Raw Food misconceptions
Feeding a raw diet is dangerous due to Salmonella and Listeria.
Stella & Chewy’s has a unique food safety procedure to ensure the safety of our products. The most powerful step in this procedure is our high-pressure processing (HPP) step—this is a cold water pressure process that effectively eliminates harmful bacteria from the food. We use this process on all of our raw products, regardless of the protein. As food-borne bacteria can be present in any type of meat, we feel that incurring the extra cost of HPP for all of our products is the responsible thing to do. This way, pet parents can rest assured that they’re always bring a safe food into their home. Additionally, HPP is the only reliable method for maintaining the wonderful raw nutrition of our products while still removing harmful pathogens. We then send all batches to a 3rd party testing facility to be tested for pathogenic bacteria—nothing leaves our facility without negative test results in hand. We also post these test results on our website. We are highly committed to creating the most nutritious, safe, and delicious product on the market.
Feeding a raw diet is time consuming
Stella & Chewy’s works to make feeding a raw diet easy. We offer a variety of different raw formats from frozen raw, freeze-dried raw, and raw coated kibble. As with any new routine, it just takes some getting used to. Feeding raw doesn’t have to be time consuming or difficult!
Mixing raw and kibble is bad for my pets digestive system.
We work with animal nutritionists and veterinarians when creating all of our products and we do not believe that there is any concern when feeding a combination of a kibble and a raw diet. Raw and cooked foods may digest at different rates, though there’s little conclusive evidence to prove this and no scientific evidence saying that they can’t be fed together. Many pet parents do mix our raw food with kibble and consistently have very successful results. We believe that incorporating even a bit of raw food into your dog’s kibble provides a convenient and perhaps more affordable way to begin to give your pet the benefits of a raw diet.
Is freeze-dried raw pet food the same as raw?
Yes! Stella & Chewy’s freeze-dried is a completely raw product – it’s the same formulation as the frozen dinners (in the same recipe). Freeze-drying provides the benefits of raw, and the convenience of a shelf-stable food!
It’s All About Ingredients
We use the world’s finest ingredients from suppliers we know and trust. From our responsibly sourced animal proteins, to organic fruits and vegetables, we are passionate about providing the absolute best for pets. The animal proteins in our recipes are responsibly sourced from trusted partners.
