A light and easily digestible menu made from 70% gently cooked rabbit, combined with rice, fresh vegetables, and tasty fruits. Enriched with valuable natural minerals and valuable flaxseed oil. The menu is rounded off with a touch of sage.
For our fresh rabbit menu, we use only fresh, food-grade ingredients in our in-house factory. High-quality rabbit meat and offal are slowly and gently cooked at low temperatures. Only then do we add the cooked rice, carrots, apples, pears, and cranberries, as well as flaxseed oil, wheat germ oil, and parsley to the cooked food. This ensures that both taste and nutrients are optimally preserved.
No high temperatures, no fillers, no artificial vitamin additives, no extrusion, no sterilized cans. The result: Like homemade, healthy food with all the nutrients from the fresh original ingredients, which tastes as good as it looks. 100% natural and 0% artificial additives. Developed with veterinarians and made with love. Simply the best food for your dog. This creates an incomparable, healthy fresh menu for your dog. Just like homemade.
Your dog will thank you for a healthy and varied diet, including a strengthened immune system, shiny fur, fewer digestive problems, better well-being, and higher vitality. The magnesium and potassium contained in chicken meat are important for various metabolic processes.
What's Inside and Why?
Freshly Cooked Rabbit (70%) Rabbit meat is not only known for its aromatic and flavorful taste. It is rich in proteins and contains a high amount of protein. Rabbit meat is therefore a protein-rich and low-calorie energy source for dogs.
Rice (9%) Rice contains very little fat, but valuable complex carbohydrates that are processed more slowly by the body, making your dog feel full for a longer time. Additionally, rice contains many important B-vitamins that are essential for skin, nerves, and metabolism.
Carrots (8.2%) In addition to providing energy, fiber, and few calories, carrots are healthy as they are an excellent source of vitamins and minerals. Particularly noteworthy are Vitamin A and Biotin. Carrots are rich in Beta-Carotene, which is converted into Vitamin A in the body.
Apple (5%) Apples are suitable for a healthy diet as they contain many vitamins, minerals, and trace elements like potassium, calcium, B-vitamins, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, folic acid, pectins, and polyphenols.
Pear (4%) Pears contain numerous vitamins (Vitamins A and C, as well as various B-vitamins) and can prevent or slow down signs of aging in dogs. They also have a high concentration of fiber, which is positive for the heart health of dogs and can even prevent cancer.
Guar Seeds (3%) Guar seeds are a good source of fiber, which can help support your dog's digestion. Additionally, Guar seeds contain antioxidants that help protect your dog's cells from damage.
Cranberries (0.5%) Cranberries have a positive effect on the bladder and urinary tract. Furthermore, the B-vitamins contained are good for the nerves and the immune system of your furry friend. The berries are believed to inhibit cancer.
Flaxseed Oil (0.2%) Flaxseed oil is rich in unsaturated fatty acids like Omega-3 and Linoleic acid. According to scientific studies, flaxseed oil may have preventive and soothing effects on conditions like diabetes, osteoarthritis, or elevated cholesterol levels. However, its actual effects have not been sufficiently proven.
Wheat Germ Oil (0.1%) Due to its healthy fatty acid composition, wheat germ oil helps lower cholesterol levels, prevent cardiovascular diseases, and strengthen the immune defense.
Parsley Parsley is extremely healthy and an important nutrient supplier for Vitamins A, B, C, E, folic acid, and iron.
Why Cooked Food?
What exactly is gently cooked food? Quite simply: Better food for your dog! Our cooked menus are all made from high-quality, fresh ingredients from food production: Pure muscle meat and healthy offal, fresh vegetables and fruits, selected oils and herbs, as well as a digestible healthy carbohydrate source (rice or sweet potato) together, in a carefully balanced ratio, form complete menus for a species-appropriate, varied, and digestible feeding of your dog.
We consistently avoid artificial additives, preservatives, flavor enhancers, and attractants. While the fresh meat and offal are gently cooked at 90°C, the vegetables and fruits are only blanched, preserving heat-sensitive natural minerals and vitamins.
Only in the final step are high-quality oils and natural ingredients like rosehip powder, seaweed meal, brewer's yeast, and algae calcium added to the menu.
Fidelis Fresh Menus are absolutely unique and simply put: "Better Food" for your dog! We cook for your dog, just like you would at home.
Disadvantages of Other Types of Food
What are the disadvantages of other types of dog food compared to the cooked Fresh Menus from Fidelis?
Extruded / cold-pressed dry food: - Is almost always made from a significant proportion of cereals, animal meals, and hardened fats - Fresh ingredients like meat, offal, and vegetables are used only to a very small extent or not at all - The extrusion or cold pressing manufacturing process heats the product to very high temperatures, destroying almost all remaining nutrients and minerals - The vitamins and minerals contained in the food are added to the food in artificial form - Dry food often contains preservatives and attractants
Wet food / canned food: - Most manufacturers use low-quality meat and slaughterhouse by-products, plant by-products, and artificial additives for can production - Fresh ingredients like meat, offal, and vegetables are used only to a very small extent or not at all - During the sterilization process of the cans in the so-called autoclaves, the food is heated to a temperature of 110 – 140°C, losing a large part of the nutrients and minerals present in the product - The vitamins and minerals contained in the food are added to the food in artificial form - Canned food often contains preservatives and attractants
B.A.R.F. (Raw Food) - The fundamentally good approach to feed your dog with species-appropriate raw food consisting of meat, offal, as well as vegetables and fruits often encounters a major problem in practice: raw, untreated B.A.R.F. products are often contaminated with a high number of germs and bacteria. This not only frequently leads to intolerance or severe digestibility issues in the dog but also poses serious health risks for the owner, as they come into contact with the food during thawing and serving. Enterobacteria and E. coli bacteria can cause severe health problems in both dogs and humans. - Likewise, the protein content in B.A.R.F. menus is often too high, which can lead to health problems in many dogs.
Puppy up to 8 months: approx. 4% Dog up to 15 kg: approx. 2 - 3% Dog over 15 kg: approx. 2 - 2.5%
The percentage refers to your dog's body weight. For example, a dog weighing 20 kg and a recommended daily ration of 2% needs 400g of food per day.
The following values are guideline amounts for the amount of food for normally active, unneutered healthy dogs. However, individual requirements can deviate up to 50% from the calculated values due to age, breed, or activity. These are just starting points for estimating the daily amount of food.
Transitioning to FIDELIS
Fidelis recommends an immediate transition to our food. Skip one meal (preferably in the evening) and start with our food at the next meal. Feed a single variety for the first 14 days so that your dog's stomach can get used to the food. After two weeks, we recommend feeding different flavors alternately.
Delivery & Storage
Our Fresh Menus are delivered to you frozen and are frozen for approximately 6 months. Cooled in the refrigerator, our menus are easily stored for about 5-7 days. We recommend using opened menus within 2-3 days.
