Why does Doc's Choice use chicken as the main protein source?
Dogs are carnivores and need meat protein. Chicken is our important source of easily digestible meat protein. Dogs love it, and it provides a high quality protein important to their health.
Why is the temperature Doc's Choice is produced at important?
All pet foods contain grains, and thus, the grains must be cooked at very high temperatures to cook the starches away so your pet does not develop loose stools and other problems.
Doc's Choice uses a special process. Our grains are first oven roasted to cook the starches and then combined with all other ingredients and pelletized at a very low temperature.
Most other dog food is kibbled using an extruder, and the grains are mixed with the other ingredients and then heated to very high temperatures - 500 degrees and higher. At these temperatures, you damage some of the important vitamins and amino acids which are important for your pet. With Doc's Choice, our process methodology protects these vital nutrients.
What is the best way to switch my dog over to Doc's Choice from another dog food?
There are different ways to convert your dog over to Doc's Choice, but the one we recommend is to begin by mixing Doc's Choice with your other dog food at a 50% rate for the first couple of days and then up to 75% after that. On day four or five you can switch your pet entirely to Doc's Choice.
