An inside look at our manufacturing:
K-9 Kraving is a Complete & Balanced raw diet dog food developed by Boesl Packing Company and Animal Nutritionist Dr. Richard Patton.
Boesl manufactures with a difference, providing an optimally safe raw diet dog food:
- We only use proven high-quality ingredients that are stored at 8-degrees Fahrenheit on-site.
- Each and every 250-pound batch of K-9 Kraving raw diet dog food produced is carefully and accurately measured for continuity in quality, nutritional value and texture.
- We use a cold-manufacturing method; all raw food components consistently remain below 28-degrees Fahrenheit throughout the entire production and packaging process. Our team works diligently in a temperature controlled production area to avoid the onset of harmful bacteria.
- Only commercial grade stainless steel equipment is used to process and package frozen muscle meat, organ meat, ground bone and vegetables with our vitamin and mineral mix. To prevent cross-contamination, all equipment is sanitized daily and between producing varying protein formulas.
- Each complete batch of K-9 Kraving is transferred, on-site, for immediate packaging. K-9 Kraving is packaged into airtight chubs or vacuum packed patties, providing fresh tasting food for your canine companion.
