ANSWERS CELEBRATES: CHRISTMAS DOGS EVERYWHERE

MEET OUR ADOPTED ANSWERS HOLIDAY DOG

Our Answers family absolutely loves our dogs and cats. (You may have guessed that!) We’re always happy to take in a furry new family member and often find our lives profoundly changed by each new addition, and our love for each unique personality.

So, this holiday season, we’d thought it would be fun to share the story of one adorable and lucky dog adopted this year by an Answers family member and the head of the Answers HR department.

The Story of Judah

Meet Judah. Here’s what we know about him. He was found over the summer along the Texas/Mexico border. His tail had been cut (possible home cropping gone wrong) and he was chained to a fence and left to starve.

 His “owners” moved and took their other two dogs, but left Judah for dead. Amazingly, he fought infection and wounds, and his tragedy turned him into a gentle giant who just wants to be loved.

Judah_Rescue_1024We believe he is about a year and a half old and predominately American Staffordshire Terrier. He is a big boy, most recently weighing in just over 75 lbs., and is expected to pack on some more weight.

Since adopting him from the rescue, we have fully transitioned him to @answerspetfood raw diet with an introduction to our fermented cow milk kefir and raw cow cheese bites to his pre-existing diet. Shortly after, he took to our raw diet seamlessly. His favorite foods thus far are Beef Detailed Formula, our kefir and raw cheese bites. Within a few days, we noticed Judah had more energy, required less water, and his bowel movements were less frequent and smaller. His coat is becoming soft and wounds are on the mend. He is thriving.

Avoiding any unnecessary stress, we’ve also given him Turkey Stock with Fermented Beet Juice because it’s high in Glycine. Glycine produces a calming effect and aids in sleep.

The kids have already established a few cute nicknames for him like “Judy with the booty” and “Jude the Dude”, they also think his “hot dog tail” is quite comical.

He has no idea the glamorous life he’s about to live and we are so blessed to have him. Welcome to the family big guy!

We wish a wonderful holiday season to all Answers pets and all the “new adoptions” that 2019 brought to our homes as fuzzy gifts of love we’ll cherish for years to come.

How fermentation makes our raw pet foods safe & nutritionally dense

Answers Pet Food™ enhances the nutritional value of raw food through the process of fermentation. We use a special process of fermentation to safely enhance organic raw whole foods.

Why fermentation?

Fermentation makes our raw pet foods safe, and nutritionally dense.

Here’s how. Fermentation produces a natural medicine known as bacteriocins, which destroy unwanted bacteria. By utilizing raw cultured whey, cultured raw goat milk, and kefir, we created our own category in the world of pet food.

We’ve become the first and only fermented raw pet food diet in the industry.

Fermentation is a safe, healthier option to standardized High Pressure Processing (HPP) or the use of bacteriophage. Fermentation is inoculated with billions of lactic acid bacteria, or good bacteria, that when faced with a compromised environment, is able to prohibit any pathogen from growing and becoming a concern.

Because our nutritional vision is to provide the safest, highest-quality, most nutrient-dense, microbially responsible raw food product on the market, our scientists found that the best way to accomplish this was by using fermented raw foods.

It is a nutritionally rich option for dogs and cats.

 

Fermentation’s gut health benefits

Good bacteria is needed to create a thriving gut, and yet we believe that bacteria is the number one missing ingredient in pet food.

We inoculate every one of our foods with this beneficial bacteria and allow the organisms to thrive. These bacteria go to work pre-digesting the food, making it easier for pets to assimilate nutrients.

 

Helps support immune function

Fermentation increases B-vitamins, digestive enzymes, antioxidants, and lactic acid that fight off harmful bacteria. Good bacteria fill up the food and also inhibit the growth of bad bacteria.

We call it “safety through inhibition” and it is the most natural and effective way for us to make our products as safe and as healthy as possible.

Just as nature has done it from the very beginning.


Our unique process sets us apart in the pet food industry

We use fermentation to safely enhance organic wholefoods.

Our nutritional vision is to make the best pet food available. We found that the best way to accomplish this was by using fermented raw foods. Since the birth of our company in 2009, we have enjoyed organic growth all over the country thanks to the fantastic results of pets switching from processed, raw or so-called raw foods to our fermented diet.

Why fermentation?

Unlike any other raw diet, Answers Pet FoodTM enhances the nutritional value of raw food through the process of fermentation. It’s a safe, healthier option to standardized HPP. Fermentation produces a natural medicine known as bacteriocins, which destroy unwanted bacteria. By utilizing kombucha (fermented organic decaffeinated green tea), raw cultured whey, cultured raw goat’s milk, and kefir, we created our own category by becoming the first and only fermented raw pet food diet in the industry.

A fermentation benefit: good bacteria.
