What you NEED to know

Most of the pet food you can find at your local supermarket is made from low quality sources, even the big brands, and are elaborated from formulas that do not consider the real needs of your pet.

Your catahoula leopard dog needs a 100 % natural nutrition: meat, bones, veggies, and fats. 99% of the dog food you’ll find will mostly contain grains and low quality leftovers from the meat industry.

By feeding your dog a more natural way, you will rarely have to bring him to the vet: he’ll have highly reduced risk of diabetes, arthritis, parasites, allergies, tumors, renal failure, stomach twisting, … should I continue ?
He’ll have more vitality, healthy teeth and a nice, good smelling fur.
Basically, he’ll be living a longer, and happier life.
