Pet 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.
