Take a look at PPN’s picks for the week:
Just Like Homemade
Caru Pet Food presents Daily Dish Broths for dogs and cats. The savory, vet-formulated broths are made in the United States with limited ingredients that are natural and 100 percent human-grade, according to officials. The broths come in three flavors: pumpkin, chicken and beef. Prepared in small batches without garlic, onion, MSG, added colors or preservatives, the broths are also GMO, corn and soy free. Daily Dish Broths can be served as a treat, used as toppers or as a nutritional enhancement for dry kibble, freeze-dried or dehydrated pet food. Not only can the broths help pets that need additional hydration, they can also increase appetite appeal for picky eaters, according to officials. To preserve freshness and make them easy to serve and store, the products are packed in Tetra Pak cartons, which are made from up to 59 percent paper, a renewable source.
Emerald Pet Products introduces the flavor Pumpkin + Blueberry to its line of plant-based Pumpkin Harvest chew treats. Pumpkin Harvest oven baked, low-fat treats are made using pumpkin puree as the first ingredient, and do not contain meat, poultry or fish proteins, according to company officials. The pumpkin-shaped treats also do not include wheat, corn, dairy or soy. The treats, which are made in the United States with U.S. ingredients, do not include artificial ingredients, colors or flavors and no added sugars, sweeteners or salt, officials noted. Other flavors include: Pumpkin + Apple, Pumpkin + Chia and Pumpkin + Sweet Potato.
Power in Powder
Rogue Pet Science offers its new Pumpkin Pro for dogs, created to fix diarrhea. The product, which comes as a powder, contains human-grade organic pumpkin. Rogue Pet Science sources organic U.S. grown pumpkin, while ensuring no skin or seeds are used. Pumpkin Pro combines the treatment that people want from a pumpkin-based product for their dog’s loose stools with a product worthy of daily nutritional consideration, according to officials. The company includes fermented organic turmeric and fermented organic ginger ingredients in conjunction with pumpkin. Turmeric, which contains a compound called curcumin, is proven to boost immunity, reduce inflammation and help arthritis, according to officials. Ginger is a digestive aid full of antioxidants, officials further noted.
