There is no such thing as a prescription diet.Fresh, whole foods packed with nutrients are recommended for everyone (person or dog) looking to improve their health.In humans, diseases such as obesity, diabetes, and cancer have been linked to processed foods. If you feed your dog processed commercial foods, one can expect the same results as if you hate nothing but Cheetos.The fact is, quality whole foods and proper nutrition will give your pet a more fulfilling life than any pharmaceutical.Custom Dog Food For Your Unique PetAt Rick's Dog Deli, we combine simple, whole, and fresh foods that provide excellent health benefits to your best friend. We generally recommend our breed-specific Signature diets for most dogs, but sometimes we need to work around an ingredient intolerance or address a health issue specific to your pet.Rick’s Dog Deli offers custom orders designed to satisfy your dog’s nutritional needs while avoiding any ingredients that may trigger allergies or GI upset. Our therapeutic diets can be custom tailored for your dog’s condition using food to help alleviate certain ailments.Why do you need custom dog food?While Rick's Dog Deli prides itself on providing whole, nutritious foods that beats any commercial dog food, some conditions require a little extra tweaking to provide the best health benefits.We believe that diet can be used to help control and alleviate symptoms associated with many ailments. Cancer, kidney issues, obesity, diabetes, pancreatitis, liver issues, etc., vary in severity and the diet should be adjusted accordingly.Conditions like cancer require a diet that is tailored to the dog just as any type of conventional treatment would be tailored for the most effective results.Kidney disease comes in many stages and the stage of the disease determines the diet.Obesity is often a result of feeding a species-inappropriate commercial diet to a dog rather than a whole foods diet.If a dog is suffering from pancreatitis, we can add foods such as papaya, which contains natural digestive enzymes, along with using a low-fat protein to help take the stress off the pancreas, allowing it to heal.Let's Get StartedArranging for a custom diet is easy.
