Made with human quality ingredients, MaxMeat™ is a paleo-inspired, high meat, high protein diet that follows the whole prey formula which mimics your dog's ancestral diet. Each recipe starts with the highest quality meat available, including muscle and organ meat because, in the wild, your dog's ancestors were eating the entire animal. This allows for a concentrated, bioavailable source of protein and amino acids.

Added to these human quality, New Zealand sourced protein sources, are stomach soothing pumpkin and nutrient dense parsley. This holistic formulation is gently air dried to maximize nutrition and palatability, creating a nutrient rich, MaxMeat - Optimal Protein Nutrition & Taste, Air Dried Dog Food jerky style food that is complete and balanced. Enjoy every one of the unique feeding opportunities, including everyday meals, high value treats, or a powerful protein boost to your dog's regular food.

Watch Our Video: Benefits of RAW Diets
Dogs and wolves are 99.5% genetically identical. Those differences are important in terms of appearance and certain behavioral traits, but have very limited effects on their physiology. In particular, dog digestion is quite similar to the wild type. It makes sense, then, to feed our pets as the meat-eating carnivores they are.

Total Daily Feeding Guidelines for Dogs

When mixing with other foods reduce the amount of MaxMeat accordingly to avoid overfeeding. Be careful to not overfeed.

Each ounce of MaxMeat is equal to 3 oz. of fresh meat.

These amounts are guidelines, and your dog’s requirements may vary depending on daily activity and overall health. Puppies eat a little more, senior and overweight dogs eat a little less.

Ways to Feed

Only Natural Pet MaxMeat™ works great as a training treat or as a complete meal. Add this highly palatable protein boost as a topper for added nutrition to your pet’s everyday meal. Great for finicky dogs or just to change it up.

Split between breakfast and dinner. 1 scoop = ¼ cup or 1.5 oz.

Only Natural Pet MaxMeat Feeding Guidelines

Transition to Only Natural Pet MaxMeat™

It is important to introduce new food into your dog’s diet gradually. Transitioning your dog to a new food is easy. Simply start by mixing 25% of Only Natural Pet MaxMeat with your dog’s old food and gradually increase over 10 days.

MaxMeat Instructions

Transition Tips

  • For older, sick, or finicky dogs you may want to increase this transition time to 3 to 4 weeks.
  • If you notice loose stools or an upset stomach, this is a sign to make the transition more gradually.
  • Can be mixed with dry food or rice/potato if all meat diet is to rich for animals with sensitive systems.

Comments about Only Natural Pet Grain-Free MaxMeat Air Dried Dog Food:

Small solid stools that don't smell. I would feed this all the time if I could afford it. Dogs love it and it is all natural. It's like feeding them beef jerky because it is not baked. It is dehydrated and has nothing unhealthy in it. I am so glad it doesn't have canola oil. The only oil I would consider would be animal fat or olive and coconut oils. Canola, soybean, and cottonseed oils and any other plant oils are deadly.

    I am involved in rescue. I use this as a treat for all the dogs. The frail sickly ones are fed the 3 flavors daily. It is so easy to use and so very healthy for them all. Not a scrap goes to waste and even the crumbs at the end are sprinkled on top of their dishes of other brands of food. This is the best you can find, even better and easier than home made, or other raw diets. Well worth the price.

      I have been feeding my dog this food for 8 months. I have an 18 pound long-legged active rat terrier. She's a bigger Rat Terrier maybe mixed with another breed. She always loves this food. It keeps her lean and active and keeps her coat soft. I read the ingreadients to my mother and bought two 22.5 pound bags for her dog. We buy the fish and red meat bags and then mix them. It's top quality and priced well for grain free dog food. We joke about how the dogs are eating better than the humans.

              I always bought this product from this company, and then they were out. I started to panic as this is the only dog food my fussy dog would eat. They finally got it back in, BUT IT IS NOT THE SAME and my dog will not eat it. I was glad to hear others had the same problem. I understand a new purveyor is making it, but not the same. Will not order any more.

                I feed raw and have been purchasing this product as a supplemental form of food for training (use out of my pocket) and in food dispensing toys. I used to love this product, but the last bag that came the food was crumbling terribly. It did not hold it shape, therefore unable to use as I intended. It is described on the website as "jerky like".. it used to be, but not this bag. I called customer service and I did not get what I would call a good answer. I wrote a review, which never was posted, I emailed the company and did not get a response and then called again. I just wanted to see what was going on and if this was how the product is going to be in the future. It was decided in my last phone call that I wanted to return the product. I have to pay shipping to return and had to "negotiate" for a refund. I never asked for a refund from Only Natural Pet before... I was surprised that their 100% Guarantee is for "STORE CREDIT"... There are products this company produces that I really like, and I like guarantees for satisfaction... however.. I am not a fan of "store credit only"......

THEY HAVE NEVER BEEN SICK A DAY IN THEIR LIFE. ONLY NATURAL IS THE ONLY DOG FOOD THEY GET.

                    I feed Raw and have been using this as part of my feeding program. I liked the quality of the food and the jerkey like texture. This was the product that I used as an "out of pocket" food or would place it into a food dispensing toy to keep the dogs busy or stimulate them mentally. This order came and its texture is different from all previous orders. It is not jerkey like. Some of the food in the bag almost has the same shape, but crumbles into somewhat of a powder. Also, a lot of it in the bag is all broken down. As a result, I cannot use it out of my pocket for training or in food dispensing toys as it just completely breaks apart. I called customer service to inquire about this and if quality control checks the food. My first thought was there was not 90% of meat in the product and it somehow slipped through quality.... I was told about it being "reformulated" and to check the description/ingredients on the website. The bag says 90% meat, just as before and all ingredients read the same..... The listed ingredients on the bag read "identical" to my previous bags that I have ordered.I was told there is more pumpkin & pomegranite. So I ask, does that mean there is less than 90% meat... I was told no, it is 90% meat. How can that be if it is reformulated with more pumpkin & pomegranite?? I am mystified that it would be so different in texture and color (very crumbly and more of an orange color) I am including a picture of the product as an example. The jerky like product on the left in the picture is from my previous order and the crumbly stuff on the right is what I just received recently. I may just be sending this bag back.... Disappointed as I really loved the original product!

                    I've been looking for a raw dog food that meets strict criteria for awhile now and I've finally found it. This food does NOT contain veggies (namely sweet potatoes) which cause my dog to scratch herself. It is hard to find foods that are grain free without veggies as filler but here it is! Because of the cost, I only feed this everyday to my one dog (Lab/R. Ridgeback mix with allergies) but the others do get it a few times a week and all of them LOVE it. Also works well as training treats!
