Carna4 Easy-Chew Fish variety is whole food nutrition for all life stages of your dog customized with a slightly softer, smaller nugget – perfect for the little mouths of puppies and small breeds, as well as older dogs that have trouble with chewing. Carna4’s delicious air-dried nuggets are highly digestible and so densely packed with whole foods that you may need to feed 10-15% less per day than you are used to. Their Fish formula is loaded with fresh wild-caught herring and perch. They then add whole produce and our amazing mix of certified organic sprouted seeds that have been germinated to unleash a POWERHOUSE of NUTRIENTS naturally, to support your dog’s intestinal health, energy, skin and coat. They then quick-bake & gently dry it to give your dog bio-available vitamins and minerals, without synthetic additives of any kind. No vitamin pre-mix needed nor added, ever.

Like all Carna4 formulas, the fresh food ingredients provide your dog a clean, complete whole foods diet that is every-day-easy. Perfect for alternating with a raw or home-cooked diet. Their sprouted seed mix offers a wealth of super-nutrients, including very high levels of naturally occurring antioxidants and Omega-3 fatty acids, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and billions of CFUs of probiotics to levels far exceeding AAFCO standards.

And thanks to their sprouted seeds, all our Carna4 formulas are LOW GLYCEMIC and LOW GLUTEN – ideal for sensitive dogs. They use only 100% true food and you can easily pronounce the name of every ingredient in Carna4 because every one is grown only on Canadian and American farms. Nothing imported, no synthetics, no byproducts, no meals, no fillers, no protein concentrates, just REAL FOOD for your dog.

    Feeding Guide

     

    Ideal daily feeding portions will vary for different dogs, depending on age, size, breed, environment and activity levels. Because Carna4 is so concentrated in high quality nutrients that are easily absorbed by your dog, you will need to feed 10% to 15% fewer cups per day than most other dry foods. The amounts shown below are guidelines only and you should carefully monitor your dog’s weight, until an ideal balance is found.
