Lucy Pet Tactical Fuel

Finally, Tactical Fuel™ was designed to support the digestive tracks of hard-working dogs, which is why it features premium chicken, brown rice, and oatmeal. Lucy Pet Tactical Fuel™ is trusted by Military working dogs, government working dogs, K9 Police dogs, and also service dogs.

These ingredients provide your dog with all the endurance, power, and nutrition they need to perform at their highest level!

What Makes Lucy Pet The Best Dog Food For Active Dogs?

First and foremost, Lucy Pet’s™ Tactical Fuel™ dog food for active dogs is made with real ingredients sourced from the USA, and global sources and it contains no artificial preservatives or ingredients from China.

Second, Lucy Pet™ uses only premium ingredients like real chicken meat and complex carbohydrates like brown rice and oatmeal to provide a “clean burning” source of fuel for your active dog.

Why are these ingredients so important?

Just like their human counter-part athletes competing in professional sports like basketball, football, baseball, etc., working dogs need protein to build, repair, and maintain muscle mass. Protein provides the amino acids required to build hair, skin, tendons, ligaments, and cartilage, and it’s even important for hormone production!.

That’s why we included premium chicken in our Tactical Fuel™ formula, as it’s not only one of the most biologically available proteins, but it also tastes great!

And like professional athletes, working dogs require a diet full of healthy complex carbohydrates for sustained energy to perform at their very best.

Complex carbohydrates like brown rice and oatmeal release their nutrients slowly into the bloodstream, meaning your dog won’t experience any sugar rushes or “crashes” throughout the day. This is important because many working dogs may have a day that’s just as long (if not longer) than our own!

Finally, Tactical Fuel™ is designed with your dog’s digestive health in mind. After all, all the protein and carbs in the world won’t matter if your best friend is suffering from indigestion! Who wants to work with a stomach ache?

Lucy Pet’s focus on digestive and gut health becomes even more important in light of research which has shown that a healthy digestive system bolsters your dog’s immune system. After all, you want your active, working furry best friend to remain active and working for as long as possible, right?

Feeding Guidelines When Choosing A High-Energy Diet For Dogs

When transitioning to Lucy Pet’s high-energy dog food, it’s important to follow a few basic guidelines.

How to Transition to Lucy Pet Tactical Fuel 

The key to switching foods is to do it gradually, so your dog’s digestive system can adapt to our formula and nutrients. Start by replacing 20-25% of the current food you are feeding with Lucy Pet Formulas for Life. Each day, gradually increase the amount of new food and decrease the amount of former food until your pet is eating only the new diet.

If your pet tends to have a sensitive stomach, allow up to 10-14 days to fully transition to Lucy Pet’s Formulas for Life™

In some instances, a pet can experience soft stools during the first week when you switch and transition to any new food. Lucy Pet Formulas for Life, digest easily and most pets transition smoothly. However, if your pet’s stool becomes loose, it may be necessary to transition more gradually to the new diet.

Be sure to temporarily eliminate any treats or wet food for the first few days, and follow feeding guidelines closely. Lucy Pet diets may require different feeding quantities than the food you were previously feeding.
