Dogs and cats are carnivores. They have canine teeth for shredding and
tearing meat. Their digestive tract is short, designed to process meat. A meat
based diet is what nature intended for your pets. Animal protein, meat,
naturally contains all essential amino acids in the correct ratio for muscle
growth and development.
Butch rolls are made from high quality, export certified meat that is only lightly
cooked to ensure the integrity of the nutrients. The percentage of meat in the
rolls ranges from 80% to 94%, depending on the product selected.
Butch does not produce dry pet food. Dry pet food is mostly grain. Plant
protein (grain) contains amino acids that are not efficiently utilized and the
elimination of these amino acids causes an unnecessary strain on your pet’s
liver and kidneys. The meat in dry pet food has been cooked at extremely
high temperatures which damages and destroys the natural nutrients.
Dry pet food has a very low moisture level, usually 15% or less and the
dehydration caused by this puts stress on your pet’s kidneys, liver, urinary
tract (in cats) and can lead to allergies and disease. Cats and dogs do not
drink enough water to eliminate this dehydration.
Omega-3 and Omega-6 are essential for the development and function of the brain, immune system, reproductive tissue, retina and skin.
Butch enriches its rolls with Omega-3 derived from fish oil (rather than flaxseed) as fish is a rich source of EPA and DHA fatty acids which are most beneficial and more readily utilised by the body. Butch rolls naturally contain the correct amount of Omega-6.
Note: Cats also require another essential fatty acid called arachidonic acid. Arachidonic acid is only present in animal tissue. As Butch rolls are made from fresh meat they naturally supply all the arachidonic acid that cats need. Other common features of Butch [+]
