Specifically designed for Puppies & Dogs that need a High Quality Raw, Human Grade, Single Protein Low Purine Diet.
Like all our Somerford Raw & Natural products our Low Purine range contains
NO Artificial Additives, NO Chemicals, NO Artificial Flavours or Colours
& NO Grains or Fillers.
We are the only Australian Raw Food company that does a Low Purine formulation, the reason behind this is that we have been approached by owners of dog breeds that need a low purine diet to come up with a formula specifically designed for them.
Due to a genetic anomaly, Dalmatians & other effected breeds normally lack the ability to convert uric acid. This condition is called hyperuricosuria (HU or HUU for short), meaning having excess uric acid in the urine. These dogs need to be fed a Low Purine Diet.
Our Low Purine Range is different from our normal Somerford Raw & Natural recipe as it contains NO OFFAL & NO BREWERS YEAST and is made from premium quality Low Purine Meats & Bone such as Hunter Valley Turkey, New England Beef & Tasmanian Salmon, in addition we have added fresh low purine nutrient rich Australian fruit & vegetables such as cabbage, celery, carrots, pumpkin, apples, bananas, blueberries & strawberries making this a naturally complete & balanced Low Purine diet for your Puppy or Adult Dog.
We have carefully selected the best natural ingredients that are low in purine & added other beneficial natural additives like
Cranberry Powder, Kelp Powder, Flax Seed Oil, Hemp Seed Oil, Coconut Oil, Green Tripe & Kefir for additional bladder health & overall well being of your dog or puppy.
(Ingredients added depend on protein selected, see full ingredients list on individual product pages from links below)
BREEDS THAT BENEFIT FROM A LOW PURINE DIET INCLUDE -
Our low purine range is the perfect choice for pancreatitis (the inflammation or swelling of the pancreas). Although some breeds are more prone to suffering from canine pancreatitis, one of the main triggers is a high fat diet. Somerford Raw & Naturals low fat & low purine varieties help alleviate pressure on the surrounding organs with regards to the filtering or uric acid.
(please note Low Purine Salmon is high in fat so should be avoided by dogs with pancreatitis)
