You can also follow the steps of the recipe type choice below (question "how to select a recipe for a homemade, mixed or industrial diet among the offered options?" )
>> All you have to do is choose these when you complete the questionnaire.
For example for a Labrador cross Large Poodle.
>> the best is to pick two as close as possible to reality. This makes it possible to better assess the real energy need.
If the owner does not know his origins, we can guess a probable crossing of Labrador with a brachycephalic or muscular dog. You can then put:
> Labrador and Bulldog or Labrador and Boxer: the choice of breeds is important for calculating rations, Labrador having for example a reduced energy requirement
> Unknown race: the calculated energy requirement is then a little less precise because the factor linked to the race is standardized.
It is not possible to change breed a posteriori.
If you have not yet ordered a recipe, it is best to delete the profile of the animal and create a new animal.
If you have already ordered and paid for a recipe, please send us an email with the NAME of your pet and your id email.
On our website, we calculate recipes adapted to your pet, but we do not prepare food.
We provide you with tailor-made recipes: you choose the ingredients proposed according to the characteristics of your pet, we calculate the appropriate recipe, and indicate the quantities of each ingredient / food, the modalities of preparation, distribution, preservation of the food
For technical reasons, it is necessary to order the recipes one by one.
If you want several recipes for the same animal, the best is to choose a Petddict subscription. This will allow you to get as many recipes as you want for the same animal for 3 months.
To learn more, please check below the section "PetACroc subscription"
If you want a recipe for two different animals, it is necessary to order the first one, and then order a recipe for the other.
For a healthy cat or dog:
*1st step : fill your pet's information
*2d step : pick the ingredients
* Kibble and/or can = industrial food
> Select "kibble" or "can" or both:
you can choose the type of food you give (choose a COMPLETE FOOD for the characteristics of your dog or your cat) and have the label of the whole foods distributed handy because you will have to enter some information ...
The proportion of KIBBLE vs CAN can be chosen by moving the cursor: 25% / 75% or 50% / 50% or 75% / 25% of the calories provided respectively by the croquettes and by the boxes.
BE CAREFUL we do not judge the relevance or the quality of the industrial foods chosen. We take into account their calorie content when deciding how much to give, taking into account the individual characteristics of the animal.
* Homemade diet
> Select "Fresh food = Homemade diet"
> Choose: 1 meat or 1 fish among the choices offered (depending on the choices you make next, it may happen that this choice is reconsidered and that you are offered a slightly different list so that the whole recipe is balanced) + 1 vegetable (a single vegetable or a list of a few interchangeable vegetables) + 1 starch (you can choose no starch or little starch or a standard amount)
In any homemade diet, the recipe will contain Rapeseed Oil and Vit'i5 so that the recipe is balanced. Stick to the addition of these ingredients which represent 40 to 50% of the essential nutrients (even in small quantities since it is micronutrients, they are nonetheless essential).
* both :
Dry food in the morning, homemade in the evening ... common in Dogs
Kibble and xan, AND homemade ... often required for catsC
> Select "Half-Half"
you must then select the food type (kibble and can), and the homemade food part.

Choose a food where it is written complete food, and intended for a dog or a cat in the situation of your animal. We take into account the nutritional characteristics of the label (average analysis), to calculate the energy density.
