  • Boost Me does NOT include wheat, grain, corn, soy, gluten, added sugar, artificial flavors or colors, added salt, added hormones, or added antibiotics

What We Don’t Like

  • Could be expensive for large dogs or multiple dogs if feeding daily

TruDog Reviews: How much does TruDog BoostMe freeze-dried topper cost?

At the time of this posting, the price of Boost Me Beef Freeze-Dried Raw Topper 3.5 oz was $11.99 for a one-time purchase and $9.54 if you subscribe to regular deliveries.

There are approximately 7 tablespoons in each bag.  Depending on the size of your dog and how many meals you would like to supplement, this bag could last 2 days to 7 days or more.

If you were feeding a large dog or multiple dogs 2 tablespoons a day, every day, this could add up, but remember that this is a supplement and not intended to be a full meal.

TruDog Reviews:  Boost Me Freeze-Dried Raw Booster

For our TruDog reviews, we received a 3.5 oz bag of BoostMe: Freeze-Dried Raw Booster in the beef formula.  Boost Me is a nutrient-rich superfood dog food topper that is met to supplement your current dog food. SHOP NOW >>

Boost Me is made with USA farm-raised raw beef, whole organ meat, some herring oil for digestion, and 2 preservatives to ensure freshness.  It does NOT include wheat, grain, corn, soy, gluten, added sugar, artificial flavors or colors, added salt, added hormones, or added antibiotics.

Boost Me is high in protein and a rich source of amino acids supporting both the development and maintenance of muscles and maintains healthy digestion and gut health as well as the overall health of dogs of all ages and breeds.  Its shredded texture is also ideal for dogs of all ages and sizes.

There are many benefits to feeding your dog raw including better breath, a healthier gut, and a stronger immune system.  But raw food is not for everyone as it can be expensive and inconvenient compared to more traditional dog food.  By freeze-drying raw food into dog food toppers, TruDog allows dog parents to give their dog some of the benefits of a raw diet without a huge added expense or the inconvenience of storing food in the refrigerator and freezer.  SHOP NOW >>

Compared to other brands, specifically grocery store brands, that offer dog food toppers, BoostMe is freeze-dried while others are processed at high heat which cooks out all of the nutrients.  Freeze-drying allows nutrients to stay intact giving your pup what they need to thrive.

We have found that many premium dog food companies are not processing their dry dog food at high heat in order to lock in nutrients and definitely something to look for when choosing a dry dog food.

Our Daisy, who is not a picky eater, loved the BoostMe beef topper.  She is always excited for mealtime and when she smells this topper she can’t wait to eat.  We gave Daisy 1 tablespoon of the BoostMe with each meal, which is half of the recommended serving, to ease her into this new protein.  After a week, there were no noticeable changes in her stool and no issues with her digestion that we could see.  For us, this means that she is tolerating the new topper.

In addition to adding BoostMe as a topper, we gave Daisy a little as a treat to try it out.  And while it was a bit messy, she absolutely loved it.  I would recommend giving the treat in their dog bowl to cut down on the mess.  Though if you have a small dog, BoostMe would make a great little training treat.  SHOP NOW >>

TruDog Reviews: How do I feed my dog TruDog Boost Me?

Boost Me can be used as a food topper or as an all-natural supplement and treat.

To use as a food topper, simply add up to 2 tablespoons of BoostMe over every one cup of your dog’s food.   TruDog says that BoostMe is “intended for intermittent or supplemental feeding only” and is not a meal replacement.  You can give your dog BoostMe every day, if you want, as a topper or treat.   SHOP NOW >>

TruDog Reviews: Who is TruDog Boost Me freeze-dried topper best for?

Boost Me is ideal for dogs of all ages, sizes, and breeds.  It can be especially good for:

  • Picky eaters.  They will love the texture and smell.
  • Dogs transitioning to a raw food diet.  Helps their gut adjust to raw slowly.
  • Dogs with dental issues, sore mouths, or advanced age as the texture is soft and easy to chew.
  • Dogs with a loss of appetite or digestive issues as it smells great and is minimally processed.

TruDog Reviews: Treat Me Single-Ingredient Natural Dog Treats

In addition to the raw food topper, TruDog also offers “Treat Me” single-ingredient natural dog treats.

Unlike most treats found in your local grocery store that can contain up to 20 different ingredients, Treat Me freeze-dried natural dog treats are made with only one high-quality ingredient and DO NOT INCLUDE wheat, corn, grains, sugar, fillers, chemicals or by-products, refined carbohydrates, or added salt.

They come in 6 tasty flavors including Salmon, Beef, Turkey, Chicken Heart, Beef Liver, and Chilean Blue Sea Mussels.

Treat Me freeze-dried natural dog treats come in a 2 oz or 2.5 oz bag and cost between $9.76 – $12.99 per bag.   You can even Subscribe & Save 7% AND receive 30% OFF your first shipment!  SHOP NOW >>

TruDog Reviews:  Bottom Line

TruDog makes feeding your dog raw food easy and convenient through a variety of freeze-dried and dehydrated raw dog food, toppers, and treats.

We love that the Boost Me raw dog food toppers are freeze-dried to lock in nutrients and are free from common allergens like wheat, grain, corn, soy, and gluten, as well as added sugar, artificial flavors or colors, added salt, added hormones, or added antibiotics.  In addition, the added protein and amino acids support the maintenance of muscles and support gut health for dogs of all ages and breeds.  And best of all, our Daisy really enjoyed eating this topper on her normal food!

And while we love that this raw food topper does not have to be stored in the refrigerator or freezer and is great for traveling, the price of the topper for a large breed dog like our Daisy or a household with multiple dogs could be cost-prohibitive long-term.  We will stick with giving BoostMe as a treat and use it as a topper from time to time.

Compared to grocery store brands that offer dog food toppers, Boost Me is clearly made with a few high-quality ingredients, without many of the harmful artificial ingredients found in other toppers, and is minimally processed to lock in nutrients. We didn’t get the chance to review the TruDog freeze-dried or dehydrated dog food and look forward to comparing it to other premium dog food that we have reviewed.

We recommend TruDog Boost Me to anyone with a picky eater that needs a little something to help them eat their normal food, those looking for a healthy treat, and those who want the benefits of feeding raw without the cost and mess. SHOP NOW >>

Enjoy!
