Whole Food Pet Nutrition
For years, I've been creating custom pet food diets and treats for our community in the beautiful town of Telluride in southwest Colorado. They genuinely promote wellness and vitality, and are sourced from small, ethical ranches in Colorado. We now are offering our single protein treats and soon will have my whole food recipes available for your pet so you can see why our customers have written such amazing testimonials. Thank you, Marney Zafian
Hand prepared using only the best ingredients from small, ethical ranches
We put the utmost care in selecting the quality of ingredients that go into each recipe we make in our kitchen. Our proteins are sourced from local ranches in Colorado and are USDA Inspected. We are on a first name basis with the people we buy our ingredients from and truly believe they are the healthiest available.
Why a whole food diet?
“Let Your Food Be Your Medicine” – Hippocrates
Fresh, whole foods such as meat, bones, organs, fruits, vegetables, dairy, grains, fats, oils, herbs and spices offer our dogs highly digestible, nutrient rich food. Feeding a diet of whole foods protects your pet from the dangerous ingredients, additives, toxins and carcinogens found in many pet store food products.
When your dog or cat eats fresh whole foods in a balanced recipe, chosen for their individual needs, it can have a profoundly positive affect on their overall health and can actually heal an ailing animal. Most of the health problems of dogs and cats can be attributed to poor nutrition. When the body’s nutritional needs are met, it will have the tools to heal and repair itself.
The bottom line is; Commercial Kibble is inappropriate for pets. Dogs have a shorter intestine than humans, this means that food needs to move through the dogs’ GI tract within 12 hours of consumption. This is easily accomplished by feeding a whole food diet. When feeding dry kibble, it is impossible. The kibble is designed to take 24 hours to move through the pet and manages to absorb a massive amount of the body’s moisture to break down and digest the food. This leads to an overabundance of heat within the stomach, a depletion of moisture (which causes difficulty digesting, phlegm formation in the lower GI tract, inflammation and excess acidity) and slower blood circulation. The combined affects of processed foods on our pets have lead to the deterioration of genetic health.
Rather than try to create more hy-breeds without so many genetic issues, let’s fix the problem and bring integrity back to feeding our pets. They live to love us, let’s give them what they need to be nourished and live healthy, long lives.
Why Choose Us?
Did you know that 1 in 4 dogs will die from Cancer? Obesity, allergies, and arthritis have reached epidemic levels among our pets. These are exacerbated by processed foods and inferior ingredients. As our testimonials show, pets that go on our diets show amazing improvements in their overall health and live a much happier life.
At the core of our products is the belief that pets thrive when fed high quality, species appropriate food and treats. To provide your pet with ideal nutrition, we meticulously source our proteins from small farms, who exemplify natural and ethical farming practices. Most other brands source their proteins from large industrial farms with meats that have never been inspected, or just get them cheaply produced in India or China. We make our food and treats by hand choosing only the best quality cuts of protein, while using green practices and packaging them in recyclable bags.
We make everything from our hearts to help make our earth and your pets’ healthier!
