Find out just what goes into your pet’s food
Just like our own food there are varying levels of quality of pet foods and some are better for our pets than others.
If you believe that good nutrition makes for a better life then you might want to learn more about the ingredients in pet foods.
Why you should you consider hypoallergenic pet food?
Martin from Pet Supplies UK below describes what goes into some brands of regular pet food:
“Some manufactures put a lot of artificial additives in their food, sometimes masking poor ingredients to increase palatability and to keep the price down.
“Wheat and soya are cheaper foods, but in the long run they can cause all sorts of digestive issues or, even allergies in some pets. Glycerine, salt, sugars & propylene glycol are used to artificially flavour the food, hiding the truth. Colour is for your benefit alone.
“Pets that don’t currently show signs of poor nutrition on this sort of diet long-term, could eventually develop digestive, or health issues,” Martin concludes.
Martin’s tips on things you can watch out for on the label:
- ‘Meat and animal derivatives’ – this term is not giving clearly outlined ingredients in your pet’s food. You should be thinking, what do they have to hide? Would you put food in your mouth that was not disclosed clearly or properly to you?
- ‘Cereals’ – this almost certainly means wheat so why not just put wheat? Is this because the ingredients and values change from batch to batch, dependant on grain prices around the world?
- ‘Vegetable protein extracts’ – another loose term, but why not clarify what particular vegetables are used? Is it because some vegetables are used when they are cheap to buy, necessitating a changing menu for price? Hmm…
Doesn’t your pet deserve better? Especially, if it improves their long-term health and subsequently maybe even helping to avoid costly vet bills further down the line.
Based in Yate, Bristol, Pet Supplies UK’s range of hypoallergenic food contains no wheat, soya, glycerine, salt, sugars, colours, or other unhealthy additions.
Feeding Pet Supplies UK’s ‘Hypoallergenic’ or ‘Grain-free’ pet food to your dogs and cats will give them perfectly balanced nutrition, while omitting the unnecessary low nutrition or, higher risk ingredients.
Our products are clearly labelled giving transparency and you a greater knowledge of what you are feeding your pet.
And it doesn’t have to break the bank either. Monthly food consumption for a small cat eating our ‘Hypoallergenic’ range costs as little as £2.37, or £4.70 for ‘Grain-free’. For example: a Cocker Spaniels’ monthly food consumption would be £13.13 for our ‘Hypoallergenic’ food, or £13.95 for ‘Grain-free’.
