Colorado Top Dog and Mile High Raw offer the best raw dog food available today. We avoid high pressure pasteurized products. Also, processed pet food.

Undesirable Raw Dog Food Options

Further processing through cooking, extruded pellets (dry dog food/kibble), or cooking through pressure degrades dog food products’ nutrition. These processes also diminish palatability. Dogs would choose a wholesome, raw meat dog food over any high-pressure pasteurized product available side by side. If otherwise, your dog is conditioned to an inferior quality product and doesn’t receive the nutrition level they deserve and require for healthy existence.


The HPP process quickly degrades your pet’s end product. In our experience, there is a loss of nutrition, lipid oxidation, and phthalates likely transferred, and dangerous spores are still alive post pasteurization. How is this the logical choice for dog food products? These products can also be considered organic. The only natural occurrence of this much pressure occurs far beneath the surface of the ocean. Think about the deepest parts of the sea. We can barely visit these places with today’s technology. Therefore, how can this be a logical solution for processing dog food? Not to mention being labeled as organic dog food. Make smart choices for your dog. Choose an authentic, wholesome raw dog food. These are the only products that our shop carries. Offering good nutrition for your dog is the cornerstone of optimal health. A few months of good nutrition, and you’ll never go back to processed pet food. Visit our online shop
