Every dog is unique in personality as well as in genetic makeup with special needs just like humans. Some dogs are allergic to beef, vegetables or even the pesticides and preservatives found in commercial pet foods. We can customize a menu for your dog so it can live a pleasant, healthy life. Just as when people eat well they generally are healthy, physically fit, and have a sense of well-being. We strive to find the perfect mix of foods and supplements so your pet will live a fulfilling life free from the problems associated with consuming a commercial diet. The same foods you and I eat can provide your pet all he needs free from processing, fillers, and unnecessary preservatives and pesticides.

Commercial Dog Food Issues
"Premium" pet food marketed and sold as "Complete and Balanced" has historically contained such items as euthanized dogs and cats, restaurant grease, hair, hooves, diseased animals, and other inedible garbage.
Because manufacturers need to ensure that dry foods have a long shelf life (typically 12 months) to remain edible through shipping and storage, fats used in pet foods are preserved with either synthetic or "natural" preservatives. Synthetic preservatives include butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) and butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT), propyl gallate, propylene glycol (also used as a less-toxic version of automotive antifreeze), and ethoxyquin.
By-products are ingredients used which are not fit for human consumption. By-products are often floor sweepings from a rendering plant. "Animal by-product" is rendered product from animal tissues, exclusive of any added blood, hair, hoof, horn, hide trimmings, manure, stomach and rumen contents except in such amounts as may occur unavoidably in good processing practices. Pet food labels contain the words "meal" or "byproduct" on the ingredient label. Inedible byproducts such as fat, heads, hair, feet and condemned offal are used in commercial pet food. These materials are sent to a rendering plant for processing into pet food products.
"Meat" is often rendered dogs and cats as well as other animals such as road-kill. When the source of the meat is known it will be listed as beef, poultry, chicken, turkey, etc. If the source of the meat is not known it is simply called "meat."
Rather than the wholesome pictures shown on the pet food packaging, rendering companies dispose of millions pounds of inedible waste each day including, heads, feet, stomachs, intestines, spinal cords, tails, restaurant grease, feathers, bones and dead or diseased animals rejected from slaughterhouses for use in manufacturing pet food. Amazingly, animals from research laboratories may be rendered into pet food as well.
Your pet's diet strongly influences your pet's life expectancy, which can be dramatically increased with a whole foods diet.
