Large furniture cannot be sent via our standard shipping providers such as DHL and we have to use a freight forwarder for this. Unfortunately, we do not yet have standardized shipping conditions for countries outside the EU, so the delivery costs are so outrageous that we do not offer them in our store (at the moment).
In theory, however, we can send any product to any country. If you are stuck at the checkout due to your delivery area, contact us. We try to find an individual solution for you.
Many vegetable oils consist mainly of omega-6 fatty acids and the few omega-3 fatty acids they contain cannot be metabolized by the cat, as they are only found in their chemical precursors in the vegetable oil. The precursor "alpha-linolenic acid" from the vegetable oil must first be metabolized in the body by the appropriate enzymes to EPA and DHA. This is not a problem for dogs, in cats these enzymes are not active enough and are also present in too small numbers to carry out this synthesis. Vegetable oils are therefore completely unsuitable as omega-3 suppliers for cats. Salmon oil, on the other hand, contains EPA and DHA in direct form, so they can be ingested by the cat without being converted.
For a complete feed that is fed daily, salmon oil is therefore the best choice - it supports the immune system and the health of the heart, skin and coat.
Please follow the instructions below:
- 1) Go to the search engine of your choice
- 2) Type lamb or calf into the search bar
- 3) Find out that these are baby animals just a few months (in some cases weeks) old
- 4) Please question the need to feeding shredded baby cow to your cat and whether said baby cow should be cuddled and petted instead
- 5) Make the world a better place by feeding your floof only food that is made out of adult animals who lived a long and healthy life!
- Please consider to stop buying products containing butchered baby animals for yourself, too.
Long story short: Dry food doesn’t really fit into a natural balanced diet for cats. A lot of when’s and if’s have to be right for you to actually consider feeding it: When it’s high-grade meat protein, when it’s without grain or other plant based ingredients and protein substitutes, when your cat drinks significantly more than it’s internal biology dictates, when your cat is full very early and doesn’t eat much, when your cat is immune to diabetes; if you don’t care about the chance of mites in your food and if you want to feed something that doesn’t even come close to the composition of natural prey animals — then it’s ok! Please note, there are a lot studies that show an increased risk of health issues, such as urinary stones, kidney diseases, allergies and diabetes, with dry feed.
It is important to note that Kittens have an increased need for some nutrients and vitamins (e.g. phosphorus, sodium, copper, manganese, vitamin A, vitamin D). However this doesn’t require a special diet. This need can simply be met by letting the kitten eat as much as it wants in the first year. As a result, it learns to only eat until it’s full and does not swallow the food hectically. In addition, digestive problems, weight problems, overeating and vomiting are avoided.
For this reason we only offer different consistencies. Chunky for those wo like to chew (on stuff and owners), and pureed to a pulp for smol kittens and old toothless fluffs (who might find it hard to chew a lot).
Excellent question! Our marketing team couldn’t have said it better. For starters we’d like to point out that the organic industry is—well exactly that—an industry (that also wants and of course needs to make money). We absolutely support the idea and it’s a huge step into a better world for farm animals. But simply waving around an organic seal isn’t enough.
First: organic farms have very high administrative expenses. It is not primarily how well the animals are doing that matters, but rather you have to comply with the documentation effort (and those can be stupid sometimes and costly for farms), otherwise the seal will not be given to you. So there are farms out there that don’t have or want an organic seal, but are operating under the same or even better conditions.
Second: Some organic seal rules are at least questionable. Organics seals are often subject to pan-European cultivation interests. So yes better, but there is still a lot of room for improvement.
Third: Just because it says organic doesn’t mean it’s 100% organic. All seals have different requirements and all of them allow a portion of nonorganic ingredients.
Fourth: Some animals are nearly impossible to get in organic quality or the amount is so small, that we can’t fill more than a hand full of cans. For example: only 2.4 percent of all turkeys kept in Germany come from organic farming. Not only is the quantity not nearly enough, but also it’s impossible to get a part of that for cat food production. Most of it is obviously used by humans. All other turkeys are fatted animals from torture breeding and we will never ever use those. (Sidenote: that’s why we do not offer a turkey variant of Dynasty® cat food)
With all of this being said, you can help! Stop paying for fatted animals and demand healthy meat whenever you can. The more farms stop using those torture breeds and switch to healthy and slower growing species, living outside, the better our world as a whole will become.
No, that’s normal, especially if you fed average or low quality food before! Sometimes, cats only eat 1/3 of there usual portion after they got into our "dynasty".
All DYNASTY food brands have a much higher nutrient content than inferior brands. Some (unfortunately we are not allowed to say names) use cheap protein alternatives or vegetable fillers like beet pulp. A carnivore like a cat has to eat a lot more of this crap to get their nutritions and actually be full. Which then puts them at risk for getting obese, because a cat’s digestive system is not made for plant fibre consumption. It needs animal proteins. And pretty much only that.
That’s why we use fresh muscle-meat for proteins while innards like heart, liver and kidney provide your floof with minerals like magnesium, iron, phosphor. To finish this off we add just a little bit of vegetable for fibre and vitamins to mimic the composition of prey animals including their stomach content. Our food that is as close to nature as we can get. Therefore your cat needs to eat less of our food while still staying full longer.
Cats are carnivores, dogs omnivores. While dogs can eat almost everything, cats need a special diet. That’s why cat food has a much higher energy content than dog food and should pretty much only consist of animal protein (should because there are a lot of black sheep out there that try to trick you with cheap plant based protein alternatives! Don’t fall for it!).
The biggest difference besides the protein content is taurine, that’s added to cat food. Both cats and dogs need taurine. But the barking tail-wags (dogs) can make their own taurine (from sulfur-containing amino acids, primarily cysteine, but also methionine). However, it is also known that large dogs produce taurine at a slower rate than small dogs, putting them at risk for a deficiency. Genetics also play a significant role, with certain breeds and family lines being predisposed to developing DCM. That being said, if your vet doesn’t tell you otherwise, dogs usually don’t need taurine supplements, therefore it is not added to their feed. It is, especially for large dogs, not a problem if they pug a piece of food from kitty’s dinner plate.
The other way around is not that great! Cats cannot form taurin themselves. So it’s essential to have a high-grade food that includes a sufficient taurine admission. Because if not, they become sterile, blind, deaf, get heart problems, and eventually die.
Cats need taurine, an essential amino acid that they can’t synthesize themselves and must get from their food directly. Dogs on the other hand are able to synthesize taurine themselves, so it’s not added to their food. If your cat only eats dog food, it will develop a severe taurine deficiency over time.
Taurine is exclusively found in animal proteins and is crucial for your cat’s vision, digestion, heart function, fur density and to generally maintain a healthy immune system. Our food mimics the composition of natural prey animals and therefore has a super high meat content and extra taurine added making it a complete feed for cats. Speaking of complete feed—this is the term you want to look for on your cat’s food. Only if those magical two words appear on the can, the much needed taurine amount is actually in there.
By the way: that’s also one reason why we are not fully on board with BARF—if you don’t get the mixture right, your cat’s health is at risk.
