A prey model diet has as its main objective to stick to a diet more similar to the one that the ancestors of our 4-legged friends evolved to eat for millions of years. Best known as Primordial Diet.
It is based on the whole PREY criteria, as if it had been hunted in the wild, because physiologically speaking our dear furry ones are identical to wolves with a small variation of no more than 2% in their genetic information. Teeth, stomach and digestive tracts are designed to consume COMPLETE DAMS. This means that it includes bones, organs, muscles, skin,glands, leather / feathers, guts, fat and other types of tissues. It is also important to alternate protein sources throughout the year.
Unlike BARF, its formulation is based on 70% raw fleshy bones and some organs, the rest "meat", semi-cooked vegetables, and supplements.
It is 100% safe for your dog to eat raw meat. In their nature dogs / wolves did not cook their prey. It is worth mentioning that all our meats are suitable for human consumption, from local rancheries, grass fed cattle. We alternate ingredients with seasonal changes, guaranteeing the freshness of all our burgers.
All our meats have a strict 72-hour cold chain.
Processing meat with heat alters its molecular structure, resulting in a significant loss of nutrients.
ALPHAVET is a premium brand with a whole prey model in its formulation that uses fresh, premium ingredients in every bite. All our ingredients are carefully selected and alternated to guarantee complete and balanced nutrition with a variation in the menus according to the season, so your dog has access to a wider range of different nutrients all year long. Helping your dog thrive.
As we explained previously, in ALPHAVET we do not do barf.
We do not use starches or fillers of any kind. All our ingredients are carefully selected and alternated to guarantee a thriving and balanced nutrition.
Not exactly, ALPHAVET is friendly to all stomachs. Although we would like to suggest a transition method that brings many benefits. Give your dog a fast day before switching to a natural diet. Your dog will be more hungry and open / interested in accepting new flavors and you give its digestive system time to empty and rest before having a change in feeding.
NOTE: If your dog has gastric problems or is in a adult/senior stage, we suggest only giving him a soft diet (bone broth, natural/greek yogurt without sugar, fresh water and perhaps some fruit that he might fancy) in the first day and the day after you start with ALPHAVET.
NO! ALPHAVET is served raw, you just need to peel off the plastic film and thaw the hamburger for a period of 30 to 60 minutes directly on your dog's dish. Cooking hamburgers would take away the benefit of a raw diet, since cooking it will kill important enzymes, destroying most of the vitamins and minerals at the same time, altering the functionality of ALPHAVET.
Yes and no.
We suggest that if you want to do it, you better do it in different meals (one raw and one kibble), if you want to mix with your kibble, we suggest you do not exceed 15% of the total of your dog's dish, since the crude proteins against those processed by heat, have different digestion times and different digestive enzymes are required, therefore we cannot guarantee 100% functionality of the food. We have other options instead of combining dry food with meat, get in touch with us and we will guide you.
