In this section you will find information I have gathered and found useful. Included is information on feeding, useful articles covering a variety of topics, as well as other websites I frequent related to dogs.
We feed a combo raw and high quality kibble diet to maximize digestion and absorbtion of the essential nutrients and vitamins necessary for a happy, healthy dog. I will build this section out more over time. In the meantime, 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 Sport Dog Food. It is very high quality, with limited ingredients.
This means, there is:
No Corn, Wheat, Soy, or Gluten
No Chicken or Chicken By-Product-Meal
No Rice or White Potato
No Flax Seed or Alfalfa
No Peas, Pea Fiber or Pea Powder
No Egg or Egg Product
No Beet Pulp or Pomace
No Canola Oil
No Ethoxyquin (Preserved with Verdilox)
