Our ingredients are sourced from the United States, Canada, France, Switzerland, India, Finland, Japan, Germany, New Zealand and Scotland. We do not source or purchase ingredients from China or ingredients initially manufactured in China.
Meat sources are USDA and/or FDA-approved, human-grade from food manufacturing facilities. Chicken meal is concentrated and comprised of ground meat and bone. Bone is a natural ingredient that supplies the minerals your pet needs to produce and maintain their own endoskeleton.
Herring consists of the whole fish, ground to a meal.
Hydrolyzed pork is derived from the belly of the hog. It is 97% digestible, contains 80% protein and 12% fat, is low in ash and contains no bone or organs.
The combination of these three proteins produces a balanced mineral and amino acid profile that is ideal for your pet’s health and longevity.
POULTRY FAT is a combination of both turkey and chicken fat and gives your pet a healthy fat variety.
Guar Gum is a non-digestible soluble fiber that is produced from a bean. Soluble fiber is a natural part of your cat’s diet. Tomato Pomace is a fiber source (both soluble and insoluble fiber) that is non-digestible; which is the definition of a fiber. Tomato Pomace has a low pH which promotes digestion in any obligate carnivore and promotes a healthy urinary tract. Psyllium Husk is a soluble fiber found in fruits and some nuts. Because psyllium dissolves in water and forms a gel, it is gentle on a cat’s unique digestive tract. Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) is a non-digestible sugar that acts as a food source for the beneficial bacteria in your pet’s large intestine. The bacteria ingest the FOS by fermentation. A healthy beneficial bacteria colony forms a good defense against harmful bacteria.
DL-Methionine is an essential amino acid that cannot be produced by the body. Therefore, it is crucial that your cat consumes the required amount of methionine each meal to maintain proper health.
AAFCO recommends a minimum of 0.10% taurine in extruded (dry) cat foods. Our cat foods content level of taurine is 0.60%.
