Your dog is your best friend. Your confidante. Your partner in crime. And you’re their advocate. Their protector. Their entire world.

But did you know your best friend’s life is at risk?

  • Studies have found dogs’ lives are 11% shorter than just a decade ago
  • All types of chronic diseases are on the rise
  • 1 out of every 2 dogs will get cancer (and that number is growing)

The list goes on and on!

But it doesn’t have to be that way for your dog!

That’s where we come in. We’re here to help you beat the odds and make sure your dog isn’t one of the statistics.

Contact us today to get the support you need to learn how to do the “right things” to get and keep your dog thriving!

Barkley, an 11-year-old English Shepherd, is one of the Raw Pets Thrive Ambassador dogs. He used to suffer from awful skin allergies, but once he started on the Total Wellness program, Barkley’s immune system came back into balance. Now, he’s 100% healthy, and he has more energy than most dogs half his age!

Barkley enjoys sheep herding, long walks and runs, barking at the mailman, spending time at the dog beach, and cuddling.

His favorite proteins? Beef, lamb, chicken, and turkey!


Elle is a 6-year-old Lhasa Apso mix. She is one of the kindest, gentlest dogs ever, but she also loves to play and run. Elle’s sparkling white teeth, bright eyes, and shiny coat…not to mention her lean, muscular shape and incredible mental ability…are perfect demonstrations of how a natural lifestyle can help a dog achieve vitality.

Elle is a wonderful ambassador for Raw Pets Thrive.

Her favorite foods vary, but lamb, venison, and duck are always hits!


Motley is a 6-year-old Portuguese Podengo. When we adopted him in April of 2015, he was in rough shape, but a raw diet and natural support soon set him right! Now, he’s a thriving, happy, healthy little guy.

Motley loves going for walks and runs, swimming in the ocean (and any lakes we find), and eating (if we’re being honest, eating is probably his favorite thing)–but he thinks jumping into our laps to get petted is pretty awesome too.

Motley hasn’t met a protein he doesn’t like, but pork, rabbit, lamb, and bison are particular favorites.

In memoriam: Cleo

Cleo, a Canaan dog mix, turned 19 on April 1, 2017.  Cleo was our senior Ambassador dog and all-around awesome lady.  After she started on the Thriving Senior plan around the age of 14, she went from being frail and uncomfortable to gaining strength and vitality.  At meal time, even though she was 19 years old, she twirled and dashed around the house like a puppy, and then leaped out the door and practically flew to her eating spot.  It was amazing to witness her continuing to enjoy life right up to the end, despite her advanced age.

Her vitality and longevity were a clear testament to the power of raw feeding and natural living.

Cleo’s favorite meals were definitely raw green tripe, rabbit, and quail.

She passed on April 26, 2017.
