California Natural

California Natural – Pure and Simple
Imagine a pet food that lets you apply your high standards for food selection to the cherished pet in your life. The California Natural Pet Food line does just that. Pure and simple is the underlying philosophy behind these products that offer a complete and balanced food source for all dogs, while being specially formulated to suit the dietary needs of pets that cannot tolerate typical pet food ingredients. The makers of California Natural understand that your pet’s quality of life is a fundamental priority, so they have created a simple yet highly effective way of fulfilling this priority. Through their commitment to enhancing the well-being and vitality of your pet, they have developed a recipe that includes lean meats, essential vitamins and key minerals – and what they don’t put in their food is just as important as what they do include. California Natural Dog Food does not contain wheat, corn, soy and byproducts or artificial preservatives, flavours and colours. A sample of what they do put in includes omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids for a healthy coat and skin and vitamin E for its antioxidant properties. This is particularly valuable to pets prone to itchy skin. Taurine is another key ingredient of California Natural. Recent scientific research shows that Taurine offers an essential amino acid beneficial to proper eye and heart function, along with nervous and reproductive system health benefits.

Today, Red Dog Blue Kat raw pet food is produced in a state of the art, 7200 sq. ft. food manufacturing facility that rivals many of the food producers creating products for human consumption.

Solid Gold

Solid Gold Health Products for Pets – helping you feed and care for Your Pet

Solid Gold takes a holistic approach to animal nutrition, which involves the consideration of all the individual body systems. By using natural, chemical free ingredients, and avoiding substances which are now known to cause harm to animals, they have been able to devise a diet which maintains optimum health and vitality, and promotes an enhanced state of general wellbeing which facilitates increased resistance to disease.

The top three causes of allergies in dogs are; wheat, corn and soy. Solid Gold uses none of these. They use barley, to help keep the arteries clear; amaranth (called the grain of the future by nutritionists), millet and ground brown rice. Solid Gold does not use animal or poultry fats, but instead uses flaxseed oil, which contains Omega 3 and 6 Essential Fatty Acids. These fatty acids are vital for a diverse range of body functions, such as cell membrane formation and function, brain development, and for the functioning of the cardiovascular and circulatory systems, immune cell function, inflammatory response and the organ systems.

The primary difference between the Adult, Puppy foods are the ratios of the ingredients, they are all based on the same formula.

To increase the digestibility of the food while supplying essential vitamins and minerals, Sold Gold recommends feeding their SeaMeal Supplement in conjunction with the food. Solid Gold covers the full range of pet products including:

  • dry foods
  • canned foods
  • biscuits and treats
  • supplements
  • health and coat care

 

All products are marked with an expiry or best before date. Learn more about Solid Gold Pet Foods or visit one of our conveniently located stores and speak to one of our knowledgeable team members.

The line includes air-dried cuisine, moist cuisine, treats and oral health care chews.

The peak of health for cats and dogs depends on the sustenance they get from ‘RAW MEAT’ nature’s true diet and ZiwiPeak is the equivalent to a true raw diet. The ZiwiPeak range is formulated on the same balance of meat ingredients – meat, heart, liver, kidney, cold washed green tripe and bone, plus natural vitamins and minerals, that cats and dogs would find by hunting in the wilderness.

Animals fed on ZiwiPeak’s air-dried or moist food demonstrate a substantial improvement in their general health and well-being, with clear eyes, healthy coats and skin, healthy gums, long-term joint health, and huge energy levels. Because the ZiwiPeak range is high in protein and over 95% digestible, the animals eat less, enjoy better weight control, and benefit from less flatulence with less mess to clean up for their owners.

As ZiwiPeak is made from 100% all natural ingredients it also helps to act as a detoxifier for animals, eliminating allergens which may have built up from their previous diet of grain-based foods with all the invariable colours, preservatives and fillers associated with these products.
