Solid Gold Health Products For Pets, Inc., has been a pioneer of natural, holistic animal nutrition since 1974. We now have a line of nine dry dog and cat foods as well as a line of canned dog and cat foods and nutritional supplements, treats, and topical products.
All our dry and canned dog and cat foods are wheat, corn, and soy free. We use healthy oils packed with omega fatty acids such as canola oil and salmon oil. Over the years we have updated our formulas as new nutritional research has become available. For instance, a few years ago we added taurine to all our dry dog foods to help protect against dilated cardiomyopathy.
Solid Gold is also an industry leader in the use of revolutionary foil “barrier” packaging for all our dry food products, which means we don’t have to use chemical preservatives or flavor enhancers. Barrier packaging keeps food fresher longer, maintains palatability, and helps to sustain the potency of valuable vitamins and other nutrients, which may deplete over time with conventional paper bags.
The concept behind holistic health care is that the body should be viewed as a whole structure and not regarded just as a collection of individual parts. All systems within an organism are connected with one another in some way, and any imbalance may disrupt other body systems before physical signs are seen.
All aspects of a disorder should be considered in the planning and implementation of a treatment regime, as opposed to treating only the apparent clinical signs themselves. For example, a dog that suffers from chronic skin irritation, ear infections, or chews incessantly at his feet, should not just be treated with steroids, antibiotics, or topical applications. The cause should be determined and addressed. Foot-chewing and chronic ear infections are classic signs of food allergies in dogs. Often, a simple change in diet combined with support for the immune system, will rectify the problem within days.
Solid Gold selects ingredients from around the world, to produce foods and supplements, which can be used in conjunction with each other. This promotes a healthful whole body, whose systems work in harmony and are enhanced to their maximum potential.
