Professional dog food Wolfsblut (Wolfsblat)
Today we hear and talk a lot about a healthy lifestyle and a balanced diet, in which the ratio of proteins, fats and carbohydrates directly depends on activity, age, physical condition and even place of residence. Today we do not buy products, especially new ones, without having studied the label, composition, reviews.
The diet of our pets requires the same selective and scrupulous approach, it does not tolerate compromise. Properly selected food will give your pet energy, health, his coat will shine, and he will be cheerful and active.
But how to understand the variety of feeds on the market? How not to fall for the populism of marketing campaigns that skillfully mask low-quality feed?
First of all, you need to focus on professionals. Have you ever heard that breeders select food for their wards, focusing on a particular breed or shag?
The specialized approach is based on the same trinity: proteins, fats and carbohydrates – and a deep understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the digestive system of dogs.
According to the “Happy Pet” team, the ideology of the Wolfsblut feed recently appeared on the Russian market, translated as “Wolf Blood”, speaks precisely about the professional orientation of the brand.
What is the Wolfsblut concept? Consider its main points.
The philosophy of the brand is based on an understanding of the very nature of the dog as a carnivore. Therefore, in the process of forming the optimal diet for the dog, paramount importance is given to animal proteins – meat and fish.
This source of protein is considered to be full-fledged, because, unlike proteins of plant origin, it contains all amino acids essential for dogs (we are talking about 10 amino acids that cannot be synthesized in the body, but must be supplied with food).
Proteins of animal origin are distinguished by good digestibility: they are faster and lighter than proteins of plant origin (for example, often used in the manufacture of corn and soybean feeds) are split in the dog’s short digestive tract into components that are easily absorbed.
It is noteworthy that the emphasis is on a specific protein of the diet of wolves – the closest genetic relative of the dog – the meat of wild animals: venison, horse meat, duck, salmon. Such a protein is hypoallergenic.
One more circumstance is very important: raw meat and fish are used as a source of protein in Wolfsblut feed, so that amino acids remain available. Long-term studies have confirmed that heat-treated raw materials are of lower quality (high processing temperatures disrupt amino acid compounds, up to the complete destruction of some of them), protein is not so quickly and efficiently absorbed (due to prolonged thermal effects, bonds between proteins and carbohydrates form) .
Thus, Wolfsblut feed contains proteins of high biological value: all the nutrients necessary for a full and healthy life are supplied with the feed, which are absorbed to the maximum extent.
As you know, the most important source of energy, the key to the timely development and growth of the dog are fats. Like proteins, they can be of animal or plant origin. Of course, the benefits of the most commonly used oils by humans, such as rapeseed, sunflower, olive or nut, are not disputed, but they are unusual for wolves and wild dogs, i.e. are not used directly as a source of fat in nature, which means they are less absorbed. Therefore, only animal fats are present in Wolfsblut feeds. This is mutton fat, duck fat, marine fish fat, etc. It is also important that Wolfsblut feeds have a balanced level of fatty acids (omega-6 and omega-3), which are necessary to maintain reproductive function, good skin condition and dog hair.
In the process of creating a balanced diet, carbohydrates also play a significant role. The question is what type of carbohydrate is used in the feed formulation. Many studies and practices of breeders confirm the fact that various grain crops, historically the most commonly used in the production of feed, in particular oats and wheat, are today one of the most common causes of allergies. Moreover, these grains are atypical food sources for dogs (wolves). Taking these 2 circumstances into account, Wolfsblut, a food producer, relied on potatoes, rice and sweet potatoes. The latter is given a special place. Sweet Potato, originally from the Peruvian Andes, is one of the oldest and most nutritious foods. It has been recognized as a healthy vegetable, suitable for the diet of food allergy sufferers.
Wolfsblut feed is also distinguished by the presence of special additives – phytocomponents.
