Build A Box Shopping
Welcome to a new shopping experience on Raw4Paws-Sussex! Our traditional online shop is still running but we are now in the position to give our wonderful customers a chance to create their own product boxes. Build A Box allows for the creation of a bespoke delivery of small quantities of our range of raw foods for pets.
The shop is split into product ranges, such as Mince, Bones & Chews. This enables the creation of a box that will contain your pet’s favourite foods, for example: 454 grammes of Chicken & Liver Mince and a special treat of 330 grammes of Beef Paddywack.
Simply visit the relevant sub category to add a product to build your box. To create the example in the previous paragraph, visit the Build A Box mince section to add the Chicken and Liver Mince, then the Build A Box Offal, and finally for your dog’s treat, visit the Build A Box bones and chews section.
To place one item in you cart simply click the “ADD TO CART” button (you can add more than one by clicking on the icon to view the product in full).
Build A Box gives you the opportunity to vary your pet’s raw food diet, you can add a variety of mince products in smaller quantities rather than the 14 servings you would get if you purchased Chicken & Liver Mince via the traditional shop.
Boxes at capacity hold either 28 blocks of mince, or 20 blocks and 2 × 1kg bags.

Conventional pet food or BARF – the comparison
Commercial pet foods, dry foods in particular, often contain a large amount of grains, which we believe are inappropriate for carnivorous dogs and cats. Because cats are obligate carnivores, it is believed that a switch to a predominantly meat based raw diet would be especially beneficial (as compared to a raw diet for dogs) due to cats’ relative inability to digest grains.
Introducing pups and adult dogs to a raw food diet
Though some owners can switch their dogs’ diet without a problem, we feel the best way to make any change of food is to do it gently. We wean pups onto raw with exactly the same method as we advise to make the change – old food for one or more meals, and green tripe for the other meals for a few days, increasing the tripe at a rate that suits the dog, and decreasing/phasing out the old food.
The next step is to introduce new proteins, one at a time, and encourage the dog to chew, which is a more natural way for them to eat. We gently introduce each food, then onto boned mince, then with offal, then onto boned products.
Using this method, we’ve gently alter the ph level in the dogs’ tummy to a more natural state, where they can properly process and digest bone efficiently.
Dogs need meat, bone and offal, with the proportions of 80%, 10% and 10% in general. This ratio doesn’t require measuring for each meal, as long as everything is balanced over a few days. Dogs also need oily fish, an occasional egg (with shell), perhaps some fruit and vegetables, and other supplements if required. A transition to raw will generally take between 10 days to 3 weeks, and Raw4Paws-Sussex are here to help through the process.
Physical and Behavioural Benefits of Biologically Appropriate Raw Feeding
It is absolutely without doubt that the saying “as fit as a butcher’s dog” is spot-on, a raw meat diet, with bones and offal, is the perfect blend for optimum health in dogs, cats, ferrets etc.
