Ooddles range of foods are highly nutritious. Using natural ingredients with carefully chosen vitamins and minerals, they are crammed with fruits, veggies & superfoods, and slowly cooked using our unique gentle steam cooking system. We use the finest "fresh meat" in our foods, ethically sourced from Uk farmers and fisheries. Your dog deserves quality daily nutrition, just like you do.
We have a higher meat content in all our dry food and wet food, and our Raw food is a complete food with added ground bone and superfoods. Complete raw meals mean you do not need to add anything. Many raw meals are not complete meals and you must add extra things to ensure your dog is meeting its daily nutritional needs.
All our food is grain-free and hypoallergenic, and we carry this ethos through into our treat and chew range too.
We have plenty of different recipes and formulations available, and our foods are suitable for all breeds, all sizes.
Raw, dry, wet, you decide what works best for your dog, not one way suits all.
Qualified professionals develop the Ooddles foods - nutritionists, product developers and vets - to determine the best nutrition possible. All our foods must be safe and go through rigorous testing. All our manufacturing partners are fully approved, and we are happy to work with our selected partners on our formulas to bring the very best foods for all dogs.
All our food has feeding guides on the actual product; we also list it on our website at each product listing.
Feeding guides are only a guide, it very much depends on the activity of our dog, all dogs are different, and you need to monitor the weight of your dog and correct it accordingly if your dog appears thinner, or overweight.
There is no fixed amount of food, but we can and do give you the average feeding per day, per product.
All our products are different, and all feeding guides reflect this.
To view all feeding guides quickly, you can find them at this link.
When we started making dog food back in late 2018, we did make it especially for the needs of crossbreed. Still, due to demand, we have undertaken further development to make our foods suitable for all breeds, all sizes, so every dog can now enjoy Ooddling.
We understand not one-way suits all, and Ooddles is all about bringing you high-quality premium dog food, no matter which way you prefer to feed your dog.
Our Raw food, we call it BARE Ooddles. It is a complete meal, with added bone and superfoods. We also have information for you to follow to transition from dry food feeding to Raw feeding.
Like all our foods, it is a premium quality raw food packed full of canine superfoods.
Some are 65%, and others are 70%, this is really high meat content for soft wet food, we see many with as low as 8%. Always check what you are feeding. Look at the ingredients on the label, and the first ingredient listed is the highest, and it will give you a percentage of meat.
Just like all our foods, our soft wet food is very popular, premium quality, grain-free, hypoallergenic and no fillers. Perfect to add to kibble, or your dog can enjoy as a complete food on its own.
No, DCM concerns are associated with those grain-free products containing high levels of legumes such as peas or lentils, other legume seeds, or potatoes listed as primary ingredients. The high level of legumes can cause a reduced intake of Taurine which can impede the cardiac muscles and cells.
Ooddles foods have high levels of human-grade meat; this would not deplete the levels of Taurine in a dogs system.
Your dog could gain weight; it is common for this to happen once your dog has been neutered/spayed.
Keep an eye on your dog's weight, reduce the food accordingly if you see weight gain.
Vets have scales available... but a good top tip is below.
Jump on your scales at home without your dog, make a note of your weight, then jump back holding your dog, and then subtract the two figures for you to know your dog's weight.
For all our dry food, we do yes, small 200g sample packs available at our shop.
How to transition to raw feeding.
There is much conflicting information about this, but we recommend you follow option 1, we call it cold turkey, however, if you feel (and you know your dog best) that you would prefer to do this gradually, then we cover this below. There is no right or wrong way, there are success stories on slowly swapping and success stories on the cold turkey.
Option 1 – Cold Turkey
Feed your dog the last meal of their old food the night before, leave it 12 hours and make the switch to raw dog food the following morning.
Option 2 - Slow Option
Gradually phase it in over 7 days. Increasing the raw and reducing your dry food.
Option 3 – Alternate
One meal is raw, and the other meal is dry. Then gradually feed more raw and less dry meals.
How will you know how they’re doing?
The best indicator is appetite. Many dogs will self-regulate on raw food (that previously wouldn’t on kibbles) because of the high levels of satiety.
Ultimately, you’re going to be looking at body condition. Look for a good covering of muscle over the hips, shoulders and back, and you should be able to feel but not see the ribs.
This is harder in a dog with a longer coat but familiarity with weekly grooming sessions will help you get to know your dog’s overall body condition.
If they’re starting to add an extra layer of internal insulation, then reduce the amount given daily until you reach a happy balance.
Remember, all dogs will vary in what they need, even though the seasons.
How to Feed
The night before, simply take out one 500g container from the freezer, put into your fridge to defrost, you should put the container inside a Tupperware container so no juices leak out for safety. Then simply put the food out for your dog, some may prefer to leave it in room temperature for 15 mins.
Food will last 4 days in your fridge.
How to store and handle raw food.
When defrosting the raw food put it into an airtight Tupperware container at the bottom of the fridge below any cooked food or vegetables. Same as how we store raw meat in the fridge.
Wash the pet’s bowls after every meal, in very hot water/dishwasher.
Wash your hands after handling raw dog food
Clean worktops, utensils, all surfaces and spills, using hot soapy water, if you use cloths, wash them in a very hot wash.
Remember this is no different to how you deal with raw meat juices in your kitchen at home, it has all the same risks.

What do I do when my frozen Ooddles Raw arrives?
You will have a DPD tracking number so you will know what time it is arriving. (You can change the time to suit you)
When it arrives at your home, unpack the box and put straight in the freezer. You can then take one 500g container of food out and let it defrost in the fridge. We suggest in a Tupperware box. Store it in the fridge as you do with normal raw meat. It will last in your fridge for 4 days after being defrosted. Please ensure you put it at the bottom of your fridge.
If the food has partially defrosted by the time you are ready to put it in the freezer, you can refreeze it safely as long as the food is still at 4c or below.
If it has reached room temperature it will keep fresh in a fridge for 2-3 days or 4 days from frozen.
We hold all our meals at -18c for at least 10 days before shipping.
Oode is the Ooddles dog.
He gets himself involved with lots of things.
You will see a note in your box asking you to check its contents. At times he sneaks into our warehouse and puts things inside customers orders, sometimes good and sometimes not. So we ask you to share at our Ooddles Facebook page, so we know what he has been up to.
You can watch his song here https://vimeo.com/474633086
Watch out via Ooddles social media for what else is going on with him and more songs! Share you dog to. Lots of fun.
