What goes in our food

The goodness that goes into CaspianPets food

Dog's health and well being is our priority.  The correct dog diet is the best way to ensure your pets health and happiness.  This is why we make sure we use high quality ingredients and all the important supplements, with no compromises.  All of our foods contain high protein content, with choices available which are potential novel proteins, and high quality carbohydrates.  None of our foods contain artificial colours, flavours, preservatives or any cheap fillers like grains and wheat.  This makes our foods easily digestible and highly nutritious.

We also think its very important to be completely transparent and make it easy to understand for our customers to know what they're feeding their dogs.  So here's a breakdown of what goes into our foods.

Carbohydrates

Carbs are a fundamental part of a dogs diet.  It's what provides your dog with energy.  Carbohydrates come in many forms, but some carbs are considered bad, and of low quality.  Even more so when fed to dogs, as they have difficulty breaking these down and digesting them.

Our Grain Free foods used sweet potato as the primary source of carbohydrates.

Our Hypoallergenic range use brown rice as the primary soruce.

Brown rice and sweet potato are high quality and easily digestible and provide a great source of fibre.

Protein

Protein is also a fundament part of a dogs diet.  Protein is an important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood.  Proteins is essential for dogs growth, development and maintenance.

We use several sources of high quality protein in our foods, and use potential novel protein sources in our Hypoallergenic foods for dogs who have allergies to certain sources.
