ROTATIONAL PET FEEDING

Our mission is to help educate pet parents to make feeding decisions that improve your pet’s overall health and wellness. That is why our founder, Lisa Senafe, created the Mixology rotational pet feeding program back in 2008.   

After losing two pets to illness, she took a closer look at what was in their food.  She then created Bentley’s Pet Stuff as the store offering the finest all-natural foods, treats and supplies with the goal of helping all pet parents feed better and smarter through Mixology. 

We believe food is love and you are what you eat. Just as humans need a variety of fruits, vegetables, and proteins to maintain our nutritional value daily, so do our pets.    

When our animals are in the wild, they catch and eat what they can, so they naturally balance their nutrition over time.  They are never overexposed or underexposed to any one thing.  When we then feed our pets the same food, we risk overexposing or underexposing them as well.  

This leads to allergies, inflammation and digestive issues. Food allergies can exist in pets when they eat the same food for years and don’t experience a variety of foods.

Why Does Food Energetics Matter?

Food energetics is an ancient philosophy with the belief that food has cooling, warming, or neutral properties that affect your pet’s health and overall well-being. Balancing their body temperature can be accomplished through feeding the right food.

Cooling meats are for pets who are chronically warm, panting, thirsty or dry. They also help dogs with allergies and inflammation.

Warming meats are for pets who are chronically cold, fatigued, or have a poor appetite.

Neutral meats are for pets anytime and help balance the body.

Food energetics can be applied during different seasons of the year. Feed your pet cooling meats in the summer and warmer meats in the winter months.

Our Fresh Food

Philosophy

Our Fresh Food

Philosophy

Adding freshness to your pets’ diets is very important. Moisture aids in healthy organ function. Different types of food have different levels of freshness. The level of freshness can be determined by a food’s moisture content plus the food’s ability to retain raw nutrients.

The Mixology diet supports rotational feeding and adding freshness to your pet’s diet. If your pet’s diet is made up of only kibble, start small and try mixing in some canned or freeze-dried food to add moisture. You don’t have to go 100% raw or fresh…adding a little fresh overtime will help.

Mix It Up

  • Does your pet currently only eat dry kibble?
  • Adding different proteins, brands and food types promotes a balanced and healthy diet for your pet.
  • Adding canned food or a raw/freeze-dried topper can be a great way to introduce new flavors, texture as well as hydrate your pet along the way.
  • You can even mix proteins. Different proteins have warming, neutral and cooling effects.

How to Add Variety

  • Dry/ Kibble: make sure meat is always the first ingredient.
  • Canned: adds moisture to the meal and can be eaten alone or mixed with other foods.
  • Dehydrated: just add water to make a homemade meal.
  • Freeze-Dried Raw: raw food retains freshness without the mess.
  • Raw: nutrient-dense and moisture-rich, the closest to a pet’s natural diet.

Ready to

Rotate?

Let’s get started adding variety to your pet’s food!

When transitioning your pet over to a new food it’s best to make the change gradually.

This helps avoid an upset stomach. If your pet has a sensitive stomach or you are switching to grain-free food, you may want to extend the transition period.

As you add in new proteins and different foods, we recommend keeping a quick daily list of how your pet reacts to what and which they love.

We recommend that this transition take place over a 7-day period.

The Truth is…..

EVERY PET is different. That’s why we encourage you to visit your local Bentley’s Pet Stuff. Don’t be afraid to add variety to your pet’s diet. You can change it up and oh by the way…you should!
