PROMOTION ✴ PETS Beet pulp, rice and corn promote dogs’ happy hormones VITAMINS AND MINERALS FIBRE LOOK FOR: A bre source providing both soluble and insoluble fractions Beet pulp is added to some pet foods as a good source of both soluble and insoluble bre. The soluble bre feeds the friendly bacteria in the large intestine. It also slows the rate of food passage through the gut ensuring substantial time for digestion and absorption of nutrients. Insoluble bre helps an animal to feel satisfactorily full and provides a crunchy texture to the kibbles. A quality- bre source in the correct proportion may help to reduce the incidence of conditions such as diabetes mellitus and obesity. It may also help to prevent constipation and diarrhoea. BEWARE OF: Corn bran, peanut hulls, rice hulls, soybean hulls, oat hulls. LOOK FOR: Antioxidant vitamins and chelated minerals Quality pet-food manufacturers prefer to derive these nutrients naturally where possible and use stable forms that are easily utilised within the body. Vitamin C, E and beta carotene all have powerful antioxidant properties and may help provide protection against the harmful e ect of free radicals. Chelated organic forms of the minerals copper, zinc, iron and selenium are easily absorbed in the gut providing e cient transfer to target areas. Together, these antioxidant vitamins and minerals provide excellent immune system support. BEWARE OF: Menadione (Vitamin K3), sulfate and oxide-based mineral supplements (e.g. zinc oxide, iron oxide) – these are not as well absorbed. included, and this may reduce odour and has powerful natural antioxidant properties.
