Description

NRG Optimum Large Breed & Active Canine Wild Caught Salmon Dehydrated Raw Dog Food uses ingredients that recall a time when working dogs ate food prepared in the family kitchen. Crafted with both cooked and raw dehydrated wild-caught Alaskan salmon along with fresh fruits and vegetables, NRG Optimum is recommended for large breeds, canine athletes and dogs that are new to all-natural feeding. The mix of vegetable and oat fiber soothes the intestinal tract of dogs whose size or activity dictates that their bowl must be filled to the brim.

Feeding Instructions

Dehydration essentially preserves the enzymes in whole food by removing the moisture to slow their activity. To prepare dehydrated foods for consumption, water is simply added back to the food. For every cup of dry food measured add 1/2 - 3/4 cup of warm water. Mix well and allow to refresh for 20 - 30 minutes before serving. For more complete digestion and smaller stools, split the ration into 2 feedings, morning and evening, refrigerate leftovers.

For every 20 lbs your dog weighs feed approximately 1 cup of NRG dry measures. Dogs, just like people may require more or less than the suggested serving depending on activity level and age.

Transition Instructions

When switching your dog’s diet, we recommend that it be done gradually over a 5 – 7 day period.

    Best Dehydrated I Have Found So Far

    By on

    Great large quantity size options which is amazingly more cost effective for feeding 4 dogs and 1 being a giant breed, 1 large, and the other two are small. Dogs love it although I suggest soaking over night as it does have big chunks and my little ones had a hard time while still partially hard. Otherwise fantastic for my picky eater and my food allergy crazy dogs.

    My go-to food when I don't home cook

    By on

    I have a four yr old boxer, that could have pre- kidney disease, my holistic vet has him on several herb meds and NRG is the only food that I have found to keep his cre-ps and bun levels down. In Jean Dodds book "Canine Nutrigenomics" NRG is one food she recommends. I have tried several of the others Dr. Dodds listed, but NRG is the keeper.

    Amazing Food

    By on

    I am a vet tech and a nutritionist and have searched for a long time to find a food this good. I re-hydrate it and put it on top of the rest of their food, and they eat it right down. I raise Anatolian Shepherds and they are typically not fast eaters, nor food motivated. They do eat this stuff as soon as I put it down. I love the ingredients and the fact that it's raw! The only thing I wish is that it was cheaper! This stuff is WAY too expensive to feed as anything other than a sprinkle on top. I figured it out at 4 pounds of food a day, for ONE of my 130 pound dogs, would work out to $500 dollars a month to feed ONE dog. Obviously not feasible.

    The NRG dehydrated dog food is an excellent food. My four dogs love it. The only problem is that it is to expensive for a multi family dog household.

    Quality dehydrated food

    By on

    I've fed the Maxim salmon and bison to our dogs previously (Siberian Husky and Belgian Tervuren) as an occasional meal, or when they are staying with friends (they typically get a mix of high quality kibble and raw meat/veggies I prepare myself) and they both loved it, figured I'd try the Optimum since it's a little less expensive. They both still love it, and I do like it too - I would prefer that all the meat be raw, but it's not that big a deal. A little better bang for the buck than many of the other dehydrated/freeze-dried raw foods out there. Now if only they'd come out with a Venison formula...
