Adult Weight-Loss Dog Food offers robust nutrition with ample nutrients to put the
pep back in your pup!
For adult dogs only.
Protein is essential for all bodily functions, including those of the brain, heart,
muscles, skin, skeleton and others. This healthy dog food contains at least 28.5%
Chicken meal is the first ingredient in this natural dog food recipe. Some foods
contain whole chicken or chicken parts, which naturally contain a fair amount of
water. We use chicken meal because most of the water has been removed, making it
a concentrated source of protein. This means that there is a greater “protein content”
in one pound of chicken meal versus one pound of whole chicken or chicken parts.
Eggs are considered a complete protein source, providing essential amino acids,
vitamins and minerals. Eggs also contain healthy fats, such as omega-6 for healthy
skin and a glossy coat.
Our top-quality fish meal is made by drying the freshest catfish at a low temperature,
creating a concentrated, highly digestible protein source. In addition to being
an excellent source of protein, catfish meal provides natural DHA and EPA, the most
important omega-3 fatty acids.
Canines naturally produce antioxidants, but it’s a limited amount. That is why we
cannot emphasize enough the importance of antioxidants. This healthy dog food contains
an antioxidant system including guaranteed amounts of vitamins A, C and E.
We believe the primary fat source in dog food should be animal-based because canines
derive significant nutrition from these fats. While vegetable oils may sound healthier,
dogs actually need the specific nutrients found in animal fats that are not available
in vegetable sources. Additionally, there’s great variation in the quality of animal
fats, so be sure to verify that the source is species-specific and not generic (like
“chicken fat”, not “animal fat”).
Omega 3 Fatty Acids
The benefits of essential fatty acids are well known, as omega-3s are some of the
most extensively researched, naturally occurring nutritional ingredients in the
world. The guaranteed amount of omega-3s in our premium kibble helps support healthy
skin, shiny coats and overall wellness.
Other Healthy Fat
Our dog food also contains flaxseed meal and eggs, which are excellent sources of
Whole grains contain protein, fiber, B vitamins, iron, zinc and other minerals.
They also provide the kind of carbohydrates that deliver sustained energy to your
dog. We include the natural goodness of Ground Brown Rice and Oat Groats in our
Life’s Abundance dog.
Ground Brown Rice
Ground brown rice is the entire grain with only the inedible outer husk removed.
This whole grain contains seven minerals and five B vitamins.
Oat groats are whole oats that have been cleaned, toasted, hulled and cleaned again.
Amazingly, they retain nearly all of their original nutrients after this process.
Oat groats also contain seven minerals and five B vitamins.
OTHER KEY INGREDIENTS
Prebiotics are non-digestible food ingredients that stimulate the growth of good
bacteria in the digestive system. This nourishing formula contains the prebiotic
Probiotics are beneficial bacteria and help support healthy immune and digestive
systems. Unlike other pet food companies, we guarantee the amount of four different
health-promoting probiotics in our dog food.
Brewer’s Dried Yeast
Brewer’s dried yeast is loaded with digestible protein, features an excellent amino
acid balance and contains natural vitamins and minerals.
Beet Pulp (Sugar Removed)
Fiber is vital for maintaining a healthy intestinal tract and proper nutrient absorption.
We use beet pulp, which is fiber from the gray sugar beet, but with the sugar content
removed. Many studies have demonstrated that beet pulp performs better than many
other types of fiber.

The exact amount of food needed for your dog will vary according to age, temperament,
activity level and environment. Start by feeding the recommended amount based on
your dog’s actual weight, not the desired weight. These feeding amounts are guidelines
and may be adjusted (increased or decreased) to achieve your goal. Weight loss should
not exceed 1% of your dog’s total body weight weekly, unless recommended by your
veterinarian. (For example, if your dog weighs 50 pounds, a 1% weight loss would
be ½ pound.) Once you decide on a feeding amount, we suggest you divide that amount
into two to four small meals and feed over the course of a day. When switching to
Life’s Abundance Weight-Loss Formula For Adult Dogs, gradually feed less of your
previous food and more Life’s Abundance Weight-Loss Formula For Adult Dogs over
a one-week period to complete the transition.
For a successful weight-loss program, we recommend that you do the following: weigh
your dog; determine an appropriate weight-loss goal; feed the appropriate amount
of weight-loss food; make adjustments periodically according to changes in your
dog’s weight; if at all possible, make sure your dog exercises daily unless contraindicated
by your veterinarian; refrain from feeding table scraps and high-calorie treats;
keep a journal of your dog’s weight-loss progress.
Dear Dr. Jane Bicks and company,
I just wanted to tell you of the transformation of my dog. We decided to switch
after being convinced by my brother who had recently adopted a boxer and wanted
the best food for his puppy. So, we decided to order a med size bag (of Life's Abundance
Premium Health Food for Puppies & Adult Dogs) and see how it went. He definitely
liked the food and even in the transition there wasn't any diarrhea or any potty
problems. After about a week, you could see a difference in his coat. What was once
dull and lack luster, had a sheen and a softness that just made you want to pet!!
Then the pads of his feet began to change...softer, almost as if someone had put
lotion on them! The shedding stopped! So did the itching!! Thank you all for all
of your hard work and efforts to make a dog food that is healthy for peoples' animals.
I joke that my dogs probably eat better than I do!! Maybe you could get into health
foods for people too!

Hi Dr. Bicks,
I wanted to let you know that since putting our 2... 12-yr-old labs on LA (Life's
Abundance Premium Health Food for Puppies & Adult Dogs) 2 years ago, they are doing
fabulous! I have never seem them look and feel so good! Their energy levels, coats,
and overall health are great. They look and act younger now than they did years
ago. The food and supplements are fantastic. Just wanted to let you know that!

Hello, I just wanted to comment on your dog food (Life's Abundance Premium Health
Food for Puppies & Adult Dogs)! Years ago, my sister was a distributor of this food,
well she had to quit. I had forgotten about your products until I was researching
for a better and safer product for my little "girls" (Boston Terrier's) because
of the awful poisoning of the dog foods...so I came across your website, once again.
I have to say, I am sooo excited from seeing and being a witness to what ever ingredients
you have in there, it has made my oldest BT act like a pup again. She has always
been "lathargic, lazy, kick-back, passive" until I started feeding her your dog
food! We could see the difference in as little as 2 days! I was totally impressed!
I was sooo impressed with the results, I turned one of my friends on to it, so now
she is buying it for her BT...her terrier absolutely loves it too! So anyways, THANK
YOU for sacrificing many long hours into making this a HEALTHY food for our little
girls! I pray that God continues to bless your business with success!

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I just ordered my second bag of Life's Abundance
(Premium Health Food for Puppies & Adult Dogs) and feel such a great relief from
worrying about what food is the best for my beautiful labs. The recall scared me
to death and because of it I researched all dog food to find the best. Life's Abundance
is the best, my dogs look better and feel better. My five year old is running around
like he is two again. And his eyes are not running anymore and he isn't rubbing
his face and the rug anymore. He would itch so much he rubbed his face till it bled.
But not anymore. I have great confidence in the food I feed them now, and they are
so much happier and healthier. Thank you so very much for your great product and
for caring about our pets and my peace of mind.

Just wanted to let you know that even though I've only purchased Life's Abundance
(Premium Health Food for Puppies & Adult Dogs) a few weeks ago, my dogs have shown
a remarkable improvement! No more allergies! I guess this is one good thing that
came about from the recent pet food recall! Thank you so much for helping to improve
the lifespan of my pets!
