Proactive Recipe Formulations

NRC or FEDIAF

Proactive recipes are meant for healthy, adult dogs. They are tailored to your dog’s individual needs based on a variety of factors including age, weight, breed, activity level, intact/neuter status, and health history. Recipes may be raw, cooked, or a combination.

Recipe ingredients are determined by what you have available, any intolerances your dog may have, and nutritional bioavailability.  While I focus on using whole foods, supplements may be required for certain health concerns and/or ingredient limitations due to sourcing or dietary intolerances. All recipes come with:

  • Daily and batch ingredients of either one, two, or four weeks
  • Detailed instructions on prepping, storing, and feeding your dog's recipe
  • Any applicable notes on ingredient choices
  • Transition guides from any kibble/canned foods for sensitive stomachs
  • Any additional recommended support in the form of nutraceuticals
  • Links to any necessary supplements
  • Two weeks of support following recipe delivery

Please note that the following health concerns are not considered proactive, and will require a therapeutic recipe:

  • Moderate to severe arthritis
  • Moderate to severe allergies, including those with more than three protein intolerances
  • Weight management with a required loss or gain of over 10 lbs.
