Our first cold-pressed insect protein dry food made from the larva of Hermetia illucens (black soldier fly). This food offers the opportunity to conserve natural resources with species-appropriate feeding. It is healthy, sustainable, animal-friendly and has the lowest ecological footprint.
Our gluten-free, dried insect larvae recipe is gently cold pressed into a pellet form so that the valuable nutrients from our proven DogProMin complex and other ingredients are preserved optimally. Whole grain rice provides healthy nutrients as well as having a low allergy potential. The larvae of the Hermetia illucens contains a high proportion of protein, fat, and a healthy amount of lauric acid. This simple creation is easily digested and tolerated for food-sensitive dogs or dogs with allergies.
The ecological advantages of insect rearing are numerous. They require less space in arable land and other natural resources. They require significantly less water for rearing, and they have low emissions of ammonia and CO2. It becomes clear why this new way of feeding can become so important for people who are mindful of the environment.
Used as a substantial supplementary feed, Canis Plus® InsectVetal® should be fed alternately with our complete feed. This is because the insect calcium and phosphorus content is different from that of meat or fish. Our Canis Plus® InsectVetal, fed in separate meals, can be combined with all Canis Plus® foods and with BARF. This reduces meat consumption and provides the dog with a holistic, and species-appropriate care. (there is more in-depth information about our Canis Plus® InsectVetal® on this page.)

|FEED PER DAY
If you have previously fed an extruded food (such as a branded commercial dry kibble), we recommend a complete change to our cold-pressed food. This is because the mixing of extruded and cold-pressed food is unfavorable for the dog due to the different digestion times. It is best to completely replace the meals with the Canis Plus® complete meals.
The optimal amount of food to feed, depends on various factors such as activity level, age, season, and physical & mental health and more. These factors should be assessed individually. Please note the recommended amount of food and stick to it for the first 1-2 weeks. Then you can monitor your dog's body weight to determine whether they may need a little more or less food.
It is possible to mix the feeds. You can mix our cold-pressed dry food with our complete meals, our pure meat products or BARF. For stomach-sensitive dogs, however, we recommend that dry and wet food should be fed in separate meals. Further information and tips for the changeover can be found here.
Should you have any questions about the changeover, our team will be happy to help you via e-mail or telephone.
