Our food is prepared using a proprietary low-heat cooking and freeze drying process. This process helps preserve the nutrient value in each meal vs. traditional kibble. This means we never, ever have to spray chemicals back on our product just to pass industry standards.

If Your Dog Could Talk

Actually they can!
Ok, they kind of can… just not with actual words.
Watery eyes? Itchy butt? Anxious personality?
That’s your dog trying to tell you something!

When your pet eats highly processed food (aka kibble) it may include additives and synthetics that aren’t usable by the body, resulting in grumbly bellies, itchy skin, huge poops, scooty butts and even illness.

Our recipes are based on Eastern Food Therapy which seeks to recognize internal imbalances and use specific whole foods to rebalance the body. It is proven to help heal and prevent disease so your pet can live a healthier longer life.

Ava loves the food which is important because she doesn't love all foods. She pretty much wolfs it down in 30 seconds... Her fur also seems to be filling out a bit which is awesome because she has had balding for years!
