The Skinny on FAT for Dogs (their energy source)

A HUGE amount of healthy, fresh fat is required as part of the nutritional requirement for dogs.   25-30% of a dog’s calorie intake should be from fresh trim.  Dogs LOVE fresh trim.  It’s highly palatable to them.  You won’t find this in dry kibble, no matter how much top dry brand costs.  Trim fat has a very short shelf life and is difficult to preserve without adding tons of chemicals.  Fresh trim helps keep your dog lean – Here’s why:

Unlike humans, dogs use fresh healthy fat as their energy source.  Healthy fats are essential for every aspect of your animal’s health.  @ Pack10 we use mostly fresh trim fat (animal – from local organic farms in Colorado), as well as Non-GMO olive and safflower oils that are nutrient rich in omegas..  It is the high-sugar carbohydrate component in foods, not the fat content, that causes obesity in pets, and is the leading cause of diabetes, & dental decay/bad breath in dogs & cats.

Pack10’s Commitment to sustainability – Packaging!

By the year 2020 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish :-(.  This fact makes us incredibly sad!

Every aspect of our cat food packaging is compostable.. .all the way down to the 2oz containers, which are made from corn.

In 2017 we switched our K-9 Meals from vac-seal (non-biodegradable, non-recyclable) bags to compostable tubs with recyclable lids.
