Variety is the Spice of Life: Sojos Wild Review

Many raw feeders, myself included, frequently mention the importance of variety in a dog's diet. There are many reasons for this, including:
  • Different protein sources contain nutrient and macronutrient profiles.
  • It can be mentally stimulating for a dog, and is definitely enjoyable for most dogs to be offered a variety of food.
  • You (humans) wouldn't want to eat the exact same thing everyday, would you?
  • Some dogs have allergies to common proteins such as beef, chicken, and turkey, so these owners are always seeking out variety for their dogs.
Sojos recently introduced Wild.  It is similar to other Sojos products, in that it contains freeze-dried meat and human grade fruits and vegetables.  What sets the Wild products apart is that the protein sources are "wild" and/or considered "exotic."  This new line includes free range venison, wild caught salmon, and wild boar.

These freeze-dried raw foods are also a great way for those who typically feed kibble to offer their dogs some fresh, raw food.  This is a complete meal, so there are no worries about balancing the diet, and these (along with other Sojos products) eliminate the "mess" that many people associate with a raw diet.

I am a longtime fan of Sojos, and jumped at the opportunity to try this new product out.  I selected the Wild Boar recipe for a few reasons.

My dogs have never had wild boar, by my choosing.  There is a slight chance of freeze-resistant parasites in fresh-frozen wild boar.  The freeze drying process eliminates any risk of that!  Another reason is because pork-based commercial foods are rare, and I think it is a great option for dogs who might be allergic to beef, chicken, or other common proteins. The final reason is that wild boar is a protein-rich, lean red meat.


Preparing this is as simple as preparing other Sojos products.  Simply measure out the appropriate amount of food and warm water, stir together, and let sit for 15 minutes to rehydrate and activate all the enzymes.


I love that the individual ingredients are easily identifiable.  Meat, peas, cranberries, etc.


It looks and smells pretty good when it is ready to serve.  Neeko was quite excited to be the initial tester here.





Anticipatory smile.
I am pleased and excited about this product.  Same stellar Sojos quality in a food that provides novel/exotic/wild protein sources.  For me, it is fun and enriching for my dogs to try new foods and different proteins.  For dogs fighting food allergies, these products could be a game changer.

As always, know your dog.  My dogs have no difficulties switching foods/proteins from day to day.  But each dog is different, and some dogs require an adjustment period when being fed something new or being transitioned from a kibble diet to a diet of fresh foods.  If new to Sojos, the company recommends transitioning over a 7-10 day period.

Try it out.  Your dog will be grateful.

I was provided with complimentary product.  All opinions are my own.
