Where are Olewo Pet Food Supplements made?
Olewo is a brand of all-natural pet food supplements made with pride in Germany. There is very little regulation in the pet food industry and the way many companies label their products, it is often not clear where the product is actually made and where the ingredients were sourced. Olewo Pet Food Supplements are 1-ingredient products and we know exactly where they are made and sourced. We visit the Olewo manufacturer in Germany regularly and have walked the fields ourselves.
The vegetables used to make Olewo Carrots and Olewo Red Beets are grown in fields dedicated to Olewo, and every step from growing to harvest and preparation is monitored. While many soils around the world are depleted, Northern Germany is known for it's extremely fertile soil. The premium vegetables grown in this fertile soil are more nutritious as if they were grown anywhere else, and they are harvested at just the right time when the nutrient levels are at their peak.
They go into preparation immediately after harvest to assure maximum capture and preservation of the beneficial vitamins and nutrients. The vegetables grown for Olewo Pet Food Supplements have been tested to exceed farming standards for vegetables grown for human consumption.
Can I prepare a batch of carrots ahead of time and then refrigerate it for several days?
Olewo Carrots are meant to be prepared for each meal. The carrot pellets just take a few minutes to rehydrate in some warm water. We know several of our customers make up batches for up to a week ahead of time and keep it in the fridge, and they say it works just fine and they are seeing the benefits. But that is not the recommendation.
Many of the benefits come from the beta-carotene in the carrots, and beta-carotene is sensitive to light, air and moisture. Once the carrots are rehydrated, the beta-carotene is exposed to all of that. Olewo Carrots are very rich in beta-carotene and if you kept rehydrated product for a week, it probably would still contain plenty of beta-carotene. However, if you need to make some extra ahead of time, we suggest not to keep it for more than a couple of days.
Can I give my dogs both, the carrots and red beets with their meals (morning and evening)?
Your dogs can have one daily dose of each, the Olewo Carrots and Olewo Red Beets, which can be given with one meal or split between two meals.

However, you can feed it the way it is most convenient for you as long as you follow the recommended daily dosage. Some of our customers even mix and rehydrate the carrots and red beets together.
