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

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.

  • I really wanted to like this

    By on

    Hydrated, it looked and smelled like real food. I thought my dog would love it, but after a week he started turning up his nose at it, and normally, my dog will eat most anything. I've been able to finish the bag by mixing it with canned food, which has made for much cleaner meal times. On its own, this has the consistency of crumbled hamburger and a good portion of it ends up on the floor and my dog didn't like it enough to clean it up.

    I have a golden retriever and cocker spaniel who have gotten to be fairly picky dog food eaters. They immediately loved the NRG food and it seems to suit their needs.

  • Very impressive food

    By on

    I have taken one of my dogs completely off commercial kibble for several reasons. One being that I question the long term health impact of feeding dry kibble and two, for the obvious skin and coat issues presented by one of my dogs in particular. This food is impressive! It is also aafco certified which is a consideration when feeding a 'complete' homemade diet. This food is considered for SMALL breed dogs but my GSD gets a cup as a topdressing along with a base mix and additional raw meat. He goes ballistic for his meals! It is all pricey and since the cost of feeding 'raw' is a consideration, I am doing a cost price evaluation, raw vs commercial kibble; that said, I AM re-ordering this excellent I have taken one of my dogs completely off commercial kibble for several reasons.

  • I reordered. My pups eat it with enthusiasm

    By on

    I like to keep this on hand for the times I forget to get meat out of the freezer. It also adds some variety to their diet and it's easy to mix up some for my husband to feed the pups.
