The future is now! The larvae of the black soldier fly contain the highest quality amino acids of our time. These are optimally digestible and bioavailable, especially for dogs.

For our Fresh Menu made from insect larvae, we exclusively use fresh ingredients of food grade quality in our in-house factory. The healthy larvae of the black soldier flies are slowly and gently cooked together with high-quality pea protein at low temperatures. Only after that do we add blanched sweet potatoes, carrots, peas, apples, and broccoli, as well as flaxseed oil, rosehip, algae lime, brewer's yeast, seaweed meal, thyme, and parsley to the cooked food. This ensures that both the flavor and nutrients are optimally preserved.

Our Fresh Menu made from insect larvae is particularly suitable for allergic dogs and is obtained in a particularly resource-friendly manner. In combination with fresh vegetables and fruits, we have created a balanced, complete menu for your dog. Even the most spoiled furry friends will be convinced by the fine nutty taste.

No high temperatures, no fillers, no artificial vitamin supplements, no extrusion, no sterilised cans. The result: Like home-cooked, healthy food with all the nutrients from the fresh original ingredients that tastes just as good as it looks. 100% natural and 0% artificial additives. Developed with vets and made with love. Quite simply the best food for your dog. The result is an unrivalled, healthy fresh meal for your dog. Just like home-cooked.

Cooked Black Soldier Fly (45%)
Insect larvae contain high-quality protein, a high proportion of unsaturated fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals such as copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, selenium, and zinc. They are therefore good sources of nutrients, nutritious, and healthy. And the high-quality amino acid composition of insect protein is particularly optimal for dogs and in some cases better than meat.



Pea Protein (25%)
Pea protein contains notably high amounts of arginine and lysine, as well as the amino acids leucine, isoleucine, and valine. As part of a balanced diet, this protein can support both muscle building and muscle maintenance.



Sweet Potatoes (7%)
According to the American non-profit organisation Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), sweet potatoes are considered to be the healthiest vegetable of all. The greatest benefits of sweet potatoes are their high content of phytochemicals, which protect against free radicals. They are a source of minerals and vitamins and contain a lot of high-quality fibre.



Carrots (7%)
In addition to energy, fibre and low calories, carrots are healthy because they are an excellent source of vitamins and minerals. Vitamin A and biotin are particularly worth mentioning here. Carrots are rich in beta-carotene, which is converted into vitamin A in the body.



Peas (6%)
Peas contain many vitamins. In addition to beta-carotene, peas are particularly rich in B vitamins and also contain vitamin C. Peas also score highly in terms of minerals: Magnesium, iron, calcium and zinc make them a particularly healthy vegetable side dish.



Apples (4%)
Apples are suitable for a healthy diet because they contain many vitamins, minerals and trace elements such as potassium, calcium, B vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin E, folic acid, pectins and polyphenols.



Broccoli (3%)
Broccoli contains some vitamins in particularly high concentrations: vitamin C, vitamin K and beta-carotene. Broccoli is also much better than many other vegetables when it comes to minerals. For example, broccoli provides significant amounts of calcium, iron and copper.



Linseed Oil (1.9%)
Linseed oil contains a high proportion of unsaturated fatty acids such as omega-3 or linoleic acid. According to scientific studies, linseed oil can have a preventative and soothing effect on diseases such as diabetes, arthrosis and high cholesterol levels. However, the actual effects have not yet been sufficiently proven.



Rosehip (0.4%)
In addition to vitamin C, rosehips also contain numerous other ingredients that have a positive effect on health. These include: Fruit acids, essential oils, pectins, tannins, silicic acid, the antioxidants lycopene and flavonoids, the vitamins provitamin A, vitamin B1 and B2 as well as vitamin E, the minerals zinc, copper, sodium, phosphorus, iron, calcium and magnesium.



Algae Lime (0.4%)
Algae lime consists of deposits of red algae. It contains mainly calcium carbonate, as well as magnesium carbonate and trace elements (boron, iodine, silicic acid) and thus prevents a deficiency of minerals and trace elements. The high calcium content supports the stability of bones and teeth and balances out the excess phosphorus from meat feeding, which can otherwise lead to kidney problems.



Brewer's Yeast (0.1%)
Brewer's yeast contains lots of vitamins and minerals and is also a good source of protein. It also stimulates the metabolism and helps to keep blood sugar levels constant.



