Oh, it's in coolers in the dog aisle, rolled dog food that you slice and serve...

Noah really liked it and it was pretty convenient to feed but it also made him very gassy.

You're looking at just the rolls or the Vital bags of food as well? I personally preferred feeding him the Vital.

It isn't raw. Contains some common allergens (specifically soy) and ingredients like salt. I question their processing and would want to know more before I tried feeding it, although it could be ok.

On the whole, if you wanted to go this route, you'd save a lot of money buying cheap meat, adding your own liver, rice, eggs, veggies and a vitamin.
