We ship in an insulated poly box which keeps the product frozen for at least 12 hours and up to 24 hours.
Permission to leave must be given for frozen orders as often drivers will not return to the depot once out for delivery.
The daily intake will depend on the breed, age and activity levels as well as individual dogs so can vary from 2-4% of body weight per day. Puppies 4 – 6% per day. We generally recommend starting around 2.75% of body weight per day (5% for puppies) and check their weight each week and adjust up or down as necessary and it shouldn’t take long to have found a happy medium.
For dogs over 6 months we recommend feeding 2 times per day. for Puppies feed across 3 times per day.
Example – 12kg Dog
12 x 0.0275 = 330g per day divided in to 2 serves of 165g each. A puppy under 6 months might want to have 3 serves of this size.
Meat – See nutritional analysis for break down and recommendations for each meat type.
Each of the Raw 4 Paws recipes contains only meat (about 80%), ground bone and organs of one animal, otherwise known as a single protein.
All meats and ingredients are sourced locally from human consumption facilities. Only fresh produce, and wherever possible, free range Australian meats, are used to assimilate a balanced raw diet for dogs and cats, as close to nature as possible.
Fruit and Vegetables
Although fruit and vegetables are of lower importance for a wild carnivorous diet, they still play an important role for our domesticated dogs.
All Raw 4 Paws recipes include market fresh, locally sourced produce in the correct ratio, including celery, leafy greens such a spinach, carrot, as well as fresh seasonal fruit such as apples and pears including skins. The skins are an excellent source of non-soluble fibre while the pulp provides the necessary soluble fibre as well as natural vitamins and minerals.
Raw 4 Paws varieties are loaded with REAL natural vitamins, minerals and live enzymes.
Kelp is an excellent source of vitamin K, folate, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, Vitamin B3 (Niacin), pantothenic acid, iodine, calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron, manganese, copper and zinc as well as being a source of Omega 3 & 6. It may aid in a healthy coat, colour and vitality.
Essential Fatty Acids, the “Omegas”, EPA and DHA, naturally occurring vitamins A and D in form of cold water fish derived oil as well as plant derived oil (medium chain Triglycerides with anti-fungal, anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties) in the correct ratio.
These essential fatty acids are important to aid improved digestion, nutrient absorption and healthy, functioning cells.
Chicken is suitable for all life stages
Raw 4 Paws ® chicken is an excellent starting point for dogs and puppies switching to raw
The recipe contains ground raw chicken bones which are soft and rich in bone marrow
Chicken is very popular as well as being the most economical
As a ‘white meat’ Chicken is a powerful anti-inflammatory, therefore is suitable for dogs suffering from arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease or inflammation of the skin or joints
Nutritional Analysis – Protein: 12.1%, Fat: 13%, Fibre: max 1%, Moisture: 68%, 169.58 Kcal/100g
Turkey is suitable for all life stages
Turkey is a great alternative poultry meat as it is leaner than chicken but features all the properties of chicken, making it also an excellent low allergy diet. It contains ground turkey bone
Turkey is the ideal choice where a dog has a particular allergy to chicken
Nutritional Analysis – Protein: 13.2%, Fat: 8.6%, Fibre: max 1%, Moisture 71%, 126.58 Kcal/100g
Lamb is suitable for all life stages
Australian Lamb is pasture raised so not fed on chemicals, grains or antibiotics
The Lamb meat used in Raw 4 Paws ® Lamb recipe contains red muscle and therefore is actually leaner than the chicken recipe
Lamb is a red meat and as such it heats the blood. For dogs that have excessive heating in their liver and need cooling foods, lamb is not a suitable choice
Lamb still can be used for dogs with mild skin conditions but not where serious skin conditions are present
Lamb meat is NOT recommended for dogs who have a particular allergy to lamb meat, lamb bones or lamb fat or have difficulty metabolising fats
Nutritional Analysis – Protein: 14%, Fat: 9%, Fibre: max 1%, Moisture: 73.1%, 143.30 Kcal/100g
Kangaroo is wild game that is organic by nature
Roo is the leanest of all the meats and is also the highest source of protein and Conjugated Linoleic Acid (naturally occurring anti-cancer fatty acid). Roo is the ideal choice for dogs that are obese or mildly overweight and for dogs suffering from pancreatitis, cancer or liver disease
However, the low fat content makes roo NOT suitable as sole diet for a prolonged period of time or especially for young dogs or growing puppies or pregnant and lactating mothers who require a higher fat content in their diet
We recommend for overweight dogs to feed roo exclusively until the desired weight loss is achieved and then a switch to other flavours to ensure overall balanced healthy weight management
Nutritional Analysis – Protein: 14.9%, Fat: 5.2%, Fibre: max 1%, Moisture: 73.4%, 97.92 Kcal/100g

However, Beef is a red meat and, as such, heats the blood and can promote inflammation, so for dogs experiencing any joint inflammation or degenerative condition (i.e.arthritis or cancer) or any skin inflammatory conditions or itchiness then beef is not recommended
Nutritional Analysis – Protein: 14.2%, Fat: 8.5%, Fibre: max 1%, Moisture: 72.7%, 131.36 Kcal/100g
