Subject: Wellness CORE Fish & Fowl Recipe
Wellness Cat food has introduced a new line of grain free dry food called CORE which is the topic of today's newsletter.
Over the last few years, a number of premium cat food companies have been reformulating their dry foods to be grain free. Grains can contribute to obesity in cats because their bodies are not designed to digest grains.
CORE's ingredients include Deboned Turkey, Deboned Chicken, Chicken Meal, Whitefish Meal and Potatoes.
Deboned turkey is the clean flesh without accompanying bone, derived from the parts or whole carcasses of turkey- exclusive of feathers, heads, feet, and entrails. Deboned turkey is highly digestible, an excellent source of amino acids and a good quality protein.
Deboned chicken is defined similar to deboned turkey.
Chicken meal is the dry rendered (cooked down) product from a combination of clean flesh and skin with or without accompanying bone, derived from the parts of whole carcasses of chicken -- exclusive of feathers, heads, feet, or entrails. Chicken meal is considered to be the single best source of protein in commercial pet foods.
Whitefish meal is an excellent single-source protein. It is also an excellent source of Omega 3 essential fatty acids, which play a vital role in the structures of cell membranes. Essential fatty acids stimulate growth, benefit skin and hair, influence the inflammatory response and affect the development of the nervous system, including the brain.
Potatoes provide B vitamins, carbohydrates, zinc, vitamin C, copper, iron, magnesium, niacin and potassium.
I am looking forward to getting samples of this food to try with my cats. It's comparable to other grain free dry foods like EVO and Serengeti.
I would also like to take this opportunity to let everyone know that we have a new forum devoted to Shelties.
