BIXBI: Damn Near Perfect Dog Food For A Lot Of Reasons
We’re always looking to find dog foods that our dogs love, are good for them and are affordably priced. Our dogs’ health is important to us, and they’re family. That’s why we love the concept behind BIXBI products. Their dog food lines RAWBBLE and LIBERTY only use USDA inspected and passed fresh meat and never use meat meals or by-products. They pride themselves on being an affordable option for our very best friends.
Fresh Meat Vs. Meat Meal In Dog Foods: What’s The Difference?
Pet parents are paying closer attention to the labels on the foods they give their dogs. We’ve all been taught that the first ingredient is the ingredient that you should pay the most attention to—it’s in the largest quantity in the formulation.
What dog parent isn’t impressed with when the first ingredient in the food they’re feeding is meat? Dogs love meat, and we love giving our dogs what they love.
However, with most brands, fresh meat is followed by something called meat meal. You may think it’s just as good as meat, but what you may not know is that it’s really the waste products from the human food chain and meat not fit for humans (think diseased animals). Meat meal is typically made by taking the remnants of slaughtered, processed beef, fish or chicken and meat and poultry that has been rejected for human consumption for reasons outlined above, and cooking them multiple times with a high heat process. The resulting powdery, dry substance is what is added to your dog’s kibble. Because it is so over-processed and cooked at such high temperatures, it carries with it very limited nutritional value which is extremely hard for your dog to digest.
Meat meal is far less expensive than whole meat, fish or poultry. Fresh, whole meats are just that—meats that are not rendered (processed at high heat to remove the fat and water content). They offer your dog the opportunity to benefit the most from the meat’s nutrients, vitamins, and minerals. After all, why bother feeding your dog something that doesn’t offer them the complete nutrition you’re expecting it to? Meat meal is far less digestible than meat and therefore, you may be paying a pretty penny for your dog to fill the poop bag.
The BIXBI Difference: Healthy Dog Food That’s Accessible and Affordable
BIXBI Founder and CEO James Crouch grew up on a mushroom farm. Early on he learned to understand and appreciate the power of farm-fresh foods for humans. At the time, he didn’t give it much thought. But a few decades later, that knowledge and passion for healthy living were turned into an incredible line of organic mushroom supplements for cats and dogs. As he learned more, and their line kept growing, he realized BIXBI’s mission to give dogs the best nutrition needed to move them into the dog food arena. It was too hard to find clean, nutritious food that the average pet owner could afford, but their RAWBBLE and LIBERTY lines of food offer a non-negotiable main ingredient: whole, fresh meat.

RAWBBLE Dog Food: Real Meat For Dogs With High Protein Needs
RAWBBLE has been BIXBI’s flagship food line since its introduction to the market in 2017. Today it still remains a favorite of picky eaters and dog parents looking for high protein limited ingredient diets. RAWBBLE comes in two varieties: dry and freeze-dried.

LIBERTY Dog Food: Affordable Dog Food That Boasts Real Meat
The wild popularity and success of the RAWBBLE line led BIXBI to make healthy dog food even more accessible to dog parents across the country.
The LIBERTY line consists of six formulas—including healthy grain-inclusive, grain-free small-breed and puppy offerings. LIBERTY also only uses fresh meats carefully steam-cooked at low temperatures to preserve nutrients. They’re an affordable option for pet parents, and they’re still industry-leading in quality, ingredients and digestibility. Recipes include grain-free Beef, Chicken, Lamb, Fisherman’s Catch (trout & whitefish), Original (turkey, chicken & fish) and healthy grain Game Bird Feast (turkey, quail & duck) and Rancher’s Red (beef, lamb & goat) .
