Useful Information

Preparing Nature's Blend - Healthy Growth:

Use it as a Mixer:

If you'd like to boost your dog's diet with freeze-dried raw nutrition but don't want to replace their current food, you can use Active Vitality as a mixer. To add, simply reduce the amount of your dog's food and replace with the desired amount of Active Vitality to avoid overfeeding.

Safe Handling:

Do not open bag until ready to use. For maximum freshness after opening, store in a cool, dry place. Always completely seal bag after feeding. Rehydrated food will maintain optimum freshness for 3 to 5 days with refrigeration.


  • It's made for dogs age 7+ with superfoods tart cherry and New Zealand green mussel for vital immune system and mobility support.
  • 79% of the formula is REAL premium cuts of meat... because a high-protein diet can support your dog's active playtime, vital organs, and healthy lifespan.
  • It's FREE from artificial preservatives and synthetic vitamins and mineral powders... We naturally keep our food fresh - that way, your dog can easily absorb the nutrients from REAL meat, veggies, fruits, and seeds.
  • It's minimally processed, not blasted with high heat... We freeze-dry our food so it's full of nutrients, bursting with savory flavor, and has a fresh, irresistible texture.

Most dog food companies cook their food at high temperatures, which can destroy many of the nutrients.

Instead, we gently freeze-dry Nature's Blend - Active Vitality to help protect the nutrients your dog needs and the delicious flavor they love.

As your dog grows, their nutritional needs change too. So we took the original Nature's Blend formula and added key superfoods to combat common signs of canine aging to help your dog experience youthful mobility, playful energy, firm poops, and a healthy immune system.

Generally, I designed Nature's Blend - Active Vitality for ages 7 and up. That said, different sized dogs and breeds can start to show signs of canine aging at different times.

Here are our recommendations based on your dog's size:

  • Small breeds: 10 years and up
  • Medium breeds: 8 years and up
  • Large breeds: 7 years and up
Absolutely. If you and your veterinarian don't see a noticeable improvement in your dog's health and happiness, please let us know. You can send back the unused portion any time within 90 days, and we'll return your purchase price, hassle-free - guaranteed.

The best staff and dog food ever

My puppy loves this food! He is a grazer all day. Not a typical “ eat everything at once” type of dog. He picks at food in his bowl during the day. Since this is freeze dried, the food doesn’t go bad during the day unlike a wet canned food.
Thanks Dr. Marty! I know he is getting all the nutrients he needs.

Great food with NO fillers.
October 15, 2023
Great food for my two Yorkies. Even my dog Vet recommends it to his customers.
  • Other dog foods have fillers. Their bag may say none, but the manufacturer may put them in and not the whole-seller.

Balanced diet, no fillers. I use as addition to homemade meal for my dog. Only complaint is that pellets don’t dissolve well. I have to grind them between my fingers, but they still don’t absorb water well.

Dr. MARTY'S small dog food

Disappointed I had to wait almost a month to receive my order.
My dog ran out of food. Luckily I found a local pet store that carries it.
Will not order from this company again.

May 13, 2023
I give Dr. Marty's food total credit for keeping my little minischnauzer alive and happy. She is 18 years old and going strong, despite the fact that she is deaf, blind, and toothless. She had been a very picky eater until about 3 years ago when I found Dr. Marty' she eats with gusto, three meals a day. Thank you, Marty! As for the company that sold this food, I probably won't buy from them again. They apparently had a supply problem, and it made the food about a month late. I have since decided that I will buy the food directly, thus eliminating the issues of a "middle man."

Merchant Response:18 year odl little minischnauzer! How fantastic. We love that breed. You both take care. ??

Our Golden Doodle Doodle is 70 pounds, larger than either of his parents. One and a half years old, he has enjoyed a hand full of Dr. Marty's along with his chicken and brown rice food
since he was 8 weeks old. He eats Dr. Marty's first, then goes back and eats his regular food. He knows what is yummy. Premium food!!

Merchant Response:Hello Mark, Your pet sounds like he knows what he wants, we appreciate feedback and hope your pet continues to enjoy using Dr. Marty's as an additional to his meals. Sincerely, EntirelyPets

Best dog food!!!!!!!
July 3, 2022
My little picky dog loves this food. I have tried everything in dry, wet and freeze dried food. She is very picky and only eats other foods if she is very hungry or the cat shows interest. With Dr. Marty’s she always eats it with gusto. Only negative is the price. If she was more than 10 lbs I couldn’t afford to only feed her that.
  • Healthy food
  • Pricey but worth it. The price reflects the quality.

Nature’s Blend saved Rags’ life
March 11, 2022
Ragamuffy is a 10 pound JackRussell/poodle. A couple of years ago his health started declining and he became more picky than ever about what he would eat. I happened across Dr Marty’s ad for Nature’s Blend and decided to try it. Best decision I made. While he has lost some of his vision and his joints let him down quite often, this 18 year old has the bounce and trounce of a puppy. His vets are always so amazed and have advised people to give Nature’s Blend a try.
  • Everything about it is pro.
  • The only con is IT?S NOT FREE. LOL

My furry baby is very particular about what he will eat so I was not certain if Dr. Marty's freeze dried dog food would appeal to him. I was happy to see that it did! The fact that it provides a biological balanced nutritional alternative to other dried or wet dog food is a plus!

My yorkie is a spoiled and picky eater. After several unsuccessful attempts, I ordered this and was totally surprised that he really liked it. The cat likes it too. My grad dog spent a weekend with me and now she’s hooked too.
  • Dog loves it. Lightweight. No mess.

So Glad you Made for Small Breeds
June 27, 2021
I bought this product before you started selling small breed. Even though my Yorkies liked it, I had to break it up for them to eat. Was worried they would not be able to swallow without incident. I noticed it now came in small breed size and tried it again. My Yorkies might try other food, but rarely continue to eat. With Nature’s Blend for Small Breed they have eaten the whole bag and have ordered more. Thanks again for the wonderful product and especially the small breed size.
  • Dogs love it
  • No stomach issues
  • Small kibble for small breed
