Our Pet Nutrition Philosophy
Pet owners don’t have to compromise on quality to save money. For quality without compromise, HealthWise dog and cat foods offer natural, premium diets for all life stages and lifestyles. The HealthWise nutritional philosophy has always been rooted in quality:
- High-Quality Dog and Cat Food Ingredients
HealthWise uses only high-quality, natural ingredients to create foods that are denser and richer in essential nutrients. This means pets get more nutrition from less food, with calories and fats in each formula balanced to fit their specific needs.
- Whole Pet Food Ingredients That Are Nutrient–Rich
Mother Nature made the grain in its whole state. As such, it includes nutritious protein, fats, carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins and minerals. Other pet food companies use fractionated grains, which do not include this balance of natural nutrition.
- Highly Controlled Cooking Methods and Quality Checks to Preserve Natural Levels of Nutrients
HealthWise products are subjected to well over 100 defined quality control checks throughout the manufacturing process. These structured and rigorous checks ensure the highest quality and safest pet food on the market. Multiple tests must be passed and specifications must be met for all raw materials and at many key control points during the manufacturing process before any food, treat or supplement makes it out of the manufacturing facility and on to retailers’ shelves.
- No Artificial Preservatives, Colors or Additives
HealthWise will not add anything to the food unless it is nutritious and healthful for a cat or dog. All our foods are free from chemical additives of any kind, including preservatives such as ethoxyquin and BHA/BHT, which are frequently found in pet foods but are banned from human use in many countries.
- Pet Food Ingredients That Provide the Optimum Nutritional Profile for Skin and Coat
Getting a good skin and coat is no big secret. It’s just very expensive to do. You have to use more meat, higher quality sources of fats and oils, and high levels of vitamins and other nutrients. HealthWise has a large investment in quality - we’ve made the commitment. Other dog food and cat food companies try to take shortcuts by using vegetable protein fillers and cheaper sources of fats.
- Extensive Testing and Monitoring to Assure Optimal Health and Longevity of Pets
HealthWise will stay on the leading edge of pet health care. As new information is developed, HealthWise will adjust formulas to ensure that our diets continue to be among the healthiest in the world!
