Perhaps you’ve heard about freeze-dried raw food, but maybe you’re not sure why it’s such a big deal. Conventional cooking can reduce the bioavailability of amino acids, denatures peptides, alters flavors and aromas, and decomposes vitamins and fatty acids. Freeze-dried meat, on the other hand, retains its vitamin, mineral and fat content.
What’s more, freeze-dried foods keep without preservatives, additives or chemicals and often last longer on the shelf since freeze-drying decreases oxidation — which is what causes foods to go off.
Always looking for new ways to provide our animal friends with Canidae® goodness, we set to work creating safe, simple and delicious freeze-dried recipes that your pet will soon be salivating over.
Pure & Simple Ingredients
Our PURE line, for both dogs and cats, provides clean, limited-ingredient recipes with premium proteins. That’s why we’re welcoming Freeze-Dried Raw 3-in-1 Goodness to the PURE family: it’s packed full of premium proteins and always has three or fewer key ingredients.
Thanks to the awesome concept of freeze-drying, Pure Freeze-Dried Raw 3-in-1 Goodness is safe and minimally processed, meaning you’ll get more of the original nutrients that sometimes get lost when meat is cooked.
Three Delicious Recipes
Pure Freeze-Dried Raw 3-in-1 Goodness comes in three mouth-wateringly good treat/topper recipes. If your dog is hounding you for something tasty and nutritious, treat her to one of these.
Liver little or liver lot? We chose the latter. This game-changer is Canidae’s first ever one-ingredient recipe: 100% beef liver — that’s it. That also means that just like with the rest of Canidae’s recipes, there are no fillers or artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.

And if your feline friend feels like a treat, we’ve also launched Pure Freeze-Dried Raw Beef Liver for cats! Once again, this delicious recipe only contains one ingredient, 100% beef liver. It’s not just safe, but also delicious thanks to the freeze-drying process resulting in maximized nutrition and flavor. Your cat will be purring for Pure for days to come!
Our Pure Freeze-Dried Raw recipes are designed for supplemental feeding and shouldn’t make up more than 10% of your pet’s daily calories. Perfect for the fussy eaters out there, we’ve got flexible food that can be used in three different ways.
1. Mix in With Kibble
You can mix some of these delicious cubes with your pet’s favorite Canidae kibble. Just crumble, add a little water and mix. A small amount of Pure Freeze-Dried Raw food will go a long way — adding delicious flavors and aromas to your furry friend’s normal meal.
2. Use as a Topper
While some animals get a reputation for being simple creatures, as proud cat and dog parents we often feel the need to talk about the complexity of their characters. Now you can reflect the layers of your pet’s personality with layers in their food bowl: Use Pure Freeze-Dried Raw as a topper to their kibble and watch as they wolf down all that extra protein and crunch.
3. Give as a Treat
Whether you’re training your pet or just want to spoil them every now and again, it’s always a good idea to have some high-value treats up your sleeve — especially when just a sniff of these delicious recipes will have your good boy or girl wagging their tail in anticipation. Use Pure Freeze-Dried Raw as a treat they’ll love and you’ll feel good about giving!
We’re on a mission to create a world of sustainable goodness for pets, their people and the planet. That’s why, in an effort to reduce our carbon pawprint, all Pure Freeze-Dried Raw 3-in-1 Goodness recipes come in sustainable packaging. These bags are 100% recyclable and are made with recycled materials.
We know that transporting pet food has a big impact on the environment, so we make all of these recipes here in the USA, using the world’s finest ingredients.
The chicken we use for our Chicken & Brown Rice recipe is GAP certified, meaning it’s sustainably raised and transparently sourced.
We’re delighted to be launching these incredible new recipes, and we couldn’t be prouder to be doing so with Petco as a partner. That’s right, Canidae’s first ever Freeze-Dried Raw recipes are exclusively available at Petco.
