While the top five ingredients of a given dog 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.
