iVet® Healthy Gourmet™ Canine Formulas contain only Whole Chicken Meat with no chicken or poultry by-products. Many national brands contain chicken or poultry by-product meal consisting of the heads, feet, and viscera of poultry. These are less digestible sources of protein. Because we use no by-products, iVet Healthy Gourmet Formulas offer excellent digestibility and less clean up after your pet.
There’s no wheat in our formulas because wheat is one of the top three ingredients in pet foods causing food allergies. Our diets contain whole grains like Rice, Oatmeal, and Barley, which are better carbohydrate choices to eliminate possible allergic reactions. Oatmeal is an excellent carbohydrate, fiber, thiamine, and vitamin E source but is not widely used in pet food due to its cost.
Our formulas do not contain Soybean Meal. Soybean meal provides a less expensive plant source of protein. Whole meat is the best source of protein and creates proper amino acid profiles for canine nutrition. Soy ingredients also have a reputation as an allergen.
iVet Healthy Gourmet Formulas utilize Chicken Fat which is the same quality grade used in human foods. This helps give the food the great taste dogs love. It also provides the essential fatty acids that are a necessary component of canine nutrition. We have guaranteed high levels of Omega-6 and Omega-3 Fatty Acids for excellent skin and hair coat conditions. Our sources for our Omega-3 Fatty Acids used in iVet foods include Fish Meal and Flaxseed.
Our iVet® Healthy Gourmet™ Feline Formulas, like our Canine Formulas, were developed with veterinarians in order to deliver veterinary quality nutrition for your cat. We provide your cat with nutrient dense ingredients necessary for long-term health and vitality. We use only whole chicken meat for our main protein source. This gives your cat the best protein and amino-acid profile along with the excellent digestibility.
iVet Feline Diets are low in ash and magnesium to promote a healthy urinary tract and bladder with a balanced urine pH.
