Pet Food Advocates US Ingredients

pet foodPet food ingredient quality is something pet parents want to be assured of. It’s not always clear who is using what ingredients from where. Spring Naturals, a fresh face in the Performance Pet Products family, has stepped in to advocate for using as many US-sourced ingredients as possible with their line of pet food and treats. Grain, no grain, chicken, fish, New Zealand lamb, organic turkey, kibble and canned – even vitamin supplements come from Western Europe. Nothing from China. That has turned a few heads.

Each recipe is made with real meat, poultry, lamb or fish (salmon) as their first ingredient and whole vegetables, fruits and whole grains. Whole chickpeas, green peas and eggs are added for more protein. Real meat, not meal, is used and high glycemic ingredients like rice, corn, wheat and soy potato starch are not. If you want to know a bit about the science of making good pet food, don’t miss the podcast.

We all love our pets and want to keep them healthy and with us for as long as we can. Feeding pet food that provides optimal nutrition from reputable sources is one way we hope to do that. If you have any questions after you listen to the interview, just ask and I’ll fetch the answers. Oh – there’s a contest too that will help shelters and give a boost to your favorite animal advocate. Listen for details!

Sounds like a great product!  I like Ark Naturals for my treats (my dogs love their sea mobility joint rescue), but may try this for my dogs food needs!

All I can say is thanks for this. Try visiting Southeast Asia and see what's in their feeds.

Though I don't have pets, you have brought up an interesting issue. Do we really know what we get from the food sold on our market? Do we know the beef and port we eat are from and what they had eaten? Are we the target of some kind of giant experiment? We may never know.

Looks like good stuff... makes sense too, healthy diet = healthy pet.

I have a huge collection of cats and dogs ,,,,,,, and the neighbours' when mine "invite" them in through the cat flap. I agree that the dog food smells absolutely revolting (I am a vegetarian) but the biggest dog, 9 years and 40kgs+ loves it so who am I to comment!

This is a really interesting post, Mary. I live in the UK, not the States, so will have to investigate whether it is available here. At present, we feed our whippet half dried food and half tinned food. The tinned food smells revolting to me when I open it, and I would like to find something better. She eats our food (I am on a high protein diet, with a lot of chicken and fish, which suits her). When she realises she is not getting any more from us, she fills up on her own food, but will not touch the tinned food until she's sure there's nothing any better going!

We have always been cautious of what we feed our pets. This product looks like a great nutritional food for animals, without the filler. Thanks for the info Mary1

So happy to see this food in the marketplace. Great interview, good information. Fresh ingredients, thoughtful, healthful. I also appreciate the line based upon calculated nutrition. It's exciting to know good food is available, and we don't have to worry about  all the horrible fillers made in China, that are purchased for the dog foods that claim to be healthy.  I'll be checking out that web-site! Thanks Mary!
