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.

The Transition



“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.

Awesome- so glad we switched!

Our puppy has a sensitive stomach. We switched him over from a very high-quality kibble to the Volhard Rescue diet. He has not had a stomach upset since! He loves the food, it smells fantastic. We cook the hamburger to add to it, we do not feed it raw. Highly recommend this food, it is honestly a good bang for the buck. As far as I can tell it is working out almost the same cost-wise as feeding the kibble we used to feed. If you do not have time to cook from scratch for your dog, this is the next best thing!

Help for Pancreatitis

My 12-year-old mixed-breed male has been on NDF2 since we adopted him at age 2. But in the past 6 months, he has had a couple of bouts with pancreatitis. So, I reached out to the Volhard team to see what changes we could make. We were switched to the Rescue Diet (as well as changing his protein). He loved the taste and it certainly helped him recover. We are back on the NDF2 now, but keep the Rescue Diet on hand, just in case!
