Bow Wow Gourmet Diet blends have been formulated by a veterinarian dietician to include everything that your dog needs.
CHICKEN (bone in) – the highest levels of essential fatty acids. We find chicken to be the best all round meat for dogs. It is a good source of protein and is easily digested by most dogs. The ground bones are a good source of calcium. Bones are living tissues that contain a wide variety of nutrients; vitamins, minerals, proteins, natural antioxidants (enzymes and anti-aging factors), and fats (essential fatty acids). The bone marrow is a highly nutritious mix of blood forming elements, such as iron.
LIVER – full of nutrients; Vitamins A, C, D, E, and K, zinc, manganese, selenium, iron, as well as Vitamins B2, B3, B5, biotin, folacin, B12, choline, and inositol. Liver is a good source of protein and fatty acids, such as omega 3 and omega 6.
EGGS – the perfect protein source. Eggs also contain high levels of calcium and all vitamins except Vitamin C, a high range of fatty acids, lecithin, and various enzymes. The egg yolk, is great for dogs with skin problems, as it contains sulphur containing amino acids, biotin, vitamin A, essential fatty acids and zinc.
CARROTS – rich in Vitamin A, beta carotene and other carotenes. Carrots are a strong antioxidant, containing Vitamins B, C, D, E, K, riboflavin, niacin, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, sodium, and iron. Carrots have been proven to aid in improving eyesight.
MOLASSES – an excellent source of iron, calcium and many other beneficial minerals.
APPLE CIDER VINEGAR – anti-bacterial and anti-fungal; it boosts the immune system. It improves stamina, increases resistance to diseases, prevents common infections, and is therefore helpful for dogs with weakened immune systems. Apple Cider Vinegar breaks down calcium deposits in a dog's joints and remineralizes the bones, and as such it is beneficial for dogs with arthritis and joint problems such as hip dysplasia. Apple cider vinegar also balances digestive enzymes in the body, so it is a good remedy for food poisoning and digestive upsets such as intestinal gas and constipation. It also reduces fecal odors.
PARSLEY FLAKES – besides the benefit of parsley freshening a dog's breath, parsley acts like an antioxidant in that it neutralizes the negative effects of the environment by eliminating toxins and maintains the elasticity of the blood vessels. It is very beneficial for the liver and digestive system. It also reduces stress levels in the endocrine system and provides a re-boot to the immune system. Parsley is a known expectorant, breaking up congestions in all areas of the eyes, nose, and mouth allowing normal function after many different ailments. This may help the mouth of certain breeds to become dryer and reducing their drool, as well as reducing motion sickness during travel.
SUNFLOWER OIL – ultra high-quality sources of fat chosen for their skin & coat properties and are rich in linoleic acid and omega 3 fatty acids!
BEET PULP – an excellent fiber source. The fiber from beet pulp has the benefits of adding bulk and moisture to animal stools while providing an energy source that can improve the health of the colon. Slow to moderately fermentable fiber sources, like beet pulp, are often recommended as one of the best sources of fiber for dogs and cats.
MSM & GLUCOSAMINE – non medicinal amounts for healthy joints and ligaments for active and older dogs. Glucosamine, Chondroitin and MSM are several components that aid in the formation of the cushioning ingredients of the joint fluid, soft tissue and connective tissue areas. These nutrients work together with other macromolecules to make synovial fluid thicker and more elastic. MSM provides more circulation to the affected areas, thus bringing in more of the nutrients that are needed for healthy joints. All the ingredients work together as natural anti-inflammatory to reduce swelling due to injuries or from sprains, strains or over-exertion.
