2. Beef and Only Beef
Your dog deserves fresh, whole food ingredients too. No fillers, No grains, No Soy. Our ingredients are simple--beef and that's all. We use only USDA-certified beef ingredients in the raw food we feed our pups. Ingredient list: beef, beef liver, beef kidney, and finely ground beef bone.
3. Delivered To Your Doorstep
Have a cooler waiting for us and we’ll deliver your frozen Pet Loaves right to your doorstep every other week before 8:30pm. Your pup will be drooling at the front door!
4. Pop It In Your Freezer
Pet Loaves are delivered frozen and need to stay frozen until served to your four-legged friend. Loaves are individually packaged in 1lb loaves for easy storage.
5. Thaw And Serve It Up
Before serving a Pet Loaf, thaw it in the refrigerator. Once thawed, it’ll save for up to 3 days in the refrigerator.

About High Sierra Raw
High Sierra Raw uses the highest quality local animal protein in our raw dog food. Each 1lb Pet Loaf is nutritious, easily digestible, and delivered biweekly right to your door. You won’t find a single pet-grade ingredient in our products–every Pet Loaf is human-grade and USDA Certified.
Dogs need a proper balance of nutrients and love all that they get from other parts of the animal. In addition to simple beef, in each Pet Loaf you’ll find beef liver, beef kidney, and finely ground beef bones full of food-derived vitamins and minerals for a complete and balanced meal. The fat content of every raw meal your pup will get is 90/10–5% liver, 5% kidney, and 5% bone dust.

How To Feed Your Dog Raw
The shift from processed, commercial dog food to raw should happen gradually. We recommend incorporating raw food slowly and steadily over the course of 10-14 days. This time frame gives your dog’s digestive system enough room to adjust to the new, healthy diet.
While every dog is different, we find that dogs typically adjust to the new diet within 10 days. Here’s how to introduce Pet Loaves safely:
Add a small amount of the Pet Loaf with the food your dog usually eats.
Mix ¼ Pet Loaf with ¾ of your dog’s current food for each meal.
If your pup is loving the new, raw stuff at meal time, add a bit more.
Mix ½ Pet Loaf with ½ of your dog’s current food for each meal.
Still drooling over it? Maybe your pup is preferring the raw meat and leaving the other food in the bowl. For days 7-9,increase the raw food once again.
If you and your dog both love the results, you can return to a normal feeding regimen on Day 10 with 100% raw food. You should be noticing smaller stool and more playful energy from your pup!
When you make the switch to raw food, you’ll typically be able to serve your dog less food per day than with processed food. Raw, natural food is more nutrient-dense and doesn’t contain any of those fillers that can cause health issues and weight gain. At High Sierra Raw, we recommend feeding your adult dog the following serving sizes twice per day:
1.5% of Body Weight for Weight Loss
2.0% of Body Weight for Non-Active Dogs
2.5% of Body Weight to Maintain Weight
3.0% of Body Weight for Extremely Active Dogs (1+ years old)
5-6% of Body Weight for Puppies (8+ weeks old)
You know your pet best, so pay close attention to how you pup responds to the raw food to determine how much he or she needs daily. If you’re unsure about the amount of nutrients your dog needs each day based on their activity level, health condition, and breed, ask your vet.
Tips for Serving Raw
- Take 3 days of food out of the freezer and put it in your refrigerator to thaw. Don’t serve your pup Pet Loaf when it’s frozen. Make sure the food is completely thawed before serving it up for doggy dinner.
- A 1lb Pet Loaf should thaw in your refrigerator within 24 hours. Plan accordingly to make sure your pup’s food is thawed in time for dinner.
- Serve thawed food in a dog food bowl and cut it into small pieces so your pup can easily enjoy.
- After each meal, wash the dog food bowl with soap and warm water to keep your pup happy and healthy.
