So what do we recommend you feed your puppy?
LIFE’S ABUNDANCE NUTRITIONAL SYSTEM
WE ARE OFTEN ASKED, “WHAT SHOULD I FEED MY PUPPY? WHAT DO YOU RECOMMEND?”
We formerly fed our dogs a raw diet but understood that many families struggled with balancing their dog’s diet once home and were unable to maintain their puppy on a raw diet. Far too many popular brands of dog food are regularly recalled causing serious health issues to a great number of family pets. This led us to Life’s Abundance Nutritional System. We were so impressed by the quality of the food that our dogs not only enjoyed eating but also flourished on. We have made it our focus to protect the health and future, while maintaining the integrity, of the Australian Labradoodle Breed and to offer our families healthy, gorgeous, and sweet-tempered puppies that will bring doodle love and silly laughter to their home. We know that nutrition is an integral part of that equation.
The Life’s Abundance line of products was formulated by Dr. Jane Bicks, DVM, a holistic vet for over 20 years. She has served as President of the American Veterinarian Association of New York City, earned three Presidential Citations, was appointed by Mayor Rudolph Giuliani to help establish one of the largest animal shelters in the world, is the author of three books on responsible care and treatment of pets, and has appeared on 48 Hours, Good Morning America, CNN, Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, and more. She has also created a non-profit foundation where a percentage of her product line is contributed toward rescue and care for pets.
Many of the ingredients in commercial pet food today can actually cause our pets to have a shorter life span due to sub-par ingredients. Ingredients that cause stress on kidney and liver function, allergies, obesity, or overall poor health include; wheat, corn, and soy. By-products such as chicken heads, duck bills, fish heads, chicken and turkey feet, bones can also be included in our pet foods! Chemical additives such as BHA and BHT are known carcinogens, and Ethoxyquin is used to stabilize rubber, and these can be found in our dog’s food! These chemicals are added to provide a longer shelf life. Food can be stored on a shelf or in a warehouse for months, or even years.
Life’s Abundance does not leave factors that impact safety and quality to chance. Their commitment to providing customers with premium products goes well beyond the formulas and the individual ingredients. To ensure the safety and quality of the final product, they exercise strict control, from preparation to packaging to storage. Immediately after each product is prepared, it’s shipped directly to one of their three climate-controlled warehouses. Their shipping departments take pride in the speedy yet careful handling of products, ensuring that all orders arrive in great condition so that valued customers will enjoy the products exactly as intended. Fresher food is more nutrient-rich. While leading brands stockpile tons of food for months on end, Life’s Abundance dog food is made weekly in small-batches so it’s only 4-to-6 weeks when it’s delivered.

We’ve heard that some families think their doodle is a picky eater….
Or has a sensitive stomach, won’t eat unless their food is garnished with cheese or other treats, needs some variety… We’ve heard it all and you’re not wrong. For this reason we also think your Noble Vestal Labradoodle might like Paw Tree with options to top their food with seasonings or options to treat bad breath, bladder health, cognitive issues in seniors, dry skin, poop eaters (yes dogs do some gross things), itchy smelly ears, no energy, seasonal allergies, UTI, bad gas… the list goes on.
Paw Tree can be used in combination with Life’s Abundance or on it’s own. We recommend this alternative as a high quality nutritional choice for some of the same reasons that we like Life’s Abundance.
