I was pretty nervous about placing my puppy on a raw diet, but I trusted VIVA. I truly appreciate the constant help with all the questions I had & my puppy loves it!
Most Excellent in Every Way
We have tried raw before and it was nothing like this! This is real raw, not a glop of gunk, you can see the chunks, love the convenient 2 lb packages. But most of all, my GSD went from never wanting to eat until he was so hungry, to being ready to eat every meal. He’s more excited than I have ever seen him at two years old. He is finally gaining some weight and filling out some.
Whole food ingredients, excellent quality, and amazing customer service. Everything arrived on time and completely frozen. Nino has been on raw but Viva Raw he eats enthusiastically. He loooooooves it!! Thank you Viva Raw for making a difference.
We're proud to be sourcing high quality, USDA human-grade ingredients from smaller farms. These are the same farms that stock your local Whole Foods & favorite restaurants. We only work with farms that never administer hormones & antibiotics (a huge step up from conventional) & are certified humane through third-party audits like G.A.P. or the American Humane Program. By not relying on chemicals, our farmers focus on providing high quality food and a clean environment to raise healthy, happy animals.
We grind, mix & package all of your pup's meals in our USDA kitchens. This means we're holding ourselves to the higher food safety standards required for human food. Everything is made in small batches (each package is hand-labeled & checked for quality) and tested for pathogens, because your pup deserves the freshest food from farm-to-bowl.
Feeding amounts are based on your dog's weight, age, and activity level. We recommend checking out our calculator to determine your pet's personalized feeding recommendations using Viva—we worked closely with our nutritionists & used the latest research to develop these!
On average, our food will cost $6-7 / day for a 30lb dog if you are feeding a variety of our proteins. To determine your exact costs, we recommend filling out our short quiz for your pup.
Nope! Just thaw and feed 🙌
Our food is Complete & Balanced for adult dogs. We worked with multiple vets & nutritionists to develop these recipes over the course of an entire year & lab-tested over 50 unique whole food ingredients in the process. This rigorous process at Viva is to ensure that our meals not only meet minimum nutrient requirements, but go above and beyond to improve the overall health of your pup with superfoods like shiitake mushrooms or mussels.
If you're feeding a puppy (< 1 year old), check out our Complete for Puppies instead for optimized nutrition during the growth stage! You can always reach out to our Nutrition Experts with additional questions.
If you're new to our food or have a picky eater, then we recommend getting Ground since it will be easier to to mix and portion. If you're comfortably feeding Viva, then we encourage trying the Chunked! Chunk sizes are 1-2 inches in size and are a great choice if your pet prefers more texture, for hand-feeding, or even if you're just curious what's in your pet's food! We've had pets of all sizes, including cats & ferrets do great on our chunky blend 💜
