I am a rotational feeder which means, among many other things, I am always seeking more options for my dogs’ food bowls. Kibble, canned, raw, dehydrated; I alternate each of these food types into Edison & Co. diet. Every day, I offer something new for them to sniff, lick, chew, gnaw, or in the case of Galileo, gulp down whole!
When choosing food options, there are a few boxes I’m looking to check off:.
- High levels of real meat protein
- Holistic fruits and vegetables
- Safe manufacturing protocols
- A brand whose good reputation precedes them

Technically speaking, dogs are classified as omnivores. Anatomically and physiologically, their bodies are designed to derive nutrients from meat and plant-based ingredients. Whether this is an adaptation that occurred over many years, a consequence of domestication and living in close quarters to humans, who knows. There are certainly lots of strong opinions out there supporting different views on the subject.
But you know what? When it comes to feeding my dogs, I know this much to be true: they love meat. Love love love, as in my boys and meat go together like rama lamma lamma ka dinga da dinga dong.
By feeding a diet high in protein, I am meeting their desire for meat and more meat while also ensuring that their caloric intake is properly balanced. The Caloric Harmony line of dog food from Weruva is crafted so that 80% of your dog’s calories come from animal-based protein.
Fruits, Vegetables and Plants:
The Caloric Harmony line of dog food also includes some important fruits, vegetables and plant-sourced nutrients. Caloric Harmony includes two such ingredients that stand out:
- Seaweed is added to provide natural prebiotic action. Prebiotics support healthy digestive function, especially in the small intestines.
- The pumpkin that is added is an excellent, all-natural source of fiber which also helps keep your dog’s digestive system healthy and active. As well, pumpkin provides key antioxidants and essential fatty acids.
We live in a time when pet food recalls are seemingly more common than any time before. In a digital world where knowledge is power and information sharing on social media can explode like wildfire, pet parents are learning about recalls faster and more frequently.
There are many reasons for pet food recalls, from unsafe ingredients, questionable processing procedures, honest to goodness human error and the list goes on. Other people better qualified than I have written volumes about pet food recalls. Here is what the FDA says.
One way Weruva ensures that the are providing the safest nutrition they can is by manufacturing their dog food in a BRC Global Standards approved facility. This is a voluntary comprehensive training, audit and certification process that ensure pet parents confidence in Weruva’s food safety program and supply chain management.
For me, a company that chooses to go the extra mile and extra buck to provide food that is manufactured in the safest way possible speaks volumes about Weruva’s values and ethics.
Weruva’s Caloric Harmony line of dog food is available in 3 different flavors, with each one free of grains and potatoes.
And Edison’s favorite, Venison and Salmon Meal Dinner with Pumpkin
Weruva also offers a unique pumpkin supplement you can add as a topper to his meal. Check out the Pumpkin Patch Up Supplement here.
