5Basic Feeding Guide
for Dogs

How do I properly feed my dog?

Your dog's nutritional requirements will vary according to age, breed, climate, stress and activity levels. When switching to Timberwolf pet foods, gradually increase the amount fed while decreasing the previous food over a 5 - 14 day period. It is prudent to switch any new food gradually, but because Timberwolf pet foods are unique, your pet may need more time to increase the bacteria necessary to completely digest some of the ingredients. We have included direct-fed microbial or "probiotics" to assist in the development of beneficial colonies.

Overfeeding can also cause digestive upset and should be adjusted accordingly. You will find that you will feed as little as half of what you were previously feeding. Please do not overfeed. After an initial adjustment period, your dog should have small, well-formed, well-digested stools with no odor. In fact, one of the most frequently heard compliments we receive is how small the stools are and how little odor there is. We do not use any artificial stool hardeners, however, so it’s possible that stress, upset stomach due to eating from the garbage or yard, bacterial or viral infection, an insufficient adjustment period, or overfeeding can cause a stool that’s not very well digested. We feel it’s better to not use stool hardeners so that one may observe if there are any problems.

Timberwolf pet foods are formulated to meet AAFCO nutrient profiles for all life stages. They have met animal feeding tests using AAFCO procedures to substantiate that they provide complete and balanced nutrition for all life stages. Dogs that are stressed, working, lactating, or whelping should be fed near the high end of the above range. Please adjust accordingly. Puppies eat much more per body weight than adults. Some breeders recommend letting the puppy eat as much as it wants.

Timberwolf Wild and Natural is the perfect food for young puppies as the kibble is smaller than other diets. As the mother begins to wean her puppies, slowly introduce Timberwolf Wild and Natural into their diet by soaking the food in warm water to soften.

Supplementing a dry food with fresh meat, organs, sweetbreads and tripe up to 25% of diet by weight would be consistent with good feeding practices. We do not recommend the feeding of chicken or turkey necks or backs unless possibly if included in the proper ratio as a part of the "whole animal" (Momma Wolf says to Baby Wolf, "Remember what I told you, Junior! Leave all of the nutritious organs and flesh, and eat only the backs and necks!").

Timberwolf formulas contain all the nutrients required to reflect a natural rearing diet however dogs, like people, love and thrive on nutritional variety. The occasional use of wholesome extras should not exceed 10 – 20 per cent of the total volume of food fed. This can maximize economy and food recycling. Feeding extras encourage a robust digestive system from an early age, ensuring optimum nutrition and preventing the dog from becoming a ‘fussy eater’. Extras should be fed reservedly.

Lightly steamed green vegetables with cooked meats are the best source of extras. When preparing your own family meal try freezing extras and store in small food grade bags or containers that can be thawed out the day before use.

Ground, whole raw chicken wings and chicken backs make an inexpensive wholesome, healthy option that supplies both meat and calcium in an ideal way. Introduce your dog just very small amounts to start with if they are not used to eating raw. When a puppy’s teeth have become strong enough to crunch the bones, he can be given whole raw chicken wings and other raw meaty bones.

Avoid all processed food. NEVER give cooked bones of any description.

Just as puppies need a higher input of energy as they grow, senior dogs need less as they begin to slow down, the quality of the food becomes even more important as major organs gradually begin to lose their vitality as part of the body’s natural aging process. Reduction of energy, whilst maintaining the quality can be achieved without hunger pangs by reducing the amount of food and adding low energy treats such as cooked green vegetables. The amounts fed should be adjusted according to the individual aging dog and evaluated according to the dogs overall weight and condition. Over-feeding should be avoided as it is one of the greatest causes of early demise.

Please provide plenty of fresh, clean water for your pet at all times. For optimum health, in addition to proper diet and fresh water, your pet needs regular exercise, fresh air, lots of love and attention, and regular veterinary care. Try to schedule a veterinary checkup at least once a year.

Preservatives

Just as humans dislike the taste of stale food, so do many animals. Stale food can dampen your pet's appetite and lead to a refusal to eat. Food that is exposed to air for prolonged periods may spoil and can sicken your pet. Stale food can also be expensive for consumers, who have to replace the uneaten kibble. To prevent spoilage and provide a better consumer value, it is necessary for manufacturers to add preservatives to pet foods. But just what are these preservatives, and are they safe for pets?

Artificial preservatives give processed foods a longer shelf life, but they represent potential health risks for your pet. Many commercial pet foods are preserved with BHA and BHT, chemical additives that have been associated with cancer in both humans and animals. BHT has been banned for human use in countries such as Japan, Australia and Sweden. Another common preservative, ethoxyquin, is a pesticide that is considered hazardous under the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard. Ethoxyquin is believed to cause infertility, birth defects and various cancers in animals.

We do not use artificial preservatives in any of our diets. All Timberwolf diets are naturally preserved with rosemary and/or mixed tocopherols (a natural source of Vitamin E). Natural preservatives have a much shorter shelf life than their synthetic counterparts, but they are free of the health hazards associated with chemical additives.

Because we choose safety over shelf life, we have put additional measures in place to extend the stability and longevity of our Timberwolf diets. We produce our food in small, frequently created batches to ensure maximum freshness. We offer the highest grade of oxygen barrier packaging to protect against oxidation, rancidity, and outside contaminants. Our bags feature a one-way degassing valve to maintain freshness and protect your pet's food from environmental elements.

You can also do your part to keep your pet's food fresh. An unopened bag of Timberwolf is good for one year past its manufacturing date. Once opened, the food should be consumed as soon as possible. Timberwolf diets should be stored in their original packaging. After closing the bag, store it in a larger food-grade container with a tightly sealed lid to lock out air and contaminants. The food should be stored in a cool, climate-controlled environment, away from heat and insects.

Timberwolf is dedicated to providing a safe, natural product at a superior value. Our diets and supplements are free of artificial preservatives and flavors. With Timberwolf, you know your pet is eating food, not chemicals.
