The Importance of Feeding your Dog or Cat a Well-Balanced Diet

We know what is good and bad for own diets, but what about feeding your dog or cat a well-balanced diet?

Our cats and dogs are our family members, and with that they should be fed quality, well-balanced food that nourishes them. Quality food will:

  • keep your pet’s coat shiny and sleek
  • strengthen his or her immune system
  • and keep his or her digestive system working properly

The best pet foods have real animal proteins as the very first ingredient such as venison, turkey, whitefish, or another type of meat, poultry, or fish. Taste of the Wild pet food uses the highest quality grain-free formulas that are based on their ancestral diet. Here are some main ingredients that you will find in our pet formulas and how your pet benefits from them:

A Healthier Diet for Your Four-Legged Children

  • Legumes & Fruits

    Sweet potatoes, peas, tomatoes, blueberries and raspberries provide plant-sourced nutrients to help support overall well-being.

  • Sweet Potatoes

    Rich in dietary fiber, vitamins A and C, iron, calcium and beta carotene, this is one ideal complex carbohydrate source that provides all day energy. A real super vegetable!

  • Garbanzo Beans

    Rich in protein, vitamins and minerals.

  • Potato Fiber

    This is where your pet gets his or her dietary fiber from. It is an important nutrient that supports healthy digestion and optimal stool quality.

  • Dried Chicory Root

    This is a prebiotic fiber that helps to balance the probiotic bacteria in the intestines, support healthy digestion and nutrient absorption.

  • Roasted Lamb

    Lamb is an exceptional lean protein source, providing amino acids for muscles, organs and the immune system.

  • Trout & Smoked Salmon

    These tasty fish are added for great flavor. In addition, they are highly digestible protein to help your cat maintain good health.

In addition to our main ingredients, we add specific amino acids, vitamins and minerals into our formulas to ensure your pet gets all of the proper nutrients:

  • Antioxidants

    Fruits and vegetables provide antioxidants to help support optimal cellular health. Our formulas contain blueberries and raspberries that are packed with antioxidants to help protect your pet’s body from damaging free radicals.

  • DHA

    DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid that helps support the development of the brain. Our puppy formulas are made with salmon oil that provide your puppy with DHA.

  • Taurine

    Taurine is an essential amino acid for all cats. It helps maintain healthy heart and eyes.

  • Protein Blend for Optimal Amino Acid Profile

    Amino acids are the building blocks for a healthy body. Your pet needs multiple protein sources to meet his or her needs. Ocean fish meal provides the added benefit of marine-source omega-3 fatty acids, important for a healthy immune system, healthy skin and a shiny coat.

  • Omega Fatty Acid Blend

    Omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids work together to help maintain a shiny coat, healthy skin, and overall health and digestive function.
