Frequently asked questions
Is Fresh food good for my dog? Is it better than kibble?
Fresh food works wonders for the overall well-being of our dogs— promoting heart health, increasing energy level, making coats shiny and breath smell better, improving eyesight, to improve and better smelling poop! As pet obesity, cancer, and diabetes rise at alarming rates, there is a growing body of scientific evidence that points to the health benefits of a fresh food diet.
As dog parents, we have been feeding a fresh diet to our dogs since they were puppies and have seen first-hand the positive impact it has had on their health.
Eating heavily-processed foods, such as fries, burgers, hotdogs, etc., as a major diet component can lead to serious health problems in humans. Commercial dog foods are the canine version of fast foods, and they are very harmful for our little one. Here are a few reasons:
Many of the nutrients in kibble are lost during the high-heat process, so flavor enhancers and synthetic nutrients are added to replace what has been lost. Different types of carcinogens are created in this process that could be detrimental to our dog’s long-term health.
They are usually made from 4-D meat (Meat from dead, dying, diseased and disabled animals).
It contains a very high quantity of preservatives and other nasties. Ask yourself how can something that stays in a packet for years without getting spoiled be good for health?
Kibble is a low-moisture product, which puts a dog in a constant state of dehydration. Imagine eating nothing but dry biscuits. Dehydration can lead to other health problems.
There’s no way to know what you are feeding! Brown Pellets are not food.
Dogs have thrived for centuries alongside man even before commercial dog food was invented. Commercial dog food became the norm for most household canines only after a massive marketing campaign led by a group of dog-food industry lobbyists called the Pet Food Institute in 1964 in the US.
Choose the best for your little one.

Our recipes are carefully prepared by a canine nutritionist and are safe to transition to. However, feel free to consult your vet before switching. We will be happy to work with your veterinary nutritionists if your dog has specific dietary requirements.
Why can’t I just cook dog food at home?
Of course you can! We believe in home cooked meals for our little ones.
