Product Description: Why Choose PetGuard?
People today are concerned with the important relationship between nutrition and health. We are all concerned about the actual ingredient sources, seeking products free of artificial ingredients, colors, preservatives, excess sugars and salt. At PetGuard, our concern for minimizing toxic chemicals in our environment and sensitivity for improving our lifestyle extends to our pets as well.
Chicken is the 1st ingredient.
Chicken is a naturally heart healthy source of high-quality proteins, minerals, and essential fatty-acids. The Premium dry cat formula avoids the use of fillers and by-products.
Minimally processed fruits, grains and vegetables provide a great source of antioxidants and vitamins.
Premium taste and digestibility
Cats love the taste and texture of PetGuard Premium dry cat food. It is specially formulated for easy and complete digestibility, resulting in high absorption of food and nutrients. For this reason, your cat may produce a smaller stool volume.

Suggested Use: PetGuard Premium dry cat food is an ideal product for a self-feeding regimen with adult cats and kittens over 3 months of age. Since most cats and older kittens can regulate the amount of food they need, simply pour a serving your cat will completely consume during the day. This will allow your cat or kitten to nibble on the food when hungry, which is the way most cats prefer to eat.
Kittens up to 3 months of age: At weaning and until the kitten has developed teeth to consume a completely dry product, moisten PetGuard Premium dry cat food with water, or broth. For the very young kitten, just before weaning, moisten the food to the consistency of baby food and several times a day without the mother. After weaning, feed as much of this mixture as the kitten will eat within 30 minutes, 3 to 4 times a day. As the kitten grows older, change to a totally dry feeding regimen by gradually decreasing the amount of added liquid and decreasing the number of feedings.
Pregnant and nursing queens: The pregnant queen needs only slightly more food during pregnancy until she is ready to have her kittens. After queening, her food requirements are greatly increased, depending on the number of kittens she is nursing. Many nursing queens continue to do well on a totally dry feeding regimen, although some need to have their food moistened to meet the increased fluid requirements.
Mixing other liquids or premium canned foods with PetGuard Premium Dry Cat Food: If you prefer to fed Pet Guard Premium dry cat good moistened, mix 1 part liquid (water or broth) with 4 parts of PetGuard Premium dry cat good by volume and feed twice a day. The average adult cat needs about 4 ounces daily, although this will vary with size, sex, age and environment. If you mix it with canned foods, limit the amount of the canned food to one-third or less of the total diet.
Note: Varying your cat's diet by adding portions of fresh meat and vegetables is a natural approach to nutritional well being.
Remember the water! Be sure your cat always has plenty of fresh, clean drinking water. An adequate water intake is as imperative to your pet as it is to you in achieving good health. Supply fresh, clean water regularly.
Making the switch
To accustom your cat to a new food, we suggest mixing the new food with his or her current food. Gradually reduce the amount of the current food until your cat is eating the proper ration of PetGuard Premium dry cat food. Whenever in doubt, consult your veterinarian.
