Raw Paws Pet Food Variety Pack is a new 9 lb introductory offer for beginning raw feeders that ships free!
The company is one of 3 raw dog food brands who’ve gained my trust since 2016. I found out about them one year into feeding my dogs a species-appropriate, balanced, raw diet.
My new pup Wally, a 40 lb Feist mix I adopted from a local rescue organization here in NC, has been eating raw since early 2019 and loves his new diet!
He already chowed down 30 lb of complete beef & beef green tripe from Raw Paws Pet Food when I was able to find a great deal on it. More on that below.
Raw Paws Pet Food gained my trust because they offer:
Excellent quality raw dog food.
Peace of mind knowing their food is made in the USA, without the addition of hormones, antibiotics, grains & glutens.
Free phone consultations and meal planning for raw feeding beginners. I had a phone consultation with a raw feeding specialist myself back in 2015 and learned A TON.
Regular deals in their “Sales” section. This is HUGE for me because I need raw dog food to be affordable.

Raw Paws Pet Food Variety Pack: Why Is It Good for Raw Feeding Beginners?
The Variety Pack is a wonderful way of easing your way into the concept of raw dog (& cat) food if you’re new to this way of feeding.
That’s because it takes the guesswork out of creating balanced, raw meals, and offers ultimate convenience by shipping it right to your home.
It’s ready to be served once thawed, comes with feeding guidelines, and offers a variety of different protein sources, which is important for a balanced, nutritiously complete raw diet.
This way of feeding balanced raw meals is how I personally began my raw feeding journey in 2015.
Back then, I had no clue what a balanced raw meal needed to consist of, so I took a leap of faith and trusted Raw Paws Pet Food (and one other brand) to prepare my pups’ raw meals.
Let me assure you that every single meal order I placed with Raw Paws Pet Food was eagerly devoured by my Boxer mixes Missy & Buzz.
It also resulted in shiny coats, the ABSENCE OF ANY DOG SMELL (!!!), smaller poop volume, clean ears and bright eyes.
Positive side effect of raw dog food: No more ear infections and stronger immune system
I was ecstatic that Buzz was no longer bothered by ear infections which he used to get at least twice per year while he was on dry dog food.
MOST IMPORTANTLY, it helped my girl Missy be in remission from cancer for 3 years before it came back.
Her initial cancer diagnosis motivated me to do all the research I ended up doing about raw dog food, and my only regret is that I didn’t learn about it sooner.
I will NEVER go back to feeding highly processed dry or wet dog food after witnessing its amazing benefits first hand.
That’s a promise I made to myself when cancer ended up taking Missy from me after all in 2018.
What’s in the Raw Paws Pet Food Variety Pack?
But back to the variety pack! It consists of eight frozen 1 lb tubes of protein and one frozen 16 oz bottle of raw goat milk.
Raw Paws Pet Food does not add any vegetables to their raw meals, which means they’re also wonderful for raw fed cats. That’s because they’re obligate carnivores, meaning they only eat meat, no veggies or fruit.
- Beef, 1 lb
- Beef & Mackerel, 1 lb
- Chicken, 1 lb
- Turkey, 1 lb
- Goat, 1 lb
- Lamb, 1 lb
- Atlantic Salmon with Bone, 1 lb
- Green Beef Tripe, 1 lb
- Raw Goat Milk, 16 fl oz
Ingredients of the complete meals
Beef Round, Beef Meat, Beef Heart, Beef Tongue, Beef Bone, Beef Liver, Beef Kidney, Beef Spleen, Beef Suet
Chicken Breast, Chicken Leg Quarters, Chicken Heart, Chicken Backs, Chicken Liver, Chicken Gizzard
Beef & Mackerel:
Beef Meat, Beef Heart, Mackerel, Beef Tongue, Beef Bone, Beef Liver, Beef Kidney, Beef Spleen, Beef Suet
Turkey Meat, Turkey Breast, Turkey Frames, Turkey Heart, Turkey Liver, Turkey Gizzards, Turkey Fries (= testicles)
Goat Meat, Goat Heart, Goat Tongue, Goat Bone, Goat Liver, Goat Kidney, Goat Spleen
Lamb Meat, Lamb Heart, Lamb Tail, Lamb Liver, Lamb Kidney, Lamb Spleen, Lamb Tongue
Atlantic Salmon with Bone:
Salmon Trim, Salmon Frames, Salmon Heads
Fish should make up about 10% of raw dog food and is a great alternative for bottled fish oil.
