In nature, dogs will eat vegetation when preferred foods are scarce, with 1-2% of the total diet consisting of plant matter. Accordingly, Vegetables ‘n’ Fruit or Green Tripe Patties need only play a small or infrequent role in the total diet of normal, healthy domestic dogs.
Cats are strict carnivores, requiring animal based foods.
Specific ratios of Vegetables ‘n’ Fruit can provide therapeutic advantages for pets that have diabetes, pancreatic, liver or advanced kidney disorders. Some dogs may require extra fibre in their diet to keep them satisfied while on a weight loss program. Fibre in Vegetables ‘n’ Fruits and Beef Green Tripe influences the rate of passage of food through the intestine by increasing or slowing stomach emptying, but specific effects vary with the amount fed. Excessive dietary fibre is associated with adverse effects such as the production of loose stools; flatulence, increased stool volume and frequency, and decreased dietary caloric density.
Ingredients: Finely ground romaine lettuce, loose-leaf lettuce, bok choy, celery, carrots, apples, pears, blueberries
Every dog or cat should be evaluated and fed as an individual. Selecting foods based on your pet's age, life stage, living environment and level of activity aids in promoting optimal nutrition throughout life. Vegetables 'n' fruit may be fed once a day, several times per week or not at all. It may be fed alone or mixed with whole animal or beef offal patties.
