The world of pet food is ever-changing. As we better understand the types of nutrition our companion pets need, new types of recipes are always evolving.
Wet foods for dogs and cats are great for a lot of reasons. They help enormously to keep your furry family friend well hydrated. Cats often do not drink enough water which is important in the prevention of urinary crystals, so wet food is one way to get more water into them. Dogs and cats can both be very fussy eaters and using wet food as a topper can help encourage them to nosh into their dry kibble. Alternatively, good quality wet food can be used exclusively for complete nutrition without the need to add kibble.
Recently, Petcurean has developed a new line of NOW FRESH® wet food recipes. But what, you might ask, is the big deal? What is so different about these recipes?
First of all, NOW FRESH wet food is packaged in Tetra Pak® cartons. Already well known in the human food industry, Tetra Pak cartons are environmentally friendly; 65% of the carton material is made using renewable resources and it is 100% recyclable. They are easy to open, with no sharp edges, and reclose for easy storage in the fridge.
All NOW FRESH wet food recipes are grain and gluten free, with no GMO’s, no byproduct meals or rendered ingredients, no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives, and no antibiotics or added growth hormones.
What is inside the box is what makes these recipes even more unique. You might see some ingredients you haven’t seen before in a wet food:
- Pork Plasma – is a source of protein, vitamins and minerals including iron, sodium, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and chloride. It is easily digested, supports immune system function and also helps with producing the proper texture.
- Cod, chicken and pork liver – excellent and very palatable sources of protein and Omega 3 fatty acids. Also natural sources of Vitamin A & D.
- Bone Broth – highly palatable and a source of collagen. It encourages moisture intake, especially for cats, and adds a meaty flavour pets love.
- Peppermint and Parsley – added to our new Small Breed recipes to help with fresh breath.
The new lineup of NOW FRESH wet food recipes also include some new textures. The ever popular pâtés and stews are still available, but added to those will be some shredded recipes for dogs and a new minced recipe for cats. Plus, there are recipes tailored especially for small breed dogs. Check out these innovative new recipes here!
“I was talking to the people at the local dog store and they suggested that I try NOW FRESH™ Grain Free and gave me a sample bag. His appetite is up, his coat looks amazing and he has even more energy at day care. We are so impressed with the food, thank you!”
