Our Healthy Dog Meals
All our meals are hand-made. That means no large production facility with machine operators. Our healthy meals are cooked (not raw) fresh each week from scratch. That means no stored food frozen weeks in advance.
Once meals are prepared and cooked, they are immediately cooled and vacuum packed using our commercial sealers. This allows for the meals to be stored refrigerated (for up to 7 days) and frozen (upwards of 3 months) - with absolutely ZERO additives or preservatives.
All natural, all the time!
We use a fantastic selection of meat cuts from our local butchers. We do not settle for left-over cuts of meat. We make sure to use ethically sourced and in most cases better than what we can get at our local supermarkets for human consumption.
Our vegies are bought fresh from local fresh food market suppliers.
And we add a little supplementation of bone meal powder for calcium and a mix of vitamins and nutrients (HHD Vita-mix) which balances each meal.
Some of our meals are a modified version of recipes found in the fantastic book - "The Healthy Dog Cookbook" by Jonna Anne, published by Ivy Press. Happy Healthy Dog has put in a considerable effort to make sure that ingredient quantities have been modified to suit your dog specifically and additional nutrients added to meet the nutrient profile of your dog.
As with most things, there is always a fair debate to all sides of the story. We are not biased one way or the other when it comes to 'dog food' - we simply want the best for your furry companion. Home-cooked meals can be great for dogs, but often when not cooked correctly, they lack important vitamins and minerals, causing deficiencies over time. We make sure that each of our meals meet the exact amount of daily required Vitamins and Minerals for your dog. Our meals are almost perfect by themselves, but we make sure to add special Multivitamins, Calcium, Omega 3 oils to fill in the gaps.
The main factors that determine the size and calories per meal of your dog is the weight and age. The other things we take into consideration is your dog's activity levels too! There is a universal algorithm (equation) that helps calculate the healthy amount of calories per meal based on these variables. In consultation with Vets and Canine experts, we use this widely accepted concept for sizing our meals.When you checkout, we ask for these inputs.
Happy Healthy Dog has been serving up delicious and healthy meals for over 2 years! We have customers who have been on our diet from day 1 and are still happy and healthy today.
We love dogs, and we are committed to providing a happy healthy lifestyle for them. We do not view dogs as just pets. We view them as family members, and we want the best for them. Check out some of the other reasons why you should choose us here
At Happy Healthy Dog we have made a lot of effort to ensure that our meals meat the right dietary and nutritional requirements to maintain great health in all dogs. We have followed a number of nutritional advice including:
• - Meeting the recommendations made by the National Research Council (NRC) whom published the 'Nutrient Requirements of Dogs and Cats' publication - widely used by Canine experts around the world
• - The Nutrient Profiles for Adult Maintenance stated by AAFCO (Authorisation of American Feed Control Officials). These outline min. and in some cases max. amounts of Crude Protein, Fat, various Minerals and Vitamins a dogs diet should include. We have sent all our meals for lab testing to prove that our meals meet these standards
• - We have conducted actual lab tests and dog food trials
