New GO! Solutions™ Meal Mixers Help Support Common Health Issues in Dogs
CHILLIWACK, B.C., March 21, 2018 /CNW/ - Recognizing that more pet parents are seeking out specialized solutions to help support common pet health issues, Petcurean is introducing freeze-dried meal mixers for dogs that are made with nutritional and functional ingredients. The company's new GO! Solutions™ Meal Mixer line features specialized recipes to support four specific dietary needs in dogs: Digestive Health Turkey Meal Mixer™, Hip & Joint Support Pork Meal Mixer™, Skin & Coat Care Salmon Meal Mixer™, and Weight Control Turkey Meal Mixer™.
Trends in Canada's pet food industry often mirror those in the US, where a recent study found that more than a quarter of pet owners are choosing to add meal mixers and toppers to their dog's diet1. The functional ingredients in the new GO! Solutions™ Meal Mixer line include freeze-dried pork, turkey, salmon, whole cranberries and blueberries, New Zealand green mussels, and bits of pumpkin. From aching joints and upset stomachs, to itchy skin and being overweight, GO! Solutions Meal Mixers provide a functional boost of nutrition to help address many of these common issues.
"The decision to expand our popular GO! line with functional meal mixers was driven by the increasing need for solution-based pet foods," said Jaimie Turkington, VP of Sales and Marketing at Petcurean. "Further demonstrating our commitment to innovation, the GO! Meal Mixer line is our seventh brand extension since July 2017 and is a direct response to consumers' increasing request for premium products tailored to their pet's specific needs."
Petcurean's GO! Meal Mixers can be added to kibble, stew, or pâté, or served as a convenient and healthy treat. The GO! Meal Mixers for dogs are available in four recipes:
- GO! DIGESTIVE HEALTH™ Turkey Meal Mixer: De-boned turkey with pumpkin, probiotics and pre-biotic fiber from chicory root to support the maintenance of healthy gut bacteria. Pumpkin is a great source of dietary fiber, and prebiotic fiber acts as food for probiotics (good gut bacteria).
- GO! HIP + JOINT SUPPORT™ Pork Meal Mixer: De-boned pork with glucosamine, chondroitin, turmeric, and New Zealand green mussels work together to help maintain healthy joints. New Zealand green mussels are a natural source of chondroitin and omega-3 fatty acids, which, along with turmeric, provide anti-inflammatory properties.
- GO! SKIN + COAT CARE™ Salmon Meal Mixer: De-boned salmon and salmon skin provide omega-3 fatty acids to aid healthy skin and a shiny coat.
- GO! WEIGHT CONTROL™ Turkey Meal Mixer: De-boned turkey combined with psyllium husk provide a sense of tummy fullness to help avoid over-eating.
The freeze-drying process locks in maximum nutrition by removing water from fresh meats, fruits, and veggies through a vacuum process that gently turns liquid into vapour, thus maintaining the nutritional integrity of each ingredient. What results are tasty chunks of whole ingredients that add functional benefits to a dog's diet and get them excited for mealtime. The process may be technical, but the effect is pure and simple: concentrated, functional nutrition.
As with many of Petcurean's other GO!® recipes, the new Meal Mixer recipes are free of grains and gluten, and have zero corn, wheat, soy, by-products, added growth hormones, antibiotics, artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.
Petcurean's new GO! Meal Mixers will be available at independent pet specialty retailers nationwide this spring for $13.49 MSRP for a 100g bag. For more information about the GO! Meal Mixer recipes, please visit www.Petcurean.com/go-meal-mixers.
