I'm so excited to feed Love Your Pet. Tell me more.

We were inspired by a very sick Golden Retriever who had been accidentally poisoned and nearly died.   We knew that we could nourish him back to health with clean, real foods.  We began making raw food when nobody else was (34 years ago) in Park City, Utah. All our foods use the highest quality, pristine ingredients.

Our mission is to help pets thrive, by incorporating pure, vibrant foods in their diets that are specifically formulated for their individual needs based on age, breed, activity level, and any presence of disease.  We offer unparalleled nutrition and knowledge to pets and their people.

Can I feed a Canine Formula to felines or a Feline Formula to canines?

We recommend our vegetable entree for dogs and our plain meats for cats.  However, if you wish to try an elimination diet for your pet plain meats are an excellent way to determine whether your pet has an allergy to a particular protein.

What differentiates Love Your Pet from other raw foods?
  • Made in the USA
  • All ingredients are sourced in the USA
  • Wild and Novel Protein Sources
  • Free of steroids, antibiotics, hormones, injections, or colorings
  • No synthetics supplements or vitamins
  • No recalls in 34 years
  • Pets LOVE, Love Your Pet
Can I warm my pet's food in the microwave?

Please don’t. Vital nutrients will be lost and there is bone in our product

Can I feed both raw and processed foods?

Yes, some raw is better than no raw. We recommend that you feed kibble away from raw. As the body works harder to digest processed food (kibble) versus unprocessed food (raw).

My pet appears to be hungry. Should I feed more?

Your Pet loves our food and wants more!  Our feeding calculator is accurate based on weight.  That being said it’s a guideline and there are factors that play a role in determining how much your pet needs to eat;  such as age, activity level, metabolism, breed, and overall health.  Adjust accordingly or consult your veterinarian.

How long does it take to thaw your frozen products?

Standard thaw times for each of our raw frozen products:

1 pound pack of meat in the refrigerator-1 day

1 15-ounce tub of bone broth-12 hours

How long will Love Your Pet frozen products remain fresh at room temperature?

About 2 hours, if your pet can wait that long!

How long will Love Your Pet remain fresh under refrigeration?

Thawed raw food will remain fresh in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

How much should I feed my pet?

How do I prepare and serve your foods to my pet?

Defrost in the refrigerator.  Use a box cutter completely around the package and drop it into the bowl.  Put the remainder in another glass bowl and store it for the next meal.  Simple!

For Bones

 Since bones are messy, we recommend serving them outside or in a crate and with supervision.  Do not leave your pet unattended.

Should I rotate proteins?

Yes, variety is a good thing.

Where can I find nutritional information for your products?

On our website as well as the label.

Do your canine formulas contain taurine?

Our Elk and Venison products have a naturally occurring taurine. Canines are able to synthesize Taurine from amino acids which are abundant in all Love Your Pet Elk and Venison formulas.

What are the benefits from Love Your Pet Raw Foods?
  • 100% digestability
  • Increased energy, vitality, and health
  • Gorgeous skin and coat
  • Less itching and scratching
  • Shiny, white teeth (bones are Nature’s toothbrushes)

What breed are your dogs?

They are Newfoundlands (Pronounced Noo-fund-LAND). Can you guess which country they hail from?

How much do Newfoundlands typically weigh?

We’ve had the pleasure of having eight of these incredible animals as family members over the years. Their respective weights have been:  Ajax (160), Argos, (165), Kodiak (145), Oliver (110), Ferguson (175) Atlas (209), Apollo (180) and Dreamer (150). As you can see, there’s a wide range, but a rough average is about 165. 

Do you need a big house for your dogs?

It doesn’t matter what size your home is because Newfoundlands only utilize the six square feet directly on top of or adjacent to you. 

Do they drool?

Only a lot.  We’re working on a method of turning drool into electricity. If we can figure it out, we can light up Las Vegas every night.

Is it a bear?

No, but they do resemble the color variations of bears with brown, black, black and white (known as a Landseer), and, once in a blue moon, a grey Newfoundland pops up. 

Can I take a picture with your dogs?

Absolutely!  Newfoundlands completely lack the “hurry up” instinct, so unless I’m on fire, I’m not going anywhere fast.

"We should put a saddle on that thing."

I don’t dignify this statement with a response.

What do they like to do?

Their favorite activity is swimming. Newfoundlands were originally bred as water rescue dogs. Employing a modified “breast stroke,” they are very efficient long-distance swimmers. There are hundreds of water rescue stories involving them.

Do they shed?

Ours don’t shed much due to their diet, but they do require daily brushing. Grooming is one of the needed expenses you must consider if you want to have one in your family. 

Do they like the snow?

They love the snow almost as much as the water. Even as old dogs, they will spend hours tearing up, down, and through the drifts.
