Feeding is fundamental to the well-being and quality of life of the furry, but how to choose the best dog food?The veterinarian is his great partner in the decision, after assessing the profile, age and nutritional needs of the animal, but it is nice to understand the composition of each product line to make the best choice.
BitCão has chosen a ration that offers numerous benefits to its best four-legged friend:Farmina N & D Grain Free introduces the most modern concept of healthy food, without grains or transgenics and with mouthwatering flavor options.
The Farmina N & D Grain Free for Dogs Ration formula, developed with high digestibility raw material and high nutritional value, is based on the concept of the use of natural and functional foods, as well as on nutritional balance and bioavailability of food, which allows the nutrients of all ingredients act together in a positive way, without overriding each other.Thus, the body of your animal will really benefit, making the most of the food to grow and stay healthy.
Farmina N & D Grain Free Ration for Dogs has 70% of products of animal origin, super premium;30% of fruits, vegetables and minerals and 0% of grains, cereals and transgenics.
An important highlight is that Farmina feeds undergo tests of acceptance, palatability, absorption and medicinal effectiveness without cruelty.The efficiency of the products is evaluated in collaboration with veterinary doctors, universities and in animals that already present certain disease, never inducing diseases.This means more health to your furry without causing suffering to others.
Another difference is that the 7.5kg and 10kg bags of Farmina N & D Ration have a valve that prevents air from entering the packaging, guaranteeing the maintenance of the original formulation and avoiding insects and humidity, which contribute to the proliferation of fungi and bacteria.
Types of rations and their differences:
There are a multitude of brands and flavors of food in the market, from the most economical, called “combat ration”, to super premium – not to mention the veterinary prescription, indicated for hairy with some disease, such as diabetes, kidney problems, etc.
The main difference between the economic, premium and super premium rations is the quality of the raw material, responsible for the digestibility, that is, how much the gastrointestinal tract can absorb from the nutrient.When this does not happen, there may be damage to the animal’s health, which does not feel satiated and has larger stools.The animals take advantage of about 77% of the simpler and cheaper rations.Already the digestibility and use of super premium rations can exceed 92%.
What are the differentials of super premium rations?
- Fixed formulation;
- High digestibility;
- High availability of nutrients;
- High nutritional density;
- Main focus on quality of ingredients (better and more expensive);
- Sold in specific places;
- Manufacturers disseminate information and educational materials to the public;
- Guaranteed through animal testing and according to recognized protocols.
To find out if the feed is high in digestibility, check the ingredients in the package:animal proteins (beef, chicken, turkey, sheep, etc.) are digested more easily than vegetable protein sources such as soy and gluten.Another tip:see if the manufacturer specifies the ingredients.Flour of poultry, for example, is different from chicken flour.
Proteins and vitamins, essential for the development and maintenance of health, also vary.Feeding rations include in their formulation several functional ingredients, that is, sources of nutrients beneficial to the health of our furry:
- Glucosamine and Chondroitin: Help Keep Your Joints Healthy
- L-Carnitine:preserves lean muscle mass and stimulates the mobilization of body fat, leading it into the mitochondria, which causes the body to use fat as a source of energy before carbohydrates. It also has antioxidant action in the body;
- FOS (fructooligosaccharides):it contributes to the growth of good bacteria in the intestine and better fermentation of the food bolus.
Finally, many manufacturers still use controversial genetically engineered (GM) grains that can cause allergies, resistance to antibiotics, and trigger health problems with long-term use in their formulations.
It is very important to familiarize yourself with the label and always analyze it when researching new options for the furry.After all, do not you also look at the nutritional information table of some foods before you buy?
