How to choose dry cat food?
The fact that ready-made foods are very different, and “not all of them are equally useful”, at that time, none of our compatriots did not suspect.
It took quite a bit of time, and the situation has changed beyond recognition: Russian pet stores have long ceased to yield their Western “classmates” in the range of products presented. Now the main task of the cat owner is not to get lost among the beautiful packages in the zoo supermarket and make the right choice.
First, you should decide what “the right choice” means. Here everything depends on the owner’s attitude to their pet. If the main goal is to save money, then you can choose the first inexpensive food that comes along. However, in this case, it is worth considering that by saving on the animal’s nutrition, you risk spending much more on its veterinary care. If the main task is to preserve the health and excellent appearance of your pet for many years, then the choice of food should be approached more seriously and thoughtfully.
The first step is to collect information about the manufacturer. There is no secret that many companies that produce ready-made pet food have long been owned by multinational corporations, and the goal of the latter is to get extra profits from everything they produce, including the sale of feed. The volume of production of such companies is growing exponentially, advertising of their products is aggressive and Intrusive – it is understandable, the capture of markets is impossible without this…
However, I would like to elaborate on other types of companies – those who do not want to increase production volumes at the expense of product quality, because they value their good name and the trust of customers. One of them is the German company “Bosch Tiernahrung” (“Bosch Tiernahrung”). For more than fifty years, this family-owned company has been producing only pet food on the market.
What is the advantage of family-owned feed production companies? It’s very simple: family business owners can afford to pay more attention to the product being produced than to the value of their company’s shares. Such enterprises are created by true animal lovers; everything is done with the soul – not with a calculator in hand. The family business does not seek sky-high profits from sales, it relies on the trust of customers and the constancy of demand. This is achieved through careful selection of ingredients and strict quality control of the finished product. The owners of the family business would rather give it up than sacrifice quality for profit at the expense of their good name!
The next step is to study the composition of the feed. A cat is an obligate predator, so meat should be in the first place in the list of ingredients. It is not bad if the food contains components that reduce the pH of the urine and prevent urolithiasis, which so often occurs in cats who receive an unbalanced diet.
Elite cat food “Sanabelle” produced by “Bosch Tirnarung” has a very attractive composition-meat is the main component of diets. Cranberries and blueberries are added to all feeds, which have a positive effect on the cat’s urogenital system and visual acuity. Meat components of the feed “of Sanabelle” certified for human consumption.
In an effort to satisfy the most refined needs of furry gourmets, the company “Bosch” tries to diversify the line of “Sanabelle” with animal feeds of different ages with different taste preferences. This year, the Sanabelle line will include food for adult cats with ostrich meat. The advantage of ostrich meat is its low calorie content, low cholesterol, a rich set of trace elements, and a healthy profile of fatty acids. Nutritionists believe that ostrich meat has a high nutritional value, due to its high protein content and low fat content.
…So what kind of food can be rightfully called “elite”? Without a doubt, it is the one that successfully combines family traditions with the highest quality requirements. And “Sanabelle” from “BOSH Turnaround” not only falls under the category of “elite”, but also takes pride of place in their series. Because the main value of “Bosch” is the consumer’s trust, and it is impossible to buy it.
