What is the difference between pro-biotic and pre-biotic?
Probiotics are the live bacteria found in certain foods or supplements that can support gut health. However, prebiotics is types of carbohydrates, mainly fibre, that the beneficial bacteria in your gut feed on.
Why are your feeding amounts lower when compared with other brands?
Eden food is more nutritionally dense as it's formulated without, gluten, grain, white potato, or any bulk fillers. Because Eden is grain-free this means the carbohydrate content is remarkably lower making the level of digestibility significantly higher, this results in smaller stool volume and feeding portions.
What advice would you give when increasing feeding amounts?
Our feeding guides are just a starting point as every dog is different. If you want to increase the feed we recommend increasing by 10% every 2 weeks ensuring that stools are firm and formed.
How much should I feed my pet?
Our online feeding calculator will help you calculate the amount your dog requires. Our feeding calculator provides a great starting point for determining how much your dog should be fed each day, nevertheless, they can be adjusted to meet your dog’s specific dietary requirements. If adjustments are needed we recommend a 10% increase/decrease every two weeks to avoid any stress on the digestive system.
As your products are grain-free, does this mean my dog will be susceptible to Dilated Cardiomyopathy?
No, DCM concerns are associated with those grain-free products containing high levels of legumes such as peas or lentils, other legume seeds, or potatoes listed as primary ingredients. The high level of legumes can cause a reduced intake of Taurine, which can impede the cardiac muscles and cells. As Eden products are high levels of human-grade meat this would not deplete the levels of Taurine in their system.
