Key Ingredients

HIGH-QUALITY PROTEINS 
Protein is essential for all bodily functions, including those of the brain, heart, muscles, skin, skeleton and others. This healthy dog food contains at least 26% high-quality protein. 

Chicken Meal
Chicken meal is the first ingredient in this natural dog food recipe. Some foods contain whole chicken or chicken parts, which naturally contain a fair amount of water. We use chicken meal because most of the water has been removed, making it a concentrated source of protein. This means that there is a greater “protein content” in one pound of chicken meal versus one pound of whole chicken or chicken parts. 

Eggs 
Eggs are considered a complete protein source, providing essential amino acids, vitamins and minerals. Eggs also contain healthy fats, such as omega-6 for healthy skin and a glossy coat. 

Catfish Meal 
Our top-quality fish meal is made by drying the freshest catfish at a lower temperature, creating a concentrated, digestible protein source. In addition to being an excellent source of protein, catfish meal provides natural DHA and EPA, the most important omega-3 fatty acids.

ANTIOXIDANT SYSTEM
A dog’s body is designed to create only a certain amount of antioxidants on its own. That is why we cannot over-emphasize the importance of antioxidants. This healthy dog food contains an antioxidant system including guaranteed amounts of vitamins C and E.

Fruit and Vegetables
Dried blueberries, carrots, celery, broccoli, beets, parsley, lettuce, watercress and spinach.

FATS
Chicken Fat
We believe the primary fat source in dog food should be animal based because canines derive significant nutrition from these fats. While vegetable oils may sound healthier, dogs actually need the specific nutrients found in animal fats that are not available in vegetable sources. Additionally, there’s great variation in the quality of animal fats, so be sure to verify that the source is species-specific (like “chicken fat”, not “animal fat”). 

Omega 3 Fatty Acids 
The benefits of essential fatty acids are well known, as omega-3s are some of the most extensively researched, naturally occurring nutritional ingredients in the world. The guaranteed amount of omega-3s in Life’s Abundance dog food helps support healthy skin, shiny coats and overall wellness. 

Other Healthy Fat
Sources Our dog food also contains flaxseed meal and eggs, which are excellent sources of healthy fats.

GRAINS
Whole grains contain protein, fiber, B vitamins, iron, zinc and other minerals. They also provide the kind of carbohydrates that deliver sustained energy to your dog. We include the natural goodness of Ground Brown Rice and Oat Groats in our Life’s Abundance dog food. 

Ground Brown Rice
Ground Brown Rice is the entire grain with only the inedible outer husk removed. This whole grain contains seven minerals and five B vitamins 

Oat Groats 
Oat Groats are whole oats that have been cleaned, toasted, hulled and cleaned again. Amazingly, they retain nearly all of their original nutrients after this process. Oat groats also contain seven minerals and five B vitamins.

OTHER KEY INGREDIENTS
Prebiotic Fiber
Prebiotics are non-digestible food ingredients that stimulate the growth of good bacteria in the digestive system. Our dog foods contain the prebiotic fructooligosaccharide. 

Probiotics
Probiotics are good bacteria and help support healthy immune and digestive systems. Unlike other pet food companies, we guarantee the amount of four different health-promoting probiotics in our dog food. 

Brewer’s Dried Yeast
Brewer’s Dried Yeast is loaded with digestible protein with an excellent amino acid balance. It also contains natural vitamins and minerals. 

Beet Pulp (Sugar Removed) 
Fiber is important to maintain a healthy intestinal tract and proper nutrient absorption. We use beet pulp, which is fiber from the gray sugar beet (sugar removed). Many studies have demonstrated that beet pulp performs better than many other types of fiber.

Feeding Instructions
The exact amount of food needed for your dog will vary according to age, temperament, activity level and environment. Start by feeding the recommended amount based on your dog’s actual weight, not the desired weight. These feeding amounts are guidelines and may be adjusted (increased or decreased) to achieve your goal. Weight loss should not exceed 1% of your dog’s total body weight weekly, unless recommended by your veterinarian. (For example, if your dog weighs 50 pounds, a 1% weight loss would be ½ pound.) Once you decide on a feeding amount, we suggest you divide that amount into two to four small meals and feed over the course of a day. When switching to Life’s Abundance Weight-Loss Formula For Adult Dogs, gradually feed less of your previous food and more Life’s Abundance Weight-Loss Formula For Adult Dogs over a one-week period to complete the transition. 

For a successful weight-loss program, we recommend that you do the following: weigh your dog; determine an appropriate weight-loss goal; feed the appropriate amount of weight-loss food; make adjustments periodically according to changes in your dog’s weight; if at all possible, make sure your dog exercises daily unless contraindicated by your veterinarian; refrain from feeding table scraps and high-calorie treats; keep a journal of your dog’s weight-loss progress.
