Kibble contains between 30 and 50% starch? Dogs obtain their energy from protein and fat, not starch. What happens to all the excess starch in their body? It metabolizes into sugar, causing a host of health issues including but not limited to; obesity, diabetes, skin and ear issues. Feeding a fresh whole food diet is key to limiting unnecessary ingredients and having a vibrant, healthy, thriving dog.

Balancing your dog’s diet can be challenging and we want to keep it as simple as possible by offering pre-mixed meat blends that have been professionally balanced with muscle, organ and bone. These come in a variety of proteins choices and sizes as well.
Add vegetables and fruit as an additional 10-20% of the basal diet. This percentage can vary based on age, activity level, as well as bowel habits. For example: If your trying to help your dog slim down, make vegetables 10-20% of their total diet (meat/organ/bone 80% and vegetables 20%= Total Diet) For maintaining weight use 10-20% in addition to their meat/organ/bone ratio ( meat/organ/bone + additional 10-20% vegetables= Total Diet)
Many raw diets are deficient in a few key nutrients: Iodine is a key nutrient, Kelp is a great source of Iodine and chlorophyll. Omega 3 fatty acid is also very important for brain, heart and skin and coat health and should not be skipped.
Adding a source of Omega 3 Fatty acids is vital to your dog’s diet. Sardines, anchovies or even high quality fish oil supplements
The amount of raw food you should feed your dog each day depends on whether they’re a puppy or an adult. As a starting point for raw foods, feed your adult dog about 2% to 3% of their ideal weight. For puppies feed 4%-5% of their current weight, reweigh your puppy weekly. -If your dog is very active, you may need to feed a little more. And if your dog is more of a couch potato, you may need to feed a little less.
Adding Enzymes and Probiotic supplements make the transition smoother for your dog, and increase gut health.
There are times when raw may not be best for our pets. If you have a senior dog, it may be more difficult to make the transition to raw. In these cases cooking the meat and vegetables and offering only raw bones, can be the solution to an older dog with a sensitive stomach Or, if your dog has been on kibble for a long time. Beginning the transition with cooked food, then slowly transitioning to raw is a gentle way to build up the proper enzymes in the gut.
