Meat is always the first ingredient in TLC, with emphasis on the protein-rich, low-carbohydrate ancestral diet of wild dogs. With its high meat content, TLC is an excellent substitute for RAW diets. TLC's meats are chicken, lamb and salmon. No by-products or fillers – no compromise!
Protein is the building block of life, essential for muscle and tissue development. TLC’s top two ingredients Lamb and Chicken are among the highest digestible proteins available. Lamb Meal is an excellent source of protein, great for muscle development and overall body maintenance. Chicken provides a balanced and complete amino acid profile and the fresh meaty flavor that dogs love.
Salmon Meal is an excellent source of protein and Omega-3 Fatty Acids that supports heart, circulatory, skin and coat health. The salmon meal and oil used in TLC Whole Life Natural comes from the Atlantic Ocean, USA and are naturally preserved with Vitamin E, and are 100% Ethoxyquin free!
The Whole Life Herbal Pack™ is a core component of TLC Dog Food, and includes all natural herbs, fruits and vegetables to promote heart, digestive, intestinal and circulatory system health, protect against disease and inflammation, and to provide healthy skin and coat.
Probiotics are dietary supplements containing beneficial bacteria, intended to assist the body’s naturally occurring balance of bacteria, thus promoting digestive health. TLC Whole Life Natural Dog Food includes four varieties of probiotics.
Probiotics help regulate the intestinal microbial environment, stopping pathogens and harmful bacteria from colonizing in the digestive system. TLC Whole Life Natural Dog Food contains the four most important types of Probiotic beneficial bacteria:
Prebiotics are dietary supplements that the provide nutrients for the Probiotic beneficial bacteria. Our food contains Mannan-Oligosaccharides and Chicory Root Extract to provide ideal nutrition for the beneficial bacteria found in TLC.
Mannan-Oligosaccharides (MOS) are a type of sugar that feeds the beneficial bacteria found in the intestine, encouraging gastrointestinal health and performance. Chicory root contains the soluble fiber inulin, which also feeds beneficial bacteria in the intestines.
The prebiotics in TLC are non-digestible, allowing them to reach the intestine unaffected by the digestion process. When they reach the intestine, the prebiotics feed the beneficial bacteria, providing good digestive health. The reaching of prebiotics to the intestine in this unchanged form is referred to as the prebiotic effect.
TLC Whole Life Dog Food is formulated with the ideal protein and fat ratio for dogs (26:16), providing the best nutrition for every stage of life.
TLC Whole Life Dog Food is formulated to provide the best nutrition for every stage of life, from puppy, through gestation, lactation and senior years.
Natural Glucosamine and Chondroitin are two building blocks of cartilage tissue, and can help maintain cartilage for healthy joints and mobility. For this reason, TLC Whole Life Natural Dog Food contains guaranteed levels of natural Glucosamine and Chondroitin, helping your dog maintain healthy joints for a lifetime of activity.
Glucosamine and Chondroitin are natural substances found within and around cartilage cells. Cartilage is a tissue found at the joint areas, providing the necessary smooth surface and cushion for the movement of articulating bones. Maintaining healthy joint cartilage is essential for mobility and proper joint function, and aids in injury prevention and recovery.
Glucosamine and Chondroitin work together as building blocks of healthy cartilage. Glucosamine is an amino sugar that assists with cartilage formation and repair. Chondroitin is part of a protein molecule that gives cartilage its elasticity and cushioning.
Are Glucosamine and Chondroitin effective?
University and Veterinary studies have determined that Glucosamine and Chondroitin are successful in building, maintaining and repairing cartilage and healthy joints. Studies include those from the Dept. of Veterinary Medicine, Dublin, Ireland, 2007 “The results show that Glu/CS has a positive clinical effect in dogs with osteoarthritis.”
The Chondroitin found in TLC Whole Life Natural Dog Food comes from New Zealand Green Lipped Mussels, the ultimate source of natural Chondroitin. The Glucosamine in TLC comes primarily from deep water Herring, with an added amount from Green Lipped Mussels
Glucosamine and Chondroitin are not only for senior dogs. Wear and tear on cartilage occurs over a lifetime, starting as a puppy. A diet including Glucosamine and Chondroitin will help to support your dog's lifetime joint health.
Please also remember that maintaining the ideal weight for your dog is essential for good joint and skeletal health.
