From our family to yours...
Our family has made all natural, non-processed, so-good-humans-can-eat-it dog foods at home for over 20 years. We use human-grade proteins and vegetables - the same exact stuff we humans eat ourselves. Our products are made with no-antibiotics-ever meats, no animal by-products, no synthetic ingredients and no fillers - all U.S. sourced and USDA-inspected. And what we can - we source locally.
The result? Lola and Baxter, our German shepherd mix and shiatsu duo, have great energy, shiny coats, strong nails, healthy eyes, less hip and joint issues for Lola and nearly zero asthma for Baxter. Most importantly, we have fewer visits to the vet. Recently, our vet took notice of our pups health and suggested we spread our food to other pups under his care. That's when we realized the health benefits experienced by our pups could (and should) be shared with the dogs of the world in an easy and accessible way.
This is the purpose of Lola & Baxter – to provide your furry family members with the best food, conveniently and consistently. This is our promise to you.
fit for you, made for them
Each one of our fresh, human-grade recipes has been analyzed and balanced with the help of an expert PhD vet nutritionist. The resulting doggie health transformations have been outstanding.
Our Fresh Recipes
We offer three recipes for adults, two high-protein recipes for puppies, and two low-protein recipes for dogs with special needs. We never use preservatives, and all of our meat is USDA certified, free of antibiotics and hormones.
meet our family
Meet Nadereh (aka Mom). When it comes to feeding her humans and animals, Nadereh does not mess around. As the creator of all Lola & Baxter recipes, Nadereh has spent the better part of two decades honing in on the perfect medley of vegetables and proteins. Her recipes are fit for all her children, but specifically formulated for the furry ones. Nadereh's years of research and testing have resulted in a product that is transforming the health of the beloved animals under our care.
THE BIZ WIZ
Iman is the visionary behind Lola & Baxter brand and concept. He was still working as a business consultant at a Fortune 500 firm when Mom shared that the vet wanted to carry Lola & Baxter recipes. Putting his analytical skills to use, he began extensive research on the dog food industry. It wasn't long before he realized the market was saturated with foods and brands that were intentionally misleading to put it nicely. Iman is on a mission to deliver Mom's healing recipes with a customer service experience that bars none.
