When it comes to food, K9 Natural is a dog’s best friend!
Based on the diet of the North American Grey Wolf, K9 Natural meets a dog’s true nutritional needs in the most natural way possible, hence K9's saying “Feed your dog’s inner wolf with nature’s complete recipe.”
K9 Natural has been created to be as close as possible to the diet of the wild wolf.
This is because DNA research has shown that the DNA of the domestic dog is at most only 0.2% removed from that of the Grey Wolf.
In contrast, the DNA of the Coyote (the wolf’s closest wild relative) is a whole 4% different.
These days, most commercially-made dog foods are cooked or contain large amounts of fillers - namely grains, cereals, rice and potatoes.
We share the view that these things go against nature.
Firstly, cooking is unnecessary and undesirable because too much heat destroys and/or dramatically alters the nutrient levels in food including vitamins, minerals, protein and many other beneficial attributes of food.
For more on this subject, we would refer you to the highly-influential vet and author of "Give Your Dog a Bone", Dr Ian Billinghurst.
Secondly, canines are carnivores and are not designed to digest cereals and grains (believed to be the leading cause of allergies in dogs).
When you understand these basic principles of nature and canine physiology, raw feeding with species-appropriate ingredients makes a lot of sense. And when put into practice it can deliver great benefits for your pet.
It’s precisely for the reasons mentioned above that K9 Natural is entirely raw and entirely free of grains and cereals.
It achieves correct nutritional balance for dogs, without supplements or anything artificial, by combining the right fresh, natural ingredients in just the right quantities – a process which took K9's producers 15 years to perfect.
Luckily, you don’t need a science degree to make sense of the ingredients in K9 Natural because each will be familiar to you: meat, blood, ground bone, seasonal fruits and vegetables, heart, liver, kidney, green tripe, eggs, garlic and cod liver oil.
All of these ingredients are of a quality deemed fit for human consumption, and all except the cod liver oil (from Norway) come from New Zealand farms and growers.
K9 Natural is very minimally processed. The ingredients are blended just enough to ensure nutritional consistency in every portion.
Once packaged, it’s blast frozen and remains frozen all the way to your shopping trolley.
K9's new Freeze Dried range requires no refrigeration and has an almost indefinite shelf life, making it perfect for those occasions when you and your dog are on the move.
Simply add warm water (no warmer than 37C/98.6F) and you have a nutritious, easy-to-serve raw meal for your canine companion.
K9 Natural is the easy, convenient and affordable way to provide your dog with a nutritionally-balanced raw food diet .
When you feed K9 Natural, you can be sure your dog is getting everything nature knows it needs!
