Verve is a combination of 100% human food grade ingredients.
Both "Verve" & "Force" foods are formulated to meet the AAFCO nutrient profiles for adult
maintenance and you don't have to add anything to make them 'complete'. However, the original idea behind these
diets was as a base for a raw or other home made diet and to facilitate that, they are somewhat 'lite' in terms
of fat and protein, so that your own choice of raw, or cooked, meat can be added, if desired. It is entirely a
matter of personal choice (and your dog's taste!) whether you add in extra meat and other ingredients, or not.
Most people with younger and more active dogs like to mix in the additional meat, and those with senior or overweight
animals usually prefer to feed the food alone.
No cooking required! Each 4 oz cup of Verve should simply be hydrated with 1 to 1-¼ cups of pure, warm,
filtered or tap water or boiled water that has been allowed to cool. It is best not to add boiling water directly
to Verve, as this will destroy many of the enzymes & nutrients present. Add the water to the food and stir.
The product will initially resemble soup. Let stand for 10 minutes minimum, for the ingredients to rehydrate sufficiently.
Add your own raw meat, meaty bones, cooked meat or other ingredients if you wish.
