The Volhard AM/PM diet is a 2 part foundation mix designed to separate the digestion of carbohydrates and protein over the course of a day’s feeding. The Volhard AM/PM diet was formulated to help heal dogs suffering with GI issues, recovering from illness or injury or senior dogs needing an easier digestive choice.
The breakfast meal -AM Porridge- contains cereal grains, egg, vitamins, molasses and a few other ingredients to which the pet parent adds a vegetable and a small amount of yogurt/kefir to balance the meal. Vegetables and grains are used for energy, proper digestion, stool formation and correct functioning of the thyroid gland.
The dinner meal - PM Crumble- consists of freeze dried liver, vitamins, minerals, oils, herbs and fruit to which the pet parent adds the primary ingredient of protein (raw or cooked muscle meat).
Together these two foundation mixes along with the necessary additions provide a complete and balanced fresh healthy meal. Raw feeding has never been simpler!
AM/PM was formulated under the guidance of a Board Certified Veterinary Nutritionist to outperform the nutritional levels for all breeds, sizes and activity levels for adult dogs. This diet can be used to feed puppies including large breed puppies - please follow our puppy feeding guidelines.
This diet has the quality you can see and smell the moment you open the bag and serve this up. Watch your dog lick the bowl clean following this delicious meal! Made with human edible /food-grade ingredients that are non-GMO, organic, preservative-free, and sourced in the USA.

Build a Bowl
Every dog is special. But it’s not just their personality. Every dog has unique nutrition needs based on their breed, size, shape, activity level and many other factors. The best way to help your dog be the best version of themselves is to build a healthy, balanced bowl that’s a combination of grains, vegetables, proteins, hydrators and supplements that are specific to your pet.
When you build a bowl here at Volhard, you will start with the choice of foundation mix. For better planning, it’s helpful to think about the dog you plan to feed and their issues first. This is where you can determine the "personality" of your bowl.
Build-a-Bowl is a fun way to find out what the nutritional value is in a bowl of Volhard! Then you will be asked to add a protein for a delectable super-powered meal for your dog!

Add a small amount of AM (veggies and yogurt) and/or PM (meat) to the kibble you are feeding your dog now and mix with water. As the week progresses, gradually increase the amount of the diet at each mealtime, veggies, yogurt, meat, and water as appropriate while at the same decreasing the kibble by a corresponding amount, until you have phased out the kibble. (If you are feeding the same meat protein for six days, you may want to feed another protein - canned mackerel or cottage cheese - on the seventh day.) At the end of the transition period, weigh your dog. Weigh your dog again after four weeks. Increase or decrease the amount you feed accordingly.
Recommended Protein: 80/20 beef.
My dog gets up so happy and cannot wait for his breakfast! When I was feeding kibble, he would turn his nose up at it. Some days eating very little. I know he is getting much more nutrients now.
I have 3 fur babies that are in heaven. They love the fresh breakfast. I will never put them on kibble again.
My dogs all love this food and are doing great on them.
Complete, maximum nutrition. Makes a great breakfast, or dinner for very high energy field Chesapeakes!
My dogs have thrived on this food. I first tried it when my dog with severe joint issues at a year and half could no longer jump in the car and needed pain meds. After three weeks on this food he could once again jump in the car and no more pain meds. He also got rid of his hotspots. Another dog had bone cancer. The vet gave him 6 months. He stayed with me another 2 1/2 years. I’m convinced the food helped. My dogs have had amazing health. Hardly ever vomit or have diarrhea.
We like the porridge and our dog is healthy from eating it. It got rid of any digestive problems. We also love the picture of the doggy on the 20 pound bag, the adorable Staffordshire Terrier!!!
My senior dogs love it, and I love how easy it is to make! Smells great, too!
We feed both our Chocolate Lab and our Westie this porridge for breakfast. They love it and we love that it's all natural and good for them! Their coats are healthier, they lost their extra weight and their overall health is just so much better. I can't recommend this and the PM enough!
