Life’s Abundance Information

Life’s Abundance is based in Jupiter, Florida, and they focus on dog and cat supplements, food, and treats.

However, Life’s Abundance used to go by the name of Trilogy International between 1998, when they were founded, and 2010.

Based on our research, the brand’s foods and products are also produced in Florida, although we have limited information on this facility.

While the core company is a private business, Life’s Abundance has created a non-profit enterprise known as the Dr. Jane Foundation, which supports a number of animal rescue groups.

You can read more about this foundation on Life’s Abundance’s Giving Back Page.

Based on our research, Life’s Abundance is not widely available at retail pet food stores across the United States like most other brands.

Moreover, the common online pet food retailers like Chewy or Petflow also do not sell Life’s Abundance pet food and instead, it is instead sold directly on their website.

Life’s Abundance Product Range

Dog Food

Life’s Abundance has a modestly sized range of dog food products. This includes five dry kibble recipes and three canned/wet dog food recipes.

Despite its relatively small size, some of the core niches are covered by their dry dog food products, including Grain-Free, Puppy, Large Breed Puppy, and Weight Loss.

In addition to its core food offering, Life’s Abundance also sells a variety of dog treats and supplements. The treat range includes several popular varieties such as freeze-dried food, chews, sticks, and more.

The range of supplements from Life’s Abundance includes some that boast of improving joint health and a dog’s skin and coat.

Cat Food

Life’s Abundance’s cat food range is smaller than its dog food range and consists of two dry food recipes and two wet/canned food recipes.

However, these recipes are stated as being suitable for all life stages, which means senior cats and kittens can utilize them.

The cat supplements sold by Life’s Abundance are the same range that is sold to dogs and include those that claim to boost the health of a cat’s skin and fur and to improve joint health.

Life’s Abundance Nutrition

Dog Food

The nutrition provided by Life’s Abundance dog food varies from recipe to recipe but is generally above average when compared to other brands.

The nutrition profile often includes above-average proportions of protein and fat and a below-average proportion of carbohydrates.

Below we show a chart of the average nutrition provided by their dry food recipes.

Life's Abundance Dry Dog Food Average Calorie Breakdown

As you can see, the protein and fat proportion, on average, makes up 60% of the recipe’s nutritional content.

Despite this, the nutrition profile of some of Life’s Abundance’s recipes could be significantly improved to be a better reflection of a dog’s natural diet.

If you would like to learn more about canine nutrition, we highly recommend you check out our Dog Food Guide for a detailed analysis and discussion.

Cat Food

The nutrition provided by Life’s Abundance cat food is above average and a considerable improvement on many other cat food brands.

Similar to above, you can see the average nutrition provided by Life’s Abundance’s two dry cat food recipes below.

Life's Abundance Dry Cat Food Average Calorie Breakdown

As the chart shows, the nutrition includes above-average proportions of protein and fat, which total over 75% of the recipe’s nutrition content and a below-average proportion of carbohydrates.

However, as is with almost all dry cat food recipes, the proportion of carbohydrates is far higher than should be consumed by cats, given they are obligate carnivores.

Life’s Abundance Ingredients

High-Quality Meat & Fish Ingredients

  • Turkey Meal
  • Chicken Meal
  • Whitefish Meal
  • Turkey
  • Turkey Liver
  • Chicken
  • Chicken Liver
  • Pork
  • Venison
  • Crab
  • Shrimp

Life’s Abundance uses a large range of meat and fish ingredients in its recipes, especially given the size of its product range.

This broad range of ingredients includes whole meat ingredients, meat meals, and organ meats.

There is a particular focus on poultry ingredients in Life’s Abundance recipes, such as Chicken and Turkey, but there are some less common ingredients also present in select recipes such as Venison.

Chicken

All of the meat and fish ingredients used by Life’s Abundance can be satisfactory sources of animal-based protein and fat, which should be at the core of every dog and cat’s diet.

Other Notable Ingredients

Life’s Abundance makes use of the three core Legumes that are used in dog pet food. This includes PeasChickpeas, and Lentils.

Legumes are high in plant-based protein and are affordable, which is why they are so popular in grain-free food.

However, there are some concerns about their extensive use, including links to an increased risk of heart disease among dogs.

Thankfully, Life’s Abundance doesn’t use Legume By-products like Pea Protein. These are considered to be low-quality ingredients as they can be used to mislead consumers and boost protein levels without shelling out on more animal-based ingredients.

Learn more about Peas and Pea by-products in our article Peas, Pea Protein, Pea Flour, and Pea Fiber in Dog Food.

However, Life’s Abundance does not just use legumes in its recipes and also uses a variety of grain ingredients.

Examples of these grains include Brown Rice, Oat Groats, Pearled Barley, Sorghum, and Rice Bran.

