Why We Choose TLC Dog Food

TLC Whole Life Puppy is formulated with ingredients, including a balanced ratio of protein and fats and bio-appropriate (balanced) calcium & phosphorous levels to support your puppy's specific needs. This includes DHA from Salmon Oil for cognitive development and high quality protein for muscle growth while ensuring correct weight gain as your dog grows to adulthood.

TLC developed our Puppy formula for those dogs that require a little more protein and fat for additional weight gain compared to our All Life Stages Dog Food, and a more limited ingredient introductory diet to encourage easy digestion and stool firmness.

 

Healthier, Shinier Coat

TLC Puppy has the top ingredients for skin and coat health, including the best animal fats, omega-3 rich salmon oil and the Herbal pack of essential natural nutrients.

For healthy skin and coat, dogs need high quality nutrients, including animal fats and oils. TLC Whole Life Puppy Food includes chicken fat and Omega-3 rich salmon oil to nourish the skin and coat with essential oils. TLC also includes Flaxseed as an additional quality source of Omega-3 essential fatty acids.

In addition to helping to keep the skin and coat healthy, Omega-3 Fatty Acids help to maintain lower cholesterol levels for heart health. In addition to essential oil and fats, your puppy’s developing skin health needs the best quality and most digestible minerals. TLC Whole Life Puppy contains chelated minerals needed for skin and coat health. Chelated refers to the process of attaching the minerals to an amino acid, making them much easier to digest and absorb. Chelated minerals usually list as “proteinate” on ingredient lists.

 

Protection Against Allergies

TLC Whole Life Puppy does not contain any of the more common allergens such as corn, soy beans, wheat or beef. TLC is specially formulated to provide an allergy-free diet for your puppy.

Any protein source (lamb, beef, poultry, wheat, corn, etc.) can cause an allergy reaction if consumed by a sensitized dog. More allergic reactions will occur when beef or wheat products are fed as they have been in dog food longer. Lamb and rice are used by many veterinarians to feed to dogs that are sensitive to other meat sources.

TLC has omitted all of the common allergens from all its products, including TLC Whole Life Puppy. Our carbohydrates and proteins are specifically selected for their low allergy rating.

TLC Whole Life Puppy contains both Quinoa and Vitamin C for immune system health and stress protection. A healthy immune system can best manage any environmental allergens such as pollen and grass.

TLC Whole Life Puppy does not contain any artificial colors, flavors or preservatives, all of which are common allergens and should be avoided.

 

No By-Products, Corn, Wheat, Fillers, Artificial Flavors or Colors

TLC Whole Life Puppy contains no by-products, potato, corn, wheat, soy, fillers, artificial flavors or colors. No compromise!

TLC Whole Life uses only the very best ingredients in their most natural form, with no animal or plant by-products. TLC only uses ingredients that support beneficial nutrition, with no fillers or artificial flavors or colors. Color does nothing for the dog, and is added to competitor pet foods purely to attract the pet owner, not the dog itself – TLC never uses artificial colors.

TLC has omitted all of the common allergens from Whole Life Puppy Food, including corn and wheat. We also omit potato, a common pet food ingredient, due to its high glycemic rating contributing to insulin resistance, diabetes and obesity.

TLC offers a full 100% money back guarantee if you are for any reason unsatisfied with the food.

Probiotics & Prebiotics

Probiotics are dietary supplements containing beneficial bacteria, intended to help your puppy achieve a naturally occurring balance of bacteria, thus promoting digestive health. TLC Whole Life Puppy Food contains the four most important types of Probiotic beneficial bacteria:

  1. Enterococcus Faecium promotes bowel and colon health by helping to counter other toxic bacteria, including E coli.

  2. Lactobacillus Acidophilus inhabits the intestines to protect against unhealthy organisms. As this beneficial bacteria breaks down nutrients in the intestine, it produces lactic acid, and other compounds that make the environment hostile for toxic organisms.

  3. Lactobacillus Casei inhabits the mouth and intestines to protect against unhealthy organisms. Lactobacillus Casei may assist in the elimination of the negative H. Pylori bacteria, which may be responsible for stomach ulcers and other gastrointestinal ailments.

  4. Bifidobacterium Thermophilum is a genus of anaerobic bacteria and a form of probiotic (beneficial bacteria) that is thought to have health-promoting properties. Bifidobacteria are one of the major strains of bacteria that make up the gut flora.

Prebiotics are dietary supplements that the provide nutrients for the Probiotic beneficial bacteria. TLC Puppy contains Chicory Root Extract to provide ideal nutrition for the beneficial bacteria found in TLC. Chicory root contains the soluble fiber inulin, which feeds beneficial bacteria in the intestines. The prebiotics in TLC are non-digestible, allowing them to reach the intestine unaffected by the digestion process. When they reach the intestine, the prebiotics feed the beneficial bacteria, providing good digestive health. The reaching of prebiotics to the intestine in this unchanged form is referred to as the prebiotic effect.
