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 NRF dry measure. Dogs, just like people, may require more or less than the suggested serving depending on activity level and age.

  • The 2.2-lb bag makes 8.8 pounds of raw dog food
  • The 15.5-lb box makes 62 pounds of raw dog food

Transition Instructions

Any diet change should be gradual. Loose stools often result in a quick diet change if your dog has been fed the same food for months or even years. This happens because the bacteria in the large intestine become accustomed to a certain PH in the intestine and a sudden change in diet shocks these bacteria and they signal the intestinal lining (lumen) to release water in an attempt to return the PH to what they are used to.


Frequently Asked Questions

Can I mix NRG with other foods?

While feeding NRG as a sole diet will provide the best of benefits for your pet, lifestyle decisions dictate what and how your pet is fed. NRG can be fed in conjunction with other diets to your champion pet with amazing results.

I feed kibble, can I top it with NRG instead of canned food?

NRG is the premium replacement for canned food. Our diets are powerfully palatable and rich in all the natural vitamins and minerals your dog requires.

I feed raw. Is NRG compatible?

If a raw diet is part of your feeding protocol, NRG can be a positive addition. Offer NRG as a separate meal daily to provide the balanced portion of the diet. This will maximize the contribution to your pets’ good health.

Why does Maxim contain wheat germ?

Many dogs today have an intolerance for grains. The trigger for this intolerance is gluten and wheat germ does not contain any gluten. We include wheat germ in all our formulas because it is the most digestible natural source of many nutrients.

I have been told my dog is allergic to grain. Which NRG diets can my dog eat?

Dogs that have an allergy to grain are usually intolerant to the gluten in wheat as it has been overused in pet food for decades. In human medicine people with wheat allergies substitute oats and we find many dogs with a wheat intolerance can do very well on Vital II and Optimum. Maxim is the obvious choice if your dogs last reaction to any grain was severe.

  • My dog wont eat the food, let me explain....

    By on

    Anyone in North Seattle want a free bag of food. Our old dogs loved this stuff, but our small one has been eating all meat and wont touch the stuff. It does smell like a lot of grain.

  • Looking positive - after several years of trial and error!

    By on

    Within 24 hours of switching to this diet, my 3 pups' stools firmed up plus tummy gas + bad breath almost disappeared. I have since added the NRG chicken grain free product with same results. NOTE: my pups also get home cooked chichen+veggies+fish in their diet periodically (in addition to the NRG base). But after several weeks out, I am pleased with the quality of this diet and the excellent results we're experiencing so far. I think it's a great and safe alternative to feeding strictly raw.

    This is a great product. I first used it years ago and found it really helped to keep my working border collies in great condition. I was glad to see it available here for order. NRG is very palatable!
