As the founder of a nutrition center, the health of my dogs is of most importance, followed by structure. All of my dogs are fed foods meant for canine consumption: muscle meat, organ meats, fats, blood, bone and marrow. Our dams are fed foods with proper nutrients before breeding takes place and is continued throughout their entire pregnancy. I believe this is the key to producing the healthiest pups possible. When pups arrive, nursing from mom is encouraged at the first available moment. I believe the nutrients contained in the dams milk are the key to a strong immunity that will last a lifetime. Pups are encouraged to nurse on the dam for as long as possible and while our dam allows. When pups are ready for pureed foods, I start them on a whole muscle meat~ such as Beef or Chicken. Once their digestive system adjusts to solid foods, I incorporate vital organ meats, blood, fat, goat milk, probiotics and fish oil in to their diet. Before sending pups home with their new families, I transition foods from real food, to real food topped on kibble, to an all kibble diet. This food transition is made for the convenience of the new family but I highly encourage incorporating real foods back into diet. Foods to consider: Muscle meats, vital organs, blood, bone and fat.
Kibble~ I recommend Trudog. It contains ingredients that are meant for canine consumption and its free of synthetic (man made) nutrients.
Supplements~ I recommend fish oil and probiotics daily. Avoid all synthetic supplements.
How dangerous are they~
Essential oils~ Research safety before internal/external use
Synthetic nutrients~ Made made chemicals can build up inside the body . These Chemicals can cause vital organ damage. chemicals used to preserve and coat supplements are known to cause cancer.
Chew Toys~ Most pet toys are not made of quality and have fluffly fillers that can be choking hazards. Pig ears and raw hide are also choking hazards.
Plants~ Both indoor and outdoor plants can be toxic to your dogs. Its best to research safety on all plants your pet will be exposed to.
Food~ Not all human food is good for pets. Reseach safety before feeding your pet anything other than foods meant for canine consumption: muscle meat, vital organs, blood, bone, fat.
The ONLY chew toy we reccomend are Elk Antlers
