Horizon products are...
HISTORICAL CANINE NUTRITION:
Since the food is concentrated, there is more value with less food consumed.
Feeding grain-free foods require 20-25% less food than steam-extruded foods. Pet owners will find less odor and stool clean-up. By feeding Horizon quality products, you will be able to see the difference in your pet's health, skin, coat, energy level and quality life-style.
The good value is not sprayed on.
Quality ingredients provide for a pet's healthy well-being by helping the pet's body holistically heal itself through healthy nutrition.
All formulas are made from the highest quality ingredients and do not contain meat by-products, color additives or chemical preservatives (BHA, Ethoxyquin, or BHT). The food is naturally preserved with mixed Tocopherols and Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin E and C). Some authorities indicate that Vitamin C is not required; however, we feel it is very important in supporting vitamin balance and to help handle daily stress and environmental pollution.
MEAT: 80% inclusion of high quality fresh chicken, chicken meal, salmon meal, turkey meal, fresh eggs and chicken fat, all rich in essential amino acids for your pet's health.
GRAIN-FREE: Legacy is a Grain-Free line of Pet Food. Found to be superior to foods with grains.
NATURALLY SOURCE ANTIOXIDANTS: Blueberries, cranberries and pineapple, all with strong antioxidant properties to protect from free radicals.
UNIQUE BOTANICALS & IMMUNE ENHANCERS: Glucosamine & Chondroitin - Superior combination of joint health supplements in a balanced formula. Yucca - Helpful for allergies, skin problems, body odor, stress and arthritis.
DIGESTIVE ENZYMES: A custom blend of Protease, Amylase, Lipase, Cellulose, Lactase & Bromelain to enhance absorption of nutrients, deliver nutrients and carry away wastes, digest food, purify the blood and feed the brain to strengthen the immune system.
Corn is an excellent
grain; however, it is more difficult to digest - either by
humans or dogs. Therefore, corn is not used as an ingredient in our
dog food. The feline digestive systems better utilize corn and
supplies important diet benefits to cats and kittens. Corn is
included in the feline formulas.
MEAT: 80% inclusion of high quality fresh chicken, chicken meal, salmon meal, turkey meal, fresh eggs and chicken fat, all rich in essential amino acids for your pet's health. There are no rendered by-products, intestines, heads, feet or feathers in our formulas. The amino acids provided by the meats are the basic building blocks of muscle, skin, coat, bone, blood and the immune system.
CHICKEN: We prefer to more correctly say we use human quality chicken that is hormone free. Like all of our ingredients, we pay a premium price for the very best available. Chicken meat provides essential amino and fatty acids.
FRESH EGGS: Chickens are range fed.
FISH: Fish is a prime source of a complete protein - it includes all the essential amino acids. Rich in unsaturated fats (Omega 3 fatty acids), Vitamins A, K and K, and also contains iodine, calcium, phosphorus, iron, potassium copper and floride.
PROBIOTICS: Entercoccus Faecium, Lactobacillus Casei, Lactobacillus Acidophilus, Bifidobacterium Bifidum & Lactobacillus Plantarum. A custom blend of cultures designed to promote immune system & gastrointestinal health.
PREBIOTICS: Natural sources of Mannan Oligosaccharides (MOS) Fructo-Oligosaccharides (FOS) added to stimulate intestinal health and overall immunity.
VITAMINS and MINERALS: Minerals that are bound to amino acids, protein segments or organic molecules. Chelated minerals are more actively absorbed in the intestinal tract allowing higher assimilation in the body. Our minerals are Chelated: bonded with amino acids (protein) and highly effective in providing metabolic absorption. Our products are preserved with a combination of mixed Tocopherols (Vitamin E) and Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C). No harmful chemicals are used.
FLAX: The different proteins in flax provide a high proportion base of unsaturated, essential fatty acids and dietary fiber. Flax is recognized for its potential in reducing the risk of some chronic diseases as well as improving the thickness and sheen of the hair coat. It provides a great benefit to oven-baked food by resisting oxidation from the baking process and improving product shelf life.
CHELTED MINERALS: Minerals that are bound to amino acids, protein segments or organic molecules. Chelated minerals are more actively absorbed in the intestinal tract allowing higher assimilation in the body.
COPPER AND IRON: A deficiency of iron causes nutritional anemia. A small amount of copper will improve utilization of iron.
PROTEINS: Proteins are organic chemical compounds and a major component of the structure of all living organisms. Protein functions to build and repair body structure. A good pet food should contain highly digestible protein sources that provide the essential amino acids in adequate amounts. Digestible food protein from several sources is more desirable for protein from only one source.
CARBOHYDRATES: Fresh fruits and vegetables, including peas, carrots, apples, broccoli and bok choy add flavor and additional nutrients. Carbohydrates serve primarily as an energy source while giving bulk to the diet. Plant material is made up of a high percentage of carbohydrates.
BALANCED LEVELS OF ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS: Fats are complex molecules that are broken down by the digestive system into smaller molecules known as fatty acids. Fat is a concentrated source of energy and works toward making hormones, skins and coat oils, membranes and parts of body Cells.
ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS: High quality chicken fat, whole ground flaxseed and salmon balanced to an optimal level. All sources of EPA, DHA, ALA and Omega-6 Essential Fatty Acids.
FIBER: Pea Fiber for hairball control (feline formula only).
PRESERVATIVES: Our products are preserved with a combination of mixed Tocopherols (Vitamin E) and Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C). Rosemary is also used. No harmful chemicals are used.
STORAGE AND SHELF LIFE:
Flint River Ranch pet food has a shelf life of about 6 months when stored in a cool, dry environment, whether opened or not. After the bag is opened, the open end should be rolled up and held closed by a clip or some other means to help keep insects and other pests out. The food will spoil more quickly if in a damp place, or where readily infested by moths, worms, or insects, and may last longer in a very cool and dry environment. Refrigeration is not necessary, but it's not a bad idea, particularly if your situation is borderline - high humidity, with several months storage before the food is used up.
