Lewis Labs
Dog Formula®


Lewis Labs Dog Formula® provides 100% of all vitamins, minerals and nutrients a dog needs.  It also contain a myriad of other important factors which lead to healthy skin and coat, stamina, muscle tone, alertness and resistance to disease.

Advertising claims notwithstanding, no commercial pet food available is a “complete” diet.  It is a “by-product” business and a highly profitable one.  What’s wrong with highly advertised commercial pet foods? Primarily, it is the low quality of the ingredients from which they are made. The food and drug administration has no ingredient standards for pet foods. Consequently, most of the meat, poultry and by-products used are rejects that do not meet the wholesomeness standards of the United States Department of Agriculture for human consumption. These rejects include dead, dying, diseased and disabled animals, as well as lungs, spleens, gullets, intestines as well as bruised or emaciated muscle tissue.

The majority of canned products are 78% moisture. That's water and you're paying a high price for it.  The dry products consist primarily of low cost, low quality grain protein.  While the quantity of protein may be adequate, the quality of protein is definitely not.  The result is a pet that is overfed and undernourished.

Most commercial pet foods are deficient in many of the most essential amino acids (proteins). Further, the animal fat most often used for the fat content is beef tallow, a highly saturated fat which is difficult for your pet to digest and which must be preserved by a chemical antioxidant to prevent it from going rancid. 

Humans have a varied diet and a lot of choices.  You get fresh vegetables, meat and fruit.  The pet food you give to your pet is his breakfast, lunch and dinner.  It is 100% processed. Even if you supplement with table scraps, that’s people food and does not take into account the special nutritional needs of the dog.

People and dogs require a regular dietary supply of vitamins, minerals and essential amino acids to stay healthy or even to survive, for that matter.  However, the amount and importance of specific essential nutrients varies considerably.  For years, Lewis Laboratories has made complete, balanced nutritional supplements for people.  Lewis Labs Brewer’s Yeast Flakes®, Lewis Labs Staminex® and Lewis Labs RDA® are just three of them and they are leaders in the nutritional field.  However, dogs are just as different from each other as they are from people. That is why Lewis Laboratories has made a product that is scientifically formulated to provide the specific nutritional requirements necessary. Lewis Labs Dog Formula® is a powder and a small amount added to your pet’s daily ration makes up for any nutritional deficiencies that may exist in the way of vitamins, minerals, protein, fat and other essentials.

People need only eight essential amino acids.  Dogs require ten. Among these, dogs need a very special supply of methionine and triptophane, which are absent in most commercial dog foods. With these and other essential amino acids all in proper balance, Lewis Labs Dog Formula® also provides digestive enzymes to assist the dog in metabolizing the rest of his ration. Most important, Lewis Labs Dog Formula® contains 40% high quality protein which is readily digestible.

A dog also has a great need for fat, but not just any fat.  The fat in Lewis Labs Dog Formula® is a high quality, unsaturated oil that is rich in linoleic acid which contributes to a rich, glossy coat. These natural oils require no artificial preservatives because they have their own built-in antioxidants which are Vitamin E fractions. There are so many exceptional aspects to Lewis Labs Dog Formula® it would require pages even to list them. The main point is Lewis Labs Dog Formula® provides 100% of all the vitamins, minerals and other nutrients recognized by the National Academy of Science Subcommittee on Dog Nutrition, as well as other important factors which lead to healthy skin and coat, stamina, muscle tone, alertness and resistance to disease.            

Lewis Labs Dog Formula is available in 16 oz. (454 grams) containers and is sold by weight, not volume.  Some settling may occur.
