Why isn't Eastern Food Therapy more widely adopted by dog owners?
Home cooking is time-intensive! 

It involves: 

  • Evaluating the energetic of each ingredient
  • Evaluating the quality of each ingredient
  • Following the correct ingredient proportions
  • Making sure the formula has the right overall energetic for your pet's constitution
  • Scouring grocery stores and farmer's markets for¬†hard-to-find organs¬†
  • Searching for the perfect calcium supplement
  • Actual cooking time: leaving slow-cooker on for 8 hours or more depending on whether you are cooking bones
  • Cleaning up the dishes and the mess

After all that, you have to make dinner for yourself and your family, too!

There aren't always enough hours in the day. 

Luckily, food therapy can be easy, and it helps all pets live longer lives.

  • My dog is a fire and wood dog and seems to need always cooling down . He needs cool foods. But he is also a service dog for my food allergies and celiac. He can not have wheat, barley, or rye. Does chill have anyone of those three ? He cant have chicken, lamb, and venison because of needing cool foods.

    Thank you for your question! PET | TAO Chill Freeze Dried Raw Formula contains barley. But, we have another option for you! If you'd like to make a version of the Chill recipe at home in a slow-cooker, you can omit barley and choose other ingredients that agree with your fire and wood dog. Here's a link to the recipe:

  • I have a 10 year old Wired Haired Fox Terrier, Dylan. He has kidney issues and has had pancreas issues . He has currently lost strength in his hind legs and paws , some muscle atrophy as,well. He loves your kidney treats . Would like to introduce your food as well. Any recommendations ? Fyi he has a sensitivity to chicken and grains . Beef or turkey are his current proteins. Thanks so much

    Thank you for your question! Kidney issues are often supported by energetically cooling diets in Eastern Food Therapy. You're on the right track by feeding PET | TAO's kidney treats - they support the kidneys according to the Five Element Theory. We recommend using PET | TAO's Chill formula because it's energetically cooling overall. The main protein is duck, which is coolinng. For dogs with kidney issues, we recommend hydrating the freeze dried food with warm water to provide extra moisture. Also, there may be herbs that can help your dog! You can check with your vet and request authorization here if you're interested:

  • I have a dog who is 14 yers old, He has kidney stones and he also has cushings. Would this be something I could feed him?

    Thanks for your question! We have a number of products that can help support dogs with Cushing's disease. TCVM veterinarians usually recommend energetically cooling formulas for Cushing's. These diets may help support kidney issues as well, especially when rehydrated with warm water. Also, Freeze Dried Kidney Treats can support kidney issues. There are also herbs available for Cushing's that can treat the root causes and deficiencies that lead to Cushing's symptoms. These herbs have to be authorized by a vet, but all PET | TAO foods, treats, and supplements do not require authorization.

  • How long would a bag last my 105 pound dog?

    Thank you for your question!

    105 lb dogs need 7 cups of food per day. Each bag contains roughly 8 cups of unrehydrated freeze-dried raw dog food and depending on how much water you use to rehydrate.

    The amount of food consumed will vary based on breed, age, activity level, and environment. Many people with big dogs use freeze-dried food as a treat or topper since it comes in nuggets. It's often cost-prohibitive to feed a large dog for his entire diet.

Pet | TAO Chill Freeze Dried Formula

It's ok- I LOVED the Pet| TAO Harmony Food so much better! And I wish your web-site provided more information about what the Chill vs. the Harmony vs. the Blaze food is good do you know which is best for your pet?? Thank you!

Good substitute

I’m having to substitute this formula for the Harmony freeze Dried food, which has been unavailable for over a month. It’s a little lower in protein and a little higher in fat, which I don’t prefer, but my dog loves it just as much and it’s still PET TAO, which is important to me.

Likes at times

My dog is very old and has leukemia. I tried this and some other treat type things like the spleen and the kidney to try to stimulate his appetite. Occasionally, he will eat this food.


My Murphy loves it!
