Skin / coat beauty

Proteins play an important role as they are an essential component of the skin and hair. The hair is made up of 95% protein, of which almost 1/3 is used for skin renewal and hair growth. The role of proteins is therefore fundamental to the beauty of the skin and coat.

Weight control

By promoting satiety and the lean body mass development (including muscle) rather than fat, protein helps dogs and cats maintain a healthy weight. Fibre is also added as well as L-carnitine to help limit fat storage.

High digestive tolerance

A food that is too rich in carbohydrates can be poorly tolerated and cause loose stools and unpleasant odours.
Low carbohydrate levels, well digestible proteins and the addition of functional ingredients (lactobacilli, montmorillonite, sepiolite, etc.) help to maintain good digestive tolerance.

Tartar control

Pentasodium triphosphate supplementation limits tartar formation and contributes to good oral health

Urinary health

By stimulating drinking and promoting naturally acidic urine, protein helps to maintain good urinary health.
A functional ingredient, cynarin, is also added to help dilute his urine.

Kidney function

Reduced phosphorus intake and its digestive chelation by chitosan help maintain healthy kidney function.

Low allergies source

To avoid food allergies, our food does not contain beef, dairy, egg, wheat, corn, gluten or soy (ingredients that can cause food allergies), which reduces the risk of food intolerance.

Joint and muscle support

High protein content and chondroitin and chitosan supplementation contribute to the proper functioning of the musculoskeletal system

Low glycaemic index

A diet rich in protein and low in carbohydrates will stabilise blood sugar and insulin levels but also improve insulin sensitivity.

Immune support

The protein content and vitamin E, a natural antioxidant, help maintain a strong immune system.
