We feed and recommend a combo raw and quality kibble diet
We feed a combo raw and high quality kibble diet to maximize digestion and absorption of the essential nutrients and vitamins necessary for a happy, healthy dog. If you have any questions or need guidance starting a raw diet for your dog or puppy, please feel free to contact me directly. Below you will find a link to a Facebook group that provides guidance and invaluable information in their files.
Your best source for the raw portion of your dogs diet can be obtained from Raw Dog Express. They offer a variety of 100% balanced rolls of human grade, AAFCO approved, raw food. They also have products for those who want a more do-it-yourself feeding model. Check out their products on their website and follow their FB page for product updates, specials, order reminders, and informational posts on raw feeding!
We follow the 80/10/10 model, which consists of:
80% meat, sinew, ligaments, fat
10% edible bone
10% organ (5% liver and 5% other organ meat)
NEVER feed cooked bones of any type! When bones are cooked they can splinter and pierce the stomach or intestines. Raw bones are soft; bending as needed during digestion.
The kibble we use is Open Farm. It is very high quality, with limited ingredients.
All formulas have meat as the first ingredient.
The meats are antibiotic and growth hormone free and
fruits & veggies are exclusively non-GMO.
Our favorite line is their Wild Caught Salmon & Ancient Grains formula.
OceanWise® approved wild caught salmon
A wholesome blend of ancient grains like millet, quinoa, sorghum
and chia seeds
90% protein from animal sources, 10% from nutritious ancient grains
No peas, legumes and potatoes
No corn, wheat or soy
No artificial flavors or preservatives
No poultry or meat by-products
No rendered poultry or meat meals
