Food Quality

La Vie en Raw’s primary goal is to provide your pet with the highest quality, farm to bowl raw dog food, treats, and bones.  We are picky about where we source our raw dog food from--after all, the research is clear that nutrition is critical for healthy, happy pups.  

La Vie en Raw sources its food and bones from Red Gate Farm in Upstate New York, where all animals are raised on site, grass-fed, grass-finished, and are absolutely never fed grains, or given any hormones, antibiotics, or steroids.  Most importantly, our farmer raises his animals for the sole purpose of creating the highest quality raw dog food.  That means our meat is never rendered, and each cut of the animal is used to ensure whole nutrition. Our farmer is a former NY police K9 trainer, breeder, animal lover, and has over three decades of experience producing the highest quality raw dog food. He originally developed this line for the K9's that he bred and provided to the NY police force and United States military. His intention was to provide these hard working dogs with the highest quality feed to keep them in the best possible shape; mind, body & spirit.

Our Farmer Frank

Our food complies with the AAFCO standards for a complete and balanced diet for all life stages.  We add a carefully crafted mixture of vitamins, minerals, and probiotics formulated by Dr. Bob Goldstein, DVM.  Dr. Goldstein is the author of numerous books about holistic animal nutrition. (*detailed ingredients are listed below*)

It's easy to say that our raw dog food is of the highest quality, but pictures speak for themselves. Below are a few before and after photos demonstrating the drastic improvement in things like skin allergies, weight, and muscle tone after pups started eating La Vie en Raw's dog food.
