Fish Product Info

Because MAXHEALTH pet diet is based on a principle different to other specific diets it is possible to reduce and even resolve many conditions that can’t be prevented and/or improved with other diets

It is important to remember that the term “food allergy” (hypersensitivity) is an adverse reaction to a food or food additive with a proven immunologic basis, while “food intolerance” is an abnormal response to an ingested food substance, additive or residue/metabolite that resembles a hypersensitivity response but does not involve immune mechanism. Adverse reaction to food (food sensitivity) is a general term for a clinically abnormal response to an ingested food or food additive or metabolite residue. By using fish as the sole animal protein and fat source we can prevent conditions that could be attributable to substances or their metabolites contained in meat or meat derivatives. We refer particularly to intensive meat farming. Furthermore the diet can be used as a novel protein diet in dogs presenting true allergy to animal meat.

Substances commonly added to feeds are: Amprolium, Dinitro-orthotoluamide, Avoparcin, Flavophospholipol, Lasalocid, Monensin Narasin, Oxytetracycline, Salinomycin, Tetrachlorvinphos, Tylosin, Virginiamycin, Zinc bacitracin, Ethopabate, Fosfomycin, Halofuginone, Kitasamycin, Maduramicin Nicarbazin, Nitrovin, Olaquindox, Robenidine, Semduramicin, Clopidol, Hygromycin, Cyromazine. The best results will be obtained by feeding exclusively the MAXHEALTH pet diet and avoid the use, even in tiny amounts, of any other type of food, including bread, bones, meat broth, biscuits and dog treats – even tiny amounts can impact the health of a sensitive pet. The diet should be used for a minimum period of 3 to 8 weeks.

Why Fish

Fish and fish derivatives have a high protein content (over 65%) and an excellent composition of essential amino acids, just under milk and egg protein content and very far over any vegetable protein. Evidence indicates that the amino acids in fish are more available than those in meat. The amino acids of fish derivatives are 90% digestible. The protein in fish and fish derivatives has high biological value, it is rich in the essential amino acids particularly lysine and the Sulphur amino acids.

Fish, besides being a source of high quality protein, also contains about 8-12% fat which contains long chain Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (EPA and DHA). Fish oil is also rich in EPA and DHA. EPA and DHA, only exist in fish oils and can not be found in other animal or vegetables oils.

Digestibility of these products is very high and, in many cases, over 90%.

Vitamins content, particularly the vitamin B complex and Vit D are significant.

Fish and fish derivatives have important quantities of mineral elements such as selenium and others that act as helping elements in the enzymatic processes.

The importance of preservatives in Dry dog food

Dry dog food greatest risk of becoming not fit for consumption is represented by a chemical reaction know as OXIDATION. This is a normal occuring process in nature and living organisms have developed metabolic processes to prevent and repair damage of cells caused by oxidation.

For different reasons, the component of the dry dog food that is the most sensitive to the oxidation process is the FAT. When fat is oxidized we can observe a reduction in palatability (acceptability), nutritional value and sometime the food can become unsafe to eat. It is therefore of paramount importance to protect the dry food from oxidation and this is achieved by using substances called antioxidant preservatives. Antioxidants are classified as natural or not. Examples of natural antioxidant are tocopherols, citric acid, rosemary extract while non-natural are BHT, BHA, Etoxyquin. Although there is growing concern about the “toxicity” of non-natural antioxidants to date no peer reviewed research has been published confirming long term damage/illness, related to these substances in dogs. Currently more studies are under way but until conclusive results are submitted there will be no legislation prohibiting the use of BHT, BHA or Ethoxyquin in both human and dog foods. On the other hand, consumers must read labels or contact the dog food manufacturer to establish wich antioxidant has been used it that particular product so to meet their preferences regarding natural or synthetic antioxidants.

SIMBIO has been developed keeping these worries in mind. We are able to have access to untreated raw materials such as the beef meal which is produced closely to the manufacturing plant and therefore can be stabilized by natural preservation, furthermore we do not add any fat, digest and tallow before, during and after production of SIMBIO. These animal products are ready available but their preservation is often achieved by non-natural antioxidants. SIMBIO has therefore two great advantages 1) naturally preserved 2) low fat content.
