Whitefish

Some researchers believe that high levels of synthetic copper supplements in some pet foods can promote liver disease in dogs, as dogs tend to store excess copper in their liver. Whitefish has innately low levels of copper. It is also a good source of protein and rich essential fatty acids.

Turmeric

Turmeric provides natural immune support.

Cod Liver  Oil

Cod liver oil is a whole-food source of vitamin D and natural alternative to synthetic vitamin D.

Artichoke Leaf Powder

Artichoke is a powerful prebiotic that’s extremely beneficial.

Dandelion Root Powder

Dandelion is a blood purifier and prebiotic.

Basil

Vitamin K plays a key role in blood clotting and basil is an excellent source of natural vitamin K. It is also an antioxidant and contains magnesium.

Licorice Root Powder

It helps protect liver cells and minimize liver damage.

Green Tea

Green tea is a whole food that contains an extremely powerful antioxidant called epigallocatechin-3-gallate, or EGCG. This substance scavenges free radicals and greatly increases the antioxidant load.

Zinc Proteinate

Zinc is a healing mineral. This natural and non-toxic form of bioavailable zinc supports liver normal function.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E supports liver cell membranes.

L-Arginine and L-Carnitine

These vital amino acids assist in maintaining normal liver function.

Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin), Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine), and Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin)

Because B vitamins are excreted in urine this formula contains high levels to replace the vitamin systemically.

Frequently Asked Questions

Dogs should be fed 2-4% of their body weight per day. One Darwin meal patty is equivalent to an 8oz. cup of dry dog food. For weekly and monthly calculation, the following can be used as a guide:

  • A 10Ib dog will eat 2-2 ½Ibs per week or 10Ibs per month
  • A 25Ib dog will eat 8Ibs per week or 32Ibs per month 
  • A 75Ib dog will eat 10-10 ½Ibs per week or 42Ibs per month
  • A 100Ib dog will eat 14Ibs per week or 56Ibs per month

Feeding guidelines may vary based on your dog’s age, size, weight, and activity level. If you are confused about how much to feed your dog, we offer free menu consultation by phone or email. We also recommend monitoring your dog’s weight so you can adjust his diet for weight gain or loss.


For any healthy adult pet, we don't recommend cooking Darwin's meals. It's best to simply thaw and serve. This is all to preserve the nutrients and to ensure the meals remain species-appropriate. 

If your pet is under 4 months of age, or has a compromised immune system, we recommend lightly sautéing over medium to medium-high heat for 8-12 minutes.
