Turkey Meal Icon


Turkey is an excellent source of highly digestible lean protein. We source fresh, un-processed turkey and fully cook it without any oil or seasonings.

Beef Meal Icon


Beef is high in protein and minerals your dog needs for energy and overall health. We use fresh, 85% lean ground beef with no hormones, steroids, or growth-promoting antibiotics.

Carrot Meal Icon


Carrots are packed with vitamin A and beta carotene to keep their eyes healthy and coat shiny. We fully cook the carrots in our recipes to ensure easy absorption of these essential nutrients.

Rice Meal Icon


Rice is an easily digestible complex carbohydrate that fuels the body and mind while supplying calcium, iron, and multiple B vitamins and soothing the digestive system.

Apples Meal Icon


Apples are loaded with antioxidants and vitamin A and C for improved heart and skin health. We core our apples but leave the skin on for an extra fiber boost.

Cauliflower is high in fiber, as well as vitamins K and C, calcium, potassium, and folate to help support your dog’s immune system, vision, blood, liver, and more.

Broccoli Meal Icon


Broccoli is full of vitamin C, fiber, and potassium while being low in fat. We gently cook fresh broccoli without seasoning for easy digestion.
