We take the quality of our product personally. We have high standards for our product from the minute we receive raw ingredients until it leaves our warehouse. We use fixed formulas instead of least cost formulas so that we have the exact same recipe every time. We start off by testing our raw ingredients for foreign products before production. Next we put our team through intense training to make sure they know exactly what they’re doing when helping cook Muenster products. After the product is cooked, we then test everything to assure that we meet our guarantee’s and are free of any foreign products.
We choose to use Chicken Meal instead of Fresh Chicken for several reasons:
- Fresh Chicken is between 70-90% water
- Ingredients are listed in order from heaviest to lightest BEFORE cooking. When you cook a product that is upwards of 80% you only end up with 1/5th of what you claim is in the product. Many times, you will see chicken meal as the first ingredient after an ingredient like fresh chicken in order to compensate for the added water they pump into the formula.
- In our opinion, it’s just a way to deceive the customer into thinking that they are getting something they’re not.
We recommend that you do not switch your dog over to an adult diet unless they are 18 months old. Sometimes the larger breeds need to be switched sooner in order to give them a larger kibble option.
There’s not a set age to transition your dog to a senior food. All of our dogs will age at different rates than others. If your dog starts having joint problems and starts moving slower, we then recommend making a transition to our senior diet or another diet with glucosamine and chondroitin
We recommend that you switch gradually over a time period of 10 days, even when changing from one Muenster product to another.
You can ask your local pet store to carry our product or check out our online store.
We are a small business to the core. We choose to support other independently owned and operated stores. For over 80 years, we have survived with the support of small business and independently owned companies. Our goal is to continue this for the next 80 years.
Several things come into play when you see your dog with loose stools. Just like humans, dogs have the tendency to feel under the weather from time to time. By using fixed formulas and a high level of quality control, we can assure you that your dog is eating the same thing every time. Many times dogs will eat anything they find that might just taste good, yet causes them to get sick. Steps you can take to help ensure the stools stay solid are to avoid feeding table food, feed your dog 2-3 times per day, and keep their food supply consistent.
We source as many ingredients as we can locally. Our family has purchased ingredients from many of the same family farms since 1932. One of the benefits of being located near Dallas is that we are able to order many of our packaging products locally as well.
