I feed K-9 Kraving raw dog food. I live near the manufacturer and even toured the facility to watch it being made. Nothing would ever convince me that any other brand is better than this one. They use an animal nutritionist to help formulate the correct balance and they are USDA inspected. The raw food comes frozen and i just thaw/serve.
Aunt Jeni’s Home Made is a grain-free meat-based frozen raw dog food using an abundant amount of named meats and organs as its main sources of animal protein, thus earning the brand 5 stars.

Raw Dog Food | Best Frozen Raw Diet for Dogs - Bravo Pet Food
Primal, Steve’s Real Food for Dogs, Bravo, Darwin’s, BARFWorld, K-9 Kraving, Pets 4 Life Pet Cuisine, Raw Bistro and Stella & Chewy’s all offer complete and balanced raw frozen food. Many of these companies also offer mixes and pre-mixes to go with raw foods so you can mix your own diet for your dog. There are plenty of other companies that sell frozen raw dog food but we have heard good things about these companies from people who have used their foods.I was happy with each brand that I tried, but my ultimate choice was from . I preferred them overall because they offered a fish-based formula, which I knew Eve could tolerate, and because they use human grade ingredients. They also are easy for me to order on Amazon. Furthermore, they have an additional product that they gave me a sample packet of called ($12.99). Perfect Form helps calm the GI track and keep things firm. I have since bought a turkey dog food formula from them to try. So far Eve has been great on it, with only one episode of slightly soft stool over 4 weeks of eating the food. That is impressive for her. I gave her the Perfect Form with that and things were quickly fine again. The other benefit I noted from the food was that, very quickly, while I was still testing multiple brands, I noticed that the dogs had more energy. I can only attribute it to the food since it coincided perfectly with it. So that sold me as well on use of dehydrated raw food in general. Honestly, I think any of the brands I tried, or any brand that uses natural ingredients and is certified to be a balanced diet would be fine.I gave my dogs samples of , , and , and they loved all of them. Each brand sells their product in multiple sizes so I am not listing all the prices here, but on average the price on these tends to hover around $45 for 4 pounds of dehydrated food. That lasts about 3-4 weeks for one of my 25-30 pound corgis. So it isn’t cheap, but frozen raw costs even more. Most boutique pets stores will carry some dehydrated raw brands, and I recently saw that was selling I and Love and You, which may be more convenient for some. After exhausting the samples I was given, I chose to buy , simply because I then got free shipping with my Amazon Prime membership.You’ve been given some bad information about yeast overgrowth on dogs. The carbohydrate content of your dog’s diet has nothing to do with external yeast growth. This is a common urban legend that gets passed around in the natural pet community. (Yes, even good vets are sometimes misinformed about this.) Yeast overgrowth on a dog is usually a symptom of food allergy. Allergy is an overreaction of the immune system as a response to certain proteins (not carbs). The reaction causes the dog to manufacture sugars in their skin (the sugar does not come from diet, and will occur even if there is 0 carb in the diet). The sugar can result in a bloom of yeast which feeds on the sugar. The source of the itching however, is hives. Get the hives under control, and the yeast will go away too. To control the food allergy you need a limited diet with a novel protein (a meat your dog has never been exposed to, like venison, rabbit, boar, or fish). Since your dog has been eating turkey, avoid all poultry. Stay away from common proteins like beef, chicken, lamb, and soy. Raw diets are still very healthy, and can help the immune system and skin recover faster (though they’re useless if you don’t remove the allergen). Vital Essentials is a quality brand with simple formulas and novel proteins. If raw in novel proteins is out of your price range, a LID kibble like Zignature Venison may work just as well. Food allergies take 2-8 weeks to respond to a change in diet. About 80% of the dogs I’ve worked with respond to a novel protein diet. If your dog does not recover with a change in diet, the culprit may be environmental allergies, such as dust or grass pollen. I hope that alleviates your mystery. Good luck!
