MaxMeat - 90% Real Meat Nutrition & Taste, Air Dried Dog Food
MaxMeat - 100% high Quality

Made with high quality ingredients, MaxMeat™ is a paleo-inspired, high meat, high protein diet. It's an air dried dog food 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 high 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.

  • Holistical, science based formulation allows for better daily nutrition with smaller servings - saving you money

High Quality Ingredients

  • MaxMeat contains only high quality ingredients sourced from New Zealand
  • These recipes are made with real, free range meat that is raised without the use of added antibiotics or growth hormones

Unparalleled Taste

  • Each diet has the real meat taste dogs love and is ideal for finicky eaters - making a perfect food topper or an everyday meal
Nutrition, Quality, Taste Air Dried
  • Air drying is a gentle process that briefly heats MaxMeat to 160°, allowing for the optimal balance of protein, nutrient retention and flavor
  • This unique process allows the thin, quarter sized slices of MaxMeat to be served as easily as kibble, while offering far superior nutrition

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 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.

Picky eaters

By Tina B.

from Boulder, CO

Verified Reviewer

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

My husky and pitbull mix both love the maxmeat. They are super picky eaters when it comes to food, so it's a great feeling when they will eat the entire bowl. They are both pretty active dogs and it helps maintain their nice healthy weight. Both digest the food very well and have nice small, solid poops. I would definitely reccommend this food for any picky eaters out there!

Picky elder big dog LOVES this

By CindyO

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

Since my big guy reached 14+ years, he has become very picky. Even cheese and bacon pieces are refused! But he loves this Air dried MaxMeat like it's candy. I am trying not to feed both my big dogs kibble any longer, so this seems to really fit the bill.

Have a Picky Pooch? Sensitive belly? Swallowing issues? ect?

By Mlli

from Alabama

Verified Reviewer

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

I have three pugs. Two of which will eat anything as long as it's good. One will eat anything, well, just because. The female however is spoiled. She get's her maw wrapped around something extra tasty and she won't give it up. She tries to hold out for her favorites. Which is now, you guessed it, MaxMeat. This pug knows her meats by name in cooked and raw state. Of course no self-respecting dog will turn their nose up to good old fashion hunk of meat on their plate. Now since this is my honest opinion and I don't get anything for this review but to share my experiences with other pet parents, here's the short list of top commercial brands that my little connoisseur cutie snubs her nose at since she discovered MaxMeat. Ziwipeak, Orijen Freeze-Dried, Grandma Lucy's, Caru, Vital Essentials, The Honest Kitchen, Stella&Chewy's, Tucker's. These brands all have awesome nutrition and are packed with good taste. So mentioning these brands isn't about quality but simply the selective taste of my picky pug. All she wants now is MaxMeat or meats from the fridge. Which is fine with me since it passes all my criteria...including price. You can easily over-feed your dog on this stuff since it's packed like a powerbar for pups. This food is truly cost effective when you feed them what they need and not what they demand with their puppy eyes. No upsets in the belly which is such a relief finally! Pugs are known to have swallowing difficulties but MaxMeat is easy to chew and swallow and that's right out of the bag without having to wet it down. As a side perk, this food is portable for travel and easy to feed in the car. No need for a bowl which rocks because the female also prefers to eat straight off the floor. She tends to circle her meals and a plate or bowl actually makes it harder for her little brachycephalic-face to get her food into her mouth. This company has to live up to it's name and promises like any other company these days. So far they are doing just that.

I use this as a main meal choice. Our dog eats free choice as she is a nibbler. It seems to be a tie between this an Dehydrated RawNibs but she likes both, with a backup of Powerfood kibble. She is an ONP puppy and refuses anything else!

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

    I have a beagle, beagle/coonhound, and a treeing walker coonhound/ great pryenees that just go crazy when they hear me getting their meals ready and when I grab a handful for treats throughout the day. I use this a topper over their wholesome homemade dehydrated red meat stew and can honestly say I never saw them enjoy their meals as much as they do now. I feel confident giving my pets Only Natural Pet food as well using the many products I have purchased from Only Natural Pet.

    This is an incredible product that my dogs love! I love that they use protein sourced from New Zealand and that are grass-fed, free range. My only complaint is the lack of a variety of vegetables and not using low carb veggies. Why not change up the choice of veggies with each flavor and make some low carb, such as broccoli, green beans and zucchini??
