Your pet needs 6 classes of nutrients: Protein, Fat, Carbohydrates, Vitamins, Minerals and Water. They get these from the ingredients in their food. When the quality of those ingredients increases, so will the digestibility and nutrient bioavailability.
Let’s look at copper as an example. Although it’s considered a “trace” need, your pet requires copper in its diet to aid in red blood cell formation, protein metabolism and iron absorption. Pretty important mineral, right?
So what’s the difference between your pet eating a few pre-1982 pennies, copper sulfate, copper proteinate or spinach? Cost (and absorption)!
Lower quality ingredients are harder for your pet’s body to process and that results in poor digestibility (lower absorption rates) of the nutrients they need. When this happens, pets end up eating higher quantities of kibble which in turn leads to their bodies working harder to absorb, digest and filter the nutrients. It’s a bad cycle that can impact their health!
At Guardian Pet Food Company, we believe the best ingredients from nature should be in your pet’s food. Nothing more, nothing less! This is why we only use 22 ingredients from nature and no synthetics and no artificial colors, flavors or processing aids. Our MoRE Canine Food Bar – Beef and Chicken Recipe is over 90% digestible. How does that compare with your pet’s current food?
