How can you balance a diet if you are not a big dry dog-feed global organization?
Most of the time we have convinced ourselves, even in vet schools that balancing a diet is rocket science and that there is no way that we can make it happen in a kitchen. It is true that the measurement of nutrients have to be precise, we definitely need to be working with the vet and canine nutritionist for that. The reality is if you are working with whole fresh food, with canine nutritionists and vets, you do not need an extra team of doctors with PHD to balance a diet. Unless you are working with bad quality meat by-products with chemical stabilizers, colors of all kinds, then a team of scientists is needed.
Why starting Furry Kitchen?
About 10 years ago we started to look at the ingredients in dog feed and canned food, and we stopped feeding our dogs dog food again. The laws and regulations allow food processors to put nutshells (poisonous to dogs) and all the kind of inedible things in to the dog feed and called it vegetable fiber or plant products …etc nice terminologies, there are also sort of astonishing facts that are scary to owners when you look at the ingredient list. We work with vets and canine nutritionists to work out a balance diet that are made with high quality human grade meats and vegetables, included certified organic ingredients just like what we eat, formulating it to suit Dogs’ needs, for example a suitable volume of calcium carbonate or calcium citrate and magnesium…etc, a balanced fresh dog food diet is much more bio-available for dog’s digestion system to process and to transform in to energy that is much better than any other diet available.
