The carnivore nature of our four-legged family members is our guide in developing our all-natural scientifically researched food. Dogs in their natural state almost exclusively consume meat and don’t require a diet containing a high level of carbohydrates. Pursuing this philosophy we developed the innovative line N&D Pumpkin, a Grain-Free food with a high percentage of animal ingredients (over 60%), pumpkin, and vegetables that have beneficial
Why Pumpkin: Pumpkin is a delicious and healthy vegetable that contains unique nutritional features and multiple beneficial properties:
- Acts as a Digestive Aid
- Has a Low Glycemic Index
- Is a source of Beta-carotene (Vitamin A) and other natural antioxidants
- Supports the immune system
- Active against free radicals resulting also in an anti-carcinogenic effect
- Promotes cardiovascular system protection
- Regulates intestinal motility
- Provides an anti-inflammatory effect
Our N&D Pumpkin Formula is a new Grain-Free line born in Italy with unique nutritional characteristics:
- Long-lasting vitamins: Thanks to our vacuum coating system, a unique technology that allows us to include vitamins at a lower temperature after the cooking process, ensures the entire nutritional value of the vitamins we use are still bioavailable in our finished kibble.
- Packaged under a Protective Atmosphere: By introducing Nitrogen (a gas naturally present in the air) into our bags of kibble we can remove any oxygen, (which is responsible for the process of oxidation) that is present. This technology is widely used in the human food industry because it preserves all of the nutritional features of food while keeping it as fresh as if it was just cooked.
