Why is Markus Mühle different?
Markus Mühle natural dog food is as natural as possible complete dog food, which contains all the important nutrients naturally provided by prey. This top quality cold pressed product is suitable for all dogs and is full of power. The nutritional specialists at Markus Mühle exclusively offer a complete dog food, which works hand in hand with nature.Over thousands of years, dogs have developed as prey animals. In the wild they would feed on berries, herbs, fish and insects, but mainly on a variety of prey, of which they eat not just meat, but bones, offal body fluids, tripe, stomach, and partially digested grass, fur and more. This kind of diet would provide them with all nutrients they need to stay healthy and thrive. The best diet for dogs would be natural prey- but this is not easy to achieve. This fact is the principle behind the development of Markus Mühle. And the result is a unique as natural as possible complete dog food.
The analyses of animal experts have proven that Markus Mühle natural dog food is rich in minerals and provides a balanced proportion of amino acids as required by dogs.
Markus Mühle is a family run business based in the Westerwald in the middle of Germany. Using the cold pressed method makes this dog food simply unique. The chunks promote teeth cleansing and satisfy the chewing instinct. The dog food is gluten free, contains protein only from poultry, venison, fish and eggs and has no artificial flavourings or attractants.
What is cold pressed??
