Dave’s Pet Food prides itself on upholding small-business ideals and ethics while producing top-quality pet foods made with real meat, whole grains, nutrient-rich veggies, and vitamins and minerals for maximum benefit to their furry customers.
They were founded to offer budget-minded pet parents access to high-quality, cost-effective food to keep their cats happy and their bank accounts balanced. Let’s look closer at one of their most popular cat food formulas, Naturally Healthy Grain-Free Tuna Dinner in Gravy.
Restricted Phosphorus Diet
Diets low in phosphorus may help slow the progression of kidney disease and may prevent bone disease and calcifications, according to research. Reducing intake may also prevent bone diseases like osteoporosis. The traditional low phosphorus diet restricts both natural and artificial sources of phosphorus such as whole grains, nuts, legumes, chocolate, and dairy; any intake exceeding Tolerable Upper Intake Levels of 4,000 mg/d for adults aged 19-70 (UL 4,000) or 3,000 mg/d (ULs 3000+) increases one’s risk for diseases associated with overexposure and potential health concerns associated with overexposure and disease risks.
The new guidelines emphasize limiting how much phosphorus people consume through natural food sources and suggest lowering the phosphorus-to-protein ratio of foods and avoiding processed snack foods with added phosphorous. Finally, they recommend eating smaller portions of meat, poultry, fish, eggs, and foods containing additives like flour, vinegar, and salt baking soda.
Check food labels for added phosphates and consult a renal dietitian about limiting naturally occurring phosphorus in meals to maximize meal plan performance while attenuating its impact on kidney health. Dialysis care teams monitor phosphorus levels through monthly lab checks. Any levels exceeding 3.6 mg/dL increase the risks of renal-related bone disease and cardiovascular disease.
Chicken Liver & Chicken Juice Pate
Chicken liver pate is an age-old French recipe with pantry essentials yielding a creamy and luxurious spread. Easy to prepare and sure to impress guests at any dinner party or special gathering, ramekins can even be stored in your refrigerator for any time snacking!
One recipe serves 6-8 people and features the following ingredients:
Twelve cups of chicken livers should be washed, trimmed, and diced before preparation; add one teaspoon of sherry (preferably low in phosphorus; brandy will work just as well), one tablespoon each of thyme (fresh or dried), sage or parsley and 14 teaspoons of salt and 12 teaspoons of black pepper; mix.
Sherry gives this pate its subtle flavor, pairing well with the earthy flavors of sage and garlic. Additionally, its addition helps liquefy livers more easily for mixing purposes. If sherry is unavailable, consider substituting some port or red wine.
The liver is an exceptionally nutritious food source, providing plenty of iron, selenium, and vitamin B12. Plus, it contains antioxidants, which can boost your immunity.
Dave’s Restricted Diet Phosphorus Chicken Liver & Chicken in Juice has been specially developed for cats requiring limited phosphorus intake while offering flavorful nutrition. Furthermore, this grain-free formula does not contain carrageenan to protect their health.
