CHICKEN MEAL - The chicken we use is strictly human quality chicken flesh and edible skin, the same as you would serve your family. Our Chicken Meal and other meat sources do not contain poultry by-products or other by- products like chicken feet, chicken heads, duck heads, beaks, feathers, fish heads, hides, hoofs and intestines as are commonly found in many so-called "quality" pet foods.. There is no corn, cottonseed, corn cobs, citrus pulp, breakfast food by- products, soy beans, fillers, and no screening or other foreign materials such as noxious weeds, straw, hulls or chaff in our product.
WHEAT BASE - Wheat is far easier to digest than corn or soybean. Utilizing a combination of various grains, such as ground wheat, wheat flour, wheat germ meal and ground rice, is much healthier than simply a single type of grain.
PRESERVATIVES - Food spoils without some form of temperature control or the use of preservatives. Chemical preservatives are NOT acceptable at Flint River Ranch. We use, instead, only natural Vitamin E in a fat-soluble compound known as Tocopherol, which works just fine as a preservative for up to twelve months ("peak" preservation for up to six months). Vitamin E is also an anti-oxidant that retards the oxidation of other vitamins in our food. If necessary, our food may be frozen to preserve freshness
Most brands of dog food include some by-products and chemical preservatives. The use of low quality products and chemical preservatives may be associated with dry skin, allergic reactions, dental disease, poor health and degenerative organ dysfunction. The average dog (44 lbs) can consume 26 lbs of preservatives each year.
The Chicken Meal and Rice formula is oven-baked under carefully controlled conditions and temperatures - resulting in better nutrition, palatability and digestibility for your pet. The ultimate in premium nutrition and gourmet dining!
Oven-baking changes hard to digest starches into easy to digest dextrins, which are readily absorbed into your dog's system. The secret to good nutrition is not how many nutrients are present in a dog's food, but rather, how available they are and how efficiently they can be utilized when digested. The good value is baked-in, not sprayed on.
Because the Kibble is high density, you feed 20%-25% less than other foods. Each serving delivers maximum nutrition without Fillers so you'll also notice a lower stool volume and less clean-up.
The Chicken Meal and Rice formula is made with rice and wheat. Ordinary dog foods are made with corn. Rice and wheat are easier to digest than corn; therefore easier on your dog's system. Various selected parts of the wheat berry are used along with whole wheat flour as it is one of the most nutritionally balanced grains. A combination of grains provides better nutrition than one grain.
There's no sprayed-on additive or greasy coating to make the taste acceptable. Ordinary dog foods are extruded under high pressure and extreme temperatures and then sprayed with fat and other products in order to encourage dogs to eat.
When you buy dog food, you're looking for nutrition. Studies have shown that dogs were required to eat 3 to 4 times as much of an economy brand than a premium food to provide proper nutrition. Flint River Ranch dog food is cheaper to feed than other food costing less. There are 80 cups in a 20 lb. bag at a cost of 25 cents per cup. Daily feeding of 2 to 2.5 cups is 50 to 63 cents. Compare to a daily cost of 70 to 90 cents in feeding 3.5 to 5 cups of a food costing 18 to 20 cents per cup. So, while initial outlay may appear more costly, the reverse in obviously true within a few weeks!
You will be able to see the difference in your dog's healthy skin, coat, and energy level. Healthy nutrition can also mean less medical bills. Flint River believes your dog deserves the best possible food!
