    I found a place that sell a few different brands of pre made raw food, I am looking at getting some from the brands The dogs butcher or DAF, but I looked up reviews and there where a lot of bad reviews for both of them. The dogs butchers reviews where about its costumer service not much about the actual quality of the food, is it good quality? DAF had reviews where people where saying it had too much bone or it was making there dogs sick I don’t know how they where handling the meats so I don’t know if that was the fault of the company or the person. Does any one have experience with these brands are they any good?

    When I buy prepared dog mince I use the Bulmers products. I find it a nice wet and fresh looking mince and the dogs love it ;). Good variety and a selection of "Complete" mixes too.
    I use "Davids Doggy Dinners" for delivery and supply. They have loads of different brands of raw, and special offers too, no order is too small.

    I don't know if this would be convenient for youo_O

    Bear in mind that the bigger the company, the more negative reviews there will be, and these do come to the fore when checking online - after all, people are far more likely to leave a review if they've had a bad experience than if their dog has been fine, and in many cases, the cause may well not have been the food.

    I find the cheaper mixes do look cheaper, whereas the more expensive makes almost look good enough to eat yourself. Whether that translates into the latter being better for the dog is another matter.

    I'm very happy with Nurturing by Nature. It's not the cheapest, but cheaper than a lot of brands: Raw Dog Food | Natural Dog Treats | Raw Cat Food | BARF Diet Often they won't have the range of mince mixes I'd really like, as they like to source it locally so it's seasonal - but it balances out over the year.

    For what it’s worth I’ve been using complete raw products from “Finer by Nature”. Mabel’s thriving on it. I understand that they do supply via online ordering. No idea how competitive the prices are. Never had a problem with Mabel’s poos (a regular Forum topic) since switching to raw. A positive review.
