More Product Information
We have to main food products: Pre-formulated and Custom. The pre-formulated, Just Cat and Only Dog, are for people who want to feed raw but don’t have the time, skill, or desire to make the food themselves. They also want to have more of a hand in directly managing their pet’s diet, the quantity fed, and have a standard formula they can count on. We make Just Cat and Only Dog products by hand and with the same high-end human-grade ingredients used in our custom meals.
Our custom meals are made specifically for your pet’s individual needs. Yes, they’re customized to you and your pet. Based on your pet’s weight, age, size, activity level, and other factors, we customize the meal including container size. Some pets have taste preferences or food allergies/sensitivities, and others have special needs like kidney disease, cancer, hyperthyroidism, arthritis, IBS/IBD, pancreatitis, weight control, etc., requiring a specific formulation. Our highly customized food is uniquely designed for your pet and is part of our regular service. It’s why you’ll never find Fetching Foods custom meals in a store, because one size can’t fit all.
Unless requested we don’t add supplements to the custom meals. Our meals provide full nutrition through our carefully designed spectrum of ingredients. When you cook ingredients like meat and plants, nutrients can be damaged, like:
- Water-soluble vitamins: Vitamin C and the B vitamins — thiamin (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pantothenic acid (B5), pyridoxine (B6), folic acid (B7) and cobalamin (B8).
- Fat-soluble vitamins: Vitamins A, D, E and K.
- Minerals: Primarily potassium, magnesium, and calcium.
Feeding raw keeps these and many other nutrients intact. This is why supplementation is not required in our raw or gently cooked products (because we’re able to use a low temperature). When canned food, or dry food (kibble) is processed for manufacturing, very high temperatures are used, requiring a wide-range of nutritional supplements.
