Simply Rawsome Tips and Tricks for Feeding Raw

When you get your order in the mail you may want to defrost and portion out our dinners and meals.


Due to freezing and travel sometimes the product expands in the packaging or the plastic bags can lose its strength, therefore you may notice some of the bags may have split along the edges. You may also notice during defrosting that the bag leaks a little. The best way to combat this is to always defrost in a sink, bathtub, bowl or plastic tote bin to catch all the juices reducing the chance of a big mess.


After defrosting it is helpful to portion out your food into more manageable amounts to avoid a constant freezing and defrosting cycle (it’s ok to do this a few times). Tupperware, plastic freezer baggies and mason jars are a great option. Portioning out individual meals or 3 days’ worth helps reduce overall prep time and makes it even easier if someone else has to feed your companion.


While our companions can handle the potential bacteria found in raw meat products, humans aren’t as lucky. A few safeguards to take into account.

1. Wash your hands even if you wear gloves during prep.
2. Clean up prep spaces, utensils and any spills that may have occurred. Basically, take precautions you would as if you are preparing meat for your family.
3. Take out trash and store in a closed receptacle to avoid flies and wild animals getting to your waste
