Health Indicators

Visible proof your dog’s kibble is working.

Poop matters as much as a soft and shiny coat. When active dogs are stressed due to an imbalance in their nutritional requirements, often their poop will lose its firmness. Pooping more than twice a day may also be an indication that your dog’s food contains an insufficient level of protein that high-energy activities demand for muscle growth and recovery.

In addition to stool consistency, the volume of food your dog eats should be greater than the amount of poop you scoop. If not, it’s an indication that she’s not pulling enough of the right nutrients from their food source. Often it means there are too many fillers being used that simply pass without being digested.

Coat sheen and softness is also a visible extension of food quality. Proper levels of omega-3 fatty acids and a premium protein mix are essential ingredients for active dogs that directly impact your animal’s coat.

Perhaps one of the most obvious signs your dog’s kibble isn’t working like it should – is a simple lack of energy, which may manifest itself into undesired weight loss.

Health Indicators

Activity Levels

To keep your dog in optimal body condition, monitor your dog’s weight. You may need to reduce or increase feed rations as needed, based on your dog’s age, breed, environment and activity level.

Just like humans, your dog’s activity level determines the proper balance of protein, good fat sources and carbohydrates they require in their food. For example, higher levels of simple carbs are just as important as protein and fat levels for optimal performance during high-energy activities.

Top three energy sources you’ll find in Inukshuk:

Protein (1st Ingredient) – Active dogs need protein to repair and rebuild muscle that is broken down during exercise.

Fat (2nd Ingredient) – Canine athletes use fat for energy more quickly than an average family pet. Fat contributes up to 75 percent of the energy demanded during endurance training.

Carbohydrates (3rd Ingredient) – In the early stages of moderate exercise, carbohydrates provide 40 to 50 percent of the energy requirement.

Muscle growth & recovery dictates performance.

Working dogs need a high-energy diet, and meeting these nutritional requirements is what we do. Using just the right balance of quality ingredients, and vacuum infusion technology, we have created industry-leading formulas these animals demand for muscle growth and recovery.

Protein and Carbohydrates

Protein (Chicken and Fish) is the key ingredient for building muscle, and carbohydrate intake helps offset muscle soreness and recovery for your dog after strenuous exercise. As muscle mass breaks down from exercise or age, protein must be replaced.

Fish Oils

Fish oils serve as excellent sources of omega-3 fatty acids, which support the immune system and assists with muscle recovery and growth, while providing many other health benefits for your dog. Our vacuum infusion processincorporates the oils deep into each kibble, enhancing flavor and providing a dry feel product.
