Please make sure when you are comparing Somerford Raw with other brands of raw foods that you are comparing apples with apples!
Our food is a premium product being that its only contains 100% human grade Australian ingredients, no preservatives, or artificial additives, is naturally complete & balanced, and always single protein, this means we don't mix cheaper meats into our mix, if you buy New England Beef you get only New England Beef, New England Beef Offal & New England Beef Bone, we don't mix it with cheaper proteins such as chicken or mix meat by-products.
We also offer a Protein Boost Range which has no fruit and veg added, we don't consider this to be a complete diet although there are many raw food companies that do sell a mix with no fruit and veg and consider it complete. This range is also single protein but lacks the additional nutrition & fibre that comes from adding fresh Australian Fruit & Vegetables.
We have seen the importance of not only providing a specific puppy formula, but the need for two puppy formulations.
The first for the very early stages of weaning and to support the rapid growth that a baby puppy has in its first 5 to 6 months of life, this formula is called “Baby Puppy”.
And the second for a slightly slower growth & the need to introduce more fibre & a wider range of proteins into the diet, this formula is called “Puppy”
We are the only Australian Raw Food company that does a Low Purine formulation, the reason behind this is that we have been approached by owners of dog breeds that need a low purine diet to come up with a formula specifically designed for them.
Due to a genetic anomaly, Dalmatians & other effected breeds normally lack the ability to convert uric acid. This condition is called hyperuricosuria (HU or HUU for short), meaning having excess uric acid in the urine. These dogs need to be fed a Low Purine Diet.
We also have Australia's largest range of proteins as feeding a variety is very important to provide a naturally complete and balanced diet as different proteins provide different nutritional vales. On top of this we also include free refrigerated delivery to your door.
Somerford Raw & Natural is manufactured in Australia, a premium raw food using only Australian premium quality ingredients, we set out to make Australia's leading raw food & we are proud to say that is what we have achieved !
