Yes, our products are suitable, we would recommend the Mighty Mix Frozen Concentrate because it contains salmon and a lower percentage of cereal.
Yes, all Mighty Mix products contain by-products which are rich in natural vitamins and minerals essential to the dog’s nutritional requirements.
The by-products we use are sourced from New Zealand processing plants that solely process human consumption meats. This means that the animals for slaughter have to be healthy and free from medications – and they need to have passed veterinary checks prior to slaughter. Our meat sources are also specific to only the animals listed on our packaging.
Carbohydrates are commonly found in most everyday foods such as vegetables, grains and cereals. As wholegrain cereals are an ingredient in our products they are not carbohydrate free but the Mighty Mix Frozen Concentrate is very low in carbohydrates due to the lower cereal addition rate.
We do not use cereals as a bulking agent or ‘filler’; instead we use the wholegrain for the goodness it can provide. The outer grain is a natural source of Vitamin B, the fibre helps condition the bowel, which helps to keep your dog healthy. The inner part of the cereal is a natural source of Vitamin E.
If you are looking for a low cereal option the Mighty Mix Frozen Concentrate contains less than 13% wholegrain cereal which is very low compared to most dry commercial dog foods. When combined with salmon, green-lipped mussel and kelp, which are all great for skin irritations, we find that many dogs with allergies do well on this product.
We use the term ‘concentrate’ to show that the product does not contain any fillers or bulkers and is 100% nutritional. It is also used in terms of the whole food extracts used, which mean a small amount contains concentrated nutrients.
The Mighty Mix Frozen Concentrate is a raw product, meaning it has not been through a cooking process, however some ingredients used have been cooked.
We date stamp the product on the day of manufacture and guarantee a 12 month shelf life. We would recommend that the product is consumed prior to that date.
Your dog is possibly not feeling well. This is a normal process. They do it deliberately to make themselves sick.
Meats destined for human consumption.
Fat is the most digestible form of energy for dogs which is why Mighty Mix Dog Food uses fat as the main source of energy for the Mighty Mix Frozen Concentrate– a high energy supplement feed. Fat in the Mighty Mix Frozen Concentrate is from meat sources and makes up on average 53% of the as-fed product.
The Mighty Mix Frozen Concentrate product is frozen because this is the best way to keep the raw meats and fish fresh. While you can thaw the product prior to feeding, you do not need to. Your dog should have no problems with eating the product frozen. We do not cook, nor recommend cooking, the product as this would reduce the vitamin and mineral levels.
You can warm or thaw the Mighty Mix Frozen Concentrate but we don’t recommend cooking it as it will destroy the vitamins in the product. Be careful when warming or thawing the product as it contains raw meats and fish which can go off easily thus in warmer climates it is advisable to only leave it out for a maximum of 2 hours. The product can also be fed direct from your freezer in an unthawed state.
While onions and garlic are from the same ‘family’ the levels of the toxin found in garlic is minute and is therefore not toxic to dogs. Garlic is traditionally known as a blood purifier and an immune stimulant that all animals can benefit from. Onions have a very high toxicity level and you should never feed it to your pets.
All Mighty Mix Dog Food products contain freeze dried green-lipped mussels which is high in glucosamine and useful for the treatment of arthritis, poor joint mobility, skin inflammation, connective tissue repair, cartilage maintenance and impact related injuries, however the shells of the mussels are not included.
The glucosamine levels in their normal diet should be enough for your dog at any life stage, however, you will know the condition of your dog so if you feel his or her condition would benefit from a supplement you could try our Mighty Mix Mussel Tonic.
Mighty Mix products are not gluten free as they contain wholegrain cereal. The outer grain fibre of the cereal is a natural source of vitamin B. The very inner kernel of the mixed cereal is a natural source of vitamin E which is a gluten product. If you are looking for a low cereal product then you could try the Mighty Mix Frozen Concentrate.
The Mighty Mix Frozen Concentrate is high in energy so will help your dog gain some more weight, however to maintain his weight and muscles, we would alternate with the Mighty Mix Dog Food Nourish Biscuit which is higher in protein and lower in energy. Once his weight is at a good level, feed the Mighty Mix Nourish Biscuit only. To help with his hip/joint problems you could also try the Mighty Mix Mussel Tonic.
