Dog Food Options

We have several different options when it comes to dog food and everyone has a different preference; from the ingredients to the style of food. We are going to provide a couple different option for you to decide what works best for your lifestyle!

As always, gradually switch your Frenchies’ food. Doing it abruptly can cause an upset stomach! We recommend:

4-5 days: 3/4 of the old food and 1/4 of new food

5-10 days: 1/2 of the old food and 1/2 of the new food

10-14 days: 1/4 of the old food and 3/4 of the new food

15 days and beyond: 100% New food

Any time you switch the dog food repeat this process.

If you have any questions, feel free to call or text Christina at 859-893-3862

What we feed:

Victor: Victor is what we feed all of our adults and puppies. This is also the food we send home with your bluegrass baby.  Victor is not usually in your local pet stores. However, you can find it on Amazon or Chewy. Victor has 3 different lines: Select, Classic, and Purpose.

Classic is designed for active dogs with multiple sources of grains and proteins. Natty will vouch for the purple bag “professional formula dry dog food” CLICK HERE FOR THE LINK

Select is suitable for dogs in all stages of life and is available in grain free options. This is the line we feed our adults and puppies. We like the Ocean fish formula with Alaskan salmon. We are currently feeding the Chicken Meal and Brown Rice Formula to our fur babies who LOVE IT! CLICK HERE FOR THE LINK

Purpose is appropriate for dogs with specific needs. Such as joint health, weight management, Senior healthy weight, or a low carb diet. The Purpose line is also available in a grain free options. CLICK HERE FOR THE LINK 

 

Hard Kibble:

Taste of the Wild: Pacific Stream. This is a grain free food option that is recommended for adult canines.

This is what we use to feed all of our puppies before switching them over to Victor. It is a prescription food so be sure to talk with your vet to see if this is the right option for your Frenchie. PLEASE ASK YOUR VET

Freeze dried:

Stella and Chewy: Duck Ducky Goose. This is the food Christina feeds her Frenchie, Peanut. Peanut would say it’s the “very, very, very, very, very, BEST”. Stella and Chewy is real raw nutrition in the convenience of freeze-dried patties. Serve as is or rehydrate by adding warm water. It is made in USA kitchens with cage-free poultry and 100% organic-certified fruits and vegetables. From Christina: “I love this food as it is easy to travel with and light weight. Peanut is a very picky eater. I tried to give her dry kibble but, she went on a hunger strike. I switched her over to Stella and Chewy and she comes dancing into the kitchen when she hears the bag open” CLICK HERE FOR THE LINK


Grandma Lucy’s Artisan: Chicken. Every single ingredient is chosen with a specific benefit in mind, inspected for quality and prepared in small batches at their family-owned California facility. This all-natural, grain-free recipe is an ideal choice for the pooch with food allergies or sensitivities. Features chicken as the very first ingredient along with specially chosen fruits and vegetables to quickly and easily improve your pup’s nutrient intake through food.
