Good Health Starts in the Kitchen

At MaddieGirl we understand the importance of good food for good health. That is why we use REAL organic human-grade food. Each ingredient is carefully considered and chosen to provide optimal health benefits and to of course be tasty for your dog.

Organic Protein: Ground Organic Meats & Organic Eggs - Animal proteins are the most effective; they are complete proteins and easily digested. Plant proteins tend to be harder to absorb. MaddieGirl only uses certified organic meats and eggs.

Organic Vegetables: An array of vegetables is important as they supply vital nutrients, fiber and enzymes. 

Organic Fruits: While certainly dogs love sweet fruit for the taste, their bodies love the antioxidants and nutrients. 

Organic Whole Grains: Rice and Oats are a good source of carbohydrates and fiber. 

Organic Good Fats: Dogs need fat. Too little of it will cause skin & coat problems as well as create a constant feeling of hunger. Fat is especially important for active dogs; it is a good source of energy.

Calcium: Because dogs require so much protein they need quite a bit of calcium and phosphorus. The best source are bones which is why MaddieGirl dog food contains bone meal powder.

Vitamins & Minerals: MaddieGirl dog food contains nutritional yeast, a natural source for many vitamins and minerals. We also add kelp powder and natural soy lecithin for a nutritional boost

These foods, while good for humans are toxic to dogs. If your dog does consume any of these foods, contact your veterinarian immediately.

How Much Should you Feed Your Dog?

Daily Feeding Recommendations*

 

Weight                 Recommended Amount

Up to 10 lbs                1/4 to 3/4 cups (2-6oz) 

10 to 19 lbs                 3/4 to 1 cup (6-8 oz) 

20 to 29 lbs                 1 to 1 1/4 cups (8-10 oz) 

30 to 49 lbs                 1 1/4 to 2 cups (10-17 oz)

70 to 100 lbs                2 3/4 to 5 cups (23-40 oz)

* If your dog is pregnant, nursing, or is a puppy you may need to feed up to twice the recommended amount of food. Check with your vet if you have questions about your dog's particular needs.

Transitioning your dog to a new food

Whenever you change your dog’s food you have to transition SLOWLY. Transitioning too quickly can lead to stomach upset and stool changes. To gradually get your dog accustomed to the new food replace increasing amounts of the old food with the new food. The transition can take a couple of weeks. You may also want to heat the food a little bit. Some dogs can’t tolerate cold foods.

Desserts & Snacks that CAN clean Teeth

A great snack after each meal is a raw carrot. It provides vitamins and enzymes, is low in calories and has the bonus of cleaning your dogs teeth. Raw bones are also great for cleaning teeth and providing calcium (Raw bones are perishable. Do not let your dog chew on one for longer than one day) and minerals. We also add kelp powder and natural soy lecithin for a nutritional boost.

Other Feeding Tips

To increase your dog's ability to maintain a healthy immune system try adding a spoonful (or two) of plain organic yogurt to their morning meal. Your dog will LOVE it!

Our Story

MaddieGirl dog food was originally created for my dog, Maddie, during the massive Menu Foods recall in 2007. Maddie was just a little puppy at the time and eating what I thought was a premium dry puppy food. It turns out that it was on the list of foods made by Menu Foods. I threw out that bag of food and immediately began to cook for her. I no longer trusted any of the large commercial dog food brands.

Because Maddie was just a puppy, I was very concerned about giving her a diet that would provide everything she needed to grow. So, I began to read everything I could and to interview vets about dog nutrition. I also started reading veterinary nutrition text books. The main one being the Small Animal Clinical Nutrition written by Hand, Thatcher, Remillard, and Roudebush. Once I had what I thought was a good formula I worked with a laboratory in San Francisco to run a chemical analysis to ensure that I was meeting AAFCO standards. It took a few iterations, but I got there in the end and Maddie had a food that she loved and that I knew was good for her.

After a while friends noticed Maddie's great coat and physique and they began to ask me what I was feeding her. Then I got asked if I would cook some food for their dogs. So I created MaddieGirl Organic Dog Food.

Over the years, organic dog food and even cooking for your dog has gained momentum within the pet world, which is fantastic for our four-legged buddies. There was a time when people thought I was crazy feeding my dog grass-fed organic ground beef! However, now it seems that even commercial pet food companies are starting to realize that our pets need real food, just like us. So the next time you purchase food for your dog, give us a try, or at least turn the bag over and look at what you really are putting in your dog's bowl. Would you want to eat it? If not, maybe your dog shouldn't either.

MaddieGirl Organic Dog Food is a licensed Pet Food Processor in the states of California and Washington.
