ABOUT LARRY:
Larry is extraordinary!  In a room of barking dogs, you'll find Larry stretched out on is back taking a snooze!  Larry is hilarious!  Some of our employees lovingly call him Stoner.  Larry is the choice when we need to put a new dog at ease, because Larry is a natural at making friends easily with dogs and people alike!  He listens.  He behaves. Barking is not part of his demeanor. Though still a puppy, Larry runs and plays with dogs of all sizes and ages. An active home would be ideal for this family dog.  Larry is a great, great, great dog!
GUARANTEED!


FEED YOUR DOG TO DO MORE THAN SURVIVE. FEED YOUR DOG TO THRIVE!

Feeding a dog the same bag of dog food bag after bag goes against their natural digestive needs. Dogs need and crave variety. Rotate! Rotate bags of dog food. No dog food formula has it all. One formula cannot satisfy a dog's nutritional needs long term.

Below is information for you!



Diet Rotation Helps Lower Risk
Diet rotation is a safer way to feed your dog.

That’s because…

Any dog food can contain hidden flaws and defects.

Too much of one nutrient…

Too little of another.

Or the food may contain hidden toxins or industrial contaminants.

Imperfections not yet discovered by the manufacturer.

Or the FDA.

And you’d never even know it.

What’s worse…

The effect of consuming any defective food tends to be magnified… whenever you feed the same food… continuously

*******************************************************


When pet owners rotate different proteins, carbs and fats in and out of their dog’s bowl, their dog benefits by consuming and absorbing needed nutrients from a variety of dog food ingredients since each ingredient offers a different nutritional profile. Chicken contains higher levels of tryptophan than fish while organ meat has higher amounts of vitamins than flesh. By rotating your dog’s diet, you’re ensuring your dog adsorbs different nutrients, which keeps food allergies at bay.

*********************************************
Increases the Variety of Nutrients in Your Pet's Diet
Rotational feeding means your dog or cat will have the opportunity to take in a much wider variety of nutrients including amino acids, EFAs, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

While a high-quality adult pet food should have the right mix of ingredients to meet your pet's nutritional needs, it’s believed that eating the same foods every day for years on end can potentially increase the risk that your pet becomes intolerant to the foods they eat. When you vary up your dog’s diet by adding new dog food to the rotation, you increase the range of nutrients, and in return, you could possibly reduce the risk of developing food sensitivities later in life.

Also, a varied diet more closely mimics the way dogs and cats’ wild counterparts eat. In nature, dogs, cats and other predators consume different meats throughout the week. Perhaps it’s rabbit for one meal and bird or squirrel the next, interspersed with grasses, berries, and other foodstuffs based on season and availability.

Adds Diversity to Your Pet's Gut Bacteria
Gut bacteria is a vital part of health that many pet parents aren't aware of. More and more research shows that good digestive health and strong immune systems are more likely if dogs have a “happy,” diverse gut microbiome.

When you change up your pet's diet — with plenty of foods that contain fiber, probiotics, and prebiotics — you can potentially add more helpful bacteria to their body.

Food allergies and intolerance are alarmingly common in dogs, and eating one protein or one food day in and day out could be a contributing factor. By switching protein sources and formulas, it reduces the chance of allergy development, ensures that they're receiving a wide array of essential nutrients and increases their tolerance to dietary changes.

All about rotational feeding for dogs
https://animalwellnessmagazine.com/rotational-feeding-dogs/


“By changing up the different types of protein in your pet’s diet, you can help improve his overall health,” says veterinarian Dr. Bradley Quest.



One of the benefits of rotational feeding is that it can help dogs who have food sensitivities and intolerances. “Many food allergies and intolerances can be attributed to repeated and continued exposure to a certain protein source,” says Dr. Quest. “Over time, the pet’s body can have a negative immune reaction to a single protein. By rotating protein sources, we may reduce the frequency of food allergies and intolerances in our pets.”
