Fresher is Better
Earthblend is made in small batches to ensure controlled consistency and optimum freshness. Each bag of Earthblend is stamped with the date of manufacture and stored in our temperature-controlled storage facility until delivery. This helps ensure outstanding palatability and maximum ingredient potency without the presence of unhealthy chemical preservatives.
Equally important to what goes into your dog’s food is what doesn’t…be sure to read the labels!
Many of the pet foods on the market today are full of unhealthy preservatives and additives. Exposure to pesticides, chemicals, and artificial dyes, is even a bigger risk to your pet small and fragile system than it is to you. It is a common opinion among many veterinarians these days that these toxins are the major cause of the alarming number of cases of early aging and cancer in dogs.
Take a look at the first few ingredients in some national “Premium” brands. How many of them have meat as their first two ingredients? We know you’ll see why Earthblend is well above the competition!
