Can my small adult dog eat puppy food?
Our puppy food is perfectly suitable for small breeds. Although our Adult kibble is on the smaller side compared to most, some dogs prefer the puppy kibble size. Feeding amounts should be monitored, as the puppy food and amounts are formulated for growing puppies and may cause adult dogs to gain excess weight.
What is ‘ash’?
In dog food, ash is not as we know it. Ash represents the mineral content of the food & is determined chemically by burning the product. It is not an ingredient.
Why don’t you add vitamins and minerals to the food?
By combining a high proportion of fresh, human grade meat with our unique range of nutritional herbs, fruits, vegetables and high quality carbohydrates we have been able to create a truly special, complete dog food which contains every nutrient a dog needs without any artificial vitamin or mineral supplementation whatsoever. Just high quality, hypoallergenic natural ingredients. The kind of ingredients dogs are evolved to eat.
Are your bags recyclable?
Natural Dog Food bags are made of entirely natural products; they are recyclable, biodegradable and even compostable! This means they are breathable and perfect for storing the food, it also means that the bags are not harmful to your pets or the environment. Our shiny outer coating is made from clay, we used water based ink and the rest of the bag is made from sustainable paper stocks. Which means for every tree that goes into our bags, three more are planted! Even the Treats bags are recyclable!
When should I feed senior food?
As a rough guideline, we say around 7-8 years old is classed as a senior dog. However you should not feel as though you need to change foods if your dog is doing well on our Adult food. The senior recipe benefits from herbs and vegetables tailored to help with joint strain, impaired major organ function and reduced mobility. It also has slightly increased protein to help prevent muscle wastage that is often seen in older dogs.
Do I need to add any other food to Natural Dog Food?
Natural dog food is formulated as a balanced complete diet and as such provides everything your dog needs to remain fit and healthy. Nevertheless, we think that dogs are individuals with individual tastes and should be treated as such. Like humans, they thrive on variety and this can be provided through ‘optional’ extras such as fresh green vegetables, meat and raw bones. To ensure the correct nutritional balance is maintained, we suggest feeding Natural Dog Food as at least 90% of the total diet.
How many times a day should feed my puppy?
Puppies can be fed a minimum of 3 times a day, as they still only have small stomachs they cannot handle large meals yet.
What herbs and vegetables do you use?
We have recreated the mixture of fruits, herbs and vegetables that would have been available to dogs through the stomach contents of their herbivorous prey and natural foraging. This vegetable matter provides an enormous variety of micro-nutrients which are largely lacking in other complete foods. We use ingredients like cinnamon to promote a healthy heart, yucca to help with blood pressure and arthritis, cranberries to help with urinary tract and boost overall health, apples for antioxidants, carrots for vitamins and minerals, camomile to aid digestion and seaweed for a whole raft of special nutrients. It is this specific combination that really sets Natural Dog Food apart and means that we don’t have to add any artificial vitamins or minerals to our food. We let nature do the hard work and simply reap the benefits for your dog.
How many times a day should I feed my adult dog?
We recommend feeding an Adult dog twice a day, where possible.
What does hypoallergenic mean?
Hypoallergenic means it is relatively unlikely to cause an allergic reaction. Our food contains no wheat or other cereals commonly associated with allergy and intolerance, no dairy, soya or maize, absolutely no artificial additives of any kind, no by-products, no GM and no added sugars.
