Fresh Federally Inspected Lean Ground Meat
- Muscle Meat -


  • Proteins are the most important component of food for your dog.

    • Your dog needs protein to produce hair, nails, tendons, cartilage and all the connective tissues that support the rest of the tissues and organs in the dog's body.
    • Protein is most important for your dog's growth and proper development of muscles and strength.
    • Protein is also required for a functioning immune system, for production of hormones, proper volume of blood, the prevention of injury and injury repair.

  • When your dog eats protein:

    • Enzymes are secreted by the pancreas into the intestinal and these enzymes break the proteins down into short chains of amino acids small enough to be absorbed by the intestine.
    • Enyzmes play a role, often in conjunction with vitamins, in just about every body reaction. They are like the keys that unlock doors to chemical reactions. There are many different enzymes as each is the catalyst for one specific reaction. The pancreas secretes several kinds of enzymes that assist in digestion. In addition to to enzymes secreted by the panceaas, enzymes are present in fresh foods. In the case of older dogs, the panceas does not produce enough enzymes to break down their foods for optimal absorption of nutrients.
    • Essential amino acids are required by your dog and need to be supplied in your dog's food.  Foods that supply essential amino acids are called complete proteins.

  • Your dog can get proteins from many sources including plant sources but only proteins obtained from animal sources such as eggs, whole milk and lean meat are considered complete proteins.

    • The major source of your dog food should be the complete protein type.
    • Grains are another important source of proteins in dog foods but they are considered incomplete protein sources because they do not have some of the essential amino acids your dog needs.
    • Animal protein sources should be the major source of protein in your dog's diet not Soybean, wheat and corn.
    • That's not to say certain grains are not useful; rice, barley, oatmeal and spelt are good sources of carbohydrates, which your dog needs.
    • You should not feed your dog food that lists soybean meal, soy flour or corn gluten is the primary or even secondary source of protein.&esnp; Dogs do not have sufficient enzymes to digest them and use them as protein.
    • Remember, not all protein sources are equal. Some proteins are more digestible than others, digestible proteins can be broken down and absorbed by your dog's gastrointestinal tract easier and gives your dog the nutrients it needs.

  • Fresh Lean ground beef (higher in protein, lower in fat) and fresh liver will provide more of the essential and non essential amino acids much easier than by-products.  Meat is the most natural food for carnivors.

    • Labels can be misleading, dog fod manufacturers need only to list the amount of crude protein rather than the amount your dog can actually digest.  Manufacturers can and do include less-cost ingredients that provide less usable protein than you think.  Good quality beef carefully processed will be about 95% digestible while bi-product types will be about 75% digestible and is really about half the net usable protien of the good quality beef.  Sadly both labels will show the same crude protein content.

      • Various meat industry by-products listed by pet food manufacturers can contain poulty feather meal, connective tissues, leather meal, hooves, fecal waste from poultry and other animals and horse and cattle hair.
      • Dogs are only able to utilize about 75% of the protein found in these fibrous, tough ingredients and the meat meal is even less digestible due to the high cooking temperatures needed to sterilize it.  Another cheap ingredient used is Dried blood meal and it contains even less usable protein.
      • By-products listed on dog food lables are a cheap source of protein for these manufacturers.  They may contain all the essential and nonessential amino acids but in fact they basically only boost the crude protein level and provide relatively little nourishment for your dog.>

    • Better quality dog food such as Human Grade Canine Cuisine is more expensive to make, but you get what you pay for, and yet, still lower than commercial canned moist dog food!


Fresh Liver
- Organ meat -


  • Organ meats, like fresh liver, provide complete protein and are very digestible.

    • Organ meat such as Liver is a rich source of vitamins A,C,D,E,K,B2,B3,B5,B6,B12, biotin, Omega3 and Omega 6 fatty acids (lineolic acid), minerals, phosporous, potassium, zinc,manganese,selenium and iron.  (See sunflower oil, below for more details on fats.>


Whole Fresh Grade A Eggs

  • They are low caloric and are cooked to help dogs digest them properly.
  • Human Grade Canine Cuisine does not include vegetables high in oxalic acid, a compound that interferes with calcium absorption.
  • Vegetables are valuable in adding vitamins, minerals and roughage to the dog food.
    • Vitamins are not made by dogs themselves and they require 14 different types. Vitamins must be supplied in their food in order to participate in the numerous chemical reactions that help release the needed nutrients from the dog's food and help the dog's body to put those nutrients to use.
    • Dogs require both water soluble and fat soluble vitamins. Each promotes different necessary things. For example, Vitamine B12 is necessary for normal DNA synthesis and intestinal function, vitamin A is necessary for proper vision, bone growth, reproductin and maintenance of tissues and vitamin D is critical to the dog's ability to use calcium and phosphorus for bone and cartilage growth and maintenance.
      • POTATOES
        • Potatos are a complex carbohydrate, a good dietary fibre and provide antioxidant activity.
        • Potatoes are high in Vitamin C and Vitamin B plus minerals such as potassium, mangesium, copper and iron.
        • They also provide plenty of calories in the form of carbohydrates and protein.
      • Fruit

  • Every cell in your dog's body needs a continuous supply of carbohydrates, particulary in the form of glucose.  Glucose is important in the functioning of your dog's brain and muscles.
    • Carbohydrates can assist in the digestion of other nutrients, especially fats.
    • The level of carbs vary according to the dog's level of activity, health and overall energy levels.
    • Carbohydrates come in three basic forms: sugars, starches that are simple carbohydrates and celullose a complex carbohydrate.
    • Good sources of simple carbs are rice, oatmeal and wheat.
    • They are easy for your dog to digest when properly cooked.
    • They add texture and mouth feel to the food making it more palatable.
    • Dogs don't have the enzymes necessary to digest cellulose and therefore is used as fiber, which helps regulate water in your dog's large intestine and aids in the formation and elimination of feces. Carbohydrates make up the remainder of the bulk of the food after the fats, proteins, fiber and vitamins and minerals have been added.
  • Fiber is also an important component of dog food.

    • It provides the bulk to the food and helps the intestinal contents absorb water, which results in formed stools that are expelled.
    • If there is too little fiber, the dog may have loose stools, if too much it passes too quickly through the gastoinintestinal system producing hard and compacted stool
