The Wisdom™ Difference

Standing out from the pack, Wisdom™ is air-dried to maintain vital nutrients and natural flavors. Once cooked, the meat, Vitality Cubes™, and fruits & veggies are carefully tumbled together to create an intensely flavorful, visibly vibrant, and nutritionally complete food. This one-of-a-kind approach allows you to see each healthy ingredient and know exactly what you’re feeding your dog.

What the Wisdom Difference Delivers

High Palatability

Your dog will love it.

Here’s why: Wisdom™ has everything that increases palatability: savory aroma, interesting textures, and multiple flavors. And, our air-drying method optimizes moisture which amps up the taste even more. Oh, and independent testing shows that dogs prefer Wisdom™ to leading kibble and alternative foods every time.

Wisdom Preference Report

High Nutrient Density

Your dog will be completely nourished by it.

Here’s how: Our 3 components are air-dried separately at the optimal temperature to retain moisture and nutrients. But we didn’t stop there. We added a wide range of whole food ingredients like sprouted seeds and grains, and micronutrients, all of which naturally increase bio-availability.

High Digestibility

Your dog will thrive eating the highest quality ingredients

Here’s how: Digestibility is a food’s ability to be absorbed by the body. Some foods have low digestibility due to their ingredients or include ingredients such as fillers, that do not support wellness the way whole foods do. A benefit of eating high-quality, whole foods is that they are absorbed at a very high rate. Because we use such great ingredients, our tests show that Wisdom™ is 97% digestible. When adjusted for nutrient loss through urine, the testing shows that Wisdom™ remains 89% digestible.

Why was Wisdom™ created?

A Holistic View of a Healthy Dog

One of the easiest and most effective ways we can help our dogs to achieve health, wellness, and longevity is by the food we choose to provide for them. We believe a dog’s health and wellness should be looked at holistically. If a dog isn’t thriving and showing the most common signs of wellness, it may be their food, some of its ingredients, or how it’s prepared. A balanced diet that includes whole foods is a great way to provide the nutrients to meet a dog’s dietary needs.

100% Healthy Goodness

Wholesome nutrition is what your dog needs and Wisdom™ delivers. This veterinary formulated dog food helps enhance and preserve their quality of life by being packed only with nutritionally complete ingredients. That means no corn, wheat, soy, legumes, artificial flavors, or artificial preservatives.

How is Wisdom™ made?

Riverstone: Where it’s Made

To make Wisdom™ right, we opened our own plant (we call it a “craftory”) in the heart of Maryland farmland. Then we hired a team of like-minded experts in animal science, and handcrafted Wisdom™ to ensure absolute control over quality.

Riverstone was built using the most sustainable setup in terms of water, waste, and energy. And, since opening, we’ve implemented an Environmental Management System (EMS) that’s aimed at increasing transparency into the sustainability structure, reducing environmental impacts, and increasing operational efficiency.

We’re serious about Sustainability at Riverstone

At Riverstone, we’ve planted a community garden, use a custom-designed dehydrator to collect cooked fat and grease for other companies to re-purpose for applications like soaps and biodiesel, and have a zero food waste policy. Sustainability is at our core, and it shows at Riverstone.

SQF Certified

Following a comprehensive audit conducted in July 2021, Riverstone is now certified to the Safe Quality Food (SQF) Edition 9 for Pet Food Safety. All aspects of the food safety program have been audited and verified to certify the rigorous food safety program requirements that support the internationally renowned benchmarking system, The Global Food Safety Initiative or GFSI. Riverstone will be audited annually to ensure ongoing compliance and integrity.

SQF certification consists of three steps, conducted by a certified auditor, in which the goal is to demonstrate thorough implementation of food safety and quality management systems. Riverstone’s food safety program follows the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). Their ongoing safety measures and best practices include:

  • Separation of Raw Processing and Finished Goods
  • Current Good Manufacturing Practices
  • Ingredient tracing
  • Standard operating procedures
  • Test and Hold Procedure
  • Finished products go through an x-ray machine to monitor for metals or foreign objects before distribution

Rivermont: Proudly Solar Powered

One of our Virginia poultry farmers, David Hughes, takes pride in his work, and that means we can take pride in ours. In 2016, David embraced solar power to 100% run his farm. As a green alternative to fossil fuels, solar power has zero byproducts or pollutants, which makes solar systems ideal for keeping livestock comfortable and healthy.

Producing 172 kilowatts of energy creates a positive environmental impact of over 168 tons of offset CO2, 355 barrels of unused oil, and nearly 4,000 trees saved.
