Essex Cottage Farms Original Health Food Mix


Essex Cottage Farms Original Health Food Mix – Adult Dog

Essex Cottage Farms’ nutrient-rich mixes allow you to choose which meats & veggies to add, while feeding a balanced diet of fresh food. This is very helpful for dogs with allergies or sensitivities* to certain ingredients. You can make each batch with different meats & veggies that are in season, to give your dog variety in their diet… it’s not “natural” for a canine to eat the exact same food every day.

Fast and easy to mix up; you can make a batch fresh daily, weekly or monthly; this food freezes well. There is no need to worry about meticulous measuring or having exotic ingredients on hand; you can buy everything you need to add at the grocery store. YOU get to choose what is best for your individual dog & your budget.

Choose your own method of feeding this food: raw or cooked.

*If your dog suffers from food allergies or sensitivities, please read all ingredients and compare with the ingredients in the Hypoallergenic and Gastro Health Food Mix options.

Made in Canada
