Our Recommended Nutrition and Vitamin Supplement
We’d love to share our experience with dog food and supplements with you! There are so many choices out there and so many misleading advertisements, we’ll share with you what we’ve decided to feed and let you know how to keep feeding the same food and how to give the same supplement we love after you take your puppy home.
We offer a 2 year hip/elbow guarantee and a lifetime health guarantee against all of the hereditary diseases known to Labradors that we test against. In order to keep that guarantee, you must keep your puppy on Life’s Abundance and NuVet. If you have another extremely high quality feed in mind, please let us know and we may approve it. There are many reasons we think Life’s Abundance and NuVet stand apart but we do understand that there are other high quality foods on the market. We’ve seen even the healthiest of puppy’s live an unhealthy life because of the food they were given so making sure your puppy is getting proper nutrition is very important! You can order both the food and the supplement online and have them ready for when your bring your new puppy home. If you have any questions about this, please let us know!
Our food- Life’s Abundance Large Breed Puppy
We’ve found a very big difference between big, commercial dog food companies and smaller, local, family-owned companies. Life’s Abundance has proven to us time and time again how they care for our pets through their extreme attention to the high quality of their feed and their high quality of the products they offer.
Too often commercial brands end up outsourcing and cheapening their ingredients (especially the types of protein) to increase their profit. We have to worry about fillers, GMOs, and animal by-products. And then of course there are new recalls and reports of contamination all the time. There were 21 recalls in 2016 alone, including Blue Buffalo and Science Diet. Blue Buffalo just had another recall in January 2017.
We do everything we can from a breeding standpoint to give your puppy the best chance of a happy and healthy life. We also know that what goes into your pet’s body is at the core of their overall health as well. Dogs are not meant to consume corn and many breeds (including our labs) often have gluten and wheat sensitivities.
As Labrador breeders, we had to make a critical choice in foods, when considering the specific dietary needs of our breed. Labs are very sensitive to grains and by-products, so it’s very important that we save our clients from suffering the heartbreak of a sub-par diet that may plague their new family member with a multitude of health issues.
Life’s Abundance is an employee owned pet food company, founded by veterinarian Dr. Jane Bicks over 20 years ago. Life’s Abundance All Life Stages Dog Food is not only holistic, but it also contains important pre and pro-biotics that aid in your dog’s overall gut health and digestion. These key ingredients, including several other needed vitamins, also support your dog’s overall immune system. Life’s Abundance is one of the only feeds that can guarantee live pre and pro-biotics because of their low heat cooking process. It is conviently shipped fresh to your door! No more hauling around big bags of food at the store. They charge the same low shipping cost no matter how much you order, most of our customers order larger quantities a couple times a year. Life’s Abundance gives you the ability to “auto-ship” that you can adjust anytime online, it’s really user friendly.
The excerpt below is taken from Life’s Abundance website:
“At Life’s Abundance, we make healthy living easier with products that are inspired by nature and informed by science. With a focus on safety, it is our commitment to use as many natural ingredients as possible, to ensure our product’s quality and efficacy, and to back it up with first-class customer service.”
There are lots of really good choices of dog food, and we have tried many, and we’ve found that we like Life’s Abundance the best. It’s around $3/lb delivered to your door, so it’s cost sensitive for being a high end food.
Our Supplement: NuVet Plus- www.nuvet.com/42487
After extensive testing with many different combinations of ingredients, scientists formulated NuVet Plus. We’ve seen such a HUGE difference in our labs since we’ve given them this wonderful supplement. This unique formula consists of precise amounts of vitamins, minerals and high-potency antioxidants that, when combined, create a synergistic and powerful boost to the immune system.
We’ve watched the difference in their skin, coat, energy level, and overall health! NuVet supplements are great additions to our lab’s daily diet. NuVet dog supplements will not only offer great nutrition for your lab, but will also assist with the prevention of many illnesses.
Major considerations in formulating NuVet Plus were the human grade quality of ingredients and their nutritional values, as well as the bio digestibility and utilization into the cellular framework. We also considered the chemicals and toxins that find their way into our animals’ food. NuVet Plus was formulated to combat these harmful pollutants. NuVet Labs has designed a cutting edge formula that we believe will help increase your lab’s longevity and quality of life.
NuVet scientists performed extensive research and experiments with a variety of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and herbs, until they created NuVet Plus, which provides a powerful synergistic defense against the harm caused by free radicals.
We have seen a HUGE difference since we’ve started giving NuVet Plus to our Labs. This is by far the best supplement on the market, they’ve even patented the way they cold press their human grade ingredients into the supplement. We HIGHLY recommend that you give this supplement daily to your puppy! We’ve give it to the puppies once they reach 5 lbs while they are with us.
We recommend the NuVet Wafers.
