I recently switched our 2 dogs and 2 cats to Transparent Nutrition®. Not only do they love the food, I as a veterinarian, love the idea that I can finally feed them a diet that is pure, humane and wholesome and exceeds any other diet on the market. No more confusion, and direct shipping means no trips to the pet food store. I finally have peace of mind knowing my companions are getting the best diet for a long and healthy life.
As the saying goes “you are what you eat.” That adage is especially true today with the global nature of our food sources. The question must strike us all “what exactly AM I eating?” The same holds true for providing sound nutrition for our companion animals. In most situations, we have 100% control over what our dogs and cats eat. They are entirely dependent on us to make the right choice for them. The unfortunate reality is that the majority of the pet food brands out there, including high-priced boutique brands, are owned by large human food companies. Many are best known for making candy bars. These mass-produced pet food brands rely on less expensive and easily obtained protein and carbohydrate sources that often originate from overflow of the human food market and can come from anywhere in the world. Quality control of pet food sources is difficult if not impossible when thousands of different suppliers are used.
It’s no shame to admit you have little time to analyze the small print on pet food bags. Veterinarians have suffered along with you, equally perplexed by the mountain of options and the questionable ingredients in even the most expensive brands. We’ve been recommending brands for decades with limited reliance on the origin or the quality of ingredients. It was difficult to recommend one brand over another…until now.
Recognizing the need for purer pet foods that were designed and produced by veterinarians rather than candy bar companies prompted the Pennsylvania company, Veterinary Recommended Solutions® (VRS), to source and produce a line of pet foods called Transparent Nutrition.
VRS chose the name to reflect the transparent nature of all of the USA-sourced ingredients in their food. From certified antibiotic-free organic chicken to sustainable wild-caught pacific cod, all ingredients are clearly labeled with full manufacturing transparency. These labels are easy to read and understand. Furthermore, the animal products are obtained thru the Global Animal Partnership which ensures freerange, pasture-fed, humanely raised conditions for all Transparent Nutrition animal stock. Every bag of food comes with a lot number which you can plug into the VRS website and see exactly from what farms and what states your ingredients came from. That’s pretty cool!
Equally importantly, VRS tests every batch of food for the presence of contaminants (heavy metals, mycotoxins, microbes, toxic compounds like melamine, etc…) Pet food companies are not required by regulatory agencies to test for certain contaminants, nor are they required to share their results with consumers. VRS is veterinary owned and not only surpasses current testing guidelines, it freely shares these results with you, the consumer. And guess what, whereas other companies either fail to test all together, or, once tested, accept a variety of different levels of contamination,
VRS accepts ZERO as the only passing standard of purity. With the highest level of sourcing, testing and content transparency, these pet foods are simply the finest and cleanest pet foods on the planet.
I urge you to make the switch to VRS Transparent Nutrition for your pets and to share in the peace of mind knowing you are feeding them the best and cleanest commercial food on the market.
