- Peas (9%): added protein and fibre source.
- Duck fat (4%): a high quality extremely palatable fat.
- Duck digest (1%): we've coated our food with a blend of duck offal to make it super tasty.
- Sugar beet pulp (1%): a natural blend of digestible and indigestible fibres promoting intestinal health.
- Brewer's yeast (1%): an added protein source, with an excellent B vitamin profile.
- Linseed (1%): provides essential fatty acids.
- Vitamins & Minerals: essential to provide a complete balanced diet.
- Yucca schidigera extract (0.3%): a natural deodorizer.
- Prebiotics MOS (0.1%) and FOS (0.1%): prebiotics to help promote healthy bacteria in the gut.
What else have we put in it?
Additives (per kg): Here are a list of the additives included in the recipe and the functions of these components;
In detail: Vitamin A 18,000IU, Vitamin D3 1,200IU, Vitamin E 135mg. Trace Elements: Ferrous sulphate monohydrate 310mg, Zinc sulphate monohydrate 285mg, Manganous sulphate monohydrate 112mg, Cupric sulphate pentahydrate 40mg, Calcium iodate anhydrous 1.6mg, Sodium Selenite 0.5mg. Amino acids: Taurine 1,100mg, L-Carnitine 500mg.
- Vitamin A: Necessary for vision; growth; immune function; foetal development; cellular differentiation; healthy skin and coat.
- Vitamin D3: Maintenance of mineral status; skeletal development; phosphorus balance; necessary to absorb calcium in the intestine.
- Vitamin E: Defence against oxidative damage.
- Calcium: Necessary for the formation of bone and teeth, nerve transmission, muscle contractions.
- Phosphorus: Required for skeletal structure, DNA, RNA structure; energy metabolism.
- Magnesium: Needed to allow enzymes to function; hormone secretions; nerve cell membrane interface.
- Potassium: Required to allow the nerve impulse transmissions to perform; acid base balance; enzyme reactions; energy metabolism.
- Iron: Required to allow Haemoglobin and myoglobin synthesis; energy metabolism; enzymes in respiration .
- Copper: Necessary to form connective tissue; iron metabolism; blood cell formation and defence against oxidative stress.
- Zinc: Required for enzyme function; protein and carbohydrate metabolism; skin function and wound healing.
- Manganese: Helps enzyme reactions; bone development; cartilage formation; neurological function and carbohydrate and fat metabolism.
- Selenium: Helps the dog's defence against oxidative damage by protecting the cell membrane; improve immune response.
What are the stats?
In detail: Analytical constituents: Crude protein 28.5%, Crude oil & fats 15%, Crude ash 8%, Crude fibres 3%, Omega 6 3%, Calcium 1%, Phosphorus 1%, Omega 3 1%.
- Crude protein 28.5%: protein is the most important component of a dog's diet.
- Crude oils and fats 15%: dogs need a certain amount of fats and oils in their diet, mostly for skin and coat health, but also for proper brain development.
- Crude fibres 3%: fibres promote the passage of food through the gut more efficiently.
- Crude ash 8%: ash contains all our essential vitamins and minerals essential to our health.
- Omega 6 3%: fatty acids to help promote the condition of the coat.
- Omega 3 1%: fatty acids to help promote the condition of the coat.
- Calcium 1%: needed for the formation and maintenance of bones, teeth and healthy gums.
- Phosphorus 1%: together with calcium, phosphorus is required for formation and maintenance of bones and teeth.
