A raw diet is one of the best ways to fulfill cats’ nutritional requirements. There are numerous benefits from feeding a raw diet, including improved digestion, reduced stool odor and volume, increased energy, ability to maintain ideal weight, better dental health, and better urinary tract health.

Embraced for decades by holistically oriented pet parents and holistic veterinarians, more pet parents are looking to raw feeding as an alternative to feeding highly processed food.

About Raw Paws Pet Food

Raw Paws’ mission is to make it practical, affordable, and accessible for pet parents to provide their furry family members with the healthiest pet food, treats, chews, supplements and more.

Raw Paws Signature Blend Complete Turkey

  • Made of 80% muscle meat, 10% organ meat, and 10% ground in bone
  • No veggies, fruits or other fillers
  • No artificial ingredients
  • Always fresh – small batches are made weekly
  • Sourced in Indiana from turkey raised without antibiotics, steroids, or added hormones
  • Made in a licensed and inspected facility with strict quality and safety standards and protocols
  • Stored at 0° F in their freezers, delivered frozen in an eco-friendly foam cooler with dry ice

This blend, even though labeled for both cats and dogs, contains appropriate levels of naturally occurring taurine for cats, who have higher taurine requirements than dogs.

The food comes in 1 pound rolls and 8 ounce patties. One portion for Allegra, who weighs 10 pounds, is 2 ounces, so one roll lasts for 4 days worth of meals, a patty for 2 days. It also comes in 3 pound rolls.

Putting Raw Paws Signature Blend Turkey to the test


One pound rolls

The one pound rolls arrive frozen solid. If you’re not going to use the entire 16 ounces in a couple of days, you can partially thaw and then refreeze the portion you’re not going to use. After defrosting in the fridge for about 12 hours, a roll was soft enough to cut in half, and I re-froze half of it and let the remaining 8 ounces thaw for another 12 hours.


Eight ounce frozen patties

The frozen patties arrived in one big 4 pound bag, separated by wax paper. Raw Paws recommends partially unfreezing, then separating the patties and refreezing what you don’t need. I transferred each patty into a separate glass container to freeze.

Raw Paws ground turkey does have bone ground in, but I did not see any visible fragments (something that has been an issue for me with some other brands in the past.) I like that the food contains no veggies or other fillers.

Allegra loves this food! There was no hesitation, as soon as I offered it to her, she dug in and cleaned her plate.

8 Comments on Review: Raw Paws Signature Blend Turkey Formula

  1. i used to feed raw to my dogs, my middle child would not eat it. Someone gave my now oldest, raw venison, it had e-coli in it, which led to hepatitis, now she has liver disease. she had to have several lifesaving surgeries, immediately. It got in her mouth, but was near her eyes, so nothing could be done so I just have to keep an eye out if her face swells and she gets antibiotics. She has almost died several times because the liver enzymes got too high, even though she is on meds. She is on a restricted homemade diet. she has developed several other problems caused by the hepatitis. she started having seizures, which caused her to develop disc disease because the seizures were so bad. she also now has diabetes insipidus. Luckily, I see a homeopathic vet, who will try Chinese herbs and other remedies before using prescription meds. I am sort of leery of frozen raw at this time. I do feed freeze dried raw to my other girl.

  2. Good morning! I am interested too see if these companies can send out samples my cats are very picky!

  3. Thank you for reviewing. I’ve been feeding my cats the same, complete nutrition raw food for about 4 years. I trust the company. My cats are doing very well. One cat had stomach issues when I adopted her. That cleared up as soon as she switched over to raw. (It was amazing.) I have a couple questions. Is this a complete nutrition food? I don’t see added minerals or vitamins in the ingredients. Also, Taurine is added to my trusted source of raw food, so I’m wondering about that as an added ingredient. Is naturally occuring Taurine enough for their required amount? Is that a dumb question ? (Lol) I’m skittish about trying a new food, since they do well on their current, but I’m curious too.

    • This is a complete food, Sue. Most likely if the brand you’re feeding now is adding taurine, it’s because the percentage of organ meat in their formula does not meat the taurine requirements, so they also add a supplement. Nothing wrong with that, just a different way of formulating. I hope this helps!
