A lot of ingredients go into making a nutritious, healthy dog food like ours. Even though it may seem like many items, it’s important to remember that our formula is complete and nutritionally balanced. That means that if your dog eats only our food, they will be getting the complete, balanced set of nutrients they need to live a healthy life.

Our Lamb Meal is a premium, high quality protein that is a highly digestible nutrient source.
What's the difference between Lamb and Lamb Meal? A “meal” is a concentrated (water and fat removed) version of a protein source. Most foods contain quite a bit of water, so the meal versions are concentrated and are far more rich, without being watered down. As a result, Lamb Meal contains 300% more protein than fresh lamb!
You may have also read that “Meals” are bad because you don't know what’s in them. There is some truth to that - when it comes to meals in dog food, you want to look for specifics! A food that just says “Meat Meal” or “Meal Byproduct” may be hiding something because you simply don't know what they mean by “Meat”.
With our food, you know that “Lamb Meal” is made from fresh Lamb, with no “by-products”, “digests”, or unspecified meats - just high quality concentrated Lamb.
Peas are a valuable ingredient because they contain twice the protein of most vegetables. They are good sources of vitamin A, vitamin C, and some B-complex vitamins— thiamine, riboflavin, and niacin. Peas are also good sources of calcium, iron, phosphorus, and potassium. The insoluble fiber present helps intestinal mobility.
Pea Starch is a natural gluten-free and tasty carbohydrate. Although extremely digestible, the pea starch granules are slowly digested providing sustained energy release and have a low glycaemic index (GI).
Sweet potatoes are a source of complex carbohydrates that offer an alternative to traditional carbohydrate choices for pets. The sweet potato is known for being a superb source of energy, fiber, potassium, B vitamins, beta-carotene, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, calcium, and iron. Their natural sweetness provides a taste your pets will love.
Besides being a good source of vitamin C, these tasty fruits also contain useful amounts of vitamin A, iron, and potassium. However, they are most widely known for their lycopene content. Lycopene is a powerful antioxidant.
Blueberries are a good source of vitamins C and E, complex carbohydrates, and fiber.
Similar to lamb, pork is another highly digestible nutrient source
Eggs contain amounts of all essential amino acids, thus making them "the perfect protein source." In addition to their varied proteins, eggs also contain many components which help promote the overall health of your pet. Eggs have a range of high quality saturated and unsaturated fatty acids. They also contain higher amounts of carotenoids, a compound associated with eye health and eyesight improvement, than vegetables. Their rich vitamin E content also helps combat free radicals and ensure cell protection. Furthermore, the iron present in eggs aids in the formation of red blood cells, while their zinc aids in the normal functioning of the immune system. Eggs also contain a high amount of sulfur and many vitamins and minerals which promote healthy skin and coat, while choline — an essential component of eggs — boosts brain power.
Herring Meal contains high amounts of high quality protein and omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Herring meal is very digestible and promotes healthy skin and coat.
Chicken fat is a quality source of essential fatty acids and an excellent source of energy. Fat has a positive effect on the immune system and plays a beneficial role in stress response. Essential fatty acids are required for proper growth, reproduction, normal skin structure, and a healthy coat. Because chicken fat contains virtually no protein, its use does not cause allergic reactions associated with the use of fresh chicken or chicken meal, both of which contain high amounts of protein.
Coconut oil can help aid in your dog's digestion, help improve their coat, and can even help prevent infections
This special seed is known for containing high levels of alpha-linolenic acid (omega-3 fatty acids), along with good quantities of other fatty acids. It is used in our food to help balance the dietary omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acid ratio. Flaxseed also supplies both insoluble and soluble fiber. These fibers are known to aid in proper digestion and help to maintain good stool consistency.
While we know too much salt isn't healthy for humans, salt (specifically sodium) is an essential ingredient that both humans and dogs need. AAFCO actually requires a minimum sodium level of 0.30% for this reason, and our food is 0.32%.
Helps make your dog's stool not smell as bad. (We do what we can!)
A natural antioxidant used to help keep our food fresh
Our recipe is a complete and balanced food source, which means our food has to contain everything necessary for your dog to be healthy. There are a lot of vitamins and minerals important to the health of your dog that simply aren’t found, or aren’t available in high enough quantities with many of the main proteins we make food out of. Due to their importance to your dog’s diet and health, we supplement them in our food. They may have complicated and hard-to-pronounce names, but don’t let that scare you away. We’ve gone through each one here to explain why we’ve added it to our food, and why it’s important.
Powerful antioxidant which helps prevent cancer, heart disease, and cell damage. Can also reduce blood pressure and promotes a healthy coat.
Promotes healthy skin and coat.
A source of choline, which is a key component of cell membrane phospholipids.
