A time tested way to naturally preserve meat, air-drying food is a slow and gentle process that eliminates bacteria while protecting proteins, vitamins, nutrients, and enzymes essential to your pet's complete and balanced diet. Air-drying is between that of freeze-drying and dehydrating. Similar to drying jerky, the process only consists of gently removing the water. A slow process that maintains the foods nutrients. Packing more punch than traditional kibble, your pet will love Paw Naturals selection of high protein air dried foods such as our top selling Ziwi Peak.
