Safe, high-quality food for your dog.

The Scoop Dog Food All Flavors and Sizes
Seal

To avoid including toxic chelated coppers, copper sulfates or copper proteinates in our food, we sourced each and every ingredient in our diets for purity so that the only copper you will find in our recipes were created by mother nature, which is naturally the best choice for your pet. We have created a nutritious, delicious and complete dog food containing only clean ingredients while still meeting AAFCO standard minimum copper requirements.

Ensuring safety and quality for your pet.

Our mission is to provide pet owners with a premium, science-based dog food, made with clean ingredients that provide complete nutrition for your pet, so they have the opportunity to live a healthy and happy life and to be a part of your family for a long time.

The Scoop dog food recipes are...

  • Sourced and tested for nutritional value and purity.
  • Formulated with ONLY natural copper.
  • Grain inclusive.
  • Created without the three main causes of food allergies and adverse food reactions in dogs: beef, dairy, or wheat.
  • Put through numerous digestibility and palatability studies.

We source and test every ingredient in our food for nutritional value and purity. For example, in the new flavor we're developing with salmon, we sourced farm-raised salmon vs. wild-caught salmon and choosing which one was best for our recipe was simple! We found that the farm-raised fish contained 129.2 ppm (parts per million) of chelated copper or copper sulfate, an alarming increase over the wild-caught salmon which contained a mere 1.6 ppm of natural copper.

Dilated Cardiomyopathy

Dilated Cardiomyopathy is a disease of the heart muscle that results in weakened contractions and poor pumping ability. As the disease progresses the heart chambers become enlarged, one or more valves may leak, and signs of congestive heart failure develop. The cause of Dilated Cardiomyopathy is unclear in most cases, but certain breeds appear to have an inherited predisposition.

The Scoop no chelated copper added dog foods are grain inclusive. Many emerging reports and a recent warning from the FDA implicates many reported cases of Dilated Cardiomyopathy in dogs being fed grain-free diets* (CLICK HERE to view the FDA Investigative Report). These warnings and additional concerns being reported in the veterinary profession are looking closely at limited ingredient diets that are void of some essential nutrients. Grains contain many essential amino acids that are necessary for good canine health. We continue to research into complete and balanced diets and will share this information so you can make nutritionally sound choices for your pet.

No Beef. No Milk. No Wheat

Food Allergies

Our participation in many dermatology studies with pharmaceutical companies has shown that many reoccurring ear-related infections and hot spots are food or treat related. The three most implicated ingredients are beef, wheat, and dairy. The Scoop No Chelated Copper or Copper Sulfate Added Dog Food recipes do not contain these three ingredients for this exact reason. In many food studies, by eliminating any beef, wheat, or dairy from the diets, most medical conditions cleared on their own.

  • The culprit is often food or treat protein that triggers an adverse response in the dog’s immune system.
  • Beef, wheat, and dairy are the top three ingredients related to allergic reactions.

Adverse Food Reactions

Adverse food reactions are uniquely different than food allergies in that they come in many forms, like repeated bouts with soft stool or diarrhea, vomiting food with bile early after eating, or bouts of gas and noisy gastric sounds. Many dogs being fed foods containing unnecessary additives or a protein source that they have a hard time digesting, suffer more from these symptoms. In feeding studies, by eliminating these sources most, if not all, symptoms disappeared. Also watch for additives: chemicals, preservatives, colorants, and flavorants. These are not likely to cause a true allergy, but they could trigger an adverse reaction or intolerance symptoms.

  • Symptoms similar to food allergies, but the immune system isn’t involved.
  • Triggered by an ingredient in the food or treat that just doesn’t agree with the dog’s digestive system.

Helping you understand our clean recipe.

Here is a list of our ingredients. Because it is required by the FDA that the ingredients be listed by their scientific names, sometimes it's hard to know clean ingredients from those that are not so clean. We have provided you with the scientific name of each ingredient, it’s commonly used name, along with the nutritional benefit it provides to your dog. We wanted to be transparent about what’s in our food and explain it in a way that is easy to understand.
