Darwin’s Raw Dog Food Review
The reason some people choose to feed their dogs a raw diet is because we believe it is a more natural and healthy way for dogs to eat.
What is a raw dog food diet?
Feeding your dog or cat a raw diet means to feed him just that – fresh food consisting of raw muscle meat, raw organ meat, raw bones and sometimes raw fruits and veggies. You know, fresh, real food vs. dry, processed nuggets.
Cooking the food destroys most of the vital enzymes and vitamins in the ingredients, which is why raw is the way to go. Plus, dogs are meat eaters! Their jaws, teeth and digestive systems are obviously designed to eat raw meat and bones.
I believe pets can do OK eating dry dog food or canned food, but a raw diet is the healthiest way to go for almost all dogs.
What I think of the raw dog food from Darwin’s
There are five main reasons why I love feeding Darwin’s to my dog Remy:
1. Convenience. Darwin’s delivers ground, frozen raw dog food to your door every two weeks with an auto-ship plan. The food is delivered in a box with dry ice, and the food is pre-portioned in 8-ounce pouches. Their auto-ship plans are flexible if you ever need to adjust, pause or cancel your plan.
2. Affordable. The raw food from Darwin’s is one of the most affordable pre-made raw dog food brands available. Of course, healthy food is always going to cost more, so Darwin’s offer a few options:
3. Top quality ingredients. Darwin’s uses USDA certified human grade ingredients from United Sates and Australia. The food contains no steroids, hormones, chemical preservatives, grain or artificial substitutes.
4. Safe. Darwin’s makes its food fresh and then immediately freezes the food in vacuum-sealed packages.
Plus, my dog Remy is so happy when I serve him his meals! He absolutely loves Darwin’s!

Darwin’s is a great way to begin feeding your dog a raw diet until you are comfortable making your own meals. It’s also a great way to supplement a homemade raw diet so you don’t have to make every single meal.
