Our human edible venison comes from family farms in New-Zealand that adhere to strict animal welfare code. They are free-range, grass fed and never given any hormones, antibiotics, or GMO feed. Venison is high in protein and iron but yet low in fat. It is rich in many nutrients like vitamins B12, B6, riboflavin and niacin. We purchase all of our Venison from Broadleaf, a USDA registered facility that specializes in human edible, top quality game meats.

Cranberries are considered to be one of the world’s most healthy foods. Cranberries for dogs provide an excellent source of vitamin C, a very good source of dietary fiber and a good source of vitamin K. Cranberries promote gastrointestinal health by preventing bacteria from attaching to cells and disrupting bacterial communication. They are also full of antioxidants, flavonoids and polypenols which can protect dogs against heart disease, free-radical damage, artherosclerosis (clogged arteries) and urinary tract infections.
Safflower oil contains essential omega-6 fatty acids which, via prostaglandins, strengthen cell membranes and regulate every function in the body at the molecular level. Canola oil for dogs is both more common as well as more affordable than safflower oil but given the controversy surrounding canola oil and the superiority of safflower oil for dogs we believe the expense is justified.

All of our daily diets for dogs have passed AAFCO protocol feeding trials at Cal Poly Pomona University. In fact, the trials conducted at the university were much more stringent than the AAFCO protocol standards, as the Animal Care and Use Committee (ACUC) of the university found the AAFCO feeding trial to be too rudimentary. The reality is our diets have passed trials that exceed AAFCO standards.
JFFD is the first pet food company ever to conduct humane feeding trials at a major university using faculty and student dogs living hapily in their own homes. Most pet food companies do not run trials at all - and those that do tend to use laboratories that house beagles that live their lives for animal testing. Like everything we do at JFFD - we did it a better way! Learn more about our feeding trials here: A One of A Kind Partnership.
