Nutrition Philosophy

"You are what you eat" - we've all heard that phrase before. But we have the ability to choose our foods, hopefully choosing to eat more of what's good for us than not.

Our pets depend on us to make that choice for them. At Dogma, we believe proper nutrition can have a huge impact on a pet's quality & length of life.

We wouldn't choose to eat foods that cause an allergic reaction in our bodies, but many owners unknowingly are feeding their pets foods that do just that. In many cases, just changing what a dog eats can have the effect of a "miracle cure" from a variety of skin & coat problems & other allergy related symptoms.

In severe cases veterinary advice is always recommended, but for a dog that is experiencing itchy skin, ear problems, runny eyes, dry or oily coat, funky odor, bad breath or "gassiness", feeding a diet that is free of the most common allergy causing ingredients as well as certain chemicals & preservatives can be immensely beneficial.

Veterinary administered shots or medications can sometimes stop or cover up the symptoms but don't cure the underlying problem. By feeding your pet a pure, natural & chemical & preservative free food made with the best top quality real meats including uncommon or alternative protein sources & other proven beneficial ingredients, you are decreasing the chances of allergy related symptoms & increasing the chances of having a pet with a long & healthy life.
