Why Freeze-Dried Raw?

Most commercial pet food is cooked at high temperatures — which can destroy many of the nutrients.

Dr. Marty’s is gently freeze-dried. This helps protect the nutrients that help keep your pet trim, active, healthy and happy.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between Nature’s Blend — Essential Wellness and some other store-bought dog foods?

Nature’s Blend is:

  • 81% REAL premium cuts of meat… because a high-protein diet can support your dog’s active playtime, vital organs, and healthy lifespan.
  • FREE from artificial preservatives and synthetic vitamins and mineral powders… We naturally keep our food fresh — that way, your dog can easily absorb the nutrients from REAL meat, veggies, fruits, and seeds.
  • Minimally processed, not blasted with high heat… We freeze-dry our food so it’s full of nutrients, bursting with savory flavor, and has a fresh, irresistible texture.
Is grain-free food ok for dogs?

Dogs need a diet rich in taurine, an amino acid found only in meat, to thrive.1

However many commercial foods are packed with ingredients like tapioca and white potatoes. These ingredients contain very little taurine.2

That’s why the first five ingredients in Nature’s Blend are premium cuts of real turkey, beef, salmon, duck, and organ meat. This supports your dog’s healthy heart and youthful vitality.

Of course, it’s always a good idea to talk to your veterinarian before starting your dog on a new diet.

Why is this formula freeze-dried?

Most dog food companies cook their food at high temperatures, which can destroy many of the nutrients.

Instead, we gently freeze-dry Nature’s Blend — Essential Wellness to help protect the nutrients your dog needs and the delicious flavor they love.

Does each dog breed need a different dog food?

Nope! We designed this formula to help dogs of all breeds live a long, healthy, happy life.

How do I serve Nature’s Blend — Essential Wellness to my dog?

If your dog likes dry food, Nature’s Blend is ready for them to enjoy the moment you scoop it from the bag.

But if your dog prefers wet food, it’s easy to prepare. Just combine 2 parts Nature’s Blend with 1 part water. Then let the food sit for 3 minutes before mixing it up and serving it to your eager pup.

Do I need to refrigerate Dr. Marty Nature’s Blend — Essential Wellness?

There’s no refrigeration necessary! Because Nature’s Blend is freeze-dried, a bag will keep for up to 3 months in the pantry after it’s been opened, so there’s no need to make space in the fridge.

Not to mention, the bags are extremely lightweight and they zip to seal, so they’re easy to store (and there’s no need for bulky food containers.)

What is the complete ingredient list for Nature’s Blend?

Turkey, Beef, Salmon, Duck, Beef Liver, Turkey Liver, Turkey Heart, Flaxseed, Sweet Potato, Egg, Pea Flour, Apple, Blueberry, Carrot, Cranberry, Pumpkin Seed, Spinach, Dried Kelp, Ginger, Salt, Sunflower Seed, Broccoli, Kale, Mixed Tocopherols (natural preservative)

What if Nature’s Blend doesn’t work for my dog? Is there a guarantee?

Absolutely. As a veterinarian, I take canine nutrition very seriously. So if you don’t see a noticeable improvement in your dog’s health and happiness, you can send back the unused portion of Nature’s Blend (or the empty bags) any time within 90 days and I’ll return your purchase price.

Where do I buy Nature's Blend?

Right here on our website! It’s the best place to stock up on your dog’s food or subscribe to automatic monthly shipments.

Or if you prefer, you can also shop in stores! Nature’s Blend is now available in more than 3,000 retail stores in the US. Use our store locator to find a store in your local area.

  1. 5 out of 5 Half his age!

    Wendy

    I have been feeding my Japanese Chin Dr. Marty’s food for the past four years. Today, at 11 1/2 he had his yearly senior wellness exam and the vet stated he presented as a dog half his age. He is certainly playful, healthy and happy, and I think Dr. Marty’s food has made the difference.

