Included With Every Recipe
Each recipe is uses nutrient-dense whole foods and supplements, as necessary, to create a meal plan that is complete and balanced for your pet. Each formulation is built from our pet’s specific nutritional requirements (NRC, FEDIAF or AAFCO), health status, condition, and growth stage. I only use ingredients listed on your intake form (based on what you say you can easily access), so meal plans are also affordable and practical for the owners.

Most frequent questions and answers
Recipes can be raw or cooked, your preference! For some pets, a cooked recipe is better, particularly for older animals, pets with GI issues, or with low appetite.
All recipes are balanced to nutritional standards set by the NRC, FEDIAF or AAFCO. When whole foods falls short, supplements may be included to meet your pet’s nutritional needs. I work with each owner to determine if they want to maximize whole foods (which may be more costly or require more prep time) or if they prefer to use affordable or easily accessible cuts (which may not be as nutritionally impactful).
Usually yes. I can also formulate to FEDIAF or AAFCO standards!
On your intake form, you list the whole foods that are easily accessible to you. Recipes are made with only these ingredients. Before the recipe is finalized, I will also send you a “final ingredient check”. This includes a list of all the foods included your recipe so far, so you can double check that you can source the ingredients easily, before the recipe is finalized.
Once the recipe is finalized, there is an additional fee if it requires ingredient changes if you are not able to source ingredients.
Before I finalize recipes and send out a recipe report, I send clients an “Ingredient Check”. This is a list of all the foods and supplements that would be included in the recipe. At this point, clients can request changes to the ingredient list for any reason so that the recipe is adjusted before it’s finalized.
Growth recipes for puppies also include further adjustments for growth, so that the recipe is appropriate throughout the growth process.
If you need an adjustment after the recipe report is complete, an additional fee would apply.
Recipes are formulated for a single pet, unless you are specifically requesting a pack or clowder recipe. Since the recipe has been formulated for a specific pet, it may not be appropriate to use for other animals.
