Welcome to All Paws Retreat Store!
Dear Fellow Dog Lover,
A big trend right now in pet food is feeding new protein sources. While we have wanted to offer pet parents other protein options, it has been a struggle to find a source that meets our standards. Most proteins, outside of poultry and fish, are not all that great – they typically run higher in ash and lower in protein. One ingredient and source we have been watching is buffalo. It has been available to us for over four years and after monitoring the supply for quality and consistency during that period of time, last year we finally pulled the trigger and ran a test batch. After feeding it to our personal dogs and dozens of others since, we could not be any more pleased with the results!
The food starts with very very low-ash buffalo that is EU approved. What does this mean? It means that the buffalo meat used in the Grain Free Red Meat Recipe has almost no ash (ground up bone and other stuff that has little to no nutritional value) and lots of high-quality protein and fat. EU-approved simply means that if the meat used in the buffalo meal is not good enough for you to consume, it is not good enough to go in our food. Buffalo is then followed-up by Lamb and low-glycemic index, grain alternative ingredients, like chickpeas and lentils. We also added the Green-lipped Sea Mussel for natural joint and connective tissue health.
Lastly, like all of our diets, the Grain Free Red Meat Recipe is formulated without low-grade ingredients that are harder for your dog to digest and may be harmful to his health. Some of these ingredients include animal by-product meal, cheap fillers, any sort of gluten (e.g., corn gluten), and artificial preservatives, flavors, and colors.
Our goal is not to just feed your pup’s tummy, but to energize their mind, body, & soul.
