Our delicious pork menu is a special menu. It contains not only fresh meat from the local farm, but also fresh pig's ears, which dogs love so much. A menu for real gourmets and for dogs with a high energy and protein requirement.

We have chosen buckwheat, a pseudo-cereal, as our source of carbohydrates. Buckwheat is particularly rich in nutrients and vital substances and contains other important amino acids such as lysine and tryptophan in addition to the proteins in the meat. The menu is rounded off with natural minerals, high-quality linseed oil and a little fennel.

We only use fresh, food-grade ingredients for our fresh pork menu in our in-house pet food kitchen. High-quality pork and pig's ears are cooked slowly and gently at low temperatures. Only then do we add cooked buckwheat, blanched carrots, pumpkin, apples, linseed oil, rosehip, algae lime, brewer's yeast, seaweed meal and fennel to the cooked feed. This ensures that the flavour and nutrients from the fresh ingredients are optimally preserved.

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.

Complementary feed for dogs.



Freshly Cooked Pork (70%)
Cooked pork is rich in protein, which contributes to muscle maintenance, as well as vitamins and minerals such as B vitamins, iron and zinc. Cooking makes the meat easier to digest, which makes it well tolerated by dogs with sensitive stomachs. Potential pathogens are not present in cooked pork.



Buckwheat (10%)
Buckwheat is a good addition to a dog's diet as it is gluten-free and an excellent source of vegetable protein and fibre. The protein in buckwheat contains all the essential amino acids that are important for a healthy diet in dogs. Buckwheat is also rich in various vitamins and minerals such as B vitamins, magnesium and iron, which can contribute to overall health.



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.



Pumpkin (6%)
Pumpkin is rich in antioxidants, which counteract the formation of free radicals. The potassium it contains helps to regulate fluid balance, while vitamin B6 makes an important contribution to haematopoiesis and the nervous system. Finally, magnesium in pumpkin regulates the electrolyte and water balance in the body and ensures bone stability.



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.



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.



Fennel (0.1%)
Fennel is good for dogs as it is a natural source of vitamins such as A, C and K. It also contains minerals such as calcium, iron and potassium, which are important for bone and muscle health. In addition, fennel can help with digestive problems and have a calming effect on the gastrointestinal tract. However, it is important to feed fennel in moderation and to consult with a vet beforehand to ensure it is suitable for the individual dog.

The Fidelis Difference: Gentle Processing, Superior Quality

The gentle steam pre-cooking of our meat allows for sterilization in jars at significantly lower temperatures and shorter dwell times. This keeps the meat in nice, chunky pieces, not overcooked mush.

Thanks to the pre-cooking, less water evaporates during sterilization, eliminating the need for artificial binders commonly used in canned food. These binders, often not listed on ingredients labels, can potentially trigger allergies and other health issues.

By using only fresh, high-quality ingredients without binding agents, our fresh food in jars boasts a fresh, delicious aroma, a world away from the typical unpleasant smell of canned food. Gentle preparation also preserves more nutrients from the original ingredients, minimising the need for artificial vitamins with a varied diet.

Glass: The Healthier Choice

Fidelis fresh food in jars offers additional advantages over canned food. Glass eliminates the risk of metal particles or coating residues contaminating the food. Residues from tin cans have been linked to cancer and other diseases. Glass simply doesn't leach any harmful substances. It's no wonder baby food is primarily available in glass jars.

The glass are also resealable and bad odours from opened cans in the fridge are a thing of the past. The result: fresh-smelling, healthy, wholesome menus for a species-appropriate, varied and digestible diet for your dog. Just as practical as tinned food, only much better.

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 4.5% of body weight
Dogs up to 15 kg: approximately 2.5-3% of body weight
Dogs over 15 kg: approximately 2.5-3% of body weight

Example: A 20 kg dog with a recommended daily allowance of 2.5% would need 500g of food per day (20 kg * 2.5% = 500g).

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.
