Rufus meals consist of high quality ingredients combined in perfect balance providing outstanding nutrition. The knowledge we have combined with the high quality ingredients creates the perfect meals we offer. Understanding what makes your cat and dog function is how we know the meals we offer provide everything they could ever require. For a balanced diet you require all the elements below which can be found in one of our neat little meals.
Proteins are the basic building blocks for cells, tissues, organs and hormones which allow the cat and dogs body to grow, maintain itself, repair itself and provide energy for daily life. Rufus meals provide high quality proteins with this being the first ingredient in all our canned meals. The quality of these proteins is what sets us apart.
Fats are the plentiful source of energy in our meals. They provide more than two times the energy which is found in either proteins or carbohydrates. In order to absorb and maintain vitamin levels fats must be present in the diet. Again the quality of the fats used in Rufus meals sets us apart, because without quality fats vitamins will not be absorbed but pass straight through the cat or dog.
Grains such as wheat and rice together form carbohydrates which are a key source of energy in our meals. Our carbohydrates are low fat and highly digestible form of complex carbohydrates. It is important that carbohydrates provide the energy required and then pass through the digestive system smoothly. That is why the high quality carbohydrates are used to add fibre to the diet and aid the digestive function whilst delivering the energy required.
Vitamins and minerals work together with your cat or dogs natural enzymes to help aid digestion and reproduction along with muscle and bone development. This also helps maintain a healthy skin and coat and keeps illness away with a strong immune system. In Rufus meals you will find all the essential minerals like manganese, iron, potassium, copper, calcium and phosphorus.
