About The Manufacturer
Here at JustFoodForDogs we have a single objective: To increase the quality and length of life for as many dogs as possible through a balanced, whole food diet. It all started when founder Shawn Buckley became curious about what was in the commercial dog food he was feeding his dogs Simon and Nala. For 3 years, Shawn focused his professional efforts exclusively on learning as much as possible about the commercial dog food and the dog food industry. He also studied dog nutrition and provided home cooked meals for Simon, Nala and a number of his friend's dogs. He concluded that he would create a business that produces healthy, whole food for dogs.
And he would make truth, honesty, reason and fact the pillars upon which JustFoodForDogs would grow and flourish.
USDA Certified Ground Beef
We only use the finest USDA inspected and approved ground beef from Kansas in this healthy dog recipe. Beef is considered a prime source of high-quality, complete protein and is also rich in iron and zinc, as well as vitamins B12 and B6.

Our USDA inspected and approved New Zealand beef heart is a nutrient dense food. Ounce for ounce, it contains the most concentrated amounts of protein and a natural source of active vitamin A. It’s a rich source of heme-iron, the most absorbable form of iron. Beef heart is also high in B-vitamins such as cobalamin, pantothenic acid, riboflavin, niacin, phosphorous and zinc.

Safflower oil contains essential omega-6 fatty acids which, via prostaglandins, strengthen cell membranes and regulate every function in the body at the molecular level. Canola oil for dogs is both more common as well as more affordable than safflower oil but given the controversy surrounding canola oil and the superiority of safflower oil for dogs we believe the expense is justified.
Egg whites are considered nature's perfect protein, and contain all essential amino acids in a highly bioavailable form. In addition, egg whites are a great source of selenium, choline, potassium, and contain some calcium.

It takes time to transition your pet to a new food without having digestive upset. Over the course of one to two weeks, you should gradually switch from the old food to the new. Start with a 75% old to 25% new mix, then 50:50, and finally 25:75, until you have switched to JustFoodForDogs entirely.
