While the top five ingredients of a given cat food provide the consumer with insight
into the nutritional priorities of a pet food maker, they don’t tell the whole story.
Every ingredient plays a critical part, which is why we provide a comparison based
upon eight different quantitative measures. Furthermore, the secret to superior
pet food lies in the formula itself – not only in the ingredients, but also in the
proportions of those ingredients to one another.
The significance of the ratios cannot be understated. Our long-time pet food formulator,
Dr. Jane Bicks, stresses the importance of synergism, or the interaction of ingredients,
because the proper proportions help to maximize the nutritional impact of a formula.
As with any recipe, if you use the wrong ratios, you will get very different results.
With quality ingredients working synergistically with one another, you can be certain
that you’re providing the very best for your companion animal.
