Wolves and dogs share 99.9% of their DNA, feeding raw therefore is one of the most natural ways of feeding your dog, as it mimics their ancestral diet. Although for some of us it can have downsides: cost, freezer space, getting in the routine of defrosting the day before and the inconvenience when traveling with your dog. If you would like to feed your dog a raw diet but are looking for a convenient alternative, dry raw dog food is a great option.
Our menus are packed with fresh meat, vegetables and fruits that are gently air dried to preserve all the essential nutrients found directly in our human-grade ingredients. Say Goodbye to...Storage issues, large order quantities and defrosting times.

Do you need to add supplements to your dogs diet when feeding Fresco Dry Raw?
Our Complete PLUS recipes are complete menus and consist exclusively of pure muscle meat, vegetables, fruits and oils. All nutrients essential for dogs are contained directly in these ingredients, no supplements are needed for healthy dogs.
How do we make our dry raw food?
The manufacturing process of our dry raw differs from all conventional "premium" dry food. Instead of extruding the ingredients under high pressure and high temperatures (pressure cooker), they are gently air and freeze-dried. All vital nutrients that are contained directly in the original ingredients are retained by this innovative process.
How to transition to Fresco Dry Raw?
There is no set rule as every dog is different, we do however favour a slow transition and recommend switching over your dog's diet gradually over a 7-day period.
We recommend starting by feeding 10% of the recommended amount of our Dry Raw on day 1 and slowly increase the amount each day.
You may find your dog may need anywhere from 3 days to 2 weeks to make the full transition, depending on age, weight and activity level.
Introduce new proteins: Feed a single protein for the first 14 days to allow your dog's tummy to get used to their new food. After two weeks, we recommend alternating between different proteins to create a varied and balanced diet.
Why chose FRESCO Dry RAW?
Your dog is not only harmed by environmental influences but also increasingly by the ingredients in their daily food. The preservatives, additives and chemical residues often contained within conventional dog food brands can be jointly responsible for diseases such as tumours, kidney and liver damage, impairments in the musculoskeletal system, fertility disorders and allergies. We have therefore decided not to use any additives within our FRESCO Dry RAW diets or across any products which we manufacture and sell.
General supermarket dog food is made from inferior raw materials, mainly cereals, bone meal and fats. Often, only a very small amount of fresh meat is contained within the food, instead, meat flours are processed and often declared as dried meat. In comparison, FRESCO Dry RAW relies exclusively on natural ingredients. In our food, you will only find fresh meat, bones and offal, vegetables, fruit and selected oils.

Daily feeding guide
|Adult Dog Weight||Daily feed Amount*|
Example: A dog with a weight of 20kg and a recommended daily feed quantity of 1% would require 200g of food per day.
Our Dry RAW Complete Plus Beef contains approx. 535 kcal / 100g. The above values are guidelines for the amount of food for normally active, not neutered healthy dogs. However, individual needs may differ by up to 50% from the calculated values due to age, breed or activity.
Storage & Feeding:Once opened we recommend using all of the bag's contents within 8 weeks, this is to ensure the highest nutritional value of the ingredients as we do not use any synthetic preservatives within the food. To store, simply seal the foil packaging with its zip-lock feature and keep in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight.
How to serve:
Simply pour your desired amount based on your dog's age, weight and activity levels.
Note: There is no need to add water to our dry raw food to hydrate.
Please always ensure your dog has access to fresh drinking water.
* Important: Since our dry raw food does not contain any fillers such as grain, rice or potatoes your dog only needs about half as much as from extruded premium dog food (Royal Canine, James Wellbeloved, Eukanuba etc.)
It is therefore perfectly normal for your dogs stool to reduce in size compared to a standard kibble diet. Our dry raw is nutritionally balanced resulting in more food being absorbed instead of simply passing through the digestive system.

These are great as a substitute for the raw complete food my dog has. Very pleased with quality.
I have 3 very fussy dogs who have been a nightmare to feed. I tried this food and they all love it.
Very good service, but dog not tried it yet
Have 2 lurchers. We’ve been trying a variety of fresco dry and wet foods. So far they like them all. The dry is also good to keep in a bag in my coat pocket as rewards. They particularly seem to like the veggie tinned food. I mix it with a bit of the dry. Still experimenting with the amount to feed. I think they require more than the suggested amount as they are constantly looking for more food.
