How to Slurp!
Pour some Slurps into an empty food bowl between meals, or take with you on walks/road trips and pour into a portable bowl.
Or pour over your dog’s normal food. (This is also a great way to stimulate fussy eaters into licking the bowl clean!) Remember to always have a bowl of drinking water nearby as Slurps is a complementary beverage.
What are the ingredients in Slurps?
2) Organic meat stock base contains organic chicken/beef broth and salt as a preservative.
This equates to 1% salt content in Slurps. We don’t add any additional salt into Slurps.
3) Anchovy/sardine oil from Iceland.
Small fish are a very high source of Omega 3. They are also much more sustainable than larger (older) fish such as cod
4) Natural emulsifier (lecithin).
Emulsifiers ensure there is a consistent mix of all the ingredients in Slurps.We do not add preservatives, sugar, citric acid or other acidifier in to Slurps
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Are Slurps suitable for Gluten Free diets?
A Yes. There are no gluten containing ingredients in Slurps
Q Is Slurps suitable for pancreatitis?
A We’ve been told that dogs with pancreatitis cannot have anything with over 6% fat content. The only fat used in Slurps is fish oils which make up just 2.15%. Please check with your vet first.
Q How is there so much Omega 3 in Slurps?
A Our fish oils have a very high Omega 3 (EPA & DHA = the good stuff) content compared to other pet foods. They come from small fish like anchovies and sardines which are packed with Omega 3 and a lot more sustainable than bigger fish which take longer to grow.
In case you were wondering, here’s a few things that Omega 3 is good for:
- Promotes a healthy skin and coat
- Omega-3 essential fatty acids can reduce skin inflammation caused by allergies, fleas, scratching etc. as well as improve the ‘shine’ of the coat.
- Supports a healthy cardiovascular system
- Omega-3 essential fatty acids can reduce cholesterol and triglycerides (fats) levels in the blood, which can help promote a healthy heart.
- It helps boost older pets’ immune systems
- Senior pets often have weaker immune systems and are much more prone to inflammation and infection
n.b. There doesn’t appear to be a guideline dose of EPA and DHA for dogs in the UK so we used the recommendation from The National Research Council in the USA. They have established a safe upper limit of EPA and DHA for dogs which works out to 20-55mg combined EPA and DHA per pound of body weight. We’ve translated that into Slurps by assuming two portions a day of our guideline amount.
