Frequently Asked Questions

IS YOUR PRODUCT SAFE?

Absolutely! Our product has been lab tested to certify it meets (and exceeds!) the standards set forth by the AAFCO, and federal & state governments to be safe and provide your dog with excellent nutrition.

We are fully licensed to produce and distribute commercial dog food in Colorado. We meet & exceed standards by leaps and bounds!

IS YOUR PRODUCT VETERNARIAN-APPROVED?

Yes, our product has been independently evaluated by multiple Canine Nutritionists and Veterinarians that have received advanced education in nutrition.

Butterfly (Dog) Food is the result of 11 years of un-biased research and real-world trials (with very willing dog participants).  Plus, federal & state mandated product testing.

WHERE DO YOUR INGREDIENTS COME FROM?

We grow most of our vegetable ingredients on our own farm here in Colorado Springs! We follow organic farming practices, but are not USDA certified, so we can’t use the magic word.

Anything we can’t grow we purchase from a family-owned food supply company that caters to local restaurants.  We are their only non-restaurant customer.

We NEVER use preservatives, synthetic vitamins or minerals, meat byproducts/meals, diseased meat, antibiotics, added hormones, colors, fillers, or artificial anything! (Every other dog food we've ever seen has at minimum preservatives or synthetics, and most have all the other yucky stuff too.  Why?  Because it is cheaper to produce.)

Butterfly (Dog) Food is 100% whole food and human grade.  We use 100% non-GMO vegetables, fruit, rice, & oats, all natural premium cuts of meat, wild-caught fish, and sea salt. That's it.

FULL INGREDIENT LIST

HOW MUCH FOOD SHOULD I FEED MY DOG?

How much food a dog needs depends on a several factors, including age, weight, and activity level. There is no hard & fast rule.  You may need to make a judgement call and adjust how much and when you feed your dog. We feed our pups 3x a day.

The below feeding chart is intended as a guideline for how much Butterfly (Dog) Food should be served in a day if served as a primary meal.  Butterfly (Dog) Food may also be served as a meal topper or soft treat.

Why does Butterfly (Dog) Food sometimes look different week to week?

Butterfly (Dog) Food is usually either pink or orange.  The color is largely determined by beets!  Sometimes we use red beets and sometimes we use golden beets, hence the variation in color.  Slight variations week to week, batch to batch, help to ensure your dog gets well rounded nutrition.

What if I run out of food before my next delivery day?

We recommend buying back-up food and keeping it in your freezer. Once frozen, simply submerge the container in water for a couple hours to defrost.

If you have exhausted your back-up, please send us an e-mail and we will do our best to accommodate your need!

You may also change your subscription within your account if it appears you will need more each week than originally anticipated.

Can I get deliveries more than once per week?

At this time delivery is only available to your address once per week. Many of our
customers freeze half of their order upon delivery and defrost it mid-week.

HOW DO I SERVE AND STORE BUTTERFLY (DOG) FOOD?

Butterfly (Dog) Food is gently cooked and ready to eat. We recommend freezing half of your weekly delivery. Defrost it mid-week and serve.

To defrost Butterfly (Dog) Food, simply submerge the container in water for a couple hours. Or, you can defrost it in the refrigerator overnight.

You may serve the food cold from the refrigerator. Or, you can heat it briefly in the microwave to take the chill off.

HOW DO I TRANSITION MY DOG TO BUTTERFLY (DOG) FOOD?

Transitioning to any new food requires a bit of time in order to allow your dogs body to acclimate to its new nutrition source.

We suggest doing this transition over 5-7 days. Gradually incorporate more and more of the new food by mixing it with your dogs current food. 

Day 1:  25% Butterfly (Dog) Food / 75% old food

You could make Butterfly (Dog) Food with ingredients found at your local supermarket.  But because we own our own farm, we can make it and offer it to you for less.  Plus, we save you the mess!  And we offer free delivery! Win, Win, Win!

MY DOG CAN'T HAVE CHICKEN. DO YOU HAVE OTHER OPTIONS?

Our Original Recipe combines chicken, eggs, salmon, sardines, and beans as the main protein sources.  Many dogs that have experienced digestive issues with chicken-based foods in the past, do not experience the same symptoms with Butterfly (Dog) Food.  Here's why…

Most chicken-based formulas are hot/cold unbalanced, and cause inflammation in canines.  Inflammation is the root of disease.

Chicken is considered a 'hot' or 'heating' food in traditional eastern medicine.  When chicken is unbalanced in relation to 'cool' or 'cooling' ingredients, it causes inflammation.  But when chicken is balanced with cool ingredients (like apples, bananas, broccoli, celery, eggs, leafy greens, and kidney beans – all of which are in our formula) it does not cause the same issues in many canines.  In fact, dogs flourish when they eat a hot/cold balanced diet.

At this time, we only offer our Original Recipe. But perhaps you will consider giving it a try.  It is by far the cleanest dog food on the market!
