Biologically Appropriate Food for your Dog:
Despite generations of domestication, biologically, our pets still have a carnivorous digestive system and their biological makeup is similar to what their ancestors had. Accordingly, pets need to be fed a diet that is rich in meat with varied meat sources for wholesome nutrition.
WholePrey Ratios of meat means that your dog’s diet is along the lines of what their counterparts would be eating in the wild. It’s not just muscle or fat, it includes organ meat, cartilage and bones. This ensures that your pet gets nutrients naturally from their food and the only supplement that is added, is zinc.
85% of the diet is meat and 15% contains botanicals. This food has no fast carbs or filler ingredients like grains, potato or tapioca. To offer variety, it contains meat from 6 different sources. 2/3 of the meat inclusions are fresh or frozen (without preservatives). 1/3rd of the meat is dehydrated. Including freeze-dried liver from chicken & turkey makes this meal more tempting for dogs.
