• 🐈 Some cats will eat red meats, but others simply will not tolerate it. If you chose this product for your cat, start with a small amount and introduce slowly.
• Red meat can cause dark brown stools. When incorporating more red meats in your animal’s diet, expect the stool to become darker in color.

    Beef venison mix

By Wanda on April 3, 2020

My dog enjoys eating anything with venison so this was a big hit.

    Beef venison coarse ground

By Lynn on June 20, 2018

Nicky, my precious feline, loves this blend and enjoys gnawing on the bones.

    Brings Out My Dog's Primal Side

By Amanda on February 24, 2018

Feeling generous and festive, I added 5 lbs of this to my Christmas season order. Boy did my dog go crazy for it. If I spoon out a hunk in the bowl she will pretty much try to swallow it whole. It's like you can almost see the look in her eyes that she's being fed as nature intended, which of course makes me feel great. Do add this to your order to mix it up from the also excellent beef blend. Your dog will thank you!

    Varied diet, low fat

By Naomi on February 18, 2018

I feed this to my dog along with some rabbit organs. It adds variety to her diet, while maintaining the low fat diet she needs for her chronic pancreatitis. The meat is of high quality, as are all the products we have bought from Hare Today.

    Venison is a-okay

By Christopher on November 26, 2017

I used this Venison been for Bruce as a novelty protein/treat in his meals. Venison is a good lean red meat to help balance out other higher fat content items. I love that I can get Venison through here as it is hard to find elsewhere.

    Cats love it!

By Catherine on May 29, 2017

My cats have always been a fan of venison, and they love this mix. They have taken a dislike to several of the red meat options they loved as kittens, but this they will happily eat. I give it to them as is, or mix it into their chicken food to give them some variety.

Be aware that this food does not contain liver. It will work well in a feeding rotation if you take this into account, or if you only feed it occasionally. Otherwise, you need to feed 0.1 lbs liver per pound of this food. I give my cats fresh or freeze-dried chicken liver as treats, so I don't worry about this.

    It's like Christmas dinner for the dogs!

By Sarah on May 23, 2017

My dogs adore this venison, beef, bone blend! It's seriously like Christmas dinner at my house when I put it down for them!! I really like this particular combination of meats - we will keep this on order for sure! Tracy's products have all been outstanding quality. I'm so happy to have a trusted source for raw meats!

    Thought it was a dud at first

By Angela M on February 17, 2017

The cats didn't really seem to go for it. Then I discovered that temperature was the key for the ones that were going to eat it. Room temperature or some above, no chill allowed. It went from "eh" to "yum" just by adjusting the temperature. And now, the little feral mother will take it from my hand. It seems to be one of her favorites, once I got the temperature right.

    Dogs say Yum!

By Susan on September 5, 2016

A little pricey to feed often but plan to add this to the rotation as often as possible. The dogs went crazy for this product and I appreciate the opportunity to add a variety of protein sources to their diet.

    Venison and beef mix

By Amanda on August 8, 2016

My pups seem to really like this mix. I like to have the variety

    Beef/venison bone in mix

By Lynn on August 1, 2016

My two cats love this food very much. They get excited when they smell it and chow it down when I give it to them.

    Venison, Beef and Bone is a hit!

By Deborah on July 14, 2016

I wasn't sure that this would go over with my 3 cats, but they absolutely love it! And I love that the meat is obviously extremely high quality. It honestly looks better than any commercially prepared raw cat food that I have purchased. Another plus is that it is much less expensive than any commercially prepared raw cat food that I have purchased, simply because this is all meat and not water. I didn't realize it before buying from Hare Today that commercially prepared raw cat food is largely water, so it is soupy when you thaw it and it takes so much of it to satisfy the cats each meal. This easily makes 2-3 times the amount of food compared to a commercially prepared food once you mix in the desired water that you want, i.e. 16 ounces of soupy food versus 16 ounces of pure meat. So even with shipping costs I figure that I'm saving a lot of money! This is a total win-win-win! The cats love it, it's the healthiest thing for them and I'm saving money!

    Beef/venison bone in mix

By Lynn on February 15, 2016

Rabbit is my cats all time favorite. However I decided to try this mix and was very happy to see how happily they enjoy it. I believe that this is their second favorite. They get very excited when I put this meal down for them!

    Ground Venison/Beef/Bone Blend

By Amy on December 10, 2015

Whenever this blend is on sale, I stock up. It is one of the meats that has a great meat to fat ratio.

    Fantastic Food

By Jennifer on November 8, 2015

Our cats love the venison/beef blend. It's quite expensive so I keep trying other meats, but nothing makes them happier than feeding on the venison/beef. When we pull out the venison their tails go straight up in excitement.

    Great Blend

By Joni on November 7, 2015

I got this because i liked that it was a multiple protein blend and when im in a time crunch it help to know I can feed variety without having to prep the meal like I usually do. Beef is a good add in my opinion to venison due to venison tending to be more rich than other proteins. The bone is just the right amount to ensure my dogs poop stays just right and they get all the nutrients they need from that as well.


By Jennifer on June 6, 2015

My 2 cats LOVE this venison beef bone blend. Forget chicken and give them venison/beef... and they are happy cats!


