BETTER HEALTH PAWS DOWN
Research has shown that like for humans the right balance of quality nutrients & ingredients make pets healthier. But dogs and cats nutritional needs are different than humans, and creating a complete and balanced diet more complex.
COMPLETE & BALANCED NUTRITION
Complete & balanced nutrition means your dog or cat is getting all the essential nutrients they need in the correct amounts and correct ratios for optimal health based on the nutritional levels established by AAFCO (regulatory body for pet food in Australia)
Essential nutrients are classed as Protein, Fats, Carbohydrates, Vitamins, Minerals and Water. The balance of nutrients required differs between dogs and cats and will change over the course of their lives.
MEAL MULTI SUPPLEMENTS
Fresh ingredients alone can lack certain vitamins and minerals or quantities used may not provide the correct levels needed by your dog or cat. So seemingly healthy homemade diets when fed over a sustained duration can actually cause major health implications.
