Know your dog food ingredients!

Know your ingredients!

You may have looked at our dog food ingredients and thought why would anyone include this within dog food? However, all ingredients within serve a purpose, and are not just thrown in for the sake of it, or to be used as a 'filler'. Each ingredient is carefully selected to make sure every bite the dog takes is delicious, beneficial and healthy. 

Listed below are the most asked about ingredients, and a little information as to why they are included 

YUCCA EXTRACT

  Contains components called saponins; these have unusual ammonia-binding capacity. The yucca can pass through the digestive tract unabsorbed and is simply excreted in the faeces. In the excreta, the yucca components bind to ammonia and certain other strong smelling compounds and therefore prevents them from being released into the air, in other words, no more smelly wind problems! 

GREEN TEA

Green Tea contains powerful antioxidants called catechins, which are thought to help reduce the risks associated with coronary heart disease and some cancers.

SWEET POTATO

Contains much more fibre than the average potato, also a fantastic source of vitamin A, as well as rich in vitamins C, B6, and several minerals. A very high quality carbohydrate source, and found mostly within the grain free range. 

BEET PULP

These are a great source of fibre of both long and short chain fibres, simple really! 

PREBIOTIC MOS & FOS

This is included as it encourages growth of friendly bacteria within the intestine, which promotes overall better gastro-internal health!
