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 straight swap technique for effortless transitioning and recommend changing over the diet immediately.
- Skip a meal (preferably in the evening) and simple serve the nuggets the next morning.
- 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.
- Add new proteins, After 14 days simply start introducing new proteins into their diet, we recommend a minimum of 3 proteins. Alternate these proteins throughout the month to create a varied balanced diet.
Why chose FRESCO?
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 any of our products.
General supermarket dog food is made from inferior raw materials, mainly cereals, bone meal and fats. Often, only an exceedingly small amount of fresh meat is contained within the food, instead, meat flours are processed and often declared as dried meat. In comparison, FRESCO 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.

My cockapoo loves this food but it does work out more expensive than a raw diet wet food. Will definitely try other varieities.
My dog really enjoys having this as a treat. The size of each piece couod be smaller, about half the size, to make it even more usable.
Ada (Very fussy Mini Daxi) LOVES this food - so glad we've found it and i dont have to worry about that im feeding her anymore!
