What Is Dehydrated Raw Dog Food?

Food undergoes dehydration by being gently heated at very low temperatures to remove the moisture content. Since moisture can cause food to spoil, removing it allows it to be preserved and have a shelf life without refrigeration and without losing essential nutrients. This process differs from kibble production, which gets cooked at high temperatures that strip away its nutritional aspects.

Not all dehydrated dog food is healthy for your furry friend. Only dog food containing whole ingredients—like Dr. Harvey's—provides the necessary nutrients.

Dehydrated food can last between one and two years, depending on the brand. Dr. Harvey’s dehydrated raw dog food typically lasts for 18 months.

How to Prepare Dehydrated Dog Food

Preparing dehydrated dog food is easier than you might think. When your pup is ready for a tasty, healthy meal, follow these steps:

  1. Measure the correct amount of food based on your dog’s age, weight and nutritional needs
  2. Add hot water
  3. Allow it to sit for 8 to 12 minutes
  4. Serve and watch your dog devour a homemade meal

If your companion isn’t hungry, you can keep the rehydrated food in the refrigerator for up to three days. When you serve it again, add more hot water to restore its consistency, flavor and smell.

How Much to Feed Your Dog Each Day

The amount of food you feed your fur baby will depend on its weight and age—after all, a chihuahua needs a lot less food than a St. Bernard. Your dog’s age and breed also factors into how much it should eat. Every Dr. Harvey’s includes a detailed Feeding Guideline booklet in every bag.
