Based on the prey model, EZComplete premixes contain liver and pancreas as the nutrient and enzyme-packed organs. EZComplete Fur Dogs combines freeze dried bone (calcium hydroxyapatite) and eggshell as sources of calcium. Dogs thrive with a higher bone content in the diet than do cats, and have higher requirement for many minerals. By substituting a percentage of the bone for eggshell calcium, EZComplete Fur Dogs meets the needs of puppies, pregnant dogs, and nursing moms, while keeping a lower overall phosphorus content for senior dogs. Egg yolk, a true nutritional powerhouse, is rich in choline and vitamin E, and also brings almost every nutrient your pet needs. New Zealand green-lipped mussels provide a unique combination of anti-oxidants, anti-inflammatory omega 3s, and are rich in glucosamine and chondroitin, important in joint health. Digestive enzymes bring many benefits, reducing organ stress, improving digestion, and increasing nutrient utilization. Digestive enzymes are an important inclusion especially for those that opt to cook the meat, as cooking eliminates the naturally occurring enzymes in the meat. And while our dogs may not face the same high rates of kidney disease as cats, tragically, one out of every two dogs will be diagnosed with cancer sometime in their life. Thus we view the addition of kale, brussels sprouts, carrots and blueberries a valuable inclusion to the diet, in helping to reduce their cancer risk. Finally, a minimum amount of vitamins and minerals is included to account for what is missing by not feeding whole prey. Above all, you supply the fresh, truly human grade meat. You control the primary ingredient in your dog’s natural diet – and Food Fur Life provides the EZComplete premix that makes it balanced and complete in just one easy step.
