The Bones2Go! Philosophy.
Bones2Go! carefully selects products that we believe best represent
our view of RAW feeding, healthy food and other products that
promote a healthy, fun and rewarding lifestyle for you and your
pet. We have hundreds of products to choose from and the best way
to experience what we have to offer is to visit the store. We are
currently working on an on-line shopping cart that will allow you
to order products directly from us. Hopefully this will be made
available soon. Check back to the home page regularly for updates
and news on the on-line store. In the meantime check here for a
summary of the types and brands of products we carry. You will also
find useful information and what to consider when choosing a food
or product for your pet. As always, if you have any questions give
us a call or send feedback from the feedback section of the site.
Frozen "Complete" diets.
A complete diet, for this purpose, is a diet that has been tested
by a laboratory and meets all AAFCO requirements for all stages of
life, for either dog, or cat nutrition. Most raw products are
tested to meet for cat and dog. These products are able to sustain
your dog (or cat) without any additional supplements or variety
offered, so in theory, you could pick one of the flavors offered
and feed solely that food and your dog or cat would be just fine.
Of course, your dog (and most certainly your cat!) will have
something else to say about that!
Complete diets are the most expensive of the pre-made diets. They
are generally more complex, in that they have multiple ingredients
enabling them to meet the AAFCO standards. They are generally
available in patty or nugget or medallion form for ease of feeding
and quick defrosting. They are easy to store and very user
friendly. Because of the need for quantity feeding of these
complete” diets, either for large/giant breed dogs or for multi-dog
households, some of the manufacturers are responding with bigger
packages of the complete diets. Currently Nature’s Logic and Paw
NatuRaw offer a 5lb roll and we offer case pricing (with mixed
products from the same line) to help reduce cost. If you have the
patience to divide these larger servings for smaller dogs, you can
save some money by exchanging the convenience of patties or
nuggets/medallions for some personal labor/time.Examples of complete raw diets at Bones2Go! arePrimal (Formula) , BarfWorld, Nature’s Logic, Paw NatuRaw
Frozen Supplemental” diets.
Texas Department of Agriculture requires that any food intended for
a dog or cat that is not complete per AAFCO guidelines must be
labelled as for intermittent or supplemental feeding only”. What
does that mean? Basically, that you cannot take one of these foods
and only feed one kind to your cat or dog and expect it to thrive.
There will be gaps in the nutritional profile and over time, your
pet will not do as well. Supplemental feeding is not a bad thing,
in fact, it is how we feed ourselves. We eat a little of this and
that every day and over time we meet our nutritional needs by
eating a wide variety of foods, and most of us do it without
supplementing our diets with vitamins and minerals. We could not
expect to eat a strawberry yogurt for every meal and expect to
thrive, however healthy the yogurt may be independently!
Examples of supplemental diets (ground) at Bones2Go! are Primal
(Mixes and Grinds). Supplemental diets are also created from parts
and pieces” - when you offer whole chicken necks, turkey necks,
lamb breasts and organ meats. We can source most kinds of meaty
bones, organs, muscle meats and veggies either in bulk or smaller
quantities depending on your needs.
Choices are a good thing for your pet. Hey, how would you feel if
you ate french fries for breakfast, lunch and dinner !
Choices range from Beef, Buffalo, Chicken, Duck, Emu, Goat, Lamb,
Ostrich, Pork, Quail, Rabbit, Salmon, Sardines, Turkey, Venison,
Yak and many more.
We also carry several lines of non frozen foods to make things easy
during hurricane season or when you are on the road with your pet
and don’t want to travel with raw. You should always have a
non-frozen supply of food available for days you forget to defrost
something for dinner or for you emergency supply kit when the power
We carry a wide variety of canned cat and dog foods including Weruva, Halo, ZiwiPeak, Evangers, Merrick and Tripett
. These foods are excellent for helping cats transition to raw food
if they are resistant to wean from dry food. They are also great
for short term feeding if raw isn’t an option (boarding, travel,
petsitter and so on). Many peopl
