Natural Diet for Dogs
Our Impressive Ingredient List to Support a Natural Diet for Dogs
We understand the importance of giving your pets the best possible nutrition. As such, our formulation closely resembles the ancestral natural diet for dogs, in order to ensure that they get the nutrition that they need from natural ingredients that are steam cooked in their own juices without added water. This ensures maximum flavour and optimal nutritional value.
A large portion of the ingredients is sourced right here in South Africa, including locally grown fruits and vegetables that are full of goodness and flavour.
Protein is the main ingredient, as should be the case in a natural diet for dogs. The poultry included provides easily digestible animal protein and fats for energy. The polyunsaturated fatty acids from the poultry provide optimal nutrition for cell functioning, muscle development, and functioning of tissues and nerves. The kibble containing fish provides a range of essential amino acids, including omega-3 fatty acids, which are important for immune system support, cardiovascular health, brain functioning, and joint protection.
When it comes to red meats, which are included as part of the natural diet for dogs, few things can beat the tastiness of Karoo lamb. The other red meats forming part of the formulation are also game meats for the provision of essential proteins, minerals, and vitamins. The protein profile is then completed with the inclusion of eggs, which are full of vitamins A and B12, iron, fatty acids, folate, amino acids, selenium, and riboflavin.
The kibble includes a range of plant-based ingredients as well, closely resembling the ancestral diet for dogs. The cranberries forming part of the formulation are included for the provision of polyphenols to support cardiovascular health and blood pressure management. Cranberries are also packed with flavonoids and antioxidants. We include oranges as good sources of vitamin C to support brain functioning and vitamin A for eyesight support.
The peas included are gluten-free sources of carbohydrates that are full of fibre for keeping your pets satisfied. Of course, peas are also superb protein sources. Apples are included for taste, fibre, vitamins, and minerals, such as potassium. Our formulation furthermore contains butternut for vitamins and minerals to provide support for kidney health.
Our ingredient list is impressive by any standard, proven by the fact that the formulation also includes carrots, chickpeas, probiotics, rooibos derived antioxidants, sugar beet pulp, rosemary, flaxseed and fish oils, milk thistle, peppermint, marine algae, and oregano.
Carrots provide vitamin A and beta-carotene, thus aiding in the strengthening of eyesight, while chickpeas provide dietary fibre for healthy digestion. The probiotics are natural and beneficial bacteria required for good absorption of nutrients, the rooibos derived antioxidants help with brain and memory performance, and the rosemary provides antioxidants for fighting the effects of free radicals. The sugar beet pulp and inulin are the sources of prebiotics, which also aids in digestive health, while the encapsulated fatty acids help to reduce stool odours.
The marine algae are also good sources of amino acids, minerals, and vitamins, while the fish oils help with healthy coats. Milk thistle provides nutrients for liver support, peppermint helps with bile production, and oregano aids in digestive health.
With such a comprehensive ingredient list, you have the assurance that our kibble contains everything needed for a healthy and natural diet for dogs.
