Uretic™
Feline Formula
42% Protein
15% Fat
Chicken
Chicken meat sourced from U.S. suppliers. An excellent holistic source of protein, amino acids, and essential fatty acids.
Chicken Meal
Consisting of ground flesh (chicken meat), skin, and some bone, and exclusive of feathers, heads, feet and entrails. It is very digestible protein and contains chelated minerals and bone and joint nourishing proteoglycans. Chicken meal differs from fresh/frozen chicken in that the moisture has been removed. It therefore permits a more concentrated and dense quantity of meat and protein.
Chicken Fat
High quality, naturally preserved, and a source of essential linoleic acid and fat soluble vitamins.
Potato Protein
Potato protein is potato minus the starch. It is one of the highest value vegetable proteins there is.
Brown Rice
A nutritious source of vitamins, minerals, tocotrienols, and fiber. Carbohydrate and starch sources such as brown rice are not a necessary component of a companion animal's diet, but they can be fed in moderation and variety without ill effects and with nutritional benefits. For a Starch Free™ alternative, the only of its kind, see Wysong Epigen™.
Peas
A nutritious vegetable rich in protein, phyto-nutrients, phytosterols, minerals, vitamins and antioxidants. Peas are also a good source of vitamins A, C, K and B.
Flaxseeds
A plant source of omega-3 fatty acids vital for the health of the animal's skin, coat, cardiovascular, immune, nervous and reproductive systems.
Meat Protein Isolate
This is the required regulatory term for a highly beneficial and bioavailable protein isolate derived exclusively from pork meat. One of the most pure forms of protein available, and utilized by Wysong as a direct replacement for less ideal starch ingredients. An isolate is a more pure form of protein and less likely to cause food sensitivity reactions. The scientific support for protein isolates is vast and compelling. We encourage your exploration into the myriad benefits of protein isolates for both companion animals and humans.
Dried Plain Beet Pulp
Wrongfully recognized as a "filler" or source of sugar in pet foods, beet pulp contains excellent fiber and galacto-oligosaccharides that exert a prebiotic effect. Additionally, the pulp contains ferulic, gentisic, and p-Coumaric phenolic acids.
Natural Flavor
Enzymatically pre-digested, dried chicken and fish.
Sesame Seeds
Are particularly rich in the amino acid methionine. They also contain B-complex vitamins, protein, essential fatty acids, and essential minerals such as calcium, iron, copper, magnesium, manganese, selenium, and zinc.
Cheese
A blend of healthful, protein, vitamin, and mineral-rich cheeses, that also exert beneficial dental effects.
Whey
A dense source of high value dairy protein. Low in carbohydrates and fat. Provides an excellent spectrum of amino acids, and in particular the branched-chain amino acids that encourage muscle development and strength.
DL-Methionine
DL-methionine is an essential amino acid, meaning the body does not produce it and it therefore must be provided through the diet. It contains sulfur and serves as a building block for producing proteins. It also helps naturally acidify urine. It is essential to both cats and dogs, but cats exhibit a higher demand for this amino acid.
Salt
Not standard, refined table salt. Wysong whole salt is mined from ancient trace mineral rich geological deposits.
Tomato Pomace
Tomato skins, pulp, and seeds. It is a source of digestible fiber and lycopene. Contrary to internet lore, tomato pomace is not a cheap filler nor is it toxic in moderation.
Taurine
An essential amino acid for cats and arguably for dogs as well. Taurine can be diminished in food processing and should be supplemented. It exerts a host of benefits for the cardiovascular, ocular, and central nervous systems. It is also an antioxidant and is important in muscular response to exercise. Wysong ingredients processed using Wysong special processing provide an excellent source of taurine. However, as insurance, taurine is also supplemented to the diets.
Calcium Carbonate
Calcium in a natural form to help balance the phosphorus levels in meats. Calcium is crucial to bones, teeth, and metabolic processes.
Cranberry Extract
Included specifically to contribute to Uretic™’s effectiveness.
Calcium Propionate
A preservative.
Choline Chloride
Choline is a B-complex vitamin which helps to build cell membranes, promote nerve function, and maintain normal growth. Choline also plays a significant role in fat metabolism, liver regulation, and renal protection.
Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is a natural source of short chain fatty acids. It exerts beneficial effects on cholesterol, thyroid hormone, and blood sugar levels, and improves immune function. Coconut oil in a special Wysong processing step helps protect long-chain unsaturated fats (omega-3 and 6) from oxidation.
Organic Barley Grass Powder
Harvested before the first joint rises above ground, this grass contains a wealth of bioavailable nutrients including enzymes, vitamins, minerals and essential amino acids.
Blueberry
A source of many nutrients and fiber, with high levels of antioxidants.
Dried Kelp
A particularly good source of trace minerals, such as iodine, potassium and calcium as well as vitamins.
Yogurt
An excellent excellent substrate for probiotics and a source of protein, calcium, vitamin B2, B12, potassium, and magnesium.
Citric Acid
Acts as a natural preservative by chelating oxidizing minerals.
Dried Kale
Recognized as a "superfood," Kale is rich in vitamins, minerals, and powerful antioxidants. Kale is also a source of fiber.
Dried Spinach
Spinach is particularly high in niacin and zinc, plus numerous other vitamins and minerals. Spinach has been associated with mental, cardiovascular, and digestive health benefits.
Dried Carrots
Carrots are a source of Beta Carotene and other antioxidants, as well as numerous vitamins and minerals.
Apple Pectin
A high fiber, antioxidant-rich ingredient derived from apples.
Fish Oil
A source of omega-3 fatty acids. Essential fatty acids are recognized as vital for the health of the animal's skin, coat, cardiovascular, immune, nervous and reproductive systems.
Yeast Extract
The cell walls of yeast that exert probiotic effects and support immune system health.
Mixed Tocopherols
A natural mix of epimers of vitamin E.
Rosemary Extract
Exerts potent antioxidant and preservative effects.
Chicory Root
An herb that is rich in antioxidants, and known to enhance digestive health through its inulin prebiotic effects.
Yeast Culture
A living yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) that exerts probiotic effects, assists digestion, secretes enzymes, provides immune system health, and produces vitamins.
Minerals
While minerals are in food ingredients themselves, processing and modern farming practices may diminishes their levels and thus fortification is wise. Wysong minerals are in their most bioavailable forms including both inorganic and chelated proteinates.
Vitamins
While vitamins are in food ingredients themselves, processing diminishes their levels and thus fortification is wise. The safety and benefits of fortification are supported by hundreds of thousands of scientific studies. (See article No Vitamin, Mineral Processed foods.) Wysong fortifying vitamins include: Ascorbic Acid [source of Vitamin C], Vitamin E Supplement, Niacin Supplement, Calcium Pantothenate, Vitamin A Supplement, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Riboflavin Supplement, Biotin, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Menadione Sodium Bisulfite Complex [source of Vitamin K activity], Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Thiamine Mononitrate, Folic Acid.
Probiotics
Probiotic microorganisms exert a number of benefits including improving intestinal microbial balance, enzyme and vitamin production, and immune system health. Wysong probiotics include: Enterococcus faecium, Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bacillus subtilis, Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus lactis.
Pepper
Piperin is an extract of pepper that greatly enhances the digestive absorption of micronutrients.
