Our Story

It began with Daisy:

In the Summer of 2000, our nine-month-old German Shepherd, Daisy, was diagnosed with a malignant tumour. Daisy had persistent health problems since she was a very young puppy, including being severely underweight. She was immediately scheduled for surgery and the tumour was successfully removed. We struggled to understand why she was chronically ill. We began researching diet and the relationship to canine cancer and other chronic health issues.

After educating ourselves on natural nutrition and the commercial pet food industry, we no longer believed a processed food diet could be a healthy diet. Using local ingredients we created a balanced raw food diet for Daisy. Daisy’s cancer went into remission and never returned. Soon after, Daisy was a new dog. She achieved a healthy weight, her coat became thick and luxurious, her energy increased and her teeth and gums we clean and healthy. Daisy lived a long, happy and healthy life.

Daisy’s raw food diet eventually evolved into Totally Raw Pet Food. Totally Raw was created out of necessity because we wanted the best for Daisy. Our Mission is to share that with you.
