Nutrition's Influence on Dog and Cat's Health
While a raw food-based diet for our domesticated carnivore pets is one approach that has
grown in popularity, some people prefer to feed their dogs and cats a good quality grain-free
kibble or canned food due to their concern about zoonosis infections or diseases that can be
transmitted directly from raw meet to humans.
Dr. Don E. Lundholm, D.V.M. - We are seeing disease conditions in
animals that we did not see years ago. Many of these may be traced to less than optimum nutrition and diet as the source"
"Commercial pet food is anywhere between 45 percent to 65 percent
carbohydrates (grains). Grains are the least expensive part of pet food
and can fill the animal quickly. Dogs and cats are more carnivores than
we humans are, and we are feeding them almost as much grain (or more)
than we humans eat. I feel that this high-carbohydrate commercial pet
food is the worst food we can feed our pet friends. Our pet friends need fresh
meats, not dehydrated meat by-products." Dr. Joe Demers D.V.M
Life's Abundance grain-free dog and cat food made in the USA
has never been recalled. This wholesome Pet Food is formulated by Dr. Jane Bicks, a
highly respected and nationally recognized holistic veterinarian. Dr. Bicks' Life's
Abundance contains only fresh, natural, wholesome ingredients. It is nutrient dense
with vitamins, minerals, fats and fatty acids essential for the optimal health of
your dog and cat. Five sources of high quality protein. Rich in powerful antioxidants
from natural sources. It does NOT contain corn, wheat, dairy, by-products, artificial
colors or flavors found in other leading brands.
When you feed your cat
or dog a Premium Health Food, you’re providing the
complete nutrition that your pets need, and the tastes they crave.
The first thing you may notice when opening up a bag of Life's Abundance food is
how fresh it smells. Their food is "fast-cooked" for only 12.5 seconds between
215-218 degrees using an extrusion process similar to pressure cooking.
This helps maintain the vitamins and nutritional value of each and every
wholesome ingredient. From the time their food is cooked it’s only four
to six weeks until it reaches a customer’s door making it the freshest
dry food on the market today. Most companies keep their products in
trucks or warehouses with no climate control for as long as one year
where it can become spoiled or tainted. They maintain strict inventory
controls to ensure the quality and safety of their foods.
"I began researching pet foods on-line and stumbled onto your website.
After reading about commercial foods in comparison to your product,
I knew I had to try it. In fact, I was beginning to suspect either
an allergy or sensitivity to gluten. All I knew was my dogs were not
able to properly digest the foods I was giving them. Life's Abundance
arrived the day after I ordered it and that evening I gave them a taste
test to see if they liked it. You'd have thought they were eating candy!
Without bothering to "wean" them off the Wellness (which was the latest
brand they were eating), I plunged ahead with the LA. They gobbled it
down and actually seemed satisfied after eating their normal portions
(something my female never did).; The next time Ashi had a bowl movement
it was BEAUTIFUL! And in the last week since the new food was introduced
there has been no indication of vomiting, diarhea or constant begging for
treats. Thankyou..thank you...thank you! I've already started two neighbors
on Life's Abundance and plan to let everyone I know about it. I also volunteer
for Eskie Rescuer's United and plan to send out an all points bulliten about
this marvelous product. Dr. Bicks...you deserve a medal for this!" Mary

Instinctive Choice for felines
is a premium cat food recipe features safe and wholesome grain-free ingredients,
with fresh, highly digestible, human-quality proteins from organic chicken, turkey,
chicken liver and shrimp.
But for a cat food to be considered truly exceptional, we believe it must meet
several specific nutritional criteria. Not only should a cat food score well on the
majority of eight distinct measures, it must score well on every measure. Even if
one area is overlooked, you could be compromising your cat’s chances for wellness and longevity. Dr. Jane Bicks' important message to pet lovers
Instinctive Choice contains nutrient rich water or “biological
water,” which contains nutritional components found in meats and chicken broth. This
allows your cat to obtain moisture closer to the way a cat in the wild would get it.
It also contains added omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, chelated minerals, taurine,
l-carnitine, vitamin E and a superior blend of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants
to help contribute to a healthy daily diet.
Our cat's ancestors were desert animals, so
they got most of their moisture or water from their prey. As a result,
most modern cats lack the desire to drink water, which can lead to urinary
To account for the unique dietary needs of your cat, all of the
following must be included in the formula: a diverse array of
high-quality proteins; healthy species-specific animal fat; a
guaranteed amount of the antioxidant Vitamins A, C and E; a
guaranteed amount of
omega-3 fatty acids (for
optimal benefit omega-3’s should be scientifically balanced with omega-6
fatty acids); prebiotics; a guaranteed amount of probiotics; an
array of vegetables; and fruits. Furthermore, to minimize health risks, no
wheat or wheat gluten or corn or corn gluten-based products should be featured.
If your current food doesn’t score well on every single one of these eight distinct
measures, we strongly suggest that you feed your beloved canine Life’s Abundance.

How is Life's Abundance Food Prepared?
LA's premium kibble health food is prepared by a family-owned, third-generation
pet food maker, where creating a high quality food is not only a priority and a family tradition, it’s an art form.
Batches of food are produced in limited runs on a weekly basis, minimizing
periods of storage and helping us to deliver the freshest-possible product to your front door.
When you pick up a bag of dog food from a retail store, it’s impossible to know
the history behind the product you’re holding. You don’t know how long it’s been
on the shelf, or how long it lingered in the storeroom before being placed on
the shelf. You don’t know how long it was stowed in a shipping container,
subjected to temperature extremes. You don’t know how long it was stockpiled
in a distribution center prior to shipping. In fact, many mass-produced dog
foods are stashed away in tractor trailers without any form of climate-control
for weeks, even months. And, you have no idea if proper handling of bags and
pest-control are priorities for the packaging centers and warehouses where
the product is bagged and stored. Their commitment to providing your dog and cat
with a superior food goes well .beyond the formula and the individual
ingredients. To ensure the safety and quality of the final product,
we exercise control, from preparation to packaging to storage.
Life's Abundance pet food is unaffected by pet food recall,
and you can feel secure and confident in feeding LA
foods to your animal companions. The company has absolutely no association,
past or present, with the recall-affected companies or facilities. Their
products have always been free of wheat and corn and none
of their ingredients come from China. Their canned foods, dry foods, treats
and supplements are produced and stored under different conditions than
those of large commercial pet food manufacturers.
