About our ingredients

All our recipes are packed with healthy foods and functional ingredients to ensure pets have a balanced diet. Below is a description of the benefits and functions that some of our ingredients provide:

Apple

Apple is a source of soluble fibre; this acts as a food source for healthy bacteria within the digestive tract, which aids digestion. Apples are great for weight management as they have a low energy density. The fibre they deliver helps your pet to feel fuller for longer. 

Asparagus 

Asparagus contains aspartic acid and a high amount of potassium, which supports urinary tract health and helps to prevent infections. It’s also a good source of fibre, which aids with digestion by helping food to move through the gut. It’s high in B vitamins which have a range of benefits, but it is especially crucial for supporting metabolism.

Carrot 

Carrot is a good source of vitamin A in the form of beta carotene, which helps to support eye health and vision.

Cranberry

Cranberry is an excellent source of vitamin C, E & K as well as a good source of dietary fibre. When used in a cat’s diets, the valuable contents of the berry may aid the prevention of urinary tract infections.

Mint

Mint has been known for a very long time as a ‘medicinal herb’. The aroma of the herb is thought to activate the salivary glands and also the glands which produce digestive enzymes in the mouth helping to facilitate digestion. It’s also believed that mint helps to soothe the stomach in times of indigestion or inflammation and can help to reduce gas production.

Salmon

Salmon is premium fish rich in Omega-3, DHA, EPA, Protein and B Vitamins. It offers excellent support for everyday health and well-being.

Trout

Trout is naturally rich in Omega-3 in the form of EPA and DHA which help support the immune system, helping to improve skin and coat condition. It contains anti-inflammatory properties which can help support the skin, joints and heart health.