  2. 5 out of 5 Amazing Product

    Cindy Hathaway

    I have seen how much my two dogs love this product. In addition, I have seen how it affects their ability to move. My Aussie is almost 14 but sometimes acts like he’s much younger with his running and jumping. My Great Pyrenees runs more than she ever did, and that’s a lot for a dog who was raised to sit on a hill overlooking herds of goats or sheep for predators! (They are both rescues and have a little blending of other breeds, but I mentioned their main lineage.)

  3. 5 out of 5 Amazing!

    Pattie Freeman

    My Afghan hound liked his other food but as soon as I started him on Dr. Marty ‘s he went on a food strike and wouldn’t even eat his other food. All he wanted was this so I had to feed him in full and not just as a topper so now I’m re-ordering ahead of time because he loves the food so much and I feel he’s not so hungry.

  4. 5 out of 5 Finicky eater

    Wendy Jo Ohnstad

    For three years, I’ve had trouble getting my Standard Poodle to eat anything! I started him out slow, and now he loves this food and eats right to the bottom of his bowl every time.

  5. 5 out of 5 My shih Tzu loves this food

    Tammy

    We started this food a couple months ago to give our 1 1/2 year old shih Tzu what I feel like the best quality of food. She loves it and first thing in the morning she is waiting as patiently as possible for it to be ready for her. It is worth the extra cost to give my dog food that will be so much better for her health

  7. 5 out of 5 This stuff is great!

    Melodie Lynn C Stillwell

    I open the bag of dr Marty’s and my 4 shih tzus go crazy. They try to eat it out of my hand! It helps them digest their food so much better. My daddy dog had constipation problems and this food used as a topper, really helps him! It’s put a pep in my mom dogs 13 year old step for sure! Thanx Dr Marty’s!

  10. 4 out of 5 Good for my dog

    Jeanne

    My dog is 17 years old. He has a good appetite, but at first he would not eat Dr. Marty’s blend. Once he has a taste though he will go back and finish it so thank goodness he’s enjoying it. And I’m glad that it’s good for him as well.

  11. 5 out of 5 She loves it

    Tinker Cox

    At 5 months old my Havanese Baby Lee had been eating freeze dried and raw food all of her life, picking at everything except raw meat and completely rejecting pieces of vegetables . The first day I gave her Dr. Marty’s Natures Blend to see if she’d eat it she ate the whole thing, all of it, nothing left . When I mix Dr Marty’s with her perfectly healthy familiar brand of freeze dried food, she eats all of the Dr Marty’s and leaves the rest which she may or may not pick at the rest of the day. We have a winner!

    John Notarianni

    My Golden, Louie, loves Dr Marty’s. I place one handful in a small bowl with water – microwave 22 seconds. Mash fork — makes nice gravy. Adds to his kibble. YUM😛

    Janet DaCosta

    I tried so many different dog foods with my finicky dog. He would barely eat any of them. He wouldn’t eat Dr. Marty’s in the beginning but then slowly started eating it and now eats it without trouble. Thank you, Dr. Marty!

  17. 5 out of 5 Great product

    Sharon Cross

    While I cannot feed my 2 hooligans only this food, I do use it as a topper and they absolutely love it. I have put in on in the dehydrated state and I have also soaked it in warm water and then mixed it in with their food and their noses stay in the bowl until it is clean.

  19. 5 out of 5 Awesome

    D Bray

    My dog Louie became spoiled by people food! We started allowing him to lick our plates clean and added people food to his dog food. He started to gain weight so we tried to get him back to eating his food only! He would go days without eating and I would give in and add broth or something to his food. I tried several brands of food that he still would not eat till Dr. Marty’s freeze dried Nature’s Blend!! He loved it right from the start! It also has made him so energized! Thank you Dr. Marty!

    Capone Cooke

    My Capone is a finnicky eater but he has No problems eating your nature’s blend dry food. He nibbles on it through out the day and evening. He acts like it gives him energy and keeps him satisfied. Thank you, Cooke
