  • Just like humans, cats (and dogs) are what they eat.  Their diet can directly influence their levels of health and vitality.  Food is fuel yes, but it’s also vitally important to overall well-being and there are some things that cats must have in their daily regime. Amino acids are essential nutrients that all mammals need for life in general. Some of these can be created in the body whilst others must be synthesised from the animal protein found in food.

But trying to work out what’s best for our pets isn’t easy, especially with the way most pet food is labelled. Many brands simply categorise ingredients into...
