NUTRITIONAL BALANCE

On their own, dogs and cats cannot produce all the elements needed for a healthy organism. To meet their needs, it is primordial to provide high quality, balanced food.

There are 40 nutrients essential for the cat or dog's balance, which must be provided by their food.

40 nutrimentsThere are:

  • Water,
  • Energy : carbohydrate (starch and fibres) and fats (2 essential fatty acids),,
  • Proteins : 10 essential amino acids,
  • Minerals : 14 macro and trace elements (calcium, phosphorous, sodium, potassium, magnesium, chlorine, sulphur, copper, zinc, manganese, iron, selenium, cobalt and iodine),
  • Vitamins = 14 (vitamins B, A, D, E, K).

This food must cover all the animal's daily nutritional needs. This includes all the nutrients that the organism needs to receive to satisfy its daily requirements.

 An animal's needs equate to:

  • Care requirements = These requirements are linked to what the animal expends to live, correspond to the animal's vital functions and vary according to the animal's size and the temperature of its environment.
  • Production requirements = These requirements depend on the nature and intensity of the animal's additional functions, such as activity, gestation, lactation or growth.
     

 Feeding an animal implies:

  • Covering its needs with 40 essential nutrients,
  • Respecting its physiological condition and digestive comfort,
  • Taking into account its preferences in terms of taste,
  • Guaranteeing its longevity and therefore its health.
