Raw food is what nature intended for dogs.
Raw food is more nutritious - in fact, it's bursting with vitamins and vital antioxidants. And then we gently dehydrate, because dehydration is gentler than cooking and simply removes the moisture; almost all nutrients, enzymes and other valuable compounds remain in tact.
Love can be fed alone or as a supplement to any homemade food diet that your pet currently enjoys. Raw dehydrated food is different from the more conventional kibble or even cooked and processed foods, it is important to allow enough time for your pet to adjust to the change in diet.
Love was designed to be as good as raw homemade dog food and much better than the dry dog kibble or canned food that is so often fed to our pets.
Love contains no by-products, extra salts or sugars, artificial colors or flavors, and no chemical preservatives.
Other common ingredients in commercial kibble dog food that are NOT in Love include beet pulp, rice, wheat, corn or soy. The reason for not including these ingredients is that they are considered to be common allergens for dogs. They can cause problems like dry or itchy skin, lack of energy, ear problems and even hair loss.
In fact, Love was originally designed for dogs that have sensitive stomachs or other chronic ailments that could have come from eating grains and gluten. By removing these ingredients from the diet, many animals find relief and return to vibrant health.
Just because the product is healthy and nutritious, does not mean that it has be tasteless or even worse – awful tasting. That's simply not true. Love is delicious and dogs love it.
Love contains only the freshest top quality ingredients, which are then gently dehydrated in such a way as to preserve the high vitamin, mineral and enzyme levels in the food. This process is perfectly safe and very healthy. Meats and eggs are dehydrated slightly differently. They are dehydrated at high temperatures to kill any bacteria and could be considered 'cooked' by the process. The finished dried food is healthy, nutritious, and safe for puppies and older animals.
Love is made in a FDA inspected production facility in California, where human foods like breakfast cereals and drink mixes are also made. As a food production facility, it undergoes regular FDA inspections.
Love can be fed as a standalone diet. Or if your dog desires, other foods can be added to the regular serving size .
You and your dogs will adore this food. Why?
- Nutritional balance
- Grain and filler free
- All natural wholesome ingredients
- Food safety over raw or frozen diets
- Time savings in food preparation over homemade diets
Love dog food is a delicious product that is simple to store, easy to hydrate and great to take along on your travels. As you appreciate the peace of mind of buying the best for your pet, your dog will appreciate the taste and good health.
If your pet is already on a raw food diet, then it works well to rehydrate Love and mix with the normal diet right away. For other pets that are new to this type of food and have been eating dry kibbles or canned dog food, then introduce Love gradually over several days to a week. Follow the guidelines on the package and mix a little of the rehydrated Love to the regular dry or canned for at the beginning. Over the course of the next few days, slowly reduce the amount of dry or canned food and increase the amount of Love so the ratio is 1:1. Then reduce the amount of dry or canned food until you are feeding Love only. By changing your pets diet over slowly to the new food, their intestinal tract has time to adjust and will become more efficient at digesting the new food.
Each dry measured cup of Love should be mixed with 1 to 1 ½ cups of warm water. After stirring, let sit for 5-10 minutes for the mixture to hydrate. It will resemble oatmeal or a stew when ready to serve. At this point, you can mix in your pet’s choice of vegetables, fruit raw or cooked meats or bones. Serve right away. If the dog doesn't finish the serving, be sure to pick up the remainder and refrigerate until the next meal. If there is any food remaining after 48 hours, discard.
When mixing by the guidelines the hydrated mix will yield the following:
|4 oz. or 1 cup||makes about 1 lb of fresh food|
|4 lbs or 16 to 17 cups||makes about 16 to 17 lbs of fresh food|
Serve the proper measure of dry Love, as per the dog’s weight, in a bowl with warm water as per the mixing instructions above. The following daily amounts can be adjusted to suit the variations of breed, age and level of activity as required for each dog.
|Dog's Weight||Less Active Dogs||Very Active Dogs|
|Up to 10 lbs||1/2 Cup||1 Cup|
|Up to 30 lbs||1 Cup||2 Cups|
|Up to 50 lbs||2 Cups||2 Cups|
|Up to 70 lbs||2 1/4 Cups||4 1/2 Cups|
|Up to 90 lbs||2 3/4 Cups||5 1/2 Cups|
Although a ½ or 1 cup may not seem like a lot for one serving, remember that one cup ends up equal to one pound of fresh. Then if you add in extras for the dog, this becomes an even bigger serving. Therefore serve on the lighter side to begin with and increase only if more is necessary.
