FOODS FOR TOY + SMALL BREEDS
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.
LOWER IN STARCHY CARBS + SUGAR
COAST+RANGE: Dogs are carnivores that have evolved to eat diets including carbohydrates. But their digestive systems are not designed to process the high levels of carbohydrates found in premium dog food. At COAST+RANGE, we make foods that are lower in carbohydrates ( 40% or less) and even lower in starchy carbs and sugar (15% or less).
THE COMPETITION: Most premium dog food is made up of more than 40% carbohydrates. Do you know the brands that spend millions advertising "meat as the #1 ingredient"? Most of their foods are actually over 50% carbohydrate (so much for meat).
CURIOUS about the level of carbs in YOUR dog's food? Use our carbohydrate calculator find the levels in your dog's food.
COAST+RANGE: We provide our customers with total ingredient transparency. Where the ingredients come from and why they are in the food. We also guarantee that we never use ANY ingredients from China.
THE COMPETITION: Our competition will tell you the origin of SOME of their ingredients when it looks good for marketing purposes. But ask them the origin of ALL of their ingredients (especially their synthetic vitamins and minerals) and suddenly they are not so interested in sharing. The truth is many of their ingredients (like their preservatives/mixed tocopherols and Vitamin D) are actually from China.
