Most dog owners’ number one goal is to know their canine companions are living their best life. Yet too many dogs are being sold short when it comes to one of the critical foundations for achieving a long, healthy and happy life — NUTRITION.
The influential marketing myths created by giant pet food corporations have misled consumers for decades about what constitutes healthy dog food, so much so that the accepted norm for dog food is about as far from natural feeding as it’s possible to get.
Sadly, intensively processed, additive filled food with little nutritional value has become the main staple of many dogs’ diets. We aim to redress the narrative about what healthy dog food actually is and help more dogs experience the effects of a fresh, natural diet by:
1. Creating raw dog food meals, premium support supplements and natural treats that are convenient, clean and as close to nature as a dog’s diet can get
2. Raising awareness and providing education on the nutritional science-backed truth about dog food.
Heidi thought she’d given her boys the best of everything, including the best food. Yet despite her good-hearted intentions, they still developed a devastating disease. Something didn’t add up and Heidi made it her mission to find out why this had happened to her beloved boys. After lots of research, the facts were becoming more and more apparent – dogs have evolved to thrive on a fresh, natural diet consisting of meat, bone, and organ meats.
Armed with this information, the light bulb moment came after reading the ingredient breakdown on the back of the bag of kibble she had fed to her dogs. The ‘stuff’ in the bag was so far away from the natural food that dogs are designed to eat it was astonishing. After digging deeper, Heidi started to see through the exceptionally clever marketing messages many processed pet food companies use. Determined to help other loving dog owners do better for their dogs’ health and happiness, ProDog was born.
“At least as humans, we have a choice over what we eat. Dogs are 100% reliant on their owners to fill their food bowls. I want to make sure dog owners are armed with the facts and resources to give them the food nature intended.”
Switching to a quality raw food diet is proven to deliver exceptional health benefits to dogs.
Here’s what to expect:
Find out more about the benefits of raw feeding.
We believe dogs deserve the absolute best when it comes to nutrition, so we’ve created our extensive range of raw dog food, canine nutritional support supplements and healthy treats, selecting only quality, ethically sourced natural ingredients.
We offer an extensive range of food options, all carefully designed to offer flexibility and variety for every dog, regardless of age or nutritional requirement. Our recipes are expertly formulated and endorsed by veterinary professionals. ProDog Raw are delighted to work alongside the Raw Feeding Veterinary Society.
By feeding ProDog Raw you can be assured you are providing your dog with optimal nutrition. Packed with the essential vitamins, minerals, proteins and fats they require to thrive and live a healthy, happy life.
We never use industry-standard fillers and only ever species-appropriate ingredients, ensuring every single component delivers the vital nutrients essential to a dog’s health. All our British sourced ingredients are from DEFRA approved and British Farm certified sources. ALL our meat comes from human-quality production sources, either ethically managed wild sources or farms operating with the best possible welfare practices (and, wherever possible, the livestock is pasture reared).
More about FEDIAF guidelines
FEDIAF is the organisation which sets out the nutritional guidelines for all pet food in Europe. FEDIAF nutritional guidelines consist of recommended nutrient levels for pet foods based on scientific review of vast numbers of peer-reviewed pet food nutrition studies.
The recommendations provide minimum and maximum nutrient levels needed to prevent deficiencies from developing or nutrient toxicity from occurring. Whilst the guidelines are voluntary recommendations, as opposed to legal requirements, we chose to tweak our recipes to meet the standards to offer you even more nutritional quality assurance.
As a dog owner, this means that by feeding ProDog Complete Formula or Puppy Formula raw meals, you can feel confident you are providing the building blocks necessary for optimal canine health.
Whilst FEDIAF guidelines lay out recommended nutrient levels, they do not differentiate between synthetic and wholefood forms of those nutrients. Our expert nutritional team is committed to ensuring every ingredient in ProDog products are from wholefood sources because nutrients taken from natural sources are far more bioavailable and digested more effectively than synthetic ones.
Ultimately, this means we are confident the nutrient content of our food is easily absorbed and assimilated by the canine digestive system, therefore exceeding FEDIAF minimal expectations, with the aim of ensuring your dog truly thrives.
We formulate our quality all-natural supplements as food topper powders to be easily added to your dog’s dinner, regardless of what’s in the bowl. ProDog supplements are designed to add mealtime enrichment to any type of dog food kibble, tinned dog food, insect diet, vegan, raw etc. Each supplement is expertly blended to provide targeted support, offering nutritional solutions for the nine most common areas of canine health and wellness.
Our dog supplements are made with ingredients that are species-appropriate and bioavailable, meaning that a dog’s body can easily extract the nutrient content from each component. We only ever use natural ingredients from wholefood sources, such as recognised superfoods, nutraceuticals, herbs and functional foods.
We do not include dairy-based whey in our protein blends. Instead, we use proteins derived from plant-based sources. As such, even those dogs with a more sensitive constitution can digest the natural ingredients found in these supplements. Containing zero fillers or bulking agents, every single element has a specific purpose and is selected to work in perfect synergy, ensuring our supplements provide powerful natural nutritional support.
Treat consumption is where a healthy diet can fall short for some dogs. This is why sourcing the best quality, healthy treats is essential so that you can reward your dog without nutritional compromise. Whether treats factor in your dog’s lifestyle to help with training, enrichment activities, or to simply spoil your dog, we have a tasty reward to suit.
ProDog’s range of healthy dog treats are gently dehydrated or air dried to preserve the nutritional composition. Intensively refined and processed dog food and treats are created using very high heat temperatures, destroying the nutritional quality of the raw ingredients. Therefore, we ensure all our treats are created using gentle processes that allow the ingredients to remain as close to their natural form as possible.
All are made from quality proteins with zero colourings, E numbers or synthetic preservatives.
