How do you inhibit bacterial growth in the products?

Prior to cooking all meat is stored and kept frozen during blending until it is placed into the dehydrators. The products are brought up to a time and temperature combination sufficient to eliminate salmonella, ecoli, etc. The moisture is reduced to a level where bacterial and microbial growth are prevented before packaging. An oxygen absorber is used in our barrier packaging to keep the product fresh.

Inconsistencies in batches?

You may notice the color or texture has variations from one bag or batch to the next. This occurs because we use all-natural meat and organs, and we don’t use artificial fillers, dyes, colors or preservatives. The color and texture of our pet food is largely determined by the meat used in each batch and in this way, it will vary, depending on animals age, season and other natural factors.

Feeding Guide

The below feeding guide is a suggested starting point based on average needs.

Treats are Treats and are intended for supplimental feeding, however they will contribute to daily caloric intake and should be considered in determining amount to feed.

When mixing or using as a topper remember to adjust feeding to achieve desired daily caloric intake.

There are many vet and pet nutrition sites that may be be more specific to your pets needs, these are only meant to be general guides.

intake will vary based on changiing conditions, some days your pet may not feel like eating and others they might eat more, this is normal.
