BEEFY RICE: Lean Beef, Brown Rice, Peas, Carrots, Olive Oil.
Nutrition Facts: Crude Protein not < 6%, Crude Fat not < 5%, Crude Fiber not > 1%, Moisture not >75%, Calories per 6 oz pouch: 230.
Beef is the ideal protein for working breeds such as German Shepherds, Great Danes, Sheepdogs, Bernese Mountain Dogs, Boxers, Bull Mastiffs, Dobermans, Rottweilers, Akita, Malamutes, Great Pyrenees, Borzoi Hounds and Pomeranians as well as all types of CATTLE DOGS (makes sense, huh?)
Lean ground USDA Choice Beef -A favorite of many dogs, this superior protein provides essential amino acids and minerals. Specifically found in high amounts are:
• B vitamins that: help with circulation and utilization of fatty acids (for healthy skin), boost the metabolism to help overweight dogs, fight anemia by producing red-blood cells.
• Potassium, Sodium and Magnesium maintain fluid balance and aid nerve function.
• Calcium and Phosphorous for teeth and bones, transfer of energy and muscle function
• Sulphur for healthy skin nails and hair to fight itchiness and allergies
• Iron critical for healthy red blood cells and to boost immune system
Brown Rice -A wholesome whole grain that provides the complex carbohydrates that your dog needs for energy, also contains:
• Choline is a fat emulsifier, a deficiency of which causes heart disease and neurological disorders
• B1, B3 , B6 vitamins for circulation, metabolism and processing of other nutrients, a lack can cause diarrhea, dermatitis and dementia as well as lowered immunity
• Vitamin E is a potent antioxidant that aids healing and retards aging and can prevent heart disease
• Manganese for collagen formation and to prevent impaired growth
• Chromium, which is sometimes called Glucose Tolerance Factor is needed to metabolize glucose
• Silicon to maintain flexible arteries and to heal wounds and ward off skin disorders.
• Potassium, Magnesium (see above)
Peas -Provides protein and a good source of:
• Vitamin A supports skeletal growth, immune system, vision and nerve function. A shortage of this can lead to skin lesions, liver damage, blindness, deafness, infection and night-hyperactivity
• Fiber aids in the management of cholesterol and blood sugar
• Potassium (see above)
Carrots- Offer antioxidants and phytochemicals that also provide Vitamin A and Carotenoids that fight cancer.
Olive Oil- A tasty “good” fat that has anti-inflammatory properties and is heart healthy. It also:
• Is found to fight cancer
• Is rich in polyphenols that function as anti-oxidants
• Protects the digestive tract

Pork was historically a staple in the diets of Standard, Miniature and Toy Poodles, as well as Pit Bulls, Manchester (Rat) Terriers, Pugs, Pekingese, Shar-peis, Shnauzers.
Diced USDA Choice Pork: Lean pork provides all 9 essential amino acids in an easily digestible form. It helps to build and repair tissues throughout the body and a small amount provides over half of the RDA for different nutrients a dog needs. It also is high in:
• Vitamin B1which helps in carbohydrate and protein digestion and a lack of which can cause central nervous system disorders and muscle weakness
• Vitamin B2 does much the same as B1 but also helps with cell growth and a lack of it can cause skin lesions, excess shedding and an oily coat.
• Vitamin B3 stimulates circulation, processes amino acids, and aids in HCL production. A deficiency of this can manifest itself in dermatitis, diarrhea and dementia.
• Vitamin B6 is essential for metabolism but more importantly a shortage can cause a host of problems: neurological disorders, anemia, heart disease, tooth decay, dermatitis, swollen tongue and lowered immunity.
• Vitamin B12 for red blood cells and assimilation of fats, carbs and proteins and to prevent fatigue and impaired neurological function.
• Magnesium is important for proper muscle and nerve function and if lacking can lead to convulsions and seizures.
• Iron, Phosphorous and Zinc (see above).
Whole White Potatoes: Contain multiple B vitamins plus:
• Potassium and natural sodium to maintain fluid balance for energy and cellular health.
• Iron for healthy red blood cells and cellular respiration.
• Magnesium is important for proper muscle and nerve function and if lacking can lead to convulsions and seizures.

Rudy Green’s Maned Wolf Diet Leads to 2 Pups!

Zoo Celebrates Birth of

Two Maned Wolf Pups

 

The Louisville Zoo is thrilled to announce the birth of two maned wolf pups. The two females were born February 14 to Sadie and Rocko, both five years old. Each weighed about 7 pounds at the time of their neonatal examinations.

 

Maned wolf gestation is similar to a domestic dog which is about two months. Sadie has nursed the pups since they were born and they should be weaned at around 4 months of age.  Both parents will also regurgitate food to the pups to assist with the transition from milk to solid foods.

The Louisville Zoo is continually seeking the very best methods in nutrition, veterinary care, and animal husbandry and consistently monitors the health of the animals. Prior to the fall/winter breeding season, zoo keepers and veterinary staff developed a plan to optimize the health of both adult wolves.  Sadie was underweight, had a poor appetite, and suboptimal stool quality.  Following a thorough medical evaluation and treatment plan, a diet change was pursued to improve food intake, body condition, and stool quality. This diet change was achieved with collaboration with the Maned Wolf Species Survival Plan (SSP) nutritionist Dr. Cheryl Morris and  Rudy Green’s Doggy CuisineTM creator and President Karla Haas. Special custom-made whole food recipes were developed by these renowned professionals in the field using human grade meats and vegetables.     The Rudy Green brand has been producing human grade, gently cooked food for dogs since 2006 and is sold in Kroger pet aisle freezers and online via amazon.

 

The Louisville Zoo contacted Ms. Haas and together they began experimenting with a custom formulated diet in September 2016.  Both wolves were gradually transitioned onto it after initial testing of several recipes.  The new diet, in conjunction with recommended nutritional supplements by Dr. Morris, resulted in improvements in overall health. The Louisville Zoo is proud that this team approach has resulted in the birth of two maned wolf pups, the first for the Louisville Zoo in 10 years.

The Rudy Green’s Maned Wolf Diet is nick-named “Sadie’s Stew”and interest in alternative and more healthful diets for the maned wolves is spreading among zoos nationally.

ABOUT MANED WOLVES

The maned wolf is native to South America and can be found throughout Brazil, Paraguay, Argentina, Bolivia, Peru and Uruguay. Maned wolves are solitary. The maned wolf is an omnivore. Half of their diet is fruit supplemented with small mammals, birds and reptiles, insects, nuts, eggs and grass. The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species lists the maned wolf as threatened.
