So far my boy Ted loves everything I have given him from Viva! He really loves chicken, which not all raw food companies offer. Thank you for the great selection of proteins! Ted loves Viva!
My dog Hope absolutely loves your food. She was already on raw but it is hard to get organs consistently where I live and I wanted to make sure she was getting everything she needed in her food. Your packs are easy to use and break in to one pound size so that I can mix it with her other raw food since she is a Great Dane. This is Hope and one of our cats.
I wrote last about how awesome the packaging is but now it’s time to talk about the food!
My boys are so excited to eat well they are cavaliers and they always act like I am starving them🤣
But this food is awesome and they really have been enjoying it. We just finished the ground duck which is a protein they have not had often so I am happy to add something new and they gobble it right up. I am very impressed with quality and I will definitely place another order!
Love the complete meals and our dogs really loved it. They licked their bowls clean. The ingredients are perfect especially for my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel who is allergic to many things. I’m hoping you will add a Rabbit Complete.,
My bengal kitten approves. So far he loves the choices I picked! I have offered the ground chicken, and the ground Turkey so far. Still have to have him try the duck, and beef. The beef he should love. The duck is the only unknown really. We haven’t introduced duck yet, ever. Great job viva! We have tried a number of raw food brands, and this is a win!
My order was delivered on time, packaging was secured well and the food was still frozen.
Pippa is a 10 lb. Yorkie and is use to ground raw food, so I purchased the 5 multi pack ground for her, my on wish is it was ground up a little finer, still had big chunks that I needed to cut up for her or she wouldn’t eat it. No tummy upset, transitioned well although she was already eating raw. I’m enjoying not having to source all the ingredients to make it a complete meal. Thank you!
We adopted Hunter back in April of 2021. We had our first Viva Raw order in May of 2021. It has now been an entire year of feeding Hunter Viva Raw. His coat is shinier and softer than ever. He is more energetic than any dog we’ve ever met and we’ve switched a number of paw parents into this raw lifestyle and brand because we believe in them. I remember ordering Bison meat for Hunter and the energy Hunter had after one feeding was tremendous. Because of Viva is continuously evolving for our babies, we know and trust the quality of their products. Viva Raw’s Customer Service is top notch and the owners themselves are very transparent and engaging with the community.
My 10 year old Pomeranian has been brought back to life through this diet change! Ive been feeding viva raw for just over a month now and changes in all four of my dogs are spectacular! What is most fascinating is my Pomeranians teeth. Her gums were always red and irritated and her breath smelled like death. In just one week her breath had no scent. The attached pictures were taken one month apart, before raw and after raw.
When I adopted my dog about 2 years ago she had a ton of health issues. I read a lot about the benefits of raw feeding and switched her over. Viva was one of the first raw food companies we ever ordered from, but we would occasionally switch to try some other brands. One thing I would notice is the color and freshness of Viva and how much better my dogs bowel moments were. On other brands they were hard and crumbly so she was straining to go. I didn’t really think that much of it until she developed infected/ ruptured anal sacs from the constipation. Long story short, it really goes to show the amazing quality of Viva and that just feeding raw is sometimes not enough.
Hi, I found out about your company from the interview with Dr. Judy Morgan DVM - the fact that she recommended you was all I needed- I feed my dog homemade pup loaf or Use Dr Harveys dehydrated mix and add my own protein - I am very excited to be able to diversify the type of protein I use for Kaia- i just got my first order which was Rabbit and Duck- I cannot tell you how thrilled I am that it comes complete with organ meat - as I was purchasing my protein and organ meat separate and calling around to the local hunters and processing shops asking them to save their organ meat for me- and it was always a worry if I would be able to find it during off seasons - I am looking very forward to a long relationship with your company
My Bengal cats insists of monthly orders. The only raw they like. Definitely impressed with quality of food. Feels good to know they are getting the best raw.
My Aussie, Katsu, loves Viva Raw! We love the great ingredients and the fact that this company is very transparent on their sourcing. 10/10 recommend.
Butters has had food/digestion issues for years, having been over medicated and his gut flora was destroyed. We've been on over a dozen different foods, including the "prescription" foods that were tried in haste. After much research, we stumbled upon VIVA and WOW, GAME CHANGER! The food is beautifully fresh, neatly packaged, great communication with the company, we couldn't be happier. We are with VIVA for life!
