How It All Began
The Annamaet Grain Free Line
Annamaet Petfoods, a family owned and operated company, is made in the United States with no ingredients from tainted sources. Their products are holistic and Annamaet maintains strict standards of quality control. All meat and fish used in their formulas are passed fit for human consumption. All of their products are corn, wheat, and soy free. Annamaet's products also now contain algae! Algae is a stable and totally sustainable source of Omega-3 fatty acids. Designed for optimum health, their grain free canine formulas can also help ear, skin and coat issues as well as chronic digestive problems.
Annamaet Lean Dog Food
Why Annamaet Lean?
Obesity is the number one health problem in dogs today and mimics the trends in humans. At Annamaet, they feel there needs to be a feeding option and plan for those dogs prone to being overweight. After consultation with a veterinary nutritionist, Annamaet made a product with superior ingredients and all of the attributes of a weight control diet (high protein, low fat, additional carnitine, and omega 3 fatty acids) without all of the fiber. In an effort to help their customers, you will find two feeding instructions. For those customers that want to be able to feed more to their normal active dogs, there are "normal feeding directions;" for those dogs struggling with weight problems, there are "obese prone feeding directions." Of course, all dogs are different and your veterinarian can help you tailor a weight maintenance program using Annamaet Lean Dog Food.
