We believe that all dogs benefit hugely from a raw-fed diet, however, it may require some weaning regardless of the age. We recommend introducing 1 protein into your dog's diet for several days and then gradually trying different minces each week.

We also offer puppy minces if you would like to try a finer mince for smaller puppies!

Our Raw Dog Food Calculator can help guide you on how much you should feed your dog. Please use this as a guide only and ensure you are weighing and recording your dog regularly.

We have a selection of minces including complete minces, bone-free minces and offal-free minces to cater to all breeds and ages. All product ingredients are listed in the product description. You can also use the filter feature on our minces page to easily navigate.

Supplements are a great way of boosting vitamins and minerals however it is likely that your dog is getting all the nutrients they need from the raw food. We always encourage you to feed a variety of meats and minces if you can to ensure that all of these nutritional values are met.

Raw dog food offers a plethora of benefits to your beloved canine companion. Not only does this natural diet use only the freshest, high-quality ingredients, but it doesn’t contain all the harmful additives and fillers that the majority of commercial dog food contains.

As a result, your dog will have:

  • Cleaner teeth and gums
  • Stronger immunity
  • Stronger bones and joints
  • Healthier skin
  • Healthier stools
  • Easier digestion

Here at Mersey Raw, we offer a range of complete and boneless raw mince dog food. Each of our quality raw minces includes a mix of meat, bone and offal. This includes:

  • Complete minces – 80% Meat 10% Bone 10% Offal
  • Boneless minces – 90% Meat 10% Offal
  • Offal free minces 90% Meat 10% Bone
  • Meat only minces – 100% Meat

Our products are designed to give your dog a well balanced mixture of essential oils, healthy fats and lean protein.

We recommend you transition your dog from their regular diet to a raw diet over a period of time to let their stomach properly adjust. It is best to start by introducing one protein to your dog’s diet over several days, then trying new proteins each week.

You may also wish to introduce this with their regular kibble to start, gradually decreasing the amount of kibble and increasing the amount of raw food. Please consult our transition guide for more information.

If you’re unsure how much you should be feeding your dog, our Raw Dog Food Calculator can help!

You can buy premium raw dog food right here at Mersey Raw! As a family-run business who feeds our own dogs a raw meat diet, we struggled to find the high-quality raw dog food that our dogs deserve, so we became the solution. Now you and your pets can benefit from premium raw dog food, too!

Raw dog food does not contain any of the grains that you would typically find in commercial dog food (e.g. wheat, barley, oats, soy etc.), which can be hard for many dogs to easily digest.

We offer a range of healthy raw dog minces, including complete minces (with meat, bone and offal), boneless minces and specially formulated puppy minces.

If you’re looking for raw dog food near you, then you can use our store locator to find your local stockist of our high-quality raw dog food.

Our complete raw minces are designed to offer essential protein-aminos and key bone fibres to support your dog’s gut health. Not only do they promote bone and joint health, they also promote a healthier and shiny coat, alongside better digestion - all of which can be hindered by a purely kibble diet.

Absolutely! Feeding your dog a raw dog food diet returns them to a natural, species appropriate diet that brings a wealth of benefits to their overall health and wellbeing.

Yes! We can deliver all of our raw dog food, including our complete minces, throughout the UK and have a number of stockists throughout England, Scotland and Wales.

All of the raw minces we sell here at Mersey Raw offer numerous health benefits to dogs. However, chicken does tend to be a common food allergy or intolerance in dogs, so we recommend consulting your vet if your dog shows any signs of a reaction to chicken.

If they do, we still have plenty of alternative proteins and treats for them to enjoy!

From Jumbo Turkey Drumsticks to Raw Beef Trachea, we offer a range of natural raw treats for dogs here at Mersey Raw.

We hope so! Of course, just like humans, your dog will have a personal preference on the treats they like and those they aren’t as keen on - so if your dog isn’t a fan of Raw Pork Ribs, we guarantee there will be other natural treats they will love instead.

You can order your raw dog food for delivery right here on our website - we offer nationwide delivery Monday-Saturday.

Our complete raw food boxes include 20 of our complete minces - that’s 10kg of our high-quality raw meat for your dog to enjoy!
