Why Choose Air-Dried Nutrition for Your Pet?

There are so many food options for your pet, the process of choosing can be daunting. From wet and dry, to kibble and raw, we now also have dehydrated, freeze-dried and air-dried to consider. So what makes air-dried nutrition so healthy and wholesome that it's the only kind we offer? Let's dig in! 

The Isle of Dogs’ nourish™ line is gently air-dried at low temperatures, in small batches. This process serves to naturally preserve the real, raw meat without using artificial preservatives. And it delivers power-packed nutrition! Here's why:

First, what is air-dried nutrition?

All moisture is removed through evaporation in the air-drying process. Isle of Dogs uses a low temperature to process the food quicker. Air drying is the middle ground between a freeze-dried product and a dehydrated product.

Why air dry?

The air-drying process helps maintain the nutritional value of the proteins, vitamins, and nutrients in the over 90% real, raw meat.

Plus, for pet parents who are interested in feeding their dog a raw diet, but who aren’t interested in the mess or logistics involved in a raw-food diet, air-dried food closes that gap.

What are the benefits of air-dried dog food?

Without any moisture, the food doesn’t spoil as quickly, so it has a much longer shelf life than either a traditional kibble or a raw food. Plus, unlike freeze-dried products and raw meat products, it doesn’t need to be kept frozen or refrigerated. In addition to maintaining the nutritional integrity of the natural ingredients, the air-drying process keeps the ingredients fresh.

Finally, if you choose to feed your pet air-dried nutrition, remember: Since the water is removed, make sure your pet has access to plenty of fresh water at all times!
