Turkey (including ground bones): The turkey that Petobee uses comes from a local, federally registered facility that produces human-grade meat products. As with all turkey produced in Canada for human consumption, our turkey is hormone and steroid free. Turkey is low in fat, and contains necessary protein, “good” fats, minerals, as well as many B vitamins (for increasing energy). The raw bones contained in our turkey blend are finely ground, thus eliminating any choking risk for your pet. Bones are a good source of calcium and phosphorus (which provides nutrients for a strong skeletal system). Our meat has been tested for the presence of e. coli and salmonella (with safe results). Turkey is a great alternative for pets who have chicken allergies.
Bison Liver: Bison liver provides a lean protein source, rich in riboflavin, niacin, iron, copper, folic acid, copper, zinc (which helps support a healthy immune system), and chromium. It has a highly concentrated source of vitamin A, and contains all B vitamins, particularly B12. It is rich in coQ10, which assists in cardiovascular function. Liver is also a good source of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.
Carrots: Carrots are not a necessary ingredient in your pet’s daily diet, however they provide a safe, nutritional and tasty source of fibre for your pet.
Molasses: Molasses is full of minerals and has been shown to help pets who suffer from arthritis. It is a good source of Vitamin B6 and Potassium, and a very good source of Magnesium, Calcium, Iron, and Manganese.
Apple Cider Vinegar: Apple Cider Vinegar is credited with helping maintain the alkaline balance of the digestive tract. Fleas, ticks, bacteria, external parasites, flies, ringworm, fungus, staphylococcus, streptococcus, mange, etc. are unlikely to inhabit a dog whose system is alkaline. Apple Cider Vinegar also assists in maintaining healthy joints, coats and promotes a healthy immune system.
Dried Parsley: Parsley flakes can assist in maintaining oral health in your pet. It also contains vitamin C, vitamin K, B vitamins, iron, as well as some great phytochemicals.
Sunflower Oil: Sunflower oil provides a source of omega-6 fatty acids, contributing to a healthy coat for your pet.
Garlic: In small quantities, garlic provides a natural repellant for fleas, ticks, mites and other biting insects. The sulfur excretion can help rid your pet of bacterial or fungal microbes that might be present on the skin, helping heal itchy or irritated skin. Garlic also kills bacteria internally, and can be used preventatively for dogs that have had repeated infestations of worms. Garlic is a strong expectorant, which encourages expulsion of irritants (spores, dust, pollen. etc.) in the lungs. A high dosage of garlic can be toxic to dogs; however Petobee includes only a small amount, as established by our canine nutrition specialist, to provide the aforementioned health benefits.
MSM and Glucosamine: MSM stands for methylsulfonylmethane. Petobee blends include a non-medicinal amount of MSM and Glucosamine to assist in joint support for your pet.
