How We Choose the Dog Foods We Carry

JessicaJoPhotography
Bridger Animal Nutrition® carefully selects foods from the thousands of premium dog foods available in the marketplace.
Over the last 26 years, we’ve developed an approach that evaluates the sourcing, nutrition, and manufacturing methods of food.

When choosing the dog foods we carry, we look at 1) the quality and digestibility of the ingredients, 2) the source of the nutrients and 3) the reason behind the formula’s foundation. We work with reputable companies who care about the quality of the food they make and are honest in all their communications. 
We believe strongly in feeding fresh, whole foods.  The Bozeman store boasts 18 reach-in glass door commercial freezers and a walk-in in our warehouse filled to the brim with species appropriate components and blends for cats & dogs.  Incorporating raw foods into a pets daily diet adds all sorts of healthy benefits like good bacteria, enzymes, phytochemicals, food-based soluble fibers and antioxidants. Raw food promotes cleaner teeth, better digestion, decreases inflammation, and supports the entire renal system.

We carry commercial raw foods, pre-mixes for your own raw, component ingredients like organ meats, ground organ blends, green tripe, meaty bones, bone grinds, veggie and fruit blends, recreational chew bones, “body parts” like necks and feet, fermented fish stock, kefir, raw milks, broths, toppers,  freeze dried, dehydrated, canned, & kibbled dog foods.

Brands we carry:

We're picky about the brands to carry, so if we don't carry a brand....there's usually a reason.

My kitty was diagnosed with chronic UTI. The staff at Bridger educated me about feeing enough moisture to my cat, changing the litter box around after the infection got managed, and what to feed to prevent  the UTI, and he hasn’t had one now in 7 months and counting. He’s doing so much better, BIG thank you.

Bridger Animal Nutrition®, we believe that good health and diet make a happier pet. Our educated and passionate team strive to provide you with the resources, products and services that will bring the most joy and health to your animals. We each have our own stories and journeys with animals,  just like you, and take our time to get to know your concerns, goals, limitations and expectations for you and your furry or feathered companions.
Bridger Animal Nutrition® is small and independently owned, allowing us to be very picky about what we choose to stock. The orders are also small, meaning you’ll always be guaranteed a fresher product. We also choose local whenever possible — we love to support Montana made products!

The food products we stock are chosen based on the well-being of animals and the environment. Nutrition is a fledgling science and scientists are still learning about different nutrient requirements and synergistic relationships and how these affect organisms short term and long term. We strive keep up with the current knowledge and offer the newest items in nutrition that the market can supply given all the rules and regulations enforced by regulating agencies. We make every effort to keep you informed about what we know and why we choose to carry, or not carry, certain products.
  • USA or Canadian made products
  • Sourceable ingredients
  • Species appropriate formulations
  • Controlled processing
  • Environmentally conscientious practices
  • Montana Feeds when possible
  • Organic Feeds when available
  • Freshness
Some of our very best products came to us by recommendations or requests from customers like you! So if you want us to try to find something, let us know and we'll get to work!
The "non-consumable" products we carry are chosen from the most current trade shows in North America and are based on functionality and fun! We're happy to special order items, and also look for made in Montana goods whenever possible.

Bridger Feeds has been a mainstay of Bozeman since 1984, contributing dollars, time and energy into our community’s fairgrounds, animal shelters, and 4-H club. In order to expand beyond being known as just a feed store, we rebranded in 2010 as Bridger Feeds Animal Nutrition Center, later being shortened to Bridger Animal Nutrition. We specialize in the science of diet and nutrition and offer the most current feed solutions for your animals and are constantly adapting our practices as research progresses.

Each living body is unique. There is no best food or brand — only a best fit for your animal’s needs and overall health.

My beloved Boxer always had loose stools . Libby suggested adding a little tripe gradually to his meals. In a week he had great solid poops, One simple change made a huge difference.

Firework Anxiety and Your Dog

June 30, 2020
Fireworks Fear, it's real!
Whether it’s the 4th of July, New Year’s Eve, or Memorial Day, when humans light up the sky with fireworks, there are many dogs who will be trembling with fear. No loving dog owner likes to see their pet cowering in terror, but fireworks anxiety in dogs is very common. So, what can you do to help your dog when fireworks are being used? What can you give a dog for fireworks anxiety? 

If you search the internet for "what can I give my dog for fireworks anxiety," you will find that some people recommend anti-anxiety drugs. Many people, though, don’t like giving their pets prescription sedatives if there is a natural alternative. That’s why so many dog lovers have started to use CBD products to calm their dog’s distress.

Keto for Dogs?

June 17, 2020
Keto Food Pyramid
Nutrition is a fledgling science. I've said it again and again.
Diets for humans are known to be fashionable & fleeting.
At least, until recently. 
The Ancestral or Paleo diet and the Keto diet are showing some real staying power.
Why? because they make a body feel better, not just look better. It's this feeling of well being that has us taking a closer look at these diets and considering them for our pets.

Dog Breath
Libby,

We are wondering if you have any supplements that help with bad breath? Peachy our 2 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback has had noticeably bad breath for about 2 months now. It seems like she has drainage in the back of her throat sometimes, and hacks to try to get it out usually in the mornings.

Our lab had terribly oily smelly ears and was on antibiotics on & off for about 3 years. Libby helped us get her diet straightened out, which took months, but now her ears are consistently calm. Very nice.