By Stephanie on October 1, 2014

At first my Maine Coons won't sure of this. But I've tried venison before and they weren't huge fans. After a couple days they were attacking it.


By Deborah on August 14, 2014

The venison and beef blend has got to be my favorite of all your blends and most important my dogs love it too. It seems to be the perfect blend of meat and bone for them and the 1 pound is perfect for them to split for one feeding. Thanks for the great food.


By Nichole on March 19, 2014

Love this mix. My cats truly enjoy it


By Cheri on January 4, 2014

First - I love Hare Today Gone Tomorrow - the products offered, service and delivery are \"above expectations\". That said, the coarse grind venison/beef/bone blend did not work out for me. The pieces of bone in this were simply unmanageable for my Dachshunds - I found large, hard, sharp pieces left over. It worried me, so I tried grinding it further in my own 1/2 horsepower grinder. That was a no go as the large pieces of bone immediately jammed and stopped it. I've returned to the finer ground meats, and am as happy as can be with them, but others may want to know how coarse the coarse grind is.

Response: All coarse ground products are ground through a 3/4 inch holed plate so this means you may have 3/4 inch bones as well as meats. Dogs do not chew as people do. They chew enough for it to go down their throat and the digestive acids in the stomach will do the rest. Smaller dogs my benefit form a finer grind but most dogs and cats can handle a coarse grind with out issue.


By JENNIFER on July 28, 2013

I have fed my 4 dogs a Raw diet from several different Companies and I could never get one of my Chihuahua's to eat any of it. Since the first time I ordered from Hare Today all of my dogs just love your products and for the first time my one Chihuahua ate all of her Hare Todays ground Venison. This makes her Mom a very happy Hare Today Customer for life. We are always so excited to receive our box and the girls can smell it before I even bring it in the house.

Thank you for fresh and healthy meals and Awesome packing and shipping that we can rely on.

Jennifer and Sally, Emma, GiGi and Tootie.


By Susan on January 7, 2013

My cats love this blend! They clean their plates. They can be finicky eaters and I have given them chicken, turkey, goat, rabbit and beef, but nothing else gets them meowing like this. They do love fish, but it comes in second place to the beef/venison blend. Five meows from KC and Coco!


By cheryl on June 8, 2012

just want to let you know that my two westies absolutely love the venison mix - they are always doing the happy dance when its mealtime!

Thanks for all that you do to keep our pets healthy!!!


By Joleen on June 3, 2012

This is a nice product as many venison raw food products are boneless. The addition of ground ribs seems perfect for a dog's needs with the cartilage tissue adding joint support! I will continue to feed this to my two Bull Terriers with confidence that I am feeding them what they need!


By tina on May 30, 2012

My cat didnt like the venison mixed with the beef. He likes the ground venison I get locally and he likes the boneless venison cubes available here, but with the beef mixed in there, he will not touch it. I ordered 30lbs so im stuck with it. Lesson of the day: order a small quantity when trying something new. I wish we could get ground 100% venison with bone and organ.


By Linda on May 3, 2012

My dog loves venison. I'm happy that you offer venison along with the beef so my dog can get both included in one product.


By cheryl on April 9, 2012

Just wanted to let you know that my westies love the venison/beef/bone blend. It adds variety to their diet - but I must admit -- they inhale all their raw foods - so I am not sure they can even taste it :-)


By Jo on March 20, 2012

This combination of venison and beef is great and in 1 lb bags. Since 3 of my dogs are under 25 lbs this size is great. All 4 of my dogs love it!


By Jennifer on March 9, 2012

I just added the Venison/Beef/Bone Blend to my cats diet. It is a heavier food than the rabbit and poultry. It is a good option to add for variety to keep the cats healthy. I mix the venison pieces in with this mix and they love it.


By cheryl on February 27, 2012

I am so pleased to see the venison/beef blend in the 1 lb bags! My dogs do the happy dance every day because they love all the Hare Today Products.


By Susan on February 19, 2012

My cats and dogs love this blend, especially my 6 lb Coco - she pushes away her 12 lb brother to get to it!


By fran on February 15, 2012

Mealtime?? get out of the way of the stampede. If one food would have to be the favorite choice of my 12 year old French Bulldog and my 4&5 year old American Bobtail cats ; Venison and Beef would win paws down.

Bosco my younger cat (and the "finicky" one ) gets fed first..while preparing his dish, he STRETCHES up ; paws as high as they can reach;encouraging me to go faster. My dog and other cat are outside the kitchen, waiting impatiently for their meal..Dishes are empty almost as soon as they hit the ground.

If the only criteria was the way the animals ate, well, then this would be the winner.. the meat is lean and appealing to the eye.
When I first ordered Venison, it was seasonal. Now it is available all year round; well everyone is doing the happy dance.
Thanks Tracy for providing great food for my animals with great service..


By Stacy on February 13, 2012

My dogs love this blend! So glad you have this. They can always tell when I get this one; they sniff and sniff the box and paw at it until I open it and then they try to pick the frozen package out of the box and push it around the floor still frozen jumping around and barking at it as if it's going to suddenly thaw and jump into their bowls. Always a source of entertainment. Thanks so much for having such great food that even my dogs dance around for it!
