Alfalfa Meal - the aboveground part of the alfalfa plant, freed from other fodder plants, weeds, molded, dried in the sun and finely ground.
Animal digest (Animal Digest) material that is obtained by chemical and / or enzymatic hydrolysis of clean, undecomposed animal tissue. The animal tissues used should be free of hair, horns, teeth, hooves and feathers, except for such trace amounts as may inevitably be present in good factory practice and which are suitable for animal nutrition.
Animal Fat - obtained from animal and / or poultry tissue in the process of industrial melting or extraction. It is predominantly composed of fatty acid glycerol esters and does not contain any free fatty acid additives. If an antioxidant is used, the common name or names must be indicated followed by the words “used as a preservative”.
Barley - consists of at least 80% ground barley and must not contain more than 3% heat damaged grain, 6% foreign material, 20% other grains, or 10% wild oats.
Barley Flour is a soft, finely ground and sifted barley flour obtained from the milling of barley. It consists mainly of starch and plant protein endosperm.
Beef (Meat) - pure flesh obtained from slaughtered cattle and limited to that part of the striped muscle, which is skeletal or that which is in the tongue, diaphragm, heart or esophagus; with or without accompanying or overlying fat and parts of the skin, tendons, nerves and blood vessels that normally accompany the flesh.
Beff Pulp (beet pulp, dried black syrup and beet pulp, dry, plain) - dried residue of sugar beet.
Brewer's Rice is the dry, extracted grain residue from the wort (the liquid portion of the malt grain) or beer and may contain no more than 3% pulverized dry spent hop cones.
Brown Rice - Unpolished rice after grains have been removed.
Carrots - Presumably carrots. There is no AAFCO definition.
Chicken - pure combination of flesh and skin, with or without bones, obtained from parts or whole body of chicken or a combination thereof, without feathers, heads, legs and entrails.
Chicken Byproduct Meal consists of the milled clean body parts of slaughtered chicken, such as the neck, legs, undeveloped eggs and featherless entrails, with the exception of such amounts that may inevitably be present with good processing techniques.
Chicken Liver Meal - Chicken liver, milled or otherwise ground into small particles.
Chicken Meal - Chicken that has been ground or otherwise ground into small particles.
Corn is an unspecified grain product.
Corn Bran - The outer shell of the grain, with little or no starchy part of the germ.
Corn Germ Meal (Dry Milled) - is ground germ of grain, which consists of germ of grain and other parts of the grain from which some of the oils have been removed and is a product obtained during the dry milling process in the manufacture of grain flour, oatmeal, crushed corn and other grain products.
Corn Gluten - that part of the grain in the shell that remains after the extraction of most of the starch, protein and after the processes involved in the process of obtaining grain starch or syrup by wet grinding.
Corn Gluten Meal is the dried residue obtained from the grain after removing most of the starch and germ and separating the bran in the process of obtaining starch or syrup by wet grinding or by enzymatic treatment of the endosperm.
Corn Syrup is a concentrated juice obtained from grains.
Cracked Pearl Barley - obtained from the production of pearl barley from pure barley.
Dehydrated Eggs - Whole dried bird eggs, freed from moisture by thermal means.
Beef Digest (Digest of Beef) - a material from beef that is obtained by chemical and / or enzymatic hydrolysis of clean, undecomposed tissue. The tissues used must be free of hair, horns, teeth and hooves, except for such trace amounts as may inevitably be present in a good manufacturing process.
Digest of Beef By product - a material from beef that is obtained by chemical or enzymatic hydrolysis of clean and incomplete tissue from unprocessed clean parts, other than meat, obtained from livestock, which include (but are not limited to): lungs, spleen, liver, brains, kidneys, blood, bones, fatty tissues partially defatted at low temperatures, stomach and intestines, free of contents. It does not include hair, horns, teeth, and hooves.
Good water is essential for healthy plant and animal life in ponds. What is water quality? This concept includes two parameters. The first is the chemical composition , including hardness, pH, alkalinity, nitrite and ammonia content, and other chemical elements and additives
Any organism, from the moment of fertilization, carries an inherent individual set of genes that determine the manifestation of the properties of the central nervous system. This means that individuals, under favorable conditions, have this or that predisposition in their development, characteristic of a given population
In today's European and American markets, the struggle for superiority among elite dry dog food is intensifying . The echoes of this struggle also reach the Russian feed market, which is going through its first stages of development.In the West, this struggle manifests itself in new pricing structures, the constant introduction of new products and re-packaging of old ones, in new market initiatives - all of which will help keep the leading brands under pressure in this growi
The basis for choosing the optimal food for an individual dog is an understanding of metabolism. Metabolism is a complex process in which researchers and scientists find new things almost daily. The balance of all nutrients is one of the most important criteria and the key to solving many problems. A
Guarding food or toys from other animals is normal behavior in dogs. This instinct occurs when a dog feels threatened by other pets for its food or toys. In a wild pack, dogs guard their food in order to subsequently eat it and survive. Dogs higher in the hierarchy have the right to take food from those members of the pack who are lower than them
