These products are designed to offer your dog a diet that is as close to their natural eating habits as possible, supporting their overall health and well-being.

Overview of Frozen Raw Dog Food

Frozen raw dog food is a diet that consists of minimally processed, whole food ingredients that have never been exposed to heat. This approach ensures that the food retains its natural enzymes, amino acids, vitamins, and probiotics. Unlike traditional kibble or canned food, frozen raw diets are designed to mimic what dogs would eat in the wild, providing a more natural and nutrient-rich option. At Kahoots, we're always striving to provide the highest quality dog food. That’s why we’re introducing our own frozen raw options, ensuring that your dog receives the best nutrition available.

Benefits of Frozen Raw Dog Food

Nutrient Retention: Our frozen raw food formulas preserve the naturally occurring enzymes, amino acids, vitamins, and probiotics because they are not subjected to high heat during processing. This results in higher bioavailability and easier digestion for your dog.

Enhanced Skin and Coat Health: Raw diets are rich in essential fatty acids that promote a healthy skin and a shiny coat.

Dental Benefits: Raw food can help reduce plaque and tartar buildup, leading to better dental health.

Digestive Health: The natural enzymes and probiotics found in raw food can help reduce digestive issues like gas and bloating.

Weight Management: Raw diets can help maintain a healthy weight due to their high protein and low carbohydrate content.

Reduced Inflammation: Nutrients in raw food can alleviate symptoms of arthritis and joint problems.

Palatability: Dogs tend to prefer the taste of raw food, making mealtime more enjoyable and beneficial, especially for picky eaters.

Oh, by the way, our food is formulated to meet AAFCO nutritional levels for all life stages, including the growth of large breed puppies over 70 lbs, so you can be confident that your dog is getting balanced nutrition at any stage of life.

Quality of Ingredients in Kahoots Frozen Raw Food

Our new frozen raw dog food formulas contain fewer than 15 high-quality ingredients. Each formula includes:

Herring Oil: Promotes heart health with its rich omega-3 fatty acids.

Pumpkin: Aids digestion with its high fiber content.

Raw Organ Meat: Provides essential nutrients and supports overall health.

All processing takes place in refrigerated spaces. Both meat and vegetable ingredients are kept frozen throughout processing to ensure safety and quality. A one-step grind and mix process creates a food that looks, smells, and tastes as fresh as possible – no unrecognizable gray mush here! The food is then formed into nuggets or patties and flash frozen in blast chillers to reduce crumbling and waste in the bag. Patties or nuggets go straight from the blast chillers into the bag to undergo their final safety step before packaging.

With high-quality ingredients and eco-friendly, sustainable sourcing, our formulation makes these foods stand out. Made with 85-87% muscle and organ meat raised in the USA and frozen just 45 feet from the point of harvest to provide premium protein. These ingredients provide highly digestible protein, thiamine, folate, selenium, phosphorus, zinc, CoQ10, Vitamin A, and several other B vitamins important for healthy bone and muscle development; nutrition essential for the immune system as well as organ, brain, joint, and skin health.

American-grown Pumpkin adds enzymes and fiber for digestive support, helping to ensure small volume, low odor waste. Herring oil from Canada is sustainably sourced year-round, providing even more of the most vital Omega 3 DHA & EPA than salmon oil. Herring Oil is beneficial for healthy heart, joints, and skin & coat. Free from synthetics – Apples, Carrots, Blueberries, and Broccoli sourced right here in the USA round out the ingredients to provide ideal natural vitamin and fiber balance. Fortified with Proteinated minerals for exceptional bioavailability and kidney health support.

Available in 8 oz patties or scoopable bites, the Kahoots Naturally Raw Foods are complete and balanced diets for all life stages, including large breed growth. All ingredients originate in the USA or Canada, carefully chosen to ensure they provide exceptional nutritional benefits in their most bioavailable form.

Feeding Tips and Best Practices

Transition Slowly

If your dog has been eating kibble or canned food, it’s important to transition them to raw food gradually. Start by mixing a small amount of the raw food with their current diet and slowly increase the proportion of raw food over a week or two.

Proper Storage

Keep the food frozen until you’re ready to use it. Thaw the necessary portion in the refrigerator before serving. Do not leave raw food at room temperature for extended periods.

Hygiene Practices

As with any raw meat, practice good hygiene by washing your hands and cleaning any surfaces the raw food contacts. This helps to prevent any potential contamination.
