THE ORIGIN OF HOUND
The earliest distinct type of hound can be traced back around 5,000 BC in the Southern Mediterranean, often hunted along side humans, also called Greyhound. When a kill was made, bones and certain viscera of this prey that were discarded became food for the dog. This was when the first form of "RAW FEEDING" was originated. Due to the biologically appropriate food and environment, hound dogs often have strength to hunt up to the age of 15-20 years. the longest living hound every recorded in the history was 30 years of age!
FOUNDATION OF LOVE
Hound Origin is an example of what happens when “love” for pets becomes more than a word, it transforms into something that compels us to actively work to make their lives better.
The meaning of originality our name conjures up is no coincidence. We are part of the tight-knit raw feeding movement who aim to promote canine ancestral diet, the Biologically Appropriate Raw Food (BARF), for the optimal health benefit they have always been deserved.
THE MISSION TO BRING BACK
WHAT THEY WERE BORN TO EAT
Our mission is to help pets and their owners enjoy more years of healthy companionship together. To do that, we make feeding the healthiest diet possible for pets convenient and cost-effective. But that's just the start.
THE VISION OF A FUTURE WHERE
Our love for animals extends beyond our passion for pups and paws. That’s why we take words like “consciously-sourced” seriously. We make sure all of the animals in our care, including the ones we use for our meals, are treated humanely and being cared for up to our standard.
OUR PROMISE AS A BARF BRAND
ALL-NATURAL HOLISTIC WHOLE-PREY APPROACH
The combined science of raw food has always been at our core. Our recipes were developed based on canine's ancestral diet of Whole Prey combining with the modern holistic approach of feeding fruit, vegetable and supplement. We ensure that all the sourcing of ingredients including meat, fruit, vegetable and supplements are all- natural and human-grade only.
HIGHEST QUALITY AND SAFTY STANDARD
Hound Origin recipes start with the highest quality ingredients from vendor we deeply trust then proceed with the best safety procedure in the raw pet food industry. All our ingredients are soaked and rinsed with apple cider vinegar, the most natural way of cleaning away bacteria. Our raw food is then cold-pressured to ensure it’s free of pathogens. This natural process uses high pressure (rather than high heat) for safe raw food, with more nutrients intact than cooked pet food.
SCIENCE-PROVEN BALANCED DIET
Our raw diet recipes are formulated by a pet nutritionist and scientifically proven to guarantee completed and balanced nutrition established by the AAFCO Dog Food with appropriate amount of bacteria and "NO" Salmonella. The recipes were also tested in volunteer pups with differences of breed, size and health concern to monitor changes in improvement until we are sure that our meal can be shared to your beloved one too.
Because of its biologically appropriate property, raw food has the power to transform pups and paws' lives, leading to a happier, healthier pet. Pet parents who have switched to feeding Hound Origin raw diet have noticed positive changes in their pets’ skin & coat health, digestion, overall energy, help with food sensitivities, and increased mealtime excitement – even from the pickiest pets.
