phytonutrients, nutraceuticals, natural form antioxidants,vitamins and minerals

***(FROM WYSONG: Wysong has released numerous kibble alternatives — our TNT™ line of raw products and canned diets, for example. One solution to the problem is, of course, to move away from kibble. But millions of pet caretakers won't consider it because of habit and convenience. Multi-billion dollar companies have a stake in this not happening. Kibble is here to stay for the foreseeable future. Wysong considers it a responsibility to improve kibble to the greatest extent possible. That's what Epigen is all about) SEE MORE HERE ***
WYSONG ARCHETYPE NATURAL RAW DOG FOOD
The original WYSONG ARCHETYPE RAW DIET for dogs and cats.
ARCHETYPE (meaning the original model, the way things are meant to be) is designed to emulate the raw foods carnivores eat in the wild the natural diet dogs and cats are genetically programmed to eat.
This original formula is cold processed with our proprietary TNT (True Non-Thermal) manufacturing technology, which uniquely keeps vital food components fully intact and uncompromised.
It is a dried diet (99+% meat) formulated to closely mimic the natural raw diet of carnivore companion animals.
Complete with raw meats, organs, bones, essential fatty acids, probiotics, enzymes, plant nutrients, vital micronutrients and more!
Archetype is a superior raw dog and cat diet suitable for all life stages and sizes. Archetype is proven effective and safe and has been fed to thousands of companion animals over nearly a decade with tremendous results!
ZiwiPeak is designed to emulate the benefits of a wild prey hunting diet your dog or cat thrived upon in the wild, but with all the convenience and safety of a shelf stable pre-packed product.
Dogs are officially omnivores, but with very strong carnivorous tendencies.
ZiwiPeak is based on the same ratios of meat and organs as the animal would have found by hunting and eating in the wild. In this environment they would have eaten virtually the whole animal, including essential benefits from consuming such organs as the liver, lungs, stomach lining (tripe), heart, kidney and even the bone.
The air dried cuisine mirrors the equivalent of nature’s diet by using a unique and gentle process to air dry 90% raw meat, organs and fish. This unique air drying process minimises any damage to the proteins, vitamins and sensitive nutrients and enzymes.
The other 10% consists of carbohydrates from natural sources, such as chicory, kelp and parsley plus essential vitamins and minerals, like chondroitin and glucosamine for a balanced diet. This also means there is no need for you to provide any further nutritional support in the form of supplements.
ZIWIPEAK Canned DOG FOOD Also available
NO added sugars, NO salt, NO glycerines, NO antibiotics, NO hormones, NO growth promotants, NO fillers, NO grains or NO potatoes are used.
Also all products are also GMO free, with no ethoxyquin, no BHA or no BHT and no propylene glycol.
