About our Freeze Dried Bites

Our Big Dog Freeze Dried Little Bites are delicious bites of raw healthy goodness using the same high quality recipes as the Big Dog raw diet range, only in smaller serve sizes and freeze dried for all the health benefits of raw nutrition with the convenience of dry food!

Available in 4 flavours, our Freeze Dried Little Bites are naturally complete and balanced so can be used as the primary source of your pets nutrition while travelling for convenience, or integrated into their everyday diet as healthy treats and toppers.

The convenience of bite-sized, freeze dried portions makes integrating raw healthy nutrition into your pets diet easier than ever before. Freeze drying is the best way to snap lock in all of the nutrients found in fresh raw food by instantly freezing the product, removing 70% of the moisture whilst locking in all of the micronutrients in the food. This allows nutrients to survive until rehydrated by eating or adding some room-temperature water and rehydrating into raw unprocessed healthy food! Just remember when not rehydrating freeze-dried food to have plenty of fresh drinking water available for your dog.

Some of the ways to integrate Big Dog Freeze Dried Little Bites into your dogs' diet are as healthy training treats, meal toppers, great for smaller eaters, use with mental stimulation toys and some slow feeding devices as well as for healthy gap feeding. The convenience of healthy raw food, freeze dried makes Little Bites perfect for travel with no need to refrigerate or freeze!
