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!
I have "that" dog who has allergy issues with everything under the sun. I have to be very careful what I feed her and therefore do a lot of research before buying. The first thing that made me smile was the recyclable insulation in your boxes. The other companies I buy from use Styrofoam and of course, no one recycles that. The second thing I noticed was the packaging of the grind itself. I don't think I will ever have to worry about open packages with your product. Plus, I can order smaller quantities and not pay an arm and leg for shipping.
I ordered Rabbit and Emu (wish I could do more than two) because I know Katie does well of both of these. I am trying the beef. In the past Katie has had issues with this one, but I am hopeful that yours will do better. I am really wishing you would have pork sometime in the future as I know she does well on that on too.
I am happy that Dr. Judy Morgan recommended your products and that she feels they are up to her strict standards. Good luck with your business, and thank you from our fur babies.
My kitties love the turkey and, especially, the rabbit. It arrives perfectly frozen and nicely packaged. The packages stand up in my refrigerator and are easy to open. We've all been very happy with Viva Raw! Here they are waiting for their breakfast of Viva Raw rabbit.
I added VIVA based on the recommendation of our breeder TRUMPET KEESHOND. It was a great hit! I added it to her existing 2 other raw brands so no transition needed. What I do wish is that there were smaller . I only have the one pup and that is a lot to UNTHAW and feed without letting any go to waste. Gracies meal regimen includes a different protein for first meal of the day and a second for her dinner. So, I partially unthawed VIVA roll, cut it into segments and refrozen the remainder. So, she LOVES it but I would prefer smaller packages.
Great packaging and arrived frozen. All my furkids enjoyed it and will be ordering more items.
Excellent customer service! Rapid response to email question over weekend. Quick notice of dry ice shortage delaying shipment 1 day. Order arrived on time. Box was extremely well package. Individual 2lb pkgs. were excellent. No leaking at all. Stand up easily, which is nice for serving. Most important, dog loved it! Transition was easy, with no issues. Very high quality product.
Transitioned over to Viva from another raw brand and I'm so happy. My dog loves it and I love the quality and variety. So happy I found Viva! The price and quality are amazing!
Levi always had digestive issues; diarrhea frequently, and would often get sick in the morning. I'm now 4+ months into a raw feeding diet and Levi has not been sick once! Bathroom breaks are much pleasant, and Levi loves his raw food diet. While it is pricier than traditional kibble, giving my dog a diet with ingredients that I know and can recognize is worth the extra money. Viva Raw is a great company, product is always fresh and have never had any issues. Levi also LOVES the gnaws, and have cleaned his teeth exceptionally well.
My 2 French Bulldogs lick their lips at feeding time. Viva Raw is such high quality food. Shipping is super fast.
Our very picky absolutely Persians love Viva raw cat food! The quality of the product, plus the warm customer service makes me a very happy Kitty papa.
Tank has loved everything so far. I was super impressed with the duck! Well let's be honest... we love it all. Not to mention... quick shipping too 💕
Our animal really likes the rabbit cage and we will eat the chicken but really loves the rabbit mix.
I received my order of all the different proteins and a few different gnaws and my golden LOVES all of it! The quality of the meat is amazing too which is so important to me. I can tell these two really care about the quality of their products as well as the health benefits to all the animals who are receiving them! If you’re deciding on whether or not to buy from them, do! Also my package arrived rock solid frozen, and within 36 hours I believe! Maybe even shorter. Great expert
I've been feeding raw since 2002. Finding fresh and good quality rabbit has not been easy. Delivery was fast and very convenient because it gets delivered right to our house. Zevah, Raven and Sadie loved the ground rabbit. We are looking forward to ordering more in the future. Thank you.
We were new to raw and the simple but still complete blends from Viva Raw were a life savior! No need to measure the meat amounts because it was already done! Atlas loves it and it’s the main part of his meals!
I just started feeding her raw and she is more playful it like she a puppy again she is 4 years old now i give you 5 out 5 stars thank you
This raw food was so fresh!! The packaging fit great in my freezer. One of our dogs has been raw fed for 3 yrs, he loved it!! The other was transitioned to raw about a year ago and it taker her time to grow accustomed to new food. I will definitely order again!!
We have been trying various raw food companies for our poodle puppy. We love the story behind Viva Raw, and the customer service is excellent. There were some mishaps we had with delivery, and Zach resolved the problem so quickly. There was constant communication, which we appreciated so much. The quality of the food is AMAZING as well. We love being able to see the quality of food in the chunked formula, especially. Transparency is so important to us with what we feed our puppy. We have already placed our second order! Love Viva Raw!
These PMR grinds are a life-saver during the busy week! I love the transparency of the company and the quality of the food. Definitely a new staple in our freezers!
As someone with a rather large pet family, I so appreciate finding an affordable raw food company that I can actually feel good about supporting. Our rescue reptiles, cats, dogs, and ferrets adore Viva’s unique mixes (grinds or, unique to the raw feeding scene, chunks!) and I’m sure your carnivores or omnivores will too. Some picky monitor lizards have a rough time eating grinds, but with Viva’s chunk recipes you can feed a balanced meal- without dealing with whole prey for that feeding, wich is very helpful for recovering animals and wildlife rehabilitation.
Ferrets are notoriously hard to transition to raw, but we had immediate success transitioning kibble fed ferrets to raw on the first try, and I think what enticed them to try was both the texture and quality of Viva’s recipes. The product looks and smells good, seriously!
I’m really pleased, because we’ve struggled with other online retailers in the past, especially when it comes to packaging. VR’s packages do not leak when thawed which saves me a ton of cleanup time I could be spending on caring for the animals. What’s more; Viva is responsible with sourcing, care greatly about their product, and have excellent customer service. Thanks Viva, cheers from our Zoo to yours 🐾
We ordered 20 lbs and it arrived less than a week after ordering! Shipping was fast and food arrived solid frozen. The quality of the meat has been fantastic so far. We are looking forward to ordering more in the future!
I like that I can see the chunks of bone, muscle and organ. It reassures me that the food is fresh when I can see these individual pieces. I like the packaging. The container stands on the counter on its own, is easy to reseal, and the plastic is thick enough so that bone can’t pierce it. It NEVER leaks! This is important since I store my dogs’ raw food in the refrigerator with our own food. I like the shipping container. The food comes well-protected so the contents don’t leak and the packages are still cold when I receive the order. Thank you Viva Raw for such great quality!
As someone with 10 dogs, I'm always looking for sources of quality raw food to keep my guys fed. I found Viva Raw on a FB group and decided to give it a try. Order fulfillment was prompt, the dogs loved the food and it was reasonably priced. I do plan to order again and look forward to the continued growth of this company.
