OUR FOODS

HOW ARE YODOGGO RECIPES FORMULATED?

 

All YoDoggo foods are designed by world renowned expert canine diet formulators. All our formulations are balanced and complete to meet or exceed international canine nutritional standards set by AAFCO and FEDIAF for All Life Stages.

 

HOW ARE YODOGGO FOODS MADE?

 

YoDoggo foods use 100% human grade ingredients sourced from Singapore Food Authority (SFA) approved vendors. The ingredients are gently cooked at a temperature of 80°C to kill all harmful pathogens and retain optimal nutrition. Once cooked, the foods are freeze dried and vacuum packed to retain their original freshness.

 

ARE YODOGGO FOODS RAW?

 

No, all YoDoggo foods are gently cooked at 80°C to kill all harmful pathogens like Salmonella, E.Coli and maintain optimum nutrition.

 

WHAT IS FREEZE DRYING? WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF FREEZE DRYING?

 

Freeze drying is the process of preserving food by extracting almost all the moisture from food. The food is then frozen in a vacuum chamber and the water in the food is extracted through a process of sublimation. Unlike kibbles, canned and dehydrated foods, there is no application of high heat and freeze drying preserves almost all the nutrition in the original food.

 

To consume freeze dried food, just add hot water and you get the original fresh food – same nutrition, same taste, same texture and same smell.

 

Freeze dried foods do not need to be frozen or stored in the fridge. Just store in an airtight container. 

 

DO I NEED TO FEED MY DOG AN ADDITIONAL SUPPLEMENT?

 

No, YoDoggo meals have all the nutrients your dog needs. You do not need to feed your dog any additional supplements.

 

IS YODOGGO SUITABLE FOR PUPPIES?

 

Yes, YoDoggo foods are great for puppies. Puppies need their portions increased as they grow, we check with you every month and increase the quantities accordingly.

 

IS YODOGGO SUITABLE FOR SENIOR DOGS?

 

Yes, senior dogs do very well on YoDoggo. YoDoggo foods are highly nutritious and easily digestible. Food quantities decrease as your dog enters his senior years, we work with you to make the suitable adjustments in the daily feed quantities.

 

CAN YOU CHANGE THE INGREDIENTS OR CUSTOMISE THE RECIPES FOR ME?

 

No, all our foods are carefully crafted to be balanced and complete. We currently do not offer customised recipes.

 

WHY CAN’T I JUST MAKE DOG FOOD AT HOME?

 

Many well-intentioned dog owners cook for their pups, and we’re excited when people understand the benefits of a fresh food diet for dogs. That said, it’s extremely difficult to ensure without proper testing that the food you’re cooking at home meets the nutritional requirements for healthy dogs. Too few or too many nutrients can result in serious complications. That’s why YoDoggo is formulated by nutritionists – so that you can sleep easy, knowing your doggo is getting exactly what they need.

 

WHAT IF MY DOG HAS A MEDICAL CONDITION LIKE DIABETES, CANCER, RENAL DISEASE, LIVER DISEASE ETC.?

 

YoDoggo foods are currently not prescription diets. 

 

However, YoDoggo foods are High Protein, Balanced Fats and Low Carb formulations with high quality nutrition. Most dogs with medical conditions do very well on our foods. We encourage you to discuss a balanced fresh food option for your dog with your vet.

 

FEEDING & USAGE

HOW MUCH DO I FEED MY DOGGO?

 

We calculate your dog’s daily calorie needs based on your dog’s profile (age, weight, breed, activity levels and weight goals) and recommend the amount of food to be fed per day, in grams. You can divide the daily amount of food into as many meals as per your preference. 

 

Certain dogs can metabolise faster or slower, so some plans may need further adjusting.

 

HOW DO I FEED YODOGGO FOOD?

 

Feeding YoDoggo freeze dried fresh foods is simple, just follow the following steps:

 

Step 1: Put the recommended quantity of food in a bowl.

 

Step 2: Add an equal amount of boiling water to the bowl.

 

Step 3: let it cool (approximately 10 -15 mins). 

 

Step 4: Mix the food and feed.

 

HOW DO I STORE YODOGGO FOODS? DO I NEED TO FREEZE OR REFRIGERATE YODOGGO FOODS?

 

Once the vacuum pack is opened, store in an airtight container or in a ziplock bag. 

 

No, you do not need to store YoDoggo foods in the Fridge or a Freezer.

 

DO I NEED TO COOK YODOGGO FOODS?

 

No, you do not need to cook YoDoggo foods. YoDoggo foods are cooked. Just rehydrate with boiling water, wait for the water to cool (10-15 mins) and feed.

 

INGREDIENTS & NUTRITION

WHAT INGREDIENTS DO YOU USE?

 

We use 100% human grade ingredients in all our recipes. All our ingredients are sourced from SFA approved suppliers. You literally can eat your dog food.

 

WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY BALANCED AND COMPLETE?

 

All YoDoggo foods meet or exceed standards set by both AAFCO and FEDIAF dog food nutrient profiles for All Life Stages. This means YoDoggo foods have all the nutrients your dog needs, in the exact proportions needed to live long and healthy lives.

 

DO I NEED TO FEED MY DOG AN ADDITIONAL SUPPLEMENT?

