    Available In

    Canine Freeze-Dried Nuggets are available in 5.5oz. and 14oz. resealable bags.

  • Safe Handling Tips

    Keep bag sealed and store in a cool, dry place. Once hydrated, freeze-dried formula will maintain optimum freshness for 3-5 days under refrigeration.

    Keep freeze-dried pet foods separate from other foods. Wash hands, working surfaces, utensils and any other items that touch or contact freeze-dried animal pet foods, with hot, soapy water. Refrigerate uneaten portions immediately or discard. Keep this product out of reach of infants and young children.

  • Preparation & Serving

    Rehydrate food with warm water, Bone Broth, or Raw Goat Milk to ensure optimum nutrient absorption. We recommend thoroughly incorporating one tablespoon of hydration for every nugget served.

    Use stainless steel bowls when feeding any product. Other materials, such as plastic and porcelain, are porous and can trap germs over time.
