Default Sojo Dehydrated raw food?

Has anyone heard of this or tried it? They have 3 varieties, 2 that require adding raw meat and one that includes dehydrated turkey in it. It definitely looks interesting as I would love to feed raw but am just not confident I would do it properly balanced. My dogs are currently on Innova Puppy and Evo low carb, would this Sojo be a better option for better nutrition??

Any info would be appreciated!

I would do Sojo if I couldn't balance raw properly. I think it's great and I've heard great things about it.

It's easier than doing actual raw too because all you need to figure out is how much meat to give the dog without having to calculate %veggies, %organ, %bone, etc. etc. etc.

I like it because by feeding actual meat the dog gets a lot of water. I'm always worried the dogs don't get enough water by eating kibble so I have a preference over food that is either fresh or needs to have water added.

I prefer Honest Kitchen to SoJos - I saw a lot of the veggies in the SoJos mixes come out the same way they came in and I'm not going to pay for stuff my dogs can't use. The HK seems to be ground finer and thus digests more fully.

If you're looking into freeze dried foods,Grandma Lucys would be another to consider. Boo eats is as a part of her diet and does well on it/like it. My cat is also on their cat formula, and after a few months of transitioning her to get her to eat it, she'll eat it and is looking good.
