Sojos Review


I've been feeding my dog, Maisy, the same dog food for 9 1/2 years now. She likes it, she likes anything really, and she gobbles it up as quick as she can {you'd think we were starving her}.

But for the past couple years I've wondered if what she is eating is really healthy.  I mean, I picked what I thought was the best choice of dog food. It's a popular brand and seems to be more healthy than some of the others. But is it really?

Maisy about 6 weeks old

I recently heard of Sojos. Sojos is a family-owned company that's been making wholesome, all-natural pet food and treats since 1985. They make several lines of raw pet food and all natural treats that are made in the USA with healthy grain-free (gluten-free) ingredients. 

I first heard of them when we reviewed their Peanut Butter and Honey Dog Treats. Maisy loved them of course. They are wheat and corn-free, made with no artificial preservatives, flavors or colors, and made with natural, human-quality ingredients. 

Last month we received some of their raw dog food.  They offer several varieties:

Turkey or Beef Complete Dog Food
A wholesome grain-free and gluten-free dog food that you simply combine with water.

Grain Free Dog Food Mix
Combine with water and your own source of meat to create a grain-free and gluten-free meal.

Original Dog Food Mix
Combine with your own source of meat and veggies to create your own fresh, homemade pet food.

I like the idea of the complete dog food where I don't have to add any meat to it, so I started with Sojos Beef Complete Dog Food.  



Since you have to introduce new dog food a little at a time, we decided to give it to her as a treat.

It's made with freeze-dried raw beef and other all-natural ingredients, so one pound rehydrates to four pounds of fresh, raw food.  This was a new concept for me, so I had to do a little research on their website, but it was simple.

Before adding water.  You can actually see all the meat, veggies, and seasonings.  No kibble here.

After adding water.  We gave her a little at a time and she loved it and gobbled it up!

Take a look at the ingredients in the Beef Complete - USDA beef, sweet potato, celery, carrots, cabbage, whole egg, flax meal, tricalcium phosphate, cranberries, papaya, pumpkin, rosemary, parsley, ginger root, dried alfalfa, dried kelp, zinc sulfate, vitamin E acetate, vitamin D3, vitamin A palmitate.

Sounds like something I would make for myself!!

And if you've never used a dog food quite like this, they have easy to understand feeding instructions or check out their FAQs on their website.


Find Out More:  You can find out more online at Sojos.  A 2lb bag of the complete dog food is $26.40. That will rehydrate to 8lbs.  And they offer FREE shipping on all pet food orders!  They also include a list of online retailers for you to shop at your convenience.
