FOODS FOR PUPPIES
GENTLY-BAKED IN THE USA
COAST+RANGE: Since 2017, our veterinarian-formulated foods have been gently-baked in small batches in the USA. Our low-temperature baking process ensures that our foods are safe (we bake above 180 degrees to remove any unwanted food pathogens) while maintaining maximum nutrient retention (unlike the high-temperature extruded pet food process which destroys many nutrients). Baking - and the use of higher quality ingredients - allows us to provide your dog with exceptional nutrition from nature without the need for any synthetic nutrients made in a lab.
THE COMPETITION: The big pet food companies employ a high-temperature process known as extrusion which destroys the nutrition in pet food. That - and the use of low quality ingredients - requires them to use synthetic nutrients made in a lab to provide adequate nutrition for your dog.
HIGH IN ANIMAL PROTEIN + TAURINE
COAST+RANGE: Dogs are carnivorous animals, so our gently baked foods are high (35% or more) in QUALITY animal protein like beef, duck, beef heart, chicken liver, and the yolks of humanely-raised eggs. These quality protein sources NATURALLY deliver the vitamins, minerals, and essential amino acids your dog needs to thrive.
THE COMPETITION: Uses low levels of QUALITY animal protein and synthetic amino acids made in a lab like Taurine, L-Lysine, and Methionine to nourish your pet (not natural ingredients like COAST+RANGE).
MADE FROM SIMPLE INGREDIENTS
COAST+RANGE: We use simple ingredients from nature in our foods. Ingredients you will recognize, and instantly know are good for your dog (because they are things YOU eat too) like duck, the yolks from humanely raised eggs, organic sweet potato, organic brown rice, whole blueberries, broccoli, spinach, apple and carrot. So your dog gets their nutrition from natural, whole food ingredients, not synthetic vitamins and minerals made in a lab.
THE COMPETITION: Uses synthetic vitamins and minerals made in a lab and cheap fillers like: tapioca starch, alfalfa nutrient concentrate, pea starch, tomato pomace, dried egg product, lentil fiber, choline chloride, tomato pomace, and beet pulp. Ingredients you would NEVER eat yourself - so why should your DOG?
NO SYNTHETIC NUTRIENTS
COAST+RANGE: We use better ingredients and gently bake our foods so we don't have to use synthetic vitamins. minerals or amino acids in our foods - so your dog gets their nutrition from nature, not something made in a lab.
THE COMPETITION: Uses lower quality ingredients and a high heat process known as extrusion that destroys the nutrition in the food. As a result pet food companies use what is know as a "pre-mix" of synthetic vitamins, minerals and amino acids made in a lab (many in China). So you pay for fancy ingredients and your dog actually gets their nutrition from cheap lab-made nutrients.
KEY PUPPY NUTRITIONAL REQUIREMENTS
Puppy food should contain protein levels between 30-35% to help develop strong muscles. Calcium should be no less than 1.2% and, ideally, between 1.5% and 1.8%. Calcium helps develop the puppy's skeletal system and should not exceed 1.8% for dogs that will be 70lbs as adults, or greater than 2.4% for all other dogs, as that could result in developmental problems later in life. Phosphorus helps with nutrient absorption and should be no less than 1%. DHA/EPA help with the cognitive development of the puppy and should be between 0.35% and 0.5% of the puppy's food.
COAST+RANGE formulas for Puppies are specifically designed with the proper balance of protein, calcium, and phosphorus to help ensure proper growth of your puppy. Unlike other pet food companies that use less rigorous feeding trials, we test every batch of our gently-baked foods to ensure we meet these important requirements.
