"You are what you eat" - apply this thinking to dogs with allergies and we're convinced you'll see radical improvements to their health.
"Allergies leave dogs miserable and run down. Common symptoms are hair loss, vomiting, diarrhoea, itchiness and poor coat condition. In New Zealand around 68% of dogs and cats suffer from some form of food allergy." Dr Grant Gifford, Auckland University of Technology.
High Digestibility, Increase Natural Fat & Minimum Ingredients
Extra ingredients such as rice, wheat and corn are all possible causes of allergies in dogs. Dogs consuming mostly carbohydates will produce large smelly stools. While dogs eating mostly uncooked protein will have smaller, firmer stools - a good sign they are efficiently using what they are consuming. K9 Natural aids digestion:
- It includes mostly protein and fat with a small amount of fresh seasonal vegetables and fruits. Increased dietary fat appears to improve skin/coat (NationalResearch Council, USA 2006).
- Green Tripe is added because it is naturally high in probiotics which settle the digestive system. Ingredients are uncooked. Heat processing decreases animal protein digestibility for dogs and cats (Backus et al., 1998; Johnston et al, 1998).
- Nutrient delivery is unhampered by artifical additives and preservatives.
Another powerhouse ingredient contained in K9 Natural is Green Shelled Mussel. Sourced only from New Zealand, Green Shelled Mussel is "Nature's Superfood". Benefits include:
- Powerful anti-inflammatory properties
- Aids joint repair
- High Nutrient density
- Assists digestive health
We recommend K9 Natural Venison and Lamb Green Tripe for pets with allergies to other protein sources. NZ farmed deer offer an iron alternative meat that is a complete protein, meaning it contains all essential amino acids - these are necessary to:
- Maintain a healthy gut
- Make immune boosting B vitamins
- Prevent many health disorders
