Nutrients & Benefits

Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids
Found throughout the body, especially the brain and eyes. As you might expect, these nutrients are crucial for supporting healthy brain function, growth, and development (particularly for puppies and kittens). But they also play an important role in helping your pet’s blood vessels, heart, immune system, and lungs work properly. They’re also great for supporting healthy skin and coat. Poultry is an important source of Omega-6 fatty acids, while New Zealand green mussels and other seafoods are a good source of Omega-3 fatty acids.

 

Glucosamine and Chondroitin
Glucosamine is a combination of ‘glucose’, a sugar, and ‘glutamine’, an amino acid. It helps form and repair cartilage. Together, they’re ideal for building healthy joints and resisting joint tissue breakdown - particularly crucial for our senior pets and puppies. Beef, lamb, poultry, and bones are a good source of these nutrients.

 

Taurine
An amino acid and one of the building blocks of all proteins. Necessary to maintain normal vision, digestion, heart muscle function, and to maintain a healthy immune system. Dogs can make taurine, but cats rely on taurine exclusively from their diets. All animal proteins are an excellent source.

 

Calcium
Calcium builds and maintains strong bones. But it’s also needed for the heart, muscles, and nerves to function properly. In the wild, cats and dogs would eat bones along with meat to get the calcium they need. We think they have the right idea, so ZIWI Peak recipes include ground bone to reflect what your pet would eat in the wild.
Phosphorus
Phosphorus is essential in the formation of bones and teeth, so essential for our young pups and kittens. It is needed to make protein so the body can grow, repair, and maintain its cells. Phosphorus also helps the body make ATP, a molecule the body uses to store energy. Phosphorus is found in bony raw materials, which is why ZIWI Peak recipes include ground bone.
Sodium
Sodium is beneficial for focus and mood, heart and blood health, weight maintenance, and fluid balance. Puppies and kittens in particular require sodium to support healthy growth. Sources include meat and seafood, and salt.
Potassium
This mineral regulates fluid balance, and muscle and nerve health. It is also important for normal function of the heart muscle. Red meats, poultry, and fish are great sources of naturally occurring potassium.

 

Vitamin A
This supports healthy eyes and night vision (especially important to cats!) as well as the formation of organs and structures in growing animals, and immune function. Liver is a rich source of Vitamin A, which is why ZIWI Peak recipes include liver.
Vitamin D
Calcium builds and maintains strong bones, while Vitamin D helps the absorption of calcium in the intestines and regulates the amount of calcium excreted by the kidneys. Your pet can have all the calcium they want; without Vitamin D, they’ll have trouble absorbing it. Fish is a fantastic source of Vitamin D.
Magnesium
Magnesium plays a vital role in just about every process in the body. Important for bone mineralization, muscle contraction and relaxation (i.e. movement), and neuronal signal transduction. A source is New Zealand green mussels.
Chloride
Helps support healthy growth and development of puppies and kittens, fluid balance, and important for coordination and balance. Good sources include white meats, fish, and salt.
Methionine
Methionine supports good urinary health, reducing the risk of kidney disease, bladder stones, and struvite crystal formation. This nutrient is important for skin and coat health, eye health, heart health, and more. It is also one of the essential amino acids required and is a precursor to other amino acids like cysteine which can then be converted to taurine by dogs. Fish is a good source, along with meat.
