Their selection of meat, fruit, and vegetable ingredients begin and end their process as fresh wholesome human grade food throughout the manufacturing process.

The food contains no by-products, added salt or sugar, chemical preservatives, artificial colors or flavors and NO beet pulp, rice, wheat, corn, or soy. Which makes them ideal for dogs with allergies including dry, itchy skin, hair loss, lack of energy, chronic ear problems or other health issues.

The fresh food consistency will resemble oatmeal or stew and should be fed to your pet immediately ensuring a fresh meal.
