Holistic Puppy-Dog Food & Treats

First and foremost, it is very important that you feed your dog a quality dog food.  All dog foods are not created equal.  Make sure that you ask your vet for the latest recommendations at every veterinarian appointment as we are continually learning about new research and best species appropriate recommendations to optimize your dogs health and longevity!  We offer our recommendations and advise based on the current information and experience we have accumulated over the years.  Your vet may have new recommendations based on the latest research studies which are ongoing.

There are many brands and it can be confusing so to keep it simple we have done the research for you to make everything easy!

The better the ingredients, the better your dog’s digestion, the shinier their coat, and in many cases, the longer their life!

We have researched dog foods, and have found that there are companies using high quality human grade, holistic ingredients.  Foods that are not made with fillers and poor quality ingredients, but foods that will contribute to helping your dog live a long and healthy life.

Not all kibble is created equal!

We try to stay up to date on the latest reviews of dog foods to recommend.  Some of the foods that have had consistently great reviews are:  Earthborn Puppy Vantage, these are what your puppy will start out on.   As your puppies gets older we highly recommend Earthborn Rabbit, Earthborn Alaska Pollock and Meadows.  Orijen (Regional Red) also have some good kibbles.  We never feed any Pork products or pork treats.  

These foods will cost a little more, but you feed less as your dog’s digestive system absorbs more of the nutrients.  You usually see less stools as well.  The cost of the food may initially seem high, but usually you are feeding less than you would if you were purchasing a grocery store food.   Your dog is a loved family member and deserves to be fed a quality rich food that will keep him or her in the best possible health for a very, very long time!

     Recommended Dog & Puppy Food feeding schedule

  • Daily feeding for puppy for about 3-4 months: is
    about a half a-cup in morning
    and a 1/4 a of a-cup (or a little more+ in afternoon and 1/4 of cup in early evening (no more for even),  …will be a good daily diet for your young puppy.
  • When Puppy eats all the kibble in 1o minutes (or less)  it maybe time to give puppy a little more food.
  • We recommend when puppy is about 5  months old to start feeding your puppy a-little ( start with just a few kibbles ) some Earthborn Rabbit.
    Important to feed in separate bowl.
  • ~Colorado folks may want to find Dogma pet Store in Evergreen, great prices.~ For online orders use Only Natural Pet.
  • Supplements : Plain Whole Milk or goat Yogurt a couple TLB. spoons a couple times a week. A couple TLB. spoons of organic cooked Pumpkin mixed with 1/2 (or more) of cup of cooked red meat a couple times a week as a very healthy treat.

Do NOT Mix wet food with Dry dog Food Kibble, it can create digestion problems, and it’s a choking hazard.

We highly recommend Earthborn Puppy food, click to review their site!
