What food will be nutritious for cats and dogs?
According to the structure of the digestive system, cats and dogs are more adapted to a diet with a high content of animal origin components. The small volume of the pancreas does not allow domestic predators to digest foods with high carbohydrates index - cereals, rice, potatoes and others. Thus, the higher the content of animal protein in the diet - meat, the higher the nutritional value and digestibility of the food by dogs and cats.
Also, the quality of meat ingredients and the technology of food preparation influence to the nutritional value of dry food. It is desirable to use the technology that will preserve the natural benefits of meat and other ingredients in order to bring it to the body of cats and dogs.
In this regard, holistic food is the food that meets the physiological needs of our pet predators in the best way.
