Highly Recommend the Kanga for Cats
I have always fed my cats raw since they were kittens, mostly chopped up whole chicken and diced lamb with various organs and measured vitamins thrown in. I tried out Big Dog for Cats as I wanted to provide more variety to the kitties. In the past few months they tried all three of the turkey, rabbit and kanga recipes, and they loved the kanga.
However, they tended to vomit occasionally when fed the rabbit and turkey patties. I suspect this is because when rabbit or turkey meat is mixed with beef and organs of larger animals, it can confuse and disrupt the digestion system as compared to kanga meat which is more similar to beef (as discovered by research into raw feeding for cats). Of course this does not occur to all kitties - my friend’s cat would only eat the rabbit patties and won’t accept the others. So I guess it really is down to what your cat prefers and is suited to.
My routine now is to feed my kitties whole chicken chunks with organs in the morning so they can chew the bones, and kanga patties from Big Dog for dinner. I also place the thawed patties in warm water 10 minutes before I open the package so that they are closer to body temperature when fed to the kitties.

Dog loved it but..
My German Shepard pup absolutely loves it however it gives him the worst diarrhoea which is a shame because it’s so affordable and such good quality, might go back to it when he’s older

KAOS LOVES IT! For a fussy dog he destroys it in a heart beat !
I have a German shepherd called KAOS! He’s a very fussy eater and I’ve tried so many different things even RAW but he just didn’t like it until I got told about Bigdog. WOW what can I say he absolutely loves it! He’s now excited about breakfast & dinner because of the BIGDOG LAMB! Absolute_kaos1 Instagram !!
Big Dog Food for my furkids.
Best food I have ever fed my two dogs.
Rahni, my rescued Stafford (now sadly deceased) loved hers, as does my new rescued Stafford 'Nala'.
I will not buy any other brand of food for my furry kids.
Best thing for dog health EVER
After losing 3 of my beautiful Golden Retrievers to cancer over the years, I started doing research into canine nutrition, which came as an offshoot of adopting a Paleo style diet for myself. I became absolutely convinced most dry kibble is garbage and contributes to the alarming rate of cancer.
When we got Riley, we decided he would only eat raw, and we cane across Big Dog. He has been on it since 8 weeks old - fish based, and he loves it. His coat is lustrous and shiny, he has heaps of energy, and he’s a happy dog. He gets Big Dog fish treats and I love the freeze dried salmon bites for him. Will absolutely be feeding him this for the rest of his life.
I often brag about it on online Golden Retriever forums, and Americans are jealous we have such an awesome food.
Get it at Pet Barn
Yes my dog liked the food, BUT......some of the flavours gave him the runs, so I did not persue this raw food brand again because I was so OVER all his loss stools which was occurring about 2 to 3 days weekly and the vet couldn't find anything wrong so I put it down to the food, plus I didn't like the smell of the food itself.

This stuff is awesome!
The food has been awesome for my dog. She had some skin issues as a puppy and we switched diets from Hills kibble to Big Dog. It all cleared up in just over a week so we stuck to the food. She’s now 5 and is super happy and healthy! Never looked back! She has no issues with anything since then and her teeth have been great, we feed dried for her to chew on mainly as well.
I recommend this food to everyone! We had a vet tell us to try it and we can’t thank him enough!
My dogs inhale this food!
I used to make my dogs food which became impractical as they grew bigger. I went on the hunt for a commercial brand that most closely resembled the food I made for them myself (human grade ingredients, variety in proteins, variety in fruits & veg and no preservatives or cheap fillers). I was recommended to Big Dog by a friend and tried not be too offended by how much they loved it compared to my food. I needed to start using a slow feeding bowl so their meals lasted longer than 2 seconds! I follow Big Dog closely on social media and I like how much information they share about their food. My biggest concern when looking for a commercial food was trusting that my dogs nutrition wouldn't go backwards if I wasn't making their food myself. I've been using this food for over 18 months now and I'm so happy with this brand. I love that they have so many options for me to cycle through so my dogs never get bored and I'm confident that they are getting a varied, healthy, natural diet. Their coats are shiny, their weight is perfect and the vet always says "whatever you're doing, don't change it" when they have their annual check ups. Thanks Big Dog.
Big Dog Raw food for cats - the cat range is amazing!!
I feed my cat Big Dog Raw patties for Cats. His favourite flavours are Kanga and Turkey. I'm definitely crazy cat lady. I've grown up with cats. My parents and friends feed wet food and dried food. They're old, they're grouchy, their litter trays are SO stinky (it's awful!) and their coats are rough. Whereas my little boy is always full of energy, his poops never smell, his coat is so soft and he absolutely loves it!! I transitioned him onto it from wet food and dried food with no issues. Every now and then dad will sneak him some dried food and for the next few days his poops smell awful and he is very loud and naughty. As soon as it appears to be have cleared his system and his diet is back to just raw, he is back to his normal, not stinky, happy healthy self. I love Big Dog for cat and wish that everyone would take a chance to see the amazing before and after that I have for my pets overall wellbeing. I'm certainly impressed by the product and it's health benefits for my little furball.
Wouldn't go anywhere else!
We love these products! Our two bubs are both on the kangaroo patties but we do alternate flavours. We wanted to go raw but did not have the confidence to feed ourselves as I didn't want to miss out on any vitamins or ingredients they were not getting. With Big Dog, their coats are ultra soft and shiny and we regularly get complimented on it. Our pug has lost weight following their instructions which is fantastic! They also have a probiotic powder that you can sprinkle over the food. Our boy has a sensitive stomach and we use this and he has stopped vomiting. In fact, during a massive heat wave our labrador actually got a bit sick in the stomach and after adding the powder to her food stopped being sick. Now we use this for both our dogs and they love it!

