NEW top quality Farmina pet food from Italy

You asked for it!  - NEW top quality Farmina pet food from Italy 

After this summer's news about some pet food increasing the risk of heart disease, our nutrition team at Pandosy Vet went on a hunt for a high quality dry pet food without pulses. To sum up our previous article "DCM Heart Disease and Dog Food" cardiologists are working on the premise that pulses (lentils and peas) lead to increased heart disease in dog breeds already prone to heart issues. Our mission? To offer a pulse-free dry dog foot with great ingredients.

Our hunt led us far and wide, since many pet foods that avoid pulses also use sub-standard ingredients, like meals (aka, animal products that don't qualify as meat. Yuck. Don't buy that stuff.)

Finally, we found it!
Farmina is a Italian, family-run company that makes top quality dry food for cats and dogs. 

University of Naples Forumlated -
Top Quality Ingredients

Farmina makes world-class pet food, made in Italy. Their recipes are formulated in conjunction with the University of Naples, and meet the incredibly strict European pet food regulations (- we only have guidelines in North America.)

From Farmina's extensive lines, we've selected three protein choices that you can rotate as you like - and all meet Dr. Jason's high standards.

The N&D (Nutritious and Delicious) Ocean diets are from wild-caught fish from the North Sea (the cleanest fishery in the world) and all N&D Ancient Grains meats are raised without the use of antibiotics or hormones. Additionally, the Ancient Grains line uses non-GMO heritage spelt as the carbohydrate, avoiding any issues with lentils and peas.

Full lists of ingredients and nutritional analysis are found here for Ancestral Grains and here for the Oceans foods.
