Raw Essentials was started in 2008 by Dr Lyn Thomson.

We help pet owners to feed their cats and dogs a species/carnivore-appropriate diet of raw meat, organs, tripe and bones.

We use the most ethically-sourced, highest-quality product possible: all sourced in New Zealand.

We offer a mix of nutrient-dense wild prey (processed in MPI approved facilities), and human-grade farmed product.

We now have 11 stores across Auckland, Hamilton, and Wellington.
