The complicated world of pet food

When it comes to our pets, ensuring they receive a nutritious diet is paramount for their overall health and well-being. In the world of dog food, the choices can be overwhelming, and pet owners often find themselves navigating between different options.

While dry kibble remains a popular choice for its accessibility and convenience, there is justified concern among pet parents regarding the quality of the ingredients, and their processing.

Enter Kibble + Raw — a game-changer in pet nutrition. In this blog, I’ll help you to discover how this innovative product combines convenience with premium quality, offering a nutritional boost that your dog will love.

Choosing the right dog food

Finding the right diet for your dog can be a difficult decision, especially for new pet parents. There are so many options and different brands available nowadays, from dry, raw, wet, dehydrated, canned dog food or homemade diets. Many dog owners start with a commercial kibble, due to the convenience and price-point. 

However, there are lots of kibble diets on the market which are packed with low-quality ingredients, unhealthy fillers and preservatives. These can contribute to health issues and poor wellbeing if fed consistently over time. Due to this, the transition to a more natural diet is becoming increasingly popular, and this is why I was proud to create my new Kibble + Raw dog food, as a total game-changer.

What is Kibble + Raw?

Kibble + Raw is not just another option on the shelf; it represents a shift towards a healthier and more nutritious dry food for dogs and puppies, without compromising on nutritional value, convenience or price. We have recipes suitable for both adult dogs and puppies, with fresh ingredients designed to support your dog’s health, wellbeing and immune system.

This deliciously unique product comprises of a protein-rich, high-quality kibble, infused with James & Ella’s signature freeze-dried raw nuggets. The superior dry kibble component has been carefully formulated with natural ingredients, to retain the essential nutrients your dog needs to thrive. The kibble suits breeds of all sizes, and the recipes have been developed to entice even the pickiest of eaters.

The infusion of our raw, freeze-dried food ensures that your dog benefits from a delicious raw boost, without the inconveniences that come with feeding a raw food diet. This creates a nutritious and balanced diet that contributes to your dog’s nutritional needs, in a way that conventional, cheap kibble dog food simply can’t. To learn more about about what a freeze-dried raw dog food diet is and how it’s made, check out my blog “What is Freeze-dried dog food?”.

What are the benefits of Kibble + Raw?

The health benefits of James & Ella’s Kibble + Raw extend beyond just meeting your dog’s basic nutritional needs. This innovative, new raw boost formula offers a range of advantages that can enhance your dog’s health and wellbeing from the inside.

Balanced energy levels

The healthy, unique formula of James & Ella’s Kibble + Raw provides a complete and balanced diet, from ethically sourced, whole ingredients. The naturally occurring essential omega 3 and 6 fatty acids contribute to healthy muscle development and help to balance out energy levels. As a result, your dog will appear calmer and more focused, no matter their age and activity level.

Better dental health

James & Ella’s Kibble + Raw food contains no unnecessary fillers and bulking agents. This means there’s less chance of plaque and tartar build-up on the teeth. Good dental hygiene is imperative for dogs as it reduces the risks of related health issues developing such as gingivitis and periodontal disease.

Improved digestion

We only source and use natural, nutritious ingredients in our Kibble + Raw recipes. High quality ingredients are better for your dog’s digestive tract, as they’re easier to break down and absorb within the gut. They also contain naturally occurring prebiotics, essential vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants. Better digestion also means less wind and firmer, consistent poos! 

Shiner, glossier coat

The naturally occurring omega 3 and 6 fatty acids help to nourish your dog’s skin and coat from the inside. The result is a clean, glossy coat that’s soft to the touch! A healthy skin barrier also means fewer skin issues as your dog grows and develops.

How to feed James & Ella’s Kibble + Raw Food?

Feeding James & Ella’s Kibble + Raw food to your dog couldn’t be easier! Like most diet changes, I recommend to slowly transition your dog onto Kibble + Raw over 7-10 days, by slowly mixing it into their old food, until your dog is comfortably on 100% Kibble + Raw.

To serve, simply measure and pour your dog’s Kibble + Raw daily portion size into their bowl and feed straight away. We cleverly calculate your dog’s portion to ensure the amount fed meets their nutritional requirements, based on their age, weight and activity level. You don’t have to do a thing!
