Quick Baked & Air Dried - 100% Synthetic-Free

Carna4 Easy-Chew Venison Dog Food variety is whole food nutrition for all life stages of your dog customized with a slightly softer, smaller nugget – perfect for the little mouths of puppies and small breeds, as well as older dogs that have trouble with chewing. Carna4’s delicious air-dried nuggets are highly digestible and so densely packed with whole foods that you may need to feed 10-15% less per day than you are used to. Our venison formula is loaded with pastured New Zealand venison. New Zealand has some of the cleanest agriculture in the world and is a BSE-free country. We also include whole produce and our amazing mix of certified organic sprouted seeds that have been germinated to unleash a POWERHOUSE of NUTRIENTS naturally, to support your dog’s intestinal health, energy, skin and coat. We then quick-bake & gently dry it to give your dog bio-available vitamins and minerals, without synthetic additives of any kind. No vitamin pre-mix needed nor added, ever.

Like all Carna4 formulas, our fresh food ingredients provide your dog a clean, complete whole foods diet that is every-day-easy. Perfect for alternating with a raw or home-cooked diet. Our sprouted seed mix offers a wealth of super-nutrients, including very high levels of naturally occurring antioxidants and Omega-3 fatty acids, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and billions of CFUs of probiotics to levels far exceeding AAFCO standards.

And thanks to our sprouted seeds, all our Carna4 formulas are LOW GLYCEMIC and LOW GLUTEN – ideal for sensitive dogs. We use only 100% true food and you can easily pronounce the name of every ingredient in Carna4 because every one is grown only on Canadian, American, and New Zealand farms. No synthetics, no byproducts, no meals, no fillers, no protein concentrates, just REAL FOOD for your dog.

We test every batch of Carna4 for 15 different pathogens and toxins. Nothing leaves our bakery until it is checked thoroughly for safety.

Recommended Daily Feeding Guide
Ideal daily feeding portions will vary for different dogs, depending on age, size, breed, environment and activity levels. Because Carna4 is so concentrated in high quality nutrients that are easily absorbed by your dog, you will need to feed 15% to 25% fewer cups per day than most other dry foods. The amounts shown below are guidelines only and you should carefully monitor your dog’s weight, until an ideal balance is found.

Transitioning to Carna4:
It will take several days for your dog to adjust to the richer nutrients in Carna4. Start by mixing one part Carna4 to four parts of your dog’s old food. Gradually increase the proportion of Carna4 over 7-10 days until you are feeding all Carna4. Remember that you will feed slightly fewer cups of Carna4 than other dry foods.

Your dog may have larger stools in the early part of his or her transition period as the better quality fiber in Carna4 helps to clean out the colon. This is a normal and healthy effect and you will see the stools return to a normal size later in the transition. When transitioning to Carna4 from another diet, try sprinkling in some Flora4 ground sprouted seeds food topper to help aid digestion and normalize stools faster.

Feeding Your Puppy: Feed small quantities in 3 or 4 feedings at the same times each day, reducing to twice per day after 6 months. Divide the total cups per day from the chart above by the number of feedings to determine how much to set out each time. After 20 minutes, remove any food remaining in the puppy’s bowl.

Pregnant or Nursing Dogs: Add up to 50% more food per day for pregnant dogs after the first 6 weeks. When nursing, the mother should be allowed to free feed throughout the day. She may eat 2 or 3 times as much as a normal adult during this time.

Remember to:

Provide your dog with plenty of fresh, clean drinking water at all times.
Bring your dog to the veterinarian regularly.
Give your dog play and exercise every day.

Maria & Dave brought their extensive experience in natural pet foods and joined forces to create Carna4 with a team of nutritionists, engineers and food scientists, who have graduate degrees in biochemistry, nutrition and biology. Our team has more than 50 years combined industry experience in developing complete and balanced pet foods.

We enlisted the services of Mortec Scientific Inc., a third-party research and laboratory testing firm that specializes in food, pet food and natural health products for some of the most well-known consumer goods companies. Mortec also works with North America’s leading scientist in the field of identifying, classifying and transferring probiotics (or “good bacteria”).

With these experts, we set out to create a truly natural pet food that would surpass all others by combining 100% fresh, table-grade meat (and no meat meal) with the power
of sprouted seeds and gentle baking to maximize the density of bio-available nutrients
and flavor.

What happened next surprised all of us. The team surpassed expectations by formulating the first food to use only natural, pure food ingredients to greatly exceed AAFCO standards for the vitamins, minerals and other nutrients dogs need for all life stages and provide outstanding levels of antioxidants, live probiotics and enzymes. This success means that unlike other pet foods, we don’t need to add any synthetic or manmade additives. That means no vitamin and mineral pre-mixes, no preservatives, and 100% true food ingredients.

How can this be? Essentially, Carna4 delivers pure, naturally boosted nutrition thanks to its recipe of sprouted seeds, table-grade meat, whole produce and herbs, which are gently dried to seal in the most bio-available nutrients and flavor possible.

To stay true to Carna4’s natural values, we select our high quality, whole vegetables, fruit, eggs and fresh meat from the same Canadian and American farms that supply your grocery stores and we work with family operations whenever we can.

We then blend these whole food ingredients to preserve nature’s optimal balance of nutrients; quick-bake then air-dry our product in small batches; and then thoroughly safety test before it leaves the plant. Finally, Carna4 moves swiftly from our family-run bakery to your local pet specialty store’s shelf so that your pet can enjoy the freshest and tastiest food possible.

The Carna4 difference means that you’ll likely see a change in the health and vitality of your dog. Unlike any other product on the market, Carna4’s fresh ingredients with bio-available, boosted vitamins & minerals, probiotics & prebiotics, antioxidants and Omega-3 fatty acids, have the power to give your dog a shiny new coat, brighter eyes and a new spring in his (or her) step.
