What Makes Lucy Pet Kibble So Different and Amazing?
Lucy Pet is proud to work with Dr. George C. Fahey, one of the world’s leading experts in animal nutrition. Our Formulas for Life(™) diets are based on Dr. Fahey’s 40+ years experience. His extensive body of published nutrition research has established him as a bona fide expert in the pet industry worldwide. He heads our team of nutritionists to ensure our diets are precisely balanced and formulated. The beauty of Lucy Pet is the science behind our diets, so each kibble has the extensive experience of our team of nutrition experts.
As we mentioned earlier, the quality of raw ingredients makes a difference. We go above and beyond to source quality ingredients such as French and USA-grown duck meat, US grown quinoa, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, wild Alaskan salmon, and more. All of our dog and cat foods are super-premium formulations, and we also offer a limited ingredient diet formula option, ideal for dogs with food sensitivities. Our ingredient approach uses natural ingredients, plus added essential vitamins and minerals plus our special Prebiotic Balanced Fiber blend for gut health.
It is important to remember that no single ingredient is the most important in a pet food. Some people will hyper-focus on the first ingredient, or just the first 4-5 ingredients. While these do represent the highest percentage of the formula by weight, a dog or cat would not survive or be healthy on just those first 5 ingredients alone. In fact, it is the combination of all ingredients when digested which contribute to the total nutrient profile and quality of food. It is very important to also understand that meat/fish protein alone does not provide all of the necessary nutrients for dogs and cats. Our kibble is formulated to provide all of the 44 essential nutrients to cats and dogs. Remember that pet food ingredients are designed to work in combination so your dog or cat gets nutritional value throughout the digestion and absorption process. This is one reason why it is so dangerous to feed your pet table scraps or home-cook, your pet will not get all of the essential nutrients for their health.
By using expertly designed, science-based formulas, with whole, fresh ingredients to make our kibble, we ensure that the pet food not only offers your dog or cat the wide array of essential nutrients needed for their health, and also tastes great. Our ingredients are carefully chosen by an experienced expert who has built relationships over the years with trusted suppliers. Our ingredient team has visited and checks the places where many ingredients are farmed, grown or sourced, such as pumpkin patches and quinoa fields in California. We use these local ingredients in our Salmon, Pumpkin and Quinoa Formula and Duck, Pumpkin and Quinoa kibble diets. These ingredients in combination with the rest of the formula provide all of the required nutrients, including our special blend of prebiotic fibers and proteins that promote a healthy digestive system. Quinoa, an ingredient not commonly found in dog kibble is an excellent source of healthy proteins, amino acids, fiber, and energy. It helps to keep your dog or cat feeling great, with great looking skin and coat too.
Quality of Manufacturing
Lucy Pet foods can’t be made just anywhere. While there are lots of places that produce pet food, not all will meet our specifications, or allow Lucy Pet to inspect and set our requirements. That’s why we only make our foods at certain plants, and also rely on our nutrition experts, including Dr. George C. Fahey for input as to who makes our food.
The Health Benefits
It is no accident that our kibble is packed with nutrients and health benefits. Dr. George C. Fahey and our team of nutrition experts formulated our recipes with the specific goal to focus on creating better gut health. Science shows that a healthy gut is the key to overall better health and the first line of defense to fight disease. Our kibble includes beneficial ingredients for digestive gut health that other kibble do not have.
One such example is our trademarked “P.B.F.” Prebiotic Balanced Fiber™, which is a special blend only used by Lucy Pet that helps your pet achieve the optimal balance of bacteria in their digestive tract. Prebiotic Balanced Fiber™ is a creation which is based on 40 years of experience and research by Dr. George C. Fahey at the University of Illinois. All pet foods have fiber in their formula. However, they do not have our specific P.B.F. Prebiotic Balanced Fiber blend created by Dr. George C. Fahey after years of proven research.
In addition to our P.B.F. blend, all Lucy Pet kibble includes the necessary vitamins and minerals to ensure your dog or cat gets the consistent, nutrition required to thrive and live a long, healthy life. Furthermore, the superfood ingredients found in all of our dog and cat kibble contribute to a stronger immune system, which is the first line of defense against viruses and diseases. Plus, the Omega-3 fatty acids we provide guarantee fantastic skin and coat health. Lucy Pet’s kibble is so healthy your pet will feel and look great in no time at all.
Dogs and cats absolutely love Lucy Pet kibble. When you feed your pet a super premium, high-quality Kibble dog food with delicious and nutritious ingredients like wild Alaskan salmon or premium US and French duck meat, those kinds of quality proteins make a difference in the taste. Plus our kibble formulas use quality duck fat or chicken fat, which provides energy, quality Omega-3 fatty acids, and makes our kibble smell great so they are sure to be excited to eat at every meal. Your pets want real ingredients that they can taste, and with Lucy Pet kibble, that is exactly what they get.
