Esmerelda's Dog Grub™
Q: What does your dog food do for my dog?
A: Switching your dog from processed commecial food--which is primarily the left over scraps from the manufacture of processed food for humans and no longer of quality for human consumption --can change the energy level of your dog, help them maintain an ideal weight, and generally improve your dog's quality and length of life! The overall health of your dog is so impacted by what they are fed. Loose stools, diarrhea, (we know, yucky but these are a true barometer of how your dog is processing their food) obesity, lethargy, lack of enthusiasm at meal time, are all signs that the commercial food that we've been told is the only choice, is not the very best choice. Talk to your vet as we did, and you will probably be told that nutrition is woefully under-represented in a vet's education and the major pet food companies actually underwrite a portion of vet ed and vet practices. Here are some other opinions on this concept: http://www.dancingdogblog.com/2010/01/pet-food-industry-vets-undue-influence/ and http://rmb4healthypets.blogspot.com/2009/10/assume-food-needs-to-be-manufactured.html
Q: So how do I make the switch??
A: What we recommend is a transition from your dog's current diet by gradually lessening and replacing the amount of store bought food with EDG and your dog will become accustomed to their new diet with a minimum of stress to their digestive system. Some of our customers prefer to make Esmerelda’s Dog Grub their pets only food right away after they research the ingredients in the store bought food. You can look up a glossary of what some of that technical ingredient jargon REALLY means by visiting this webpage: http://www.petfoodratings.net/glossary.html.
Q: How will I know if the Grub is working for my dog?
A: You will see a shiny coat, you should see/feel the curvature of their rib bones that define the transition from chest to abdomen be maintained or return. No matter if you feed your dog once per day or if you do as we do and switch your dog to two feedings, your dog will get very excited when you grab the EDG zipper bag (or any other zipper bag)! Esmerelda actually comes to us and looks one of us right in the eye and back at the fridge to let us know it’s dinner time. Our happy customers have reported the same phenomenon. Energy and vitality and even a return to wellness have been reported by EDG families.
Q: Is it a raw diet?
A: Not a raw diet, our chicken and beef are cooked!
Q: Is it Kibble? or Wet food?
A: Neither Kibble nor Wet, it is what we call FRESH! Cooked brown rice and pearled barley hand mixed with pulled chicken and ground beef and tossed with a mixture of vitamin rich leafy green and mixed veggies.
