rescuebadge-250.pngrescue-5-petunia-a.pngRescue is a dehydrated functional food blend developed by Wendy Volhard which is Anti-inflammatory, Hypoallergenic and Gluten free! Rescue is crafted in small batches with whole food ingredients and herbs to support the liver, kidney, heart, lungs, stomach and digestive tract.

During the cold dehydration process, only moisture is extracted so that the integrity of the vitamins, minerals and amino acids is maintained, which revitalize when hydrated with water. Rescue is suitable for dogs with a history of digestive upsets and is used by breeders, trainers and pet owners who wish to have long-lived, healthy dogs.

Holistic Proactive Veterinarians agree that a fresh, healthy and balanced higher protein, low-glycemic diet that includes functional foods can help dogs reduce inflammation while preventing, managing and overcoming serious health conditions.

When mixed with 80/20 beef and water, the foundation mix provides a complete and balanced diet for dogs who are suffering from sensitivities to grains, experiencing chronic ear and skin inflammation and inflammatory diseases and need a food low on the glycemic index.

*The largest ingredient is the protein, which the customer adds.  We recommend 80/20 beef.

Each ingredient is tested when it enters the facility for E. Coli, fungus and mold. After every batch is prepared, the batch is assay tested again 3 times to make sure there is no E. Coli, fungi, and mold. Volhard takes every precaution to make sure the product you receive is a safe and nutritious product!

Each dog is an individual with different lifestyles and metabolisms. The following are only guidelines. Before putting your dog on Rescue, weigh him or her. The amounts listed are for dogs that get about 2 hours of exercise a day. If your dog starts to put on weight, cut back on the breakfast meal, feed the new amount for a week, then re-weigh him or her. Adjust accordingly.

HOW MUCH TO FEED  |  C=Cup, T= Tablespoon
Feeding guidelines are based on the needs of a dog that does 2 hours of exercise per day.


1.  Put Rescue into a dog bowl and add water to rehydrate.

2.  Add meat.

3.  Mix and serve!

Feed an equal amount twice a day. If you are already feeding a raw diet, you can make the transition immediately. To prevent digestive upsets when changing from a kibble diet, transition your dog over a period of about 7 days.

Rescue contains only natural preservatives. Refrigerate or freeze upon receipt.



The Volhard Dog Nutrition Rescue diet was formulated to exceed the nutritional levels established by the NRC and AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for All Life Stages, including the growth of large size dogs.


“I was desperate to find food that my dog could eat with all her issues. Wendy Volhard gave me some of the new food being tested and I have seen such improvement in a short time. Liver enzymes went back to perfect and blood pressure reduced. I cannot wait for it to hit the market!”  Susan S.

“I love the fact that this is a unique food that offers a diverse vegetable medley. I am working on building my dog’s immune system through her gut and this provides what is needed.”  Mary K.

“I trust Wendy Volhard with my dog’s nutrition. There is no other food I would feed. Excited to have a Grain-Free choice!”  Jennifer P.

“It is scary what is happening today with dogs’ health. I am so appreciative that Volhard Dog Nutrition never falls for the fads and only puts out the best diets. If your dog is in crisis- this is the food. You will figure it out.”  Robin S.

So grateful for Volhard

My dog has struggled for 8 years (his whole life). More recently he was struggling & un diagnosed. He had samples from his gi tract, tonsils & a facial lymph node. All came back as inflammation/inflammatory tissue. Steroids & many other meds later he was worse than before. insert Volhard & he is off his meds & doing so well for the first time in his whole life! Volhard saved my dog & I believe that "volhartedly" . Thank you from the bottom of my heart, I always knew there had to be a better way!

Rescue Diet

In August of 2020 my good friend went into the hospital, and I took over the care of her 9.5 years old Lhasa Apso. He had horrible allergies, that are environmental and probably food related as well. He had been living on a cocktail of antibiotics and medicated shampoos. Our vet recommended the usual prescription commercial diets. There was no way I could rationalize feeding that. Having fed the original Volhard diet, since 1990, I remembered that there were new formulas that were developed. I checked the website and found the Rescue diet and ordered it. I have to grind it down a bit more since he has some digestive issues with the fruits and veggies but otherwise he is doing very well on it and his energy level and personality have changed dramatically. His coat is coming back in and he has become more engaged with curiosity. When he came here he had a very flat personality and couldn’t have cared less about anything. He will probably always have skin issues since these have been his life for a very long time. But I am encouraged, he is brighter and more interested in the world around him. I’m just sorry that I didn’t change him back in August when I got him. Great food!!!!!!! 10 STARS!!!!!
