Beef. A protein your pup may enjoy just as much as you do. While sharing a steak dinner every night might not be the best for you or your pup, there are many ways for your pup to make beef the star of their diet.
At Ollie, we created our Fresh Beef Dish with Sweet Potatoes recipe to deliver great taste and high-quality nutrition. Learn about how we make our delicious food and the ingredients we carefully select just for your pup!
We use human-grade beef, just like you use for your steaks and hamburgers. This muscle meat is also mixed with organ meat including beef heart, liver, and kidney. Organ meat is a great source of lean protein, vitamins, minerals, and iron. It also contains taurine, an amino acid that is believed to be part of the reason why some dogs on certain grain-free diets develop dilated cardiomyopathy. It is believed that in addition to missing grains, these diets do not have enough taurine and that is why dogs might be getting sick. If you are interested in adding organ meat to your dog’s diet outside of or in addition to what is in Ollie, chat with your veterinarian first.
Sweet potatoes provide a boost of energy as they are rich in carbohydrates, and a healthy dose of fiber to keep things moving in your pup’s digestive tract! They also contain antioxidants to help your pup fight free radicals and can help prevent inflammation. While not necessarily superior to white potatoes, these are a great choice for your pup and add a healthy boost to our recipe.
Chickpeas are a tiny but powerful boost of protein and complex carbohydrates that provide your pet with steady energy—making them an ideal ingredient for diabetic dogs or those who need to lose weight. Along with nutrients such as potassium, magnesium, folate, and vitamins A, B, and C, these mighty peas also pack a punch against harmful inflammation—the process behind conditions such as arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
Like sweet potatoes, carrots provide beta-carotene and a healthy source of carbohydrates. They also add great flavor to this recipe to complement the beef and potatoes.
A great source of omega-3 fatty acids, fish oil provides many benefits, including a healthy coat and skin, improved brain function, and reduced inflammation. Fish oil is also often supplemented for older dogs with joint pain. Since our food is approved for all life stages, from puppies to seniors, we include fish oil because of its many health benefits over the course of your best friend’s life.
Although meat-based proteins are the most valuable source for this important amino acid, they don’t always deliver the appropriate amount for every dog. Supplemental taurine helps avoid deficiencies which may lead to heart disease, retinal damage, and urinary problems.
We worked with a veterinary nutritionist to develop our delicious beef recipe. Our nutritionist helps us ensure that we use the right ingredients in the right combination to make our food healthy and safe for your pup. Our ingredients are carefully sourced and then prepared and gently cooked in our USDA-certified kitchen. When these meals are ready for your pup to eat, they’re packaged into small packs and frozen to preserve the nutrients and keep them fresh (and safe) for the journey to your pup’s bowl.
Once these packs arrive at your home, you can store them in the refrigerator or freezer. Follow all packaging directions with regard to storing and serving your pup’s meals.
We created Ollie because we wanted our pups to have the most delicious and nutritious food on the planet. We are careful to choose the best ingredients available and continue to follow research and best practice in the industry. We want our food to delight your pup and be as healthy for them as possible. We know you want to be the best pet parent you can and that means keeping your pet healthy, happy and loved. We are honored to play a role in your pup’s health and good nutrition.
It’s time to put ordinary kibble out to pasture. Give your dog the fresh flavors they crave and the nutrition they deserve with our Fresh Beef Dish with Sweet Potatoes recipe. Start building your pup’s customized meal plan and get moo-ving on the fresh food journey toward total health!