As your dog ages they can experience health problems, and their bones and hips will become more susceptible to breaks and injury. Cartilage building blocks, such as Glucosamine and Chondroitin help reduce the deterioration of the bones and hip joints and help build healthy joints and cartilage.
How does glucosamine help canine arthritis and hip dyspepsia?
Glucosamine stimulates cartilage cells (chondrocytes) to synthesize glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycans which in combination with collagen, and water make up the large part of cartilage. Glucosamine also helps retain water in the joints, this acts like a lubricant which keeps bones floating in the joint without actually making contact. Taking extra Glucosamine HCl helps your dog's body restore cartilage production and results in more flexible, nourished joints. Your dog will notice the difference. When taken in combination with an additive like Chondroitin, the effects can be remarkable!
TLC has the top ingredients for skin and coat health, including the best animal fats, omega-3 rich salmon oil and the Herbal pack of essential natural nutrients.
For healthy skin and coat, dogs need high quality nutrients, including animal fats and oils. TLC Whole Life Natural Dog Food includes chicken fat and Omega-3 rich salmon oil to nourish the skin and coat with essential oils. TLC also includes Flaxseed and Lecithin as additional quality sources of Omega-3 essential fatty acids. In addition to helping to keep the skin and coat healthy, Omega-3 Fatty Acids help to maintain lower cholesterol levels for heart health.In addition to essential oil and fats, your dog’s skin health needs the best quality and most digestible minerals. TLC Whole Life Natural contains chelated minerals needed for skin and coat health. Chelated refers the process of attaching the minerals to an amino acid, making them much easier to digest and absorb. Chelated minerals usually list as “proteinate” on ingredient lists. The most important mineral in TLC Whole Life Natural for skin and coat health is zinc proteinate.
TLC is a low glycemic index food, protecting your pet from obesity and diabetes.
TLC uses a mix of the very best low glycemic, slow to digest ingredients for its carbohydrates, including iron-rich Oatmeal, Whole Grain Barley, Brown Rice, Millet, Sweet Potato and Flaxseed.
The glycemic index refers to how quickly the sugars and carbohydrates from foods are absorbed into your blood stream. High glycemic foods are those that contain refined ingredients such as potato, white flour and corn syrup. These ingredients can lead to high blood sugar, obesity, insulin resistance and diabetes. This is due to high glycemic foods containing quickly digested sugars, resulting in the body generated insulin to convert the sugar to usable energy. Insulin in turn triggers a hunger response in the brain, pressuring the animal to eat more food and more frequently while never feeling full, resulting in obesity. Also, the insulin shock of high glycemic foods can wear and damage the organs, especially the pancreas, resulting in insulin resistance, or diabetes.
According a joint study of the International Journal on Obesity (McMillan-Price J, Brand-Miller J. Low-glycaemic index diets and body weight regulation. Int J Obes 2006), “..a low glycemic index diet will successfully improve cardiovascular risk factors and reduce body weight.”
By feeding low glycemic foods, your dog may avoid obesity and diabetes, and may feel fuller longer. TLC Whole Life Natural dog food contains only the low glycemic whole and natural ingredients your dog needs to protect against obesity and diabetes.
TLC Whole Life Natural dog food does not contain any of the more common allergens such as corn, soy beans, wheat or beef. TLC is specially formulated to provide an allergy-free diet for your dog.
Any protein source (lamb, beef, poultry, wheat, corn, etc.) can cause an allergy reaction if consumed by a sensitized dog. More allergic reactions will occur when beef or wheat products are fed as they have been in dog food longer. Lamb and rice are used by many veterinarians to feed to dogs that are sensitive to other meat sources.
TLC has omitted all of the common allergens from Whole Life Natural Dog Food. Our carbohydrates and proteins are specifically selected for their low allergy rating.
TLC Whole Life Natural contains both Quinoa and Vitamin C for immune system health and stress protection. A healthy immune system can best manage any environmental allergens such as pollen and grass.
TLC Whole Life Natural does not contain any artificial colors, flavors or preservatives, all of which are common allergens and should be avoided.
TLC Whole Life Natural contains no by-products, potato, corn, wheat, soy, fillers, artificial flavors or colors. No compromise!

Color does nothing for the dog, and is added to competitor pet foods purely to attract the pet owner, not the dog itself – TLC never uses artificial colors.
TLC has omitted all of the common allergens from Whole Life Natural Dog Food, including corn and wheat. We also omit potato, a common pet food ingredient, due to its high glycemic rating contributing to insulin resistance, diabetes and obesity.
