First, Tell Me About The Benefits

These delicious treats feature a gut-friendly combination of whole superfoods and protein rich ingredients to support your pet's immune system and overall wellness. Whether your pet prefers Beef or Venison , your choice of high-quality protein for this recipe will provide your pet with the energy their body needs.

Pumpkin is a great superfood and an excellent source of soluble and insoluble fiber, which supports proper digestion and regulating stool. This ingredient is also abundant in vitamin A (beta-carotene), an important vitamin that helps your pet's skin and coat.  Eggs are nature's perfect protein, providing essential amino acids to support muscle growth and metabolism. It's no wonder why these key ingredients can be found in all Solid Gold dry recipes !

After cooking, try sprinkling  Solid Gold SeaMeal Powder  on top for additional digestive and immune support!
