One of the biggest issues dog and cat owners face is dealing with food allergies. Primarily, these reactions are caused by corn, wheat, and soy. Some pets, however, are allergic to a myriad of other grains, and sometimes even certain animal proteins.
Most frequently, customers seem to turn to products like Natural Balance, which markets their "Limited Ingredient Diets", or L.I.D.'s for allergic pets.
Unfortunately, all of Natural Balance's L.I.D.'s feature potato or sweet potato as the first ingredient.
This brings us full circle to one of the biggest problems with the modern pet diet, and it's probably the nutrition problem that we're most focused on targeting here at Joey's Pet Outfitters. And that problem is too much grain, carbohydrates, and sugar in the diet, and not enough quality meat.
Thankfully, one of our favorite food makers has released an entire line of grain free, limited ingredient diets with meat as the first ingredient. In fact, they all include far higher meat levels than any food that includes exotic proteins a la duck, venison, and fish.
Our lineup of Canine Caviar Holistic Grain Free products includes Wilderness (venison), Open Sky (duck), and Wild Ocean (herring, yup, a single-protein herring formula!): each of them containing only split peas, lamb fat (allergic reactions are in response to proteins, not fat), and sun-cured alfalfa.
Peas and alfalfa help lower the glycemic index relative to foods that utilize potatoes or sweet potatoes. This helps prevent chronic inflammation (which can also cause allergies, and definitely will exacerbate them), cancer, diabetes, pancreatitis, liver problems, and obesity.
Because of the high meat levels, you'll see a healthier pet, and you'll feed a lot less of Canine Caviar Holistic Grain Free than any potato-loaded food out there. And usually these grain or potato-based foods cost just as much, even though you'll feed a lot more of them to fill up your dog.
You owe it to your dog or cat (especially cats, which are entirely carnivorous) to give these foods a try.
