Northwest Naturals Beef Recipe Freeze-Dried Dog Food Nuggets 12oz was developed with your pet's health, happiness and well-being in mind. This complete and balanced diet follows raw feeding principles and is the same as Northwest Naturals Raw Frozen Diet, in convenient freeze-dried form. Northwest Naturals raw food provides essential, species appropriate benefits to your pet that cooked food simply cannot compete with!
Northwest Naturals raw food provides active enzymes that are catalysts for all processes in the body such as cell growth and breaking down nutrients during digestion. Dogs and cats can also get all necessary amino acids, or building blocks of protein, from raw foods. Fresh ground bone is not only a great source of bio-available calcium, but also provides material for effective digestion and firm stools.
Northwest Naturals raw is made from only high quality ingredients, manufactured with care and product safety in mind under USDA human food standards, and is tested thoroughly before release.
