Even if it is just our perception of how lucky and resilient cats are, taking their health seriously is no joke and so all of our cat foods have our Good 4 Life system in them.
That's four, Alltech made patented, trademarked, nutritional products packaged together for our cat food that is EXCLUSIVE to our company. Look up the company, Alltech. They care about animals, you and the environment.
Just like in our dog food, all of our cat brands have Bioplex® minerals.
Let's review minerals 101. Trace minerals such as iron, zinc, copper, manganese and cobalt play a crucial role in pet nutrition. In order to help maintain a healthy coat and skin, balanced growth and optimum disease resistance, pets require a consistent, available and active mineral supply.
To get this, one wants really good minerals that withstand the pet food formulation process and can get through the cats volatile GI (gastrointestinal tract.) We've got them. Alltech's Bioplex® brand organic trace minerals are unique in that they are protected by multiple amino acids and peptides which gets them safely through the volatile GI environment to absorption sites, which prevents loss of these essential trace minerals.
And, it gets better. Bioplex®, trace minerals are proteinated which means they are easily absorbed from the intestine, and more highly retained by your cat's body. This establishes adequate tissue reserves that support disease defense and overall nine "live"ly-ness. New made up word!!
Number "2" supplement in our cat's Good 4 Life, is the same cool prebiotics, that we use in our dog food.
It's called Bio-Mos® and is a natural (derived from the cell wall of a select strain of yeast) solution to intestinal health issues. It promotes good bacteria and builds natural defenses there by maximizing animal performance and profitability. Bottom line, means good gut health.
But now it's time to tell the cats from the dogs – the other 2 supplements in our feline Good 4 life system are different from the canines. I'll give you a hint about one of them. Hate that strong ammonia smell coming from your cat litter box?
We have a solution. Find out in two weeks – next blog.
