DEAR OWNERS of LOVELY PETS
With all honesty we can state that our desire is to always make GENUINE PET FOOD STORY a fully holistic method of caring for the needs of our customers’ pets. For us it means treating one’s body as a whole, as a system of closely related organs, which mutually affect their functioning. In view of the above, we are convinced that the body should be provided with a complete diet of the best quality.
What ingredients are contained in the EMPIRE’s food for dogs?
All products in the EMPIRE’s dog food are very rich in natural ingredients.
We know well that in the process of evolution, the dog’s digestive system has adapted to receive food other than the products of animal origin. However, these are the products of animal origin – that is meat and meat offal, which is rich in minerals and vitamins – that still remain the basic and most desirable components of the animal diet. These ingredients also have extraordinary importance in terms of flavor and high digestibility of food. The recipe of the EMPIRE products is based on a very high content of valuable meat ingredients such as venison, lamb, chicken, turkey, duck, and liver. Moreover, at least 50% of them are FRESH components ( ‘fresh meat’) which give an extraordinary taste to the EMPIRE products.
Being in harmony with the physiological needs of dogs, the content of the meat and offal products of PUPPY GROWTH DIET, PUPPY GROWTH DIET 25+, ADULT DAILY DIET and ADULT DAILY DIET 25+ constitutes 49.5% of the total content of all of the recipes’ ingredients. In the case of the product named SENIOR DIET BALANCED, the meat ingredients and offal constitute over 77% of the content.
The unique technological process that we use in the course of the manufacturing process guarantees that all the ingredients used will keep their nutritional properties.
MINERAL SUBSTANCES, VITAMINS AND PROBIOTICS
VITAMINS AND PROBIOTICS – specially selected mixture of vitamins: A, vitamines of the B, C, D3 and E groups, folic acid, biotin, and minerals in combination with PROBIOTICS, which sources are yeast, provide the dog with the perfectly balanced diet, which, in accordance with the EMPIRE’s Nutritional Programme, allows dogs to live the longer and happier life in excellent condition.
L-CARNITINE – participates in the metabolic process, facilitating the transformation of fats into energy. It also helps reduce the fat stores in a body and the bloodstream. L-carnitine is necessary when its synthesis is prevented by a disease or physiological problems, as well as in the case of very active or obese animals.
CHONDROITIN SULFATE and GLUCOSAMINE – The addition of chondroitin sulphate and Glucosamine in EMPIRE’s foods makes the dogs able to enjoy good physical condition at any stage of life. Chondroitin sulfate and Glucosamine have the beneficial effect on the weakened joints affected by arthrosis, which commonly affects dogs in their adulthood. It helps, at the same time, to reduce the pain associated with this affliction.
0% of GRAIN – ONLY VEGETABLES, FRUITS AND HERBS
The EMPIRE dog food does not contain any grain, which are very often the source of food allergies in dogs. The main source of carbohydrates in our foods are vegetables such as potatoes, green beans, sugar beet, as well as fruits such as pineapple, black currant.
The recipes ofthe EMPIRE products also include the beneficial mix of herbs, which, thanks to the preventive and health-promoting properties, supplements the diet with essential nutritional elements, making it the most optimal. In our recipes, you will find, among other things:
LUCERNE (ALFA-ALFA) – due to the amount of the nutrients it contains, it is called a natural multivitamin as well as the queen of plants. It helps combat and relieve the symptoms of arthritis – has analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects, reduces swelling of the joints, strengthens the musculoskeletal system, improves the operation of the digestive system and supports the treatment of its problems (for example, the constipation), has anti-cancer effects, contributes in the treatment of the bladder and kidney problems, improves the work of brain and the nervous system, has relaxing effects.
ROSEMARY and LUTEIN – these are sources of natural antioxidants. Rosemary is also rich in iron, calcium, and B6 vitamin.
CHICORY ROOT – this is a natural source of inulin (FOS), which is a prebiotic. When it comes to dog feeding, the prebiotics, due to their physiological properties, favourably affect the digestive process. Scientific research also confirms the positive effects of prebiotics on the immune parameters of both peripheral blood and the intestinal epithelium.
BEET PULP and APPLES PUREE – these are great sources of mixed dietary fibers. Fibers changing in the digestive system, produce short-chained fatty acids, which are the only source of energy for the cells in the large intestine, therefore they are essential to its proper functioning. The beet pulp helps maintain the intestine in a good condition, prevents diarrhoea and flatulence. Dietary fiber contained in the apple puree binds and removes the body cholesterol, fats and bile acids. At the same time, by decreasing the cholesterol levels, reduces the risk of heart diseases and gallstones.
YUCCA SHIDIGERA – the extract from this useful plant is the perfect cure for arthritis and rheumatism. It is believed that the cause of these diseases is the accumulation of harmful toxins in the body, and the extract from Jukka helps in removing of them. It also reduces the concentration of nitrogen compounds, stored in the digestive tract, which has a beneficial effect on eliminating the amount of gases and unpleasant odour of animal excrement. In addition, jukka affects the efficient excretion.
BENEFICIAL MIX OF HEBRS AND BERRIES – wolfberries, nettle, dandelion, garden parsley, thistle, alfalfa have beneficial effect on the intestine peristalsis, hair coating, and the overall health of a dog, by strengthening its immune system.
ACIDS OMEGA 3/6
The source of unsaturated fatty acids (EFAS) in the EMPIRE products are salmon oil and flaxseed oil. EFAS are compounds which cannot be produced by the animal body on its own, therefore, it is important to provide them in the pet food. EFAS provide the good condition of skin and hair coating, as well as help deal with allergies, arthritis, kidney or heart diseases and cancer.
All the trace elements necessary in the holistic diet, such as: iron, manganese, zinc, selenium or iodine contained in the EMPIRE dry dog food are of the natural origin or are supplemented as chelates, which are best absorbed by the body.
