Are BIXBI Dog Food and Treats Really "Damn Near Perfect"?

By Anton Hout, author of The Guide to Aussie Training & Care

Disclosure: We received review samples of BIXBI RAWBBLE Beef Recipe and Pork Recipe. This in no way affected our review of their products, which is based solely on our research and evaluation of the quality of their products.

BIXBI dog food and BIXBI treats are causing a stir among pet owners, handlers and trainers and with good reason. They are all sourced and created in the USA with only the freshest of ingredients and are designed to provide the maximum protein while also maximizing digestibility. There's little wonder why the company touts its products as "damn near perfect".

Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM) Notice

DCM is a heart condition that has been reportedly linked to certain low carbohydrate dog foods. However, the FDA has still not confirmed a specific cause and its latest study is also inconclusive. As such, at the time of this writing (July 16, 2020) there have still not been any recalls. For further information see: FDA, Dog Food Advisor article, and an article by Daniel Schulof, the founder and CEO of KetoNatural Pet Foods, Inc. addressing potential Bad Science and Financial Conflicts of Interest Plaguing the FDA's Investigation Into "Grain-Free" Pet Foods and Dilated Cardiomyopathy.

So what is all the buzz about and does this brand really stand out from the pack? It seems that every time you turn around lately there is another company claiming to make the best, healthiest and most nutritious dog food. With that kind of competition it's hard to get noticed, but BIXBI isn't having that problem. With their food, treats, and even a line of BIXBI supplements, they are truly making a difference in terms of canine nutrition.

BIXBI targets not only dogs but their owners, catering to discerning owners who are bothered by the large amount of artificial ingredients found in most traditional food. They believe in cutting through all of the excess and focusing on the most healthy ingredients, including real meat, naturally caught fish, vegetables and other natural ingredients. BIXBI dog food, like all of their products, is also loaded with vitamins and minerals guaranteed to have a positive impact on your dog's health.

The Two Lines of BIXBI Dog Food: LIBERTY and RAWBBLE

There are two lines of BIXBI dog food: LIBERTY and RAWBBLE. Both emphasize digestibility and whole food nutrition using a limited amount of ingredients so you have no question about exactly what your dog is eating. Both lines have dry dog food, while LIBERTY also has wet food and RAWBBLE offers a unique line of freeze dried foods for added variety. Both lines are made from fresh meat and never use meat meals, which lack in nutritional value. They can be used in conjunction with BIXBI treats for a healthy, flavorful experience.

The LIBERTY line is the most affordable fresh meal kibble available and offers a variety of flavors, including beef, chicken, fish and lamb as well as special flavor blends "Game Bird Feast" and "Rancher's Red". Although all BIXBI dog food is balanced for every life stage, LIBERTY does have a special formula for puppies as well as kibble designed specifically for smaller breeds.

In contrast, RAWBBLE offers a unique alternative that is slightly more expensive due to its freeze-dried raw coating. RAWBBLE also has an extraordinary protein digestibility that averages over 90%, a claim that is almost unheard of in other brands. RAWBBLE offers dry food in beef, chicken, duck, lamb, pork and turkey as well as freeze-dried dog food in beef, chicken, duck, lamb, pork, turkey and a chicken and salmon blend so your dog will have plenty of variety.

Another exclusive offering from Bixbi dog food are its LIBERTY freeze dried "Topper & Treat" toppers. These are flavorful bites that you can add to either the LIBERTY or RAWBBLE food to help picky eaters who need a little extra nutrition. Toppers come in either chicken or beef flavors and are made using 98% meat & organs with no added hormones, flavorings, fillers or preservatives so you can be sure your dog is getting only the best.

How Healthy Are BIXBI Treats for Dogs?

By far the most exciting feature of the BIXBI brand for owners of Australian Shepherds, and other breeds that are training focused, are the BIXBI dog treats. These are a specific line of treats designed to be a nutritional compliment to a RAWBBLE diet. Unlike standard treats, these are rewards you can give for good behavior without worrying about your pet filling up on the doggie equivalent of junk food.

Like BIXBI dog food, the Jerky Treats are formulated using only 100% USA sourced meats with no artificial ingredients. They provide the natural goodness of meat that your dog loves with other natural ingredients for extra benefits. The standard jerky comes in Beef Lung and Chicken flavors and there are also specifically designed blends for Hip & Joint health and Skin & Coat health. Hip & Joint includes glucosamine and chondroitin to promote healthy joints. Skin & Coat is packed with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals to produce a shiny coat and healthy skin.

BIXBI Treats Offer Healthy Options for Training Rewards and Dog Biscuits

Pocket Trainers are the BIXBI dog treats designed specifically to make training easier and more enjoyable for you and your pup. With a range of flavors including sweet Peanut Butter, savory Chicken, sumptuous Salmon and smoky Bacon, your dog will be able to enjoy a variety of tastes that help keep his attention and you can breathe easier knowing that with less than 4 calories per treat it's a healthy alternative.

Bark Pops are BIXBI's answer to dog biscuits. These crispy, airy treats are also low calorie with less than 4 calories per treat and provide your dog with the crunch he craves. They come in three delicious flavors: rotisserie chicken, sweet potato & apple and white cheddar and are made in a human grade facility, which means that they're even safe for you to enjoy!

If you're looking for a safe, healthy and nutritious alternative that keeps your dog's health in mind, then BIXBI dog food, dog treats, and supplements are the natural choice.

BIXBI offers a range of powdered mushroom supplements formulated for immunity, digestion, joints, and skin and coat. Visit their website for more information about BIXBI supplements.

BIXBI's dedication to creating high quality products has earned it a high rating on and its dog food is formulated to meet the nutritional levels establised by the AFFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for All Life Stages. You and your Aussie will both notice the difference when you start using the only food that is guaranteed digestible, affordable, and nutritious—which makes it as close to perfect as you can get.
