Raw food from our family to your's

👋 Hi! We’re Zach & Jenn, and this is Karoo, our extremely spoiled girl.

Both of us had multiple pets in the family when growing up, and we witnessed firsthand the detrimental effects of kibble-based diets. We were committed to keeping Karoo as healthy as possible & fell in love with raw feeding immediately after researching & starting the diet.

However, things weren’t so rosy behind-the-scenes. 😫

We both worked 9-5 jobs & ended up creating crime scenes in our kitchen during weeknights in order to keep her on a fresh & real diet.

So, we began trying pre-made raw foods… but everything just looked like mush and came in chubs or sausage rolls and were just so messy to feed! Furthermore, we too, were victim to purchasing denatured and lower-quality meat as a result of suppliers just not telling us everything 😞

So we decided to change it all.

We’re pet owners, just like you, who got fed up with the lack of transparency when it came to pre-made raw foods. We’re committed to telling, and most importantly, showing you what’s in the food that we make for your pets.

We’re the only company that’s producing a chunked food for your pets, because we believe it’s important for pet parents to see what they’re feeding.

So... what IS the Viva Magic?

HIGH QUALITY INGREDIENTS

It all starts with the sourcing. We always use 100% human-grade ingredients, sourced from the same farms and retailers that would stock your local grocery store or serve up a fancy cut of duck breast at a restaurant. We don’t cut corners here, because your pet doesn’t deserve any less.

ALWAYS SMALL-BATCH

The magic all happens within a commercial kitchen—where we are the first and only pet food manufacturer in the space. And you better believe we’re proud of it. As a result, we are holding ourselves to the sanitation standards required for human goods 100% of the time when we’re producing your pets’ meals.

Everything we do is in small-batch, because your pet deserves guaranteed freshness from our hands to… their mouths. To this day, we’ve never kept anything in our freezer for longer than a month before it’s shipped off to your pet’s freezer! Now THAT’S fresh.

CHUNKED

Yep. You read that right. That’s some SAT-vocabulary that other raw pet food companies just don’t have.

We want it to feel like you’re feeding your pets a meal that you would DIY for them—so we chunk everything (other than bone, which is always ground) to make sure you can see the different cuts of meat & organ that you’re getting within the mixes.

 How do we do it? Picture Jenn with a gigantic cutting board wielding two serious butcher knives. Pet have a picky palate? Don’t worry, we produce a ground version too :) 

We’re the good kind of different, and we hope you like that.
