HOW TO PREPARE YOUR DOGS MEAL
1. Measure your meal
Use our Feeding Guide to determine how much you need to feed your pet
2. Add Water
Using warm tap water simply measure the appropriate amount of water for your feed and add into your pet bowl
3. Wait 30 Secs & serve
Wait 30 seconds for the food to absorb the water and soften. Check the temperature and serve
Introducing Frontier Pets to your Dog
This is the main query we get. Yes our serving sizes are correct. Remember that you are adding back 75% of the total weight of the product in the form of water. If you were to take all of the water out of a steak, you'd end up with a very small piece of meat. It's exactly the same principle. Please do not overfeed your dog. Stick to the guides. If you are still unsure, contact us, we'll talk you through it.
Yes, you definitely should, but you'll find that, even with the full amount, your dog will lose weight to its optimum. That's because Frontier Pet food is very low in carbohydrates. It's the added carbs (and sugars) in most commercial foods that add weight to your pup. Plus our food is high in protein and the right kind of fats, which are what dogs need to burn for energy.
Yes - it has been designed for all breeds, for all life stages. Puppies need 2.5 times the amount of food that an adult of the same weight eats. This also needs to be broken down to several meals per day, as follows:
0-6 months old. Feed Daily Amount across 4 meals per day.
6-12 months old. Feed Daily Amount across 3 meals per day.
12-18 months old. Feed Daily Amount across 2 meals per day.
From 18 months - feed as per adult amount.
See the Feeding Guide for exact amounts.
That depends on the type of allergy your dog has. If your dog has an allergy, it's likely to be to grains or the environment. If it's environment there's not a lot you can do (except maybe move), but if it's a grain allergy then Frontier Pet food is quite okay for your dog as it is gluten free.
About our Products
It sounds fancy but freeze-drying has actually been around for a while. Think of your two-minute noodles. Both the noodles and the tiny peas and carrots are freeze-dried. Coffee is freeze-dried. Your camping food is freeze-dried and a lot of the food used in the military and by astronauts is the same. Simplified, freeze-drying is a process that removes the water from the food. Given that water is the main ingredient of everything, you end up with a dry product that weights about 4 times less. The good news is that the nutritional value of the food remains intact - as you've simply just removed the water. When you add the water back, you are reconstituting the food back to its original form. That's why your two-minute noodle peas look and taste like peas when you add the water and that's why Frontier Pet food tastes so fabulous to your dog because it's meat and veges! Clever eh?
Freeze-drying removes the water from the raw product. Reconstituting it simply means adding the water back in. It's NOT the same as just adding water to a dry product. If you added water to dry kibble you wouldn't be reconstituting the kibble, you'd just be making slush. Frontier Pet food is brought back to its original form by adding the water. We're just not selling you the water.
Frontier Pet food has a super long shelf life, so many people think it must be full of preservatives. This is not the case. Frontier Pet foods and treats contain no preservatives. They don't need to. The freeze-drying process extracts all of the water from the food, leaving a very low moisture content. Also, the 'water activity' level in the food falls below the level where any micro-organism can live. So it doesn't go 'off'. Once you've added the water back in of course, that changes things. Reconstituted food can be kept in the fridge for 3 days.
Absolutely! Dogs cannot digest complex carbs and that's what you'll find in corn, wheat and other cereal products. Dogs get their energy from proteins and fats - not from wheat. Even if you supplement your dogs diet with food scraps from your table (and we all do...) avoid giving them pasta and rice - it's just not that good for them. Be assured that there's no gluten in our stuff.
