Do you remember the first day you brought your small puppy home? How they tripped over their toys, wagged their tiny tails, and gave you those adorable puppy dog eyes?
In her infinite wisdom, Mother Nature matched the nutrients in whole fish, fowl and game to perfectly meet the dietary needs of dogs and cats.
The grey wolf (Canis lupus) is the ancestor and closest relative of all domestic dogs (Canis lupus familiarius), sharing 97% of their DNA, while the Near Eastern wildcat (Felis silvestris lybica) is the closest relative of domestic cats (Felis silvestris catus).
Despite years of breeding, the internal workings and anatomical capabilities of domestic dogs and cats remain the same as their wild cousins, so it’s no surprise their food requirements remain the same too.
In nature there are no synthetic food supplements, with wolves and wildcats deriving their nutritional needs by consuming prey animals. By eating the ‘whole of the prey’ they are getting protein from the muscle meat, vitamin and minerals from the, liver, kidney and tripe whilst the cartilage and bone deliver calcium and phosphorus.
Our WholePrey foods mirror this natural diet. Our recipes incorporate meat, organs and cartilage or bone in ratios that deliver nutrients naturally and completely, without the need for long lists of synthetic ingredients.
