An optimally balanced diet built just for your adult dog with functional support protocols to help them thrive
All diet formulations for adult dogs provide all of the nutrients they need and those nutrients are balanced to meet nutrition standards for canine adult maintenance with the dog’s breed(s) and specific physiology + genetic profile (if available) taken into account.
I use breed knowledge & experience to configure how best to plan your dog’s daily energy intake.
Food science is used to correctly select biologically available and highly digestible ingredients.
NRC 2006 guidelines are utilized for check + balance and experience is used to appropriately set nutrient levels.
It is important to provide a complete diet that is balanced for your dog’s breed, age, metabolism, individual frame, & other specifics that are critical to feeding the dog in front of you.
Client On-Boarding Package
A welcome package outlining your formulation project details and timeframe.
I create a client portal where your documents are housed: All client forms, copies of emails, any medical records, laboratory analysis reports, medication information, etc. Careful documentation and reporting are needed to effectively track your pet’s nutritional health so any changes are uploaded here for future reference.
A Balanced Formulation
Your dog’s recipe(s) is formulated using canine nutrition guidelines recommended for your specific dog. The recipe that is formulated will not be applicable to another dog as the formulation is that specific.
I do not use chicken in formulations unless there is a specific reason, as it is a commonly problematic protein for dogs and provokes higher than desired omega-6 levels and often times visible symptoms of intolerance. Additionally, using better protein options allow for fewer additional ingredients.
Because each recipe is formulated for a dog’s needs and per canine nutrition guidelines, precise nutrition is at play. There aren’t substitutions that allow for across-the-board swapping without affecting the nutrients. The only cases of various foods that can be changed are some eggs, many veggies, and fruits. Each recipe includes one minor adjustment to the type of ingredients used for fiber and or antioxidants, as anything further than that would cause the recipe to be imbalanced and require a complete reformulation.
Reformulations are not included with any formulation project and are billed at a reduced 10% returning client discount.
Measured Ingredients List
I take the guesswork out of what to buy & how much to buy with a complete ingredients list that includes measurements for your balanced recipe. You can take this with you to the store or have it next to you for online shopping and use it to buy the amount you need based on your meal or batch size.
Functional Support Protocol + Gut Support Snack
The ingredients for the functional food snacks included in client formulation packages change through the year. Because of this, recurring clients end up with stacks of them to choose from. Below are the types of functional support protocols & snacks that are included:
• Antioxidant & Anti-inflammatory Skeletal Support Protocol
You don’t have to wait until your dog begins to show signs of wear & tear, you can proactively support your dog’s skeletal system from puppyhood forward.
My skeletal support protocol provides appreciable levels of the types of nutrition needed to help support the joints, ligaments, tendons, tissues, and muscles.
• Gut Support Snack
Gut support is important to provide your dog in a way that is appropriate for its breed. Not all probiotics and other forms of gut support work the same or as well in all breeds. Product information, and/or DY gut support ingredients and recipe instructions that are the best for your breed’s needs are included.
I provide two weeks of client email support so I can answer any questions you might have that are specific to the formulations and the ingredients used.
Client Offboarding Package
A wrap-up of your project and information regarding extended support options and a discount offer towards future services.
