Awhile back, we wrote an article about the benefits of feeding your dog raw food. Since then, we’ve had many questions submitted by eager dog owners, asking about recommendations for our most popular brands of raw foods for their pets!
Today, we’re going to introduce five outstanding brands of raw dog food that you can get in Singapore. These are based on what are frequently bought online, and we hope that this list will help canine pet parents be on their way to nutritional wellness!
1. Stella and Chewy’s
One of the newer brands of freeze-dried foods available, Stella & Chewy’s has been a huge hit on Nekojam since its launch in 2016. With a wide variety of flavours for dogs (and cats), each Stella & Chewy’s freeze-dried raw dinner patty is formulated to mirror a dog’s ancestral diet! There has never been a more convenient way to feed a biologically appropriate raw food diet. Stella & Chewy’s wide variety of food options guarantees:
- 95% meat, organs and bone
- Grass-fed, cage-free, wild-caught proteins
- 100% organic fruits and vegetables
- Fortified with added vitamins and minerals
- Enhanced with probiotics and antioxidants
- 100% complete and balanced dinner
- No grains; no gluten
This brand is only available in freeze-dried raw form. Feeding is as simple as adding warm water and allowing 5-10 minutes for rehydration.
(By the way, it’s worth checking out the review of Stella and Chewy’s Freeze Dried Foods for Cats and Dogs we did sometime back!)
Here are our pet parent picks:

So Which Raw Dog Food Is Best for My Dog?
We can’t place a preference to any one of them, as they all have their merits and they all offer the best kind of food source for our canine family member. If you’re new to raw food, however, you can look at the current flavours that your dog prefers and start by introducing them to it in phases. Does your dog have no preference? You might wanna try them all to find out what is best for your dog. At Nekojam, we have a full range of freeze-dried and frozen raw dog foods for you to choose. Give them a go and see which one your dog prefers!
