USDA Inspected and Certified Boneless/Skinless Chicken Thighs

Wild Caught Pacific Cod
Cod is an excellent source of protein and many vitamins and minerals including vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid), vitamins B6 and B12, selenium, phosphorus, choline, niacin, potassium, and omega-3 fatty acids.
Sardines are an excellent source of protein and are one of the most concentrated sources of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. They are also an excellent source for vitamin B12 and selenium as well as a good source for vitamins B2 and D, phosphorus, calcium, niacin, copper, and choline.
Chicken Bone Broth
At OPK we make our own chicken broth using chicken necks and backs. There’s a lot of popularity around bone broths right now, for great reasons, as they can be very healthy for both humans and pets. But please be careful if you give broth to your pets that they are not made with onions. Almost all bone broth available for purchase online or in stores has onions used for flavoring the broth. Onions are poisonous to both dogs and cats. This is why we choose to make our own, simmered for a full 24 hours, and we don’t use onions.
Pumpkin is nutrient dense with antioxidant beta-carotene and lots of vitamins and minerals including vitamin A, vitamin K, vitamin C, potassium, copper, manganese, riboflavin, vitamin E, iron, folate, niacin, vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid), vitamin B6, and thiamin. Pumpkin is also a great natural product that helps flush hair balls through cats’ GI tracts.
A leafy root vegetable providing fiber, phytonutrients, and many vitamins and minerals including vitamin K, folate, potassium, manganese, vitamin B2, and smaller amounts of calcium, vitamin C, vitamin B6, phosphorus, magnesium, and vitamin A.
Vitamin and Mineral Blend for Balancing
OPK’s supplement blend is formulated specifically for each unique recipe to meet AAFCO guidelines for a maintenance diet. The nutrient blend is compounded from 100% human quality vitamins and minerals.
Daily Feeding Guide and Number of Packages Per Week
The amount in the chart below is the total amount to feed per day. If you feed your pet twice a day, divide this amount by 2 and feed that amount each time. Each pet is unique in their required caloric intake. Some factors include breed, activity level, age, genetics, and overall health. The recommended feeding guidelines below are just that, guidelines. We recommend you keep a close eye on your pet’s weight, weigh them frequently, and adjust as needed. If they gain weight, then you should feed the next lower amount. See Pet Weight for more information. If you have any questions about the amount to feed your pet, please contact us and we are happy to help.
Although most pets have no issues transitioning to OPK and many can eat 100% OPK at their next meal, some pets require a slower transition. Whenever you change to a new diet, it is best to err on the side of caution and transition your pet slowly. If your pet has a particularly sensitive stomach, or they develop sensitivities during the transition, then transition even more slowly than recommended. A suggested schedule is as follows:
First 3-7 days: 25% OPK, 75% old food
Next 3-7 days: 50% OPK, 50% old food
Next 3-7 days: 75% OPK, 25% old food
Next 3-7 days: 100% OPK!
