Nutrition

Every ingredient in our Pet Chef Express™ pet food serves an important purpose. In addition to chicken or lamb, fish or venison, we add these carefully selected ingredients for a complete, balanced diet.

  • High quality animal proteins like eggs, meat and fish
  • Rice for energy
  • Oatmeal for its unique nutritional benefit
  • Carrots, celery, parsley, lettuce, watercress, spinach
  • Beet pulp to furnish the highest level of nutritional fiber with the best balance of soluble and insoluble fiber
  • Methionine and Lysine (essential amino acids)
  • Poultry fat, lecithin, vegetable and fish oil to condition the coat and for energy
  • Natural vitamins, including vitamin E for freshness
  • Omega 3 & 6
  • Natural minerals, including Glucosamine

Perhaps equally important is the list of things you won't find in Pet Chef Express™ food:

  • Artificial colors
  • Chemical preservatives such as ethoxyquin, BHA or BHT excess
  • Crude Fiber such as peanut hulls, rice bran, soy hulls or wheat bran which can damage the digestive tract

What Pet Chef Express™ means by Nutrition Made Simple-we use the highest quality ingredients blended by professionals to give your pet balanced pet food.

Do you care what your pet is eating?

If so? then study the labels on the foods that you are currently feeding your pet. See for yourself the difference between our pet food and the national leading brands (these can be found on the web).

Ingredients are listed in order of their volume percentages. For example if Soybean is the first ingredient listed on the label, then Soybean is the major ingredient in your pet's food. Listed below are some ingredients we would like to bring to your attention.

ANIMAL BY-PRODUCTS
Parts of the animal not fit for human consumption.

By products can include intestines, chicken heads, duckbills, chicken and turkey feet, feathers and bone. Ingredients listed as Chicken, Beef and Poultry by-products are not required to include actual meat. Rendered meat can include any mamal meat including cats and dogs.

ETHOXYQUIN, BHA AND BHT
Chemical additives used as preservatives. Ethoxyquin is regulated as a pesticide and cannot be added to human food.

FILLERS
These are ingredients such as feathers, soy, cotton hulls, corn cobs, peanut hulls, citrus pulp, screenings, weeds, straw and cereal by-products. Food company's claim these ingredients to be all-natural, and technically they are. The down fall is that your pet gets NO nutritional value from these fillers, and it creates more work for the POOPER-SCOOPER.

We at Pet Chef Express are proud to say that we only use all natural ingredients and preservatives. By using these ingredients your pet will get a little something from everything in our foods.