The meat products we use are sourced only from New Zealand processing plants that solely process human consumption meats. This means that the animals for slaughter have to be healthy and free from medications – and they need to have passed veterinary checks prior to slaughter. However, this does not mean that they are fit for human consumption and we do not recommend that you eat them.
Mighty Mix Frozen Concentrate is ideal for this situation. We recommend you keep your dog off any dry food, including biscuits.
We use a blending process similar to making sausages. When you open up a raw sausage it looks all white, yet you know it contains meat. We use the same blending process to keep firm the soft meats and salmon to produce the white pallets sometimes found in Mighty Mix Frozen Concentrate.
The Mighty Mix Nourish Biscuit is our most concentrated biscuit formula. It is specially designed for when your dog needs a pick me up. The extra micro-nutrients in Nourish Dog Biscuits help provide a boost to your dog's nutrition. It is great for dogs who have trouble maintaining their weight, are trying to lose weight, recovering from illness or surgery, pregnant or lactating dogs, puppies, and elderly dogs. However, your dog does not necessarily need this higher level of nutrients all of the time and the average dog should thrive on the Family Biscuit or Large Dog Biscuit.
We generally find that the problem is simply over feeding, as the Frozen Concentrate is a highly concentrated feed. Dogs are individuals - they come in all shapes and sizes e.g. fat or thin, hungry or picky. Each dog has their own needs and our feeding guides are only a starting point to work from.
Something that is worth a go is that if you are currently feeding the product in a thawed state then try feeding it frozen, or if you are feeding the product frozen then try feeding it thawed.
Also check how you are storing the Mighty Mix Frozen Concentrate. If the product has been left to defrost or if is not stored correctly the product may have gone off, which could be a reason for the dog not eating it.
We do not add any artificial preservatives in the Mighty Mix process, and to the best of our knowledge neither do any of our ingredient suppliers. The Mighty Mix Dog Biscuits do contain a natural antioxidant preservative.
The prices on the website are the recommended Franchisee prices, however, we cannot legally set their prices. Retail outlets also sometimes add their own mark-up to these prices. We do not have the details for each retail outlet’s prices as each store may be different. To be sure of the price it pays to check before ordering. Find your local Mighty Mix Franchisee to see prices in your area.
We recommend the Mighty Mix Nourish Dog Biscuit for feeding puppies as it is our most concentrated formula. Another option is to feed a well-balanced raw and dry food diet by feeding Mighty Mix Frozen Concentrate combined with the Nourish Dog Biscuits or try Mighty Mix Dog Roll, combined with Mighty Mix Nourish Dog Biscuits.
It is probably just a case of overfeeding due to the concentrated formula or a change of diet. Try cutting their food back a bit.
We recommended keeping Mighty Mix Biscuits out of direct sunlight and in a cool, dry environment.
The Frozen Concentrate must be stored in the freezer.
The Mighty Mix Dog Roll must be stored in the freezer until such time that you wish to starting using it. Once thawed, the dog roll must be kept refrigerated where it will last for up to 14 days.
Mighty Mix Mussel Tonic is made purely from freeze dried green-lipped mussels and is designed to aid in joint mobility and increase the immune system.There are no fillers or carriers contained within this product.
There is a suggested feeding guide with each product and on the product packaging. Each dog and each situation, of course, is different. The dog will let you know if they are eating right by either leaving food in their bowl or by losing or gaining weight. If your dog has a problem with overeating then you should monitor their feeding more carefully. When feeding puppies - they should be allowed to self-feed, within reason. What that means is that puppies should have as much as they want in about ten minutes each feeding. If the puppy eats all you gave it in a couple of minutes give more food inside that ten-minute feed time. If the puppy leaves any after ten minutes, remove the food and give them a little less at the next feed time. If the puppy is a gulper, you may need to feed them more often but a lower quantity in each feed. Puppies can get into trouble if they gorge themselves. Don't free feed by leaving food down all the time.
