Isn’t it just baffling to read some pet food’s ingredients? We surely think so. For this reason, we put a lot of effort into helping you understand our ingredients to put your mind at ease that your pet is consuming only the best quality foods.
It’s about time that we learn to differentiate between beneficial, naturally-derived supplements and unnecessary, potentially unsafe synthetic chemicals found in many other pet foods.
At Doggiecatessen, we only utilize the absolutely necessary supplements to achieve complete and balanced nutrition for your pet. All our supplements are of human-grade quality and have been thoroughly researched to validate their dietary benefits.
Easily. Understood. Supplements.
NATURAL VITAMIN E OIL
We use this all-natural form of Vitamin E because it has the highest absorption rates when compared to synthetic or semi-synthetic versions. Vitamin E is essential for the circulatory system and plays an important role in injury healing and it’s antioxidant properties help protect cells from damage caused by free radicals.
Calcium carbonate supplies our pets with calcium, which is the most abundant mineral in the body and an essential element for healthy metabolic function. In the body, calcium acts as a cell-signalling messenger, serves many functions in neurological processes, and is a vital component of structural proteins such as bone and cartilage. We must add calcium to our Doggiecatessen diet because although there are many calcium rich foods, the amount of calcium present in them is not as high as a dog or a cat requires for their livelihood.
Zinc is an essential trace mineral that is an important component in skin, bones, fur, nails and eyes. It plays a functional role in many bodily processes such as cell reproduction, protein synthesis, and hormonal balance. Many studies suggest that Zinc Picolinate is one of the best-absorbed forms of dietary zinc. We add minuscule amounts of zinc to achieve total nutrition for your pet.
Copper gluconate is derived from gluconic acid and copper carbonate. This form of copper ensures there is an adequate amount of this essential mineral in our diet. As the third most abundant trace mineral in the body, copper is required for proper health and helps protect the cardiovascular, skeletal, and nervous systems. Copper is vital for nerve function, bone growth, and helping process sugars. We add minuscule amounts of copper to achieve total nutrition for your pet.
This essential amino acid is absolutely vital for cats, which is used by the body in the visual pathways, brain, nervous system, and in cardiac function. Unlike dogs, cat’s are unable to synthesize taurine, so it needs to come from a dietary source.
