Where is Brothers Dog Food manufactured?
Brothers Dog Food was Designed by a Ph.D Animal Nutritionist to be the healthiest kibble dog food possible. The formulas have not been altered in an  in any way since they were first made. 

We are committed to making the healthiest dog food possible and everything we see and hear from our customers confirms that we have achieved that goal and we do not intend to "fix" what is not broken.

We get regular requests from customers imploring us not to sell the company or change the food because it is the best food their dog has ever eaten.

Our food is sourced by LANI in the midwest and then cooked and bagged in El Paso, Texas by a family owned company, like ourselves, that we can rely on to make our food to the exceptionally high standards we designed into it.

Many  people are under the false assumption that a company that owns its own manufacturing plant will make a better quality product but in fact they can get away with doing anything they want since they don't have to answer to anyone.

If a dog is used to eating a ‘small bites kibble’, is the kibble size of Brothers Dog Food suitable for them?
The kibble size is on the small side and we have never had a complaint that it was not suitable for a dog of any size. The high amount of protein in the food ranging from 30% to 40% is over 90% animal sourced protein and the dogs are far more interested in the high animal protein taste than they are about the size of the kibble.

Which fermentation products are used in the dog food? Does it contain any kind of yeast?
The formula doesn't have any kind of yeast; but it does have a lot of specialized Probiotics that help control yeast. The Probiotics we use are encapsulated by a special process that prevents them from activating prematurely, so they open in the gut where they carry out the necessary functions that are so important. The Encapsulated Probiotics are made up of dried enterococcus faecium fermentation product, dried lactobacillus acidophilus fermentation product, and dried lactobacillus fermentation product.

Is the dog food appropriate for feeding puppies?
Brothers Dog Food is a good choice for puppies. The feeding rate for adults is 1/4 cup daily for every 6 lbs. of weight or 1 cup for every 25 lbs., and then adjusted as needed. For weight above 75 lbs., feed at a reduced rate for every 25 lbs. of weight. Feed 1/2 of the daily amount twice, i.e. morning and evening.

Puppies need as much as 50 to 100% more food during their growth and high activity stages usually for the first year. However, it’s important to ensure that they are not overfed, especially large breed puppies. Keep in mind that your pet’s ribs shouldn’t be visible, but you should definitely be able to feel them. Check their weight at least once a week and adjust their meals to maintain an ideal weight.

How should I transition my dog to Brothers Dog Foods?

Usually, dogs are fed the same food for a long time, which means a sudden food change can make it difficult for your pet’s digestive system to adapt. So, it’s important to introduce a new formula slowly. This will not only give your dog some time to adjust to the new food but will also reduce digestive issues. You can start by mixing 25% of the new dog food with 75% of the old formula. Then during the 10 to 14 days, gradually increase the new dog food portion until you switch to the new formula 100%.


What is a rotational diet? Can this be done with Brothers?

Rotating between Brothers formulas is a great way to prevent your dog from getting bored of eating the same thing every day while offering them various proteins and fats. Once a particular formula is finished, you can opt for a rotational diet and try a different recipe. The first time you introduce a new dog food for rotation, it would be best to mix the food 50/50 so that your pet transitions well to the new formula.


Any feeding tips for dog owners?

We recommend you to feed Brothers Dog Food two times a day. Make sure to divide the suggested amount on the feeding guide into two equal meals, spaced eight to 12 hours apart. For instance, if the feeding guide says 1 cup per day, we recommend feeding 1/2 a cup in the morning and 1/2 a cup at night. As you understand your pet’s ideal daily nutritional requirements, you might need to adjust the portions. The amounts may change according to your pet’s age and activity levels. Remember, a lean dog is a healthy pet.
