The Hungry Puppy is a proud carrier of Boreal because they provide healthy nutrition with healthy ingredients for healthy pets. Over the past 30 plus years they have been committed to nutrition and dog health issues and are more convinced than ever that all of us must change how we feed our dogs!
Using primarily Canadian ingredient sources, Boreal dog foods will allow you to control the protein and carb sources you feed and help keep weight off and your dog’s energy levels where they belong. Most of their foods use a single source protein, and they lean heavily on peas and beans to keep their foods healthy. They have added an antioxidant and a prebiotic package to their blends to cover not only taste, but digestion and health concerns.
Boreal is trying to reduce the wrong kind of carbohydrates and focus on low GI – glycemic index – starches. By basing their foods on low GI foods like peas, beans and single protein meat sources, your pet will feel full longer after they eat and the diet will help keep blood sugar levels from fluctuating.
They add Availa Pet, an easily absorbed trace mineral package containing zinc, iron and manganese to all their pet foods for important health benefits.
They have two lines of canned foods - a new Canadian-made lineup of Cobb Chicken, Heritage Turkey, Canadian Duck, Atlantic Salmon, Angus Beef and NZ Lamb and a Red Meat Tuna line from Thailand. Boreal Wet Food is Grain Free, Gum Free, and Potato Free - a limited ingredients diet that is high meat and low carb. Like their dry foods their new wet foods have Availa Pet - Organic Zinc for Healthy Skin and Coat.
