meat, much like they once ate in the wild. Quite frankly I wasn’t very excited with the idea of “raw” food being fed to him, though. It sounds kind of, well, yucky. All I could imagine was a smelly and messy experience. Thankfully that does not have to be the case.
Stella & Chewy’s Meal Mixers is the perfect solution for us. Stella & Chewy’s Meal Mixers is packed with 95% nutrient-rich meat, organs and bone and will help bring Baxter’s diet closer to his ancestral diet. Each bag is complemented by organic fruits and vegetables as well as added probiotics & antioxidants, too.
I love that all of Stella & Chewy’s products, including Stella & Chewy’s Meal Mixers, do NOT contain grains, glutens, fillers, artificial preservatives or colorings, or added hormones or antibiotics. We’ve been trying to feed Baxter all-natural and grain-free foods for awhile now.
As I mentioned earlier, I don’t want to deal with a “yuck” factor when it comes to raw food. Stella & Chewy’s Meal Mixers are ready to go right out of the bag. Every bag comes with its own scoop to make measuring easy. Stella & Chewy’s Meal Mixers is mess-free and as easy as…
All Stella & Chewy’s Meal Mixers are freeze-dried to lock in nutrition and flavor. I know Baxter loves them!
I was concerned about the safety of raw food but as an extra food safety measure, Stella & Chewy’s Meal Mixers uses a test and hold process. A third party independent lab analysis is conducted on each batch of food before it leaves their own Wisconsin-based (yes, Stella & Chewy’s Meal Mixers is made in America) manufacturing facility. And better yet, the results for every batch is posted on the Stella & Chewy’s website for consumers to see.
We’ve only tried the Chewy’s Chicken Meal Mixers so far, but they come in 4 protein options:
- Super Beef
- Chewy’s Chicken
- Tantalizing Turkey
- Savory Salmon & Cod
They come in 3 sizes – 3.5 oz, 9 oz, and 18 oz.
You add a scoop of Stella & Chewy’s Meal Mixers into your dog’s pet food. Since Baxter is under 20 pounds, I will only give him one scoop of Stella & Chewy’s Meal Mixers a day; which will be his morning meal each day.
Add a cup of Stella & Chewy’s Meal Mixers…
As you can see, Baxter is such a good boy and is waiting patiently for his kibble with Stella & Chewy’s Meal Mixers.
Baxter gives Stella & Chewy’s Meal Mixers 4 paws up! I feel good knowing I’m feeding him something nutritious and good for him.