Seaweed Powder (0.1%)
Seaweed meal contains many minerals such as zinc and carotenoids which support the skin metabolism and the pigmentation of the coat, nose and paw pads. The amino acid lysine it contains optimises feed conversion; cellulose and mannitol support digestion.



Thyme (0.1%)
Thyme is ideal for supporting the natural function of the respiratory tract. For example, it is a fine herb for the winter months when your furry friend switches back and forth between wet and cold weather outside and dry heating air inside. Thyme also has anti-inflammatory and digestive properties, and it can be beneficial in cases of worm infestations, diarrhea, or bloating.



Parsley (0.1%)
Due to its high vitamin C content, parsley is one of the most valuable herbs for dogs. It helps the kidneys process fluids and supports the bladder area with its diuretic effect.

What exactly is gently cooked food? Quite simply, it's better food for your dog! Our cooked menus are all made with high-quality, fresh ingredients sourced from the food industry: pure muscle meat and healthy offal, fresh vegetables and fruits, selected oils and herbs, along with a digestible, healthy source of carbohydrates (rice or sweet potato). We carefully balance these ingredients to create complete meals for a species-appropriate, varied, and easily digestible diet for your dog.

We consistently avoid artificial additives, preservatives, flavour enhancers, and attractants. Fresh meat and offal are gently cooked at 90°C, while vegetables and fruits are only blanched to preserve heat-sensitive natural minerals and vitamins.

High-quality oils and natural ingredients like rosehip powder, seaweed meal, brewer's yeast, and algae lime are added to the menu in the final step. Fidelis Fresh Menus are unique and simply put, "Better Food" for your dog! We cook for your dog just like you would at home.

Fidelis Fresh Menus are thus absolutely unique and simply put: "Better Food" for your dog! We cook for your dog just like you would at home.

Disadvantages of other types of food

What are the disadvantages of other types of dog food compared to the cooked fresh menus from Fidelis?

Extruded/Cold-Pressed Dry Food::
Almost always made with a significant amount of grains, animal meals, and hardened fats. Fresh ingredients like meat, offal, and vegetables are used in very small quantities or not at all. The extrusion or cold pressing process heats the product to very high temperatures, destroying most remaining nutrients and minerals.

- Vitamins and minerals are artificially added.
- Dry food often contains preservatives and attractants.

Wet Food/Canned Food::
Most manufacturers use low-quality meat and slaughter by-products, plant by-products, and artificial additives for can production. Fresh ingredients like meat, offal, and vegetables are used in very small quantities or not at all. The sterilization process in autoclaves during canning heats the food to a temperature of 110–140°C, resulting in the loss of a large portion of nutrients and minerals.

-Vitamins and minerals are artificially added.
-Canned food often contains preservatives and attractants.

B.A.R.F. (Biologically Appropriate Raw Food):
The concept of feeding dogs biologically appropriate raw food, including meat, offal, vegetables, and fruits, has merit. However, raw, untreated B.A.R.F. products can be a significant problem. They are often contaminated with a high number of germs and bacteria, which can lead to intolerance or digestive difficulties for the dog and pose serious health risks for the owner during thawing and preparation. Enterobacteria and E. coli bacteria can cause severe health problems in both dogs and humans. The protein content in B.A.R.F. menus is often too high, leading to health problems in many dogs.

Daily Feeding Guide

This guide provides a starting point for the amount of food to feed your dog daily.

Puppies up to 8 months: approximately 4% of body weight
Dogs up to 15 kg: approximately 2-3% of body weight
Dogs over 15 kg: approximately 2-2.5% of body weight

Example: A 20 kg dog with a recommended daily allowance of 2% would need 400g of food per day (20 kg * 2% = 400g).

Please Note:
These are guidelines for healthy, active, non-neutered dogs. Individual needs may vary by up to 50% based on age, breed, or activity level.
Adjust the amount of food based on your dog's individual needs to maintain a healthy weight.

Transitioning to Fidelis

Fidelis recommends switching your dog's food immediately. Skip one meal (preferably in the evening) and start with our food at the next meal. Feed a single flavour for the first 14 days to allow your dog's stomach to adjust. After two weeks, you can alternate between different flavours.

Delivery & Storage

Our fresh menus are delivered frozen and have a shelf life of approximately 6 months when frozen. In the refrigerator, unopened menus can be stored for about 5-7 days. We recommend using opened menus within 2-3 days.
