Wysong Archetype Diets (are'-kah-type – meaning the original model, the way things are meant to be) seek to emulate the food animals eat in the wild – the diet they are genetically programmed to eat. The various formulas contain a variety of natural ingredients including non-heat degraded meat, organs, bones, collagen, proteoglycans (chondroitin, glucosamine), pre- and probiotics, and are enhanced with phytonutrient and antioxidant rich fruits, vegetables, and greens.

  • Archetype - dehydrated raw beef and chicken meat diet in chunk form.
  • Archetype Burgers - dehydrated raw beef and chicken meat diet, with beneficial fruits and vegetables, in patty form.
  • Archetype Buffet - dehydrated raw beef and chicken combined with fruits, vegetables and vegetarian nuggets that form a stew-like mixture when combined with water. complete with nonheat degraded meat, organs, bones, collagen, proteo-glycans (chondroitin, glucosamine), prebiotics and probiotics, and enhanced with phyto-nutrient, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables. When mixed with water, dry Buffet becomes a stew-like food. Each bag rehydrates to the equivalent of eleven 5.5 oz. cans of food.

Archetype Features

  • Non-heated meats; heat destroys nutrients and creates toxins.
  • Rich in enzymes and probiotic cultures, like all real foods in nature. They have intact the synergistic complexity of life itself.
  • Complete with fresh meat, organs, bones, plant nutrients, collagen, proteoglycans
    (chondroitin, glucosamine), vitamins and chelated minerals.
  • Rich in proteins including amino acids such as taurine, arginine and L-carnitine. Amino acids are commonly degraded or lost in heat-processed food.
  • Contain health – and immune enhancing fatty acids, including omega-3’s.
  • Contain little or no grains and thus do not contribute to the modern carbohydrate glut diseases such as obesity, cardiovascular disease, acidosis, arthritis, and Type II diabetes.
  • Designed to be free of non-nutritional additives used by manufacturers to create color, texture, taste, stool consistency or shelf-life.
  • Designed to achieve optimal nutrition that is beyond minimal regulatory standards for so-called “100% complete” diets.

How to Use Archetype

Use these unique animal diets as a singular food for a meal, as well as for a supplement or treat. Gradually introduce them to avoid digestive upset. Variety is the spice of health. Use them in combination with, or as an alternative to, meals of the various Wysong canned and dry diets, Wysong supplements, and fresh foods.

Always keep fresh, pure water available and offer plenty of fresh air, sunshine, exercise, and big doses of your tender loving care.

  • Archetype and Archetype Burgers may be fed dry or soaked with water (see recommended rehydration amounts). Let soak for 10-15 minutes, or until rehydrated.
  • Archetype Burgers cannister contains 9 burgers, each measuring 4 1/2" wide by 3/4" thick.

Rehydrate Archetype Buffet on a 1:1 basis (i.e. 1 cup of dry Buffet with 1 cup of water). Mix dry Buffet with warm (not hot) water, and let stand for approximately 15-20 minutes or until a stew-like mixture is formed. You may use more or less water, or feed dry, depending upon your pet's preferences. Using the recommended proportions, ½ cup (1.8 oz.) of Archetype Buffet rehydrates to approximately one 5.5 oz. can of food or 11 cans per bag. Archetype Diets should be kept sealed in a cool, dry place and used immediately once rehydrated.

      Comments about Wysong Canine & Feline Diet Archetype Freeze Dried Food:

      All of my pets love it. Speedy, the 5 yr.s old cat used to only loves dry kibbles. She didn't care about wet canned food or home cooked meal. But she loves Archetype diet. I add water. She ate them all. I sprinkle some on her canned food, she will eat the canned food too. My 2 1/2 old cat, Spot prefer Archetype Burger. He likes it dried. So I mix both together, he will eat both. Whiskey the dog love them any way I give it to her. I love this food because it is for both dog and cat and I know that it is good for them.

        We have a 9 year old male Boxer who loves Wysong Archetype and we recently adopted a 17-month old female Boxer who needed to put on some weight. Archetype was a hit from the first bowl of food! She eats like a champ and put on the necessary weight to get her into the normal weight range.

                A freeze-dried product that is high quality, convenient and nutritious. My cats love it. This food has a high fat content, and should only be used as a supplement to the regular diet. I feed it once, and never more than twice a week. It is especially good for cats that refuse salmon oil or other essential oils. I feed about 1 tablespoon, rehydrated with water.

                My shih tzu enjoys this stuff, and I feel good about giving it to him. I usually feed Merrick wet and Orijen kibble, but every 2 months I switch the Merrick with the Wysong. No stomach issues. The bag only lasts about a week and a half but I feel it's worth it.

                  If I just get close to where I store this food my Yorkie starts doing back flips. He loves this food. I have been using Wysong for 20 years so I trust it to be good. We travel a lot and this food is much easier to carry than cans. It hydrates easily, unless I consider the contortions my doggy is going through while we wait for the water to soak in, and the packages weigh almost nothing. If it was free it would be perfect.

                      Each package of Archetype has a mix of chunks, shreds and powder in it. My lhasapoo thinks the chunks are a delicious treat. I mix the shreds and powder in with my dog's Wysong Maintenance kibble. He readily eats the Archetype and if it wasn't so expensive, I'd give him a much greater proportion of it, because I think it's a perfect non-cooked food. I like the mix of meat, organs, bones, plant nutrients, and micronutrients.

                        My two Aussies enjoy both the Buffet and Burgers. I liked the look of the Buffet when rehydrated - it looked like real food and smelled good.
                        The Burgers reminded me of dense rice cakes and smelled odd. The dogs would eat them right out of the package or rehydrated. The only way that I could rehydrate the Burgers was to break them apart before adding water.
