Why Pack10 Natural & Organic Pet Food?
Pack10 is a specialty pet food company. We make hand crafted (gently cooked) meals and snacks for dogs and cats using only USDA certified meats. We make meat-only meals for cats, and limited ingredient meals for Dogs. Because we use only USDA quality meat protein, Pack10 meals provide for every aspect of your pet’s nutritional requirement without the need for artificial vitamins or minerals (all of these essential nutrients, amino acids, and vitamins come from fresh, quality meat protein and fat). Here’s why your animal needs a fresh source of protein ~
FELINES– All Meat Protein animals (Obligate Carnivores ~ cats). Require the same nutrients (from meat only), as Mountain lions. Felines in nature, would never eat anything dry, and require a diet consisting of 70% moisture. House cats require the same nutrient and moisture content as as their mountain lion counterparts. Kidney disease/failure is the #1 killer in domesticated house cats, and is linked to dry diets and fish. Almost all domestic house pets are severely dehydrated (predominantly from dry food/kibble). Additionally, and as much as they love it, fish is not a biologically appropriate protein for cats, causing urinary inflammatory disease, blockages and sometimes death. In other words, Mountain Lions don’t fish!
Pack10’s Feline moist meals called, M.I.C.E.™ (Meat Ingredient Cat Essentials) provide everything cats require nutritionally ( all 11 amino acids, which come from fresh meat) without the need for artificial vitamins or minerals: Our all USDA ingredient M.I.C.E. meals contain Taurine which is found naturally in animal products such as poultry, eggs, dairy and the highest concentrations in meat! We use only the BEST, FRESH, MOIST, Gently Cooked, NOT-processed, USDA certified and organic meat proteins! Vitamin B12 is found naturally in, red meat. Again, we use only the BEST, FRESH, MOIST, Gently cooked, NOT-processed, USDA certified and organic meat proteins! Our feline meals also contain vitamine D3, Vitamin E; Safflower oil & fish oil are all naturally rich in linoleic and linolenic fatty acids, and omega-6 and omega-3 essential fatty acids (vitamin e).
K-9 MEALS FOR DOGS – Nutritionally, dogs require 10 of the 20 available amino acids, that come from fresh meat & organ meat protein in order to ensure healthy physiological function. Pack10 K-9 Meals provide for all 10 of those amino acids in a highly digestible (gently cooked or baked fresh USDA protein – NOT rendered, No “meal” product or byproducts), fresh animal trim (fat – dogs require 20-30% of their diet in fresh fat – fat functions as an energy source/carbohydrate for dogs) combined with a low glycemic load blend of 6 different grains of NON-GMO rice, a fresh, raw, vegetable (or organic vegetable), farm raised organic egg shell calcium, and iodized salt. Again, without the need for artificial vitamins, minerals, preservatives, colorants or flavorings! Please note that due to recent warnings from the FDA regarding cardiomyopathy (CDM), related disease and death in dogs due to legumes and vegetables, we have limited our vegetables to organic carrots, and green beans.
*All Feline & K-9 Meals are prepared, packaged, then frozen to retain freshness.

We’ve been working with dogs, cats and their owners in our community to help improve the nutritional quality of pet food by providing fresh, natural and organic meat and vegetable-based meals. Some of the dogs we serve have overcome obesity, skin and coat problems, stomach problems and dental and bad breath problems. We’ve helped frustrated pet owners with their picky eaters!
At Pack10, we offer foods your pet loves the natural taste of and at the same time offers valuable nutrition (from the ingredients themselves). At Pack10 we want to bring out the “inner wolf” in your canine. Dogs are not that far removed from their ancestral wolves, and in the wild would first consume the best parts (nutrient content) of their prey: lungs, liver, heart, **(all moist) which are very different from the meats that humans prefer.
For Cats, we know that the “inner lion” also craves ungulates (hoved animal meat & internal organs). Cats are obligate carnivores and can only benefit from protein (meat). Everything else just passes though to the litter box, but along the way, puts the liver, kidneys and other major organs to task. At Pack10 , we offer the best option in natural USDA Certified meats for your feline by providing organic, grassfed, hormone-free, antibiotic-free proteins. All of which are preservative-free, additive-free and colorant-free. Cats also require 70% of their diet in moisture. The meals we prepare for both dogs and cats are always moist. In nature neither dogs or cats would eat a dry diet.
The proteins we use in all of our meals at Pack10 are gently but thoroughly cooked. The vegetables we use, however, never are. Our vegetables are fresh and raw when we blend them into our meals so that they retain and offer the highest vitamin, mineral and fiber content for your pet. We offer a variety of both natural and organic choices.
** in nature, like wolves and mountain lions, nutrition for both dogs and cats, would never consist of a dry diet. Dogs & cats require moisture in their diets to maintain healthy levels of hydration.
