What sets Complete Canine Companion apart from the national raw dog food brands is that we use local USDA Grade meats and fresh vegetables and fruits from local farmers markets. Like the national brands, we follow Agriculture / FDA regulations, unlike them help service we follow the National Research Council (NRC) requirements to build a balanced diet. Although AFFCO is the norm for national brands to follow, AFFCO takes the NRC findings and increases the requirements by as much as 40%. The assumption is that the nutritional value is lost in the processing.
Our goal is to build a balanced diet, using fresh whole foods with minimal synthetic vitamins and minerals. We do not use any fillers or preservatives. We select vegetables and fruits according to their value and availability, keeping starch and fiber to a minimum; dogs do not process them well.