Best decision we’ve ever made in regards to my furbaby’s health
My dog has gone from such a fussy eater to absolutely thriving on big dog pet foods and never leaving a speck of food left in her bowl. As such a high energy dog I struggled to find a food she’d actually eat to compliment her very active lifestyle and maintain her weight.
With big dog pet foods not only is she able to maintain a healthy weight she is absolutely thriving on it. We get comments all the time about how gorgeous and healthy she is and I put it down ultimately to her food. Dinner time is now her favourite time of day whereas it used to be a struggle to get her to eat. I can have peace of mind knowing I’m providing her the best possible life she could have.

Big Dog is the ultimate raw food!
My dog loves big dog raw food. He has had it since about 6months old. He loves the kangaroo and fish. But really he eats all of them. He eats it so fast we had to introduce a slow feeder cause he loves it that much. We top his food or treat balls or snuffle mat with the freeze dried bites and he goes crazy for them. The raw bites are a great addition on a hot day I just add them as a raw cold treat. Definitely recommend to anyone who wants to get their dog on a wholesome, healthy, human grade diet. My dog is a healthy weight, has healthy poos and doesn't pass stinky wind. Raw food by Big Dog is really the best thing you could do for your pup.

Our Big Dog diet is the key to my pups health
My two Frenchies have been on Big Dog since they were puppies and I wouldn’t trust any other raw food brand to feed them. I wa meticulius in my initial research checking the compny background, history, reviews, stockists and most importantly where they source their ingredients from. Big Dog was the most outstanding provider I found and I’ve never looked back. Their range is fantastic and meets all my pups needs. It is the greatest peace of mind knowing I’ve found the best meal k can for my pups. Thanks guys.

My dog went from constant weight fluctuations and bad wind to starting this food a few yrs ago. My dogs weight maintains at a steady healthy weight. Not windy. Scoffs it down. Great packaging. Ingredients are fantastic especially being human grade. Price is good for feeding 1 dog.

BEFORE using bigdogpetfoods raw...1 dog with pancreatitis, nearly died at 3yo(on vet pres food), I researched pancreatitis for 18 months, I found bigdogpetfoods raw/kangaroo, it SAVED his life, he's 8yo now, living, loving life, no flare ups......
I have a 2yo frenchieX dog, she loves her bigdogpetfoods raw, healthy, happy, satisfied..........THANKS for good natural raw food.
Good Well Balnced Raw Diet
I have always fed a raw diet, as it is completely natural, not highly processed like dried dog foods. I have made a home made balanced diet for many years, but will often buy some Big Dog when stuck for time, I board dogs in my home so home made can get time consuming. Big Dog although not as good as mine, is completely balanced, and I haven't found any dogs that won't eat it. Can't believe one review who cooks it and then said dog doesn't like it. It is a RAW food, not meant to be cooked
Excellent diet for my Schnauzer
My mini Schnauzer has had digestive issues including a serious case of pancreatitis. We were recommended to go to a raw diet, but I then found Big Dog Wellbeing frozen food in our Petstock store. She loves it, and she seems to be doing really well on it (2 months now) and no digestive issues.
My dogs wouldn’t eat it after six months.
I was happy to find this raw food available for dogs. At first my two small dogs ate it cooked and they ate it. They prefered Big Dog to even good quality dried food and supermarket sausage, so I was happy. But in time they became less enthused until eventually they refused to eat it - they would rather starve. In curiousity I tried eating it myself. It was inedible, very bitter. Sometimes it didn’t smell fresh when thawed too. I was shocked. So, sadly, I cannot endorse this brand.
My Westy loves all the flavours but I give him the kangaroo it's less fat
My dog loves all the flavours but I keep to kangaroo it's less fat wouldn't change a thing his skin even looks better.
