What Do Those Numbers Mean?

The two numbers represent the protein-to-fat ratio of the food. For example, Inukshuk 32/32 would make up a ratio of 32% protein and 32% fat. Each step up is higher in protein and in fat level. The formulas correspond to the increasing needs of dogs as they work harder.

If the dog is in cold water hunting, then high energy 32/32 is best used. Then, when back home recuperating, it is best to move to a lower energy level food like 26/16.

This common ingredient base allows the dog to move up or down within the Inukshuk Power Band without any digestive upset. Keep in mind, some dogs may have a very high energy requirement, while others may not.

Why Does Protein Matter?

Protein has several roles in a dog's body. It provides the energy needed in repairing and buildings muscle tissues, growing new skin cellshair, nails, it creates the hormones and enzymes needed to function normally and it keeps their immune system strong.

Two of the best sources of protein are chicken and fish, which are both key components of Inukshuk Dog Food.

Why Does Fat Matter?

Unlike humans, dogs burn fat before any other nutrient, therefore, it is very important that high energy dogs use food that can meet their needs

Fats are a dense source of energy that is necessary to keeping your pet active and healthy. They help maintain a shiny coat and can prevent skin disorders. They also are vitally important to your dog's ability to smell!
