Biologically Appropriate Raw Food (BARF ™) diets are based on fresh foods such as raw meat and bones, seasonal vegetables and natural supplements and are designed to replicate your dog’s ancestral diet. At Cotswold RAW our recipes follow this principle – containing raw meaty bones and high quality carbohydrates and NO grain.

The recent World Health Organization announcement, backed by research, that processed meats are to be classified as Class I carcinogens. This means that there is convincing evidence that they cause cancer.

Clearly these studies and conclusions relate to humans but those who have always fed their pet a raw diet have always believed that the problem with commercial pet food lies not only in the quality of the ingredients but also with the very act of processing using high temperatures.

Humans are the only animals that cook their foods and we know that cooking breaks down the proteins and amino acids in raw meat, destroying much of its nutritional goodness. A Cotswold RAW diet guarantees –

• Quality ingredients

• No high temperature processing

• No filler, no grain

• No artificial additives or preservatives.

Cotswold RAW complete meals provide all the benefits of a genuinely natural species appropriate diet. They come in either a convenient sausage format or traditional mince, to deliver all the nutritional building blocks your dog needs for a happy healthy life.

Managing Director and co founder Mark Lewis says: “We have always been passionate about dogs and have worked hard to feed our own dogs the healthiest and most appropriate diet possible, ensuring they live a long, happy and healthy life. Living in the heart of the English Countryside we are fortunate to have access to the best that nature has to offer. With Cotswold RAW we are now pleased to be able to provide these same complete, natural and species appropriate diets to our customers’ dogs.”

Each meal is made using fresh, seasonal British ingredients, packed full of all the essential protein, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants and natural enzymes a dog requires for a healthy balanced diet.

Delivery within the Cotswolds and surrounding area is £3.95 for orders of 8kgs or more. Products arrive at your door frozen, you just thaw out what you need every couple of days and keep it refrigerated for up to 72 hours.

Most dogs will wolf down the tasty raw food immediately. For the more cautious, gradually transition to Cotswold RAW over seven days, feeding raw and a good quality, grain free kibble in alternating, separate meals.

In order to make raw feeding easier our sausages are individually wrapped in their edible skins and all our packs are the perfect size for stacking in the fridge or freezer. Just as with all raw meat the same rules apply when handling and serving our raw meals.

Cotswold RAW delivers the convenience of a processed food with all the health benefits of a fresh and varied raw diet.