I have been feeding my dog Viva Raw for about a year now, and I love how convenient it is, but that I can still personalize it as I wish with extra supplements, fruits, veggies, ext. I also love that it is prepared but still chunked, so my dog gets the texture and teeth cleaning benefits! Everything always arrives still frozen, and it always looks very fresh
So happy with my first order. My 7 months old Goldendoodle really enjoys the chunk meat and I even got him to try the gnaws which was challenging at first but once he tried it he finished all of it :)
The shipping was really fast and the meat was completely frozen when it arrived. I will purchase again with no doubt !
Our kittens (now 5 months old) have been on a raw-only diet with Turkey and Chicken from another raw food company for about a month now, but I wanted to round out their diet with a few other proteins. I'd read that cats tend to do very well on rabbit and duck is also a good novel protein for them. Other raw companies either don't sell rabbit or, the one I'd found was out of stock. So I was so happy to find Viva! Our cats LOVE the rabbit - it disappears in two seconds flat they love it so much. They like the duck as well, but it's not their favorite. I will continue to feed with both from Viva and am looking forward to the day when they offer complete meals for cats! Until then, I'm happy to use supplements in their rabbit and duck meals just so they get to eat these nutritious food sources! It's wonderful to be able to rotate between rabbit, duck, and the turkey from the other raw food company (which is complete) and be able to feed our babies the raw food they love!
I’ve tried many different raw foods and cooked meals for my girls, my senior 15yrs old is super picky and she loves Viva, I do warm it slightly to make it smell good and she loves it. The rabbit has been a great novel protein for her skin issues. My younger dog loves it also, she’s had the chicken and turkey. I love that it has organ and bone. Thank you Viva for enabling me to feed great quality food to my girls.
There are many raw food companies to choose from and believe me, we have tried them! Viva Raw is a great product, easy to handle, easy to store and the dogs love it! We add a bit of raw goat milk and a bit of Dr Harvey's and the meal is balanced and complete. New packaging has been a little challenging but it has not effected product at all. Give it a try! And if you'd like to support Rescue, we at Cavalier Rescue Midwest INC have a coupon code for your first order!!
Our fosters in Cavalier Rescue Midwest eat Viva Raw!
My dogs love their Viva Raw meals. We started with the Turkey and have upgraded to the other flavors.
Great nutrition is the gateway for a healthy dog. They are carnivores… not canaries that can eat kibble and live. Gracie is on a completer raw diet. No kibble for this little pup. VIVA is part of her rotation diet along with 5 other raw food providers. A raw diet is a great inhibitor to gut issues, lack luster coat and either an elimination or almost complete reduction of health issues.
Gracie began her raw diet at the age of 12 weeks at the suggestion of her sires breeders.. and she will be 6 in August. Its been a life changer for my pup. While not all can afford these raw products to at least add them to your rotation diet of dried food to up their nutritional intake. I never met a vegetarian dog …. 🕉
My 6 month old 28lb puppy Maggie has been on the raw diet for 2 months now. The changes are incredible. Although the cost is much more expensive than a bag of dog food it is definitely worth the money. She no longer has dry skin, drinks less water... not having to pee as much, smaller less smelly poops and more regular. He energy level is crazy and seems to pay attention better and training very well. Every where I go I get compliments on her EXTREMELY shinny coat. WELL WORTH THE MONEY AND THE TIME TO PREPARE HER MEALS.
We are very picky about what our Cavaliers eat. Looked into Viva Raw…liked the simple nutrients list because we can add our own veggies and supplements. Best of all they love Viva Raw!
With two very different size dogs,2Cavaliers and a yellow Lab I go through a fair amount of food. The coarsely ground works great for all of them. The new packaging stacks well in my freezer and with a dedicated dog food container for thawing and storing there is no mess and no waste. I like the variety of proteins Viva Raw offers and the dogs do too!
We have been researching sourcing quality raw for our now 10 month old GSD puppy Rowan & our kittens (Autumn 1 year & Azrael 5 months) when I came across a YouTube'r discussing your 80/10/10 recipes. Exactly what we needed for our babies. The quality of these recipes has our pet babies eagerly waiting for their meals and clearing their plates. Our Azrael will clear his bowl and Rowan will share some of hers with him. In hindsight, I should have placed a larger order and should have included more gnaws. We're looking forward to my next order!
