Story:

We first tried Redbud’s Raw in 2010 when we discovered that our newest rescue dog Xander was sensitive to beef. We had always been fans of raw diets for our pets, but we were looking for something unique that we hadn’t tried yet. And when we discovered that Redbud’s was a Colorado company - that made it even better! All three of our dogs enjoy their Redbud’s to help keep them healthy and fit for their DockDogs competitions (well, not Xander - he is just the cheerleader because he hates anything related to swimming or water - unless it’s for drinking!). Harley and Kasey are both senior dogs who are still competing at a high level with dogs who are half their age or less! In fact, Kasey - who is 8 years old - has recently qualified for the DockDogs World Championships to be held later this year. We only feed our pets the highest quality food and with my background as a pet food industry retailer - we know what to look for! Thank you to Redbud’s for keeping our pets healthy! ~ Harley, Kasey, Xander of Team SplashDown!

Cartman

Cartman

Owner / Location:
Tammi / Littleton, CO

Story:

Cartman (named this because our townhome is in the Southpark subdivision) ‘adopted’ me when he was only 8 weeks old. He had just been found abandoned on the streets & brought to a pound in Denver. I had never had a dog of my own, so, from the moment we laid eyes on each other, (with his one ear floppy & one ear perked up) it was going to be our most excellent & challenging adventure. Cartman is a three & a half year old Italian Grey Hound/Chihuahua mix who is the four legged love of my life. He is about 12 pounds and , if he had spots, he would look like a miniature fawn! Cartman is definitely true to his Chihuahua breed, in that he is incredibly loyal to me, his is a bit high strung & quite a picky eater. His Italian Grey Hound shines through when he is outside running! He runs with the speed of a Grey Hound and the grace of a Gazelle! My hope is that, everyday, I can prove to him that I am the person he thinks I am!

Violet

Violet

Owner / Location:
Michelle / Ridgway, CO

Story:

Violet has been on some form of raw food for years, but none have attracted her attention (and appetite) like RedBud’s Raw. At 12 years old, Violet has the energy and vitality of a puppy; a diet of top-quality whole foods plays a big part in her health, as does daily swimming or hiking in the mountains. Keep up the great work!

Drake

Drake

Owner / Location:
Janet / Denver, CO

Story:

I just rescued Drake from an awful situation in South Dakota. I immediately started transitioning him from the Wal-Mart Blue dog food(!!??), to a combination of grain-free kibble and Redbud’s Raw. It hasn’t even been 2 weeks, and the gas has ceased, his poop has shrunk and solidified, (it’s all about the poop) and his coat and eyes are shiny and bright. Part of this is that he has landed in heaven with me, but the rest is Redbud’s Raw.

Quimby, a.k.a. The Bear

Quimby, a.k.a. The Bear

Owner / Location:
Meg / Denver, CO

Story:

Quimby is a Lhasa Apso turning 12 in November. He’s been on Redbud’s Raw for 8 days and it’s like you’ve got a miracle product. Quim’s a small dog and is aging well, but the energy that he has now…he scampers in the yard, he scampers on his walks…scamper, scamper, run! It’s amazing. He looks at us with intellect, conviction and energy. Thank you so much for your product. Also, it’s wonderful living in Denver and knowing the owner who tests each batch and obviously cares a lot for canines.

Yogi

Yogi

Owner / Location:
Cori / Denver, CO

Story:

When our Irish Setter Yogi left home for hunting school this summer, he was a star pupil.  Unfortunately, he was so preoccupied by the other dogs in training and missing life at home, that he lost his appetite.  No matter what was mixed with his dry food to “spice it up”, he wouldn’t eat it.  Finally, one day, we remembered that Yogi had tried a sample of Redbud’s Raw a few months back and loved it.  I called Redbud’s and told them we needed to replenish our supply STAT!  They rushed the delivery.  We brought it out to the ranch where Yogi was staying.  After two months of barely eating, Yogi finally got his appetite back thanks to Redbuds Raw!  He’s now returned home and happy again and eating Redbud’s Raw!

Lexie

Story:

Lexie has been eating Redbud’s Raw for several months now and is the healthiest she has ever been. At 9 years old, her weight is perfect and she has the energy of a 4 year old!

Red

Red

Owner / Location:
Jim / Denver, CO

Story:

This is Red, the company’s namesake.  I call him Redbud, because he is my buddy and I like nicknames.  (He calls me Jim, by the way). A rescue dog, he charmed me from the get-go and before long we brought him home to Colorado.  He’s been eating a raw diet for a year and a half.  Our vet commented how good he looked and asked me what I was feeding Red.  When I told him, he said, “keep it up, it’s working quite well.” 

Ana

Paula / Denver, CO

Story:

Ana has been eating Redbud’s Raw for over eight months.  The improvements in her coat, breath, eyes, energy, weight, and overall health have been nothing short of miraculous.  She thrives on Redbud’s.  It is the best raw dog food available.

Louie, age 16 weeks, has been eating Redbud’s Raw dog food since he was 13 weeks old and loves it. He has amazing Brain power!! Thanks for introducing us to this very healthy choice for our new puppy!

Sir Winston

Carla / Denver, CO

Story:

Winston LOVES his new chow… and it sure is easier than hacking up raw wings for his dinner! Thanks for a great product.

Dewey

Dewey

Owner / Location:
Jenn / Denver, CO

Story:

Dewey has been on Redbud’s Raw for 3 months now. He loves it- but we love it even more! It keeps his coat beautiful and shiny and eliminated any dry, itchy or flaky skin. He’s a little dachshund- only 9 pounds, so we watch his weight closely.

Redbud’s keeps him at a healthy weight, and gives him a ton of energy. We just divide the packages into tiny portions (Dewey only needs 2 ounces per meal) and defrost a few at a time, it’s so easy!

Abby

Abby

Owner / Location:
Jan / Denver, CO

Story:

Abby is a two year old standard size dachshund that has had eating problems since she joined our family nearly a year ago. To say that she is a “picky” eater is an understatement. We have tried every kind of commercial wet and dry food separately and in every combination imaginable. In fact, we had a dog trainer come to our house because we were concerned that Abby would not eat and was losing weight. The trainer suggested that we leave her food out for 20 minutes and then pick it up until later in the day when she might be hungry.

This method worked with some degree of success but not in any way we preferred. Then we were introduced to “Redbud’s Raw.” I was amazed at both the change in attitude and her eating speed. I timed her eating one day and it took her 14 SECONDS to eat (inhale) a complete bowl of Redbud’s Raw food. I’m sure that now that she has been eating Redbud’s Raw regularly, she has shaved off a few seconds of her eating time to achieve a new “personal best” at speed eating.
