What Can You Expect in High-Quality Dog Food?
Pets, similar to their human companions, require optimal nutrition as relevant to their species. As such, when buying our high-quality dog food, you expect the kibble to contain ingredients that provide nutrition that is appropriate for your pet’s dietary needs.
We know that words such as “high-quality”, “optimal nutrition”, “perfect formulation”, and the likes are often used in the marketing of dog food. However, knowing exactly what goes into our brand’s formulation and how the kibble is prepared will help you understand why we use the phrase “high-quality dog food” to describe our kibble.
Prepared in Their Own Juices
Instead of adding water and using cooking methods that can cause the loss of nutrients, we steam cook the combination of ingredients in their own juices. This ensures maximum flavour and minimal loss of nutrients during the preparation of the kibble.
We have several control measures in place to ensure that from the selection of raw ingredients, right through to the cooking, packaging, storage, and delivery to the distribution points, all these processes are in accordance with strict quality standards.
High-Quality Dog Food Equals a Superb Range of Nutritious Ingredients
Digestibility is important to ensure that your animal receives the best possible nutrition. If the kibble is not very digestible, many nutrients go to waste. As such, our combination of ingredients supports digestibility and thus maximum absorption of nutrients in the body. The ingredient list is impressive by any standard, some of which are briefly noted below.
We don’t just make sure that 60% of the formulation consists of protein. No, only high-quality proteins form part of the formulations. Our formulations include poultry, red meat, fish, and eggs for a perfect balance.
The turkey and duck provide essential amino acids for muscle nourishment, while the chicken provides for energy and fatty acids for cell functioning, as well as nourishment for muscles, tissues, and nerves. Karoo lamb, game, and ostrich liver also form part of the protein mix to ensure that your pet gets essential minerals, such as iron, zinc, and phosphorus, from our kibble. We also include eggs as excellent sources of highly digestible protein – packed with amino acids, iron, folate, selenium, and vitamins A and B12, as well as fatty acids.
All the goodness, energy, and nutrition required come from grain-free sources. The ingredient list is comprehensive and includes, but is not limited to:
- Cranberries – help with blood pressure management.
- Oranges – for brain functioning and vision.
- Peas – gluten-free source of fibre, carbohydrates, and protein.
- Apples – flavour, vitamins, and minerals.
- Butternut – nutrients in support of kidney functioning.
- Carrots – for coat condition and eyesight.
- Chickpeas – fibre, proteins, vitamins, and minerals for digestive support.
- Flaxseed and fish oils – omega-3 fatty acids for healthy skin and coat.
- Marine algae – rich source of protein, minerals, and vitamins.
- Milk thistle – antioxidant.
- Oregano – antioxidant.
- Peppermint – stimulates the stomach and bile production.
With such a balanced blend of ingredients in the correct ratios, cooked in their own juices in a world-class factory, we make true on our statement of producing high-quality dog food.