Green Beef Tripe:
100% All-Natural Green Beef Tripe
Tripe is the stomach lining of ruminant animals like beef, sheep, and goats. “Green” means that is hasn’t been bleached. Not to be confused with the kind of tripe that’s sold for human consumption at grocery stores.
That particular kind HAS been bleached and has zero nutritional value. Green tripe is a nutritional powerhouse, easily digestible, rich in amino acids and essential fatty acids, and has the perfect ratio of calcium:phosphorus.
Ingredients of Raw Goat Milk:
100% All-Natural Raw Goat Milk
Raw goat milk is highly digestible and known as “universal milk”. It also relieves joint pain, destroys yeast, and is a great natural probiotic.
Good to know:
Most of these meals are Complete with the exception of the green tripe and the raw goat milk. You can add some of each to the other foods.
Complete means that the raw dog food consists of 80% muscle meat, 10% raw meaty bone, and 10% secreting organs. This formula mimics what a prey animal would consist of and can be fed as is.
Raw Paws Pet Food Variety Pack: How much to feed
Raw Paws Pet Food suggests the following daily serving:
0 to 30 lbs : 4 oz for every 10 lbs
30 to 100 lbs : 3.2 oz for every 10 lbs
above 100 lbs : 2.8 oz for every 10 lbs
My current pup Wally weighs 40 lb, so he can have about 12.8 oz of food per day (3.2 oz x 4). I feed breakfast and dinner, so if I divide that number by 2, his allowance per meal is about 6.4 oz.
How to portion out the food tubes
The video below shows Raw Paws’ suggestion of portioning out their frozen food tubes:
I personally like to do it a little differently:
First, I’ll place the tube in a glass casserole dish and let it thaw in the fridge which takes about one day.
Next, I’ll remove the tube packaging and spread the food out in the dish.
Then, I’ll measure out Wally’s individual meals of 6.4 oz by using a large spoon, a scale, and food storage containers.
I put 3 days worth of food into the fridge, and the rest goes into the freezer.
How much does the Raw Paws Pet Food Variety Pack cost?
The Raw Paws Pet Food Variety Pack is available for $96.99 and ships free.
Tip: Use my discount code K9Savings for an additional 15% off.
That’s a good deal for complete, raw dog food meals. It is, however, a one time offer, so it’s really only meant as an introduction to raw dog food and to Raw Paws’ protein selection.
FYI: The Variety Pack yielded Wally food for 11.5 days, each meal consisting of a little over 6 oz.
It’s important to feed a variety of protein sources to ensure that your dog gets all the nutrients he needs. That’s because different cuts of meat contain different nutrients.
Once you’ve tried the Variety Pack and are ready to order more, you could try Raw Paws Pet Food frozen free ship packs as an alternative.
They’re available in:
- Goat & Lamb (8 lb)
- Beef (10 lb)
- Chicken (10 lb)
- Goat (8 lb)
- Lamb (8 lb)
- Beef & Chicken (10 lb, 20 lb)
- Beef & Green Tripe (19 lb)
- Chicken & Green Tripe (19 lb)
I got my hands on 30 lb of Complete Beef & Tripe for $179.70 when it was on sale a few months ago and translates to $5.99/lb.
That was a really good deal – remember to browse their Sales section on a regular basis! I stored the frozen food in my 7 cu foot chest freezer that I bought for this purpose only.
