OVEN BAKED DOG FOOD
Flint River Ranch, Super Premium All-Natural Formula, is slowly TWICE OVEN-BAKED under carefully controlled conditions and proper temperatures. This unique baking process changes the hard to digest molecules of "raw" starches into easy to digest dextrines. This process acts as a "pre-digest" of the kibble food, resulting in less strain on the dog's degestive system and produces a greater degree of food absorption. A dog's intestinal tract is short; it functions in the most effecient manner when the food is concentrated and can be quickly digested. The important vitamins, minerals and food ingredients are then easily assimilated into the dog's digestive system.
EXTRUSION vs QUALITY OVEN-BAKING:
Many companies prepare their food by steaming it as quickly as possible, usually less than 3 minutes, then extruding it under extreme pressure through a metal die (a steam extrusion process). This process expands the food with air creating a uniform shape. This method does not produce the highly digestible food that your dogs' system requires. This extruded food (cooked in a very short time) is usually almost "raw" and requires the addition of what many nutritionists feel are harmful chemical preservatives (Ethoxyquin, BHA, and BHT) to maintain a reasonable product shelf-life. These chemical products may be associated with dry skin, allergic reactions, dental disease, poor health and degenerative organ dysfunction.
In the oven-baking process, a small 2 inch size biscuit is baked, moving slowly through the oven - then broken into smaller, irregular kibble ranging in size from tiny morsels to about 1/2 inch. The smaller morsels are important as they will digest very quickly in the dog's system helping create immediate nutritional value for your pet. The larger, crunchy kibble naturally cleans teeth, exercises the gums and freshens breath. Since the food is concentrated, there is more value with less food consumed. Feeding oven-baked foods require 20-25% less food than steam- extruded foods. Pet owners will find less odor and stool clean-up. By feeding Flint River Ranch quality products, you will be able to see the difference in your pet's health, skin, coat, energy level and quality life-style.
Quality ingredients provide for a pets' healthy well-being by helping the pet's body holistically heal itself though healthy nutrition.
Whole wheat and selcted parts of the wheat berry are used as our base grain. Wheat grains are not only more digestible than corn, it is one of the most digestable source of carbohydrates, fiber and energy. A combination of grains, like a combination of meat, is better than just one source. Low quality fillers like wood fiber, corn cobs, peanut hulls, cottonsee, straw, soy beans or citrus pulp are not found in Flint River Ranch products.
Chicken meat is our base meat source, with the addition of lamb and a small amount of fish. There are no rendered by-products, intestines, heads, feet, or feathers in our formulas. The amino acids provided by the meats are the basic building blocks of muscle, skin, coat, bone, blood and the immune system.
VITAMINS and MINERALS:
Our minerals are chelated; bonded with amino acids (protein); highly effective in providing metabolic absorption. Our products are preserved with a combination of mixed Tocopherols (Vitamin E) and Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C). No harmful chemicals are used.
The different proteins in flax provide a high proportion base of unsaturated essential fatty acids and dietary fiber. Flax is recognized for its' potential in reducing the risk of chronic diseases; it helps improve thickness and sheen of hair coat. It provides a great benefit to oven-baked food as it resist oxidation from the baking process and improves product shelf life.
Nutritional requirements vary according to breed, age, activity and lifestyle. Feed at least 20% less of this high density kibble than other foods. Food is best introduced by mixing with your dogs regular food for one week. You may want to start out by mixing your pet's old food, about 75% to Flint River Ranch, 25%... decreasing old food each day. Have plenty of fresh water available.
PRICE COMPARISON (between our regular kibble and the Lamb/Millet/Rice formula)
When you compare the 40 pound regular Flint River Ranch with the 40 pound Lamb, Millet, and Rice, the price difference is about 9 cents a pound. A standard 9 ounce cup will hold 4.3 ounces of food. Feeding 2.5 to 3 cups a day is about 6 to 7 cents a day. It is far less expensive than prescription diet foods. "PLEASE CLICK ON THE LINKS BELOW FOR FULL DESCRIPTIONS AND INGREDIENTS"
