Bravo Beef should I?
« on: March 21, 2015, 03:08:46 PM »
So the boys were sent a couple of 3 oz. single-serve, freeze-dried samples to try. It's this one:

So, I'm wondering. Do you all think it's safe to use now that I searched Bravo and found a bunch of recalls here in the board?

Check the labels against the recall information and see if the samples were part of any of the recalls.

FWIW, I followed their country of origin link:

Thank you so much! I can't see that this raw freeze dried has been in any of the recalls.

I like that most of the list is from the US. But I have to wonder about some of those other things like vitamins--did they really check to see that all those other countries obtained it from their own country? Or was it imported to those countries from China?

It's always such a conundrum the past few years.

@BravoPetFoods Who wants free Homestyle Complete? http://bit.ly/1FO8Hk7 

They really liked it. I'm going to put some in their emergency and RV food.  I'd say try using a few TBS less of water though. Maybe 3 tbs less.

I bought a Bravo Blend Beef frozen raw for Misa dog.  The vet office sells some frozen raw, so I figured why not.
Can't really say if she liked it or not, because she eats anything. 
This particular version has veggies, so I won't be feeding it to the cats.  Plus some of them barf beef, so none of them are fed beef.

I didn't find any percentage numbers for the amount of meat, organs, bones, and veggies.  :(  The instructions do say to add supplements.

Can you contact the company for the numbers?   :-\  I'm glad Misa ate it!
