Frequently Asked Questions

Where is your food made?

Just Right products are proudly manufactured in company-owned facilities in Clinton, Iowa under strict quality control practices.

Can you build a personalized blend for my dog without grain?

Yes. If you would like your dog to avoid grain in their diet, we can accommodate that preference! We formulate most of our products with grains because they provide needed nutrients as part of a nutritionally complete and balanced diet. However, we recognize that you may desire a grain-free diet for your pet(s), so we do offer the option to exclude grains from your dog's personalized blend.

Our grain-free formulas contain alternative sources of carbohydrates, including cassava root flour and pea starch. Learn more about all of our Just Right ingredients, including grain-free carbohydrate sources, in our Ingredients section.
