Murphy’s Doggy Deli
A Natural & Nutritious Raw Working Dog Food Store in Ashton Keynes, Wiltshire
The inspiration behind Murphy’s Doggy Deli is Murphy the Alaskan Malamute. Murphy began his raw fed journey as a very young pup with ongoing digestive issues. After trying several premium brands of kibble to no avail, I began to research raw feeding. He was switched to a raw diet – and I saw an almost instantaneous improvement. Watching him thrive on a natural, fresh canine diet inspired me to help spread the raw-feeding word.
We stock many of the best names in the raw food business along with tasty natural treats, holistic supplements and health products, enrichment toys and more. Whether you are new to raw feeding or a long-time enthusiast, we have something to suit every dog and every budget.
With hundreds of products to choose from, no minimum order requirements and delivery to your door across Wiltshire and Gloucestershire, we aim to help make feeding your working dog a varied and balanced raw diet as easy as feeding kibble. We are also on hand with support, advice and guidance on transitioning your dog to a raw diet.

Dogs are facultative carnivores
In order for dogs to thrive, they require a meat based diet. Dogs are facultative carnivores – while they can eat a plant based diet, their teeth, jaws and digestive system are designed for eating meat. Their teeth and jaws are perfectly evolved for ripping and tearing at chunks of meat and crushing bones.
Some dog foods contain just 4% meat
The principle ingredient in mass produced kibble is grain – cheap and plentiful but of no nutritional benefit to your pet. Some dog foods contain just 4% meat and is bulked out by cheap fillers such as rice. Your dog’s digestive system struggles to deal with the grain, preservatives and additives in commercial diets and this may cause health issues.
Improve Your Pet's Digestion
If you have a dog with a tendency to have an upset tum, feeding a raw diet with none of the added nasties may mean you see a huge improvement in your pet’s digestion. A species appropriate diet contains only 100% natural ingredients – just meat, bone and offal! Some popular brands add beneficial fruits, vegetables and herbs to their recipes as well for added goodness.
We know eating a fresh, healthy and balanced diet is good for us – why should it be any different for our precious pets!
Some of the benefits of feeding raw:
- Improved digestion
- Increased energy
- Helps to reduce allergies and alleviate itchy skin
- Cleaner teeth
- Fresher breath
- Glossy coat
- Happy dogs – chewing chunks and bones releases endorphins, one of the happiness hormones!
- Can help reduce inflammation or stiffness of the joints
- More enthusiasm for eating their dinner
- Smaller, less smelly poos!
