Frequently Asked Questions

What does 'Holistic' mean?
Holistic, simply put, means entirely, of a whole, used by pet foods as "natural" and wholesome, with all the ingredients being digestible & nutritious!

For Happy Paws, this means:

Brown rice instead of brewers (white) rice which is just filler. Brown rice is a complex carb which is digestible and not just starch!
No ground corn - ground corn is not very digestible even though grinding corn does help pets digest it. Corn gluten meal, which is the protein finnings of corn, is digestible however some cats & dogs are allergic to the proteins or carbs contained in corn!
No white potatoes.
No wheat grains.
No meat meal or bone meal.

How does Happy Paws differ from other "premium foods"?
Happy Paws is Fresh & Natural - made & delivered directly to our distributors - naturally preserved with Vit E & Vit C with no artificial colours, flavours or chemical additives!

At Happy Paws we only use Top Grade chicken, BC fish meal (fresh ocean fish) and 100% New Zealand free range Lamb-meat taken off after people cuts taken, which is then cooked into meal - No by-products! Fruits, veggies and sea salt are then added!

Please refer to the Product Info page for a full list of ingredients.

In our pursuit of "Excellence" we combine all these natural, nutritious ingredients for a total holistic-healthy food for the complete wellness of our pets.

We all know fats or oil can go bad. How does Happy Paws prevent this?
Happy Paws uses Vitamin E and vitamin C, nature's antioxidant. Vitamin E occurs naturally in plant oils to protect against oxidation and protect the original flavour, aroma and colour of our fresh meats. Vitamin C occurs in the natural form of citric acid.

Are natural foods really better?
Many nutritionists & veterinarians are becoming increasingly concerned with use of rendering practices of the pet food industry, including artificial taste enhancers colours chemicals & denaturing products (fuel oil) with no government regulations other than the associations mentioned!

Since Happy Paws pet foods don't contain chemical preservatives, what is the shelf life?
Our dry food maintains its nutritional value and taste for up to 18 months unopened - after opening should be kept cool & dry and eaten within 6 months for best freshness!

Aren't Natural / Holistic pet foods more expensive than grocery brands?
On the shelf - yes. On a cost per serving basis - no! On providing optimum nutrition for health, longevity and performance - no! no! Premium natural pet foods contain high quality, nutrient dense ingredients that promote superior digestibility. This means that the animal will need to consume less to receive the same, or better nutrition. There is also less clean-up.

What about puppy, kitten and senior diet formulas?
Our formula is high-energy, high-density nutrition which can be fed to all stages of your pets' lives and is within the protein levels formulated by our own In-house Veterinarian & Pet Nutritionist to be healthy for Growth & Longevity for all our pets' Life Stages.

How do I know which pet food is best: Natural-Holistic or other brands?
Always - Always read the LABELS! Happy Paws ALWAYS uses the best quality, freshest ingredients available. Compare our ingredient list with other brands and compare cost per kg, and then YOU decide!.