 

No, YoDoggo foods have all the nutrients your dog needs. You do not need to feed your dog any additional supplements. We also highly recommend that any additional supplements should be fed only under veterinary supervision.

 

WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY ‘HUMAN GRADE’?

 

Our ingredients are thoughtfully sourced from trusted vendors and human food suppliers in Singapore. We use only fresh, whole-food ingredients that meet SFA standards for human consumption. This means we never use feed-grade ingredients, meat meals, or anything artificial, ensuring your dog is getting only the highest quality, safest nutrients available. Everything we put in our food has a purpose for nourishing your pup and is highly digestible.

 

TRANSITIONING

HOW DOES THE TRANSITION PLAN WORK?

 

Follow the 15 day YoDoggo transition plan, designed for dogs with a similar profile to your dog.

 

All dogs are different, some dogs need more time for their tummies to adjust to the new diet. A transition period of 4 weeks does happen in some cases. The YoDoggo team will work with you to help you adjust the transition plan to help your dog to transition as smoothly as possible. 

 

WHAT DOES THE TRANSITION MONTH MEAL PLAN INCLUDE?

 

When you decide to transition your doggo to a YoDoggo meal, you can choose the YoDoggo first-month transition plan (highly recommended). 

 

If you opt for the transition plan, the first month’s subscription would include a 15-day transition plan. Moreover, you also get full meals for 15 days.

 

If you think your doggo does not need a transition plan, you can opt out of the 15-day transition plan. In which case, the meal plan would include a 30-day quantity of full meals.

 

WHAT IS THE 15-DAY YODOGGO TRANSITION PLAN?

 

The 15-day YoDoggo transition plan has been created to slowly introduce the YoDoggo meals to your dog while gradually weaning your pet off the old food.

 

The 15-day transition plan consists of custom daily meal packets for the first 15 days. It also includes specific instructions on gradually reducing quantities of the old food.

 

WHY DO I PAY LESS IN THE FIRST MONTH WHEN I OPT FOR THE 15-DAY TRANSITION PLAN?

 

Simply put, during the 15-day transition plan, your doggo eats less of YoDoggo meals. Our monthly meal plan’s price is based on the individualized quantity your dog needs – nothing more, nothing less. 

 

WHAT’S NORMAL DURING THE TRANSITION PHASE?

 

It’s all in the poop – The short-term effects on the poop during transition can look “worse” than normal. Poop in the first week can be looser than normal. If the poop is very loose, consider skipping a meal or reverting to the previous day’s portions. Your dog needs more time to adjust to the new food. While short-term diarrhoea should be nothing to worry about, keep an eye out for anything that indicates more serious digestive issues. In the long term, we find poops become smaller, less smelly with great consistency.

 

Vomiting during food transition – Few dogs may experience some vomiting, but it shouldn’t last for more than one or two rounds. 

 

WHAT’S NOT NORMAL DURING THE TRANSITION PHASE?

 

When it comes to poop

Transition aside, most dogs will have the occasional bout of diarrhoea. It’s also normal to see small amounts of mucus in your dog’s poop. Short-term diarrhoea is nothing to worry about. 

 

Keep an eye out for anything that indicates more serious digestive upsets.

Signs can include –  Diarrhoea that lasts for more than a few days, when accompanied by various other symptoms like lethargy, dehydration, loss of appetite, black stools, and consistently bloody stools. There are many possible causes of diarrhoea ranging from dietary indiscretion, infections, parasites or more serious conditions. You should stop the transition process and consult your vet immediately.

 

When it comes to vomit

The occasional vomiting happens in all dogs, also the occasional vomit during the transition phase is nothing to worry about. Keep an eye out for chronic vomiting that is yellow or greenish, vomit with blood or red in colour could indicate a serious condition. You should stop the transition process and consult your vet immediately. 

 

Regurgitated food looks like vomit but is not the same. Again occasional regurgitation of food is nothing to worry about. If there is frequent regurgitation – you should stop the transition process and consult your vet immediately.

 

Other adverse conditions

Do keep an eye out for other adverse conditions like food allergies, parasite infections, genetic disorders and various other digestive conditions.

 

WHY DO DOGS GO THROUGH A TRANSITION PHASE DURING A DIET CHANGE?

 

There is no scientific research that explains this. However, almost the entire veterinary community recommends a gradual change of diet. One explanation is that no two foods are the same, the pancreas and liver take some time to adjust and secrete the right quantities of digestive enzymes to digest the new food. Also, studies have shown a change in diet also includes a change in the gut biome of your dog. After a dietary change, changes in the gut biome can be seen within 10 days and it can take as long as a few months to stabilize. Transition times also depend on the age, condition, health and the degree of dietary change.

 

 

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO TRANSITION?

 

The health benefits of a fresh food high protein diet are widely recognized. However, the initial transition period can range from 1-6 weeks until your pet can exclusively consume a fresh high protein diet. The duration of this transition depends on a few factors, including:

 

– Sensitivity of your dog’s stomach

– Quality of the previous diet

– Age and health of the pet

 

We have observed that transitioning from a high carb diet to a fresh food high protein diet may require a longer adjustment period.

 

Introducing a nutritionally-dense fresh food high protein food can be a significant change for your dog’s stomach. So it’s important to proceed slowly.
