Proper Fuel

Always meat first

Real meat and fish are the first ingredient in all Essence recipes. It’s important to us that your dog gets the highest quality protein and nutrients, and you can only get that from meat. That’s what their ancestors ate, and that’s what dogs should be eating now. Animal proteins, of the highest quality. That is what carnivores crave. That is what Essence provides.

Essentials vitamins

& Minerals

Essential vitamins and minerals round out Superior Nutrition. In nature, carnivores get what they need from the food they eat. However, it can be inconsistent at times, depending on the food available. That’s why Essence provides your dogs with a full complement of essential vitamins and minerals. Even nature can sometimes need a helping hand. Essence makes sure your dogs are getting their daily intake of important vitamins and minerals so that they are never deprived of these essential nutrients.

Essence Recipes

AIR & GAMEFOWL

Made with healthy guinea fowl, flavorful duck, lean turkey, and tender chicken, our Air & Gamefowl recipe is packed with tasty goodness and loaded with protein. Added to that are healthy vitamins, minerals, and other healthful nutrients, so not only will your dogs love the taste, it’s also good for them too. Essence Air & Gamefowl – the Embodiment of Superior Nutrition.

Ocean & freshwater

Our Ocean & Freshwater recipe is made with herring, sardines, mackerel, and salmon. These fish contain significant amounts of healthy oils and omega-3 fatty acids that promote healthy hearts. They’re also high in protein for strong bodies. Added to that are healthy vitamins, minerals, and other healthful nutrients, so not only will your dogs love the taste, it’s also good for them too. Essence Ocean & Freshwater – the Embodiment of Superior Nutrition.

Ranch & Meadow

Exotic boar, lean goat, healthy lamb, and delicious pork. These are the first four ingredients in our Ranch & Meadow recipe. They provide unmatched quality of protein, but with lower fat and calories than beef. They also come from clean, sustainable farms. Added to that are healthy vitamins, minerals, and other healthful nutrients, so not only will your dogs love the taste, it’s also good for them too. Essence Ranch & Meadow – the Embodiment of Superior Nutrition.

Essence is committed to the highest protein in the market. That’s why our recipes feature 85% protein, which is one of the highest available anywhere. This ensures your pets have healthy bodies, keen minds, and radiant spirits.

Grains

Cultivated grains have been around for only 10,000 years. For any creatures in the wild, the addition of grains to their diet is not very common. This is why Essence chooses to not include grains in our recipes, as they are just common filler.

Potato

High in carbohydrates, potatoes have been known to cause possible food sensitivities in some pets. Potatoes do not provide any significant nutritional benefits, but are often used as common filler. Essence does away with potatoes as they are an unwanted and unneeded source of empty calories.

Alfafa

Like soy, alfalfa sprouts contain estrogen, which is not an essential nutrient for dogs or cats. Some pets are able to eat it. However, many pets can experience indigestion and even vomiting. Essence excludes alfalfa from our recipes to ensure dogs and cats with sensitivities are not affected.

Peas

Peas are used a lot in pet food, mainly as binders. While they can have some benefits, too much isn’t very ideal either. Peas can cause the body to produce uric acid, which can end up in the kidneys. [This can cause problems with the kidneys.] Essence eliminates peas from all our recipes.

Flex Seed

Flaxseed can cause some discomfort in the digestive system, such as gas and bloating, abdominal pain, and other unpleasant side effects. Flaxseed is also rarely eaten by animals in the wild other than birds (due to birds having gizzards). Therefore, Essence does not use flaxseed in any of our recipes.

Sunflower Oil

Sunflower oil is high in omega-6 fatty acids. While it can be a beneficial nutrient, it must be mixed with omega-3’s in the correct ratio. We aim to promote a balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids to reduce the possibilities of potential inflammation in the cells.

At Essence, we’re all about mixing it up. The same old flavors and recipes can feel stale after a while. That’s why we use novel protein sources, including a diverse variety of fish, poultry, and red meat to excite the taste buds. This also helps to keep our recipes hypoallergenic.
