Spotlight: MAXOTA RAW and URBAN WOLF NY

Maxota_Raw_UrbanWolf_Nyack NY_Raw_Food_Dogs

 

For pet owners in Rockland   County, NY there   is a new specialty pet store in town- Urban Wolf.  What makes this Nyack pet shop stand out from others is their own small batch brand of all natural raw dog food called MAXOTA RAW.

Urban Wolf co-owner Gunner Williams was introduced to the concept of raw by his vet, a raw diet advocate.

“Nutrition is the key to your pet experiencing increased energy, improved skin and coat health, and better smelling breath. This is achievable by transitioning your dog to an all-natural raw food, such as MAXOTA RAW. A dog’s digestive system is built to utilize more nutrients out of a raw natural diet.”

Gunners has a background in preventative & holistic health practices. After seeing the benefits of a raw diet first hand with his own dog, he was motivated to make his own natural, fresh, wholesome dog food.

“At MAXOTA RAW, we produce, package and freeze all our all natural raw pet formulas in small batches and use only the finest, freshest, human-grade USA ingredients available. All our products are grain-free and contain zero additives, preservatives, hormones, steroids, antibiotics or fillers.”

If you are in Rockland County, URBAN WOLF is having its Grand Opening on January 29th, in Nyack, New York. The special event will include educational information about adopting a raw food diet for your pet.

They offer meat strips, meat sticks , meat wraps, biscuit wraps ,Vitahide brand Joint Formula & Heart Formula and their Vegitopia treats, that come in fruit and veggie flavours such as apple, banana , carrot, sweet potato and include Vitamin C , antioxidants, trace nutrients such as potassium

I sampled the Duck Flavoured meat sticks flavoured with sweet potato. My carnivore- potato loving senior pooch enjoyed them. He seemed to find the texture very chewy or he  just flavourful, based on how fast he chomped down on them.  It is a softer chew, and made of duck fillet meat.

Dogswell Happy Hips Treat Review

Thors Review:  Dogswell Happy Hips Biscuits

Dogswell Happy Hips line of dog treats come in a variety of flavors such as Chicken, Beef, Lamb & Rice, Sweet Potatoes and Bacon & White Cheddar which I supplied to my test subject- Thor , a 105 lb Rottweiler with aging hip issues and arthritis onset. The biscuit line touts “Helps Maintain Healthy Hips & Joints with Glucosamine & Chondroitin”.

I try to include healthy natural dog food and treats, in addition to natural supplements, in Thors diet to ease his aches and pains.  These treats were well received.  I like that the biscuits add to his daily Glucosamine & Chondroitin supplement intake  and are made  from all natural ingredients that nutritonally make sense. DOGSWELL® products are made from natural meat and poultry with absolutely no added hormones, processed gluten, and no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives

The only comment I will make on Thors behalf-  “what about a bigger biscuit?” I top off his meals with one-two of these tiny tasty biscuits at each meal time and he like s finding the added treat in his bowl.  For large breeds a larger biscuit version would be a nice option.

Key Ingredients= Chicken – cage-free chickens raised without added growth hormones or  steroids. Bacon– They use real bacon, not synthetic bacon flavor. White Cheddar– Bacon and White Cheddar biscuits contain real white cheddar, not artificial cheese flavoring. Oats – healthy whole grains that supply B-complex vitamins, fiber and complex carbohydrates. Glucosamine & Chondroitin – Natural sources of glucosamine hydrochloride and chondroitin sulfate help maintain joint mobility.
