Here at Hale’s Australian Labradoodles, we know the importance of rotating not only Dog Food proteins but also brands. Some of the proteins in the current brand Earthborn Unfriended we are feeding have been recalled. Please check the recall list here. https://www.dogfoodadvisor.com/dog-food-recall/midwestern-pet-foods-dog-cat-food/?fbclid=IwAR3YzHbm7BuYpoM66Tvepa3IIfW5J3GzG2hmqx1eLLWvs-zlQuLaLzDWAzE
Please check your food NOW and change if you are feeding anything that is on the recall list. Nutrition is important to every dog’s life, so we have made the immediate change back to BIXBI and feed their RAWBBLE and LIBERTY lines of fresh meat dog food. After researching the products and talking with the BIXBI team, we want to recommend their foods to our community of puppy families as well.
BIXBI is a U.S., family-owned company that makes an assortment of healthy foods, treats, and supplements for dogs. BIXBI has been in business for over a decade and has built its business on a commitment to dogs’ health and wellbeing which is something we can definitely get behind. We have learned that every product BIXBI produces is thoughtfully sourced, made with minimal processing, and is rigorously tested for safety and quality.
Here is what we have learned about BIXBI’s diets:
The overall premise is that fresh meat mixed with whole food ingredients provides much better nutrition than overly processed commercial dog foods. BIXBI’s food comes in three styles that are all complete and balanced for puppies as well as adults:
Dry – This is the most economical choice and is quite different from normal dry food. RAWBBLE and LIBERTY kibble only use fresh meat and never use meat meal powders like chicken meal or fish meal. The result is an average protein digestibility that is industry-leading. At 90% average digestibility, RAWBBLE and LIBERTY Recipes are better than many frozen or freeze-dried raw foods. RAWBBLE Dry Food Recipes come with a delicious Freeze-Dried coating that is perfect for picky eaters. While the LIBERTY line does not have a Freeze-Dried coating, it does offer a different variety of proteins and blends, including two grain-inclusive recipes.
Freeze-Dried – RAWBBLE Freeze-Dried provides one of the best raw food values on the market. It has all the benefits of a raw diet plus the convenience of being shelf-stable. RAWBBLE Freeze-Dried averages 95% protein digestibility across the line, which is amazing. This works great as treats, mixed in with dry food, or as a complete diet.
Wet – Canned food is great as a mix in with dry foods or can be fed as a complete diet. LIBERTY Wet does not include binders like carrageenan that can cause GI distress. It does include a lot of meat that dogs love!
Our dogs here absolutely love their BIXBI food. We feel good about the ingredients and the testing BIXBI does to ensure nutrition and safety. If you would like to learn more, the BIXBI website (www.BIXBIpet.com) has a lot more information.
