Meal Plans

At Rebel Raw, all of our raw foods are made using only the freshest, human-grade ingredients. We produce, package and freeze our all natural meals in small batches and use only the finest, restaurant quality ingredients available. We procure the same USDA inspected foods that are used in restaurants ensuring our food is free from pathogens. All our products are grain-free and contain zero additives, preservatives, hormones, steroids, antibiotics or fillers. We use local and organic sources whenever possible.

Cats:

We make it easy for you to feed your cats real food. We offer 100% finely ground chicken meals (meat, bones, hearts and liver) for your little carnivore.

Our Chicken Grind meals offer complete and balanced meals meeting the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Cat Food Nutrient Profiles for all life stages. The Chicken Grind meals come in one week increments, seven containers already portioned for one day's worth of food for your cat.

We also offer chicken and salmon, duck, turkey, venison, beef and lamb to add protein variety to your cat's diet. You can also add chicken hearts for extra taurine, chicken livers or beef livers. 

Our weekly meal plan is for cats with an average activity level, who need to eat 3% of their bodyweight to maintain their weight. If your cat is more or less active, or needs to gain or lose weight, adjust accordingly by choosing a plan for a lower or higher weight cat. You can also add side items to your weekly plan for more customization.

Dogs:

We want to make it easy for you to feed your dog healthy raw meals so we make pre-measured containers that are ready to feed. For a meat, bones and vegetables version choose the Chicken Mix meals or any of our mixes. Our mixes offer complete and balanced meals meeting the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for growth and maintenance.

For a meat, bones, hearts and livers only version, choose the Chicken, Duck or Turkey Grinds. We keep these simple so you can customize them to your dog's specific nutritional needs. We also offer beef with beef liver, venison and lamb as meat only grinds, no bones, to add some protein variety to your dog's diet.

We have four meal plans for your dog. These plans are based on and sold by one week increments. The first two are for feeding your dog a mix or grind for both meals. The second two are for feeding your dog a mix or grind for one meal and raw meaty bones for the other meal.

Don’t get too overwhelmed trying to decide which meal plan is right for your dog. As our puppy class trainer once said, “even if you do it wrong, it’s still better than feeding your dog anything else.” There are two schools of thought on whether or not dogs need vegetables and fruits or just meat. Some vets and nutritionists believe dogs need the added nutrition a small amount of vegetables and fruits provide. They believe dogs would eat a small amount in the wild and would also get these nutrients through the prey they would eat. Others believe this is not true and vegetables are not digested. They claim that wolves do not ingest the stomach contents of their prey and in fact, are shaken out and left untouched. A dog does not produce amylase in their saliva to breakdown carbohydrates or starches and this can lead to added stress on the pancreas. In short, there is is not a definitive answer and we recommend you research the various options and make a decision that makes sense to you.

Raw meaty bones (RMBs) are things like chicken backs and chicken necks. They are generally recommended across the board for dogs with healthy teeth, gums and jaws. They satisfy a dog’s natural desire to chew and keep your dog’s teeth, gums and jaw healthy. If your dog’s chewing ability has deteriorated, he or she may not be able to chew RMBs. If you’re not sure if your dog can chew RMBs you can order them a la cart so you can try them first. Some people feed them regularly as meals, others feed them only occasionally, as special meals.

Our meal plans are based on a dog with average activity level, needing 2.5% of his or her bodyweight, in pounds of food per day, to maintain his or her weight. If your dog is more or less active, or needs to gain or lose weight, adjust accordingly by choosing a plan for a lower or higher weight dog. You can also add side items to your plan.