Many are adamantly against the use of grains in dog food, but they can be a reliable and affordable source of carbohydrates.

Dog owners who feed brands like Purina Pro Plan and Royal Canin, strongly defend their use and believe grains are a positive addition.

While the debate is fierce, we believe that whole grains such as Brown Rice and Oatmeal should be the preferred grain ingredients thanks to the additional nutrition they can provide.

You can read more detailed information on some of these specific grains in the below articles.

Sorghum

Life’s Abundance makes use of two of the three most popular starch ingredients in dog food. This includes Potatoes and Sweet Potatoes, but Tapioca is absent.

Potatoes and Sweet Potatoes are dense sources of carbohydrates but can provide some additional nutrients. Their density means their portion must be modest; else, they can overload a formula.

Some of Life’s Abundance’s wet/canned food recipes include Potato Starch. Potato Starch is not considered to be a high-quality ingredient by many in the industry, but it does strongly depend on how its used.

It appears it is being used in Life’s Abundance recipes as a thickening agent, and its portion size is relatively small. For this reason, we are not overly concerned about its use.

You can read more about Potato Starch and other Potato By-products in our article Potatoes, Potato Protein & Potato Starch in Dog Food.

Several of Life’s Abundance’s recipes contain a small portion of Egg Product as a minor ingredient.

Egg Product is a highly processed ingredient that is made from the remaining Egg material stuck to the eggshells.

It is used widely through the industry thanks to its nutritional content, high in animal-based protein, and low cost.

However, some are concerned about its use due to the highly industrial process required to remove the egg product from the shells and the lack of transparency at what eggshells are used.

Many draw focus to the fact that Egg Product is not deemed fit for human consumption. If you’d like to read our more detailed look at this ingredient, be sure to check out our article Egg Product In Pet Food.

Egg Shells

Lastly, several recipes from Life’s Abundance utilize small portions of Tomato Pomace. Tomato Pomace is one of the most popular minor ingredients in dry pet food and is present thanks to its fiber content.

Dietary fiber can be critical to many dogs and cats and helps them keep regular stools and digestion.

However, outside of its fiber content, Tomato Pomace provides very little nutritional value, which is why many are cautious about how much of it is used in pet food.

If you’d like to read more about Tomato Pomace, including concerns from some that it may be high in pesticides, check out our article Tomato Pomace as a Pet Food Ingredient?.

Life’s Abundance Animal Testing

We have no information on what type of testing that Life’s Abundance participates in for their products.

However, to the best of our knowledge, we do not believe they participate in invasive or laboratory testing.

Many smaller or less well-known brands avoid disclosing detailed information on their testing and trials due to fear of backlash from their customers.

We strongly believe that invasive or laboratory testing of animals is a cruel and outdated practice and one which we hope will see a serious decline.

Life’s Abundance Recalls

Based on our research (FDAAVMADogFoodAdvisor), we have no information that would lead us to believe that Life’s Abundance products have ever been recalled, which makes Life’s Abundance a recall-free pet food brand.

Given that the brand, or its predecessor, is now over 20 years old, this is a positive sign and shows that they take the safety and quality of their products seriously.

Despite this, consumers should always be on the lookout for any future recalls or quality issues from Life’s Abundance or any other pet food brand to ensure their pets remain healthy and safe.

Grain-Free All Life Stages Review

Life's Abundance Grain Free All Life Stages

The Grain-Free All Life Stages recipe from Life’s Abundance is one of their best thanks to its impressive nutritional profile.

High proportions of protein and fat are at the core of the recipe, which aligns closely with a dog’s natural diet.

These high levels of protein and fat are thanks to a large portion of Turkey Meal and Chicken Meal present.

These meat meals might sound intimidating, but they are highly nutritionally dense ingredients as the majority of their moisture has been removed in advance.

The recipe is rounded off with a mix of legumes and Potatoes, including Peas, Chickpeas, White Potatoes, and Sweet Potatoes.

This mix is often the standard for grain-free dog food recipes, and these plant-based ingredients provide carbohydrates, plant-based protein, and dietary fiber.

Grain-Free All Life Stages Review

Life's Abundance Grain Free All Life Stages Cat Food

Similar to the above-mentioned dog food recipe, Life’s Abundance’s Grain Free All Life Stages Cat Food is one of their best recipes.

The recipe also has a large portion of Chicken Meal and Turkey Meal, which provide the bulk of the recipe’s protein and fat.

However, this recipe also makes use of a large portion of Egg Product. While Egg Product is a processed ingredient, it is still nutritious and can provide additional protein.

The recipe uses Sweet Potatoes, White Potatoes, and Peas for its plant-based content, which provides carbohydrates and fiber.

Cats do not need this nutrition, but it is present in almost all dry cat food, and its portion is smaller than many other cat food recipes.
