Manufacturer's product description

" Our ground-breaking Freeze Dried dog food combines all the flavour and goodness of raw ingredients with the ease and convenience of dry dog food. Simply store in a cupboard and it's ready to serve whenever it's dinner time.

Complete Dinners Beef are made with quality, deboned beef as the main ingredient which is blended with a special selection of powerfully nutritious fruits, vegetables and botanicals. Formed into bite-sized nuggets, these raw ingredients are then freeze-dried.

Freeze-drying is a safe and extremely gentle food process that preserves all the goodness, flavour and nutrients of the quality meats, fish, fruits and vegetables that make our raw dog food.

The result is an incredibly nutritious meal that's extra tasty, as the process intensifies the meaty flavours dogs love. Plus, with no artificial flavours, colours or preservatives, Nature's Variety Freeze Dried can be enjoyed straight from the pack, with no refrigeration needed.

Only suitable for adult dogs. "

Why is the freeze dried not suitable for puppies if it is completely natural - seems a shame to feed this to 8 year old pug but 7 month old pup would have to have dry extruded.

Hello,

I have been buying for the last 6 months nature’s variety freeze dried turkey for my little dog.He seems to enjoy it and I have no problems whatsoever.

The only thing I noticed though and I wanted to ask you is the fat content which seems to be high.

Can you please comment on that?

I had a look and proper raw food has a fat content of 6 per cent and the freeze dried food has a fat content of 34 per cent.

Thank you

Hi, raw food has a much higher moisture content. This means the majority of say 100g of raw food is water, whereas 100g of dry food has around 6% moisture. Dry food will have much higher percentages of fat, protein, etc on the label as the lack of moisture makes it very dense in nutrition, but that doesn't mean it actually has more fat when you account for portion sizes. I hope that clears things up for you!

I don’t understand this reply. The fat content is the proportion of fat. So whether your dog eats 50g of food of 250g of food, 34% of the meal will be fat. Portion sizes are irrelevant!
