Nutrition Facts 

Have you ever heard the phrase, "we are what we eat!".....

Whelp, this applies to our beloved fur babies as much as it does us!

Here is some information about why it is important to know what we are feeding our dogs and cats. 

The Basics 

What does my pet need out of their diet?  

 Pets need the right amounts and proportions of nutrients from six different groups: vitamins and minerals, water, protein, fat and carbohydrates. 

Read the Label!

The first 3-6 ingredients should say PROTIENS. 

Ex: Chicken, Chicken Liver, Beef, Salmon etc. (this all depends on the protein you choose.)

What you shouldn't read: 

Chicken Meal, Beef Meal, Deboned Chicken, Lamb Fat etc.  

Is grain bad for my pet?

Healthy grains are good grains! 

Picture this, your dog/cat is living their best life in the wild hunting for their own meals. 

This means that bunny your dog caught, has probably ate some kind of plant with grains. Make sense? 

Great. 

Healthy grains: 

Flaxseed, Quinoa, Lentils 

NOT CORN! 

Dry VS. Raw VS. Fresh

It can get a little overwhelming when choosing the right food for our pets. 

That's why we are here to guide you. There are many different opinions, whether you should feed dry, raw or fresh. 

All our employees actual feed all different foods but the best quality of each option. 

Fresh: 

Feeding pets, a diet made with natural, real ingredients, such as beef, chicken, lamb, peas, spinach, carrots, and blueberries, can do wonders for their overall well-being — promoting heart health, increasing energy level, making coats shiny and breath smell better, improving eyesight, and even impacting a dog’s stool.

However, cooking for your pet is a process that’s demanding on your time, space.

RAW:

Raw dog food can be homemade, store-bought, freeze-dried, or dehydrated. A raw diet usually includes organ meats, muscle meat, whole or ground bone, raw eggs, dog-safe fresh fruits and vegetables, and a dairy product such as yogurt. Advocates of raw food diets site these benefits: shinier coats, healthier skin, improved dental health, increased energy, and smaller stools.

However, this does not mean throw your dog a raw piece of meat. The raw needs to be free of bacteria. 

Dry:

Those who feed their dogs kibble suggest the potential benefits to be reduced dental plaque, healthier gums, reduced risk of bacteria, easier storage, and cost-effectiveness. 

Read the label. Look for a food that has a protein as the first ingredient, not a grain. The best kibbles have a single source of protein, such as lamb or chicken. Grain-free diets exist, but carbohydrates are required for energy, and the choice of grain is important.
