Our Story

It began with Daisy:

In 2000 we discovered our nine-month-old German Shepherd, Daisy, had a malignant tumour. We were shocked that a puppy so young could develop the disease and we wanted to know why. After tirelessly researching canine cancer, we were led to scrutinize the “high-quality kibble” we had been feeding her.

As we learned more about the kibble diet's health ramifications, we found the alternative that would save her life: raw, fresh food. Daisy’s cancer quickly went into remission after switching to a totally raw diet and undergoing surgery. To our surprise, her coat, breath, eating patterns and energy levels also improved. That change in diet gave her a happy and healthy life.

Totally Raw was born of necessity because we wanted the best for our pets, and our mission now is to share that with you.
