We’ve been doing our Bravo Raw Food trial for just about two weeks now. Bear and Scooter have been super willing participants in this trial, because of course being dogs, they think taste testing is the best! When we left off, we had just introduced you to Bravo Pet Foods, as well as the two varieties of their raw food offerings that we’ll be working with: Bravo HomeStyle Completes & Bravo Frozen Blends.
Bravo Pet Foods makes frozen raw dog food that comes in a few different varieties, depending on your personal preference & feeding style. The options are: Boneless, Basics, Blends, and Balance. Additional details on each are provided in the chart below, or here on the Bravo site. We have been feeding the Bravo Pet Food Blends- in Lamb flavor- which has been great! As you can see, the blends include meat, bones, organ meat, and veggies all ground together in an easy to feed form.
Bravo All Natural Lamb Blend Diet for dogs:
- Raw lamb is the #1 ingredient, plus ground bones, organs and garden vegetables
- Ideal for dogs required to eat a single protein, limited ingredient diet
- Raised without added antibiotics
- No artificial preservatives, flavors or colors
- Grain and gluten free
- Processed and packaged in the USA from lamb imported from Australia and New Zealand
- Tested for food safety before shipping
Pet parents have the option of purchasing the Bravo blends in chubs or as patties. The chubs are available in2lb, 5lb, or 10lb sizes and the patties are 8oz each- individually wrapped. Feeding two dogs of vastly different sizes, I certainly appreciate having these different options. Larger sized chubs can be defrosted in the refrigerator and cut up into appropriate portions while there are still ice crystals in the center. We have re-wrapped ours with saran wrap and put into freezer bags for storage. The defrosted portion should be fed within 2-3 days.
Bear weighs 55lbs = 20 oz day OR 10 oz breakfast + 10 oz dinner
Scooter weighs 5 lbs = 4 oz/day OR 2 oz breakfast + 2 oz dinner
When feeding a larger dog of Bear’s size, the chubs make a lot of sense. The dogs eat quite a lot more volume-wise- and it is more cost-effective to buy in bulk. Small breed dogs like Pomeranians though, would be most easily fed on the patties in my opinion. With 1 patty being 8 oz- defrosting a single one could feed Scooter for two days. Bear and Scooter will be trying the Beef blend next week and we anticipate it being as big of a hit as the lamb has been.
Have your dogs ever taste tested any of types the Bravo Pet Foods?
