Abby's Choice was developed for a one simple but very important reason; we wanted a fresh frozen raw pet food for our dogs made with U.S.D.A. Inspected Meats and Human Grade Vegetables.
We wanted to be able to see what the raw materials were like before they were processed into pet food.
Without having that option to inspect the ingredients in other pet foods, our only choice was to develop Abby's Choice Natural Raw Pet Foods.
We believe that the freshest ingredients are as important to our canine friends as they are to us.
When we were in the developing stages of our Original Blend we researched what ingredients were beneficial in promoting health and longevity. What we found was most of the ingredients were in our own home. They were not exotic plants or hard to find vegetables, they were vegetables that were part of our diet. On our "Products" page you will find the benefits of the ingredients that we use.
A frozen raw pet food is not an inconvenience as some would think. Yes you must think ahead to thaw out the food, but realistically you are feeding from the refrigerator instead of the pantry.
Again during the developing process we surveyed the people that were feeding a natural pet food and asked them what it was that they would like to have and what they would change in the products that they were using. The response was almost unanimous, they wanted a base diet to customize to their liking. If you currently feed a frozen raw pet food, you are aware of the variety of supplements that are available. Our research showed that some people preferred certain supplements over others. For example some wanted to use Kelp and some wanted Salmon oil, and some wanted an all inclusive supplement.
All of them have important qualities to offer a raw diet, but some people wanted to be able to decide what they felt was the best supplement for their dog.
If we had added any of these ingredients, it may deter someone from trying our food. We wanted to produce a fresh and wholesome food with the proper building blocks needed in sustaining a long healthy life.
That is when we decided to make the perfect starter base food. It is not a complete diet but a great foundation to start building on. Our blend consists of 80% meat, bone and organ meat and 20% vegetables.
We have taken the guess work and the hard part out of the equation for you to customize your all natural pet food. Our Original Blend contains meat proteins, the bones finely ground, six essential vegetables and a small amount of oatmeal. To make this raw pet food a more complete diet we suggest that you add cottage cheese, yogurt , fruits and the supplement of your choice. We like to you use fruits that are in season for availability and freshness. If you are in the North East like us, in the winter you can use either frozen fruits or fruits that are brought in from the warmer states.
Frozen raw pet food is not anything new to Rochester NY. We have other companies that offer similar products, but none are local. We want to bring awareness to this type of diet for all the benefits that are associated with it. We feel that a natural pet food diet has more benefits than a commercial dry kibble.
We have added a video that all must see and you can find that on our "Products" page.
We have had some real incredible testimonials that have been linked with our food and good supplements, and our Abby is one. You can find her story on the "Testimonials" page.
