Increasingly pet parents are seeking the simplicity of a diet limited in proteins, ingredients and grains for their cats and dogs, especially for those pets with ingredient intolerances or food sensitivities. “Many pet parents look for specialized diets because they want both the presence of positive, simple ingredients but also the absence of negatives – those select ingredients they may be avoiding for their pet,” said Sapir.
“Our new Limited Ingredient Diet keeps it simple with optimal nutrition for food-sensitive cats and dogs,” he continued. “Our recipes are made with a single source of animal protein, starting with high quality real deboned meat, fish or poultry as the first ingredient, a simple list of only select essential ingredients, and no grains or gluten ingredients.”
