    Hello, we were in the process of creating a dog food for our local animal rescue. We’ve been working on the formula, but are admittedly not nutritional experts. We wanted to make sure it was safe and healthy before we had it manufactured. Any advice or opinions on the ingredients would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!

    Consult with an animal nutritionist and have your formula tested to see if it meets nutritional guidelines per AAFCO and NRC.
