requently Asked Questions
About our

  1. What is the difference in the cooked food, and the no-cook food? The no-cook version contains rolled oats instead of brown rice and barley. It also contains sweet potatoes. The no-cook version is a healthier diet because it is in keeping with a raw diet which dogs have lived on for thousands of years before humans started cooking their food. Instead of cooking the nutrients out of the food the vegetables and grains remain raw (vegetables were dehydrated to preserve them, which does not significantly detract from their nutritional values). It is also handy to have on hand in case of power outages, traveling, picnics, etc., because you just take it along in its own bag. We also recommend switching back and forth between the two versions because it is a good idea to rotate your dog’s diet. AND, most importantly, when starting your pet on our real food diets, they like and accept the Cook formula better. After a couple of weeks you can gradually shift them over to the No-Cook formula.
  2. I like cooking for my dog. Is the cooked version still healthy? Compared to commercially processed dog food, the answer is YES! Although cooking the food normally depletes it nutritionally, in this case, because the water it cooks in stays with the food and is absorbed back into it, it is still full of healthy nutrition! Dogs who eat the cooked or no-cook formula still get glossy coats and silky-soft fur, enjoy much better health, have more energy, and stay fit and trim.
  3. Do you recommend giving raw meat? Won’t that give them worms? Dogs have evolved for thousands of years eating raw meat and raw bones. It is natural for them to do so, and unnatural for them to eat cooked meat. There is a common myth that over time their digestive systems have changed to handle a cooked diet. There is no scientific proof of this. In his book, “Give Your Dog a Bone,” noted Australian veterinarian Dr. Ian Billinghurst is quite emphatic about this point. Furthermore, raw meat contains enzymes which help with absorption and the digestive process. Cooking meat destroys these enzymes as well as much of the nutrients. However, if you just can’t bring yourself to serve raw meat, cooked meat is still a far better alternative than any commercially processed dog food (canned or kibble).
  4. Why does my dog need grains and vegetables? Aren’t dogs carnivores? They sure are. And guess what wild dogs and wolves eat first when they kill their prey? Its stomach. The animals they eat are usually grain, vegetable and fruit nibblers, and the contents of their stomachs provide these important nutrients for dogs. Most commercial dog foods contain wheat, corn, and/or soy which can cause or aggravate skin problems. Try to find a dog food without wheat in it! You just did! Our food is wheat free, and also free of other common allergens such as soy, and milk products.
  5. My dog is a picky eater. What is the best way to get him to eat this food? I would start him out on our Cook Formula and add cooked chicken. If you have a crockpot, throw a chicken in with a cracked garlic clove and a little water. When done, use a little of the broth to pour on the cooked or non-cooked food, and mix in boneless pieces of the chicken. Never give cooked bones to your dog! There are very few dogs who will turn down this meal! Eventually you will not need to add chicken broth to the cooked or noncooked food--just good water (distilled, preferably, to keep the urinary tract ungunked).
  6. Is this diet okay for puppies? Absolutely. In the wild, once puppies are weaned, they only eat raw meat, vegetables and grains found in the stomachs of their prey, and fruit if they can get it. The only difference is that puppies will need more of the food because they are growing. Recommended feeding for puppies is 3 times a day if possible. Also, the amount of exercise given will call for an increase or decrease in portions for dogs of all ages. By weighing your pug daily you will know whether to increase or decrease portions.
  7. Does this diet work for other dogs? Yes, of course. All dogs need real, natural food. It’s another myth we’ve lived with for years that one needs a college degree in science to know how to feed their dog. We call this food a Small Dog Diet ONLY because it would get a little pricey if large dogs were eating it.
  8. I notice that this food says it is a weight maintenance formula, but my dog doesn’t need to lose weight! Don’t worry. Just feed larger portions and watch your dog’s weight. You can vary the food up or down according to your dog’s metabolism and amount of exercise given. And keep in mind, most American dogs, particularly the larger breeds, are overweight to some degree, and will be healthier once they’ve shed those few unwanted pounds. If your dog is at ideal weight, he or she will stay that way when given the proper portions..
