Why Feed Raw?
The Raw Reality
Humans are the only animals who cook their food. Unlike us, dogs and cats are built to eat raw as they would in nature due to high levels of hydrochloric acid in their stomachs, along with a fast transit time, and mouths designed to rip apart and chew raw flesh and bone.
MeatMe is true raw food, meaning that it has not been adulterated through processing and does not contain additives, preservatives, or synthetic chemicals. It includes muscle proteins, organs, and ground bone to deliver the same powerful nutrients that dogs and cats thrived on throughout their evolution until the advent of commercial kibble and canned pet food.
It’s possible that meat for human consumption, kibble for pets, and meat for pets can all contain pathogens. Unlike most commercially available pet food, however, the human-grade proteins in MeatMe raw pet food are processed in a USDA-inspected facility. This means that our food is subject to more rigorous safety protocols than most dry and canned food for cats and dogs. Please note we recommend consumers use the same care in handling raw food for pets as they use when handling raw meat for their own use.
