Pet Guard Anitra's Vita-Mineral Mix for Cats and Dogs 8 oz. (227 g)
PetGuard Anitra's Vita Mineral Mix for Cats and Dogs is the original formula that pet owners call the "Fur Food." Pet Guard Natural Pet Supplement Vita-Mineral Mix is made without sugar, preservatives, artificial flavors or artificial colors. Anitra Frazier, creator of this blend and author of the book The Natural Cat, says, "A plushy coat, strong teeth and bones, calm nerves and a joyful disposition depend upon good nutrition. Your animal friend's body is made out of whatever you put in the food dish."
Preventive health care can help add to the length and quality of your pet's life, too. All pets deserve the benefits from a lifestyle of optimum nutrition, exercise and regular veterinary visits. The PetGuard philosophy embodies a commitment to you and your pets to provide only natural alternatives for a healthier environment and lifestyle. Their complete line of natural pet care products offer discriminating pet owners the opportunity to provide their pets with the same healthy benefits that everyone seeks for themselves.
Daily Nutrition Tips
- The Natural Approach: PetGuard recommends varying your pet's diet occasionally by adding portions of fresh meat and vegetables as a part of a natural approach to nutritional well-being.
- Switching to PetGuard: To accustom your pet to a new food, most vets recommend mixing the new food with the current food. Gradually reduce the amount of the current food until your pet is eating the proper ration of PetGuard Premium pet food. Generally this change should take place over 7 to 10 days unless you are instructed differently by a veterinarian. Abrupt changes in your pet's diet can cause indigestion.
- Remember the Water: Be sure your pet always has plenty of fresh drinking water in a clean bowl. An adequate water intake is necessary to maintain your pet's good health and body functions. Supply fresh water daily.
- Natural Ingredients: Your pets are not able to read labels, therefore it is up to you to be their guard dog and pay particular attention to the ingredients contained in your pet's daily meals.
MY PETS HAVE ALLERGIES, CAN I FEED THEM PETGUARD?
Proteins and chemicals in foods can cause reactions in pets. Also, airborne substances such as pollen, dust, mold and contact with paints, plastics, soaps and even grass can cause allergic reactions. PetGuard is free of chemical additives and preservatives and has created a variety of foods with varying sources of protein to accommodate the tastes and sensitivities of animal companions.
WHY DOESN'T PETGUARD STATE THAT 'HUMAN GRADE INGREDIENTS" ARE USED IN YOUR PRODUCTS?
According to the USDA and FDA, it is illegal to use or promote the use of the verbiage "human grade ingredients" because there is no legal term as "human grade". PetGuard uses ingredients that we would eat ourselves. The best ingredients that PetGuard uses in the foods brought to your pets are the result of 25 years of working with suppliers and careful monitoring of the quality demanded for products manufactured to PetGuard's specifications.
WHAT ARE BY-PRODUCTS?
Animal by-products include such things as feathers, fur, tendons, hooves and beaks. There are no by-products in any PetGuard product.
DOES PETGUARD USE GMO'S IN THEIR FOODS?
GMO's (genetically modified organisms) are not used in PetGuard products.
WHAT PRESERVATIVES ARE USED IN PETGUARD PRODUCTS?
PetGuard dry foods are preserved with mixed tocopherols and vitamins C and E. These natural preservatives serve two functions: they prevent the food from spoiling and they scavenge free radicals which are known to cause cancer and cell damage.
WHY DOES THE COLOR AND TEXTURE OF YOUR PRODUCTS CHANGE FROM TIME TO TIME?
Because PetGuard uses only all natural ingredients in their formulas, the finished products may vary slightly in color or texture. Remember, there are no fillers, artificial colors or flavors in PetGuard foods to assure that every product would look exactly like the one before it.
EXPLAIN WHAT ORGANIC FOODS ARE AND WHY PETGUARD PRODUCTS ARE BETTER.
Unlike many foods produced today, organic foods are grown without pesticides or harmful chemical fertilizers. Organic foods do not contain artificial products of any kind. For example, Coleman Beef, which is used exclusively by PetGuard in all its beef dinners, are cattle raised from birth without artificial hormones or antibiotics. The chicken used in PetGuard chicken dinners is USDA hormone-free poultry. Every PetGuard product is prepared from wholesome ingredients including fresh vegetables and whole grains, complete with fiber and nutrients to offer your pet companion a flavorful, highly digestible food free of artificial ingredients and by-products. Just good wholesome food.
WHAT IS THE SHELF LIFE OF YOUR PRODUCTS?
All PetGuard products, including all PetGuard supplements, have an expiration date printed on the label or the can. Just like with foods that humans consume, to take advantage of maximum freshness, products should be used in a timely manner.
Since 1979, PetGuard has practiced the philosophy, which embodies the commitment to you and your pets, to provide only natural alternatives for a healthier environment and lifestyle. People today are concerned with the important relationship between nutrition and health. We are all concerned about actual ingredient sources, seeking products free of artificial ingredients, by-products, colors, preservatives, excess sugars and salt. PetGuard's concern for minimizing toxic chemicals in the environment and sensitivity for improving lifestyles extends to pets as well. Veterinarians agree that well fed pets contract fewer diseases, look healthier and are more active than pets that do not receive a healthful, well balanced diet. All pets deserve the benefits from a lifestyle of optimum nutrition, exercise, good grooming habits and regular veterinary visits. PetGuard's natural pet care products offer the discriminating and conscientiously concerned pet parents the opportunity to provide pets with the same health benefits that everyone seeks for themselves.
