Riverbend<sup>™</sup> - Whitefish Meal & Potato Formula Dog Food

Premium Quality

Keeping with the current, schools of fish make their daily feeding migration around the riverbend in search of the ocean. Fishermen take quick action during this migration, catching a bounty of fish fresh from the ocean. Your dog instinctually craves animal protein, which is why we included premium quality whitefish meal in this unique recipe. Lean meat protein combined with wholesome vegetables and fruits and essential vitamins and chelated minerals make Meridian™ Riverbend™ Whitefish Meal and Potato Formula a nutritious and tasty meal for your dog, promoting optimal overall health.


No Nonsense

Guaranteed levels of antioxidant nutrients such as Vitamin E and Vitamin C, blended with nutrient-rich vegetables and fruits, help support a healthy immune system. Fibers from potatoes, peas, chickpeas, sweet potatoes, apples, blueberries, cranberries, carrots and spinach, along with our highly controlled cooking process, support excellent digestion and nutrient absorption. This unique recipe is scientifically formulated without the use of by-products, using only the best ingredients, to give your dog a no-nonsense meal every time.


The Meal Deal

Real whitefish meal is the primary ingredient in our Meridian™ Riverbend™ formula. Whitefish meal provides more meat protein and roughly 4-5 times the amount of nutrients as the same amount of whitefish. The reason for this is that whitefish is approximately 70% water, whereas, dried whitefish meal is only about 5% water. 100 lbs. of whitefish meal provides 62 lbs. of high-quality protein while 100 lbs. of whitefish provides only 10-15 lbs. of protein.

Taking care of your dog’s overall health starts by feeding him properly. We suggest using this chart as a guide. Adjust amounts accordingly over time. Please remember these portions are averages and will vary according to age, activity, size and temperament of your adult dog. Pregnant and lactating female dogs will require two to three times as much food as adult feeding guidelines shown. Puppies start to eat solid foods at three to four weeks of age and should have free access to solid food from this time until weaning. You may keep Meridian™ Riverbend™ Whitefish Meal and Potato Formula before your puppy at all times; most puppies will satisfy their nutritional needs as their appetite dictates. When switching to a new food, gradually increase the new food and decrease the old food over a 7 to 10-day period of time until your pet is completely eating Meridian™ Riverbend™.
