Mealtimes in my multi-pet household can be frantic: the dogs stand under the cat tree hoping to catch pieces of fallen food, the cats gather ’round the dog bowls waiting for a chance to snag a bite, and I dance around them all trying not to trip.

Raw food for dogs and cats mirrors their natural, ancestral diets
To keep our pets healthy and vibrant, they need nutrition above and beyond AAFCO standards. At Steve’s, we only use real foods to ensure that your dogs and cats are getting the phytochemicals, antioxidants, enzymes, essential fatty acids, and other disease-fighting nutrients that they need. A RAW diet full of high-quality ingredients like muscle meat, organ meat, and produce provides the digestive enzymes your pets need to digest their food properly. Cheap, high-carb, dry diets full of fillers and byproducts unfit for human consumption tax your companion’s organs, and can lead to illness and early death. Like humans, the animal body was never built for the chemical-laden food of modern society. A moisture-rich, species-appropriate diet that is easy to digest can work wonders for your pet. We see the difference every day.
